Bobo Is On Diuretic

Direct Link : Vimeo Here and Youtube Here

Brought Bobo to the vet this afternoon as he was weak and no energy to move this morning. No appetite to eat either. He is now on Furosemide medicine which need to take twice a day in addition to the previous medication. The vet also did a scan on his abdomen to see whether there was fluid at the organs and kidney area. Luckily there was no fluid accumulating which is a good thing. If there was fluid accumulating, meaning the heart is weak and not function properly. At the time of writing this, he is sleeping and not moving much. He also urinated just now and it was expected due to the diuretic treatment.

Attached were some blood test report, x-ray the other day and the previous vet bills. The Creatine Kinase (CK) is very high, 280 U/L. Normal range for dogs is between 36-155.

Oh Thomas...I am so sorry that Bobo is sick...but he is in great hands! I just wish I could help you, when one of our "kids" are sick, the best thing is to have friends near by! (thankfully you have many beautiful online friends that are always there for you!!). I am keeping Bobo in my prayers every day as well you and your family. Bobo will be fine.
