Last Friday, I dropped off Tildy at the kennel for a weekend stay. I updated Kay, the owner of the kennel, about Tildy’s frequent accidents. She told me that her little dog went through the same thing and it turned out to be renal failure. Sufficiently scared out of my mind, I called the vet and got an appointment for first thing Monday morning.
When I picked up Tildy on Sunday, Kay told me that they hadn’t noticed anything like the bladder emptying episodes that I had described. Hmmm….
Sunday night, I was not awakened by a wet spot or a request to go outside. Something in my gut told me to cancel the appointment, but I ignored that feeling and we went to the vet anyway.
Monday night, no accidents and no requests to go outside.
The vet called with the lab results on Tuesday evening. A series of tests and $300 later, I’m told that there is nothing wrong with her. The vet increased her dosage of Proin and told me to keep watch on her.
Tuesday night, no accidents and no requests to go outside.
Last night, the day after receiving the news from the vet, she had an accident and didn’t request to go outside.
I’m thoroughly exhausted, frustrated, and confused.
