Yay for acupuncture!

I'm glad to hear the good news. I hope she continues her improvement.

Unfortunately the news is bad. Although she has continued to drink a lot and wee a lot, she's had hardly any appetite and continued to lose weight and be very weak. Today she's at our vet again on a drip and had more blood tests which show that although her kidney bloods have improved a lot, she's basically still in kidney failure. But her anaemia has resolved. She's such a stoic and strong-willed dog that we want to give her every chance to get over this hurdle but we know the prognosis is poor. Today she'll have nutrients and vitamins and we'll see if that tides her over for a few more days, perhaps weeks. But we're getting ourselves used to the idea that we may not have her for very long at all. It's literally heartbreaking.

Oh, I'm so very sorry to hear this. I am sure you will do everything in your power to help her, and I am sure she knows this. Hang in there.
