    Well over the last couple of weeks he has been back a forward to the vets, anyway on Friday took him in with a urine sample and his kidneys are not working as they should do so tomorrow up early and he has to go in for a blood test to try and analysed why.

    I hope all can be sorted as his back legs are going wonky which is a disaster for a huge dog.

    Fingers xxxx

    What's really difficult/upsetting is his brain is still young but the body old.

    S'pose a lot of us can identify with that:Sad:

    John I have been wondering how he was going on, and fingers crossed he will be ok, he is such a character, hope something positive tomorrow.

    hi John with his back legs going and kidneys shutting down I think it may be time to do your best friend the greatest of favours. I know how hard it will be for you but the old boy has had a good run and things are not going to improve for him. Look out for him one last time. I am sorry if that sounds harsh but you know it makes sense. Our thoughts are with you.:Sad:

    Roger let's see what happens when the vet sees if he can medicate his kidneys, they seem positive but know he has arthritis in his rear legs.

    I had to watch my dad suffer, not again to a loved one.

    Got all the bits crossed here for you and Bruno John...

    Really hoping it is nothing major mate, but do listen to the vet and take on board whatever he says..
    Remember, his advise will be based on what is best for Bruno

    I'm thinking of you John. This is a really tough time and it's hard watching Bruno go through this. Fingers crossed that he can be helped. :Smile:

    Best of luck tomorrow and hope you get some positive news. Hardest decision we had to make when we let our Bootsie go (avatar) and you'll know when the time comes, let's hope it's some way off yet.
