You are doing your best for your Buddy. He is not alone in the house and has a friend of his own. Hope he continues to do so well, those photos are great. Pain free, surrounded with love and care, your Buddy knows you love him and understands that you are busy at school. Keep up good work. Sending hugs to sweet Buddy.

Just to give an update on buddy, he is doing pretty wonderful. He is living with my brother who has an overweight female golden as well because of her thyroid. I think its a good idea to be around her just so he has some company when people go to work, etc.

He has been bought a bed and he is allowed to roam through the entire house. As far as his health is concerned, the tramadol really makes his wag come back like it used to be when he was a lil pup. My brother gives him the meds morning and night, although he was half a day late telling me that he had ran out. I guess when he ran out, he noticed buddy was hiding (going under the bed, isolating himself in corners with his nose facing the wall, etc.). As soon as he told me I got tramadols on the street within hours then called the vet for a refill. I guess he can take human ones too, they work fine. I made sure there was no aspirin in them as well by looking the imprint online.

He has been taking the azodyl for about a week, I don't see him enough to notice a change. Once a few more weeks go by, I want to bring him back to the vet for more blood work so I can see if his kidney levels went up or down. I hope they get better, I know he's 14, but for his age I really think he's doing better than I've seen others..

His shoulders are thinning though...and his hips are too. It seems like he is getting so skinny but his diet does not allow a lot of protein. He isn't fat at all, pretty lean. I'll get some new photos when I can go see him this week. Its gotta be the arthritis. The tramadol won't fix the problem, but it will make it seem like it isn't bothering him. Thats my only worry... there is no way to reverse it for him.

Its my dream that his kidneys come back and I can get him on metacam or something. I love him ;(

Thanks so much for the update on Buddy and so glad that Buddy is living inside with your brother and has a female friend!!

I wouldn't take or give any pill you bought on the street! How dangerous!

Praying for Buddy as always!! You can tell how much you love him!!

he reminds me of an old man

i'm thankful that he is still here, and without the tramadol, i don't think he'd even be around anymore. he gets so much love, and he's in a good place where he's been at. whenever my brother leaves the house, he still has the other female retriever Lea who is there with him. when my car gets fixed i'm going to try to take some videos.
