My golden is having some kidney issues and we don't know why yet. I am terrified that he is in the early stages of kidney failure. He is not even 5!!! We have more tests today along with an ultrasound. I am actually hoping they find something...just so we know why this is happening. His symptoms point anywhere from kidney failure to a TBD to Cushings...

Prayers coming your way from CT .. good luck!!

My Casey sometimes has kidney tests come back not so good and has for a few years. His last tests came out just fine but he has had a few TBDs and we keep a close watch on the values .. hopefully your golden will also just be showing intermittent weirdness and it will clear up

Thinking positive thoughts for you. Goldens are prone to nephritis caused by Lyme disease, so make sure they check for that.

sending good thoughts and prayers your way.
Not to try to second guess your vets, but also be sure they test for leptospirosis. Often the early signs are kidney related.
Does he take glucosamine/chondrotin? In some dogs (including my Toby) that can change the results of the kidney tests.
Keep us updated please!

Wishing the best of luck for your dog, I'll pray that your vet could find what's wrong with your dog, so he could get the treatment he needed and recover as soon as possible!
Please keep us updated
