My dog has canine kidney failure, the vet says to put her down, anyone treat a dog with this disease?
She’s 11 and still knows what’s going on and get’s excited for walks, but isn’t eating much, I just don’t want to get rid of her.
Answer by JR
Renel failure is bad news.
There is not cure. You may be able to sustain her for a while but it is enevitable.
Answer by iluvtorofl
Feed her a highcarb diet with very little protein and give IV fluids when necessary. You might have another ten to twelve months together this way. If she is in severe Kidney Failure with several other organ failures then do put her to sleep. It is kinder than letting her die one breath at a time.

I am sorry about your dog.
I think what you need to focus on right now is if your pet has a quality of life. If she is still enjoying her doggie things, then maybe extended medical treatment is warranted. If she is winding down and not having a great quality of life, then it might be time to consider easing her pain and letting her go with dignity. She might be in pain and hiding it well. I don’t think your vet suggests that route lightly, so you will have to be prepared for that reality and think of your dog. Be strong and do what is best for the dog. Good luck.
