    Default Rayz for Piper Please

    So, a little backstory…Piper was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney disease a little over a year ago. Our vet and the ER internal medicine specialist gave up on him and sent him home for his “final days.” With Lisa’s advice, the use of a holistic vet, and reading for hours and hours about kidney disease, we beat the odds and Piper is still with us. He has his good days and bad. Fast forward to this year and canine cognitive dysfunction has also entered the picture. Man, this has been rough. Again, he has good and bad days with it. Yesterday was not good and then he had a seizure last night. He’s had seizures before, but not frequent enough to be on medication. He is okay today, but I just needed to vent to people that understand. It’s hard seeing him struggle, and to give him proper care has been taxing. We could use a few spare rayz. Thank you for listening!

    Oh honey. Rayz aplenty coming from us! It’s so very hard seeing them getting older and infirm.

    You are such a great dog mom and boy mom - I know you’ve done everything and he is lucky to have you.

    Rays and prayers for the days ahead. Big love from Kentucky.

    I am so sorry I am just seeing this now. CCD is friggin' horrible, and I am 99.9% sure it came with Pixel's kidney's failing too. Pixel was never the brightest so sometimes it was hard to tell if he was struggling or just Pixeling....
    You know I am always here for the bad days. And the good days.
    Old dogs are not for the faint of heart. Everyday is an evaluation and trying to do what is right by them.
    Sending you and PiperMan lots and lots of love.
