The Adventures of a Tripawd Boxer


Kidney trouble?

Well….no more injected antibiotics for Bubba.  The blood tests were within normal limits, but the doctor was not happy with the urinalysis.  The antibiotic he was on is toxic to the kidneys.  This is a double-edged-sword: he needs the antibiotic to get rid of the infection but the one that works best can destroy his kidneys.

This morning, I woke up to 2 accidents in the living room.  It has been 4 days since the last injection and I hope that his kidneys can recover from any damage.  His next appointment is tomorrow and I am hoping for good news!  The hardest thing about these vet appointments is trying to entertain 3 kids while waiting for bloodwork results!  Last time, we played a game of Simon Says.  I Spy has already been exhausted as there is not much to the exam rooms!

I’m also starting to think that Bubba is taking advantage of this situation.  He pooped in the neighbor’s yard!  Not allowed!!  He know’s that.  Everyday, I tell him the same thing, “Get up.  Go potty, STAY IN YOUR YARD!”  Compliance with the rules is not his priority right now.  I am just as guilty because I reward him with a treat for getting the job done on 3 legs.  If my neighbors see me wandering around at odd hours with a shovel in hand, think nothing of it….and I apologize for any doodie drops gone unseen…

What? I didn’t do it?
