My dad took our dog, Dusty, into the vet this morning because he hadn't been going #1 as often as he used to. Vet did some blood work and found out that he is in the early stages of kidney failure. He must be given certain vitams a day( don't know what ones) and is restricted to what he can eat. I suppose this is to be expected since he is 13 years old. I am pretty upset by this news since I grew up with that dog. (I'm 22). Poor guy.
