The news is somber in the Lilylovekin home. Lily the Bedlington terrier and namesake of this blog is ill. Things do not look too good for her and we are in a state of shock and dismay. Her kidneys are failing her. There is not alot that can be done for kidney disease in a dog and we do not have unlimited resources. Lab work indicated that the progression has been quite rapid in the past 6 weeks, Lily has lost her appetite and has lost weight. It is hard to know your animal is sick and to not be able to do anything about it. We have started her on a special diet and medicine to relieve her nausea. Now we are just watching for further symptoms and will try and keep her comfortable. I have no idea how long this will go on for but my heart is heavy today as I know my little Lovekin is not well.
