We took Dakota back to the specialist for a check-up. Her blood pressure was still under control but all her kidney levels measured from her blood were worse. Like 25%. It was a surprise although she has been sluggish a little more this week than prior. She was at the doggy day care during my race last weekend so it might be a fluke. Maybe she didn’t get her meds or got over-exerted. Or maybe she is just ready to be done. We aren’t but it felt like we moved a step closer with this check-up. We are going to see how we can stabilize her this week and make another call on what to do next Friday.
