For those keeping my cousin's dog, Rex, in your thoughts and who have offered suggestions and advice. Thank you all so much! You have been a comfort and a help. They did finally do an x-ray this morning and they did find a soft mass in his stomach. They then did a sonogram and discovered the mass was actually his swollen kidneys. So the illness was diagnosed as acute renal failure. There was only a 10% chance of survival and he was in a lot of pain and misery. Danielle and her husband, Sammy, made the very hard decision to have him put to sleep. It's is done now and Rex is out of pain and at peace. Thank you all again for all you did to try and help. It was a comfort knowing you were all there!

    I'm really sorry to hear this; the loss of a beloved pet is never, ever easy! It's been more than a year since I lost my girl and I still miss her very, very much! She passed due to her renal failure and age.

I just saw your two posts and decided to read both before posting; when i had my dogs shots a couple months ago, they counseled me that they could cause serious reactions and I was given the option to have them given a pre-shot of something first. I don't recall what they cautioned me to watch for. I'm sad for your family, I know it's tough!
