Hanna recently had her annual vet checkup and vaccines. We decided to do a baseline senior blood panel last week since she turned 10 on 1/1/21.
Vet said the test results are consistent with the condition called proteinuria.
The following values came back high:
Creatinine on 4/8/21 was 2.4 on 4/15/21 it was 2.3 in 2018 value was 1.3 in 2016 value was 1.5 (normal range .5-1.8)
BUN on 4/8/21 was 36 on 4/15/21 it was also 36 in 2018 value was 13 in 2016 value was 15 (normal range 7-27)
An ultrasound was done and came back clear of any tumors. Tests also showed no bacteria or infection issues.
Vet is doing 1 more urinalysis to get a 3rd reading for a reference point to determine medication level.
Hanna has ate Fromm gold for last 8 years, and also has no salt added green beans for last couple of years.
Vet mentioned putting Hanna on a no/low protein no/low salt diet.
Havent received final instructions from vet yet, but wondered if Fromm or any other approved brands have a food for this situation-
