Here's the Abby update:
I paid 229 bucks to find out that she just peed in her sleep for no apparent reason. I was afraid she was very sick with heart worms or diabetes or something and after an exhaustive spree of lab work, xrays, and even an EKG, the vet determined that she's fine as frog hair.
I am very relieved that she does not have heart worms. I'd been worried about that because she has been showing a few symptoms, like coughing, excessive water drinking, and tiredness that reminded me of when my boy Dagget got sick. By the time I realized something was wrong, it was too late to save my little guy. Even though Abby takes her heart worm preventative every month and has not missed a single one, I still worry about it.
So now, she has a clean bill of health, for the most part. The vet said that sometimes when a dog has been spayed, the lack of estrogen gives them a bladder problem. She may have to go on a medication later, if incontinence proves to be a continuing problem.
I guess everything is ok. Abby is back home and we are supposed to watch her for the next couple of weeks and see how she does.
Thanks for the well wishes.
