Update: I am not sure where to go with Rocky anymore. He's so full of life half the time, and the otehr time he's lethargic and unresponsive. He truly has the attitude (in regards to urinating in the house unexpectedly) of "yeah, so what? it happens." I've become a big fan of the swiffer wet-jet (thank god for hardwood floors!).
We are back to kenneling him during the day (I work full time) as he would rip the belly band off, eat the soiled pad, and then go pee on my piano… again.
His last blood work up revealed that his kidneys are doing okay all things considered (not in failure yet), just not responsive to ADH anymore, ergo he has no clue when he has to urinate.
I have tried to get on the Fanconi listeserve but twice now no one has contacted me to advise that I'm either in or out. Somewhat frustrated by this and wondering if my computer is speaking to their computers.
The more my husband and I talk themore it is becoming apparent that Rocky will not be long for this world. Unless either he (once he returns from NG duty in May) or stay home during the day, Rocky will not be able to continue a good quality of life with us for long. I'm pushing it as it is working away from home 12 hours a day. He tries so hard to be a good boy.
Thank you to everyone for your constant support, thoughts and prayers.
When you are diagnosed with a Fanconi dog, no one can ever explain to you the amount of urine you will be forced to clean, and the lengths to which you will go to make sure your beloved dog is comfortable. No one can describe the heartache either of having to weigh their quality of life with the heartfelt desire to keep them with you always.
Thanks again everyone!
