We've been living with Fanconi for about 6 months. Oh my the ups and downs! No one tells you how quickly they can take a turn for the worse. Rocky's on the protocol and things have been sailing along wuite well (short of a viral skin infection… unrelated to syndrome). A week ago, he started leaking at night again so we submit him for a urinalysis. All levels look good but no reason so the leakage. So, treating as if he has an infection. All fine and dandy.
Today, Rocky acting a little off. He fell asleep in his doggy bed, and then suddenly sprang up into standing position, and started to pee. I also found urine in the house (on my piano... none too happy about that but what can I do? You can't punish a dog for something they don't realize they are doing.)
It's very frustrating becuase he is so fastidious about keeping clean and his housebreaking habits. I have two young kids and can't have urine all over my house.
At what point do you decide it is enough? I know the correct and right answer is when the dog's quality of life if no longer a good thing. But what about the quality of life for those he lives with? I'm not ready to tell my baby Good-bye... but this is a difficult road we are on... and I'm doing it alone. Feeling very overwhelmed tonight.
Any insight from those who either have lived thru this portiong of the syndrome or are living it now?
