Please help! My dog has been diagnosed with kidney failure. She will not eat and rarely drink or go to the bathroom. She just lays around, coughs, and vomits flem. The doctor says we need to put her down. The doctor had given her some medicine and vitamins. I am wondering if there is ANYTHING else I can do-special diet, herbs, special vitamins. If there is something I could at least try, even if it fails, I would feel I did everything I could. She got this way after she had vaccinations. She wasn't eating as much this summer. I thought it was due to the heat. But about a week after she had the vaccinations that were due- she stopped eating and drinking completely. We had her tested and found out she has chronic kidney failure and was most likely born with small kidneys and has been surviving regardless: Can you help?
