Help! My Dachshund is not himself.
I'd really appreciate hearing if this sounds familiar to anyone.
My wife and I have an amazing 9 yr old Dachshund. He's a brown short
hair medium size. Unfortunately, he has not been himself the past few
weeks and I'm very concerned. I've had him at the vet and they did 2
blood test. The first test was so odd they repeated it. With the first
the wondered if he had Addison's. After the second test though they
ruled out Addison's and thought it might be a pancreatic (I think)
problem where his body was over producing insulin thus lowering his
blood sugar. For this they suggested spreading out his meals, which
we've been doing for over a week now. He seemed to perk up at first
but now seems about like before.
Here's a quick run through of the symptom's.
-recently become very lethargic doesn't want to walk anymore
-has drainage from one eye
-gained about 5lbs. in 8 weeks
-abdomen is always very tight as though he just ate a cow.
-has gas like a male beer drinker.
-recently started going into the garbage whenever we forget to close
the pantry door.
-very recently is waking us up in the night to go outside
Tomorrow he's having an ultrasound done to look at his abdomen.
Hopefully, we'll have good news and get to the bottom of this. If this
sounds familiar to you I'd appreciate anything you would be willing to
