Blood work came back. Basically, her liver and kidneys are shutting down. Two months ago, her blood work came back fine. Now her liver enzymes are elevated to 5 times their normal levels. Her kidneys are 25 points higher than they should be. Vet said that they could put her on IV fluids and another special diet and we might be able to reverse the issue but not likely for a 13 year old dog. Basically told me that if I were to go that route, it would be at least a $2500 proposition and her odds were still only around 30%

I'll be going after work to set up a time for her. I will soon be saying goodbye to my girl.

Did they say if the blood work could be off because she was not eating due to the chipped tooth?

Really sorry to hear Andy. There aren't many things worse then saying goodbye to a good dog.

They expected her blood work to be slightly elevated due to not eating. This is way to high to be attributed to that. Unfortunately, this is just another reason she is not eating.

Speaking of dogs - our dog is getting older as well and since we can't have kids, he gets treated about as well as a lot of kids do and certainly means a lot to us.
Our vet recommends sedating him to get teeth cleaned once a year, and we have done every year for the past 4 years since we got him, but he is taking longer to recover now and I have heard that its not the best idea. We try to brush his teeth, but short of licking the doggie toothpaste off, he isn't patient at all with us and spends more time shaking/twisting his head around and clamping his mouth closed.
Anyone have any experience or recommendations?

we just give our dogs the dental chew stuff. We have noticed a larger buildup on their teeth since we have been out here. I guess that could be due to the hard water too

Your dog should be on a dry food diet. Soft food is not good unless there aren't enough teeth to chew it up. The dental cleanings do help a lot as many fatal infections in older dogs are caused by mouth infections. If your Vet is responsible he should be running blood work before every sedation and can use that info to decide whether your dog is a candidate for sedation. I worked at a clinic for 5 yrs as I was training to become a vet and never saw a dog or cat not make it through sedation. With that being said we always ran blood panels and made informed decisions. I would say your dog would probably be fine as long as the vet says it is ok.
