So we continued to deliver pee-samples for testing and the results showed protein leakage (read in the coloured box what that means).
21st of March 2016 – 29th of April 2016
- Manuel was put on yet another medication for the protein leakage.
- In addition to that he got medication that is used for reducing high blood pressure.
Now he did not suffer from high blood pressure but they wanted to reduce the blood pressure in order for the leakage to reduce….
Checking his blood pressure
As they fully understood that we did not want to bring Manuel to the animal hospital unless really necessary they allowed me to check his blood pressure status. Fortunately he had not lost all faith in us so he trusted me in doing this on a regular basis – so I could report to the vet.
During this time Manuel was rather much back to his “normal”.
Your kidneys are filters that don’t usually let a lot of protein pass through. When kidney disease damages them, proteins such as albumin may leak from your blood into your pee. You can also have proteinuria when your body makes too much protein.
This content is written post mortem but the date is set as correct in to relation when it really happened. I think it is very important to share this experience and knowledge but I have not had the energy to do so, until now (2021).
