I talked to the vet...bloodwork is back, his potassium levels are ok so his bladder is not the issue. he does have a cellulitis and infection in his back foot so it looks like this is mostly what is bringing him down and some dehydration with mild kidney problems too. he is on antibiotics and pain meds and I am to try to find whatever he likes to bump his fluid intake up. I tried him with ice tea..that was a no go. then I tried him with watered down, warm apple and cinnamon oatmeal and he took some of that. lynn is picking me up some apple juice, Gatorade and more oatmeal packets. the vets will be back out on Tuesday for another long acting antibiotic injection..i will give him more metacam by injection tomorrow to help with the pain. HOPEFULLY he will feel a great deal better in a few more days with the meds well under his belt.
hang in there gilbert, be good and drink some more please and we will do whatever we can to get you sorted out.
