Billy's kidney bloodwork came back from the Kenmore Vet. It has landed him a multi-day stay in the hospital.
Like his brother, Billy has long term kidney issues, but multiple indicators have spiked which suggest a UTI has reached his kidneys. Treatment is subcutis fluids and antibiotics at levels we can't give him at home.
Because Kenmore Veterinary Hospital is a daytime operation, we were going to take him to AES Kirkland, but they are short staffed. Thus, we all got a trip to Emerald City Emergency Clinic down in Wallingford.
We left Billy there before he got examined, we're waiting for the call with a status update now.
Update: Vet has called. No new news really.
