Vet just called. Georgie is in stage two renal failure, which isn't bad at all. His BUN is 35, his creatinine is 2.7.
So, the vet's calling in an order of Calcitriol for him (it's from a pharmacy in Arizona) and George should do well on that alone. No fluids! Yay!
Georgie is also slightly anemic, so this stuff should help that, I guess.
Cost of today's visit - $176.85. Now for his meds....
Calcitriol...$47.00. Probably a couple of months' worth.
