We got back the results of Yosha’s blood work; it would seem that his kidneys aren’t functioning at full capacity. Which might even explain the vision problems: kidney problems can lead to high blood pressure can lead to vision problems. We’ll see; we’ve gotten bags of special “easy on the kidneys” dog food, and hopefully various matters will improve.

Certainly he peed a lot less today than he had been doing in previous days. A good sign, though it’s rather too early to declare victory: there was poop all over the carpets, so probably not enough stuff was making it into his blood in the first place to really tax his kidneys. I’m not particularly worried about the poop; this sort of thing happens when changing from one kind of dog food to another. That should settle down in a few days, after which we’ll have a better idea of the new food’s affects.
