My Schnauzer is absolutely the greatest Schnauzer alive!

He is now 12 years old and we have been through a lot lately. Last December,(2009) he was diagnosed with an embedded stone in his urethra, and another one in the bladder. He came through emergency surgery great as he has an exceptional Vet, Dr. Mark Ayres.

We had planned to go to Canada in June of the following year and I noticed he was drinking an unusual amount of water and voiding more. I took him to Dr. Ayres, and he now has diabetes. It has taken a while adjusting his insulin of twice a day ( now on 1.4 units of Novolin N Human insulin) but he is fine, full of vim, vigor and vitality. Dr. Ayres is still being cautious with him and testing ever two weeks. I also check his pH ever week as he is on potassium citrate 7.5 mEq twice a day.

He is taking Upsher brand Extended release tablets in Greenies chicken Pill Pockets. His special food is Purina NF and I make his treats of foods allowed to prevent kidney stones. These treats consist of 1/2 cup peas, six stalks of asparagus, 1/2 cup cabbage, one white potato, 1 boiled chicken breast, low sodium chicken broth, 3.5 cups of buckwheat flour, 2 eggs, two tbsp. olive oil, one banana, and four pieces of melon. All processed together, drop by tsp. to baking pan, baked at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Since there is no preservative, I freeze these and only take out a two day supply to keep in the refrigerator. He loves them!

Treu Kobi looks so sweet. He's so lucky to have you as his mom, and to take care of him. He's a real handsome boy.

Thank you, Ebnenezer's mom. What a beautiful Schanuzer you do have. Kobi is my third one and the best one yet. By the way, you might want to NOT give Ebenezer any peanut butter as that is one product I found that causes stones in this breed. I wish I had done research in the beginning about foods and what Schnauzers are prone to develop. Kobi loved peanut butter and I had given that to him when he was taking omega 3. He does so much for me as I am hearing impaired. He tells me when the phone rings, when someone is at the door, retrieves the morning paper for me as well as companionship.

What an amazing little trooper! Good thing you were on top of his everyday habits, so you could notice the changes in him. He looks well, now. May you have many more years of frolicking and playfulness with him. Bless you both.
