Hope

Hope is an English Cream Golden Retriever puppy for adoption from Golden Retriever Rescue Resource
Hope is a 19 week old (2/11) female English Cream golden retriever puppy who was available for adoption. Hope was surrendered to our rescue by the breeder. Hope's mom and dad are cleared for hips, eyes, etc., but things can still happen when the pup is in the womb. Hope unfortunately ended up being an ectopic ureter pup, which means things are not connected the way they should be with her bladder, so she will leak urine all the time. Luckily, there is a surgery that can be done to correct the problem.

Hope had a CT scan done late January and unfortunately the results were not good. Hope has renal dysplasia. Her kidneys are not normal and her life expectancy is two years as she will eventually go into kidney failure.

After lots of research what different people say works best to maintain the kidney numbers, Hope is now getting home cooked meals to control the protein and phosphorus amounts she receives. We are using one of the mixes, Dr. Harvey's Canine Health, then adding whatever is the protein of the day and an Omega 3 fish oil. Plus she is on a renal supplement, a phosphorus binder, a pre and pro biotic and a cranberry supplement. She probably eats better than most of use do! We will be running blood work on her every few weeks to see what her numbers are doing. For now, she is loving her new diet! Hopefully it stays like that for a long time to come. Hope has a permanent position at her loving foster home so we can monitor her. We'll make sure she is loved until she crosses the bridge. We thank those who have donated to Hope's on-going medical care.
