Hi everyone,

I have a 4 year old schnauzer.  His name is Charlie.  Several weeks ago he presented with vomiting but no lethargy, excess urination or water intake.  My vet believed that it was his pancreas because schnauzers often struggle with digestion.  Today we found out that his kidney's are failing.  He is vomiting, his breath smells and he's lethargic.  The vet is giving him IV fluids and waiting to see if his test results improve.  This dog is my baby.... Do I have any reason to hope?
