Our +$13,000 journey to save his life!

Looking for information and/or experiences with giving your dog Zeniquin? Specifically for an extended period of time? Our dog contracted Pseudomonas while undergoing a common ligament correction surgery and has suddenly started experiencing serious renal issues. He was also on Deramaxx, which was stopped approximately 1 week ago. He's been on Zenigun since mid November.

He is an older dog BUT had above average blood work prior to surgery. Now all of his issues are being classified as "chronic kidney disease". He started going into renal failure the same exact day that his (pseudomonas) surgical site began to open back up and actively drain. Just curious to know if he could potentially be having some sort of adverse reaction to the Zeniquin or if this could even play of role in his drastic decline of his kidney function. The surgeon doesn't seem too concerned with his infection, and this too is a very unsettling feeling!

doubt Zenequin (Marbofloxacin) has anything to do with the CRF, though a serious kidney infection (eg. from Pseudomonas) could easily do it, as well as an intolerance of Deramaxx (can be VERY hard on kidneys in select dogs). Normally Marbofloxacin is given for a maximum of 2-4 weeks, but if you have a bacteria that is sensitive to it, I would definitely continue it as long as needed (though still 2-4 weeks is usually long enough).

Thanks for the advice. This is exactly what the internal medicine Doctor suggested as well. He's actually home now after 6 days of inpatient treatment and seems to be improving.

We are hopeful that he will continue down this path and are very impressed with the treatment the doctors have given him over the past week. Our journey continues :-)
