I followed Maggie outside one morning and as she started to pee, stuck a plastic container under her and did indeed collect some of her pee. She had no idea what I was doing, but didn't seem bothered by it.
After dropping the pee off at the vets I treated her to a few hours at the dog park and waited for the results.
Got the call a day later to learn that her kidney function was normal and although she tested positive for Lyme disease she doesn't actually have the disease. Makes sense huh!?! Anyway, it is good news to us. The vet encouraged us to keep a close watch over her in the event that any symptoms would show up, but for the time being she is acting like the normal Maggie.
This week with the snow melting and some grass appearing Maggie has been enjoying her walks. I wonder if she forgot what grass was since it has been so long since she has smelled it.
With the temperatures set to rise to the fifties next week, we are looking forward to the emergence of spring and more outside time.
