Subject: Re: Mikayla - kidney problems?
Thanks for your reply - yes, the vet prescribed fluids two times a
day which I am able to administer myself. Another question, though -
I'm at work all day long, and I have nobody to help me in the morning
to give fluids, so my only option is to give fluids at 6:00 p.m. and
then again at bedtime, which is always past midnight - sometimes
closer to 2 am - is this OK? I figure it's better than nothing,
though I wish I could do it more closely to every twelve hours.
Thanks for the reply!
