sick dog, but doesn't seem sick?
So I'll start with the disclaimer that yes, we have a vet appointment booked. I'm asking so as to (hopefully) settle my anxiety over this issue.
My dog is my baby and is currently curled up on my bed while I sit at my desk. She always does sleep on my bed, it's her place and has been since she was tiny.
Over the past couple of weeks I've been getting increasingly worried about her.
She just turned 7 and is (we think) a ridgeback mix.
Her symptoms are as follows:
REALLY stinky burps (her breath is fine though)
Reflux or something? She'll occasionally have a tiny upchuck with no warning at all, usually just bile but it STINKS.
Sometimes, as in very very occasionally, she'll have an accident inside (only ever wee and never much)
Other than the above she is COMPLETELY NORMAL, bright and cheerful, playful, greets me loudly every time I walk through a door to where she is (normal, for her). Playfights with the greyhound. Her gums are nice and pink, the whites of her eyes are nice and white, she's eating normally and pooping normally. Her weight hasn't changed in a long time - she's at a healthy weight so it doesn't need to.
Between 4 and 6 years ago she had a few relatively minor seizures and saw the vet, but was never put on medication for them because they were so mild and infrequent. This seems unrelated and she hasn't had a seizure in over 4 years.
We have chickens but I don't think this issue has anything to do with them because they're in the backyard and the dogs only have access to the side yard because the greyhound (not the sick one) can't be trusted around them.
I don't think it's food related; she's not on premium food because I can't afford it but her kibble is good quality and we've used it for the better part of 15 years without issue. Additionally, there's been no dietary change. She has been on the same kibble (though sometimes we'll change flavour this hasn't happened recently) since she came off puppy food.
I'm terrified it's kidney problems but wouldn't she seem sicker? Vet appointment is tomorrow so I guess it's out of my hands for now but I can't help worrying about her, she's my child (and the only child I'm ever likely to have, I hate human babies).
