Kidney Failure in Dogs

We have a mix-breed dog (oreo) that was diagnosed with kidney failure about 2 1/2 months ago. At first the only thing we noticed was she sometimes would not get outside before she had to pee. Then, while we were at WDW at the kennel she started not wanting to eat. Now, the symptoms have progressed to the point that we she often doesn't make it outside in time, and we are actually diapering her at night and during the day when we are at work. That we can deal with. The real hard part is that now she is hardly eating anything.

My husband has bought all sorts of special food and she will eat it once or twice and then refuse it. Then on the vets recommendation, we tried cooking up chicken and adding rice. That worked for about a week. Then we tried beef, etc, etc. It seems like she'll eat something new maybe once or twice and then refuses it too. He has even given her raw hamburger (did a lot or research on the 'net and found that some have had success with this).

He is so frustrated and doesn't know what to do next. Does anyone have any ideas for us? If you have had a dog go thru this, is there any advice as to how much longer she might have? We know the day is going to come where we need to let her go, but when she does eat she is very spunky and looks like she has lots of life left!

All advice accepted
