Default ***Anxiously awaiting Lab results!😳***

Hi! Leo had has annual check up and lab work up yesterday and Mimi had her ALT liver enzyme recheck so today we are expecting to hear back from the vet.

I'm really nervous since mimi has had an elevated ALT since before she was a year old when we did her presurgical lab work for her spay. Granted it finally started trending down the last check up, it was still high. We started her on a new supplement called liquid hepato which was recommended by a friend going through the same thing with her 2lb chi.

Leo got his 3 year rabies too, we skipped it last year. He did great yesterday and walking and shopping with us but this morning he's not doing well. He keeps screaming in pain when we touch him or try to pick him up. I even tried petting him on the ground and he was screaming. I feel so bad for him, poor little guy! I will definitely let the vet know as soon as she calls me.

Keep us in your thoughts please!

Patiently waiting to see my doctor!

I hope you get some great news. That pic of Leo under the bench is too funny😊. The pups look great and looks like they had a fun time.

Thanks Meoshia! I hope they call me soon, I'm starting to get nauseous thinking about it.
It was a nice day but just a little too hot!

Fingers crossed for good news sweetie! I am so bad with waiting, it just makes me so anxious. I am sure Meemers results will be good if they were already declining xxx

So we got our results and they were not good unfortunately. Last time her alt was 280 and now they are back up to 325. initially I was sick to my stomach, felt like a slap in the face bc we give her supplements, 5 star kibble, freeze dried raw, coconut oil,, the works!
My vet diagnosed her with micro vascular dysplasia. I already called my breeder to let her know. Amazingly enough, we found out mimi's sister Alice has it too! Jen (breeder) doesn't seem convinced and asked me to send all my labs/tests to her vet which is fine.
I am so lucky to have my friend Leslie in my life, who has a Maltese with MVD too who has normal alt now and she's going to help us manage it.

We decided to switch mimi's food so hopefully she likes it! I tried THK years ago but Lola wouldn't touch it.
Here she is showing off her new food:




Anyone try THK?? Opinions? I would love to hear experiences! !
Leslie said we need to lower the protein and get her on a "cleaner" food than kibble. Wish us luck!!

So sorry to hear the results are still high, hon. I was so hoping they would have come down some more. What has helped Roo (the only thing that has helped) is a low protein diet which she was on for about 6 months and every blood test has been completely normal during that time. A feat considering her ALT was as high as 645 and is now 56.

Raw is completely out for Roo, whenever she eats it her ALT skyrockets. It's a great diet for healthy dogs, but it's not always the right diet for dogs with health and liver issues even though I know some people don't agree. I can only go by what I see work and not work for Roo in her particular case. I've currently switched her over to a homemade diet (switching between whitefish and turkey generally with potatoes and various other things) and I'm trying that for a month to see how it goes.

I really hope the new diet goes well for Mimi. I tried Roo on THK recently but she didn't like it, unfortunately. She's a fairly fussy eater though. I hope you have better luck with Mimi liking it. Best of luck with everything. xx
