we're still waiting for the internist to get back to my vet but his latest blood tests were this:
alt=204, down from 413, shouldn't be more than 118
ast=22, down from 73, shouldn't be more than 66
alk =945, up from837, shouldn't be more than131 but he is on pred which raises it
total bilirubin=0.2. down from 0.4, shouldn't be more than 0.3
so, we think we're pleased but the internist will be clearer than the numbers.
meanwhile, he reduced his pred to .5 every other day, instead of every day.
fingers and paws crossed.
Wow those numbers are crazy! That poor boy has been through a lot physically. Continued good thoughts for Rex, let us know what the final word is from the internist. Stay strong!
Awesome that most of the numbers are going down. Continued prayers and healing thoughts for Rex. Get well sweetie!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
I'm glad the numbers are down. Continued good thoughts for Rex. Let us know what the internest says.
Sounds much better. Hoping all will be good soon.
Oh Bette! I am so thankful that you have some encouraging news! I continue to hold you in my thoughts and I hope Rex continues to improve!
