Mijo has primary liver disease
For those of you following the thread about my little Mijo, it is now official. Mijo has liver disease, the bile acids tests that came back today prove this. He will be going to see a specialist who can tell us more about his disease and what the next steps are.
I would like to thank all of you for your kind words of support, for your suggestions, and for the wealth of information I have found on this forum not only for this problem but for all of my havanese questions! It is comforting to know that I am not alone in this and that others have also gone through what I am going through.
I am so glad that I got the bile acids test done despite the fact that my vet thought it was unnecessary. I knew there was something else going on with my angel and I just hope that we can help him to recover. I did not ask my vet many questions today when he shared the news on the phone for two reasons: I was at work, and I was very upset by the news! I wanted to yell a big I TOLD YOU SO at him after he kidded me about researching on the internet too much when I made the bile acids appointment. GRRRR! I am not sure if it is a shunt, I am not sure if it is something else that has to do with the liver. When we go see the specialist I will find out more. All I know right now is that I am devastated, I don't want my little boy to suffer, and I hope that whatever he has can be treated, operated, or better yet, reversed completely.
Well, that's all I have for now. Thank you again everyone for your support. If it wasn't for "the internet researching" we would not have tested the little guy.
With endless gratitude,
Connie and Mijo
