Things have gone from bad to worse. The Vet called with the results of his pre-surgery blood workup. Everything looked great except his ALT was through the roof. Over 300! So Skye's neuter surgery is on hold while we try to trace down the cause of his liver malfunction.
We go in Monday for another blood draw and liver enzyme test to make sure this wasn't an anomaly or error. Assuming he still shows elevated ALT will move on to ultrasound to see if that will reveal any injury, abnormality, or shunts on the liver.
I really don't know what to think. Skye is acting healthy and energetic, no diarrhea, vomiting, blood in urine or stool. No obvious signs of pain. He is such a picky eater, I can't tell for sure but I would say no change in appetite.
Just very surprised and dismayed to get this news.
