Any experience with high liver counts?
I thought I would post this in a new thread because my previous one was about getting spayed.
Well, I took Junie to the vet this morning and dropped her off to be spayed. They called an hour later and told me her pre-surgery blood screening showed liver levels almost 3 times normal. They want to put her on a mild antibiotic and test again in 3 weeks. If the readings are still high, they would do more extensive testing. If not, they will spay her. She did not seem overly concerned and acted almost like this could be somewhat typical...but Im beside myself! My husband and I recently realized we have both been giving her a few chicken jerky treats each day (too much!) and Im hoping that was the cause. Maybe too much protein. Anyway, I was worried about the surgery and now it might end even worse. Any experience with something similar?
