I took Maggie in for her annual titers, rabies shot, etc. She also had to have some lab tests repeated as, prior to her surgery, her liver enzymes were out of whack. Well, the vet called tonight and the liver-related tests are even more abnormal, particularly the alkaline phosphatase which has sky-rocketed. So ... I will be scheduling Maggie for an ultrasound at the veterinary hospital here in Tampa. Fortunately (or unfortunately, I guess), we have an already established relationship with an excellent internist there because of past problems. My vet is concerned that Maggie might be headed for trouble and wants to get a diagnosis so we can start whatever treatments might be needed. Very disappointing news -- I thought Maggie was doing so well since her surgery. When she got weighed at the vet, she had lost 3 lbs. since October and I was thrilled. Now we are thinking weight loss might be related to other things. Will let you all know how this goes. Meanwhile, Maggie is feeling chipper and I will focus on that!
