Liver Not-News

The vet called with the results of the blood work from last week. And the news was really not-news. We got nothing.  My thyroid is fine. My cholesterol and triglycerides are a little high, but not high enough to do anything to my liver.

Yes, it's wonderful that everything is o.k.  The problem, however, is that we still don't know why my liver is being wonky.

The vet is out of ideas, too.  So, our options are:
  1. Have my vet do a very-expensive, very-invasive liver biopsy. (Mom says it's not an option.)
  2. Go to the local university animal hospital for another opinion. (They're very expensive.)
  3. Have the vet research and find a specialist to go to in a big city.  (Expensive, plus lots of travel.)

Mom's got some stuff to think about now.  

On a completely unrelated note, please enjoy this photo of me, drenched from poopin' in the rain, attacking a massive caterpillar...



  1. Oh Buttons, that's a lot to think about. I don't have any advice, but I do have lots of purrs and hugs for you. I know your mom will make the best decisions for you. And you guys have lots of shoulders to cry on or just bounce ideas off of if you need them. Everyone loves you!

  2. Our friend needs to watch our friend Annie's liver count cause of her meds. Her doctor told her to feed Annie a low protein low fat diet. Her liver is good so far. She eats Nutro for seniors in the silver bag
