|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

|Subject: Liver issues. Sat Dec 28, 2013 7:26 pm|| |
So starting last Thursday night Keno started puking up his food. We fasted a day and then tried bland diet and different food. Nothing helped. He is acting perfectly normal, well Keno normal lol We got him into our vet yesterday. Did xrays, nothing. No blockage, or masses. No enlarged esophagus. We did blood work and a fecal. All basic blood work came back yesterday and it was all normal. Fecal was normal. I get call this afternoon from our vet asking us to come to discuss the rest of the blood panel.
Keno's liver levels are elevated. A lot. They are suppose to be about 60...his are 3804. The other is suppose to be 125, his are 2500. This is not something anyone expected. He has no other symptoms, aside from vomiting. It took 3 people yesterday to do his xray, he is his happy go lucky bouncy self.
We have no idea why the levels are so high. We have search the house/yard high and low and found nothing. Right now we are waiting for vet to to consult with the 2 closest universities-Iowa State and Missouri to see what to do next. He would have to go to either of them for a biopsy and/or ultrasound with aspirate. Which usually wouldn't be an issue, but i have been without work for 2 months and its the holidays and just not good timing. Granted I'll do whatever I can to get him better, he is my baby. If we have to wait for some money to take him, the vet suggested a flush of his system and getting started on a liver protector.
I have already had 3 breakdowns in the last 3 hours. He is only just getting ready to turn 5 and he isn't acting sick and are finances aren't were they should be.
Has anyone dealt with any liver issues? and if so, had good results? I know the liver is a fairly forgiving organ and we believe we caught it early. So just some well wishes and good thoughts please and thank you!
