I finally was able to discuss the blood work results for Lucas and Annie who went to the vet last week. The news for Annie is not the best. If there was any good news, it was that her kidney values are unchanged from last month. The bad news, is that her liver values continue to change. We've put her on a liver supplement called denamarin which raises antioxidant levels and has silybin to help improve liver function. Paws crossed that it works for her. All this is a reminder that when our pups are taking non-steroidal-anti- inflammatory medication like Annie was for an extended period, that regular blood work should be done to to make sure they are not damaging their kidneys and liver. Unfortunately her previous owner didn't do this, and sadly this is the result.
The news for Lucas was mixed. He has a high white blood cell count but where the infection is, is unclear. He's on antibiotics for 2 weeks in hopes that will take care of it. Lucas has been made available for adoption through the rescue I volunteer with, but so far, not a single call about him. Even with the articles that have been written about him, no one has expressed an interest. I know it's probably due to the limitations of his adoption. Lucas as you may recall was a stray so he cannot be placed with young children because we don't know his history around them
Then there is Lucas's never ending fascination and obsession with the cat. He and CC still have their moments when she's had enough, but they don't occur as often as they did at first and she allows Lucas to closely admire her, which he does every chance he gets.
