A mixed bag

The last blood sample that Bezukhov provided to the vet was fortunately sufficient enough to run the relevant tests.
Unfortunately, the results turned out to be a ‘mixed bag’. The good news is that compared to the previous blood results, his liver appears to be in a much improved state. However, Ms Exotic Hospital Vet (EHV) was concerned about the readings for his gallbladder & bile. It is possible that having a repeat blood test within 7 days could have affected the results, i.e., his protein levels may be lower than normal, so this has to be considered.
Ms EHV recommended ceasing all medication (Ronaxan, Lactulose & nebulising with F10) but continuing with the Aloe Vera & Milk Thistle supplements in his water. He is to be watched closely for any signs of illness, odd behaviour or seizures. We plan to repeat the blood tests in about 6 weeks time.
