A mixed bag

20141111_120423_sh21The 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.

    I’m sure Bezukhov will have been pleased to have at least some of his medications off the menu!
