View Full Version : Robbie vet report

24th August 2007, 11:42 PM
His lab work was better..still slightly elevated but much better than at the ER..However he still had the calcifications which could be gall stones..and in fact he may have had a gall stone attack or he may have had a gall stone start the pancreatitis attack..plus he has a small liver which luckily has not seemed to cause a problem yet while under anesthetic but will have to be watched now that we know about it....ugggghhhhhh..let's add one more thing into the mix. ..anyway we start adding in some kibble to his diet and he has been released back to normal activity..

We could do more testing on the liver but would have to travel to the vet school to do it and my vet didn't recommend it unless I really wanted to know or unless he had more trouble...There is one vet in town that has an ultrasound machine but they aren't really experts at it according to my vet, not bad at it but if wanted something really definitive we would probably go to the vet school

So right now we take precautions for pancreatitis and keep an eye on him.

Thanks for all the good thoughts.

Oh poor little Robbie, pancreatitis is really painful. I hope he gets better fast.

Hope everything turns out ok, nothing worse than having a poorly dog.

Thanks for the update and info. I'm so sorry he is having these complications but so glad you seem to have the most urgent aspects under control now. :flwr:
