My 10 year old Riley has been slowly going down health wise in the past few months. Back in early September I took him to the vet to have a dental done and during routine blood work they found that his liver enzymes were high. I should note that this wasn't our regular vet....they suggested further blood work and ultra sound which found that 1. he had a low thyroid level and 2. his liver had an abnormal texture. My next step at that point was to get him into our regular vet. She put him on an antibiotic and a liver med to help the liver, we repeated bloodwork 2 weeks later but enzymes were still high. We then did a urinalysis to check for Cushings and his number was at 40....dogs that don't have Cushings are less than 34, dogs greater than could have but vet also stated that dogs with Cushings usually numbers are in the hundreds. We (vet and myself) decided it would be better to wait until his thyroid levels were normal and then do an ultrasound on his liver as we could also check his adrenal glands as well. That was approximately 3 weeks ago and I'm waiting on a call from my vet tomorrow (not in on Mondays) as he's gone down so much recently...he's lost so much muscle in his back end he can't jump on the couch, car or the bed and is leery about the stairs outside. I'm hoping we can get him in this week for an ultrasound and probably more bloodwork but I'd also like to put him on a good cooked diet for dogs with liver disease...does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone had these issues that could offer some guidance? Riley is a very sweet oversized Sheltie whom I took in when a friend passed away and it's hard to see him like this.. His decline has been so great that I'm starting to think about his passing, he really is failing ( although he still has a great appetite) and I certainly don't want to see him suffering.
