The vet visit on Monday was a success. Ike’s blood work came back normal. His GGT (a liver value) is slightly elevated at 8 vs. falling in the range of 1 – 7, but that is it. I will talk to Dr. F about it today. Dr. M wasn’t concerned given he has recently been on antibiotics and that could impact it.
I spoke to the vet about the unpleasantness requesting blood work and she said in the future to just ask one of the vets to call me back.
By the time his Monday vet visit rolled around Bug was no longer limping!! Dr. M went over him very thoroughly and said that perhaps he had a knot in his triceps brachii muscle. She could not detect any sensitivity, his range of motion was excellent, etc. I told Dr. M that when Cheryl adjusted him I did see the muscles in his triceps visibly release – so perhaps that is what it was. Who knows. Dr. M did give me 5 Deramaxx to have on hand in case something happens over the weekend in the future.
I almost forgot some additional good news…..Bug now weighs 31.7 pounds!! As soon as the move is complete and we are settled it is safe to start playing again!
