Heather's Health Update

Today, I got a call from the vet. Turns out, little Miss Heather's blood work came back. One liver value (named ALT, which can be indicative for liver disease) is now a completely normal 33 - last time was nearly 1,000. The other (named ALP, which tends to go up with gall bladder disease) is still up around 900, the normal value being about 150.

And so, the plan to help Miss Heather stay healthy is to keep her on antibiotics for another two weeks and bring her back to the vet for a recheck at that time. They'll do another ultrasound to check out the gall bladder and, of course, make sure those blood values continue to normalize. This little girl may not be entirely out of the woods yet but there is definitely some happy healing going on in that body!


  1. WooHoooo!!!! Great news ScottieMom! Relieved and happy for you. Give that sweet little head an extra kiss tonight. And don't forget to pet your vet!

  2. AaaRoo, Miss Heather. Praying the antibiotics will take care of the ALP levels. Keep up the good fight.
