Dixie and Burt came back from their trip to the vet today with shaved bellies! I don't know why we were surprised--it stands to reason when you think of how they do ultrasounds on humans. Stripped down, bare skin, gooey gel between the skin and the scan-head. So, the fur had to go.

The techs and Doc saw no signs of shrunken adrenal glands, no obvious tumors, no malformations of the liver. Burt's liver did look a little large to the technicians, but as Doc put it, that could be because he's just chunky. We will have a specialist "read" the ultrasounds, just in case something was missed. It's looking more and more like D&B may have ingested something that damaged the liver. So far, great news (in a twisted sort of way).

How's that great news, you might ask? The liver is a most wonderful organ. Given time and supplements, it can heal and be almost back to normal within four to six months.

That's our hope. Paws crossed.

This is good news! Glad they found nothing on the ultrasounds! I ingested bad food & went into liver failure in 2009 & within 5 months my liver was back to normal! Keeping you both in my prayers & hoping for a quick recovery!
