So...I went to the vet today. I was very nervous and I had to be muzzled to get blood work done, hehe. I was freaking out and mom was trying to keep me calm, but it wasn't working. So they took me, very unwillingly, to the back and got the blood. I only weigh 36 lbs right now. Last year at my physical in October I weighed 46 lbs. So the weight loss is an issue for sure. The vet is doing a regular CBC and also liver test and KBR test. She thinks maybe my not eating is from liver disease or it could just be that I am extra picky, BOL. We won't know for sure, but she told mom to keep feeding me kibbles and bits if it's what I want to eat because I need to get some weight on my body. Now the good news is... I am not BLIND!!! She thinks the spatial awareness, anxiety, sleeping problems and all that stuff is from the seizures and that I will make a complete recovery. WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Mom is so happy, she started to cry. She really thought it was gonna be bad news. The vet says that we will add phenobarb back to my meds if I don't have liver damage or we might increase the KBr if the levels are low enough. We will know more tomorrow as the tests come in. I will post the results in my diary.
