Puff the wonderful

My beautiful little boy is sick

As you know, Puff has been having loose, dark stools and has been treated for this situation by our vet. Today I took him back for further evaluation because the problem has not gone away, plus he yelped out when I rubbed his tummy in the lower region this morning. The vet technician took Puff to the back room and did another blood panel on him. As we were waiting for the results, a young women with a small child came in with a Husky that was having seizures. Because of this emergency the vet was unable to discuss the results of Puff's blood work with me. The vet technician did say that Puff's liver panel was elevated and that Puff needs to be on Science Diet L/P, take Baytril antibiotics and another dose of Metronidazole plus 1/2 of a anti-diarrhea pill daily. I was told that the vet would call "later today" to discuss the results of Puffs blood work with me and discuss options. It is now almost 9:00pm and no call from the vet. If any of our pup pals have or had a dog with liver problems would you please share your expierences with me? I want to be well informed so that I can make good choices regarding his care.

Thank you,

I'm sorry to hear Puff is still having trouble. I will have my mom ask around to see if anyone she knows has had this problem with their dog. I hope the vet calls you soon, too.
