I talked to Dr. Bailey today -- and it IS just plain weird.

The AST (one of the liver values) is down almost to normal. The ALT is still pretty high.

The BUN is high (but that may be due to the high protein content of her food) which is what made the BUN/Creatinine high (so that's likely no biggie).

The wbc and inflammation is probably skin -- but it's still mysterious, but doesn't check out as 'infection' but mostly as 'inflammation' probably from the demodex.

urinalysis showed some oxalate crystals. Not a lot but a few -- that means I have to adjust the diet -- lower acid (because they thrive in a more acidic environment)

I think one of the things I"m going to try is lowering the protein -- everyone has tried to convince me to go the high protein route and I did so reluctantly. Both Billy and Tink have high liver values and I have to wonder if that's because of the excess protein.

She's also SUCH a horrible poop eater -- I mean THE worst I've ever known. And I'm sure the higher protein content in the food is making that worse.

It's the only thing I *can* try that's logical right now. so we'll see.
