Cat: Elevated enzyme levels

My cat's blood work discovered elevated levels of enzymes. The vet recommended a medication (daily) on empty stomach that costs $ 35.50 per month. Is there any cheaper med available, and where ?

It is not possible to answer your question without additional information.  High levels of enzymes are a symptom, not a disease, so without knowing which enzymes (creatinine, nitrogen, phosphorus, etc.) were elevated, the cause of the elevated enzymes can not be identified.  Most elevated enzyme levels in the blood indicate either a liver or kidney problem, but could stem from other reasons.  What medication is your cat on?  What did you vet tell  he diagnosed based on the elevated enzyme levels?

Thank you so much for your answer. My vet only told me that Smoky had elevated enzyme levels and wantedto describe a medication which I can't afford. She said that I could think it over as it wouldn't be urgent to start with the meds. Smoky is since years at 5mg of Tapazole per day for her Thyroid problem which is - after last CBC - under control.
Shall I call the vet and ask for more info ? I read dozens of articles on the net and am now really freightened. My kitty is all I have in the world and of course I want to do everything to help her. Thanks you for your advice and God bless you !

Yes of course  Ask you vet what he thinks the cause of the elevated enzyme levels are and what the medication is.
