Blood Test Results. Liver problems/kidney troubles
So Joy, my 11-ish yearold cocker spaniel stopped drinking about days ago. Se has been drinking now for over 10 days now, no vomiting, just sluggish, sleepy, hides under the table, unmotivated.
Being in a foreign country with a language in veterinary lingo that I dont fully understand is difficult at times....
Here are the highs... The rest are all in normal range
Neut Segmentati 17236.8
Protein C Reatt. 0.7
Rapp (ratio?) Na/K 24.19
Rapp (ratio?) Alb/Glob0.56
She is going for an xray today of her kidneys and liver.....
White cells are very elevated, which indicates an infection and can cause the other quirks in the blood work. They don't seem that far out of line. Is your dog on antibiotics? If he is still not drinking he may need IV or Sub-q fluids to prevent dehydration. What did the exrays show?
