Thank you all for your comments, they made me feel really good. Dumpster's surgery was postponed. The vet ran some blood work and found his liver enzemes were up. I wrote two of them down. ALKP was 1033 and his ALT was 884. They put him on some medication and I go back and have it rechecked in a month. So now we wait again.

Oh, that's too bad. Hopefully the liver counts will stabilize and the surgery can happen soon. :smile:

I'm sorry :( Good luck with his counts, and the meds. I'm sure the waiting is horrible, all on its own.

I'm sure you're anxious waiting, but at least you have a vet that is knowledgeable and has Dumpster's best interests in mind. :)

That stinks! I'm so sorry! You may want to talk to a holistic vet and see what supplements can help the liver. I think it is milk thistle so that may be something to look into
