    Took Gable in yesterday for a PVT and blood chem.

    3.0 on the cortisol test ref range 1.0 - 5.0

    ALK: 616 ref range 29 - 291
    Triglycerides: 959 ref range 29 - 291 (he hadn't eaten before we went)
    Precision PSL: 273 ref range 24 - 140

    He's got an ear infection in both ears, they cleaned them out and put some stuff in that lasts two weeks. He's on Apaquel for his allergies and except for the panting, he's doing good. It is so hot and muggy here that I won't let him stay out longer than to do what he needs to do.

    What do you think?

    ...he's doing good.
    You know Joan, at this stage with Gabie, I think thatís the most important part of your whole report. Was that a pre-pill cortisol reading? If so, then I especially think thatís just fine. And we know Cushpups have elevated ALK and triglycerides. If he was acting ill, Iíd be more concerned about the Precision PSL. But all in all, if heís generally good, then I believe Iíd take that as a blessing and let him relax ;-). (And you, too!)

    Thanks, Marianne! He's had some soft poop days, but I think it's because we're home all the time and he's getting a lot more table food that he probably shouldn't. The limping has stopped and he's laying around a lot more, but I think that's just the heat.

    And yes, it was a pre-pill test.

    My concern is that the test was performed while he had ear infections which could raise his cortisol levels so that result of 3 could possibly be higher than what it actually is.

    I didn't think of that, Lori....I guess if I can afford it, I'll do another test in a couple of weeks.
