    Maybe, the last time it was checked it was okay, but that was a while ago. I forgot to have them test it the last time he had the blood work done. I'll try to have it done tomorrow after work.

    Well, I don't think this is what is going on, it's only slightly lower than it should be:

    I took him to the vet last Friday, His neck just seemed to be so much thicker, so I wanted them to check that lump. Did a needle aspiration that came back fine. Had them do a urinalysis, which came back fine. As long as I was spending money, we did more blood work. The only things in the blood work were ALK at 523, ref range was 5 - 131 and Triglycerides at 982, ref range 29 - 291. He had breakfast that morning before I decided to take him. The Precision PSL was 150, ref range 24 - 140. but he's eating fine and isn't showing any signs of stomachaches. Vet said he's overweight, he's at 74.7 right now, but he's been much bigger than this.

    He's still drinking a lot, but I just bought him an orthopedic bed with a cooling feature and he loves it. He gets anxious when I'm getting ready for work, lays on the bathroom floor while I'm showering, very clingy. I think he just feels better when I'm home knowing that he doesn't have to hold in his pee. Some nights he goes about 4 - 5 hours without needing to go out, then others it could be every 2 - 3 hours. But he's still playing with Cooper and lately he's been bringing toys to me to play tug-of-war...so I don't know.

    All in all good news for $565....

    I agree, especially the part about playing with Cooper and you :-))))))

    Thanks for the update, Joan, and give Gable a big pat for me, OK?
