Need Advice Please

I would like some advice please

 

We got Rowdy test results back.

Something is not right with his liver but the vet said she was pretty sure it wasn't cancer.

 

She said we could to to Quebec City and get a biospy done, or that we could do X-Ray and then take the toe off. Its the middle one.

 

I don't know what to do.

i would follow up with the biopsy (and hopefully ultrasound?) so that you have a diagnosis before Rowdy undergoes anesthesia. X-ray is not going to tell you much unless there is a giant tumor or huge liver.

Do you know what liver value was elevated on his bloodwork?? If the values are pretty wonky do not proceed with any anesthesia just yet. Depending on the blood values there are different diagnostics that can be run. Radiographs, abdominal ultrasound, bile acids test, biopsy....... Did your vet suggest to start Denamarin in the interim??

i would personally go w/the xray when he has his toe amputated. he is such a character he will recover from the surgery very very quickly and be knocking on your neighbor's door looking for updates in the neighborhood in no time what so ever. rowdy is young at heart, young at spirit but his body knows his true age. as long as he is pain free and can resume his standard neighborhood patrol, that's what i would be looking to maintain. and if they find something malignent in his liver, what's one to do?

xxoo to dear rowdy and you-(tatum and miles as well)

Totally agree with tbhounds. We lost a grey with somewhat wonky liver values when the vet didn't see much on ultrasound and proceeded to do a biopsy. He got too many drugs that day. Turned out there was no cancer anyhow. So, yes, move conservatively, and just deal with the toe for now.
