Hello!!
how are you!

We have Good news.

Happy is doing it very well with 2 creon before food. 3 times per day.

We have a very perfects poops. So we are incredible happy for that.
The blood analysis is better every week.

The liver still with high enzimes ( very very hight)We will repeat the ultrasound scan. But the vets thinks thats posible because one of the vets we visited before ( we visited 8 vets, and no one knew what was happening her) gaves Happy corticoesteroids.
Do you know anything about the corticoesteroids effects on the liver?

Thank you all!

Love, Happy and Maria

Hello, Maria! So glad to hear that Happy is doing so well. That is wonderful news. You must be as happy as she is.

Yes, the steroids can elevate the liver enzymes.....I'm sure they will be keeping an eye on them. It sounds like this vet is a keeper.

Hi Maria,
So sorry to hear Happy has bad poops. The tummy rumbling and bad poops sound like SID to me. Can you call your vet and see if he can get Tylan for you?

I don't recognize the B12 you are giving. Is it shots or an oral pill?

Hello Jill
Thanks for your fast answer,

I spoke to the vet this morning, In spain its difficult to get tylan. Looks like the vets doesnt use it in dogs ( in chicken, pigs and cows yes)

My vet is looking for tylan... but, we are going to start with another antibiotic. ( in spain is: SEPTRIM pediatric - trimetoprima/sulfametoxazol) Hope it will works.
The b12 are oral pills. She was doing well with this ones, the last time, the b12 was very hight (1200)

Thank you Maria for the information. The tylan we use here is for birds, pigs etc... too so tell your vet that is the right one. The granule powder. I am sending you information in a link for you and your vet.

This link describes the tylan and shows a picture of what you need in a bottle. Please know if you can find it most folks put the 2 times a day dose in empty gel capsules as it is very bitter.

I agree it sounds like SID/SIBO rearing its head. Hopefully the antibiotic will help. If you do use tylan, make sure you don't touch your eyes while you are handling it......it will sting.... just wash your hands after touching it.
