Notes:  Dog is free of any abdominal pain, totally active and robust. Radiographs show liver within normal parameters. Serum is still icteric but awaiting full blood results.


Day 64

Notes:  Dog continues to act robust and healthy, high energy, great appetite. ALP and bili continue to improve, ALT went up a bit again, BUN/cholesterol and albumin still low and dog has lost a bit more weight.
