Update: Health Issues

I apologize if I haven’t been able to post in my blog for awhile now. December was a busy month because of all the Christmas shopping and family get togethers. I had a nice time just chilling and spending time with my family.

If you have been following me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that I was having problems with my elevated liver levels last year. I did 2 tests on September and my 2nd test showed that my levels were going down so we were confident that I will be back to normal soon. We did a blood test this month and were so surprised to see that my ALT levels were way above normal. I was scared and worried so we scheduled an ultrasound to further figure out what is wrong with me.

I got my ultrasound results the next day and the good news is that they didn’t find any tumors or cysts in my body! Yipee! Another good news is that I do not have a liver shunt. The bad news is that the vet thinks I have Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It's bad but not as bad as having tumors.

I changed my diet to chicken and veggies. I have organic sweet potatoes, white potatoes, zucchini, carrots, green beans, etc. I also get a drop of colloidal silver in my water and food based on recommendations from a holistic pet group.

I haven’t gone to any pet meetups lately because our main concern is my overall health. Physically I act like a normal, healthy, happy pup. I run around, I chill and relax when I get tired, I have a very healthy appetite and I am playful towards Daisy (my bestfriend). If not for the blood test results, you would think there is nothing wrong with me.  

My human has gone through a lot with me in regards to my health conditions and we figured out the best thing to go by this is to do it the natural and holistic way. Please comment below if you have any suggestions and information regarding Inflammatory Bowel Disease. We have gotten so many comments and suggestions from my social media accounts (Facebook and Instagram) and we are very thankful for the great response from everyone.
