Good blood, bad blood, and best blood ever.
Gustavo had blood work this week, that's how we monitor his hepatic microvascular dysplasia. That and if he has seizures or acts crazy or drools and shambles around the house. His levels of this and that have done nothing but gotten better since he's been on meds and strict adherence to his special diet for the past 2+ years and this time his blood was the BEST EVER!
Can he go back to eating beloved MEAT? Hell no. Because his brain will explode of ammonia then he'll die of bad liver. But blood tests don't lie, and these ones show that his body is functioning just like a dog that has a normal liver, pretty much, essentially. He is as healthy as he's ever been right now, about as healthy as we can ever hope him to be. His brain might have permanent damage from the years before I knew he had this, but nothing NEW is being damaged anymore.
He is a healthy dog!
This news makes all of us here in team small dog land very, very happy.
