Anna-I am not fam of this type of test to diagnose a liver shunt. Only protocol I heard of with my Kirby was a BAT, protein C, then if needed next was a SCINIGRAFY.
hope this tells them what's going on. Poor Becky.

Hello my friends,

we just got back from internal medicine , they were very nice she had looked over everything and she hd a thought maybe Becky has addisons disease it could sometimes mimic liver disease and throw off bile acids ????? so we did blood work for this and we are waiting for results if that comes back negative her ct scan is booked for Tuesday morning to investigate the liver ...... finally she did not ignore the fact she might have a liver issue and put her on lactulose and metrodizanole she said we should see improvement next 5 days ...... she will call me in 48 hours to check up on her , what do you guys think?? keep praying please i prefer addisons over liver shunt

I agree with Tori. I think this vet will be able to help little Becky. I'll continue praying it isn't a shunt.

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...

Anna - I don't know enough about liver disease or Addison's but I hope it's the lesser of the two.

Hi Kandis,

We're checking in to see how Becky and Mommy doing? Please post update when you can.

Loves and hugs to you both! and continuing to pray for Becky to pull through and for you to find ways to help with the financial situation.
