Elevated liver enzymes can mean Hepatic lipidosis (liver failure). If he is eating less than normal he can go into liver failure. If it is that, he is critical. I would ask her for a copy of the blood work and ask her how elevated they are and consider getting him to another vet/specialist (and/or get the numbers and provide them to the Feline Assisted feeding group). You might join the FAF yahoo group. Also, I do not know what elevated white blood cells mean other than an infection. Maybe liver enzymes elevate during infectious process ~ I don't know the answer. Sounds like you might benefit from doing some internet research?? I had elevated liver enzymes and they discovered tumors on my liver.
Good luck!

I figured out who was doing it on Saturday and got him in to the vet on Monday. They tested his urine and blood and the vet called me today with the results. She said his liver enzymes are elevated and his white cell levels are high. She is going to put him on an antibiotic and re-do the tests in two weeks. (When I asked the name of the anti-biotic she side stepped the question and just said is is a pill wrapped in foil. I am currently looking for another vet because there is only one vet in this practice that I fully trust and it is very hard to get to see him.) Anyway, can anyone tell me what would make his liver enzymes elevated? The advise I have gotten on this list has proved to be better then the advise from this particular vet in the past, so I would very much appreciate any input. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
