Since my original post Orlando has finished a course of Clavamox.  In July his 
liver enzyme was 64.  In Feb. before the antibiotic it was 191, and last 
Saturday it was 224.  Not extremely high, but still odd that it is going up.  
He is eating normally and acting completely normal.  The vet told me to start 
giving him vitaman E and Milk Thistle and we will test him again in 6 months. 
Meanwhile I will just watch him carefull to make sure his behavior does not 
change.  At this point the vet is trying to avoid a liver biopsy because his 
levels are not that bad and the biopsy is so invasive.
