It's been a little while since I've posted about my 11 yro FeLV+ girl, Ember. 
We did blood work for her in late May, and her BUN and lipase levels were 
elevated. Creatinine was still within normal limits. Did a urine test, and she 
was concentrating her urine just fine.

Yesterday, I took her in for skin problems she's having, which the doc thinks 
is dermatitis. We also ran blood work on her. Her BUN is now 45 (was 39), 
creatinine still normal, lipase high, and her triglycerides are now high. I 
don't have numbers for everything, but the blood work results should arrive 
this weekend. 

I will probably collect urine next week to test specific gravity again. 
Otherwise, I'm not sure of what to do. The doc says elevated lipase indicates 
pancreatitis in dogs, but isn't quite as definitive in cats. I did a little 
reading earlier, and I saw something about adding digestive enzymes to food, 
and that this might help with the lipase and triglyceride levels. Has anyone 
done this? Also, has anyone seen high BUN with normal creatinine and good 
specific gravity? 

Please let me know what you think.
