It's not good news. The labs came in, and her liver functions are WAY off... so it's very probably toxin from that damn lawn. However, Joanne is careful to say "most likely" and not "definitely". I'm taking her to a clinic for x-rays this afternoon. Joanne is also afraid she may have a shunt around the liver.... I'm PRAYING that's NOT it. That wouldn't be from the toxins, but could be congenital, which wouldn't surprise me since she IS a puppy mill survivor... but, again, I'm praying it's not, because it could be fatal.
Thank God she's been giving her all the fluids and antibiotics... that's, I'm sure, what's helped keep her going. As high as the liver values are now, they must have been much higher before she started with the fluids. We'll never know how bad they were. Joanne said she may need IV fluids, however, since the clinic we're going to is not a 24 hour care, there wouldn't be anyone there at night to watch that she wouldn't pull the IV out... so I won't leave her there. Joanne said if that's the case, she will continue to give her fluids every day as long as she needs it.
Thank God I've got pet insurance now. And.. I applied for Care Credit yesterday (just in case) and was shocked that I was approved, so that will help pay for the vet, and when I get reimbursed from the insurance, I'll be able to pay off Care Credit.
Please pray for my little girl. I can't lose her ... especially not now... and she's so young, she doesn't deserve this.
I'll update this when I know more. Thanks for sticking this out with me.
