I'll ask the vet about the bone marrow when i see her and ask about anti inflammatories. Bella eats 3 or 4 times a day she tells me when she wants food, she'll bark for food and demands it when she wants it. If she's asking for food she gets it. I'll update you after the 9th April and tell you how things are going. Thanks Jo

Hi jo, bella's had her pcv test done last Monday and again today. Last week pcv was 37 and its 40 today. So it's going back up to normal because it was down to 30. The vet sent blood to the lab today to check her coagulation. She was on about checking for dic. She did say maybe bella's had a small bleed in the gut somewhere previously and that would explain her pcv levels dropping a few weeks ago. She's gained her weight back on in two weeks and gained weight again today.

That is brilliant news.  I wonder if the previous blood sample had clotting which would have lowered the reading and given an artificial low result.  This is very common. 

Whatever it was, she is on the up and that is great news.

Thanks for the update

Hi jo, i haven't posted in a while, things have been really good with Bella, her liver enzymes are back to normal and have been for quite some time. Bella turned 7 in November, her weight has increased over the past 6 months or so and she's been holding her weight. Bella hasn't had any antibiotics for more than 6 months. She's been doing fine with out them. Bella's a picture of health when she had her check up this week the vet said she has a liver problem but considering that bella's doing fine and looks really good.
