Chester’s Blood Report

I was so nervous on Monday. I keep looking at the clock.

Me thinking in my head… “Is it time to call the vet?”

Ah finally I ringed the doc and asked for a brief summary of my dog’s laboratory result. Later that evening I dropped by the clinic to hear the full test report.

Ahh what a relief! Everything’s good (kidney ok, liver ok, blood count ok) except that he’s low in calcium & potassium and the sodium level is a bit high. I suspect his kibbles is the one giving the high sodium problem. Now that I think back, Chester really love his current brand of kibbles (Natural Balance) as he never has problem eating them. As for other brands, after awhile he will find it boring and I will have to ‘sogok’ him by mixing his kibbles with milk/egg/veggies. Yes must be the high salt content in NB. CISSS!!! I do sometimes feed him some ‘human’ biscuits but I don’t think that’s the cause of high sodium level. And I also don’t think the culprit is the doggie biscuits as we rarely feed him that. So yes I’m going to change his dog food and get some vitamins for him later. Any good dog food brand to recommend?

4 days after first draining.
