Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Sorry, my info was incomplete and wrong due to a bad fax and misunderstanding with person at office when I called about it.
AST/ALT are fine, both midrange. All else normal including T4.
CPK was what was 652, vet said they noted distinct heart murmur.
At end of report wrote, "R/O FIC, CRD stage II (IRIS)"
So now apparently they were ruling out FIC and CRD as possibilities, I am guessing only because it is common and they look for it. According to a web page his values are in range for stage II. BUN 32, creatinine 2.0, sp. gravity 1.027
I took him in because his fur was matting and I had been clipping it with scissors but cut his skin and there was a wound, plus he had an ingrown nail on one paw. I am guessing one or both of these could have caused the high CPK, as apparently lots of things including wounds can cause it. They did not even mention it when discussing the labs. They only said to try to get him to drink more water and switch to wet food.
Abnormal lab levels:
30-50 RBC in urine, Blood "3+", Moncytes high at 4.2%, MCHC marginally low at 28.2
Thanks for all your help.
