Welcome! My name isXXXXX am a 2003 graduate, and currently a Medical Director of a veterinary hospital.
I am sorry to hear about this concern for her.
Well, you wouldn't be able to say it is specifically due to the jerky.
But, at 3 years of age, and if she has ingested it and gotten sick, a basic blood profile AND urine test would be what is needed.
A blood profile would show values like the BUN (urea build up in the body), creatinine (function of the kidneys), and the urine test shows changes in the urine specific gravity (concentration).
So, a blood profile and urine test would answer a lot of questions and also provide information about liver enzymes, infections, protein levels.
What can tests tell you:Chemistry Panel CBC (complete blood count)Urinalysis
