Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a few questions for you to better assess your situation.

Are his other enzymes normal?

Does he seem to be drinking, eating and urinating often?

Has your vet had an ultrasound of the abdomen done?

I am not able to make phone calls at this time, but I can opt out and let another expert take over who would be able to discuss over the phone.
