Lacey Kay

Lacey Kay’s Journey

Lacey Kay arrived from South Korea on 12/14 weighing only 46 lbs; a Great Pyrenees, that is about half the weight she should be. Plagued with giardia, she has only gained about 10 pounds despite being fed 8 cups of food each day. 

We have done a GI panel which has ruled out exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. When the vet drew her blood, she said that the serum was icteric (a sign that she might have some liver problems). The vet is recommending that we take her to an internist to determine the cause of her elevated liver enzymes. She is having repeat labs drawn to determine our next steps.
