I did notice he's not having diarrhea like before, but his stools are still loose. Thank you for this information!Lactulose will bind any ammonia in uyu's system. You may notice a change in stools, they may get a bit softer and more frequent. You might suggest a Protein C test. It is a simple blood test that is sent to Cornell for analysis. the good thing is it does require any difficult protocols in the draw. I am glad he is home. It is best to stay away from food with high protein content. Avoid products with red meat, especially. If he is not sensitive to dairy, dairy is an excellent source of protein that is very easy on the liver. Is uyu on a special diet! Good luck.
I asked about the Protein C test to the first doctor who saw him at the hospital and she dismissed it, saying the CT scan will show us more details. I wasn't sure so I didn't push back. I will ask his new doctor in case he has a different opinion.
The hospital gave us canned Hills i/d with his discharge, but Uyu does not like it... he has always been very picky! I've been feeding his regular Open Farm kibble, but sticking with only chicken (he was rotating beef and pork previously). I used to mix with Open Farm freeze dried raw (beef, turkey, lamb) but decided to drop it until we figure out what's wrong, and have been shredding small pieces of boiled chicken breast instead. I will try the yogurt and see if he likes it! And if you have any favorite low-medium protein foods, please let me know. Thank you Walter a thousand times!
