Elevated Protein Levels
Hey all. Minnie had her dental cleaning a couple of days ago. Pre-surgical screen came back good except for slightly elevated protein levels. She hasn't been wanting to eat much the past 2 weeks either. Vet put her on antibiotics since he thinks she has an infection. He wanted to try feeding her Science Diet K/D. She had some the day after her dental, and ate some. Next day, she had some and threw up 4 times that day. No more of that stuff for her. Fed her chicken broth the rest of the day/night so that she could settle her stomach down. This morning I fed her some oven roasted chicken and she kept that down. I didn't feed her anything during the day since I think her tummy is pretty tender yet. Tonight I fed her more of the chicken and she ate that down fast. Plus she had one of her regular treats which she hasn't really wanted in a few days. She doesn't drink excessive water or have to potty any more than usual and her energy level is normal. I am worried about the protein levels. Have any of you had a dog with this issue? Any info would be much appreciated!

Re: Elevated Protein Levels
Phoenix is on Hills prescription diet, it's the I/D low fat and low protein
I did BOIL a bit of chicken at first, but now I do veggies.
She likes it and Tillie will eat if there's any left over.
