When we first met Maya one year ago, she was severely limping from arthritis in her knees. Our treatment plan included pain management and a strict diet. Today, she is 8 lbs lighter and we swear she looks 2 years younger!! Way to go Maya!!

It’s “What’s that? Wednesday”, where we discuss medical terms and conditions to satisfy your inner nerd 🤓 . LIPEMIA (lie-‘pee-mee-ah): the presence of a high concentration of lipids (fats) within the blood. This causes a “strawberry milk” appearance to the serum instead of the normal pale straw color. Lipemia can interfere with some lab tests, which is why we might need to be fasted prior to having our blood drawn. While lipemia is often an incidental finding, pets with certain illnesses (like pancreatitis) may be more likely to have lipemia. If your pet has lipemia and is feeling sick, further testing and a diet change may be in order!
