Blueberry had her SDMA test again and the vet reported that her results were completely normal this time! (PTL!!) So relieved. I did wean her off the Rimadyl during the month between tests so I have no idea if that was a factor. I have no intention of starting her on it again.
The vet did mention there is a new anti-inflammatory called Galliprant that doesn't cause the same organ damage that Rimadyl and other Nsaids can. Anyone ever hear of it? About all I know about it, is it is pretty pricey. Blueberry seems to be doing well with just her supplements, no more kibble diet (freeze-dried and frozen raw), and daily exercise for now, but it's nice to know there is an alternative to help her with pain down the road.
The vet does plan on calling the lab to see if they recommend monitoring Blueberry more closely in the future.
