Because albumin is produced by the liver, markedly decreased liver function could result in hypoalbuminemia, especially if combined with abnormal losses. Given the liver enzyme elevations, serum bile acids should be measured to evaluate liver function. Coagulation testing may be in order prior to any invasive procedures. Albumin is also a negative acute phase rectant, so the inflammation may decrease heptic production. Starvation can lead to hypoalbuminemia, but this patient’s body condition appeared adequate and her history of anorexia was relatively acute.

Golden yellow bile pigment occurs extracellularly in some areas. This is compatible with bile peritonitis. B Smears consist of many vacuolated macrophages containing abundant granular blue-green to black pigment. Smudges of golden yellow pigment occur extracellularly. Scattered nondegenerate neutrophils and occasional red blood cells are present in the background. An etiologic agent is not present. Interpretation CBC Leukogram: Neutrophilic leukocytosis with lymphopenia and no morphologic abnormalities is consistent with corticosteroid-induced changes in the leukogram, although monocytosis is not present.

Coagulation: Both the PT and APTT are markedly prolonged, consistent with defective secondary hemostasis. In combination with the clinical signs and low BUN, prolonged clotting times suggest the possibility of decreased liver function and appropriate testing should be done.
