We took our limping rescue lab mix to BluePearl in Tacoma to schedule knee surgery. She had her left need repaired at the same facility in 2011, and we knew the other knee was likely to need surgery in the future. Unfortunately, Lily failed her pre-surgery blood test with an elevated calcium level.
We had no idea what this result meant, and Dr. Lister walked us through all of the information in a way that was understandable and gave us all of our options and answered all of our questions. Lily had thymoma surgery, as well as knee surgery (open heart and knee at the same time!), and came through brilliantly.
She just passed her 1-year blood test and is happy and healthy. We have Dr. Lister and her staff to thank for catching and fixing this life threatening problem. We can’t thank them enough!
