Liver Biopsy

Patient: 4 year old, male Shi Tzu

Annual Blood work showed elevated liver enzymes.
Consequently, biopsy of liver was necessary.
Rather than a surgical biopsy, the owner elected to do a minimally invasive laparoscopic biopsy.

5 mm of liver was taken for biopsy.

The gall bladder appears as a whitish organ.

Results from biopsy: Lymphoma

Patient was sent back to referring veterinarian for treatment.

The procedure with prep and recovery took less than 1 hour.
