I posted awhile back about having a fat cat and wondering how much he should eat. One of the people who responded cautioned me about reducing his food too quickly or by too much b/c it can lead to liver problems.

This week I had some bloodwork done on my cat and it came back some component of his liver tests was high. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the enzyme/chemical. All I know is that the upper limit is 100 and my cat's was 105. The vet didn't seem overly concerned and said that it wouldn't interfere with him being "knocked out" for dental cleaning.

I, however, am concerned that something I may be doing at home is causing this. Can someone give me some advice on what I may or may not be doing that can contribute to this?

Wolfgang is 13 yrs old and the vet said he is 17 lbs (I thought he was closer to 20 when I weighed him at home, but I was trying to use a bathroom scale so it may not have been that accurate). She did NOT comment on his size at all. He is solid (not flabby), so maybe his weight isn't as much of an issue as I think.

Thanks for any help/advice.
