Yorkie with high WBC
My baby just had liver shunt surgery. She is 11 months. This is the 3rd time that her WBC has been very elevated for no apparent reason. Anyone have this same experience?

If she just had surgery I'd suspect the high wbc is in relation to that. Could also be related to stress brought on by pain.

I have no idea, but wanted to suggest that you post in the Sick and Injured Forum or Yorkie Health and diet, so your post doesn't get lost in the huge volume in the General Forum. The members with the most knowledge about your topic always read threads there.

wbcs can go up for a huge number of reasons. Stress, illness, and injury are the biggest ones that I can think of. I would probably keep an eye on it, but not worry too much as long as it's not WAY high. I wish you and your little one the best of luck!
