Elevated CK on blood test? ideas
So my show gelding who I owned for years displayed stranger behavior and was more grumpy and odd.... I tried a few tests for colic and animal hospital said have local vet run blood tests. A couple levels were high but she said due to burst blood cells in sample.... the CK level was definitely high...not super high but abnormal.... no signs there of an ulcer which could be missed on a blood test still....but for the most part, I do not believe this as the case due to other tests...
So CK level she said hypp (nope doesn't have), pssm (doubleful and if so almost no signs), ty up (has never done so), colic (did show signs on regular grass hay three weeks ago but she said test wouldn't show that now) or torn muscle (no lameness issues) are what the test would show her best guess.... she said he is healthy and sound tests shows minor abnormality probably one of above should be fine. Lately he is back to normal personality
Additional info: I had him tested due to grumpy, alone in pasture, colic deal that lasted four hours and minor, and just change in attitude.... while he had been in pasture for months unridden. He also was grumpy off and on spring training unusual why I did other tests for ulcer there and more pissy in stalls.
