Your post was truncated at '...(who I trest) has". Please clarify.

Can you upload a copy of all of Sam's test results? I understand that you might not have a copy at home but his vet can provide you with a copy that you could upload here as a .pdf file or you can photograph the pages and upload them as images. I not only review the test results but also note which tests should have been performed but weren't.
