Liver Disease In Dogs And How Zelie Conquered It

Inspiring Pet Tails 3 min read
When Zelie was diagnosed with liver disease, her furmama Marybeth reached out to us for some extra support.

Dogs have such a special way of connecting with humans. Whether they’re cuddled up next to you or staring at you lovingly from across the room, our furkiddo’s unconditional love and quiet support can be so comforting especially when we need it most. That’s why it’s so hard seeing your furry little ones if they’re dealing with an illness like a liver problem. While this news can be devastating, there are options and steps you can take that can help you manage liver disease in dogs.

Liver Disease In Dogs

Liver disease in dogs can happen for a variety of reasons. Some of the factors that can affect your pup’s liver include genetics, aging, infection, medications, diabetes, pancreas issues, and fatty foods

What Are The Symptoms Of Liver Disease?

Some symptoms of liver issues in your pup include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Jaundice
  • Weight loss
  • Increased thirst and urination
  • Seizures
  • Lethargy

Diagnosing Liver Disease

If your dog has these symptoms, your vet may need to do blood tests, x-rays, or even ultrasounds to determine what’s going on with your dog’s liver.

Zelie’s Diagnosis

High levels of AST and ALT could be a sign of potential liver damage.

When three-year-old pup, Zelie got the diagnosis that she had liver disease, her dog mom Marybeth was there to care for her. Along with some of the common symptoms of liver disease, Zelie had high AST and ALT levels on her blood work, which are indicators of potential liver damage.

Determined to find ways to help her girl, Marybeth followed her vet’s advice when they introduced her to NHV.

Supporting Zelie

To help support her liver condition, Zelie started using NHV supplements and Marybeth found that Zelie’s elevated liver enzymes started to decrease dramatically!

I have been using NHV Milk Thistle for over a year for my Labrador with Liver disease. She is responding so very well with this, and doing so much better!! Thank you NHV for your compassionate customer service and exceptional products to help my dog be healthy!!

Zelie’s Regimen

Zelie has been using Milk Thistle to help support her symptoms, naturally.

She’s eating and drinking well, playing and has reduced the vomiting by half of the usual frequency.

Milk Thistle is an herb that is known for its effectiveness in improving liver and kidney function while encouraging the regeneration of the liver. Milk Thistle also has antioxidant properties that may be beneficial as an anti-cancer support. 

Since not all fluffy friends are the same, regimen recommendations can change from case to case. Our pet experts are here to help you find the right regimen for your furkiddo. For many dogs with liver disease, we recommend the Liver Detox And Support Kit. In addition to the Milk Thistle, the kit contains Turmeric which has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties which can help support your little one with liver disease.
