Liver Disease/Failure Solution for Dogs™
While these signs and symptoms can lead you to suspect liver disease/failure, they are also present in other conditions. A comprehensive liver panel from a blood chemistry report is essential to be able to determine whether a dog does indeed have a liver disease.
Indicative Signs and Symptoms:
- Loss of appetite and weight loss
- Prolonged vomiting or severe diarrhea
- Blood in urine or feces
- Increased thirst and need to urinate
- Yellowing of gums, skin and eyes (jaundice)
- Build-up of fluid in the belly (Ascites)
- Seizures in severe cases
- Progressive nervous system problems such as unstable walk
MillieA diagnosis of liver disease/failure means there is serious damage to the function of the liver. When this diagnosis is evident in blood work through elevated liver enzymes there is already a deficit in liver function of 60% or more. This damage can be caused by many factors, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or poisons which can set the stage for acute liver failure. Chronic problems causing liver cell damage range from long term exposure to poisons, cancer of the liver or infections.
Infectious Canine Hepatitis is one of the most common viral liver diseases diagnosed in dogs although there are many other diseases affecting the dog’s liver. Hepatitis can be transmitted through direct contact with urine, use of contaminated objects like food bowls and bedding - virtually anything it touches. This virus can live in urine and feces adding to the contagious risk aspect. If your dog is diagnosed with infectious hepatitis or any infectious liver disease, use Essential Immune along with this Liver Disease/Failure formula.
When liver disease is most pronounced in the biliary system a dog is likely to appear jaundiced (due to biliary obstruction and possibly an enlarged liver).
Liver Disease/Failure Solution restores healthy liver function, halts hepatocellular (liver cell) death and assists in the regeneration of liver cells. This solution also breaks up biliary obstruction thereby addressing the visible indications of jaundice associated with liver disease. The abnormal profile of liver enzymes in the blood chemistry report that are characteristic of liver disease/failure will progressively return to normal as your dog recovers. Use Essential Immune along with Liver Disease/Failure Solution if there is an infectious component.
- Stops liver cell death
- Assists in the regeneration of liver cells
- Breaks up biliary obstruction to address jaundice
- Establishes healthy liver enzymes
Dosage Recommendation: Given the severe nature of this illness, it is recommended that the beginning dosage be assertive. Consult our canine health advisor as using the dosage weight chart may well be inadequate.
