older yorkie and liver problems...anyone else?

Sydney silka Hendon

As my little Sydney gets older(15), she has had a couple of serious episodes where she ended up at the vet with high liver enzymes and a infectious looking liver.

Is this common and do I just need to carefully watch her diet.
My vet placed her on L/D by presciption diet. Can anyone give me some advice?

liver issue in yorkies
by: leaselvey20@gmail.com

our yorkie had a liver shunt issue! But with the lactulose - and neamyicin and proper diet she did well. We used a special canned food and we found later that if we took some of it backed it they made wonderful treat ---- she loved those. other wise her diet was pretty bland. Also, if you go to get her spayed---- have them do blood work and check her numbers ( the vet will know) we actually lost our yorkie after having her spayed due to blood clotting issues. Otherwise, she was a great dog! But try the treats---- She loved those!!!! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about your dogs condition.

High liver enzymes
by: Barbara

My Yorkie is nine and has had this problem since she was a pup. We see a holistic vet who has had her on Milk Thistle...three drops a day...which keeps the count under control.
