I have an 9 year old spayed female pit/terrier mix with a history of liver disease. She has recently been getting hairless black spots showing up on her sides and legs, especially in the rear. Her biopsy came back as possibly ischemic dermatomyosits. The antibiotic that her vet put her on seems to have made no difference, and the fish oil and vit E are A) difficult to give her and B) she hasn’t been on them long enough to know if they are helping. She has no apparent muscle involvement. Would doing blood studies for autoimmune diseases help me get a better plan for treatment? What specialist would be best to manage her care? Any information or help in this problem would really be appreciated!
My cat is 4 years old and was diagnosed with fatty liver disease. She spent 5 days in the hospital and was sent home where she’d be more comfortable. She is still not eating on her own so we are having to syringe feed. We have hills AD food and a 10mL syringe. I am wondering how much I should feed her per day so that she is getting the proper amount of calories.

My 17-year-old cat has had liver disease for the past 5 years and has been taking Denamarin all of that time, about one month ago we took him off the Denamarin to see if he received the same health benefits.Today he got an upset stomach. I just want to be sure it is safe before giving him any.
Lost our lovely west highland terrier a year ago now have two westies Olly and dasy , have some time of work ,vet never told exactly what was wrong with him found out liver disease and tumour on liver , could I have done more ,
We had our dog spaid on Tuesday. When we brought her home she wasn’t herself. Wouldn’t eat and hardly active. 2 days went by and she seemed worse. We brought her back to banfield and they told us to bring her to the hospital. They told us she was dying from liver failure and she had cancer. We decided to put her to sleep because she seemed to be in pain. How does a healthy 5 year old dog go in to get fixed and comes out dying? No one could give us answers as to why her blood work was normal before the procedure and after everything was wrong. Banfield did admit to giving our dog a Lyme disease shot for no reason. Not sure if that had to do with something. Have you ever heard of a case like this? I just want answers.
Diet is sunflower seeds, canary seeds etc with green vegetables. i have visited a vet and he said liver disease as suggested antibiotics and detoxicating agent. But no recovery.
I have a 14 year chihuahua , his name is Napo short for Napoleon. He started with a stiff neck, and first vet missed the diagnose, took him to my original vet who took X-ray and found herniated disc on his neck. Started laser therapy every day, an was only put on tamadrol, after a week he seem not be improving. So he is in prednisone, tamadrol, methocarbamol and gabapentin. Today is day two of taking all his meds. I also I’m keeping him now in a carrier crate and only out to take him out to pee and poop and eat. During day time he seems fine and sleeps all night long. But after midnight when he falls asleep with the neck sideways he women’s up crying of pain and with the stiff neck and that goes until 7 am and then from there on he sleeps fine.
He walks fine, just seems week, eats twice a day and I feed him with spoon or my hand. He is spoil by me. My dilemma is should I let him go through these three weeks of misery and no life quality when he is 14 years old, I feel like I am being selfish and letting him go through all this pain because I don’t want to let go. He has always have liver disease so Vet is concern about giving prednisone and all the new meds, he also takesMetronidazole, Ursodiol, Amoxicillin and Demarin. So that is a total of 8 medications. Poor thing is only 5 pounds.
I made appt with Vet Surgeon to consider the possibility of CT or Myelogram to rule out neoplasm the cause of the pain. I cannot afford MRI cost and he is too old to go through surgery, I read recovery is very difficult.
How do I know when it is time to let go???
docter said as per blood report my dog suffering from liver and kidney disease, pls assist me
Normally, Cookie needs minimum of 3 hours of high activity (running through the bush, chasing critters, playing …) daily, otherwise she climbs the walls (pretty much literally). Ortho suggesting a month or more of rest. I voice that it is impossible unless Cookie sedated. (Because the more energy she stores up the more she’s likely to go crazy regardless of environment, confinement and situation. As I mention, literally bouncing off the walls. Plus the frustration and feeling unhappy that would come with that I’m sure does not facilitate healing either.
So we discussed it and ortho prescribed the Trazodone as effective and safe. What is your experience with this products? Side effects? Interestingly I specifically asked about side effects and was told there were none. However, when one looks it up there are side effects listed. Of course, side effects such as sedation are desirable. Others, such as vomiting, diarrhea, agitation, hyperactivity, panting, shaking and restlessness are NOT.
Ortho vet also said drug doesn’t not affect either kidneys or liver but infor says should be used with caution if liver, kidney or heart disease present. Cookie does not have those but if it doesn’t affect those organs, why the precaution?
I am not a fan of drugs but I feel that in order for Cookie to be able to undergo the period of restricted activity some chemical management to help her feel more aloof is necessary. Thoughts?
