Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hi Dr. Gary,
Thank you for your response. Yes, Violet has had an ultrasound and liver biopsy which showed the cysts to be benign but several in her liver and also her intestines. Her abdomen was also quite full of fluid which makes me think her kidneys are also affected. My Vet has not answered my concerns and only wants to perform surgery stating that is the best option. My gut instinct is that it is NOT!
The supplements you mention, Denosyl and Denamarin, do I need a prescription for these? Because it might be easier to go with the Milk Thistle? I have also read that 'Vital Greens' are also very good for dogs with liver conditions?
Thank you Dr. Gary. You have been most helpful. Many blessings, Glenda & Violet woof!
