Customer Question
She has high liver...

She has high liver enzymes and does not want to take the antioxidant pill the vet prescribed.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the cat?

She has high liver enzymes and does not want to take the pill the vet gave her. I need a recommendation of something I could possibly put in her food that does not taste bad.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?

Her name is ***** ***** she is 11.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about J-Lo?

She is starting to have arthritis in her right shoulder, but other than that she is a little over weight, but healthy and happy.
