I have a 12 year old Carinoodle who had a bad report on blood

Customer Question

I have a 12 year old Carinoodle who had a bad report on blood levels concerning liver -- gave meds and special diet as directed -- his latest blood work shows no improvement in fact Vet says it is worse -- continue meds and enjoy him. Are liver problems common in this breed? Is there nothing that can be done for him?

Sorry to hear Paddington (that is a cute name!) is having liver issues. Are you able to send the chemistry results? Does your vet have a diagnosis? What are Paddington's clinical signs--what was he doing that made you take him in? What medications and diet are you giving?
