Check out this supplement. My vet recommended it when our chihuahua had a high enzyme. Turns out the high enzyme was partially caused by gum disease.

High enzymes I think don't necessarily always mean liver disease; other infections can cause high liver enzymes.

Thursday things turned to the worse. She seemed to have no feeling below the neck. Emergency vet believed it may be a tumor or worsening leaking of spinal fluid. Our kids rushed home to say their goodbyes and Luna was peacefully euthanized yesterday morning.

This was our first experience of this. Luna was our first and only dog and we all were worried about the process. Would she be in distress or pain? I'm comforted to know how peaceful it was and I know she knew we were there loving her to the very end.

It was difficult not to hop out of bed this morning to prepare her breakfast and insulin. She was the perfect family dog. I hope she is in a better place with her sight restored, chasing bunnies like she did in her youth. Happy and pain free.

Thanks to everyone through the years that have been so helpful and caring. You have been an invaluable resource.

OMG, I never expected something so quick. God's message was clear I guess.
Know that Luna enjoyed every day with you all, and that's the best we can do. Make them happy and they make us happy.
