Basically his liver has been damaged because of his diabetes... its a little bit enlarged but seeing that what now appears to be signs of diabetes were taken as something else we arenít sure how long he has had it so his liver has been compromised... itís not bad, itís just taking a little longer to respond to the treatment plan, he was only diagnosed in October and we are now in January so he is going in the right direction and everything else is responding well to treatment itís just this is taking longer than the others... we have also taken out the internal flee treatment he was on which we donít think helped it at all... he has samylin 2 times a day and he has a liver booster shot every 6 weeks to boost the liver function... we are also going to discuss adding milk thistle in as well to help him as well... apparently it is hard to stabilise a liver on a normal healthy dog so it will take longer on a dog with diabetes...
