The Importance of Liver Health and Same

Does your dog or cat seem noticeably different lately? Has there been a loss of appetite and even vomiting? Itís a possibility that your pet is having liver problems. Owners typically take good care of their pets but not many know just how bad liver problems can be. We want to inform you of just how vital your petís liver is to its overall health

Why Does Your Pet Need a Healthy Liver?

The liver is the largest part of a dog or catís body, very reflective of your petís health. Here are some reasons why you should make sure your pet has a healthy liver.

  • The liver affects growth, fighting diseases, supplying nutrients, providing energy, and success in reproduction.
  • An unhealthy liver can cause discomfort in your petís lifestyle, emotionally and physically.
  • Liver diseases can be a gateway to other diseases given that it overlaps with other vital organs.
Signs Your Pet May Have Liver Problems

Determining if your pet has liver problems can be difficult but with these tips, you may be able to find out earlier, preventing further liver damage.

  • Changes in eating pattern: your pet may lose its appetite or vomit the food it eats; diarrhea and fatigue may also occur.
  • High rate of enzymes: regular blood tests can show unusually high levels of enzymes indicating signs of liver problems.
  • Blood-clotting tests: if you think your pet ingested poison (Arsenic in rat poison and anti-freeze), canine poisoning prevents blood from clotting normally.
