    Thank you this was so informative and so wonderful my dog is still in the process of being diagnosed with this we just got the liver function test back we're still waiting for the results of her myasthenia graves test but I don't think it's that… but we were prescribed lactulose for stool softening and an antibiotic and also denamarin advanced for liver protection and also a hepatic dog food which I'm not too crazy about I am definitely looking into homemade recipes I feel much more comfortable with that and I'm very happy that you said the shunt that your keys are prone to are very easy to correct surgically I'm hoping if she does have one it's that one and that her liver is not too far gone and surgery may be an option and then in that case hopefully it's something I can financially figure out I'm going to be scheduling her for an ultrasound on Monday

    We honestly reserved getting our dog neutered and fed him lower protein food because of finances. we were going to get him neutered (at age 3) and took him for a well check. Our daughter picked up on some issues and asked for some bloodwork and we learned about the congenital liver shunt. We couldn't believe the diagnosis and were so relieved we didn't just go ahead and neuter him. We are making his own food now and adding in supplementation. Trying to get his weight up and learn what we can to give him the longest life possible. This was helpful, thank you very much!

    Our german Shepherd puppy most likely has the intra shunt and is having 10 second long seizures, diarrhea and is under weight.  This has been really hard on us.. Thank you so much for the info

    Very good video. I would only have liked to hear Dr. Becker explain to the viewers about MVD (tiny micro shunts inside the liver, for which there is not surgery, only management control with a low protein diet). Also explain that only a Doppler ultrasound would be better to diagnose it and even better a scintigraphy. And surgery is required for extra hepatic shunts.
