Your pets liver is vital for metabolism and to get rid of toxic products. Did you know that up to ten percent of cats and dogs that go to the veterinarian have a liver problem. Dr. David Tweed, who is a veternarian at Colorado State University says that liver disease is not necessarily age related. There are some types of liver disease that can occur in older animals but liver disease can occur at any age.  If you notice a yellow tint around your pets nose or eyes, take her to the veterinarian. Some other symptoms can include loss of appetite or vitality. It is always important to remember, never try to self diagnose your pet or administer any pet medication that is not prescribed by your vet. Your vet is the only person who knows what’s best for a sick pet.
