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. If your dog refuses his dog food or doesn’t want to run and fetch his dog toys this can also be a sign of liver disease. Although lack of appetite could be many things, it’s¬†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.

Remember, pets are family!
