Best food other than prescription for liver problems

Recommended Posts

Recently my Cairn's liver numbers haven't been good.  She has been eating Blue Buffalo, but the Vet put her on the Science diet k/d.  She always did well on the Blue Buffalo and now she just doesn't seen right.  Is there anything out there that can be given besides the expensive and smelly prescription food?

I only recently joined, I had a Cairn who was 16 and I had to put her down in December - at 15 she developed liver issues.

 

i see you posted awhile ago, hopefully things have gotten better....

if not maybe you could try making her food and controlling what is in it, there are websites specifically about liver issues and diets for such.

You could also take a look at a Facebook page called "Planet Paws" - I have spoken to the guy - Rodney Habib- he has done a lot of work on pet nutrition, you might find something there as well.

Welcome to the forum!

Several of our members have had Cairns with liver issues and I'm sure they will stop by to share their experiences.  In my (very limited) experience with vets recommending food I have always taken their advice with a grain of salt and have done my own research on the subject.  It's a balancing act to both fulfill your dog's nutritional requirements/restrictions and to feed your dog something they truly enjoy.  Even the best vet in the world doesn't know *your* dog as well as you do.
