Treating Fatty Liver Disease in Italian Greyhound


Has your Italian Greyhound been diagnosed with fatty liver disease? If so, talk with your vet to learn about treatment options and long-term care. In general, fatty liver disease is a common disease of the liver that occurs mainly in small or toy breeds of dogs. The disease may be caused by lack of a nutritious diet, cancer, diabetes, pancreatitis, kidney disease, and other liver diseases. If the primary cause of the fatty liver disease can be indentified then treatment will be given to fight that particular illness. The fatty liver disease may clear up once the main illness is treated. If the fatty liver disease is the main illness and no other illness or cause can be determined then your vet may recommend a strict highly nutritious diet rich in soy-based or milk-based proteins to prevent the liver cells from storing additional fat. Consult with your veterinarian Sharon, ON for more details.
