Who is this course for?
This course is primarily intended to provide further information on specific conditions to owners, but other pet and veterinary professionals are also welcome.
What is the Seminar About?
There are many causes of liver disease in dogs and it can be challenging to understand what the implications are for you and your companion. Different conditions can have very different prognosis and in this talk I hope to discuss some of the most common reasons for liver enzymes to be up and what this might mean.
Many owners want to take a more active and knowledgeable role in their dog’s health. This course is designed to help you do this by giving you as much information as possible on how we diagnose and treat chronic liver conditions, in particular the options for dietary management.
Topics we will cover:
- So many causes of ‘liver disease…’ – What do these names mean?
- Breed predisposition – A discussion of hereditary liver diseases including liver shunts and copper storage disease.
What do the tests mean?
- Does a rise in liver enzymes necessarily mean there is liver disease?
- Xrays, Ultrasound, Exploratory laparotomy and biopsies
- Further imaging? (CT and MRI)
Secondary issues associated with liver disease
- Liver disease in association with IBD and Pancreatitis (Triaditis)
- Hepatic Encephalopathy
- The gall bladder
- Clotting disorders
Dietary Management of Liver Disease
- Discussion of most common products on the market for liver disease
- Protein source and protein % – when to reduce protein and how much?
- Differing vitamin and mineral requirements
- Copper restriction in different hepatic conditions.
- Zinc and it’s wide-reaching effects on the liver
- Clotting disorders and vitamin K?
- The unenviable challenge of balancing a homemade diet for liver disease.
- The extra challenge of young, active or growing dogs with liver shunts…
Attending live means that you will be able to ask questions at the time. Question and answer session be unavailable if you are watching the seminar after the date although you will still have access to the recording of the Q and A session which is likely to still contain useful information 🙂
A link will be available to watch after the seminar date for those who are unable to attend on the night.
Please note – whilst there will be plenty of time for questions on the LIVE date, remember that (as I am not your dog’s own vet) I can only discuss general options and cannot make specific recommendations for your companion.
