Liver Disease in Dogs – 9/10 Times It’s for This Reason

Smooth-haired DachshundThe rise in liver disease in dogs has wreaked havoc on the canine population and pet owners everywhere. By the time a pet owner notices the jaundice or orange urine commonly seen in dogs with diseased livers, the time and expense of treating such a condition markedly multiplies.

Dog owners being the loyal pet owners they are often want to do what’s best for their pet and are known for pulling out all the stops when it comes to treatment. However, no treatment can be effective until pet owners understand how their dog became sick in the first place.

Dog Liver Disease-How Did my Dog Get it?

To understand how liver disease in dogs materializes, it is necessary to understand the function of the liver. Just as in humans, the liver is a very important organ that works as a filter for detoxifying the entire blood supply of a canine’s system. Not only does the liver produce bile, it produces blood proteins for plasma, converts waste products and most importantly regulates the level of chemicals in the blood stream.

However, when a daily diet is filled with everything from additives and preservatives to industrial chemicals and toxic molds, the liver becomes battered trying to ensure a dog’s system stays in balance.

As stated by Dr. Tom Lonsdale, BVet Med, MRCVS, “Junk food is laden with colorants, preservatives, humectants and a raft of other strange chemical additives-none of with any nutritive value and all toxic to varying degrees. Long-term exposure to the diet-related toxins leads to disease of body organs. Diseased organs produce more toxins, which enter the bloodstream and add to the spiral of worsening disease.”

Unfortunately, pet owners that come up against dog liver disease symptoms and continue to feed from cans or bags will be stuck in an endless cycle. While making expensive trips to the vet and treating their beloved canine companion in hopes of getting well, they will still be feeding the very thing that made their dog sick in the first place.

The worst of it is, the dog must suffer every moment through this endless cycle, all because pet owners are duped into believing that there is little else to be done beyond what medical science can offer. It is also the reason why so many dog owners lose their beloved pets way too soon.

  1. That is a very interesting point. Commercial diets have been blamed for everything from allergies to cancer. And yet there is still such a strong push towards them.

    I wish the experts would realize this and stopped brainwashing public into the need of feeding commercial dog food.

  2. Until there is legislation in place (just as there is with human food) nothing will be done and pets will suffer. The ‘so called’ experts are either profit driven or hand-tied by governing bodies. We have become comfortably numb by the small screen message as convenience has trumped nature… while our beloved compannions suffer a laundry list of diet related diseases-sad.
