Come to think of it my cousin had a dog go into some kind of liver failure and they used the Denosyl and Pred to treat it. Has your vet mentioned using steroids at all??the Denosyl 425 mg to help her liver function and Marin was also recommended. I was cautioned about using over the counter Milk Thistle because the Marin is formulated for dogs and has just the silymarin, plus many dogs are allergic to the straight Milk Thistle.
They make a product called Denamarin, same company that makes the Marin and Denosyl... would it be cheaper to buy the combined drug?
Thank you for your response and ideas! I will ask my vet about the steroids as I seem to remember they had a reason why they did not want to use that on her. Good point about the Denamarin, as i wondered about that too. I have about 40 pills of the Denosyl but when that is gone, I might be better off to change her to the Denamarin.
And the vet who gave her the ultra sound has given me a prescription for Ciprofloxacin 500 mg for her to treat a possible infection in her liver. I was going to check with my regular vet tomorrow and then start this antibiotic for her.
She is eating well and acts fine, she is not vomiting and has a good appetite. Her arthritis makes her sore and limpy but she seems to be feeling a lot better after taking the doxy for the Lyme.
