Fatty Liver Disease in Dogs
Dogs have been known to develop various types of diseases including one called fatty liver disease. This particular disease is more common in small dogs and toy breeds than in larger dogs. For instance, the Toy Fox Terrier may develop fatty liver disease simply because of his size. Fatty liver disease can occur if your dog becomes ill and doesn’t eat for a while. The body will go into survival mode and send access fat to the liver for processing. Sometimes too much fat is sent and the liver is overloaded and can no longer function. This creates fatty liver disease. Symptoms include
An extended abdomen, yellowing of the eyes, weight loss, etc. Your dog cannot function in this situation and his body could shut down. If you think your dog has this illness or your dog is showing signs of being sick at all, visit this site, or please call your veterinary clinic Washington DC.
