Liver issues can be caused by a variety of different things. Copper storage and autoimmune disease are chronic liver disease and yes, it may be caught early enough (with regular monitoring of liver values) to intervene. However there are plenty of things that can cause acute onset liver damage.

Best wishes to you and your dog, we have been through it and back in the 90s we lost a 4 year old doberman to liver disease. It sucks.
