    Hi there, sorry for the delay in a response. Did you get an answer already? If not, I'd be happy to explain

    Hi Tracy, Can you tell me the other dogs in his pedigree with liver disease? I have been trying to look into other pedigrees for a direction to go. I'll be looking for a pup in the next year or so and would really appreciate the info. Ironically, Drago's pedigree resembles that of some dogs I have been looking at. Makes you scared to go in any direction!!!! Thanks for your consideration.

    Drago is stabilized finally and back up to his normal weight. We have an appointment tomorrow to recheck his liver function and make sure the infection of his urinary tract has cleared up. Sorry to hear about your dog. Drago is not related to Repo Man nor Lex Luthor. There are only a couple in his pedigree with liver disease; actually a bunch more cancer and cardio issues than liver so this was a surprise. You can view Drago's pedigree on my website at: or on the DPCAs dobequest at

    Dietary changes - low copper diet. I just bought Hill's Science Diet liver disease formula which is a prescription diet. I am also filtering his drinking water. He is on Denamarin which contains SAMe and Milk Thistle to help reduce inflammation and heal the liver. I am awaiting doing instructions for a metal chelating agent, penicillamine, to get the excess copper out of the liver to prevent further damage. They may also put him on Acigall, a bile acid, to assist with liver healing and repair as well. Not sure if he's a candidate for steroid therapy or not, it may cause more problems than good. Keep an eye on my thread and I will let everyone know what the treatment plan is.
