Last night, Kenzie was very active and playful. This afternoon, he’s lethargic. We’re putting his meds and vitamins in a syringe and squirting way back in the mouth. He drinks water OK, but eats only about four tablespoons of food a day. Back to the vet Monday. A friend (involved in Yorkie rescue) suggested we talk to her friend who is a non-vet expert in liver problems specializing in liver-shunts. She suggested lactulose to draw the toxins out of the liver and is good for most liver problems. It requires a prescription and the vet may not give it. Weird, because it is sold over the counter all over the world except for Austria and the US because they think it might be bad for diabetics (but it isn’t-see the Wikipedia entry for lactulose). What are they thinking? Are they thinking? It doesn’t appear that it would harm Kenzie and the worst thing is that it would be a waste of four bucks at Walmart or Target. Considering what the tests cost, why not try it? It would make ME feel a lot better to know we’re doing everything we can.
