Madison recently went to the vet for a checkup and the medications and new diet are working their magic!  Her liver values are back to normal and the rest of her bloodwork has shown much improvement! She has even gained 6 pounds! For now, Madison will stay on her chelation medication to continue to rid her body of copper for the next 6-8 months and will continue to be on her Hills L/D (liver care) food.

She loved the snow so much its was almost impossible to get a picture of her! Black Labrador Retriever Black Labrador Retriever Black Labrador Retriever

Madison made a speedy recovery from her spay/liver biopsy surgery and has been enjoying long walks in the woods with her house mate.Black Labrador Retriever Black Labrador RetrieverBut due to Madisons liver biopsy coming back with HIGH values of copper storage she will now be on a special dog food to help her liver along with a steroid (to help with inflammation), a copper chelator ( to help pull the copper out of her body), and two supplements (to help her liver regenerate). She will be on this regimen for a month and then she will get re tested to see if her body is accepting the meds and diet change! Madison has been in high spirits and is still the happiest, most go lucky girl you’ll ever meet!
