Maltese with Gallbladder Disease and Elevated Liver Enzymes

Q: My maltese is 5 years old and last July she had gallbladder surgery due to gallbladder disease. After the surgery,  her liver enzymes were very high. We have been taking her to a specialist that has her on medications and a low fat prescription diet. Her liver enzymes continue to stay high. I don't know what else to do for her and thought I would reach out to you.  If you have a holistic approach that may resolve this issue with her liver, I am willing to try what ever is suggested.

A:  Yes there is a LOT more we can do to help.  You need to look at her diet. Prescription diets contain grains, chemicals and fillers so I would look at more natural alternatives that help a pet's liver to heal.  Here is an article you might find of interest on prescription diets.

Products that would be very helpful for your pup would be:  Special SAMe is a powerful antioxidant, Liver and Gallbladder kit (with, Lypozyme, Power Probiotic, and Liver and Gallbladder supplement) These all-natural supplements are gentle but effective in supporting the liver, gallbladder, pancreas and intestinal tract.. We hope your pup feels better soon
