Elevated Liver Enzymes - What Helped Fred?

At a recent vet visit, Fred's mom (Sheryl) had blood work run and found out that Fred's liver enzymes were elevated. Here is what Sheryl sent us: 

"Our sweet Fred is 17 years old. He is happy, active and enjoys his daily walks. A few months ago, the vet reported that Fred’s liver enzymes were elevated. We started Fred immediately on the Liver Support supplements from Ask Ariel. After just a few months, the vet reported that Fred’s liver enzymes were at nearly normal levels. We are so thankful that your supplements helped so quickly. The vet was very happy with Fred’s improvement as are we. Thank you so much for all you do to help our pets! Fred gives Ask Ariel two paws up!" Sheryl

Legend Visits One Of California’s Crown Jewels

Mt. Whitney is the tallest mountain in CA and it’s surrounding areas have been featured in many of our greatest Western films. Our #cancerwarrior Legend, at 14 years old, led the way up the trail as the cool mountain air invigorated him. When he took his first steps, Legend stumbled on a few small boulders. But he kept going— slow and steady as we hiked on this magnificent wilderness trail. We had to turn him around about 40 minutes into the hike due to his age and health concerns, but he was still going strong. Over 7 weeks ago, we found out Legend had inoperable liver cancer (see his bare tummy). As the saying goes: The journey of a thousand miles begins with just one step.

Lipomas - Fatty Tumor Lumps on Dogs

Have you ever felt a lumpy bump under your pets skin?  Your first reaction might be panic, does my dog have a tumorous cancer? The most common cause are Lipomas, which are a benign tumor, often referred to as a fatty tumor. They are more common in overweight female dogs and certain breeds are more likely to develop them including: Doberman Pinschers, Schnauzers (miniatures), and Labrador Retrievers. The fatty tumors usually show up  on the torso, neck, upper legs and armpits. It's a way for the body to get rid of toxins when the body cannot eliminate them through other ways such as the kidneys, livers and intestines.  

The first step is to visit your veterinarian to make sure it is a Lipoma and not something more serious.  Often a fine needle aspiration or biopsy will be done to confirm that it is a Lipoma.  Your veterinarian will work with you to monitor the size and determine if surgical removal is needed.

Holistic care can help lipomas.  Omega 3s such as  Amazing Omegas, and liver support supplements can help your pet eliminate toxins and help prevent another fatty tumor.  Many times the fatty tumor is developing due to a lack of essential fatty acids (good Omega 3) in the diet.
