Liver Disease

I cant find the original thread about this nor can I find if the diagnosis was actually a liver shunt but I did want to mention that liver shunt is frequently (not always) an inherited condition.Though it may skip a generation it is not unusual for a close relative of the newly diagnosed dog to also have had the shunt(s) (parent or grandparent). If your dog was purchased from a concerned and quality breeder he/she should be told if the dog has been officialy diagnosed with a liver shunt condition. Unfortunately unethical breeders who are not concerned with the health issues of their breeding stock will allow this and other health conditions to continue.
