I am new to this site and like most others, I am totally confused about what to feed my 4lb Teacup Morkey. I recently took him to the Vet to get his presurgery bloodwork for his upcoming neuter. They told me he has extremely high Liver function results. Normal is 125 and his was 419. I immediately started researching "Liver Shunts" as this is what the vet told me he most likey has. I have seen that starting him on a low protein diet is the least dramatic solution. The most dramatic solution being surgery which has a high mortality rate.
My question is this, for a 6 month old Morkey (half Maltese and half Yorkey) weighing 4lbs, is it ok to feed him raw chicken legs with the skin? After reading multiple posts, I see that I should stick with one protein at a time for several weeks. I plan to do this but also want to know if I should be adding any supplements i.e. milk thistle, dandelion to his diet? Has anyone else had this issue with their small breed dog (Liver Shunt)? I really need advice and guidance on this issue as Dexter is my furbaby and I want the absolute best quality of life for him!
Thanks for reading and I enthusiasitically look forward to any feedback and comments!
