Dogs who suffer with liver disease are often limited in the activities in which they can participate. However, this doesn't mean that they can't still have fun! In the later stages of liver disease, dogs may suffer from lethargy and weakness. Though their bodies may not be up to par, their brains remain very active and still long for mental stimulation. When liver disease is managed and treated, dogs with this illness can continue to enjoy ordinary life and regular daily exercise. With a little ingenuity, liver disease can't keep a good dog down!
Liver disease is a challenging thing for dogs and their owners to have to cope with. Thankfully, in its early stages, it is treatable, and symptoms can be kept at bay via medications and veterinary assistance. Regardless of the severity of your dog's liver condition, they can still benefit from quality time spent with you, and any opportunity to engage their brain and their body will lead to a happier, healthier dog.
