Veterinarians often recommended prescription diets, either for a specific time period or for the rest of the dog's life. Some prescription diets available are: Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Digestive Low Fat LF 20 dry or canned, a diet that is restricted in fat and formulated to aid in the management of pancreatitis. Another prescription diet is Hill's Prescription Diet Canine i/d or Prescription Diet Canine w/d, foods that contain highly digestible nutrients and are low in fat. Eukanuba Reduced Fat is another food suggested at animal clinics.
Perfect technique for visualizing the circulation of the liver, the bile duct system, the density of the liver tissue, the size of the liver. Ultrasound is highly beneficial in the diagnosis of liver disease. We recommend ultrasounding a liver when the liver enzymes tests are elevated over time, or the bile acids test is abnormal. The internal structure (called parenchyma) can be analyzed, and post-hepatic liver disease can be differentiated from hepatic liver disease. This can be very important because disease in the liver can often be diagnosed with a biopsy during the ultrasound. Post-hepatic liver disease cannot easily be diagnosed in this matter. Instead it is diagnosed and treated with an exploratory surgery (called a laparotomy).
