Liver cleansing dietj

Post by Carolyn » Thu Apr 18, 2013 2:44 pm

Well pb has caught up to Kiya's liver. Values are now in 600+ range. My vet agrees we should do the diet recomended by Dr Dodds so this weekend l'll be cooking for her.

Kiya loves her new home cooked diet. I'm going slow with the change. She's a big girl, 118lbs so I really would like to add back a good kibble, this could be pricy.

I had bloodwork done on Kiya Saturday and there was only a few numbers higher so apparently the new diet is keeping her liver values at bay. I also spoke to my vet about zonisimide and weaning her off pb or at least lowering it. She's had about 7 seizures this year that I know of.

It's been a long time since I've posted here. Just wanted to say Kiya is still getting liver cleansing diet, Natures Domain kibble and I give her Honest Kitchen for breakfast. I also added turmeric paste in July of 2014. She had a 6 month seizure free streak which I feel the turmeric played a part in. I had blood tests done a few months ago which showed her liver values came down a bit. She's back to having 1 or 2 seizures a month at the moment.
In May she will be 11yrs old so I'm really satisfied with how she's doing.

Carolyn,

Happy to see your post! I'm glad Kiya is hanging in there, you've been dealing with this for a very long time.

What is turmeric paste and how does it help with the seizures?

So glad that you're having some success. I had given my dogs Turmeric but I didn't notice that it made any difference with Shiloh's seizures, glad to hear that Kiya has done well with it.
