    UnhappySick 8 year old black lab

    Good morning,

    My poor boy has cirrhosis of the liver. I dodn't know what to do. The vet said his liver is covered in nodules and scar tissue. This vet suggested a liver specialist. How can a liver rejuvenate itself if it's damaged so bad? Does any one know how they would determine if his liver can be saved? I'm heart broken...

    What medication is he on? Milk thistle can do wonders for the liver.

    He's on milk thistle.. he is also on 9 other meds. I think it's time to put him to sleep. He's not eating and he will not take his meds. I can't say that I blame him. He lived a very good life. Thank you for your response.

    Thank you for your support. He doesn't have the strength any more to fight.
