    Defaultliver enzymes

    Gabby had a small seizure or other neurological event (vet's term), so we ran a full blood panel this week.

    She has slightly elevated liver enzymes. Any clue if that can be connected to the seizure/event and what can cause that reading?

    Defaultlabs and elevated liver enzymes

    Hi gabbys mom,

    Did you ever find further details about elevated liver enzymes in relation to labradors? I notice that there were no responses by any forum members, and also that you didn't have a follow up post (to date anyway).

    I am not sure if seizure is connected to elevated liver enzymes but I can give you info on natural supplements to help bring the enzymes back in normal range.

    I buy the SAMe and MT at vitacost.com(great prices) and the other vitamins (E, B-50 complex) at GNC. She is also now on C 1000mg/day and alfalfa 300mg 2/day (both from GNC) for liver support.

    NSI SAM-e -- 400 mg - 30 Enteric Coated Tablets - Vitacost

    Enzymatic Therapy Super Milk Thistle -- 120 UltraCaps - Vitacost

    Good luck with your baby and prayers you can get her levels down.

    liver shunt and seizure in dogs - Google Search

    If you can't get levels down and there is no liver shunt (Ultra Sound would show this) than i would do an acid/bile test to see if liver is functioning properly. You fast the dog - draw blood - feed a meal and draw blood again 1-2 hours later.
