Welcome to the Canine Liver Disease resource website. We understand the heartache that comes with receiving a diagnosis of liver disease for your beloved dog. We created this site to gather all the information about canine liver disease in one place, with the memory of the dogs who left us too soon in mind.

Back in 2002, when my own dog Norman was diagnosed with liver disease (cirrhosis), the internet was not what it is today. Limited resources were available, with only general information and one personal story offering a glimmer of hope. Determined to find an alternative diet and natural supplements for canine liver disease, I embarked on a journey of research, trial, and error.

Against all odds, Norman’s life was extended by two more years, far surpassing the initial prognosis. It was during his remission that I decided to write a book chronicling our experience and sharing the extensive research I had gathered. My mission was clear: to offer support and guidance to anyone else navigating this difficult terrain. Since then, over 10,000 dogs and their pet parents have found solace and healing through the pages of that book.

This website stands as a beacon of hope, providing you with the most up-to-date information on canine liver disease.

Our Mission: We are deeply committed to educating pet parents like you about the signs and symptoms of liver disease – all with the heartfelt intention of preventing, diagnosing, and treating this serious condition. Not only do we provide this valuable information free to the public, but we also share inspiring stories from other pet parents who, just like you, have nurtured and cared for their beloved “liver dogs”.

Our Vision: It is our heartfelt desire to make a significant impact by reducing the number of liver-disease-related illnesses and deaths among our furry friends. Over the past two decades, we have witnessed a remarkable decline in the ranking of liver disease as a leading cause of non-accidental death. When we took our first steps, liver disease was named as the fifth leading cause of non-accidental death in dogs. However, from 2011 to 2023, liver disease is no longer included among the leading causes of death!
