The liver is an important organ , whether you have four legs or two. This essential component of our day to day functioning resides in the front of the abdomen, surrounding the stomach. It has many essential functions, including removing toxins, storing several important vitamins and minerals, regulating blood sugar, and synthesizing several important proteins.
When the liver is in trouble, things can go south quickly. Because the body relies on this organ for so many vital tasks, a liver that is not up to par affects our patients tremendously. Unfortunately, pet liver problems are quite common. Hanford Veterinary Hospital feels that proactive and early action is essential when it comes to maintaining your pet’s hepatic health, and what better way to start than learning a little about the trouble that can occur in this amazing organ.
