Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to assist you.I'm sorry to hear about this problem for your dog.I do have several suggestions for you to give him:1. Vitamin E--d-Alpha-tocopherol (not d-l) at a dose of 10 IU/kg/day2. SAMe (S-adenosyl-methionine) at a dose of 10 mg/lb once daily3. Milk Thistle (Silymarin) 20–50 mg/kg per day #2 and #3 can be purchased as human supplements but they are combined in one veterinary product called Denamarin (LINK) .4. Many dogs with liver disease will benefit from antibiotics since bacterial colonization can easily take place. If he's not already taking them, Clavamox, Cephalosporin or Metronidazole are good choices. I usually prescribe them for several weeks.I hope this helps. Deb
