Yorkshire Terriers are among the dog breeds most at risk for liver shunts so I thought it was important that I include information about liver shunts on my site.
Since I have never had a dog with a shunt myself (thankfully) I can’t write about my experience or make any suggestions for treatment or care so I started doing a deep dive into the medical facts so I could write about them. But the more I learned, the more I felt that I didn’t know and I quickly realized that I couldn’t do the topic justice. So instead of me trying to explain something I don’t have the background to intelligently discuss, I decided to post the most comprehensive source I could find in it’s original form.
This information was written by Dr. Karen Tobias who is an internationally acclaimed expert on portosystemic shunts and is posted with permission.
