Dr. Roger and Dr. Karen discuss a little known but common liver disease in dogs that can be present for months to years without a dog showing outward signs.  This condition, known as Idiopathic Canine Vacuolar Hepatopathy, may not show outward signs, but could significantly predispose an affected dog to cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer.  E-mail questions or comments to possibly be adressed on the air by Dr. Roger and Dr. Karen to comments@web-dvm.net.
