Liver Disease | Spare A Thought For Dogs

THINK BOX

Last month, I lost my beloved 11-year-old Golden Retriever, Chopper, so suddenly that I could hardly accept the truth. It was beyond my expectations since he had just fully recovered from a liver disease. He had gained weight, looked healthy and had been able to exercise as usual.
