My eight year old poodle stiffened up at night and the next morning. I rushed her to the vet, who took her temperature and felt her stomach, looked at her eyes and said I can't find anything wrong with her. How about we give her a full blood workup. I agreed since it had never been done before. I waited for the test to be complete and she printed out the results and showed me that her liver was not good and told me that she had hepatitis and gave me some pills to give her morning and night and to return in thirty days. My dog is feeling fine now and seems OK, but she does sleep a lot. I looked up hepatitus in dogs and yes, there is such an illness in dogs. It said to not give dogs cheese, but the only way I can get her to take her pill is in cream cheese. She won't take peanut butter and won't let me open her mouth. So, I'm confused as to what to do and to expect with a dog that has hepatitis. The website said about 30% of dogs die. I'm so worried. Has anyone else had a dog with hepatitis?
