      Hepatitis

      My 10 year old lab has been diagnosed with this terrible disease. She is on Denamarin, Ursodiol, and prednisone for inflammation. The vet wants to add Atopica as additional anti-inflammatory med. I gave her one capsule and she vomited so I stopped. Does anyone on this site have any advice or experience with treatment of hepatitis? Thank you!

      I'm so sorry..I didn't know a dog could get Hepatitis?

      My Lab did take Denamarin and Ursodiol at one time and he did well on them. Did you give the Atopica on an empty stomach? You may want to try giving her a little food first. I believe vomiting is a side effect of this drug if given on an empty stomach. She most likely needs this drug to help with the inflammation of the liver.
      Hopefully, others will chime in that have more experience.

      Only good thoughts for your girl.

      I had to wear gloves and put capsule in the freezer. I gave it with food at night, and she vomited the next am The drug warning days not to give to dogs with liver disease. It’s scary.

      I answered your other thread. Vomitting at first is not unusual and we learned a month to introduce the drug was not out of the norm, with some vomitting. We were backwards and Oban handled it well right away but built up some kind of intolerance over the short time he was on it and by the third summer THEN I had to chill it. Not freeze it solid, just chill so it would not dissolve till it got out of his stomach but somewhere in his gut.
