My pup has had a hard time with her liver values being too high, and extreme reactions to vaccines and meds since she was about a year old, and now she is 5. With a lot of effort we got her liver values down to the 500s (still too high with normal being a quarter of that, but better than the 900 she had). We did this by moving to a home-cooked non-processed diet and denamarin. Now suddenly, we found a lump near her right armpit, and aspiration shows that it is likely a soft-tissue tumor. They want to surgically remove it and then test for malignancy.
Anyone ever tried getting non-invasive scans such as ultrasound and X-ray before going the surgery route? We don't want to subject her immune system and liver to unnecessary burden.
