As the majority of you know, the liver can be described as an astounding organ. It has numerous vital functions such as: Acting as a massive filter to eliminate blood-borne toxins. Synthesising and distributing proteins for body’s use. Storing sugar as glycogen.

This amazing organ needs a constant blood flow so it can do these jobs effectively. If there’s a liver shunt present, it means your pet’s blood flow has been compromised.

There are two main liver shunts and they are:

• Extra-hepatic (outside your pet’s liver).

• Intra-hepatic (inside his liver). Although such shunts are generally problems faced by dogs, cats may also have them sometimes.
