Wish I could help you ... hope and pray your pup will be okay.
Years ago I read a lot about liver shunts on certain AOL dog breed boards ... can't recall the breeds today so I googled breeds prone to shunts ... Shih Tzus, Yorkies, Tibetian Spaniels, and Minature Schnauzers (spelling may be wrong). Also mentioned were Irish Wolfhounds and Labs for a different type of liver shunt. Why don't you see if you can find more information by checking out these breeds where the problem is more prevalent.
