Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Question about Liver Disease

This may be a possibility to consider and
if pathology was done it will tell if this was


Due to their relatively bland appearance, many
cystadenocarcinomas of the biliary tract of the
liver ( a malignant tumor of the liver) may be
misinterpreted as liver cysts. However, these
tumors will continue to grow if not completely
excised, and eventually will replace the balance
of the liver tissue. Surgical removal, if left
unattended, may not be achievable in late stages.

Liver failure is preceded by not wanting to eat,
and small, often loose stools, which may be associated
as well with gastric ulcers. In true failure, animals
become jaundiced, and blood tests at this time will
show that all liver enzymes are highly elevated, with
bilirubin being the one that proves that the liver is failing.

With kindest regards,

Bruce Williams, DVM
