    In humans the liver can repair itself really well and amazingly quick, I don't know about dogs but I can't see how that should be any different... There must be a way, I'm very positive that if his liver is the only issue then he's got a great chance of recovering.

    I've read about cases where humans have lost more than 50% of their liver cells but has recovered basically completely if there hasn't been any complications. This was long ago even, in my teens when I got morphine I read about liver damage...

    I hope you'll get good news when you see the vet<3
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.

    I think you must find out how much damage there is to Diesel's liver, and what the cause is. Was it from the kidney problems, or from his medications? There may be a good chance that this can be reversed, depending on the extent of the liver damage. Will u be talking to the vet soon?

    I've been thinking of you guys since this happened and will continue to pray for Diesel to pull through.

Catheter feeding is recommended for highly unstable patients, whileenteric feeding (feeding directly into the intestines) in small amounts is recommended for otherwise stable patients. A normal protein diet with supplemental vitamins E and K is advised.

    Everything I am researching says there is treatment, I feel like if he looked better to you, and is getting fluids, etc. Its not time to let go yet, unless is he suffering, and in extreme pain. It says the liver can regenerate itself. I believe he can pull through this, but they have to keep treating him.
    Thank you.
    The last thing I ll ever do is let go, it's to soon.
    I really don't mind spending every penny I v got to fix him. There's anger in me as I am going through stuff.
    Injection on Monday. Really strong dog.
    5 days later he's an infection
    Monday - at vets and antibiotic's, catheter in and drained him.
    Tuesday - at vets as not right, 4 injections.
    Wednesday- at the vets ( I carried him in ) I was told then he's very sick and the next few hrs are crucial.
    Thursday - very sick, and was told we ll call you
    Friday- as above.

    Now it's go at 5 pm to discuss his future

    I have no experience with liver issues, but I am still praying very hard for you all. I hope the talk at 5 is to discuss treatment to help him recover

    I would be frustrated too. And I would give every single penny I have plus more to save my dog. We are all pulling for him. If he's not in pain, and he looked better when you saw him last, tell them to continue treatments. He's pulled through 2 days that the vet said he wouldn't make it through, he can recover, it just takes time, and meds, fluids, etc. Dogs livers are similar to ours, and can repair themselves.... he is your dog, and you call the shots, they cannot tell you otherwise. If you tell them to continue treatments, they must. I wish there was a second vet in that office, or his condition was stable enough to move him to another. We are all praying for Diesel. I also believe it is too soon - we're all here for you. Be with him as much as you can, your scent, and presence is strong healing for dogs.

    YOU are healing him by being there. Stay strong, he is strong. He will make it, he's already proven all wrong.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Still sending so much prayer for Diesel,, @jimmyjj We all love him and with so much prayer, he has a lot of help going for him. If his kidneys are improved, that is a big part of the battle. As has been stated-the liver can regenerate, and only you will know when and IF it is time to let go. We are not there, and we all still have so much hope that Diesel can make it! We are praying for him, and for you, Jimmy.Speak to your baby-tell him to stay strong, and not to give up-you are there for him.

    I don't know if you have saw fb.
    Had the vets at 5, they let us right in. Diesel got up and the nurse said its the first he's moved all day, he fell into my arms and I was stroking him, the nurse said is he ok? I said I think he's resting, he passed in my arms.
    It was all to much for him.

    Thank you all for your prayers over the last week

    Tears are falling for you & your family, Jimmy.

    Diesel fought as long as he could as did y'all.

    He is my hero and my heart hurts for his loss.

    RIP brave Diesel, you inspire me with your will
    to live and the ferocity of your fight, rest now.

    Thank You, GOD, for giving us Heaven.
