Supports liver function in case of chronic liver failure.
Hepatic insufficiency in cats is a group of diseases that limit the functionality of the liver, which intervenes, among many other functions, in the synthesis of lipoproteins and glycogen, in digestion, as a filter and immunomodulator; it also conjugates taurine and arginine, bile acids for the formation of bile salts.
There are as many functions as there are challenges, both primary and secondary diseases that can impair its functionality. The liver’s reserve function and regenerative capacity are high, so that in an acute process, the probability of recovery is high. In cases of chronic disease, treatment will be focused on minimizing and limiting the degenerative process, in addition, to control the foreseeable anemia and/or malnutrition.
The symptomatology present in cats with liver disease does not make it easy to identify, the more advanced the disease, the clearer it becomes. In case of suspicion of liver disease, a wide variety of urine and blood tests, biopsies, diagnostic imaging, will be necessary to identify and diagnose the disease and its causes.
HI can be primary (feline idiopathic hepatic lipidosis) or secondary to Diabetes mellitus, pancreas, IBD….
Among the most common diseases that lead to chronic liver failure, we find hepatic lipidosis, which is common when the cat stops eating or is subject to very rapid weight loss or anemia. In these cases, large quantities of fatty acids are mobilized to the liver where they are converted to triglycerides. where they are converted to triglycerides, which together with malnutrition can lead to a deficiency of proteins necessary for the synthesis of lipoproteins responsible for getting rid of excess triglycerides. This leads to accumulation in the organ and rendering it useless.
As a result of liver failure, we may encounter serious secondary diseases such as hepatic encephalopathy, which is widely reported and requires further treatment. There is ample information on this disease, which requires adequate nutritional management with protein restriction, high quality proteins that limit the production of nitrogenous residues, with the production of nitrogenous residues, with an adequate volume of carbohydrates that allow a good caloric intake.
In liver diseases there are important changes in the intestinal flora that influence the development of the disease, the ability to modulate the flora, intestinal permeability and immune modulation are considered important elements in achieving an adequate quality of life. The pharmacological treatment necessary in the management of the disease is also a factor that can alter the balance and that the use of probiotics can help to improve the quality of life.
