- have you had a dog with liver disease? my dog is being treated right now for hepatitis but could potentially have something else without biopsy we don't really have a way of knowing. either way I was wondering if anyone has ever dealt with jaundice. what is it? can it be cured? what causes it? I asked my vet but she said she's yellow here's some meds if she doesn't get better....I was so stressed out I barely heard the rest.
