Sending prayers for Becky. I know that some of the maltese rescues have had surgery done on liver shunt dogs so maybe someone from there will chime in to give you some more info about the surgery.
Thanks for clarification Sue-- NY is even better. I thought was Tenn for some reason.

Kandis what kind of shunt did Kirby have ??? intrahepatic??? and dr. Center is at cornell Dr. Tobias is at Tenesse ....the price at Cornell is pretty high also so flight and surgey together and today here we are having a bilzzard and planes are grounded for the day imagine Becky coming back somethung like this flying is not easy now in the winter with a operated dog its risky mother nature is never predictable .... she is right now on protocol for liver neomicyn , lactulose , sam-e , milk thistle , low protein diet we dont see a huge diference in her ...... yes they dont see often but from speaking to her yesterday for 1 hour and 30 minutes she really knew her stuff ... i have to have faith and pray hard !!

Beck, That's so important that you feel comfortable with your vet. We'll keep praying for Becky's full recovery!

Anna- I am pretty sure he called it extra hepatic (?) not positive. But remember we knew nothing about shunt disease or the available treatments at the time I was lost, and the Vet trying to save him. He said it was worse one he had seen and maybe I'm wrong, but IMO that is not saying much because I had told him for many months something was very wrong but that's another story and why I try to go to the experts if possible. It all happened right after his first surgery (repeated seizures and then his BP was really high, vomiting, and more). So sounds like a good sign Becky did well after her CT procedure.

I think NCMR means "North-Central Maltese Rescue". But I could be wrong.
