Btw she is doing fantastic! Just finished her amox, still on lactulose and vet wants her to start on a milk thistle or sam-e since her liver is only 1/4 of the size it is supposed to be. Help! please
First, welcome to YorkieTalk; sorry your Morkie had a shunt, and am SO happy to hear she is doing well! Many of us are dealing with liver disease in our furbabies, and most post in the section "Yorkie Health and Diet" and some in "Sick and Injured".

You can find the supplements you mentioned (Denosyl and Marin, plus another Vetri-dmg which is good) at much cheaper than the vets. There is another recommended supplement hepato support from somewhere else (can't remember).

Two of the members very knowledgeable about liver disease, diet and support are Ellie May, and Ladymom, and many others can help as well.
I'm sure they will be advising you soon.
