There are two types of shunt, rears it's ugly head, early on in life. The other is aquired shunt.

I know of MVD dogs that it was identified as pups. And then I know of dogs that never showed any outward signs of shunt and discovered through a blood test, revealing abnormal bile levels at the age of 3.
