Would heartgard or k9 advantix make liver enzymes be a little high? I gave Chance her heartgard on Feb. 20th and then k9 advantix on the 27th of Feb.
She got blood work done on March 4th and her liver enzymes were a little high. I don't know if I should give her this stuff or not. I love this site, it is great to have someone to ask question about Chance, and know there are other yorkie crazy people out there. lol!!!!!

Some meds can and some can't.
Some companies will tell you if their drug can do this in the package insert.
I'm not sure about these two but it had been almost a week, so the Heartgard would've been processed already. Not sure on the Advantix because it stays on the skin. You may want to redue the blood panel in a few weeks without giving the Advantix but anytime a Yorkie has high liver enzymes, I think it is time for a bile acids test. This can be skewed by drugs though, so if you do it, maybe hold off on the Advantix for a few weeks before and the heartgard for a couple weeks before?

Did you get a copy of her bloodwork? How high were her liver enzymes?
I would definitely get a bile acids test as Eliie May suggested. All Yorkies should have one anyway because liver disease is so high in the breed..
