Optimal treatment for your dog requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your dog does not rapidly improve. Administer all prescribed medication as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your dog and follow all dietary recommendations.

Because HE can be reversible, the prognosis for affected animals with chronic HE is good.

If liver function is not stable and is, in fact, deteriorating, the prognosis for controlling HE is guarded.
