I'm sorry to hear that your little one has been diagnosed with liver disease!

I agree that pellets and veggies will have to be the largest component of your little one's diet; however, converting him to pellets won't happen overnight. It's important to gradually decrease the seed he's getting and increase the pellets, but be sure to watch him carefully to ensure he eventually starts eating the pellets. You should be able to tell by his droppings, which will become softer and lighter in colour.

The recipe cookbooks look pretty good, and you can certainly make lots of those things to supplement his diet!

Milk thistle has been shown to be very effective in treating liver disease in animals (including people!) as it is a natural detoxifier. You can find milk thistle extract in health food stores or online (no alcohol added, just the extract) and add a little to his water. Be sure to only do this after he has finished with the Baytril so it doesn't interfere with the effectiveness of the medicine.

Please keep us posted on how your little one is doing! :fingerx:
