Rgeurts has seem good results with Nanook if you have been following her post so I thought i would give it a try.

Yes... Nanooks liver was completely healed and back in the normal range

Our vet and specialist told us there was nothing we could do and at the rate of damage he may live to about 4 yrs. He started the herbal combo on a Monday and the following Friday his liver was normal

Timber is eating very well. She is always hungry now and I think that is a good sign. I have always given Orijen and she is also getting some canned dog food as well as the foods I add to their diet like liver, eggs, veggies, meats, fish etc.

I'm SO glad she is eating again!!

Her skull has been so apparent under her fur because of the muscle loss The bone around her eyes is really apparent and on top of her head. My parents came over and thought that she was looking better so maybe it is coming back a little
Nanook looked like a walking skeleton. It was heartbreaking
His little eyes were so sunken and he had atrophy. His cheeks were hollowed out, his head was pointy due to the loss of muscle around his skull(he looked like a little conehead )... he just looked like death. After just reducing the pred for the last 3 weeks, his head is already filling out. He's looking great
I'm sure Timber will start to fill out again too
