Toxic ingestion

@Dr. Jeff My dog Siren, ingested some type of toxin and her bloodwork is not great. I took her too the vet because she was vomiting most of the evening and into today. I thought she might have a blockage but that is not the case. The vet ran in house bloodwork and her liver numbers are very elevated. Her ALT is over 4000, it should be 120. Her ALP is 516, is was 196 a month ago, her GGT, not sure what that is 17. The vet gave her fluids and an injection of Vit B Complex and Methylcobalamin which he said is a remedy to help detox the liver. If any one has any other suggestions or experienc with a dog that ingested an unknown toxin, please let me know. I am also giving her Nux Vomica for the nausea. Thanks

thanks for responding. Siren seems better today, no vomiting since the afternoon yesterday. Should I still give her more Nux? Should I add Charcoal as well?

Have you been using charcoal?

If she still seems better, perhaps just keep doing what you've been doing.

I was able to get the Livaplex that you suggested, should I give it to her once or twice a day?

1 capsule twice a day is great!

How's she doing?
