has anyone ever had a dog with a liver to small ?

I have 2... my 3 year old Border Collies they are rescues.

I am wondering if anyone knows about this and if they ever had success treating with natural or vet meds.. and Diet..
My 2 go off the food at times and I have to do what ever possible to build back up and their BM is terrible.. it is like water.
The vet says the liver is fully functual but is too small for the body. They take Metronidazole and Amoxisillian daily. I wish we could live a normal life but with the BM like it is I can't take in public cause the Public don't understand when they have a movment and it looks like it does:(

You could try an anti-inflammatory (prescribed or natural)? Maybe the intestines are irritated. My mother used to add yogurt to her dogs food whenever her stools got loose, and it always worked great. I'm sorry I don't have any advice from personal experience, just suggestions to try.

Oh, and has the vet ruled out pancreatitis or food allergies? They can also cause some nasty stool issues, and are quite common.

Yes the vet has ruled all that out These are brother and sister. I raised the litter 6 pups from day 4 2! Others have the same problems. We do think they were inbreed not on purpose. We did try yogurt and probiotics neither seem to help :(. These poor babies.
