How do you prevent liver disease in dogs?

ANSWER

Take your dog to the vet for yearly exams and vaccinations. Make sure your vet is aware of any drugs or supplements your pet takes. Be mindful of what you feed your dog. Fatty foods can hurt the liver. And don't let your dog roam free in areas where there may be poisonous plants or insects.
