My 2 1/2 year old male Jack Russell has just been diagnosed as having a liver shunt. I have been told that he needs surgery to ligate the shunt. Is there anyone out there who has had to have this surgery done and what was the outcome? He had surgery last week to remove bladder stones but has had none of the neurological problems that can occur with a liver shunt. I'd appreciate any advice or thoughts.
