The Role of Your Dog’s Liver
The liver’s role in the body is as a detoxifier, rinsing toxins and harmful substances out of the body through the kidney. But when the liver begins to fail, even to a slight degree, that procedure is inhibited and toxins linger in the body as the system tries to find a solution.
Often, the solution is for the body to attempt to eliminate the toxins through the skin. Sometimes, the system tries to store toxins in fatty tissue, which can result in other complications like fatty lipomas.
And as toxins pile up without proper elimination or efficient alternative, the kidneys eventually suffer as well. This ripple effect is all caused by an improperly functioning liver.
The liver has a role in the digestion of lipids, which are macro biomolecules tasked with dissolving fatty acids, monoglycerides, fat-soluble vitamins, diglycerides, phospholipids, and triglycerides.
The aforementioned fat-soluble vitamins – vitamins A, D, E, and K – are essential nutrients stored in the liver and fatty tissues. This vitamins play critical roles in bodily function, transferring cellular information, activating enzymes, and more.
The vast majority of the fat found in food is in the form of triglycerides, cholesterol, and phospholipids. Dietary fat is required to aid the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamins, which is where proper liver function plays a role. If the liver is not working well, the assimilation of vitamins will be impacted and a profusion of triglycerides, cholesterol, and phospholipids will remain.
The secretion of bile is the vital part of this process for the liver.
The liver aids in safeguarding appropriate blood glucose levels in the body. This is important for the health of organs like the pancreas and gallbladder, plus it promotes overall blood health. The liver synthesizes blood proteins vital to effective clotting and volume.
