STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Chronic active hepatitis (CAH) is a condition in which there is persistent and progressive inflammation of the liver. Eventually, the inflammatory process results in the disease known as cirrhosis of the liver
  • Most cases of CAH have no known cause. The condition is most often seen in middle-aged or older female dogs, and certain breeds are predisposed
  • Symptoms include lack of appetite, vomiting, weight loss, jaundice, and fluid build-up in the abdomen
  • Treatment of CAH focuses on treating the underlying cause if it is known, decreasing liver inflammation, and slowing or stopping the progression of the disease
