Elevated liver enzymes after abscess removed

My pug had surgery two years ago for abscess of the liver and pancreas.  Since then she has had elevated liver enzymes which usually are reduced by a maintenance dose of S-Adenosyl 225 mg. per day.  Her count over the last year hasbegun to elevate on this dosage, but when I (by mistake) gave her 225mg TWICE a day, the count went slightly below normal, which pleased the vet.  When I went back on the correct dosage, the liver count went above normal and the partner vet put her on the antibiotic baytril.  We go back to retest in two weeks.  My question:   why not put the dog on an elevated dosage of Sam-E on a daily basis?  Are there long term problems with this?  Two vets--two perceptions.  I need a THIRD opinion.  Thanks.
