A healthy liver is important for dogs because it detoxifies any chemicals or pesticides they may be exposed to, toxins in food they scavenge, and chemical prescription drugs.
My wonderful Aussie, Kira, started to not eat. It was a battle to get her to eat anything. And she started losing weight... She just kept getting worse and then one night we came across your web site that spoke about liquid milk thistle. So we started using it and slowly but surely she has gotten so healthy that you would not even know she is the same dog.
Advice from Dr. Patricia Jordan, Veterinarian
The liver is essential for health, because it performs dozens of different functions in the body, including clearing out toxins. Yet liver disease (including cirrhosis) is one of the most common health problems in older dogs. It can damage all functions of the dog’s liver, with very harmful effects on their health.
Even dogs without liver disease may need support to detox prescription medications, which are often damaging to the liver. Milk Thistle is an excellent way for the liver to deal with this toxic load of medications., It is not contraindicated to any conventional medication and it is gentle enough for long-term use.
While the Milk Thistle sold in health stores is usually alcohol based and should not be given to dogs. PetWellbeing's Canine Milk Thistle is glycerine-based and safe for dogs.
Milk Thistle should be administered to every dog taking liver taxing medications and especially if the liver is damaged or diseased.
The active ingredients in Canine Milk Thistle are known collectively as silymarin.
- Help maintain the health of your dog’s liver.
- Scavenge for harmful free radicals.
- Help guard against toxins trying to bind to the dog’s liver.
- Support the stability of liver membranes
Milk Thistle provides excellent health support when your dog isn't feeling well, to support his liver and help his recovery. As an anti-oxidant, silymarin is even more effective than vitamin E. It also helps support the production of new liver cells in dogs.
Milk Thistle is a especially useful health support when your dog is being treated with things like:
- anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS) and corticosteroids (Prednisone)
- chemotherapy drugs
- Cyclosporine (Atopica)
- Imuran (Anathioprine)
- Phenobarbital for seizures
- trimethoprim/sulfa antibiotics
- daily heartworm medications
An all natural herbal product, milk thistle is gentle enough for long-term use.
Healthy Tip from Dr. Jan
Processed foods stress your dog’s liver as it attempts to detoxify the preservatives and other chemicals. Go organic! Avoid grains and focus on healthy proteins from free-range grass-fed animals. Green foods will help detoxify your dog’s liver. Expect your dog’s moods to be lifted as well!
