Denosyl 16 16
Genetic Liver Dysfunction My adopted beagle had seizure the second day after we brought her home. She was one year old then. We thought it was due to the new environment. Clinic vet prescribe her with only some relaxant medication and vitamins. She continues to have seizure once every few weeks. Till a serious episode in the middle of the night one day made us to bring her to the animal hospital. A thorough check by the vet and after few follow-up check diagnosed her with genetic liver dysfunction and also genetic epilepsy. Her liver reading was far exceeding the normal range. Denosyl had helped to keep her liver at normal range with her seizure medication that is not good for her liver . She is put on long term Denosyl, a pill a day before her l/d diet. She is healthy and active after 2 years now. All of us are happy with this cutie pie at home! 06/01/2013
Best Medicine in the World My 13yr old cat had blood work drawn for her dental and her ALT enzyme was 1965, normal level should be from 10-100. The vet recommended Denosyl and Prednosone for 30 days and to retest her levels. I got the results back today and her ALT is 44-which is astonishing. I was given the prognosis of having to put her down if the pill didn't work, and now we're instructed to give it to her 2x a week for maint. This pill is a miracle!! Lifesaver 09/10/2012
Miracle worker Maddie is my 12 year old bichon. She is my heart. I'm not sure about the technical terminology but one of her liver enzymes has been escalating for years and was way way above normal. It's supposed to be under 100 and her count was over 800. Shortly after giving her this pill that number was cut in half and it continues to go down, I am thrilled. Since the pill has to be given whole, it's kind of hard to give it to her. She hates it... But it is so worth it. I need my girl with me a long time, so she's taking it. It's very effective. 10/19/2011
Denosyl liver med's We use to be able to get this medicine in a small round orange pill. Was able to push down our dogs throat easily. Now they have changed this to a larger thicker oval shaped pill. Our little dog has trouble swallowing it. It says on the bottle not to be split or crumbled. It is too easy for a little dog to choke on it. It is also very difficult when says has to be on a empty stomach a hour before meals. We end up giving in the evening after meals. Getting this medicine from the Vet costs $32.50, the only good thing is PetMeds is only $17.99. But our Vet can at least get the small thin ones where Petmeds only has the long thick ones. 01/18/2010
life saver This drug literally saved my dog's life and has enabled her to continue to live 2 years past being diagnosed with liver failure. She was very sick and it took about 7 days on the denosyl before she improved. Don't give up if you are struggling with watching your dog suffer. It just might be the miracle you are praying for. 10/07/2009

Answer:Thank you for your question. Yes, S-Adenosylmethionine is milk thistle.
I read the answer where it says:
"The ideal situation is 8 - 12 hours after the last meal if possible."
This isn't feasible for a cat; especially one that needs to keep eating at this point. It's also not feasible for my other household cats (withholding food). For this medication to work, what is the MINIMUM amount of time I must wait after a meal prior to giving the pill?
Are there any formulations that do NOT require a waiting period (before or after food)?
Answer:For best results it should be given 1 hour before feeding on an empty stomach.
denosyl - milk thistle
I have been giving my cat denosyl that I got from my vet and also liquid milk thistle. Are they both the same? The milk thistle is liquid and much easier to administer - should I discontinue one of them?
Answer:Denosyl contains S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe) known for protecting liver cells from cell death and may be useful in cell repair and healing. Milk thistle contains silybin which is known for protecting and promoting the growth of liver cells, fighting oxidation (a chemical process that can damage cells), and inhibiting inflammation. Please consult with your veterinarian with any concerns.
