What are Denamarin Tablets?

Denamarin Tablets are a nutritional supplement containing the antioxidant Silybin used to improve your pet's liver function by increasing liver glutathione levels. The tablets come in three different strengths; for cats and small dogs, for medium dogs, or for large dogs.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Supports healthy liver function by raising antioxidant levels
  • Silybin aids digestion and absorption of nutrients from your pet's diet
  • No known side effects

How do Denamarin Tablets work?

Denamarin combines a pure S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe) with silybin to provide a one-two punch to keep your pets liver healthy. Silybin supports the flow of bile through the liver which helps with the digestion and absorption of nutrients from your pet's diet. Silybin also helps to regenerate liver cells and may enhance levels of glutathione, an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from toxins such as free radicals.

Cautions:

Store in a cool dry place.

Brand Name:

Denamarin

Active Ingredient(s):

S-Adenosylmethionine, Silybin A+B

What is the most important thing I should know about Denamarin Tablets?

Denamarin for dogs and cats is a patented nutritional supplement for veterinary use in dogs and cats. Denamarin combines a pure and stabilized S-Adenosylmethionine with Silybin to provide a multi-faceted approach to liver support.

How should Denamarin Tablets be given?

For cats and small dogs up to 12 pounds give 1 tablet of the small size. For medium dogs 13 to 34 pounds give 1 tablet of the medium size. For large dogs 35 to 65 pounds give 1 tablet of the large size. For large dogs 66 to 120 pounds give 2 tablets of the large size, and for large dogs over 120 pounds give 3 tablets of the large size. The tablets should be given on an empty stomach at least one hour before a meal for optimal absorption, typically one hour before feeding in the morning. For owners who find it difficult to administer tablet(s) to their pets, Denamarin may be disguised in a small bite of food. The number of tablets administered may be gradually reduced, or increased, at any time at the recommendation of your veterinarian. Tablets are sensitive to moisture and extreme heat and should not be split or crumbled.

What are the potential side effects of Denamarin Tablets?

There are no known side effects.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Denamarin Tablets?

Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

How to Use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denamarin saved Simon Simon first started having liver problems when he was about two. He had jaundice, wouldn't eat, was really sick. We did ultrasound and a biopsy. There were no cysts and biopsy showed he had a chronic liver illness with an unknown cause. We also found out he had a very small liver. We nearly lost him a couple of times. My vet put him on Denamarin and it really saved his life. We also feed him Science Diet for sensitive stomachs and water it down. Simon will be 11 and is doing great. Denamarin really saved Simon's life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver! My 11-year old Cocker Spaniel has Irritable Bowel Disease and is on WD dog food, Pepcid, and Prednesone daily. A few weeks ago he stopped eating and started throwing up. He lost weight and started going downhill fast. We took him to the emergency vet and they put him on IV and antibiotics and said his liver count was extremely elevated in the thousands. They wanted to do x-rays, sonograms, biopsies, etc. but we couldn't afford it and didn't want to put him through all that at his age. Instead they prescribed Denamarin and sent him home. His recovery was amazing! He gets one pill in the morning an hour before eating. He put all his weight back on and is full of energy. We can't believe this is the same dog who was on death's door 3 weeks ago. The vet charges double the price of PetMeds so I will keep getting my refills online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved her life! Daisy was going downhill with Cushings until we started on Nutramax Denamarin for dogs. We give her a tab in a blob of peanutbutter every morning and her liver numbers have improved and improved and improved each time we go to the vet. Thank goodness for Denamarin

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large Dog Our dog, Toothpick, finally lived up to her name. She is a 13 year old mix who has always been very active but, "Mom" was scolded by the vet because she was overweight on more than 1 occasion. Then, in 2009, she was diagnosed with a tumor and had to have her spleen removed. She recovered but, then was diagnosed with thyroid disease not long afterwards. She initially lost weight after her surgery and then once she was put on thyroid meds, she lost even more weight and became gaunt looking, with protruding bones. However, the vet said her bloodwork looked good so, we let it be. A couple of weeks ago, we decided she was just too thin and went back and insisted on more tests. $900 later, we now know her liver is enlarged and her liver panel came back with really bad numbers. The vet wants to do ultrasounds and biopsy anything they find (another $900) but, even if they find liver disease or cancer, how much do you put a 13 year old dog through, hoping only to prolong the inevitable? The vet put her on the Denamarin and antibiotics and after 3 weeks, she seems to be gaining a small amount of weight. I decided to order more Denamarin from Pet Meds for the price savings. After reading the other reviews, I have more hope than I have had in the last month! Thank you all for sharing your pets' success and stories! I will enjoy what time I have left with her and stop thinking she's going "any minute" now and try to think more positively about it all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! My greyhound had a serious adverse reaction to Doxicycline and nearly died. Her liver values (ALT) were over 10,000. Our vet school treated her for weeks and denamarin was part of the meds that she was given. It worked beautifully and we still give it to her to support her liver. I think this medicine helped to save her life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shasta on the mend It all started with her thowing up bile constantly and a stinky diahrea. Off to the vet - very elevated liver enzymes indicative of an infection - upshot researched SAM-E so she was on that and the antibiotics for three months. then she was fine for about 4 months when she started throwing up bile again. Quickly restarted the SAM-E and now no problems - I expect she will be on it for life. She gets it in the AM before I feed the her. Be sure to give it to you fur friend fasting before and at least an hour after for the absorption to occur properly. And don't take it out of the foil seal until you are ready to give it. SAM-E is hydroscopic and will start to absorb moisture from the air and break down quickly if you do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels better at almost 16... i have always called my dog the Energizer Bunny. I asked a vet once if I should get another dog to calm her down and she replied "you know how sometimes a party doesn't stop 'til that one person shows up. That's your dog." About a year ago, she dropped weight after a bout of a tick borne disease. She's always been trim and energetic but she was losing muscle mass. The blood work was fine up until about a month ago when she wouldn't eat and this dog never passed up table food and she was refusing ham and chicken etc. Get the blood work back, elevated liver enzymes, Xray showed enlarge round liver. After a 3 day stay of IV fluids (to help rid herself of toxins. My idea not the vet's suggestion), a course of antibiotics for both aerobic (oxygen dependent bacteria) and anaerobitic (non-oxygen dependent) bacteria, and the Denamarin. She is eating. HATED the LD diet ( looks terrible and is hard as a rock) likes the Salmon Chicken Blue Wilderness soft food. I also went back to an old favorite of hers: Mother Hubbard Peanut Butter cookies ( the small ones for easier chewing). Vet recommended low protein diet but she won't eat anything but this and the stinky whitefish catfood (low magnesium but still not ideal for the dog). For those of you that are struggling with "I'll eat one bite but not two," my dog was doing that too but don't lose heart. She hasn't vomited in a couple of weeks and her little system on the other end is adjusting (soft stool and some diarrhea) but it's better than that look "Feed me I'm hungry" look and then the turned nose and a "no, thanks." She's in three weeks and barring any episodes, I won't be going back to the vet for another week or two...hope this was helpful...PS. she gained one pound at 31 hoping to get back to 35-40lbs. jo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Drug! Miracle Drug! Our Golden 18 months ago after $3K in tests, was given weeks to live and cancer in his liver. Our vet gave him Denamarin, antibiotics, and protein only diet. He is still with us a doing great! The vet calls him the miracle dog and to change nothing we are doing as his blood work 3 mo ago showed a normal 8 yr old....only his weight is a bit under normal, all else is great. If we ever run out of Denamarin for more then 2 days, we can tell in our dog.....it really works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sick Chihuaha My chihuahua puppy started getting sick around 2 months after i got him. (4 months) He was constantly throwing up, having diarrhea and stopped eating. This would happen at least once every two weeks... vet trip, medicine, then same thing would happen again. The antibiotics would clear it up for a little but it was not the solution. Then i took him in to get "fixed" After the pre op bloodwork i got a phone call that his liver enzymes were high. A specialist appointment was scheduled but he got very sick again before the appointment and had to go in on emergency. He was in the animal hospital with the specialist for almost 2 weeks. An x-ray, 2 ultrasounds, and finally a liver biopsy revealed that he had abnormal blood vessel structure in his liver. The treatment? A strict diet and Denamarin. He takes this 2x a day and if he misses a dose i can definitly tell he doesn't feel well. He is now a year and a half and is doing much better but will take the meds for the rest of his life. This product is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaving! Our cat Alex was prescribed this medication by the vet when we found he struggling with liver failure. He was sluggish, weak, no appetite and had taken to sleeping in his litterbox. We gave as instructed by the vet and he soon got his appetite back in a few days. The followup visits to the vet got better and better on his liver levels until he was functioning normally in a few weeks. I believe this product literally saved our cat's life. It worked fast and did what it was supposed to do to get him to eat so his system could heal. On a side note... all the intense bonding we shared w/Alex while we had to keep him separate from the other cats, prepare his special diet and even "pilling" him made us appreciate him even more... and now he and my boyfriend (who had the task of pilling Alex) are inseparable. LOL. So don't give up hope w/liver conditions. Cats are fairly resilient but medications like this one do wonders!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product for Liver Issues My cat has been on and off of this medication several times since he was diagnosed with mild to moderately elevated liver enzymes (about twice normal). When he goes off of the medication, his liver enzymes become elevated. When he goes back on the medication, his liver enzymes are back to normal. He is now staying on 1 Denamarin Tablet every night, and his liver enzymes have been normal for over 18 months. Even his vet has begun taking SAM-e (one of the ingredients in Denamarin) for his own minor liver concerns. It's a shame that this product is not marketed appropriately for use in humans. Since the pharmaceutical companies can't patent it, they'll never make a multi-billion dollar profit on it. Thus, they'll never try to get it approved for human use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver Our miniature schnauzer became very sick and vomited nearly every time he ate. Took him to the vet and he found that his liver enzymes were off the charts for such a small dog. Took xrays and found that his liver was about the size of my index finger. Gave him 3-4 months to live and put him on Denamarin and LD and it was amazing. He was better in about 2 weeks and it is now 18 months later and we still have him. He is 7 yrs old and runs and plays like a puppy. I would recommend this product to anyone with a dog or cat with liver problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Worked! My cat Brownie has elevated liver enzyme and drinks a lot of water. The doctor suggested the denamrain. After 30 days his liver was checked again and they said the elevation had decreased significantly. So now on to the next 30 days. It is working! We do not know if he will have to take this the rest of his life yet. At any rate at least it is working. It is pricey but worth it for my baby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it Our Vet & the specialist gave our dog 3 months to live. She was only 2 yrs old. Put her on this, LD food with rice, and vitamin E and it is 15 months later and she is active and healthy. Expensive but worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANKYOU for this product My cat's liver enzymes went from 3800 to 724 in six weeks. He's staying on the pill until the enzymes are normal. His cholesterol also went down. I will always be thankful that my veterinarian recommended this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Drug Our 11-year old Shih/Poo mix was suffering from elevated liver enzymes and general liver problems. Not eating, shivering, lethargic, and just not the same guy. After many prayers, Hill's L/D, Vit E and COQ, and a heathly dose of Denamarin, his appetite improved dramatically and he visited the Dog Park (played like a puppy). MIRACLE drug is all I have to say. THANK YOU for saving our dog's life!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The halfway report.... we're halfway there My 15 year old dog doesn't understand that she's an old lady. Once I took her off Hill's food and put her on all natural food she became a new dog - full of energy, soft supple pads, bright eyes - unbelieveable. So when I noticed a change in her behavior I took her to our Vet. Her liver enzymes were waaaaay up. The Vet took her off her Enapril for her heart and put her on Denamarin for 30 days. We're halfway there and she's acting normal again. We're going back to check liver enzxymes in a week. I'll report back when we get those results. Wish I had known about the chewables however:). I notice that the site changes your ratings to all 5's even if you check 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, But worth it. Our dog was sleeping all day, thirsty all the time and very slow moving. Our vet did blood work that showed her liver numbers were elevated. She was placed on Denamarin and within a week she showed a complete turnaround. The cost became very hard to maintain on a fixed income so I had to stop buying her med one month. Within two weeks she went downhill. I rearranged some things got her meds and she is doing so well that I will make sure she never goes without her meds again. She is my little girl after all and her unconditional love, is worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life extenstion Three years ago, our 12 year old male cat Jamie's liver lab results were "off the charts" and the prognosis was less than 3 months to live. I asked the vet if there were any homeopathic remedies available and Denysol was suggested. He was down to less than 71/2 #, and severely jaundiced. Within 6 weeks I began to see signs of more alertness and a big increase in appetite (he is now 10#).. A year ago I switched to Denamarin and he has become as active as he was at age 10.....so basically this has given him 3 more years of life and the way it is going, it looks as though there could be many more. I cannot recommend this product hightly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my Westie! My Westie went in for knee surgery..pre surgery blood work showed liver enzymes off the charts. They did ultra sound to ensure his liver was okay.. it is enlarged, but showed no tumors... He was put on Denamarin after surgery. At 3 month check his liver enzymes were normal! I stopped giving him the denamarin and they went right back up. He just had his second six month blood work and happily his enzyme levels are normal. He will stay on Denamarin for the rest of his life.. there are no side effects and it truely supports liver. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good treatment my dog is 3 years old mixed small breed, her name is gracie and she loves to walk with me but somehow got into some kind of chemical and caused her liver enzimes to go extremly high so my vet put her on denamarin tablet and she is still with me today, but i know if we had not done that she would have died so if we have to use that for a long period of time it is worth it to have my pet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's kept him alive! My mixed breed rescue dog has been on Denamarin for the past 4 years. He was at death's door in 2005 going into liver failure. I have had him eating only Hills LD (liver diet) and taking Denamarin, and Actigall since then. He is my miracle dog! I swear by this product, it is a lifesaver for dogs with liver problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! I have an older dog who started having seizures. My vet has her on seizure meds, but he said the meds had liver side effects so he suggested Denamarin. Plus, after having seizures, my dog would become confused and wouldn't know where she was. My vet said Denamarin would help with that as well. After two weeks, I could see a great improvement. After 3 months, I have a whole new dog! She's alert, aware, and doing great! Her liver count is good and she's happy. Hard to get her to take the pill, but other than that, Denamarin is wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped Liver My 12 yr old Bichon/Poo was on liver meds for 2 years and recently started to go downhill fast. The vet gave us Denamarin to try and 24 hours later, he started to perk up and begin eating. A week later, he was back to normal. We've begun to suppliment Milk Thistle and Vitamin E also, along with his liver meds. New blood test soon to be done, but Denamarin did something to help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! Our 8 lb mixed breed was very sick with liver enzyme numbers in the 3,000's. Denamarin worked after 2 weeks, brought her numbers down to 300. The vet said to keep her on it indefinitely. However, the vet wanted to charge me $96 for same medicine I can get on Petmeds for $29.99. Makes me want to change vets.

My idea not the vet's suggestion), a course of antibiotics for both aerobic (oxygen dependent bacteria) and anaerobitic (non-oxygen dependent) bacteria, and the Denamarin. She is eating. HATED the LD diet ( looks terrible and is hard as a rock) likes the Salmon Chicken Blue Wilderness soft food. I also went back to an old favorite of hers: Mother Hubbard Peanut Butter cookies ( the small ones for easier chewing). Vet recommended low protein diet but she won't eat anything but this and the stinky whitefish catfood (low magnesium but still not ideal for the dog). For those of you that are struggling with "I'll eat one bite but not two," my dog was doing that too but don't lose heart. She hasn't vomited in a couple of weeks and her little system on the other end is adjusting (soft stool and some diarrhea) but it's better than that look "Feed me I'm hungry" look and then the turned nose and a "no, thanks." She's in three weeks and barring any episodes, I won't be going back to the vet for another week or two...hope this was helpful...PS. she gained one pound at 31 hoping to get back to 35-40lbs. jo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Drug! Miracle Drug! Our Golden 18 months ago after $3K in tests, was given weeks to live and cancer in his liver. Our vet gave him Denamarin, antibiotics, and protein only diet. He is still with us a doing great! The vet calls him the miracle dog and to change nothing we are doing as his blood work 3 mo ago showed a normal 8 yr old....only his weight is a bit under normal, all else is great. If we ever run out of Denamarin for more then 2 days, we can tell in our dog.....it really works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sick Chihuaha My chihuahua puppy started getting sick around 2 months after i got him. (4 months) He was constantly throwing up, having diarrhea and stopped eating. This would happen at least once every two weeks... vet trip, medicine, then same thing would happen again. The antibiotics would clear it up for a little but it was not the solution. Then i took him in to get "fixed" After the pre op bloodwork i got a phone call that his liver enzymes were high. A specialist appointment was scheduled but he got very sick again before the appointment and had to go in on emergency. He was in the animal hospital with the specialist for almost 2 weeks. An x-ray, 2 ultrasounds, and finally a liver biopsy revealed that he had abnormal blood vessel structure in his liver. The treatment? A strict diet and Denamarin. He takes this 2x a day and if he misses a dose i can definitly tell he doesn't feel well. He is now a year and a half and is doing much better but will take the meds for the rest of his life. This product is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaving! Our cat Alex was prescribed this medication by the vet when we found he struggling with liver failure. He was sluggish, weak, no appetite and had taken to sleeping in his litterbox. We gave as instructed by the vet and he soon got his appetite back in a few days. The followup visits to the vet got better and better on his liver levels until he was functioning normally in a few weeks. I believe this product literally saved our cat's life. It worked fast and did what it was supposed to do to get him to eat so his system could heal. On a side note... all the intense bonding we shared w/Alex while we had to keep him separate from the other cats, prepare his special diet and even "pilling" him made us appreciate him even more... and now he and my boyfriend (who had the task of pilling Alex) are inseparable. LOL. So don't give up hope w/liver conditions. Cats are fairly resilient but medications like this one do wonders!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product for Liver Issues My cat has been on and off of this medication several times since he was diagnosed with mild to moderately elevated liver enzymes (about twice normal). When he goes off of the medication, his liver enzymes become elevated. When he goes back on the medication, his liver enzymes are back to normal. He is now staying on 1 Denamarin Tablet every night, and his liver enzymes have been normal for over 18 months. Even his vet has begun taking SAM-e (one of the ingredients in Denamarin) for his own minor liver concerns. It's a shame that this product is not marketed appropriately for use in humans. Since the pharmaceutical companies can't patent it, they'll never make a multi-billion dollar profit on it. Thus, they'll never try to get it approved for human use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver Our miniature schnauzer became very sick and vomited nearly every time he ate. Took him to the vet and he found that his liver enzymes were off the charts for such a small dog. Took xrays and found that his liver was about the size of my index finger. Gave him 3-4 months to live and put him on Denamarin and LD and it was amazing. He was better in about 2 weeks and it is now 18 months later and we still have him. He is 7 yrs old and runs and plays like a puppy. I would recommend this product to anyone with a dog or cat with liver problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Worked! My cat Brownie has elevated liver enzyme and drinks a lot of water. The doctor suggested the denamrain. After 30 days his liver was checked again and they said the elevation had decreased significantly. So now on to the next 30 days. It is working! We do not know if he will have to take this the rest of his life yet. At any rate at least it is working. It is pricey but worth it for my baby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it Our Vet & the specialist gave our dog 3 months to live. She was only 2 yrs old. Put her on this, LD food with rice, and vitamin E and it is 15 months later and she is active and healthy. Expensive but worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANKYOU for this product My cat's liver enzymes went from 3800 to 724 in six weeks. He's staying on the pill until the enzymes are normal. His cholesterol also went down. I will always be thankful that my veterinarian recommended this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Drug Our 11-year old Shih/Poo mix was suffering from elevated liver enzymes and general liver problems. Not eating, shivering, lethargic, and just not the same guy. After many prayers, Hill's L/D, Vit E and COQ, and a heathly dose of Denamarin, his appetite improved dramatically and he visited the Dog Park (played like a puppy). MIRACLE drug is all I have to say. THANK YOU for saving our dog's life!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The halfway report.... we're halfway there My 15 year old dog doesn't understand that she's an old lady. Once I took her off Hill's food and put her on all natural food she became a new dog - full of energy, soft supple pads, bright eyes - unbelieveable. So when I noticed a change in her behavior I took her to our Vet. Her liver enzymes were waaaaay up. The Vet took her off her Enapril for her heart and put her on Denamarin for 30 days. We're halfway there and she's acting normal again. We're going back to check liver enzxymes in a week. I'll report back when we get those results. Wish I had known about the chewables however:). I notice that the site changes your ratings to all 5's even if you check 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, But worth it. Our dog was sleeping all day, thirsty all the time and very slow moving. Our vet did blood work that showed her liver numbers were elevated. She was placed on Denamarin and within a week she showed a complete turnaround. The cost became very hard to maintain on a fixed income so I had to stop buying her med one month. Within two weeks she went downhill. I rearranged some things got her meds and she is doing so well that I will make sure she never goes without her meds again. She is my little girl after all and her unconditional love, is worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life extenstion Three years ago, our 12 year old male cat Jamie's liver lab results were "off the charts" and the prognosis was less than 3 months to live. I asked the vet if there were any homeopathic remedies available and Denysol was suggested. He was down to less than 71/2 #, and severely jaundiced. Within 6 weeks I began to see signs of more alertness and a big increase in appetite (he is now 10#).. A year ago I switched to Denamarin and he has become as active as he was at age 10.....so basically this has given him 3 more years of life and the way it is going, it looks as though there could be many more. I cannot recommend this product hightly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my Westie! My Westie went in for knee surgery..pre surgery blood work showed liver enzymes off the charts. They did ultra sound to ensure his liver was okay.. it is enlarged, but showed no tumors... He was put on Denamarin after surgery. At 3 month check his liver enzymes were normal! I stopped giving him the denamarin and they went right back up. He just had his second six month blood work and happily his enzyme levels are normal. He will stay on Denamarin for the rest of his life.. there are no side effects and it truely supports liver. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good treatment my dog is 3 years old mixed small breed, her name is gracie and she loves to walk with me but somehow got into some kind of chemical and caused her liver enzimes to go extremly high so my vet put her on denamarin tablet and she is still with me today, but i know if we had not done that she would have died so if we have to use that for a long period of time it is worth it to have my pet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Life Saver Our 14 year large mixed breed dog has been on Denamarin for almost a year. She was in very bad shape and Denamarin with Hills LD has made a tremendous difference. Without these two products, I don't think we would still have her with us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's kept him alive! My mixed breed rescue dog has been on Denamarin for the past 4 years. He was at death's door in 2005 going into liver failure. I have had him eating only Hills LD (liver diet) and taking Denamarin, and Actigall since then. He is my miracle dog! I swear by this product, it is a lifesaver for dogs with liver problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeping him aive My 16 year old cat suddenly turned yellow one day. After countless tests he was put on Denamarin and has since gained back all of his weight and is not longer yellow but a healthy pink again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I have a 17 1/2 year old shih-tzu that has high liver enzymes. She now has been taking this medication for around 4 months and her liver count has gone down. My vet has been wonderful to prescribe this medicine and would recommend it to anyone who has a dog or cat with liver issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works! I have an older dog who started having seizures. My vet has her on seizure meds, but he said the meds had liver side effects so he suggested Denamarin. Plus, after having seizures, my dog would become confused and wouldn't know where she was. My vet said Denamarin would help with that as well. After two weeks, I could see a great improvement. After 3 months, I have a whole new dog! She's alert, aware, and doing great! Her liver count is good and she's happy. Hard to get her to take the pill, but other than that, Denamarin is wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped Liver My 12 yr old Bichon/Poo was on liver meds for 2 years and recently started to go downhill fast. The vet gave us Denamarin to try and 24 hours later, he started to perk up and begin eating. A week later, he was back to normal. We've begun to suppliment Milk Thistle and Vitamin E also, along with his liver meds. New blood test soon to be done, but Denamarin did something to help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! Our 8 lb mixed breed was very sick with liver enzyme numbers in the 3,000's. Denamarin worked after 2 weeks, brought her numbers down to 300. The vet said to keep her on it indefinitely. However, the vet wanted to charge me $96 for same medicine I can get on Petmeds for $29.99. Makes me want to change vets.
