Denamarin is a nutritional supplement used to improve your pet's liver function by increasing liver glutathione levels. Glutathione is the liver's major "detoxifying" agent. Denamarin contains SAMe, a potent antioxidant that also helps protect liver cells from cell death and may help cell repair and regeneration. Denamarin also has Silybin, the most active part of an extract from milk thistle, which acts as an antioxidant and stimulates the flow of bile through the liver to aid in the digestion and absorption of nutrients from your pet's diet. Silybin also helps with liver cell regeneration and may enhance levels of glutathione. The tablets come in three different strengths: for cats and small dogs, for medium dogs, and for large dogs.
For small dogs and cats 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.
