Denamarin: Liver Support for Pets

 
Filed under Dr. Dym's Vet Blog
From one of the most trustworthy nutritional supplement companies on the market, Denamarin is an excellent multifaceted supplements that can significantly improve liver function by increasing liver glutathione levels. The duel main ingredients of SAMe and Silybin (active ingredient of milk thistle) are potent antioxidants that protect liver cells and may even promote liver cell regeneration in dogs with active liver disease.

The product also can help with digestion and absorption of nutrients from the diet as well. There are no negative side effects seen with this product, and on the positive side, pets usually become more active and playful as liver function improves when taking this product.

Increased activity levels are often a noticeable benefit when pets are given Denamarin

It is certainly safe to use long term and even as a preventative in those pets who are also taking medications that may be toxic to the liver such as prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as Rimadyl, Deramaxx, Previcox or Metacam. The only client concerns I have seen with this product revolve around the cost. However, because of the combination of wonderful synergistic liver supportive ingredients in this one product, it is certainly highly worth it in my opinion and experience.

    Is there a generic product available for Denamarin due to the high cost?

    You can try SAMe from health food store along with milk thistle as well which would be equivalent to buying the denamarin, however SAMe can get expensive as well.

    What about the generic version of the pill? S-Adenosyl 100MG. I assume there are no problems with the generic? It does not seem to be available on petmeds yet, but I have found it on other websites.

    The generic version should be fine for liver support.
