Questions & Answers

Confused re doseage. Does this lid have a ml dropper?
Answer by ChewySep 19, 2017
This lid of this product also serves as a dropper to help facilitate dosage.

Would you explain the purpose of grain alcohol in this product? Wouldn't alcohol be detrimental to a cat with a liver disorder?
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2017
The grain alcohol is used when making the Milk Thistle tincture in order to derive the proper amount of slymarin from the Milk Thistle seeds. The amount of alcohol in the blend is not harmful to the liver. This product has been manufactured and used by holistic veterinarians for over 20 years.

I saw in research and articles, that vets recommend that there should be 80% silymarin. This does not tell the % or mg of silymarin in this product. How much is in it?
Answer by ChewyJun 19, 2017
The analysis can vary from batch to batch, but will contain approximately 7 milligrams of silymarin for every milliliter.

Does the dropper have measuring info on it?
Answer by ChewyDec 19, 2018
The dropper holds up to 1 milliliter, which is 20 drops. Half of the dropper measures to 1⁄2 milliliter, or 10 drops. A ​quarter milliliter is 5 drops.

Alcohol for liver health?

I wish I had read the description more carefully. This is an ALCOHOL extract, 20% ALCOHOL by volume. Not exactly something I want to give for liver health. Will be tossing it out. I wish there was a big warning box for products that contain alcohol. As usual though, Chewy delivers fast and is the best.

She doesn't like the taste

This is a new product to us, so not sure it will be beneficial to Maggie, a pit-mix. She has tumors in her liver, so hoping this will help the liver stay strong for a little while longer.

Great product

My holistic vet has me use this for 10-14 days following heartworm prevention tablet on my dogs to help detox. But use everyday on my 14 year old girl. Works great! Her liver is strong and healthy.

My dog loves it!

I didnt think he’d like the taste or eat it straight from the dropper, but he did. In fact, he tried to take the dropper from me. He gets excited when I pull the bottle out. It is very decently sized for the price. My dog was diagnosed with lymes disease, which can cause serious liver damage, so I thought I would try this, he seems good so far and he greatly enjoys it!

Correlation with improved numbers

I've been using the Liver Defense or the Milk Thistle for a year for a pekingese who showed some elevated LFTs. When she was retested, after about a year, her LFTs were normal. Correlation is not causation, but this is the only thing that changed about her diet or lifestyle, so I will continue to give this to her. FYI, she's a rescue, so we don't know exactly how old she is, but the best guess is around 10.

Improved with Red Cell Aplacia

Ever since I started my 7 lb chihuahua on this product, his red cell aplacia has improved. I don't know if giving him this product was the only reason for improvement, but I give it a thumbs up for overall health.

Quality control??

Why would you sell a liver supplement containing 20%Grain Alcohol.

a must for liver diagnosis...

Not to go really deep into my chihuahua ‘s diagnosis but after doing research regarding an enlarged liver , I found the holistic ingredients advised in this amazing, life saving tonic. My little guy is doing terrific with the 2x a day in his moist food. I also changed his diet from lamb to chicken and bc of that there is less stress on the liver to process the food. I am not claiming I am a vet tech or vet. I am a holistic mommy that makes sure all my 4 footers and 2 footers get the best food and supplements to keep them as healthy as possible.

Not for cats

My vet said this is not for cats but is probably good for dogs so I didn’t give it to my cat and will return it.
