The hard chalky nature of these tablets makes them a problem to feed to my dog. The flavor must be OK because he’ll take them in his mouth but as soon as he crunches it, he spits it out because it’s very hard and dry. I have to put it in a pill pocket, defeating the purpose of giving on an empty stomach for best absorption.
Denamarin was recommended by our vet to protect our Goldendoodle’s liver. We tried, and she tried but she couldn’t chew it. Too hard to bite. She couldn’t swallow it. Too big to swallow whole. She couldn’t stand the taste when we broke it up. Is this the only form available.
Finding this to be yet another overpriced supplement- readily available to humans- and the for human consumption products have better labeling of what's in it! I consider Nutramax to be gouging the "for pets" market. I will be returning the unopened bottle for refund
I had hoped these chewables would be an easy way to administer Denamarin to our dog. But the tablets are way too big and even when we break them, he won't eat them. He eat's everything but he won't touch these. I don't recommend them. Now I need to buys the pills.
I called the manufacturer, because my dog, a huge chowhound, wouldn’t eat them. He acts like other chewables, flea/tick, heartworm, Cosequin etc are treats. I was pretty surprised but the manufacturer said it has a bitter taste, so that explains it. They do offer another formulation, called Denamarin pro, I believe, that uses a more concentrated active ingredient (reducing the bitterness) but it is only available from vets and is way more expensive. I had put this on autoship, thinking it would be a great alternative to the pills, but unfortunately, my dog said no.
I have to coat them in a bit of peanut butter or she won’t eat them. And she’ll usually eat anything. They’re supposed to be taken on an empty stomach, at least an hour before food, so I hope this isn’t negating some of their benefit. Also, my dog is about 65 lbs, so her dose is 2.5 tablets per day, meaning she goes through them fast.
My vet recommended this for our poodle mix. She won’t eat it by itself but if I put it in a pill pocket she wolfs it right down. We have not had a retest to see if it works on her liver values. The one thing I don’t like about it is that the dog has to take it one hour before a meal, so you have to plan ahead. This is really inconvenient, especially if you’re not home an hour before feeding time; the dog is then starving and has to wait longer to eat. I wish there were something you could give with meals - maybe make it a time release med and not a chew? From the reviews it sounds like most dogs hate the taste anyway. We will continue it at our vet’s advice until I find a better alternative - and there may not be one.
I wish the Advanced version of the denamarin was more readily available. The regular tablet is huge and not very yummy (at least according to my 20lb dog). The Advanced tablet is not only smaller but my dog only needs to take 1/2 of it to get the same benefit.
Unfortunately my dog refused to eat them. I was hoping she would like them as I have the regular pills that I have to disguise in a small amount of wet food. Was hoping the chewable would work.
My fur baby was sick from a tick bite which brought on a high fever and elevated liver enzyme levels. Caught everything in time and the vet recommended Nutramax Denamarin which helped and was amazing she is staying on them her numbers are normal. Easy to give and and easy for her to chew. Just follow the directions. She will be using them always. Hopefully other babies will benefit from this. I also think this is a good supplement to take. Ask your vet about these.
