No Denamarin (S-Adenosylmethionine/Silybin A+B) is a liver supplement for dogs or cats which works by guarding hepatic cells against destruction. It also helps to promote the revitalization and recovery of damaged cells. Additional benefits include neuroprotective effects which can help boost and protect brain health. S-Adenosylmethionine (commonly abbreviated to SAMe) is a type of molecule that is normally produced naturally in the body. It plays a key role in the health of liver cells. When administered, it works by triggering an increase in the levels of glutathione.
Glutathione is an antioxidant which can help defend the liver from toxins. Generally, animals with decreased liver function problems often have low glutathione levels. Therefore, the use of a supplement such as this one may help to increase the concentration of this antioxidant, thereby protecting the function of the liver. It has even been suggested by leading experts that it can contribute to the regeneration of cells. In order to maximize the support for the liver, SAMe is combined with another active ingredient which also features hepatoprotective benefits.
Silybin is made using an extract obtained from the milk thistle plant known as silymarin. This extract is widely used in medicine and is known to have many health benefits. It is said to work in a variety of ways. A considerable amount of research has been carried out, some of which pointed to benefits including the protection of cells from oxidative stress. It could also increase the synthesis of hepatocyte (important liver cells), thereby contributing to the regeneration of the liver. Together, these 2 ingredients help to provide the support necessary for maintaining the health of the liver in dogs or cats.
Carefully observe your dog or cat at all times, paying special attention to its appetite, movement and general fitness. If you suspect that its health is deteriorating, bring it to the veterinarian immediately.
You must take your pet to the veterinarian before it can start taking this supplement. This is to ensure that it is safe and suitable for your dog or cat. In some cases, alternative forms of treatment may be recommended.
