Both in humans and animals, the liver has some of the most important functions in the body. It filters the blood, metabolizes drugs and food, detoxifies chemicals, aids in blood clotting, secretes bile, and much more. When the liver becomes damaged it can stop functioning like normal, and potentially develop into liver disease. Damage to the liver in dogs and cats can be caused by a variety of factors like aging, infection, long-term use of certain medications like painkillers, fatty foods, and toxic plants. There are also certain conditions that can cause changes in the liver such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, and Cushing’s syndrome.
Early diagnosis is often the key to successful treatment of liver disease. Once diagnosed by your veterinarian, it may be successfully treated or managed with the use of medications and supplements. Be prepared and ask your veterinarian about the signs and symptoms of liver disease. Among the variety of liver supporting supplements carried with VetRxDirect, S-Adenosyl methionine is becoming the most popular.

Quercetin, licorice root extract, Taurine, B vitamins, Zinc, and vitamin E work together to promote liver regeneration, metabolism, and support the immune system. It may also support normal inflammatory response and help prevent fibrosis. SAMeLQ is also designed for easier dosing, with clover shaped Snap Tablets that can be split into halves or quarters.
