Milk Thistle?


Recommended Posts

I've seen milk thistle mentioned here to help with liver stuff...Ace has had some bilirubin showing up in her urine...not enough to really concern our vet but he did mention that it could mean her liver isn't terribly happy. Thought I'd give this milk thistle a try...but I don't know what it is...is it a pill or a liquid? Where do I get it and how much should she get a day? She weighs 60 lbs.

You can get it any health food store. They have pill and liquid. If you get the liquid, make sure it is alcohol free. My girl is 60lbs and I give her one capsule (1 - 175 mg opened on her food) at dinner time. As I have been told, the liver regenerates at night. So it is best at dinner or before bed. Someone had told me do 5 days on, 2 days off.

My vet told me to give George Milk Thistle (after the Valerian Root she also told me to give him caused one of his liver enzymes to go nuts!!! Her bad--she feels just terrible about it, but did she do the follow up blood work for free? Oh no...) to "repair" his liver.

 

I'm giving him one capsule in each meal. I'm lucky--anything in the bowl, he eats!
