What is Milk Thistle? Milk Thistle is a natural supplement, well-known for helping with liver disease in dogs, dogs and humans alike, and is gentle enough for long-term use. The active components in Milk Thistle are called silymarins. These constituents:
  • Help protect against free radical damage
  • Aid in stabilizing liver membranes
  • Help support liver recovery
  • Guard against toxins binding to the liver
  • Milk Thistle also supports the production of new liver cells, helping to replace damaged cells. As anti-oxidants, silymarins are even more effective than vitamin E.
Milk Thistle provides beneficial support when being treated with:
  • Antibiotics
  • Corticosteroids
  • Chemotherapy agents
  • Conventional heartworm medication

Note: Some Milk Thistle sold in health stores is alcohol-based and should not be given to dogs. Pet Wellbeing Milk Thistle is glycerin-based and safe for dogs.

    As an anti-oxidant, silymarin is even more effective than vitamin E. It also helps support the production of new liver cells. Milk Thistle provides beneficial support when your canine is being treated with:
    - Anti-inflammatories: NSAIDS and steroids
    - Chemotherapy agents
    - Bile acids
    - Immunosuppressants
    - Seizure medication
    - Sulfa antibiotics
    - Daily heartworm medications

    Healthy Nutrition Tip for Your Dog's Liver:
    Processed foods stress your dog’s liver as it attempts to detoxify the preservatives and other additives like artificial flavors and colors. Go natural! Avoid grains and focus on healthy proteins from free-range, grass-fed animals. Green foods will help detoxify your canine's liver, such as those in Pet Wellbeing's SPARK. Expect your dog’s moods to be lifted as well! SPARK is a veterinarian-formulated, daily nutritional supplement for dogs of all ages. Remember! Milk Thistle must be glycerin-based to be safe for dogs. Do not give your dog any supplements that contain alcohol.

    A healthy liver is important because it detoxifies any chemicals or pesticides our dogs may be exposed to, toxins in food they scavenge, and chemical prescription drugs. The liver performs dozens of different functions in the body, including clearing out toxins. Yet liver disease (including cirrhosis) is one of the most common health problems in older canines. It can damage all functions of the dog’s liver, with very harmful health effects. Even canines without liver disease may need support to metabolize and excrete prescription medications, which are often damaging to the liver.

    Milk Thistle is an excellent way to support the liver in dealing with the toxic load of medications. Milk Thistle should be administered to every dog taking liver-taxing medications and especially if the liver is damaged or diseased. Milk Thistle is not contraindicated with conventional medications and is gentle enough for long-term use.

    About Pet Wellbeing

    Pet Wellbeing was founded in 2001. Our goal? To provide pet owners with options and good information. When faced with decisions about the best health strategies for our beloved pets, we all want what is best for our furry companions. We want the assurance that we will make our pets feel better, not worse; additionally, we don't want to throw away our money on something that doesn't work.

    To fulfill our vision, our on-staff, holistic veterinarians develop products using data from multiple streams: time-honored, traditional uses of herbs and foods, current scientific research, hands-on, clinical experience between veterinarians and their dog or cat patients.

    Our products and formulas are continually under review. Formulas are analyzed individually, in turn. During a review, our Board of Advisors team integrates information in a "think tank" fashion, looking at the latest studies & research, and real-life results of the dogs and cats within their veterinary practices. Ideas are shared and improvements are discussed and tested. This is our commitment to putting leading-edge science and concrete results into our products.

    Amazing product! It literally resolved the kidney disease in our senior Yorkie and saved our other senior pup, Frankie! Frankie has severe mitral valve disease, was on Max doses of cardiac medications at levels toxic to his kidneys. He had several trips to icu before we tried this product! Within 1 week, we saw a dramatic improvement and few weeks were able to decrease his cardiac medication doses!

    Kitty is feeling better, thank you!
    Our cat has been on this product for 5 weeks, no sign of asthma or breathing problems since coming off steroids (from vet). He is tolerating it well and likes the taste when mixed in with his soft food. So far so good, we will be ordering again. His energy and personality have returned.

    Hi my girl was diagnosed with adrenal tumors last Jan. 2020 She's 15. I started giving her both Life Gold and Adrenal care. Didn't think she would still be here with us. It's over a year now and she is. She's eating, drinking and all bodily functions are working perfectly. Not in any pain, I'm grateful for this product I would recommend these to everyone.

    Thank you for saving my baby.
    My 13 years old Yorkshire has pancreatitis since 2 years and he had flare up every 2 weeks and now he is perfect. He hasn’t been sick since 3 months now. The last time he was sick I taught of having him putting to sleep because he was so sick. Thank you Pet Wellbeing you save my old boy.

    My little dog Timothy was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. He was having a really hard time breathing and he had no energy. After just 3 days he was breathing easier. It is not a cure but just making his life easier makes me feel like he at least has a better quality of life.
