Did your dog’s last blood work show that her liver was having problems? Is your dog 8-10 years old? Elevated blood markers for liver function are common in aging dogs. The liver is literally the sewage treatment plant of the body. This work eventually takes its toll and the aging liver shows signs of damage in routine blood work. Relax. This damage can be reversed with milk thistle. Liver cells can heal and even regenerate with proper supplementation.
What Does the Liver Do?
The liver is important for so many bodily needs. But one of its most important jobs is detoxifying everything that enters the body. Food, yes, all foods including wholesome, organic foods, medications, supplements, and everything else your dog eats produces toxins that need to be neutralized and rendered safe for elimination through the kidneys or feces (poop). The wear and tear of the years protecting your dog eventually shows up in routine blood test. But this damage can be reversed.
