Milk thistle can help heal and even regenerate liver cells with proper supplementation.

How Milk Thistle Can Help Your Dog’s Aging Liver

January 10, 2017

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.

Supplements That Reverse Liver Damage

Milk thistle has been shown to be a fantastic liver savior. It reduces the damage to liver cells and can, actually improve liver function and allow the regrowth of liver cells. Yes, the liver is the only organ in the body that can regenerate itself. Milk thistle is safe, natural and affordable, unlike the other veterinary liver medications.

We highly recommend that you add milk thistle supplementation to your older dog’s nutritional program.
