Liver Tonic for dogs and cats is the premier hepatic remedy for animals formulated using USDA ORGANIC HERBS and USP ORGANIC VEGETABLE GLYCERIN with NO added ingredients like chemical flavorings. Formulated by a certified Master Herbalist to support proper liver elimination* in canines and felines that are suffering with a sluggish, toxic or diseased liver. Since the liver is the primary detoxifying organ, it often suffers the most due to our toxic environment. Luckily, the liver is very resilient and can usually repair itself with some help. Liver Tonic has been formulated to have a tonifying and gentle detoxifying effect on this very important organ. Safe and gentle enough to use for the life of your dog or cat.

If you wish to support your pet's liver for a serious issue like liver failure, we recommend that you take a look at our entire Core Liver Disease Package as these supplements work together synergistically.

What are the Symptoms of a Stressed Liver in Dogs and Cats?

Symptoms that we often see in our clients' pets include skin conditions, digestive issues and behavioral changes. These imbalances occur because of the many roles the liver plays in an animal's health. Diagnostic testing by a veterinarian can show a liver that is struggling indicated by high liver enzymes Alanine transaminase (ALT) and/or Aspartate transaminase (AST). This occurs because damaged liver cells leak higher than normal amounts of certain chemicals, including liver enzymes, into the bloodstream, which can result in elevated liver enzymes on blood tests. Often after using our Liver Support formula the levels of these enzymes will come back down into the normal range. Recognizing and removing contributing factors such as unnecessary vaccinations, flea and tick products and liver damaging medications (when possible) greatly benefit this process.

What are the Roles of the Liver in our Pet's Health?

1). The liver detoxifies poisonous substances for elimination by the kidneys. When this isn't done properly these toxins can remain is circulation with the body trying to eliminate them through the skin (resulting in skin conditions), storing them in adipose (fat) tissue (resulting in fatty lipomas) and eventually the kidneys will suffer to some degree.

2). By secreting bile, the liver plays an important role in the digestion of lipids. If the liver is sluggish it will not secrete proper amounts of bile resulting in the incomplete digestion of fats and poor elimination of excess cholesterol in stool.

3). The liver helps to maintain normal blood glucose levels and synthesize blood proteins that are important to proper blood clotting and blood volume.

4). The liver also stores vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, D, E, K, and B12, and the minerals iron and copper in order to provide a constant supply of these essential substances to the tissues of the body.

What to Look for in a Superior Liver Tonic for Dogs and Cats

Organic Herbs

Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or how they've been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.

Natural Ingredients

Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.

Alcohol-Free Tincture with ORGANIC Vegetable Glycerin for Animals

Our blend is formulated by a special process using low heat and organic vegetable glycerin. Tinctures are concentrated forms of a plant's constituents that are readily absorbed and utilized by your pet's body. Because your pet may not like the taste of alcohol, we use vegetable glycerin which gives our tinctures a sweet taste your animals will like. Vegetable glycerin is a carbohydrate but is metabolized differently than sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is also an efficient menstruum which extracts valuable constituents from plants and makes them readily available to the body. In addition, we take the extra time and effort to use a low heat process that extracts many more constituents than just soaking in glycerin alone as is done by most other herbal companies. And, of course, the use of organic vegetable glycerin ensures your pet avoids genetically modified ingredients and herbicides in their natural medicine.

Uses only Human Grade Ingredients

Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".

Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients

We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

A proprietary formula containing the following organic herbs in a 1:5 ratio of herb to menstruum:

Milk Thistle Seed (Silybum marianum), Dandelion Root & Leaf (Taraxacum officinale), Burdock Root (Arctium lappa), Nettle Leaf (Urtica Dioica), Alfalfa Leaf (Medicago sativa) and Red Clover (Trifolium pratense).

Other Ingredients: ORGANIC vegetable Glycerin, Distilled water. Alcohol free!

6 - 10 lbs 1/4 ml
11 - 15 lbs 1/2 ml
16 - 20 lbs 3/4 ml

For serious acute conditions - It is recommended to provide three dosages per day. When your animal is doing better you may try reducing dosages to twice daily and see how they do with that schedule.

For chronic conditions - You may provide two to three times daily. If your animal does not respond to two dosages they will need three until they show improvement and then you may reduce to two dosages daily and see how they do.

Long-term use: After the first two - four weeks when your animal's condition stabilizes or improves begin to use on a schedule of 5 days on and 2 days off as long as your animal's condition allows this schedule without deterioration.

To apply directly in mouth just pull out lower lip at back of mouth and squirt in desired amount. Don't tilt head back and squirt down throat or your pet may breathe some in. Wipe off dropper before placing back in container. If your animal coughs afterwards it is a sign they are breathing some in and it may be best to place in food in the future.

How long does it usually take for this herbal remedy to work?
Well, that is a difficult question to answer because each animal and his/her situation is unique. Sometimes benefits are seen immediately within a day or two and other times it may be a couple of weeks. We would say that you should see some sort of improvement within three to four weeks. If you don’t see improvement please contact us in case we can make other suggestions - perhaps there is a more appropriate remedy etc. Remember, these are not pharmaceutical drugs that have a dramatic affect on the body. What we are trying to accomplish with our herbal remedies and other supplements is to increase the health of weak organs/systems and this can take a little time to accomplish in some cases. Also, please keep in mind that diet and lifestyle play a huge role in the health of your animal(s). If you continue to feed a poor-quality kibble diet or provide repetitive booster vaccinations or use flea/tick chemical products, these will work against what we are trying to accomplish and make it more difficult to improve the health of your dog or cat.

What if my animal is not responding as hoped?
Then you may increase the dosage by 50% and see how that works. Dosage can then be reduced at a later date. If they still do not respond as hoped then please do not just give up, instead contact us by email so we can consider your animal's condition and make further suggestions. Our goal is to succeed and we will help you to the best of our abilities.

What if I have a large dog or I am on a budget?
We understand that providing a large animal with herbal remedies and natural supplements can be a financial burden to some. We would suggest to provide what is within your budget and see how that works. For example, if you have a 100 lb dog that would require 5 mls two to three times daily, figure what is within your budget and try that. It may only be 1 ml or 2 mls two times per day. However, in our experience this is preferable to avoiding the remedy entirely.

Do these herbal remedies have any contraindications?
A contraindication suggests that a particular remedy should not be used in certain health conditions or along with certain medications. If any are present they will be indicated at the bottom of this page under Contraindications.

Can I use this herbal remedy along with my pet’s medication(s)?
Generally, the answer to this question is “yes” with some caveats. As mentioned previously, if any contraindications are present they will be indicated at the bottom of this page. In addition, keep in mind that our herbal remedies often duplicate the actions of medications. For example, our heart tonic will help to dilate blood vessels and lower blood pressure mimicking the action of certain drugs used for heart failure or high blood pressure. If this is the case, then this should be discussed with your veterinarian as the dosage of the medication may need to be lowered or may even be eliminated entirely. This must be done working in coordination with your veterinarian - please do not take it upon yourself to remove your pet’s medications. If using chemotherapy drugs please discuss this with your vet as well.

What if my vet is not receptive to using natural supplements or herbal remedies?
Well, this is a fairly common occurrence unfortunately. The decision will have to be yours on how to handle this. Try discussing with your vet how important it is to you to try a more natural approach. If this doesn’t work and they are unreceptive then you have only two choices: do it their way or find a veterinarian that you can work with to better the health of your dog or cat. We know what we’d do!

We recommend you purchase enough for at least 2 - 4 weeks to get an idea if this remedy will work for your animal. Use the chart below as a guide.

While searching the web I came across this great company. My dog's recent blood test showed elevated liver enzymes and I was very concerned at what could be causing this issue. I spoke to a very helpful woman who recommended a couple of products. This has worked wonderfully as the most recent tests showed levels back in the healthy range. I very much appreciate all the help and the selection of natural products.
