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.
