Description of Denosyl

Denosyl is available in the form of a chewable and a non-chewable tablet. It is supplied in different strengths such as Denosyl 90mg, Denosyl 225mg and Denosyl 425mg.

Indications & Dosage of Denosyl
Denosyl is indicated to increase glutathione levels in a pet’s body. It is not intended to cure liver disease in dogs, cats or other animals.
S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe), the active ingredient in the nutritional supplement, is produced naturally by the liver from the amino acid Methionine. When your pet’s liver function is compromised due to any medical condition, it affects the production of glutathione thereby leading to reduced levels of Glutathione in the pet’s body. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that improves liver function and also fights deadly toxins present in the pet’s body. Besides improving liver function, Denosyl is also known to aid cell repair and protect liver cells from cell death.
The dosage of Denosyl depends on individual needs of the pet. Your veterinarian will recommend the right amount of Denosyl after evaluating your pet’s response and medical condition. The dosage of Denosyl also depends on your pet’s weight.
You need to administer Denosyl to your pet at least one hour before feeding it as the absorption of the nutritional supplement is reduced if given along with a meal. Denosyl may get stuck into your pet’s throat, so give your pet some water after administering it. Your veterinarian may recommend Denosyl for your pet only for a short period of time.
Side Effects & Interactions of Denosyl
Denosyl is a very safe nutritional supplement for pets. There are hardly any side effects reported. However, the possibility of side effects in some pets cannot be completely ruled out.
