Denosyl, a nutritional supplement, is the pure and stabilized salt of S-Adenosylmethionine for veterinary use only. It is the only brand researched in medical trials for veterinary use in dogs and cats.
S-Adenosylmethionine is an endogenous molecule synthesized by cells throughout the body and is formed from the amino acid methionine and ATP. It is an essential part of three major chemical pathways in the body.
Denosyl has been shown to increase hepatic glutathione levels in cats and dogs. Glutathione is a potent antioxidants that protects hepatic (liver) cells from toxins. A study found that low liver glutathione concentrations are common in dog and cats with decreased liver function.
For optimal absorption, tablets should be given on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before feeding, as the presence of food decreases the absorption of S-Adenosylmethionine. For those owners who have difficulties administering tablets to their pets, this medication maybe disguised in a small bite of food. Studies have shown that, in many cases, tablets or capsules given as a "dry swallow" do not pass into the stomach in cats, but may become lodged in the esophagus. It is recommended for pet owners to administer 3-6 cc of water immediately following any tablet administration to speed passage of the table into the stomach. Denosyl 9- mg tablets are ideal for cats because of their small size.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place. Keep tablets in original blister pack until used. Tablets are sensitive to moisture and extreme heat and should not be split or crumbled.
What does the liver do?
The liver participates in many activities within the body. It helps the digestion of food through production of bile and helps change digested foods into substances used by the body for energy and growth. The liver also helps process some medications into material(s) that can be used by the body; the liver may assist in eliminating medications from the body once they have had their effect. The liver stores vitamins and minerals and works with sugar (carbohydrates, glucose), fats and proteins. It also helps maintain proper blood clotting and removes many body toxins from the blood. Without proper liver function, the pet's health is compromised.
Because it does so much, the liver may be subject to many things: injury, both direct and indirect, infection, and toxicity. Some of the signs and symptoms of compromised liver function in pets may include: weakness, vomiting, poor appetite, and/or seizures. But if there is mild or early stage liver compromise, the pet can appear normal. If you notice any of these symptoms or your pet is just acting differently, you should contact your veterinarian. Many veterinarians run screening tests for middle aged and older patients during the annual examination to ensure that organ function is normal.
Just less than a year ago our large, 130 lb shepherd mix, had a liver enzyme count that was off the charts. The vet couldn't even measure it. We began giving him Denosyl 425 mg and in 3 months his enzyme count was high but measurable at 710.

Definite Buy by wiffylee from Waterford, MI02/05/2012
I have searched for this medication that is not a prescription, and found it very expensive elsewhere. Not only is it cheaper but Entirely Pets allow you to set up if you need this monthly, every couple of months or however you may need the product. That takes the worry out of having to order it.
A huge difference by KD03/31/2008
Daily pain meds were raising our 14 y.o. Golden Ret mix liver enzymes dangerously, but Denosyl (2/day for 65-70# dog) brought her down from "off the charts" to "almost normal" again. Her overall health is greatly improved. And she takes them easily in a pill pocket, no bitter taste like some meds.
Best price anywhere on Denosyl by Bonnie03/29/2012
My 15 year old Shetland Sheepdog has been on this for more than three years. I've researched multiple websites for the best supplier, but had missed EntirelyPets and was using another company.
Found EntirelyPets to be the best price ever. Delivery was as promised. I have set up a monthly reorder.
Wish they were smaller! by Allie10/27/2011
My dog needs 2 of these every day to help treat his hepatitis and I wish these were smaller and easier to give him since he has to eat them on an empty stomach. On the other hand, this is the only place I've found them at this strength and the price is fair!
GREAT PRODUCT and GREAT PRICE by Marnie04/27/2012
A very good product and it was recommend by my dogs vet. Her blood tests have improved since on the Denosyl.
