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.
Denosyl saved my dogs life. My Sheltie is epileptic and the meds for his seizures damaged his liver. He was a very sick dog but my Vet suggested Denosyl and Marin and within a week I noticed major improvement. In a months time his liver fuction is back to normal and he feels great! I highly recommend this product.
Denosyl 225mg Tablets by Phyllis from Trussville, Alabama09/13/2011
I am so thankful for Entirely Pets. My dog had her gallbladder removed and had to start using Denosyl daily. Two different area vets wanted $80-$90 for this same product. When I found out I could order this from Entirely Pets, I have been very satisfied since my first order. They were efficient, cost effective and quick to send it through the mail. I would recommend Entirely Pets to anyone who wants great service and reasonable prices for their products.

Rejuvenates you best buddy by Hootenanny01/13/2012
My pal had three bouts of pancreatitis and elevated liver readings that were off the chart. Even though it's difficult to get my sweetie to have an empty stomach (which is needed to take this medicine), it's been a life saver. Thank you, Denosyl.
Wonderful Lifesaving Product by Underthemattress from Northwestern US04/15/2012
Our 13 yr. old female mini schnauzer has been into emergency vet 4 times now for pancreatitis related issues. Since starting Denosyl and Marin, her liver values have greatly improved and no more tummy issues. Highly recommend and we will in all probability keep her on this for the rest of her life.
