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.

Tolly is 12 years old and has liver damage from a lifetime on phenobarbital for seizures. A year ago his ALT number shot up to over 500, 100 is high normal. After a few months on the Denosyl the numbers started to drop. He is now maintaining almost within normal range. He's playing like a kitten.

Truly a lifesaver! by RCH from Overland Park, KS01/25/2011
Without a doubt, Denosyl has contributed to keeping my dog alive!! Due to a liver shunt, my dog experienced some liver damage. After surgery, my vet recommended that I give her Denosyl on a daily basis from now on. In follow-up tests of her liver, there are no health issues found. I believe this product has added to her playfulness and zest for life. The 90 mg pill is small enough to easily insert in her mouth and easily swallowed. I am a true believer of Denosyl!
love it by Dianne03/01/2009
works great and is a great deal thank you.
Seems to work good by Rhonda06/20/2008
My geriatric cat (15 years old) had lost a lot of weight and looked very sickly. She wouldn't groom herself either. The vet found she was great on her kidneys and thyroid, but had abnormal liver enzymes in some recent blood work. We did not want to go through the expense and pain to the cat of additional tests, so my vet recommended Denosyl. He said that it would help the liver to regenerate. We haven't had additional blood work done yet, but it's been a month and she looks and feels 100% better. She even grooms herself now, so I think it's really worked well.
Keeps my pet healthy by CestMoi from Chicago, IL10/21/2011
Phantom was diagnosed with liver disease back in 2008. The combination of denosyl and another prescription drug has kept him in good health all this time! He's still with us today.
A Life-Saver by Richard01/23/2009
This stuff really works!!! After spending a small fortune at our money-grubbing vet, denosyl was recommended to stabalize our 17 yr old cat's liver problems. He was at death's door, lost a lot of weight, vomiting, quit grooming etc. After a year, he has put on weight and almost back to his old self, albeit he is an "old man", but now great for his age. This stuff works and we have saved lots of money by not going back to vet over and over again for expensive tests etc. The bottom-line, our cat is old and Denosyl helps him lead a normal life for his age related liver problems. We will keep on giving him a daily dose as he has steadily improved so much over the past years daily Denosyl!!!
Great price! by hflash from Alabaster, AL01/17/2012
My dog has to take denosyl for a health condition (prescribed by Vet.). I found the product on entirelypets.com at less than half the price I pay for it at the Vet. With the economy in the shape it's in, I am forced to find the cheapest products I can. The product was received in a timely manner, without damage. Will definitely recommend entirelypets.com and continue using them myself.
