The liver is a real powerhouse within the body – responsible for breaking down and detoxifying harmful agents and activating other substances essential for metabolism. It also stores nutrients and is important in immunity. However its work can be impaired as a result of inflammation; long-term drug administration such as phenobarbitone and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS); toxins from fungi or contaminated food as well as from immune system injury. This veterinary herbal supplement is for use at times when the liver needs extra support or is under stress. It supports the liver and can be used alongside conventional medication prescribed by your vet.
