Nutramax Labs - Denosyl for Dogs 225 mg. - 30 Chewable Tablets
Denosyl has been shown to markedly increase liver glutathione levels, an important compound for liver health formed when SAMe (S-Adenosylmethionine) is metabolized. Denosyl has also been shown to help protect liver cells from cell death and may help cell repair and regeneration.
While best known for supporting the liver in dogs and cats. Denosyl also has a place in supporting brain health! Denosyl could help your best friend live a longer, healthier life. Research is looking into dog aging and associated decreases in levels of SAMe (S-Adenosylmethionine) in cerebrospinal fluid, which surrounds the brain. Denosyl provides SAMe in a stabilized form to help with brain health and act as a neuroprotector.
The new chewable tablets of Denosyl allow dogs to receive SAMe in a tasty treat eliminating the need to "pill" your dog daily. Additionally, the chewable tablets are absorbed more quickly when compared to hard enteric-coated tablets.
Dog Brain Health Products
Just like in people, as pets age mental acuity may diminish. In dogs this may manifest itself through confusion or personality changes often expressed through being less social. Research is looking into dog aging and associated decreases in levels of S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe) in cerebrospinal fluid, which surrounds the brain. Both Denosyl and Denamarin provide SAMe in a stabilized form to help with brain health and act as a neuroprotector. Denamarin also provides a bioavailable form of silybin which supports oxidative balance. The new chewable tablets of Denosyl and Denamarin allow dogs to receive SAMe in a tasty treat, eliminating the need to "pill" the dog daily. Additionally, the chewable tablets allow for quicker uptake of the SAMe and less variability between dogs when compared to enteric-coated tablets. While best known for supporting the liver in dogs and cats both Denamarin and Denosyl also have a place in supporting brain health! If you see any of the above behavior changes in your pet, ask your veterinarian if Denamarin or Denosyl could help your best friend live a longer, healthier life.

Are other brands the equivalent to Denosyl?

Denosyl is the only brand shown to be safe and effective for pets in published US veterinary research studies. Denosyl is a nutritional product produced under manufacturing standards similar to those used by the pharmaceutical industry.
Since S-Adenosylmethionine is made from methionine, should I give my pet methionine?
Administration of methionine is not recommended. Providing high levels of methionine to pets with liver compromise may not increase the production of natural S-Adenosylmethionine and has been shown in some cases to increase liver.
