Hi Theresa. Thank you for your advice on using Berberine homeopathic remedy for liver issues.

I ran to the health food store which was closed. Not to lose time, I decided to use Milk Thistle tincture which I always keep, even though I always had concerns how pets would react to the alcohol content. If the alcohol is left to dissipate, the remedy would not be potent. Tinctures are the most potent and pure herbal treatments.

So I put a few drops with water into a syringe which would give enough for four hourly applications. I was not too scientific about it. It is a week later and Katchina cat is doing so much better; her coat is improving, she is not crying so much and her stool has normal colour.

She is not vomiting but I have to monitor her volume of food, spaced out to prevent indigestion.

So I gave hourly one cc the first two days and then three times a day and now twice one cc at a time. I did nothing during night time.

When I give her the medicine I make eye contact and she understands. Its a split second of strong med. and it is over.

I am delighted and know I can use hawthorn tinctures, etc. in future on cats and dogs. I use the one from V... in Switzerland. I thought I let you know the good news as well for EC visitors trying to help their pets. This is very affordable and I have used this for myself for many years. Actually, I thought that it might have been too late but it turned out surprisingly well. What a relief!

Namaste, Om

You can give cats milk thistle which is an herb. Its good for pets and people alike with anything to do with the liver. My cat had a reaction to her vaccines and I took her right back to the vet and he did some test and told me he thought the vaccines may have damage her liver. He said take her home and that she may have to be force fed. I started her right away on milk thistle and even thought test showed liver damage she is still here yrs later and healthy. No more vaccines for her though.

Hi, my dog was very week and I took him to the vet who diagnosed him with liver problems. He had blood in his urine. She gave me a preporation which contained milk thistle. Within 24 hours he was completely healed. l have heard that milk thistle is excelllent for humans who have liver problems.

I have a 3 lb yorkie that was diagnosed with LIVER DISEASE. He is 7 years old and has always been healthy up until the past year. In the past year, he has has had chronic bouts of diarrhea and vomiting. His digestive system was so irritated that the walls of the g.i. tract had tripled in size with scar tissue. We had countless visits to the vet and tried various medicines and diets. Nothing seemed to work. The veterinarian said our options were to have part of his liver removed or to have him put down. After reading the posts on liver disease and milk thistle I decided to try it. I quit using all the other medications and I started adding a small amount of MILK THISTLE to his special diet (Hill's K/D Prescription Diet). I used the formula in the postings of 125 MG per 25 lbs of body weight. Basically I give him a small pinch of milk thistle about the half the size of a dime. My husband was skeptical but we were desperate for anything that would make our precious yorkie feel better. His health has improved dramatically. He is back to his perky self. He has no vomiting and no diarrhea. He eats all of his food twice a day whereas before he would go days without eating. We use the Solaray Milk Thistle Extract capsules and open about 20 up at once to create a small bowl of powder so it is handy at meal times. We bought them at a health food store. I hope this post helps someone else!
