The liver participates in a lot of 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 could be compromised.
When liver function is compromised, the exact reason can often be difficult to determine. Supporting the liver, regardless of the reason, is essential to keep it functioning properly. Your veterinarian can advise you on the best way to support your cat's liver. For more information on dog and cat liver health products, please click on the relevant product below.
