NHV Milk Thistle helps 8-year old poodle cope with seizures

Posted July 22, 2017

Thank you Beth for your lovely review.

For the last two years, I have used NHV Milk Thistle as part of a restricted diet and supplement package for my now 8 year old miniature poodle, Nina, for mild idiopathic seizures. In addition to controlling food additives using a vet formula kibble, the milk thistle minimizes toxins her liver and kidneys.  This has helped minimize the frequency and severity of her symptoms. The liquid formula is easy to dose and administer.

Milk Thistle is a great herbal extract to give to dogs and cats facing health issues of various kinds. Our lead vet. Dr. Hillary Cook explains why it is great even if your pet is not directly dealing with a liver disease. 

In a nut shell, the liver is a large filter for toxins. With this in mind, I add milk thistle to aid the clearing of the liver for any patient of mine that is chronically on a western medication. Every drug is processed by the liver, and can be a burden to the liver, causing elevated liver enzymes and decreasing liver function (such as medications to treat seizures). “

What other NHV remedies can you give to a pet facing seizures?

1. Natures Immuno

This is blend of medicinal mushrooms that works holistically to support the liver, the heart and the respiratory system. The Agaricus mushrooms are particularly great for stress, auto immune conditions and heart health.

2. Turmeric

Turmeric is general anti-inflammatory support and works wonderfully at promoting heart health. Seizures and seizure meds can make the heart work harder and Turmeric can provide some useful support.
