Milk Thistle for Dogs: The Best Natural Treatment for Liver Disease?

Milk thistle for dogs is becoming a popular choice for pet owners wanting a natural treatment for liver diseases. In this article we are going to cover the causes of liver disease in dogs and why milk thistle for dogs is a viable and effective treatment for liver disease.

Certain breeds of dog are at a higher risk of developing liver disease, to find out which breeds see: “9 Dog Breeds at Greater Risk of Developing Liver Disease

Whilst breed can play a factor in the development of liver disease, there are also a number of other factors that can play a role in the development of canine liver diseases.

What Causes Liver Disease

The liver is a complex organ performing over 500 functions in the body! As such, there are a lot of opportunities for things to go wrong.

The main reasons as to why liver disease can occur are:

  • Viruses – Some viruses can damage liver cells
  • Bacteria – Like viruses, bacterial infections can cause damage to liver cells, resulting in inflammation
  • Drugs and Toxins – The liver is a major processing unit of compounds that enter the body. Drugs and toxins are broken down by the liver, but this can sometimes leave toxic chemicals that are able to damage liver cells
  • Free Radicals – Reactive compounds that can damage liver cells. Antioxidants work by neutralising these dangerous molecules
  • Inflammation – Inflammation usually occurs as a result of one of the above, but physical damage or injury can also lead to inflammation of the liver. As inflammation progresses, it can cause disease. Often, this is simply referred to as ‘chronic hepatitis’.

How is Milk Thistle for Dogs Helpful?

People are starting to use milk thistle for dogs to treat liver disease. But why? Milk thistle extract contains a compound called silybin, which is regarded as a powerful tool in the treatment of canine liver disease. Silybin is amongst other things, a powerful free radical scavenger that can neutralise damaging free radicals.

Milk thistle is sold as an extract, usually in tablet form. When given to your dog, silybin, the active component of milk thistle extract, gets to work hunting free radicals.

Silybin has also been shown to stimulate the regeneration of damaged liver cells and increase the level of beneficial liver enzymes.

Why Is Stopping Free Radicals Important?

The most important reason for using milk thistle for dogs is that, as we’ve mentioned, it acts as a powerful liver antioxidant, removing free radicals. But why is it so important to get rid of these free radicals?

Free radicals damage liver cells by tearing away electrons from healthy cells. This leads to inflammation.

Continual inflammation of the liver leads to scarring and as such the liver tries to repair itself, leaving behind scar tissue. This scar tissue reduces the function of the liver, meaning it can’t perform all of its 500+ jobs as well!

Over time, the damage to the liver can be that great that a large percentage of liver has been replaced with scar tissue. This is known as cirrhosis and is a major health problem.

So, is Milk Thistle for Dogs Beneficial?

There is a lot of evidence to suggest that milk thistle for dogs is indeed beneficial, and we think that if your dog is at risk, due to their breed or lifestyle, a little extra help for the liver can go a long way. Of course, if your dog has been diagnosed with liver disease (chronic hepatitis), then it is essential you refer to th advice given to you by your veterinarian.

So vets will however recommend the use of milk thistle-containing compounds known as ‘nutraceuticals’, which are able to help the liver recover, reduce inflammation and prevent further damage. Nutraceuticals have the advantage over pharmaceuticals here, as drugs need to be processed by the liver, which as we mentioned earlier, can put excess strain on the liver and cause even more damage!

  1. do you have any ideas for a Westie with liver disease caused by poison mushrooms? He is 8 yrs old and ate them 3 rimes when he was 3 and 4 yrs old. He now has a yeast infection and just had a biopsy and was diagnosed with Hepatocutaneous which what I have been reading is fatal. He’s been taking milk thistle, Vit D and SamE for over 6 months. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  2. Hi. My labrador has advanced liver disease. I am already giving milk thistle but heard sam-e can also help. Where (other than vet) can I buy this in uk which is reputable?

  3. I may have given my dog liver damage by putting tea tree oil on her paw injury. Vets have given her charcoal and have her on an iv drip for 24 hours. Your article said that milk thistle can help. What’s the best form to administer this: sprinkling capsules in her food? Liquid tinctures? Any other forms?

    Could you please recommend a reputable brand and anything else she might need?

    • Hi Deena, there are a few products you can try, such as Samylin. These products are available in tablets or sachets form and also contain other ingredients to help support liver health.

  4. Thank you so much! I’ll get some today.

  5. Hi James,

    I posted something on another page just to keep the information attached to the subject so others could find it but feel free to answers in one go if it’s easier for you. Also now that it’s not an emergency please feel free to answer when it’s convenient for you.

    Thanks very much for your advice about the liver support supplements. I’ll get some immediately but your article brought up other questions for me.

    It’s getting time for me to give my dog her first flea treatment of the year. I typically only treat her from May to. October or November as I don’t want her to come in contact with a lot of nasty chemicals. Usually we use the pipette treatment- at first it was frontline but we switched to Bob Martin because a pet store in London told us it was gentler. However now I am reading that. Bob Martin’s Spot On treat meant is just as toxic.

    So I am wondering what you can recommend that us both gentle yet effective. I’ve of used shampoos before but only because I wasn’t aware of them.

    Finally, given that I have probably stressed out my dog’s liver with this whole tea tree incident (8 or 9 drops on the hot spot over the course of 12 hours) how long should I wait before trying to apply a flea treatment?

    Many thanks again,

    • Hi Deena

      Did your vet suggest the cause of the hot spots? Perhaps it was the result of a food allergy, which can be more common in dogs than you might think. This article might have some useful information for you.

      As for the flea treatment, there are natural remedies and supplements that you can use (containing garlic extract), but how effective they are is debatable. You may be better off going ahead with one of the more potent pipette treatments, as you can be sure this will remove the fleas quickly. The gentler treatments may take longer to have an effect, which could be responsible for additional irritation of the skin – not what you want at this point in time I imagine! A few days, or a week should be enough time before applying a flea treatment.

      You can find us on facebook here.

      • Thank You James and Yes….If you want a truly healthy pet try to use products that are not poisenous and highly toxic. If you wouldn’t put it in your body or on your spine to be absorbed into the main communication pathway of your body, why do it to them.
        Here are a few products that work quite well.
        diatomaceous earth also can be found at wolf creek ranch and a product called Goodbye Fleaze in most natural pet stores

  6. Hi James,

    We have a fourteen year old Yorkshire terrier that we adopted 3 years ago. He has always checked out healthy with the exception of periodontal disease (had 18 teeth removed). He has recently started wetting the bed in his sleep so we had a blood panel run. There were elevated liver enzymes (299 normal but his was 1400). He had been on Metcam for 9 months so we stopped giving him that and rechecked blood in 2 weeks. It went slightly up rather than down. They then ran a test for Cushing’s which was negative.Next step, we are told, is to have an ultra sound. Should I try milk thistle and if so where do I get it from? Other recommendations that I can talk over with the vet!

    I did start acupuncture for his back pain since I discontinued Metaca,.


    • Yes, this is me commenting on my own comment. I didn’t remember leaving the comment but wanted to report that Buddy is still alive and his liver is fine. I began giving him milk thistle and artemisinin after his ultra sound showed tumors in his liver, kidney and spleen (even though they were benign which was miracle in itself). In April of this year (2015), he stopped eating completely and became very ill. It turned out he had kidney failure and was not expected to live. I immediately changed his diet to homemade, reduced protein food with nutrients and herbs purchased from Paw’s Custom Pet Food. He also began getting subcutaneous fluids everyday. I am happy to report that he eats constantly and is back to his happy, adorable self! The fluids and medicine saved him, as did his new diet and the continuation of herbal remedies such as milk thistle.

  7. Hi James
    First of all you did read it correctly, my name is also James Watts.
    We have a Nine month old dog who the vet thought had a liver shunt as his bile acid reading was 176. No sign of a shunt was found in a CAT scan. N ow, two months later his bile acid level is 73, still quite high but going in the right direction, he is due to have another test in three months to see if the levels are continuing to drop. We are now wondering if he may have eaten something that has caused damage to his liver that is very gradually repairing itself. After reading about Milk Thistle we wondered if it may be beneficial to him. We do not want to cause him further harm.

    Kind regards


    • Hi James, I was slightly confused when I saw who this comment had come from!

      I must admit I am not too familiar with bile acid tests, but perhaps next time you are with your vet, you might want to discuss liver enzyme tests and whether or not going down this route would reveal anything of use.

      Nutrition plays an important role in liver health, and particular additives or substances can, as you mentioned cause damage to the liver.

      Unfortunately there is no miracle cure for liver damage, and the onset of liver disease/ healing of liver damage is a slow process. Norm mentions below having had some success with Hills Prescription Diet L/D which you might be interested to try. I was also definitely recommend using a milk thistle product, which can be picked up fairly cheaply online. These products are hepatoprotective, meaning they protect the liver as opposed to repairing it directly. Although with the help of these products, strain on the liver can be reduced allowing it to heal itself faster and more effectively.

      Please let us know how you get on!

  8. Does Milk Thistle work on liver damaged dogs? Yes, absolutely yes!! But it’s the active ingredients of milk thistle which are Silybin A+B that regenerate liver tissue (found in the product “Marin for dogs” found on eBay, in combination with Lactulose (which stops the transfer of ammonium from the gut to the blood stream), that are the liver saving heroes. Also stop using cheaper commercial dog foods that have toxic preservatives in them. We used an original “Spots Stew” recipe that we found on the web. Certain meats are hard on the liver but chicken and fish are easier. The most complete proteins that don’t have a high ammonium content when digested are in dairy products (yogourt and cottage cheese) as well as in eggs (the whites and the yolk).
    Our dog’s story (very shortened version) – Our dog developed liver problems when he went through the dog food crisis years ago where many dog foods had toxic substances (such as melamine) imported from the third world. Our vet diagnosed him and said he had “end stage liver disease”. Having heard on CNN that milk thistle was shown to have liver regenerative abilities, we asked our vet to order some. He did the research online and the next couple days he phoned and said that milk thistle extract (silybin A+B) had gone “mainstream”. We ordered it, and made up home-made dog food based on Spots Stew (found on the internet). Our dog got slowly better over the next few weeks and continued to improve over the next few months to the point of near perfect health. About 5 years later after great health, he started going downhill again. The vet did an ultrasound and saw there was very little liver left. He prescribed a liver enzyme, “Ursodiol” as well as “Prescription LD” canned dog food and our dog was back to his old bouncy self in 2 days. It has been a year now and our vet calls him a “miracle dog”. Along with the Prescription LD, we give him a heaping tablespoon of yogourt and 1/4 hard boiled egg with each meal for the high quality protein.
    This process has worked for us, and I highly recommend giving it a try. You too may have a “Miracle Dog” that you snatch away from end stage liver disease.

    Good luck,


    • Great story Norm, glad to hear you had such a success with this process!

    • Hey how long did it take for you to notice that the milk thistle is working properly. My dog is in bad shape. She has some type of liver disease but we don’t know the underlying cause. Began giving her milk thistle today but I’m worried it’s too late and does its work on all types of liver disease or just a specific kind. I hope my question makes sense. I’m emotionally exhausted from this situation I’m in

      • First of all, get rid of the “commercial Food”. Spots stew company is sharing this recipe below in the link provided. A few yews ago this internet recipe also included 1/2 cup rolled oats, plus 1/4 cup barley, (both to add bulk to the recipe) to thicken it. Make a bunch of it ahead of time and freeze and unthaw it as needed.
        Next, order “Marin – for dogs of all sizes” from e-Bay, or wherever. Follow the instructions on the back. This is as good as you’ll get, until later stages when you might need a liver enzyme called “Ursodiol” that our dog was missing. Our vet now says that you can hardly see Riley’s liver because it has shrunk so much, but yet Riley is still bouncing across the floor to “attack” us when we come home – far from “end stage liver disease! No promises here, but this worked for us. The improvement in health initially got better slowly — over a few weeks. So don’t expect an immediate huge success. This will take months on this protocol. Good luck!

  9. My 6 year old English Terrier was diagnosed with enlarged liver and faulty heart valves. Left her at the vet for a week and I was told to bring her home cos nothing could be done for her anymore. She was brought home vomiting several times a day, black tarry pooh and just kept to herself. Luckily she was willing to eat. I researched the Internet and found that I should try milk thistle. I gave her milk thistle/dandelion tablets every day for 2 months and now she has fully recovered.

    I guess the Internet and the people who posted their experiences saved her.

  10. I have a miniature poodle that had liver-shunt as a puppy. (Basically the blood by-passes the liver and so develops loads of toxins and slowly kills the dog.) Thankfully we had a good vet who operated on her at 8weeks.
    Ever since I have been very vigilant for any signs of possible toxin build-up. I had a slight scare a year ago but was in a financially tight spot so I researched possible natural remedies. I came across milk thistle and cauliflower as two options I was willing to try. (I avoid synthetic stuff.)
    One dose of cauliflower immediately sorted out the problem and I now add a dose of slightly cooked cauliflower to my dogs food every few months.

    • Hi, I have a 7 month old Biewer Yorkie with suspected Liver Shunt, can you tell me if your miniature Poodle is on any medication since the operation ?

  11. I know a drug that is effective in treating liver disease. It is called GODEX DS. It contains Carnitine Orotate that is superior compared to other hepatoprotectors. I know some doctors using this for their pets.

  12. Hi my 9 y old Golden Retriever was diagnose with liver disease she is becaming very weak she doesnt wanna eat and she hardly want to stand up she most of the time is lay down on the floor she can be on her feet but with difficulty. Can this milk thistle help her to make her eat and get energy and strenght?

    Hi Shanice
    My 3 years old yorkshire terrier got very constipated in July and had seizures. Vet put her on Lactulose, antibiotics and Keppra(an anti seizure med) She is on a low protein diet but is not enjoying her food very much. She is only tiny 2 kg (41b) and had Royal Canine wet and dry kibble.She has a liver shunt and also is very weak. To get her to eat I mash her a little bananna or brocclii in her wet food (which she trys to pick out) I am thinking of home cooking for her but you have to measure the amount of protein they have a day. I belong to the Liver Forum which is based in America (I am in Britain) They will give you lots of help.
    My Lola has to have Lactulose with each meal to stop her getting constipated as this is what causes seizures because the toxins build up in her. They are very good and you will gwt lots of information to help you cope. I hope this helps you

  14. Hi, interested to read about milk thistle for dogs. I have always given it to my two African Grey parrots as a preventative measure. What I have is powder in capsules. How much should I give to my 18 month old rescue mongrel? Her weight is 10.3Kg.

  15. Does milk thistle work on dogs that have a liver tumor or potential problem with the bile duct?

  16. My bichon frise, has just had her bloods done after more illness and her ATL is 850?
    she has been on Segian & Medone tablets, one for her tummy problems and the other for dementia.
    The vet advised me to have her put to sleep? she has good days and bad, ive taken her off all medication except Aktivait. over the last few days she has picked up, but not fully. Ive changed her diet to organic veg gluten free brown rice pasta. ive brought Milk thistle plus capsules,but unsure how much to give her? I know she is old but I feel she has more time left in her! she is eating and wants to go for a walk. she sleeps a lot which I feel is down to old age? Please can you help us? I do not want any invasive procedures. Blood test only.

  17. I have an 11 1/2 year old Maltese. She was diagnosed with liver disease. About two weeks ago she is now picking at her food. She hardly eats her food now. She hardly drinks water. I have been giving her organic chopped meat, ground chicken, turkey. She has been on supplements Livaplex, Silymarin and Hepatrophin by Standard Process along with Chlorophyll for a long time . How much milk thistle would she need and if the liver is badly damaged and would it help her. Also I noticed a grayish, yellow tinge to her stomach.

  19. I have a 6 pound chihuahua that we just found out, has some kidney and liver issues. Interested in milk thistle and other natural remedies. What do you suggest?

  20. As a licensed USA DVM with dual board-certifications as an expert pharmacologist & toxicologist, who has owned many animals and loves to care and promote health of livestock and pets, I understand the frustrating problems with liver diseases and attempts at therapies. Unfortunately, relatively expensive alternative products such as milk thistle have not been scientifically shown to improve most clinical conditions in pets or people; this conclusion is supported and stated by the National Institutes of Health and US Food and Drug Administration, upon their expert reviews of the current scientific literature. Mechanistically, viral hepatitis is best treated or controlled with antiviral drugs and vaccinations in people against hepatitis viruses; while elevated liver enzymes have multiple and usually obscure causes, for which the body’s naturally produced antioxidants (glutathione, mainly) are effective in limiting damage by metabolic free radicals. Use of antioxidant supplements are purported to assist in scavenging oxidative free radicals, which may or may not be the cause of elevated liver enzymes in pets and people. Existing antioxidants are likely as effective and probably safer to use, such as vitamins A, C and E, selenium, etc. One needs to be careful though, not to overdose with fat-soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K) or toxicity may results; also most animals make their own vitamin C, except for people and notably guinea pigs which need daily minimal amounts to prevent deficiency. Pharmaceutical companies and biomedical researchers continue to search for effective medications to help prevent and treat all diseases, and are making progress. As most of you know, US FDA does not usually regulate herbs and natural supplements, so cannot assure their purity, effectiveness or safety – for which they warn users, as do manufacturers. Milk thistle also has produced mutations in-vitro and cancer in livers of rats (NTP studies, 2011), and occasional severe allergic reactions in users (FDA). Just because something is a so-called natural herb does not mean it cannot be harmful or toxic (“all things are toxic, only the dose makes it a poison or a remedy” – Paracelsus). Hepatitis is a serious disease, often caused by viruses or by over-ingestion of something that inherently over-tasks the liver’s ability to catabolize and detoxify it, such as with acetaminophen overdoses where liver toxicity only occurs when glutathione stores are depleted (only so much is made by our bodies every day). While milk thistle may have some possible but minimal relative hepatic benefits (per expert reviews by NIH, FDA and biomedical authorities), other antioxidants and similarly acting products are probably as or more effective, safer, and cheaper to use.

  21. Hi James
    My dog has epilepsy and has been on epiphen tablets for about 8 years and her toxin levels according to my vet are now near 3000 yes 3000, not totally sure of the understanding of facts but was wondering if milk thistle
    would be beneficial as opposed to the petcare liver care liquid she is on at present but is working out expensive and I can purchase milk thistle at a better price. basically will one work as well as the other as due to being a pensioner every little helps. Sorry she is a Chinese crested powder puff and weighs7,1kgs if that is relevant.

    I hav a 6 yr old border collie who last year started collapsing during exercise. He was found to have a problem with messages from the brain not reaching his heart to tell it to beat. He has been managing well on corvental d for 6 months and as he is very fit and active, his life has not changed much. Last week he suddenly started drinking and peeing excessively and was off his food. I took him, witha urine sample, to our vet who discovered bilirubin was off the scale. He had bloods taken and started antibiotics on Monday. He already seemed better and is now eating salmon and rice heartily, drinking and peeing returned to normal, so I hoped for good news today. Bilirubin still off the scale and his blood tests read at 102, they should be 5!! Nels is my life and I am desperate to find help for him as my vet wants to see him next Monday and if his levels haven’t dropped he will be admitted with suspicion of liver cancer. An anaesthetic is quite risky for him due to his heart, but they want to scan and x ray as his liver is enlarged. I am desperately trying to find ways to help him and this is how I found your article on milk thistle. What dose should I think of giving him please?

  23. We have a Siberian husky that is 10 yes old. About five years ago his vet put him on phenobarbital for seizures. After having two seizures. In a month they put him on it. Back in march we noticed bikail which is husky name. He had black crusty places on skin nose around eyes and pads on feet developed hard petrified places that became all of his foot pads. Also started loosing muscle ton. We took him to vet and after several months of steroids antibiotics and pain med we took him back for labs and his gluecose and liver levels where very elevated. So we took him to dermatologist. They say by biopsy and apprehended they think he may have hepatocutaneous. Now they want to do ultrasound to see if liver looks like Swiss cheese. I be changed giving him green mush nac which is some amino acids and other minerals milk thistle I do have turmeric and cell food which is oxygen for flood you drink in eight oz of water. Anyway also started making his food with bone brother sweet potatoes and chicken livers (he is also anemic). He is acting like he feels better and more energy and spots are looking better. Any ideas or thought of what else I can do. I just can’t agree with vet that this is fatal. And if I can help him I am. It is the nurse in me. Please advise

  24. Hello James

    Our beautiful border collie, Chloe whom has been healthy till now has liver disease. Only indications were gold urine and some yellow in the eyes. We thought she had eaten a biscuit she had buried in the backyard. After tests part of her liver is still working but she has high level of bilbirum. The vet didn’t suggest anything and gave her a week or so and bring her back when it gets worse to put her to sleep. Just like that! She is a member of our family and the kids were devastated upon the news. I started my own research and discovered Milk thistle which Chloe is taking each day. Hills prescription diet L/D, vitamin E are reportedly good. Is there anything else we can give Chloe? I am encouraged by some other posts by fellow dog owners that there is hope.

    • I am sorry to hear about Chloe and can empathize. One thing I found that helped immensely for our dog when diagnosed with kidney disease, was to switch to a custom diet. You can also make it yourself but I started getting his food from Paws Custom Pet Food, located in Redmond Washington. It is all natural, whole foods and can be made specifically for your dog’s health issues. You can also buy the nutrients from them and make the food yourself.

      For the kidney disease, it was a low protein diet. When I make it at home, I use 1 lb ground turkey, 1 lb carrots, 1 lb sweet potatoes, 1 lb green beans or peas. The turkey gets baked on a sheet pan with a little water and covered in foil. I steam the vegis and then mix it in my cuisinart. I add the supplements I buy from Paws Custom Pet Food. You might contact Shelly there to find out more.

      Good luck and don’t give up hope. Our little guy lived 2 1/2 more years after they were certain he only had a few weeks. I also did acupuncture which I highly recommend.

      • Thank you for your suggestions. I live in Australia but wish we had Paws custom pet food here. Our only option is Hills Prescription diet l/d from the US. I am looking into a natural diet. I will try out your diet to see how Chloe goes. I am encouraged by your post Stacey and won’t give up hope.

    • Hi our 6 year old doberman has end stage liver failure. we are devastated. Like yourself our vet has said take him home and its a matter of weeks. Hes on a few drugs to make him more comfortable and we have started giving him milk thistle.
      Its hard to understand as he still wants his walks and barks but his stomach is swelling and he hardly eats.
      I know how you are feeling and dont know know where else to go. Part of me thinks its wrong and he will recover but I know he probably wont but just wanted to say I know how u feel and Im sorry

      • I am so sorry to hear about your doberman who is so young. I know how you feel. Stacey’s story sounds so positive and we are going to try the diet. Our kids have been researching the web for alternatives. It is hard for them as our other border collie Daisy who is 14 who had a crucial ligament, has a mammary tumor, and on daily drugs for arthritis has a blood test and shows her liver is still working. They can’t understand why it has happened to Chloe and not Daisy. Chloe has been on Milk thistle each day along with vitamin E there are changes over the last 2 weeks, the yellow color in her eyes is very pale so something is working. Her urine is still yellow but not dark gold.

  25. I would, of course talk with you Vet about any changes to diet. Also, check out this wonderful website:
    Lot’s of great information. One article there worth reading is:

  26. I am a 51 year old female that just found out I have Parkinson’s about a year and half, but I have been having signs of it for years, tremors, depression, body weakness. ECT. I honestly don’t think my doctor was reading the signs because of my gender and age. A few years ago I had my shoulder lock up on me and I was sent to a P.T since x-rays didn’t show any physical damage. My shaking was getting worse and I began falling. Only when my speech became so bad that it brought concern to my dentist was Parkinson’s even considered. He phoned my doctor with his concerns about my shaking and balance problems. By this time I was forgoing shots in the back of my neck for back and neck pain to which once again I was sent to a P.T (although x-rays showed no damage) I was told I had a few spurs which were most likely causing the pain. Here I was feeling like my whole body was falling apart and doctor could not find anything wrong, maybe in was all in my head? My doctor even seemed annoyed with me and things just kept progressing and I just kept it to myself, why bother going through testing and them finding nothing? Well, it was after my second P.T called my doctor about the weakness in my legs and arms, by this time I have developed a gait in my walk and I fell more frequently. Only then did my doctor send me to a specialist and it was found that I had Parkinson’s, and that I have had it for awhile. I think because I was a woman that my signs and symptoms weren’t taken seriously and therefor left untreated for so long,I was taking pramipexole dihydrochloride three times daily, I Was on carbidopa levodopa but only lasted 90 minutes then wore off.I found that none of the current medications worked effective for me.I got tired of using those medication so I decided to apply natural herbs formula that was prescribed to me by my second P.T, i purchase the herbal formula from totalcureherbsfoundation. com, There has been huge progression ever since I start the treatment plan which will last for 15 weeks usage.all the symptoms and sign has begin to disappear .
