ADMINISTRATION AS A NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT
Because the tablet must be kept intact to prevent destruction by moisture, administration range is based on the nearest whole-tablet. The chart below is provided as a guide for administration
For optimal absorption, tablets should be given on an empty stomach, at least one hour before feeding, as the presence of food decreases the absorption of S-Adenosylmethionine. For those owners who have difficulty administering tablets to their pets, Denamarin tablet(s) may be disguised in a small bite of food. Studies have shown that, in many cases, tablets or capsules given as a “dry swallow” do not pass into the stomach in cats but may become lodged in the esophagus. It is recommended for pet owners to administer 3-6 cc of water immediately following any tablet administration to speed passage of the tablet into the stomach. If the pet is to receive more than one tablet daily, the total number of tablets may be divided between morning and evening for ease of administration. For example, a daily administration of three tablets could be divided into two tablets in the morning and one tablet in the evening.
*The number of tablets can be gradually reduced or increased at any time depending on the pet’s needs. Many pets are maintained long-term on every-other-day or every-third-day administration.
Denamarin can be used in conjunction with Marin® to provide additional silybin levels and the benefits of vitamin E and zinc supplementation. If Marin is used in conjunction with Denamarin, the two products should be administered 12 hours apart for best response.
