NHV Milk Thistle Helps 8-Year Old Poodle Cope With Seizures

NHV Milk Thistle Helps 8-Year Old Poodle Cope With Seizures

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 in 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 liver disease

In a nutshell, 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 a 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, autoimmune 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.

    I have 7 year old male lab/great pyrenees mix who has suffered with seizures and allergies most of his life. We also have his sister who has no health issues. Our vet has run tests on him several times with no real conclusions. We have him on grain free food and he takes Kepra 3 times a day for the seizures and prednisone every other day for the allergies. He has been seizure free for 18 mos but the allergies are continuous. I am wondering if any of your products would be beneficial for him. I hate that he has to continuously be on meds. I appreciate any help, advice that you could offer.

      Hi Sandy, thank you for reaching out to us. After consulting with our in-house vet, Dr. Amanda, we would recommend a few things to help your boy. First, we suggest you revisit his diet, for allergies, and we can help with our personalized nutrition plan ( As for supplements to help with the allergies as well, we suggest Stimmune and Alge-Ex. Stimmune soothes food allergies, skin allergies (dermatitis), and infection. Alge-Ex helps the body naturally control histamine and immune response activity. Please feel free to reach out to us in case you have any questions!
