Are you concerned about dog liver health?

Diminished liver function happens to almost all animals as they age.

Liver Support can help with poor liver numbers on blood work.

In fact, it is also helpful after anesthesia for detox.

What Is Liver Support Formula?

Liver Support Formula is derived directly from Bu Gan Tang, a formula based on Chinese medicine.

In fact, it has been in use for over 250 years.

Veterinarians with knowledge of Eastern medicine and TCVM who also practice Western medicine will administer Liver Support for the following symptoms:

  • Weight loss despite good appetite and normal stools
  • Occasional muscle spasms
  • Tight or bunched muscles or neck spasm
  • Occasional irritability, territoriality, mild fear aggression
  • Noise sensitivity, timidity, separation anxiety
  • Fine, powdery dander; low-grade itch
  • Occasional forelimb weakness

Liver Support Formula is chiefly a dog formula, given that dogs are more prone to Liver Blood deficiency.

What Is In Liver Support Formula And Why?

First, Chinese quince fruit is recommended for stiffness and spasms of the sinews, muscle stiffness and spasms, and muscle atrophy. Certainly, this is one of the best herbs for abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea and nausea.

Second, ophiopogon tuber relaxes occasional muscle spasms, benefits digestive health, respiratory health and promotes healthy blood sugar levels.

Next, Chinese licorice root and rhizome provide anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and antacid effects.

Also, Chinese licorice root combined with white peony root relieves muscular spasms.

Veterinarians will prescribe white peony root for abdominal pain, muscle spasms, and astringent effects on sweating, as well as antibacterial, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory purposes.

Additionally, sichuan lovage rhizome can help with pain and swelling of the lower urinary tract, for prevention of kidney stones, and to increase the flow of urine when urinary tract infections or fluid retention is present.

Furthermore, dong quai root may help manage hypertension, joint pain, ulcers, anemia, and constipation; and in the prevention and treatment of allergies.

Prepared Rehmannia root is often given for treatment of diabetes, anemia, fever, osteoporosis, and allergies.

Lastly, sour jujube seed can help improve sleep, and relieve fatigue and anxiety.


Dosage varies depending on the animal’s sensitivity to the herbs, condition classification as acute or chronic, and animal compliance with formula administration.

Consult a veterinary professional for final dosage selection.


Do not administer this formula during pregnancy.

If your pet is reacting adversely to the current dosage, stop administration for 1 or 2 days, then resume at a lower dosage.

Observe for adverse or desired effects at this low dosage and increase gradually if necessary.
