As such, milk thistle is very effective in treating dogs with liver problems and related diseases, such as:
Chronic inflammatory liver disorders (e.g. hepatitis)
Liver tumors or cancer
Skin problems secondary to liver disease
Because of the powerful antioxidant properties of the silymarin compounds, milk thistle is an ideal herb for detoxification. In particular, dogs who have been on allopathic medications, dewormers , chemotherapy, vaccinations, and heartworm medications can benefit from milk thistle supplementation. It can also be given to dogs who are recovering from parvovirus.
