Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • Where can I obtain Milk Thistle for our dog, and what is your recommended daily dose? I found several quantities at our local pharmacy, but didn't know if either of these were the correct dose or even if it was the same supplement for animals.

    I recommend that you talk to your veterinarian before starting any supplements for your pet. The dosage for them will depend on your individual pet’s size, as well as the condition that is being treated. Some supplements can also make certain conditions worse depending on the situation.
