Ursodiol is available by prescription only. Ursodiol is used to treat gall bladder disease and liver disease. Ursodiol works by suppressing cholesterol.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

  • Prevents and dissolves gallstones
  • Treats liver and gallbladder disease and chronic liver problems
  • Restores healthy liver function

How it works

Ursodiol for dogs and cats restores healthy liver function through improving the flow of bile into the gallbladder and improving the flow of bile from the gallbladder into the intestine. It also reduces the amount of cholesterol produced in the liver as well as cholesterol absorbed from food, which helps dissolve and prevent gallstones. In addition, Ursodiol prevents the build-up of toxic bile acids.

Storage:

Should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat.

  • Make sure your pet has plenty of water available.
  • Give the medication with food to help increase absorption.
  • Administer Ursodiol to your pet exactly as instructed by your veterinarian.
