I literally stumbled across NHV pet products while searching for something to help our dog with her elevated liver enzymes. Heidi had been on [**pharmaceutical name removed] off & on for years but we never saw any significant improvement. After her reaction to her rabies shot in May 2015 and all the meds she had been placed on to save her, her ALP was off the charts (>993) & [**pharmaceutical name removed] was not helping bring the number down at all. Since immune-mediated Thrombocytopenia will apparently resurface from time to time, Heidi gets placed back on [**pharmaceutical name removed] (used in place of steroids) to get her body to stop attacking itself & build her platelet count back up. These flair ups also wreak havoc on her liver & [**pharmaceutical name removed] was not helping. I had read about milk thistle & dandelion root tea and was trying to educate myself further when I noticed an ad for NHV products. Upon investigating the website further, I had some questions. I decided to "chat" with an agent (Robbie) & became so impressed with the customer service as well as the willingness to investigate what meds Heidi was on to be sure their would not be any problems that I placed my order that night! We decided to go with the Liver Detox kit of Milk Thistle & Tumeric & was not sure what to expect as Heidi's next recheck for her liver was in just 16 days. Her numbers prior to placing her on NHV & while on [**pharmaceutical name removed] for a Thrombocytopenia flair up as well as [**pharmaceutical name removed] at the end of September were ALT 169, ALP >993; at the end of October while weaning off [**pharmaceutical name removed] (1 pill every other day for 1 month) & still on [**pharmaceutical name removed] her numbers were ALT 269, ALP >993; on November 28th after ending her 3 day wean off of [**pharmaceutical name removed] on November 14th & starting her NHV supplements of Milk Thistle & Tumeric (instead of [**pharmaceutical name removed]) on November 12th (just 16 days) Heidi's numbers were ALT 141, ALP >993. Or vet said to keep doing what we were doing as her highest concern had been the ALT & it was almost down to high normal & we would recheck in January. We had the recheck 1/9/17 & her numbers are now ALT 88; ALP 802!! Granted the ALP is still very high but they have been over 700 since September 2013. She has had a negative Cushing's test, a liver ultrasound (during her hospitalization with Thrombocytopenia) and they could not find anything. We will not recheck her liver for 3 months but unfortunately we are back on [**pharmaceutical name removed] again for a flair up of Thrombocytopenia so I am now looking to NHV for immune support. I included more information here than some might need but I wanted to be sure since the [**pharmaceutical name removed] would be driving up Heidi's liver enzymes, I was able to show how great the products work. Not only that, they ARE NOT alcohol based supplements!
The customer support has helped me so much as my other little dog is able to take these same supplements with all of his other medications for heart murmur & trachea collapse. They were very honest to let me know which he could & could not take with his prescribed medications, that meant the world to me! *
