Steve Marsden Hepatic Disease 2 parts

Integrative Approach to Canine and Feline Hepatic Disease 

Presented by Steve Marsden DVM ND MSOM Lac. Dipl.CH CVA AHG


A measure of the frustration many veterinarians have with liver disease is the speed with which holistic and herbal supplements were adopted to treat it. Even so, many of these supplements, including SAMe, milk thistle and its extracts, and bile salts like Ursodiol, are still hit-and-miss in their efficacy. This talk will focus on readily available and safe herbal formulas that can be used alone or in combination with these standard treatments to achieve consistent results in managing liver disease, with or without the use of supplements.

This 2 part seminar will transform the way you think about treating liver disease, even if you have never used herbs before. Dr Marsden explains the underlying pathophysiology of liver disease and why specific formulas work.
