Special SAMe (S-Adenosyl methionine) Supplement For Dogs
200 mg 30 Vegetarian capsules - Formulated For Pets Over 13 Pounds
What is Special SAMe?
Special SAMe (S-Adenosyl methionine) is a powerful antioxidant scientifically proven and widely prescribed for the treatment of osteoarthritis, liver support and detoxification as well as cognitive disorders. It is especially important to use if your pet is taking pain or anti-inflammatory medications which can be harmful to your pet's liver.
Our Special SAMe is manufactured with exceptional care and is third-party tested to guarantee potency and purity. SAMe is extremely sensitive to degradation from air and moisture, which is why the quality of the manufacturing process is so important. For example, our glass bottle prevents leakage of toxins from plastic into the SAMe. These capsules provide 200 mg of SAMe along with vitamins B6, B12, and folate as 5-MTHF in order to provide cofactors for the natural conversions of SAMe. This improves the bioavailabilty, absorption and effectiveness of the product.
Powerful Antioxidant Formula Provides Scientifically Proven Benefits Special SAME is the single most important supplement to use if your dog has elevated liver enzymes. Recommended by veterinarians, scientifically proven to reduce elevated liver enzymes, relieve arthritic pain and support brain health.
Special SAM-e is recommended by veterinarians for arthritis and joint pain treatment because it promotes cellular growth repair and helps to protect the cartilage in the joints. We have seen dogs with hip dysplasia and chronic joint pain improve with Special SAMe when other supplements didn't help.
- Protection and Detoxification for the Liver
The liver is the body’s main organ of detoxification. Special SAMe helps support liver health by supplementing the metabolic activity, helping maintain glutathione levels (which is known to be protective and detoxifying for the liver) and supports cell regeneration.
- Arthritis and Joint Pain Management
Arthritis is a chronic degenerative disease that can cause joint pain which limits your pet's mobility. The pain may cause your dog to have stiffness, difficulty walking up stairs and discomfort getting up and down. Special SAMe can reduce pain and inflammation associated with arthritis by increasing proteoglycan production, a component important for lubricating your pet’s joints. In some studies, SAMe was shown to be as effective as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs with lower toxicity risk. There is much research supporting the use of SAMe for pain management in pets.
- Helps Cognitive Disorders
SAMe is believed to increase the turnover of serotonin and increase levels of dopamine which may help pets (especially seniors) with mental confusion and dementia. Over the years, many clients report that their senior dogs have more energy and an increased bounce in their step after Special SAMe.
Special SAMe Can Benefit:
- Dogs with elevated liver enzymes.
- Dogs with liver disease or liver shunts
- Dogs with cancer (especially liver cancer)
- Dogs with hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and arthritic conditions.
- Senior pets that are depressed, slowing down, or having coordination issues
- Scottish terriers with "Scotty cramps", a condition brought on by low serotonin.
“Our 14 year old dog Davy has to take liver support and we were using the prescription medication Denamarin from our veterinarian but he was getting a very upset tummy and having diarrhea. He is doing much better using the Special SAMe. He is not having the tummy noises and is acting a lot better." - Elaine, CA
