What is Ursodiol?

Ursodiol is an oral medication containing bile acid that treats liver and gallbladder disease, and prevents and dissolves gallstones. It is also used in the treatment of chronic liver problems. Ursodiol can restore healthy liver function in cats and dogs by promoting regeneration of healthy liver tissue. Ursodiol requires a prescription from your veterinarian and is sold per capsule or tablet.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

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

How does Ursodiol work?

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.

Cautions:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has any medical conditions or is pregnant or lactating. Consult with your veterinarian before giving any other prescription or over-the-counter medications to your pet.
