How to use the medicine
The suspension is thoroughly shaken before use. Then, with the help of a syringe, the required amount of medicine is counted out and mixed with the feed. For 1 kg of body weight should be 0.1 ml of suspension. If for some reason the cat refuses to feed, then the drug must be given forcefully with a syringe. For this, the pet should be fixed, open the jaw with your fingers and pour in the medicine. Give the suspension 2 times a day.
Suspension can be given to a cat forcibly
Treatment with tablets is carried out according to the same scheme. Before use, the drug must be crushed and mixed with a small amount of boiled water. Then pour into the feed or give forcefully with a disposable syringe without a needle, after fixing the cat and opening her jaw. The first method is easier. 1 tablet is designed for 10 kg of weight, so this release form is intended for large animals.

Reviews on the effectiveness of treatment
When we treated the cat with acute pancreatitis, the veterinarian said that the liver should be treated as well. Comprehensive treatment is always more effective. The cat was prescribed a gastroprotector for the treatment and prevention of diseases of the liver and gall bladder "Hepatolux." This medicine is in the form of a suspension. The composition is very good: methionine, various herbs (artichoke, milk thistle), glycyrrhizic acid salt, royal jelly milk extract, L-arginine. I gave her this drug twice a day in the morning and in the evening after a meal, 0.3 ml per 3 kg of cat's weight. I will say that the cat snorted and did not feel much pleasure from its use. And so I "fed" her two weeks with Hepatolux. From the sidelines, I noticed that the cat began to itch more. Apparently she has some kind of individual intolerance to some component. As the saying goes, "it must - it means it is necessary." I hope the treatment helped her, the veterinarian said that she needed it for the liver, as it removes all toxins from the body well. But I did not like the allergy, as a reaction to Hepatolux. If your pet has liver problems, then I advise you to look at the veterinary medicine Hepatolux, read about it, consult a veterinarian. Or maybe he will help your pet.Tatyana Varlamova
This review is about cat owners. My Maroussia, a three-year-old Siberian girl, was picked up from the street a couple of years ago. The kitten, apparently, was starving a lot, was eating whatever it was, and as a result, it acquired problems with the pancreas, and then with the liver. In this connection, we restore organs with regular courses of Pakreatin and Essentiale. This year we went to another doctor for the vaccine, and she advised us of Hepatolux for cats from Pchelodar. Literally, about 2 weeks before going to the veterinary clinic, Marusya's appetite decreased, which never happened to my cat even after an intestinal operation. A blood test indicated a slight stagnation of bile. After Hepatolux, appetite improved. The cat began to eat well again in the second week of the course. Additional tests have not yet been taken, since we do not have acute pathological processes, and the chronicle is treated for a long time, as a rule. Nevertheless, I plan to prevent my cat with this drug once every six months.Clear_View

The dose of the medicine and the course of therapy should be established only by a specialist, therefore, before giving the animal the drug, it is important to visit the veterinarian for a comprehensive examination.
