If your veterinarian recommends a smaller dose of milk thistle, those dosages are often based on milk thistle concentrated extract. Herbsmith Milk Thistle is the fresh, whole ground seed of milk thistle, and because we use the whole seed, there’s 5x more volume of powder than a concentrated extract. 

So, while our daily recommendations are higher, there’s still a comparable amount of active ingredient (3%) needed to be effective. Plus, with whole seeds, your pet gets the added health benefits of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
