Denamarin contains SAMe which markedly increases liver glutathione levels, a potent antioxidant. SAMe also helps protect liver cells from cell death and may help cell repair and regeneration. Denamarin also has Silybin, the most active part of an extract from milk thistle. Silybin acts as an antioxidant and stimulates the flow of bile through the liver to aid in the digestion and absorption of nutrients from your pet's diet. Silybin also helps with liver cell regeneration and may enhance levels of glutathione, the liver's major "detoxifying" agent.

I didn't give her any Denamarin for a couple days because I was afraid that was what made her throw up. So yesterday morning I thought I'd try giving it to her again. Eight hours later she vomited and, again, I found the Denamarin pill undissolved, completely blue and solid.
Has Denamarin been reformulated?? About five years ago, I had another cat who had liver disease and I used to give her Denamarin. Sometimes she would spit the pill out and I'd grab the pill off the floor so I could give it to her again, but it would have already started dissolving and the blue coating would smear all over the floor and my fingers. If I acted quickly enough, I was able to give her the same pill, but most of the time the pill had started dissolving too much, so I'd have to throw it away and give her a new one. In other words, once the Denamarin made contact with saliva, the coating would start dissolving very quickly. Fast forward to present day and not only can I give the cat I have now the same pill over and over (sometimes I screw up on the first try and/or my cat is fussing too much) without it dissolving, but I rarely get any of the blue coating on my fingers on these retries.
Finding these undigested pills has me wondering -
a) when she doesn't vomit, how many days are they just sitting in her stomach??
b) on the days she doesn't throw up, would I find undissolved Denamarin pills in the litter box if I checked??
I've also noticed these pills remain stable (hard) outside of the foil packaging. Five years ago, if I let a pill sit out too long, it would start to get soft. I don't know what's going on, but something has changed...and not for the better.
**She eats and has regular bowel movements every day (and doesn't vomit every day), so I don't understand how the pill(s) can just sit in her stomach and not get carried down to her intestines by the food she eats? If the food is making it through her body, why not the Denamarin?? Every time I give her a pill, I immediately syringe water into her mouth so I'm pretty sure the pills aren't getting stuck in her esophagus.
