Lipo Form for Dogs

Lipo Form is a supplement for canines and can be administered to dogs that require additional lipotropic factors such as choline or methionine. Lipo Form is available in the form of chewable tablets that are generally well liked by canines. In some cases, Lipo Form is also used in overweight dogs that require weight loss.

Lipo Form for Dogs

Lipo Form is a lipotropic chewable tablet that can be administered to dogs that have a liver disease such as fatty liver or that suffer from an impaired metabolism of lipids.

Lipo Form may also be used in dogs that need to lose some weight, as the choline included in the product facilitates the reduction of fat.

The tablets may also prevent dietary deficiencies in pets that are prone to this condition.

Ingredients of Lipo Form

Lipo Form contains supplementary lipotropic factors such as the following:

  • Choline, which facilitates the assimilation and transport of fat
  • Methionine, which can stimulate the production of choline in the dog’s body
  • Inositol

Other vitamins and ingredients included in Lipo Form include these:

  • Niacin
  • Vitamin E
  • Pantothenic acid
  • Riboflavin
  • Pyridoxine hydrochloride
  • Thiamine mononitrate
  • Folic acid
  • Vitamin B 12
  • Magnesium

The main ingredients used to make Lipo Form include natural compounds such as brewer’s yeast or cod liver oil.

Lipo Form Dosage for Dogs

Lipo Form is available in the form of tablets, which can also be palatable. The dosage is typically established by the vet, according to a dog's age, weight and health condition. The recommended dose should not be more than 1 tablet per 22 pounds (10 kg) of body weight. However, for severe liver disease and dietary deficiencies, the dose can be doubled. Don’t administer Lipo Form before you consult a vet.

The supplements can be added to the pet’s food or administered with a treat. The tablets are chewable, and typically, dogs like the taste of this type of supplement. The tablets shouldn’t be dissolved in water, as the dog may not drink all the water and may not ingest the entire dose.

Lipo Form Side Effects in Dogs

Lipo Form is considered a safe medication. No major side effects are reported. In rare cases, the dog may experience stomach upset, especially during the first days after starting the treatment. Ideally, Lipo Form should be administered only for short periods. If it is administered for long periods, a dog may start developing stomach irritation and even gastric ulcers. If these side effects occur, try administering the supplements together with the dog’s meals.

Lipo Form Cautions

Lipo Form should be kept out of the reach of children and pets. Make sure you administer only the recommended dose. In the case of an overdose, contact your veterinarian and try to induce vomiting with diluted peroxide.

Keep the tablets in a dry place at room temperature (no more than 40°C or 104°F) away from light.
