A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Vetri-SAMe is a product to help dogs maintain optimal health and function of your pet's liver. SAMe is important for maintaining normal membrane function in liver cells. Glutathione (GSH) is a powerful antioxidant and the liver's primary line of defense.The GSH in this formula is enteric coated to ensure absorption in the small intestine. It also supports cognitive function. SAMe contributes to the balancing of the activity associated with brain neurotransmitters.It enhances the binding of neurotransmitters to receptor sites within the brain resulting in increased activity of Serotonin and Dopamine. The clinical evidence for the effectiveness of SAMe as a mood enhancing nutrient has been supported in nearly 100 published studies.

Optimal absorption of SAMe occurs in the small intestine. For this reason, tablets are enteric coated to protect the ingredients from stomach acid. Do not crush or break tablets, as this damages the enteric coating and thereby inhibits absorption. For best results, give on an empty stomach one hour prior to feeding.
