I was very concerned about the comments L4H made regarding the liver so emailed directly to Cartrophen Vet and have received a reply from Dr. Apse, who is the gentleman in the website video. Dr. Apse's answer is, "You asked about whether liver function tests are necessary for cats. My answer is simple: it is not necessary -- it is not done in dogs and the metabolism is the same. As with any drug caution should be exercised if the liver tests are abnormal prior to use..........Off label vets do not do liver function tests as a matter of routine unless there are good grounds to do so
