Question Chinchilla and milk thistle

My Chinchilla has been very sick and his blood work showed extremely high liver enzimes. My vet said to give him milk thistle so I bought some but don't know what dosage to give him and I cannot reach him right now. Any thoughts?

milk thistle is a natural extract found in many stores. my mom used to have hepatitis and she drank milk thistle every day. you can give your guy like a teaspoon a day to help out. maybe a little less. but ask your vet. being a natural product there's not overdose to worry about, it's as harmless as vitamin c i believe
