herbs for dogs with age issues
Diuretic herbs can help your pet expel wastes and toxins from his system but these should be given carefully as some dogs might exhibit adverse reactions to certain herbs.
Safe herbs with diuretic properties include:
red clover
raspberry leaves
Burdock is a natural diuretic that improves digestion, purifies the blood and increases sweating.
Dandelion is rich in potassium and should be used in conjunction with other diuretics that can deplete the body’s store of potassium. It increases urine flow and helps eliminate wastes and toxins from the body. Red clover is the strongest natural diuretic for dogs and purifies the blood and helps cure cough, asthma and skin diseases. Alfalfa and raspberry leaves improve digestion and purify the blood.
Diuretic Foods
Diuretic foods such as banana, celery, Brussels sprouts, carrots, garlic and melons are natural diuretics that can be beneficial in small quantities. Bananas contain potassium that strengthen your pet’s muscular system and prevent inflammatory bowel disease as they add small amounts of natural acidophilus bacteria to your pet’s bowels.
Celery seeds and plants contain high amounts of potassium and sodium and promote increased urine production. Celery is also a natural blood purifier and detoxifier. Besides this, consider adding Brussels sprouts to your pet’s food as they stimulate the kidneys and pancreas, and cleanse body tissues.
Health Benefits of Carrots, Garlic and Melons:
The carotene in carrots increases metabolism and the removal of waste and fat deposits.
Carrots aid in the elimination of uric acid and prevent it from crystallizing.
The mustard oils in garlic are cleansing in nature and break down and flush out fats.
Melons such as watermelons contain high levels of water, potassium and sodium. These stimulate the production of urine and eliminate toxins from the body.
You should incorporate small amounts of natural diuretics in your pet’s diet taking into consideration his size. Natural diuretics can be both effective and safe for your pet.
