Herbs To Help Detox While Easy To Use

Friday, June 11, 2010

My source for this article is Natural Health For Dogs & Cats...by Dr. Pitcarin...I don't agree with his use of grains for diets for dogs...but that is about it...the book is a great addition to any dog owners library. I especially appreciate his section on vaccines and how they effect the canine. I with more people would read and become educated.

Alfalfa...I have mentioned it in other articles. Alfalfa is a great tonic herb that stimulates digestion as well as appetite. A great herb for dogs that have urinary problems such as crystals, or chronic bladder infections
