Dogs are hard wired to chew on plants based on their medicinal value when they are feeling unwell. Growing several herbs that are known to be beneficial to dogs can serve as a first aid measure whenever necessary.
You can allocate a small space for a herb garden, such as a plant box or windowsill, if a porch or yard is not present in your home.
Sprinkling these five herbs on canine meals now and then can keep dogs healthy and well:
From lowering blood pressure and sugar to aiding in digestion and healing, Astragalus can be used for a variety of conditions and is safe to mix into dog food daily.
Known for clearing congestion and reducing heat in the body, Burdock contains properties that could prevent cancer, and can be used internally or externally for a host of skin problems.
3. Lemon Balm
A perennial herb that contains soothing properties, Lemon Balm boosts memory and increases vitality, and is particularly favorable to anxious dogs and senior pets.
4. Milk Thistle
A natural medicine that provides healing benefits to the gallbladder, kidneys, and liver, Milk Thistle is also calming for dogs with intense temperaments.
Recognized for its distinct fragrance, Peppermint freshens breath, relieves toothaches, and soothes insect bites. This quick growing herb is also known to help alleviate canine indigestion and nausea.
