My 10-year-old dog recently started losing urine when she gets excited.

Q. Dear Terry, “My 10-year-old dog recently started losing urine when she gets excited. The veterinarian said it’s a normal part of aging. I don’t think she needs medications, but I’m hoping there is something natural I can give her. What do you suggest?” – Natalie H., Rapid City, SD

A. Dear Natalie, Age is one of the primary factors that can contribute to decreased bladder tone in people and pets. The bladder is a muscular sac and without proper tone it can lose its capacity to hold urine properly. Fortunately, there is a botanical that can help with some of these changes.

To support your dog’s bladder, you may want to consider Angelica archangelica. Also called “Angel’s Herb”, this beautiful plant grows all over Iceland. When it comes to bladder support, for people and pets, this is the single, most efficacious botanical I have ever encountered.

Not only does Angelica help to strengthen the bladder muscles, but it also helps increase bladder capacity. That can mean less urinary leakage and dribbling.

I would give your dog 100 mg of this herb once per day.

When choosing a formula, I recommend finding one that features an aqueous (water) extract of Angelica that has been scientifically studied.

Healthy Regards!
