My little rescue dog is experiencing some urine leakage.
Q. Dear Terry, “My little rescue dog has had some health challenges. She was used as a breeding dog in a puppy mill and had many litters of puppies. She is experiencing some urine leakage, which can be common for dogs that have been bred. Is there anything natural that I can give her?” – Ana G., Austin, TX
A. Dear Ana, Age and breeding can both cause the bladder to lose its tone. 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 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.
