My pup has been experiencing some incontinence issues.
Q. Dear Terry, “My pup, well she’s a 14 year old terrier mix, has been experiencing some incontinence issues. I’m hoping there is something natural I can give her, instead of a prescription medication. What would you give your dog?” — Zara L., Nashua, NH
A. Dear Zara, As our pets age, their bladder can lose its tone because the bladder is a muscular sac. When the bladder loses tone, it can also lose its capacity to hold urine properly. But 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 Angelica once per day.
When choosing a formula, I recommend finding one that features an aqueous (water) extract of the Angelica leaves that has been scientifically studied.
