7 NATURAL HERBAL BIOHACKS THAT POWER YOUR DOG

This article is a must-read for any animal lover!

During their life, many of our dog's basic needs, from diet to exercise, will begin to change. Dogs are very good at hiding their health problems so it’s our responsibility to keep an eye on our senior or growing dogs to ensure that we’re adjusting their routine to match changes in their bodies and immune systems.

When I heard that Ferdinando got cancer I developed tunnel vision. The room spun...

But I did not give up! Instead, I had a long and intimate relationship with Google! And this is my top 6 holistic biohacks which powered Ferdinando's health.

#1. DANDELION

It was my first and probably the most important shot regarding herbal medicine. Dandelion is nearly perfect whole food source of vitamins and minerals is easily absorbed by the body and is a great supplement to any dog’s daily diet.

I easily collected dandelion leaves from my lawn (make sure they are never sprayed with herbicides or pesticides), dry them and sprinkle a teaspoon per 20 pounds body weight directly onto your dog’s food or be crazy like me - make a coffee:) ( You can try this usage for any of following herbs).

P.S. After first days of use Ferdinando pooped and pissed A LOT, but then I read that it's totally normal because his body was cleaning it self.

MAIN VALUES:

1. Improves the immune system

2. An ideal choice for dogs with chronic indigestion or those with gas (especially for pugs and french bulldogs)

3. Acts as a diuretic, making it useful in cases of arthritis, kidney stones, congestive heart failure and gallbladder disease

#3. HOWTHORN SEEDS

I know hawthorn seeds from my grandmother who always had a high blood pressure and used these seed drink instead of her morning coffee. Hawthorn is a super herb that is known for its uses as a heart health tonic.

A tonic is something that supports the body’s overall function, making it run better so that diseases and other problems do not develop or get worse.

If your dog is in its senior years like our Crete the Shelter lady, you may find that hawthorn makes for a stellar daily supplement to fight against heart problems like abnormal heartbeats, high blood pressure, and congestive heart failure.

MAIN VALUES:

1. It helps blood vessels in the body to dilate, increasing circulation and bringing new, fresh blood to the suffering organs

2. If your dog is extremely active, giving it a daily hawthorn drink can help to fortify smooth muscle tissues in the body

3. Good for dogs recovering from infections
