What can I give my 9-year-old dog for bladder issues?
Q. Dear Terry, “What can I give my 9-year-old dog for bladder issues? She has small accidents that recently started. I took her to the veterinarian and they said it’s not an infection, but probably due to her age.” – Ben G., Houston, TX
A. Dear Ben, 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.
