Natural Treatments for Kidney Disease in Dogs

As dogs age they are most likely to develop kidney issues. Their kidneys stop doing all the jobs they were meant to do such as filtering the blood to remove waste, saving the good salts (electrolytes), saving protein in the blood and producing factors that make red blood cells. When this happens your dog may go into kidney failure. Conventional treatment for this is fluids, medication and maybe a special diet. Beyond that your traditional veterinarian cannot help you. Holistic medicine offers many other options which are effective combined with traditional medications and on their own. Holistic nutrition, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and supplements like Omega 3 fatty acids and B vitamins can help to prolong your pet’s life and improve his appetite and energy level. Natural supplements like Tripsy can be a life saver for these pets. Chinese herbs like Rehmannia have been used for thousands of years for kidney problems in humans. For this condition holistic medicine has a lot to offer
