Herbal Supplements for Dogs
and How to Give Them

Sometimes giving herbal supplements for dogs can be a struggle. In today’s Dog Talk Tuesday, I spotlight one of my NSP members because I learned something new and can’t wait to share it with you.

I admit I’m one of the lucky ones. Lulu trusts me so I can drop herbal capsules in her food or hand them to her as a treat and she eats them, usually with gusto. But what if that isn’t your experience?

Personally I think pill pockets suck. The ingredients are not exactly food and should be avoided and if you’re a  lover of organic and natural things like I am, have a listen.

Notes on Giving Herbal Supplements

Just to clarify. If I have given you doses for herbs or any supplements that are to be given in food, this recipe is for those times.

If it has to be given on an empty stomach like Silver Shield Silver Sol then do not add that to the butter. Simple.

Is it really possible to see a result in 30 minutes?

Sure. I notice it with myself with some herbal combinations. And while I'm not an expert on how each dog's body works, I do know this.

Anything that gets absorbed through the tissue in the mouth will give you results faster (like homeopathic remedies) and if a particular herb is fat soluble (meaning it takes fat to digest it correctly) then you definitely have a win-win.

By the way, there are fat soluble vitamins and water soluble vitamins. There is no such thing as carbohydrate soluble anything so cut the carbs as much as possible.

Besides, not only is fat a nutrient and needed by the body, it's what makes us feel full and makes our dogs feel full so don't skimp on good raw fats.
