Natural Herbal Treatment for Bladder Infection/UTI in Dogs & Cats
Bladder blend is a natural herbal remedy for dogs and cats based on the principles of Chinese medicine. Painful or difficult urination is a common symptom seen in many pets with bladder/urinary tract infections. Ongoing, recurring UTIs and stones are commonly seen in some pets. Others eat a diet heavy in rich and fatty foods, setting off a process that leads to chronic bladder pain, difficult urination or incontinence. Treatment with bladder blend takes into account these various causes to heal acute and chronic bladder problems at the root.*
How Does it Work?
In Chinese medicine, painful urination, urgency, dribbling urine, and other symptoms of bladder infections are caused by a build-up of dampness and heat in the Urinary Bladder.*
Dampness comes about when the Qi (energy) of the Spleen is weak and deficient. (As a reminder, organs in Chinese medicine are not the same as the organs of Western medicine. The Chinese “Spleen” has very little to do with the anatomical spleen.) The Spleen transforms food into energy by separating the “clear essences” (which become energy) from the “turbid waste” (which is excreted). Rich, greasy, and fatty foods damage the Spleen. Turbid waste then builds up in the body in the form of dampness.*
Frustration causes the Liver Qi to stagnate and gives rise to heat. Pets become frustrated when they are left alone for too long, if they can’t play all the time, or if there is stress in the household. The heat generated from the Liver combines with dampness from the Spleen and pours down into the Urinary Bladder meridian.*
Damp-heat in the Urinary Bladder causes painful urination, dribbling urine, and urgency. Over time, damp and heat can congeal and cause crystals, sand, or stones to form. Bladder Blend is an all-natural remedy that includes herbs to dissolve stones, but if you suspect your pet has stones or if there is blood in the urine, please follow the advice and prescription of your veterinarian.*
The Chinese medicine treatment principles of the blend are to –
• Clear heat and eliminate damp from the Urinary Bladder*
• Unblock painful urinary dysfunction*
Directions & Dosage
Treatment Course – For a pet with painful, dribbling urination, herbs should be administered for 15 days. For crystals, sand, or stones herbs can be given for 6 to 8 weeks. This blend is safe for long term use. If treatment is given for more than two weeks, we recommend treating for 8 days on and two days off.
Mix blend into food. Refrigerate when open.
Because of the sweet flavor of the glycerine in our blends, most animals enjoy the taste. Some may need the herbs to be mixed into wet food.
