Great talk on cancer in Dogs with Dr. Karen Becker and Rodney Habib.
A must listen if you love your dogs and want the best for them!
I have used Milk Thistle with my pets for years to detox the kidneys and liver. There are so many toxins in our environment that both people n pets need to detox from our systems. I also use many mushrooms and essential oils to assist in detoxing.
ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT HERBS TO EVER ADD TO YOUR PET’S DIET!
Use ¼ of a teaspoon per 20lbs of body weight.
The Natural Way to Enhance your Pet’s Life: “Despite much of the publicity that has been generated about this ‘wonder herb’, milk thistle should not be used as a daily food supplement. Milk thistle is a medicine that is best reserved for situations in which the liver is already under abnormal stress.” Most holistic doctors feel that milk thistle should be administered for 3-6 weeks with a 1-3 week break.
Detoxification is such an important process, not only for us humans, but also for our pets. We can be feeding our furry loved ones the best foods in the world but pores clogged with toxins will not allow essential nutrients to pass, causing a weakened immune system. A pet’s weakened immune system equals a multitude of problems! Milk thistle is the boss of detoxifiers!
But what else can this rock star of an herb do exactly?
This recipe is a great way to get mushrooms into your pets diet.
