Boost your dog's liver to prevent skin issues
Does your dog scratch, have a hot spot, skin conditions (eczema, pustules), dryness of the coat or itch excessively?
Have you tried everything to get your dogs skin problems under control?
Skin problems are one of the most common reasons that owners take their dog to the vet, who often prescribes a concoction of steroids or other immune suppressing drugs, which keeps your dog in a cycle of sickness because these types of ‘treatments’ are just masking the real problem.
The secret to understanding skin issues is to turn to the organ that processes everything you put in or on your dog.
Your dogs skin functions as an integrated organ. It communicates through pathways, including the kidney, digestive, lymphatic and liver systems. The liver is the hub of your dogs detoxification pathways. So, systemically, a balanced liver should see your dogs skin issues improve.
The lymphatic system distributes tissue nourishment to your dogs body. It works with the liver and elimination systems. These vessels carry lymphatic fluid which moves waste and nourishment throughout the body.
When the lymph slows down, waste removal suffers. This causes an imbalanced, congested liver which pushes toxins to the surface - your dogs skin! This is when you start to see;
* Skin issues - eczema, pustules
* Hot spots
* Excessive itching
Some herbs can support the liver and skin without suppressing the body like pharmaceuticals do. The following herbs will support your dogs liver to help fix skin issues
Yellow dock has an affinity towards the skin and the liver. It helps to tighten tissues and expel heat from the liver, supports the lymphatic & circulatory systems, cools the body and reduces inflammation, calms itching & scratching, promotes energy flow and helps balance your dogs emotions where they are affected by chronic skin conditions.
Yellow Dock is fantastic when combined with Dandelion, which stimulates bile production and circulation throughout the liver. It helps to remove toxins from the body, via the kidneys.
Artichoke is high in antioxidants quercetin, rutin, anthocyanins, cynarin, luteolin, and silymarin which increases bile flow and aids the regeneration of liver tissue. It also aids digestion and improves gallbladder function.
Milk Thistle helps with lymphatic drainage and detoxification. It stimulates cell regeneration, repairs & restores normal function of the liver.
Proflax Liver Love includes these herbs in the form of high strength active tinctures, combined with pure cold pressed flaxseed oil.
Feed Liver Love once daily with your dogs regular food to improve their liver function and skin health.
