The dandelion leaf packs quite a nutritional punch. Rich in iron, phosphorus and vitamins A, B, C, D and K, this whole food source is a great supplement for any dog’s diet. If your dog suffers from digestion issues, dandelions could be a great herb to consider.
Dandelion contains potassium which stimulates the appetite and helps with kidney functions. Additionally, the dandelion acts as a diuretic, meaning they can help treat joint-related pain such as arthritis. As it contains a lot of potassium, the dandelion can be lost through urination which is ideal as it stimulates the liver and promotes expulsion of waste from the body.
