Herbs for Dogs
For thousands of years plantain has been used topically to treat the likes of wounds, insect bites and stings, and also ingested for its astringent properties to cure the likes of diarrhea.
Despite the fact that most people consider it a pernicious weed, plantain (also known as broadleaf plantain) is actually one of the world’s most abundant medicinal plants. Traditionally used topically to treat the likes of cuts, insect bites and stings, plantain is also ingested for its astringent properties to cure the likes of diarrhea.
Th leaves of the plantain have antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties making it useful for hypertension and beneficial for treating digestive and urinary problems in dogs.
It is rich in vitamins A, C and K together with silica and calcium.
Young tender leaves can be fed to your dog raw as you would lettuce for example, while older, stringier leaves can be boiled and then added to your dog’s food just as you would kale, cabbage, or any other highly nutritious leafy vegetable.
It is both safe and beneficial to give your dog plantain on occasion.
