Nutrition plays a major role in bone, teeth, skin and coat health and is the result of a well-functioning, synchronized effort by the immune systems and tissues and organs in the body. Plant botanicals support the process of free radical scavenging, the skin’s ability to withstand and repair the effects of environmental exposure to toxins, antigens, microorganisms and skin wounds by maintaining proper liver, adrenal, immune, and intestinal function; protect the skin and connective tissues in the joints, reduce inflammation in the joints, acidify urine, improve immune function and build resistance to allergies.

Scrofula is a kind of tuberculosis that is characterized by swellings of the lymphatic glands. It is generally hereditary and it mainly affects lymphatic glands, primarily of the neck. The disease progresses slowly with abscesses and pitsulas. Typically, scrofula is a rare condition in dogs and cats.

Scrofula is also referred to as tuberculosis (TB), which is a contagious bacterial infection that involves the lungs but may spread to other parts of the body. Tuberculosis is caused by a bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and spreads via droplets expelled by the lungs while coughing or sneezing.

Symptoms often include a rough, dull coat, often accompanied with an offensive odor. The lymphatic glands swell; eyes may have a chronic, whitish discharge and an irregular appetite. The symptoms become chronic as the dog grows older, and the abdomen becomes pendulous.

Common symptoms include coughing, expectorating blood and mucus, fever, fatigue, unintentional weight loss, breathing difficulty, wheezing and excessive sweating.  (especially at night). The people most at risk for contracting TB include puppies and kittens, senior pets, animals with a weakened immune system, infection and people exposed to the disease.

Scrofula cannot be cured but maintaining strict cleanliness should be observed, both in the animal’s coat and surroundings. Your pet should be groomed daily to promote healthier skin and coat, get plenty of exercise, fresh air and bathed regularly. It is also helpful to administer herbals to purify the blood.
