Top 5 Herbs for Joint & Arthritic Pain in Dogs and Cats

Joint and muscle pain and arthritic conditions are commonly experienced by our dogs and cats, leading as one of the top 5 reason for vet visits. Natura Petz Organics introduces five medicinal plants which are used in traditional medical systems to help address arthritic and rheumatic conditions, muscle and joint pain, strains and injuries.

Herbal blends are used traditionally to help reduce discomfort by helping deliver plant based pain relief, to help limit inflammation and to help aid joint mobility, flexibility and range of motion. Some plants are reparative, in that they help stimulate collagen production, which is the framework for all bone and joint materials in the animal body, and is particularly important in degenerative conditions related to arthritis.

These five plants are also adaptogenic and tonic in nature, which may help identify stress and dysfunction in body systems, as well as may help introduce reparative and synergistic benefits for symptoms related to joint and muscle decline and pain.
