Tips for Kidney & Urinary Tract Health

Hi, this is Rita Hogan and welcome to the Dogs Are Individuals podcast. I’m a clinical herbalist and I’ve been practicing for 20 years. This podcast is all about your dog through an herbal lens. So let’s get to it and dive right in. We are covering a little bit of kidney and urinary health today, upon request. We got an email requesting more information about urinary health for pups who struggle with urinary issues, crystals and UTI’s. I just did a review of the Modern Dog Parent Handbook by Bryce and Kenzie, a holistic approach to raw feeding, mental enrichment, and keeping your dog happy and healthy. This book is a great place to start, as well as The Forever Dog by Rodney Habib and Dr. Karen Becker. These will give you a lot of information to check out and use with your dog. My book, The Herbal Dog, will come out next February and is available for pre-sale right now at Inner Tradition publishing, Barnes and Nobles, and Amazon UK.
