Many herbs that are commonly used by people to prevent aging and restore youthfulness are also supposed to work on your pet. That includes herbs and medicines such as:

Velvet Antler

Velvet antler is a traditional Chinese medicine that can be used as a dietary supplement for your pets. It is made primarily of the antler velvet from both red deer and elk. It is usually also combined with ginseng. This dietary supplement is generally given to both dogs and cats. It is supposed to help dogs and cats rebuild worn down cartilage and it is also supposed to help reduce joint pain.

This is another Chinese herb that is supposed to give one back their youthfulness. This herb is supposed to give both people and pet back their youthfulness. It is also supposed to cleanse your pet's blood and increase their energy levels.

Each of the herbs listed above are supposed to be safe for your pet. Additional herbs that used in pets for their anti-aging properties include astragalus and royal jelly. 


In addition to the herbs and Chinese medications listed above, there are also specific treatments that holistic veterinarians recommend for your pets in order to promote anti-aging. These treatments are also generally recommended for use in people as well. 

Veterinary Acupuncture: Just like with people, needles are used in veterinary acupuncture. The needs tend to be made of solid metallic metals. Needles are inserted into your animal as specific strategic points in order to strengthen your pet and help them stimulate their natural immune system. 

Veterinary Chiropractic Care: This is a new field that is slowly gaining mainstream acceptance. It has adapted many of the chiropractic techniques used on people and applied these techniques to animals.

Homeopathy: This is the practice of using natural methods to help your animal fight aging and to help them heal from injuries and disease. 

A combination of the above treatments are generally used to promote anti-aging in pets.

Protecting Your Pet

Nearly nine years ago, I adopted a loving, friendly, and hyper puppy. Over the years, this sweet dog has brought much joy to my small family. Because this dog was the first pet I had as an adult, I researched ways to protect her from potential harm. I was amazed to learn that dogs aren’t supposed to eat certain foods such as chocolate, nuts, and grapes. For instance, I discovered that eating grapes can be detrimental to a canine’s kidneys. If you find out your dog has eaten a forbidden food, you should immediately call your trusted veterinarian. This professional can expertly advise you what you need to do in your situation. On this blog, I hope you will discover ways veterinarians treat dogs who have eaten problematic foods.
