Burdock root is one of those magical herbal treatments you can give your dog for a number of ailments. It is mostly used as a preventative measure, ridding the body of environmental toxins and flushing pollutants away. It nabs free radicals in the liver, too.
Burdock root can also be used as part of your dog’s skin care regimen. It has been known to treat conditions like psoriasis and works internally to improve the overall look of your dog’s coat and skin.
Burdock root also purifies the blood and boosts the liver, assisting in overall kidney function along the way and alleviating stress on various internal organs.
It is a remarkably safe herbal treatment, too, and is especially good when used in its purest form – as in this offering from Starwest Botanicals.
