Proteinuria is a condition characterized by the presence of an abnormal amount of protein in the urine. While it can be a symptom of an underlying health issue, our specially crafted pet botanicals aim to provide supportive care for pets dealing with proteinuria. In this article, we'll explore what proteinuria is and how our botanical blend can contribute to the well-being of pets facing this urinary challenge.

Understanding Proteinuria in Pets: Proteinuria occurs when an excessive amount of protein, typically albumin, is excreted in the urine. In a healthy state, the kidneys filter and reabsorb proteins to maintain their proper balance in the body. However, various factors, such as kidney disease, inflammation, or infections, can disrupt this process, leading to proteinuria. Identifying and addressing the underlying cause is crucial for managing proteinuria in pets.


Key Herbs in Our Pet Botanicals:

Dandelion Root:

Benefits: Dandelion root has diuretic properties and is known for supporting kidney function. It may help in maintaining fluid balance and overall kidney health.


Benefits: Nettle is nutrient-rich and has traditionally been used to support the kidneys. It may contribute to overall renal health and assist in addressing proteinuria.

Marshmallow Root:

Benefits: Marshmallow root has mucilaginous properties, creating a soothing layer in the urinary tract. It may help alleviate irritation and support urinary system health.

Corn Silk:

Benefits: Corn silk has diuretic properties and may aid in promoting urine flow. It can be beneficial in maintaining urinary tract health and addressing proteinuria.


How Our Pet Botanicals Can Help:

  • Kidney Support: Dandelion root and Nettle in our botanical blend provide support for kidney function, assisting in managing proteinuria.

  • Urinary Tract Comfort: Marshmallow root's mucilaginous properties offer a soothing layer in the urinary tract, helping alleviate irritation associated with proteinuria.

  • Diuretic Benefits: Corn silk's diuretic properties contribute to maintaining urine flow, supporting overall urinary tract health.

It's crucial to note that while our pet botanicals can offer valuable support, they should be used as part of a comprehensive care plan under the guidance of a veterinarian. Identifying and addressing the underlying cause of proteinuria is essential for effective management. Always consult with your veterinarian to ensure the best care for your pet's specific urinary and renal health needs.
