Herbs have long been regarded as herbs with medicinal value. Also, herbal teas with their fragrances and flavors are tasty for pets. Even pets that typically don't drink much water will gulp it down! As they drink more liquid, they urinate more, thus helping to detoxify the body through excretion. We have developed a blend of herbal teas specifically for pets. You can choose the one that best suits your pet's needs. Why not incorporate herbs for a healthy daily life?
Herbs were the root of medicine.
Using Herbs for Your Pet's Health
The word "herb" comes from the Latin word "erba," meaning "grass," and has a long history of being used medicinally for various treatments since ancient times.
There are thousands of types of medicinal plants and their effects vary greatly.
In Europe, there is a long history of medicine made using plants (herbal medicine), and ancient Greek physicians recorded many different treatments using herbs.
During the Age of Exploration, it was used in Asia and America, and was then passed down through many generations.
In Asia, it was used as an oriental-style herbal remedy. In recent years, herbs are being used for pets as well rather than just for humans. The field of dog phytotherapy (phytotherapy for dogs) has become recognized, and also things such as “cat herb" cultivation kits exist so that cats can also eat herbs. Primarily, herbs are extracted as a tea using dried herbs that are packed with nutrients.
By preparing herbs as tea, the ingredients can be easily absorbed by the intestines of dogs and cats, who have difficulty digesting plants themselves.
There are two effects for pets from drinking tea: “Scent Effects (Aromatherapy Effects) and “Medicinal Effects”.
Increased water consumption leads to increased urination.
Promoting urination with detox
For cats, they very often develop pee-related illnesses such as kidney disease, urinary tract stones, cystitis, and urethritis.
It is said that to some degree these can be prevented by making your cat drink more water.
Cats tend not to drink much water because their ancestors, the Libyan wildcat, lived in the desert and adapted to living without much water by producing highly concentrated urine.
Water helps dilute toxins in the body which are then expelled through urination.
Urinary diseases such as chronic kidney failure in cats is said to be a result of not drinking enough water. In addition, more and more pets do not like to drink water.
Living indoors at a comfortable temperature and humidity, they may be less likely to become thirsty. The scent and flavor of herbal teas can make it easier for pets to drink more liquids.
The more they drink, the more they will then urinate.
For detoxifications purposes, it's important to know how much water your pet should be drinking per day and ensuring that they do in fact drink that much. The daily water requirement of a healthy pet is indicated in the table, minus metabolic water, which is produced by the body when metabolizing nutrients.
Metabolic water is 10% of the daily water requirement.
Therefore, the remaining 90% of water intake must come from food and drinking water. Let's see how much water is being taken from food.
The average moisture content of "dry food" and "wet food" is approximately as follows.
Moisture content of "dry food”: About 10%
Moisture content of "wet food": About 75%
For example, a pet that eats 170g of "wet food" every day has a calculation of 170*0.75 = 127.5ml.
This means that the pet is consuming 127.5 ml of water from just the food alone.
A pet that eats 100 g of "dry food" every day has a calculation of 100*0.1 = 10 ml.
The standard daily drinking water requirement is the amount of water needed minus the amount taken in from food.
