Soothing Tummies with Boswellia for Dogs and Cats

Herbs For Pets 2 min read

Boswellia is a group of tree species found in Asia and Africa. This branching tree’s aroma has made it a popular plant in many cultures for rituals, traditional medicines, and perfumes.

While supplements derived from this tree may not make your pet smell nice, extracts of this tree have organic molecules with beneficial properties, including for our furry friends. In fact, using boswellia for dogs or cats can help with a variety of inflammatory conditions.

What Makes Boswellia Anti-Inflammatory?

We hear a lot about how anti-inflammatories are good for health, but what exactly is an anti-inflammatory? Inflammation is the body’s response to injuries and allergies. While this is not a bad thing, prolonged inflammation can cause more damage than good.

Prolonged inflammation can cause more damage than good

Boswellia has anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it can dampen excessive inflammation. Scientists believe it does this by inhibiting certain enzymes and inflammatory proteins.

Role in TumFlora: Supporting Your Pet’s Digestive Wellness

The key components of Boswellia have been identified as boswellic acid. Research suggests that boswellic acids have shown promise for use against a number of diseases and conditions.

Owing to its impressive anti-inflammatory properties, our vets have included it in TumFlora. This all-natural and vet-approved formula can help ease the symptoms of IBD and IBS, as well as general tummy troubles. Because these disorders are associated with inflammation, it is a good idea to ensure your pet is getting adequate anti-inflammatories through diet, medication, or supplements.

Boswellia for Dogs and Cats: Tips to Know

Taking boswellia with fat may help it absorb better. You can pair boswellia with a dose of PetOmega 3 for added nutrients and bonus anti-inflammatory effects.

Boswellia will remain active in the body for about 6 hours after it has been administered. For that reason, it is best given twice daily – but don’t guess around with dosing your pet. We have guides that can help you give them the correct amount each and every time.

Additionally, boswellia should not be given to pregnant or lactating animals, so hold off giving boswellia to new mamas or soon to be mamas!

Holistic vets love boswellia for dogs and cats because it is well-tolerated and safe to use in the long term. However, when you begin to give boswellia to your pet, there are a few things to keep in mind.

The dosage and quality of the herbal ingredient are crucial for safety and efficacy. We advise against using any herb without proper guidance and under the supervision of your pet’s veterinary team. NHV formulas are meticulously researched and made in a GMP-certified facility using only the highest quality organic or ethically harvested herbs. Each formulation was expertly developed by a holistic veterinarian and a master herbalist with a combined 50 years of experience in plant-based remedies. Through dedication and research, NHV formulations are safe and effective in extracting the medicinal properties of the herb through a patented process.
