Our UTI Relief is an effective blend containing organic herbs with antimicrobial, astringent and soothing constituents for dogs and cats suffering with urinary tract infections. This formula was developed by a certified Master Herbalist to be used short-term to help the body overcome infection or once a month for three to five days to prevent future infections.
Use in conjunction with our Topical Probiotic Spray for long-term success naturally treating and preventing urinary tract infections.
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains organic herbs and other foods grown organically have been shown to have higher amount of important nutrients. They are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have.
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.
✓ Non Alcoholic Tincture with ORGANIC Vegetable Glycerin for Animals
Our blend is formulated by a special process using low heat and organic vegetable glycerin. Tinctures are concentrated forms of a plant's constituents that are readily absorbed and utilized by your pet's body. Because your pet may not like the taste of alcohol, we use vegetable glycerin which gives our tinctures a sweet taste your animals will like. Vegetable glycerin is a carbohydrate but is metabolized differently than sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is also an efficient menstruum which extracts valuable constituents from plants and makes them readily available to the body. In addition, we take the extra time and effort to use a low heat process that extracts many more constituents than just soaking in glycerin alone as is done by most other herbal companies. And, of course, the use of USDA organic vegetable glycerin ensures your pet avoids genetically modified ingredients and herbicides in their natural medicine.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

Follow the links below to view Natural Pet Health Protocols in which this product is included. We have created these protocols using our years of experience working with dogs and cats. Protocols are a group of supplements that work together to help support weak organs and glands and improve overall health. They can be very powerful at solving many pet health complaints and often result in true healing. We feel they are a much better alternative to medications that basically just suppress symptoms and often have many serious side-effects. There may be a time and place for prescription drugs, however we feel that time is after a safer and more natural approach has been tried.
