Our Antilithic is an herbal formula for dog and cat kidney and bladder stone issues. It is formulated by a Master Herbalist using time-honored herbs that help to dissolve existing urinary calculi and prevent their formation in the future. You may use this remedy until your pet's current condition improves and then as a lifetime preventative on a five days on two days off schedule or on a rotational basis of one week of usage per month.
antilithic (an'tē-lith'ik) - Preventing the formation of calculi or promoting their dissolution.
Antilithic is formulated with certified USDA organic herbs that help to dissolve calculi, soothe the urinary tract, firm and tighten tissue and help the kidneys to eliminate metabolic waste products. This formula is very useful in helping the animal with a history of kidney/bladder stones or urinary tract gravel and is safe to give long term to prevent future issues.
How much should I purchase?
We recommend getting enough for at least two to four weeks to start if you are trying to dissolve existing renal calculi. If you wish to keep your dog or cat on this remedy for their lifetime to remedy current issues and prevent the occurrence of these issues again in the future then you may purchase any quantity you desire. You may also use this remedy on a rotational basis, for instance one week per month, to prevent future issues as an option. With this remedy we are trying to promote the health of the urinary tract and not just dissolve calculi so this remedy functions differently from a medication and can result in true healing.
A two ounce bottle contains 60 ml. We recommend providing this herbal remedy at least three times per day at first until desired results are seen. This means a 25 pound dog will receive 3 ml daily, so a two ounce bottle will last for twenty days. In this case we recommend you purchase at least one to two bottles so you have a sufficient time period to see how this remedy works for your animal. If you then decide to continue using our Antilithic for your dog or cat try to place your reorder so there is no interruption in your animal's treatment.
What to Look for in a Superior Urinary Calculi Formula
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or have been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ 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.
✓ Alcohol-Free 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.
