Phytopet Allergy Aid Herbal Remedy
Phytopet Allergy Aid Herbal Remedy offers natural help for your dog’s allergies. Natural and safe, Phytopet Allergy Aid is a non-drowsy combination of liquid botanical extracts shown to have antihistamine and anti-inflammatory actions. Use for allergic reactions and hot, inflamed, itchy skin conditions.
Phytopet Allergy Aid Herbal Remedy contains only 100% natural, human-grade ingredients:
- Scutellaria baicalensis (Chinese skullcap or Huang Qin) – flavonoids present in Chinese skullcap appear to inhibit histamine from mast cells. Histamine is responsible for the symptoms of allergic reactions. Chinese skullcap appears to help with the symptoms of hayfever, asthma, atopic ezema, food allergies and other allergic conditions. Along with inhibiting histamine release, Chinese skullcap also appears to exert a potent anti-inflammatory effect. This action seems to be due to the inhibiting effect Chinese skullcap has on the release of inflammatory leukotriens and prostaglandins. Prostaglandins and leukotriens are approximately 1000 times more inflammatory than histamine. Initial research suggests its anti-inflammatory effect is comparable to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, with none of the associated side effects. Chinese skullcap has also been shown to be an effective antioxidant. This action is especially useful considering the detrimental role free radicals can play on inflammatory conditions.
- Gingko biloba (Gingko) – well known for its effect on circulation and brain function, Gingko also inhibits platelet-activating factor (PAF), one of the major chemical triggers in asthma, inflammation and allergies. Rich in flavonoids.
- Euphrasia officinalis (Eyebright) – as the name suggests, eyebright has a special affinity with the eyes, nose and sinuses. Its actions are anti-inflammatory and antihistamine, so although the special affinity to eyes and sinuses is well noted, it also has a calming effect on other allergic reactions.
- Urtica dioica (Nettle) – a traditional remedy for all forms of allergic reactions.
Easy to use: add drops from the dropper bottle to water, food or treats.
Avoid during pregnancy. Although evidence does not suggest any problems, it is felt that due to the presence of flavonoids in Chinese skullcap, it would be prudent to check with your vet or a qualified herbalist before using with prescribed anticoagulants.
