Pet Health: Schuessler’s Salts

Older animals often struggle due to a mineral deficiency that compromises the oxygenation, digestion, and detoxification that take place in the cells. This was first discovered by a 19th century German physician named Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler, who proposed 12 types of salts diluted in water and ingested to treat a wide variety of ailments.

Today his tissue salts are still a safe and effective way to treat older animals with weakness or chronic conditions. Look for tissue salts (aka cell salts or Schuessler salts) at pet food stores that specialize in natural products.
