Lemon balm - Melissa officinalis

Lemon Balm is a non-toxic herb that can be used on dogs, cats, and even horses. As a supplement for your dog, lemon balm has many benefits that may help with several different conditions. 

The most common way lemon balm is used on dogs is as a calming agent, or to treat anxiety. Anxiety and stomach sensitivities are often tied in closely together. Luckily, lemon balm is also great for your dog’s digestive system. Because of their anxiety, many dogs, in turn, have stomach issues such as diarrhea or stomach pain. Whatever the cause of your dog’s nervousness, whether a long trip, relocation, or boarding, lemon balm can treat a sensitive stomach and is a natural sedative. 

One of the most popular characteristics of lemon balm is that, although it has sedative properties, it does not make an animal groggy or incoherent, but instead makes them more aware and focused. Because of this awesome benefit, many dog owners use lemon balm as a supplement for older dogs who suffer from dementia or confusion.

Some dogs suffer from respiratory conditions like chronic bronchitis. The most popular medicinal treatment for any type of respiratory issue is usually Lasix (sometimes known as Salix and Furosemide). Many pet owners are unaware of the dangers of long-term Lasix use. It is a diuretic, which means it rids the body of fluids by increasing urination. It is used because it does drain off fluids from the lungs, but it also drains fluids from the entire body. Long-term usage may cause damage to the kidneys, heart, and overall health. Although there is no true substitute for Lasix, lemon balm is a good start. Lemon balm naturally wards off respiratory infection and helps to secure the elasticity of the lungs naturally. With the consultation of your veterinarian, you might be able to help your dog feel their best by supplementing Lasix with lemon balm. Do not change the dose of your pet’s prescription medicine at any time; discuss the possible use of lemon balm in concurrence first.

Lemon balm can be used as a healing herb for wounds. It is dually active in this respect because it is a natural fly and insect repellant as well as a healing agent. When your dog has a cut, flies and insects usually follow, making it hard to keep the wound clean so it can heal quickly.

Lemon balm is a safe, effective herb that is considered very mild, so the allergic reaction rate is relatively low. There are so many great benefits to the use of lemon balm on animals that it is hard to ignore its potential benefits for your dog. However, if your dog has an adverse reaction to the herb, please consult your veterinarian immediately.

Add 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of leaves to a cup of hot water and allow to infuse for 2-3 minutes before straining and serving. Ensure the tea has cooled adequately before presenting it to your dog.
