Plants Good For Poochie and Pussycat Herbs Your Pets will "Dig"!
You can put these wonderful plants for your Canine or Feline Herbivore in pots, or a garden of their own for casual "grazing." It is fascinating to see how they will instinctively choose what to eat and when. This can also give you tips on what might ail them. Remember herbs have a tendency to "spread," so choose your locations carefully!
Alfalfa, Barley, and Wheat grass- these grasses containing at least 20 amino acids are rich in proteins,vitamins and minerals and act as over all body tonics for both pet and owner (you might just picnic together on this lawn). You can also put in large, easily accessible planters to avoid spreading.
Borage - A lovely blue-flowered plant good for upset intestines and bronchial type coughs.
Catnip - This herb notably attractive to most cats is good used in moderation to stimulate a lazy cat to exercise. If applied to a scratching post or toys it might make them more desirable to your cat than your new chaise lounge! Keep in pot and use sparingly.
Dandelion - Excellent for lymph system and as a blood cleanser and liver tonic. [At last it’s good for something!]
Fennel- Relieves cramps, constipation and may improve memory and reduce obesity.
