Cell Salts for Pets Part Three: Top 5 cell salts for your pet's digestion

Quick note about digestion and allergies:

Cell salts can be a helpful adjunct therapy to help improve your pet’s digestion and smooth over digestive difficulties as they arise. Before discussing the top five cell salts for your pet’s digestion, it’s worth mentioning that many of our pet’s digestive problems are due to an allergy of some kind. Along with looking at natural remedies to support your dog's digestion, you also may want to investigate what is causing the sensitivity in the first place.

Some Notes to Consider Before Giving Cell Salts to Your Pet:

  1. The nature of your pet’s health complaint: If your pet has a chronic complaint, is on prescribed medication for their condition, and/or has multiple conditions that require medical supervision; you should consult with their health practitioner before trying cell salts.
  2. Type of health complaint: Generally, it is safe to try cell salts for your pet's skin and fur, digestion, and musculoskeletal health.
  3. Dosage forms to AVOID: Liquid forms with ethanol or alcohol in them. Alcohol is a poison to your cat and dog and should be avoided. If your pet has food allergies, avoiding lactose-based tablets can help assess the effect of the cell salt’s active ingredient without an unnecessary allergic reaction to the compounding base.

In no particular order, here are the top five cell salts to support your dog or cat’s digestion:

  1. #2 Calcarea phosphorica 6X – assists digestion, production of gastric juices. Loose stools from poor assimilation of food. Poor digestion and nutrition problems in young animals.
  2. #9 Natrum muriaticum 6X – promotes HCL production, indicated in cases of too much/not enough moisture in cells. Slow, difficult stools. Gastric uprisings (watery) from slow digestion.
  3. #10 Natrum phosphoricum 6X – widely known as the ‘homeopathic antacid’, first one to think of in gastric disturbances, indigestion. Strong intolerance to fatty foods and dairy.
  4. #11 Natrum sulphuricum 6X – where #9 helps distribute water within the cells, #11 helps remove excess water. A strong affinity for the lower digestive tract and, in particular, has a big role to play in the healthy functioning of the liver; it ensures an adequate supply of free-flowing, healthy bile, which is so necessary for the later stages of digestion.
  5. #12 Silica 6X – long history of a deficient assimilation of nutrients. Slow digestion, difficult stools. Think of pets with weak digestion and unhealthy fur/nails.
