Enlarged Spleen Remedies for Dogs

Last Modified on May 22, 2014

If your pet shows symptoms of an enlarged spleen or has been diagnosed with this medical condition, there are a few natural remedies you can apply to help improve your dog, cat, or other animal's health. The spleen is an important but not essential bodily organ tasked with cleansing the body and recycling red blood cells. Thus blood-supporting home remedies are beneficial for pets with spleen issues.

A pet's spleen can become an issue as a result of trauma, due to cancerous growths, or due to certain genetic or other causes. In each case, your pet is like to show significant symptoms and will need a vet's care, where a splenectomy (removal of the spleen) may be recommended.

Home Remedies: Immune-boosting and blood-supporting foods and supplements can help support your pet's health in the absence of a spleen or while it is functioning poorly. Dandelion greens given occasionally is sometimes suggested to help cleanse the body.
