How Molasses Can Benefit Your Older Dog
Sometimes the keep it simple theory is the most effective. If you are like me I would have never have thought that jar of molasses could be a home remedy for my pet’s ailments, but molasses — particularly blackstrap molasses — has a history as a natural cure for many ailments among dogs and humans alike.
Blackstrap molasses is full of minerals and a few other nutrients, the combination of which has been effective in combatting both acute and chronic ailments. The alternative health community has used molasses in the treatment of arthritis in dogs. Also, some report using molasses successfully as a remedy for dogs suffering symptoms of bereavement and even for tumors
Two weeks ago I started using Blackstrape Molasses drizzled over their dog food, 4 of my dogs with the worst arthritis and movement have become increasingly more flexible and mobile. I would have NEVER thought this possible but I was amazed to watch them enjoying their newly rediscovered mobility.
