High Blood Pressure

Question:

I would like to know if there is something I can use in place of Enalapril for my dog. The vet put her on it because her value in her urine was 4.1 protein and because she was losing protein in that amount we put her on it.  A month later now I had her rechecked and it is down to 1.1, which is good.  However, I use homeopathic and holistic products for my own health and wondered if you had something natural to replace the Enalapril.  It's her blood pressure that needs to be controlled.

Answer:

I would strongly recommend you seek the advice of a holistic veterinarian for treatment options for your dog’s blood pressure control.  There are Chinese herbal remedies and homeopathic remedies that can be of assistance; and acupuncture as well, but something like this needs the direct supervision of a trained veterinarian.

For a holistic veterinarian who practices Chinese medicine, homeopathy and acupuncture please check the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association's referral site.
