Vesica tablets are an ideal supplement when your pet is having problems with the bladder or urinary tract. Vesica, with its special complex of valuable botanical ingredients, has been shown to have a long-term supportive effect on the physiological alimentation and function of the uro-epithelia. Vesica can be added as a supplement to regular dog food as well as to special dietary dog food to support the treatment of the bladder or urinary tract. Vesica has a similar effect as a high dosage of herbal bladder tea. Vesica should be used over a long period of time.
Bearberry extract (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi folium)
The positive effects of the bearberry, in treating dogs bladder problems, can be traced back to its arbutin components. The compound arbutin is metabolised into aglyconic hydrochinon in a dogs body.
Dandelion extract (Taraxacum officinale)
Dandelions, especially its roots, have a diuretic effect. The sesquiterpentalactone and the high level of potassium contained in the plant are likely responsible for this effect.
Cranberry extract (Vaccinium macrocarpon fructus)
The special properties of cranberries inhibit the adhesion of uropathogens in the urinary tract. The flavonoid Proanthocyanidin, a secondary plant compound, is responsible for the cranberries effect. Proanthocyanidin can inhibit bacteria from attaching themselves to the walls of the urinary tract.
