ProsPet Drops Herbal Remedy
The prostate is a small gland specific to male cats, located beneath the urinary bladder and wrapped around the urethra. It is made of two lobes completely surrounded by an outer tissue layer. The main function of the prostate is to store and secrete a clear, slightly alkaline fluid that constitutes 10-30% of the volume of the seminal fluid that, along with spermatozoa, constitutes semen. The rest of the seminal fluid is produced by the two seminal vesicles. The prostate also contains smooth muscles that help expel semen during ejaculation.
With the process of aging, it is quite common for a pet's prostate gland to become enlarged, just like a human's. This is particularly the case in more mature dogs over the age of 8 years old. In this process the prostate enlarges, with the layer of tissue surrounding the prostate ceasing to expand. This causes the prostate gland to press against the urethra like a clamp on a garden hose. The bladder wall becomes thicker and may begin to contract even when it contains small amounts of urine, leading to more frequent urination.
Although the reason is not fully understood, cats do not routinely suffer from problems related to age related prostate enlargement. However, some may, and this product can be safely given to cats.
Neutering may assist with the control and prevention of prostate problems in pets, and is urged for most cats to prevent the overpopulation that results in thousands of homeless cats being euthanized every year. But for people with purebred cats that are being bred, owners may not have this option available to them.
ProsPet Drops may also be used as an ongoing tonic for male pets over the age of 8 to assist in the maintenance of prostate health and has an excellent record in maintaining optimal prostate health in male dogs, especially for those owners who do not have their pets neutered.
A lot can be done to support a healthy prostate. Diet and exercise remain the biggest factors contributing to a healthy lifestyle. A meal plan high in fresh vegetables and fruits, legumes (peas, beans, and lentils), fresh fish (such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, and cod) will ensure adequate intake of essential fatty acids, important for organ functioning.
Avoiding fatty meats, excess salt, and hydrogenated oil will also go a long way in supporting the immune system. Physical exercise supports good circulation – helping to promote blood flow to all organs of the body, including the prostate.
Natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support the healthy functioning of the prostate and male reproductive system, while also acting as immune system tonics. In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom.
There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the healthy functioning of the prostate.
ProsPet Drops is a 100% herbal formula and contains the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage: Saw Palmetto (Sabal serrulata), Cleavers (Galium aperine), Echinacea (Echinacea purpuria).

Get optimum results with regular use. While conventional medicine works by often treating just the symptoms, natural medicine strives to create holistic balance. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, the natural ingredients in PetAlive remedies support overall health and functioning.
Caution: Please consult your veterinarian should symptoms persist. Safety during pregnancy and nursing has not yet been established. Like all good tonics, continued use of ProsPet will result in gradual improvement over time. However, one can expect to see a start of positive results within the first week, with continual improvement over a 3 - 6 week period.
