Goldenseal is a plant that’s been used by Native Americans since the 1800s to treat all kinds of ailments in people and animals, including liver problems, kidney infections, heart disease, cancer and more. While goldenseal has a long history of traditional use, modern science hasn’t yet determined exactly how it works or which specific compounds are responsible for its healing properties.

In dogs, goldenseal can be used to treat bacterial infections such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. It also helps relieve skin inflammation caused by allergies and insect bites. And studies show that it can help fight off parasites like ticks and fleas that cause skin irritation in dogs.
