Common Uses

Parsley root is a great diuretic to help treat rheumatoid conditions like arthritis.

Parsley is highly nutritious, and is a good source of protein and vitamins. Its combination of nutrients makes it a good addition for treating anemia.

Parsley may help boost kidney function in early-onset kidney failure. It can also help treat flatulence and colic. Its antiseptic properties are good for treating urinary tract infections.


For treating arthritis, give a strong tea of the dried or freshly grated root at a rate of 1 teaspoon per day for cats, 1-2 tablespoons for dogs. A tincture can also be used at a rate of 1-2 millilitres per 30 pounds of the animal’s body weight.

For gastric or urinary disorders, blend the parsley in a blender to make a dark green soup. Add the soup to your animal’s drinking water, or feed to them directly. 1 teaspoon per 20 pounds of the animal’s body weight is a good dose.
