Glandular therapy is the practice of using whole animal tissues and glands to support or stimulate the proper functioning of a pet’s internal organs.
The theory of glandular therapy is that the “like” necessitates “like” treatment. For example, with kidney disease, the patient needs kidney tissue. Glandulars, most commonly derived from cows, sheep and pigs, contain vitamins, minerals, peptides, enzymes, and other nutrients, specific to each organ. Organs most commonly used include the pituitary, thyroid, live, heart, kidney, pancreas or thymus.
Dr. Turenne has seen kidney values, liver values and other blood parameters consistently improve with glandulars. But it is the sustained and significant improvement she has seen with her patient’s overall wellness which has confirmed to her that glandulars work and are a vital part of treating disease and maintaining health.
