Health Benefits of Catnip for Cats and Dogs!

Picture this: you, on the couch, with a bag of freshly opened catnip in one hand, and your cat in full-blown "feline frenzy" mode. As your furry buddy goes full acrobat, you can't help but chuckle at the absurdity of the situation. It's like watching a little feline Cirque du Soleil in your living room! They zoom around with a level of enthusiasm that makes you question whether they've secretly been training for a kitty Olympics and then crash into a ball of contented and relaxed purrs. You're tempted to take out your phone and start recording their antics because, honestly, they could be the next viral sensation. But remember folks, what happens at the catnip party stays at the catnip party!

It’s time to unpack the secret wonders of this natural herb.


We all know that cats love catnip and have a ton of fun with it and here’s why. But did you know that it also has some medicinal health properties?

Here are some of the wonderful benefits your kitty can enjoy.

  1. Catnip is super healing and soothing for the gastrointestinal tract so, if your cat (or even your dog) has an upset stomach for any reason you can add catnip to their diet as a treat to play with or just sprinkle it right into their food and this will help to soothe their stomach troubles. 
  2. When you first give catnip to your pet they get wild and revved up and play a lot, but after those initial hyper effects wear off they tend to get into a calm emotional state. So for any cats that suffer from stress or anxiety, catnip can soothe them, and it's a good idea to give them some fresh catnip treats every day - it will work as a natural anti-anxiety remedy.

I give my kitty Stubbin some of our Renewed Pet brand catnip every single day and he loves it!

So go ahead and give this green goodness of catnip to your kitties - their body and mind will thank you!


Keep giving your pets the best of natural life!
