3. Intestinal Comfort

When your pooch is suffering from an upset stomach, catnip will be able to provide your animal with instant relief, especially when they're feeling gassy. When ingested, it'll help reduce cramps and spasms, diarrhea, dyspepsia, and prevent your dog from vomiting.

4. Easing Menstruation

For female canines, catnip has the power to ease the pain they experience when they are on their period, by stimulating blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus. While it also helps regulate their menstrual cycle, catnip should never be given to dogs while they are pregnant.

5.  Healing Wounds

If your dog has come home with external wounds, catnip can act as an antiseptic. It contains the compound thymol, which makes it ideal to apply on cuts, scratches, or sores.

BONUS: Applying catnip to your four-legged friend creates an effective deterrent against hungry mosquitoes and fleas.
