Yucca root is widely used in dog food as well as in other pet foods. It is a herb that is highly nutritive as it is rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, B vitamins, magnesium, iron, calcium, manganese, protein, niacin and phosphorus. Yucca contains two very beneficial compounds sarsasapogenin and smilagenin. These two compounds work on the mucous membranes of the small intestine. These compounds help with the penetration and absorption of minerals and vitamins.  Sarsasapogenin and Smilagenin are know as steroidal saponins (phytosterols) which act as precursors to corticosteroids produced naturally by the body. Steroidal saponins support the immune function of the body, while stimulating and supporting the production of its own corticosteroids and corticosteroid–related hormones. Due to this action, studies conducted on yucca have shown that it may be beneficial and effective for pain and inflammation in conditions such as arthritis. Yucca may also be supportive in stimulating the appetite and may also help reduce the production of urease, which contributes to the unpleasant odors of urine and feces in some dogs.

Yucca for dogs

To be taken twice daily. Determine your pet’s weight and then use the easy chart below to determine the correct dose. This is the minimum dosage.


Pet's Weight Dosage

0 - 15 lb = 0.5 ml

16 - 30 lb = 1.0 ml

31 - 45 lb = 1.5 ml

46 - 60 lb = 2.0 ml

61 - 75 lb = 2.5 ml

Over 75 lb = 3.0 ml

For small animals (rabbits, ferrets), avians and reptiles use 1 drop for every 2 lb of body weight. 

How to Administer: Shake well before use. The easiest method is to use the dropper provided and place the drops into your pet’s food or favorite treat. You can also use the dropper and squirt directly into the pet’s mouth. Some pets can be finicky, if this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods most pet’s love such as fish, chicken or yogurt or a favourite treat. If your pet only eats dry food then soak a few kibbles at feeding time.

For Best Results: Herbal dietary supplements are beneficial to the health and well-being of your pet and are safe for long-term use. Every pet responds to natural herbal supplements differently, therefore it is important to be consistent and administer the product daily. Supplements generally take two to four weeks to take effect, however this will vary from one animal to the next.

Cautions and Contraindications: Do not use Yucca in pregnant or nursing animals. Speak to your vet before using our products.

We purchased the Yucca and ES Clear. Our dog seems happier and is eating better. He was not eating well and had been sick. Both products are good for digestive issues. His bowel movements have been better as well. Our dog is a senior and I do believe the drops have helped give him some nutrients that he needed and was missing. I mix the drops with his food and he eats it well. Customer service has been really helpful, caring and understanding. We will continue to purchase the products. *

I am a HUGE fan of NHV Products. First discovered them when my 16 year old cat developed kidney failure. The only thing I did was add Tripsy to her diet – she lived until almost 21! My sister also had great success with her cat and Tripsy! So I am now using a variety of supplements for my 11 year old Goldie who has bone cancer – first diagnosed in January and going strong! I attribute this to NHV – I am currently giving him the ES Clear, BK Detox, Yucca and the Nature’s Immuno. And their customer service is outstanding. Any time I have written for advice I hear back either the same day or within 24 hours. When you have a dog that has a very serious condition it is so wonderful that I get such great response time and advice! I couldn’t ask for a better partner in my continued support for my Gus! THANK YOU NHV….and Johanna who has been a life saver in answering my questions and giving advice on their products! *

Our 170 lb 7 year old Newfoundland Harley Bear suffers from Hip dyspepsia. He has been able to walk and get around pretty well in the past. He recently slipped and fell and severely injured his hip and front leg? We found a mobile Vet who also does Chiropractics on animals. When she first came Harley Bears injuries were so severe the Vet had doubts on weather he could recover from his injuries. She adjusted him and put him on anti inflammatory meds as well as strong pain killers. After a few days he started improving. So we had hope and continued the adjustments from the Vet. He is making very good progress every week and we are now hopefull he will recover and continue on with his happy Newfie life. We had to get him off the pain meds as they were only for short term use and are harmful to a dogs internal organs. So prior to getting Harley Bear off the pain meds I emailed NHV natural pet products and explained our situation to one of the pet specialists. She recommended we put him on Yucca, Milk Thistle and Old Timer. So far I must say these Suppliments are really helping manage his pain now that he is off the pain meds. He rests peacefully at night and gets up easily for his outside breaks. He still has a long road to go, but with a very good Vet and the help of these supplements we are now confident he will recover! *

Fantastic Products! I have used Tripsy for my cat who lived to almost 21 with kidney disease - I have no doubt this product extended her life! I recommended that product to my sister who had a cat with the same disease and her cat lived to 19! I am now using several products for my 11 year old Goldie who was diagnosed with bone cancer in January - Natures Immuno, Yucca, ES Clear and BK Detox. Along with other supplements I give him (Turmeric w/Coconut Oil & Pepper, Joint Supplement, Astragulus, Probiotic, Fish Oil) and then with a grain-free and partially raw diet along with Raw Goat's Milk, he is doing very good! My Vet is amazed! I absolutely am a HUGE fan of the NHV Products - I truly believe they are helping my Gus! Thank you NHV and also Johanna who has always responded timely and with excellent advice! I would recommend their products to anyone! *

I have had Arson on Turmeric, Milk Thistle and Yucca for his after spinal surgery care to get him off of prescrip. meds. This has worked wonders for old Mr. Arson. The prescrip. meds were causing problems with his intestinal tract and that was not a pretty sight. Now he is "going" like a pro! And he acts like a puppy most days so we are all happy. *

I have a 16 year old cat with CKD - diagnosed 4 years ago. Tripsy has really helped Leo. When his appetite started to decline, I turned to NHV for solutions and found Yucca. It really has worked for him! Now, we have a very ill dog, Nitro (who has had success with NHV's Milk Thistle) whose appetite is waning. We have started Yucca with him as well and it seems to be helping. I have been happy with every NHV product I have used. *

Kathy & Ike - Sequim, Washington | January 18, 2017

Ike is a 100% Raw fed Yellow Lab who had TPLO surgery 3yrs ago. I wanted to add supplements to his diet that would help reduce his need for Nsaid medication. I worked long distance with Donna M. Raditic, D.V.M, C.V.A U of Tenn. to develop a diet that worked best for Ike's needs. Dr R highly recommended NHV supplements. I started with the Detox formula followed by Milk Thistle to cleanse Ike liver from any damage from all meds following his surgery. with a lengthy recoup time. I introduced STIMMUNE to boost his immune system since Ike seems to have a sensitivity to Gluten. Currently we are alternating between TURMERIC & OLD TIMER to assist his joints. When he over does it-(Ike was a Greyhound in his former life-) I add YUCCA into his daily supplements. I see a big difference in his recovery rate. I prefer the ease of adding a liquid herbal that is easy to dose and is well tolerated by my Lab. I'm particular about the supplements I use and I'm pleased that NHV products maintain high standards . I'm so happy that I was referred to NHV . Ike is now 6 and I expect will have many more years of running through the woods. I plan on continuing with NHV products for life. *

I love the NHV products. The Old Timer and Yucca were very helpful for my elderly collie's arthritis. I am currently using Trypsy, Milk Thistle, and Turmeric for my cat's renal issues. I believe that Trypsy along and sub q fluids have really kept my kitty alive and acting like he has not problems at all. *

Jerry - Toronto, ON | August 26, 2015

Our dog is making a miraculous comeback. We took her in for blood work last week, just 1 week after we started her on Tripsy, Resp-Aid, Yucca, and Mellit. To our surprise all of her blood levels dropped 50%. The vet was stunned as he was preparing us for the worst. She's more energetic now and improving everyday. We are scheduled for more blood work next week to make sure things are moving in the right direction. We can't thank you enough for your support and guidance and rushing the order to us over night. We are so lucky we found you. *

I have been using Yucca for several months now on several cats and 1 dog. I started using it for Fluffy, a former feral lady,who developed Inflammatory bowel disease. She was about 15 yrs. old and the effects of the illness were terrible diarrhea, weight loss, vomiting, and hairballs. She also lost her appetite. Her lovely, long, thick coat had become dull, thin,stringy. She simply felt and looked poorly. She would also develop constipation in between boots of diarrhea. She could not tolerate hairball meds or nutrical or pumpkin without more diarrhea. The vet put her on a small dose appetite stimulant, and meds to help with the intestine. Although these offered some help, it simply was not enough. After being on Yucca for 2 months or so the transformation was quite noticeable.The symptoms stopped, the lovely coat returned, she is now able to eat pumpkin when needed along with the nutrical. The hairballs are infrequent, her weight is up, and she is a much more content lady or now wants petting and combing as opposed to sleeping all day. It worked so well that I decided to give it to my 3 other older cats to help with digestion and app. stim. and to 1 dog who sometimes vomits due to allergies. We are all very happy with this product. *
