Rhizoma coptidis natural alternative to ursodehydrocholic acid.
Dogs and cats have a variety of liver problems. Many of these relate to aging, and medications, germs, and viruses. Long ago, ancient people found benefits to health in “black bear gall bladder” gall. A lot of bears died. And there are still black bears in captivity with little tubes leading into their gall bladders draining a trickle of gall, all day long.
It’s truly bar-BEAR-ic. But it’s cheaper for those harvesters than killing a black bear whenever they need it. Laboratories can make black bear gall. (Ursodiol) And it works great. But in ‘traditional Chinese medicine’ doctors don’t want ‘artificial’ drugs. It’s thought that the spirit and strength of the bear is in the gall. Alright. Whatever.
So Chinese researchers started looking for other compounds as good as bear gall. They discovered a lot of things including Berberine, cow gall, and Rhizoma coptidis. The studies supposed that Rhizoma coptidis is actually BETTER than anything they tried. Great because that’s pretty cheap and easy to dose.
Availability: Rhizoma coptidis is available on Amazon.com in different sizes. You need the PURE POWDER version. Not the raw root. And not the ‘elixir’. The powdered root is pure Rhizoma coptidis and is easy to dose.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
