Herbal Remedies

 

Herbal remedies come in various forms depending on what requires treating and the animal itself.  Sometimes a number of herbs are combined in a formula in order to address the body as a whole.  They may be combined to reduce the stress of giving medication so instead of trying to get your pet to swallow a number of different remedies it may be better to combine in a liquid form so they only need to swallow once.   Herbs are often used to support the body’s organs if the animal is on long-term prescription medicine.

Interaction with medicines

Some herbs interact with conventional medicine which is one of the main reasons I will need to know what medication your pet is on.  

Some herbs can do a similar job as some medication and effectively cause an overdose or they can counteract medication and effectively stop the medication from doing what it is supposed to do. 

This is especially so with heart medication. 

Therefore, it is very important I am told all medication your pet is taking, even other natural medicines or supplements.

 

Why it is not a good idea to buy something from the health shop yourself.
