For the last year I’ve been working with Jodie from Vet 2 Pet – she is a Holistic Vet who uses acupuncture, speciality physio to aid rehab, & nutrition. For the last year we have also been working together using herbal medicine to help your furry friends.
Just like you….herbs can be used to help many of their ailments. I concoct a herbal tincture which can be added to their food, or use tablet or powder form if preferred – for a range of ailments.
But you can easily use fresh/dried herbs in their food too for some simple relief:
Chamomile: a bitter & relieves spasms – great for digestion; is anti-inflammatory & antimicrobial (great as an infusion/tea to wash wounds); plus calms the nervous system.
Lavender: mood elevator & calming; antibacterial; gentle pain reliever & anti-itch (soak flowers in warm water & use as a body rinse).
Slippery Elm Powder: soothes, protects & reduces inflammation of the digestive tract (great to add 1/4tsp per 10kg dog to food) – think diarrhoea or constipation. Plus it’s nutritious with Vit A, B’s, C & K, & calcium, magnesium & sodium.
If you’d like some help with your furry friend….give me a call & I’ll see how I can support them too!!
