What Doctors Don't Tell You Australia/NZ

Herbal helpers for your pet

In the natural world, animals self-medicate with a variety of plant material to help them survive. But as our companion animals are reliant on us for most of their needs, here’s a selection of healing plant remedies for you to have on hand in your kitchen to help your cat or dog.

These remedies have been tried and tested for more than two decades on our own pets, at rescue centers all over the world and in our own private practices.

When it comes to more serious medical conditions, these simple plant remedies are not a substitute for veterinary treatment, but remember that conventional and holistic treatment go hand in hand—both are vital for the health and wellbeing of your pet.
