Herbs are nature’s way of taking care of its inhabitants. Herbs/Essential Oils have been used for thousands of years to help cure illnesses and aid in relieving symptoms. Horses/Dogs are very intelligent animals and their bodies will tell them which herb they need. For example you will read that some herbs offer similar benefits however some animals will take to one herb but not another. It is all about preference and what their body needs. It is interesting to learn about the effects a small herb can have on such a large animal. It goes to show that great things do come in small packages!
All the following information about herbs is for informational purposes and does not replace veterinarian advice or care. Herbs are amazing and provide a lot of benefits but sometimes "medicine" is needed in emergencies because of the fast response. If you have any questions about adding an herb to your horse’s or animal’s diet please consult your vet or contact me. Also if your four legged child is on any medicine check with your vet before adding any herbs. Although they are natural some can be dangerous if not used correctly.
If you have found an herb that works great on animals please contact me! I love to learn how other people use herbs for their animals. I will continue to share my favorites here. Contact me for a consultation on herb supplementation.
