While a good diet, herbal remedies and supplementation go a long way to prevent illness, we do stress that if your pet is in discomfort, pain or presenting with symptoms, your first obligation is to seek veterinary advice and treatment particularly for acute conditions. There are times when you might like to use herbal remedies. If you do, however, always check with your vet if you plan to administer herbal extracts with veterinary medication.
A point worth noting is that human medicines should not be administered to your pets.
The following topics will be covered under the “Conditions” section.
