Herbal medicine utilizes naturally occurring active ingredients found in either whole plants or their parts to offer therapeutic influence in the body.
Herbal therapy in veterinary medicine has a long history of effective and safe treatment for a variety of conditions and illnesses including:
- Skin allergies
- Digestive disorders
- Kidney and liver disease
- Heart disease
- Pain management
As a part of an integrative approach to veterinary healthcare, herbal medicine can stand alone in the treatment of chronic and acute illnesses, or complement conventional medicine to provide a customized approach to care.
