Adding herbs to your dog’s diet can have a huge impact on his health and wellbeing…
But… Yes, there is a BUT…
To use herbs at their best potential you must first take on an overall natural approach that cares for your dog’s general wellbeing, including body, mind and spirit.
The essence of complete wellness is… A Good Diet.
Without a healthy and balanced nutrition, the use of herbs for medicinal purposes will end up being a waste of money and time.
That said if you are providing your dog with a fresh and healthy diet, a safe environment, mental stimulation and physical excise, the use of herbs will go a long way!
A properly functioning and healthy body will be able to prevent diseases and heal itself. However, sometimes it will need an extra boost… That’s when herbs can become really effective, serving as a supplement to good nutrition and helping the body to use its natural resources more efficiently.
