OUR MAJOR NATURAL THERAPIES

Herbal Medicine

This is the oldest medicine known to both animals and people and has served us well for millennia.

Herbs are preparations of botanical origin.  The word “botanical” is used because it refers to ALL plant remedies, which may include seaweeds, lichens, ferns and trees as well as the type of plant more commonly called ‘herbs’.

Extraction of many plant constituents is made using alcohol.  Because we do not want alcohol in our animal medicines we use a form of herbal preparation that borrows some of the principles of homeopathy, making these preparations safe, easy to use, palatable and more economic, requiring less raw material from endangered herbs. This form of herbal medicine is known as homeobotanicals.

Combing Ancient Wisdom with New-Age Science

Herbal medicine has its origins in ancient times and is well proven through the centuries, both with people and their animals.  Animal doctors were not around so people had to rely on the herbs of the countryside to care for their precious farm animals. Homeopathy had its beginnings with Hippocrates ‘ like cures like’ (-370 BC)  but it wasn’t until Hahnemann (1755 AD) developed the system of succussion and dilution that a whole new dimension in healing power was created. 

Combine these two powerful mediums and their synergy reaches new heights in providing safe and effective treatment for our animals.

Herbal Remedies

Using herbs as part of the healing process means taking part in the  world’s ecological cycle, it offers the opportunity to consciously participate in the living  vibrant relationships between man, animal, plant and planet. Plant  Medicine is the most ancient of medicines, used by every living being on  earth, taught to man by the animals. It is rather ironic that the  animals are now the very ones who suffer because they no longer have  access to their natural medicines, or their knowledge has been lost in  the process of domestication. It is our responsibility to offer it back  to our animal friends, not as a manufactured sanitised drug but as the  olde healing, restorative herbal medicine applied with new  administrative technology.

Success Stories – Meet Cosmo

Cosmo was discharged from a veterinary specialist center following a bout of gastroenteritis. An enema had produced pieces of rubber (?) and a further abdominal ultrasound did not reveal any more. He was treated with i.v. fluids, analgesia and anti nausea medication and recommended a Prescription Gastrointestinal diet. Cosmo refused to eat. Cosmo’s diarrhea continued following discharge, with straining and passing frequent small reddish watery stools. Owner was concerned about the health of his gut after days of straining, vomiting and diarrhea. Cosmo was given herbs for his digestion, diarrhea and liver, some Slippery Elm to help soothe and heal the gut lining and a combination of homeopathics.

Within the infant rind of this small flower Poison hath residence, and medicine power.
