Our dogs are so much part of our family that we often run to the vets at the first sign of anything unusual. In addition, modern vet practices have evolved so much that they are able to help our dogs with a variety of health conditions. However, there are times when we dog owners are probably right to consider other natural and herbal alternatives rather than pharmaceuticals because we know that every drug has a side effect and surgery can have long recovery periods.
Doing our best for our dogs is a personal choice but knowing what alternatives are out there is wise especially when there are natural alternatives to helping with skin problems, joint pain or strengthening of joints as well as digestive or kidney/liver issues.
In the past 5 years, an increasing number of herbal treatments have come onto the market and become popular and widely used. Pet owners are enjoying the benefits they bring and they are helping to improve the quality of many pets' lives. However, if in doubt, I always recommend checking with your vet first. It’s also important to remember that some herbs can be harmful to dogs but know that supplements and natural options like Nature’s Moor have never been found to be harmful.
