    Hello,

    My friend wanted me to ask has anyone used any organic herbs for their pets? Either adding it to their food, tablets, liquid or teas? she is looking into a herb called Anise Hyssop and Echinacea for her doggies.

    Any suggestions for her?

    Imo, her money would be better spent by taking her pet/pets to the vet once a year for an exam and lab work (as recommended by the vet)

    Supplements are not always benign, some have side effects. I would never use those things mentioned.

    Hyssop is not an herb I would recommend, Echinacea is something occasionally used when necessary. I suggest your friend buy a book on herbs for dogs – either Dr Randy Kidd’s book on herbs or Gregory Tilford’s book on herbs, both are worth having and give correct,safe info.

    I’ve used herbs before under the guidance of an herbalist who knew what was safe, and what was not. Herbal doesn’t automatically equal safe, though they can be twice as effective as conventional medication when used correctly.

    I’d encourage your friend to research, research, and research some more and find someone who knows herbs like the back of their hand that would be a good in-person mentor to help her along her journey, and ignore the skeptics who consider herbs as “magic potions.”
