Herbal medicine is the practice of using products derived from plants for medicinal purposes. While this treatment approach has been around since prehistoric times, it’s only recently that veterinarians have started embracing this alternative medicine. This is partly due to the increasing number of pet owners’ first-hand experience with alternative medicine, prompting them to opt for a more holistic and non-invasive therapeutic approach for their pets.
What is Herbal Medicine?
Herbs are plants containing active therapeutic ingredients. The therapeutic elements are typically in specific parts of the plant. In some cases, the entire plant is the medicine. Herbal medicines can be consumed in various forms, including granules, teas, fresh herbs, tinctures, oils, or dried herbs. Herbs may be commercially available as capsules, liquid extracts, tablets, creams, or lotions. Herbal therapy utilizes one or more herbs for healing purposes.
