Herbal MedicineImage of herbs in a mortar with pestle

The use of herbs and plants for medicinal purposes has been practiced for thousands of years all over the world. Veterinary herbal medicines include North American herbs, Aryuvedic herbs from India, traditional Chinese herbs, and other herbs from across the globe.

Herbs have therapeutic qualities that are capable of balancing the emotional, mental and physical states of animals. These remedies do not mask or suppress symptoms, as is the case with many Western veterinary medications; herbs treat the deepest constitutional causes of illness. The onset of symptoms is the body's indication that it's trying to heal itself, therefore traditional Western medications that inhibit or control symptoms can actually interfere with healing. In addition, harmful side-effects are common with many Western veterinary medications, and by contrast, natural herbs are very well-tolerated.

Coastal Holistic practitioners are experienced in both herbal therapy and homeopathy, and as licensed DVMs, we are uniquely positioned to understand – and minimize – possible interactions between herbs and any conventional Western medications your pet may need.

Herbs are an indispensable part of any holistic healthcare regimen, and here at Coastal Holistic we strive to provide the safest, highest-quality herbal products from well-known and trusted manufacturers.
