Herb Vet

VETERINARY HERBAL MEDICINE (veterinary phytotherapy), derived from that used by human civilisations from before recorded times, is a time-honoured ancestor of many aspects of modern drug medicine. However, unlike its modern descendant, it was holistically applied.

Herbs are the oldest form of therapy known to mankind. Herb medicine probably started in humans, just as in animals, as an instinctive process.

Herbal medicine has very wide capability, in most species and is a holistic practice, when used properly, taking into account diet, environment and lifestyle. All human cultures have a herbal medicine culture, with Westerm Herbal Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine and African indigenous medicine being perhaps the most well-known in our 'Western' world.

It is important to remember that herbs provided finite doses of biologically and biochemically active substances, which must be used only by skilled operators, in order to avoid interactions or dangerous summations with conventional drugs. Because there is a finite dose, food residues can accumulate, in the products of food animals. Furthermore, use in sporting animals could give rise to 'doping' risk.

Herbal medicine is suitable for dogs, cats, horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, cattle, sheep, pigs, birds, poultry and other animals. It is wise to seek the advice of an experienced herbal vet and it is illegal for non-vets to prescribe herbs in the UK.

Aromatherapy is an offshoot of herbal medicine and its substances are extremely powerful medical agents, not without risk. Always consult a veterinary surgeon with appropriate skills, if seeking herbal or aromatherapy help for your animal.

Another off-shoot of traditional herbal medicine is the non-holistic modern practice of extracting and purifying the supposed 'active ingredients. We believe that there are dangers attaching to this practice which do not arise with holistic traditional herbal medicine.

At the AVMC, we use herbs in a holistic and traditional way.
