Frequently Asked Questions!
Are Herbs Safe For Dogs?
Herbs have been used in dogs for thousands of years and have wide margins of safety. In fact the first Chinese herb books, written thousands of years ago, focused on dogs and horses. Human issues weren't addressed until much later. Dr. Jones has used these herbs in his veterinary practice for years.
How Do I give Herbs To My Dog?
Most dogs will eat powdered herbs if mixed with a little wet food. See Product pages for suggested dosing.
Can I use more than one HerbPet formula at a time?
Any of the HerbPet formulas can be used simultaneously as needed.
Can these HerbPet formulas be used in pregnant or nursing dogs?
Each formula page states whether that formula can be used during pregnancy or lactation.
Can I use HerbPet formulas in cats?
All of the formulas are safe for and have been used by Dr. Jones in cats. Sometimes cats are very resistant to voluntarily eating herbs. Others are really cooperative about it. Try mixing them with some strong-smelling wet cat food. Use the same dosing table listed on each product page for dogs.
