My mare develops a strong head flick in the spring & summer. Giving her the Sneeze Free formula every day cuts her symptoms down considerably.

My horse (a 24 year old mare) has always suffered from stiff joints. I have been feeding her Brookby Herbs' Free Mover and she's now running around like a two year old. She's a quite a different horse altogether - even the Vet can't believe the difference. I swear by it.

I have been feeding Brookby Herbs Echinacea Organic Plus and the Herbal Health blend to my Grand Prix show jumpers for the last two years and I have been most impressed with the results. We used Echinacea Organic Plus for respiratory problems and found a remarkable improvement in the horses health. It also appeared to build the immunity to the many bugs that are now prevalent amongst horses. I am now a convert to natural products, especially Echinacea Organic Plus and I would strongly recommend the use of Brookby Herbs' products.

Agility in Dogs Can be Improved with Natural Herbs

For thousands of years, the Khoisan peoples of the Kalahari Desert have used devil's claw root in remedies for treating pain and in topical ointments for treating skin problems. Agility in dogs requires them to be fit and healthy. To have supple joints and to be pain-free. Herbs can be used to maintain healthy joints by reducing inflammation and quietly working on the body through a natural diet.

Devil's claw is the common name for Harpagophytum procumbens and belongs to the sesame family. Originally from southern Africa and Madagascar, Devil's Claw is now found in the savannahs and on the outskirts of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa and Namibia. Devil's claw is also an effective therapy for degenerative musculoskeletal conditions (disorders of the locomotive system). It is also used as a pain reliever (analgesic), sedative, and diuretic.

The active ingredients in Devil's Claw are harpagoside and beta-sitsterol. The British Herbal Pharmacopoeia recognises Devil's Claw as having pain-killing properties and diuretic properties which makes it a useful herb for inflammatory conditions that are retaining fluids. Studies in animals have shown that devil's claw reduces the inflammation associated with arthritis. 

Agility dog clubs will have information on how dogs joints can be affected. It can be upsetting when you see the agility in dogs diminished. If you have an older dog that is starting to slow down then you may wish to consider how herbs can be incorporated into your dog's diet and discussing it with the agility dog club members will give you other ideas about what can be done.


Dogs that suffer from stiff joints can benefit from herbs in many ways that possibly you hadn’t thought of before. They can provide a means of enhancing your dogs’ quality of life by providing a safe form of flexibility and movement in the joints, critical to a dogs’ enjoyment of life.

Stiff Joints can be as debilitating for animals as they are for humans and maintaining a healthy body before the onset of illness is an important part of preserving the quality of life.

Herbal supplements that are completely natural and without the side effects often associated with synthetic drugs are fabulous for agility in dogs and specifically for dog agility training. These herbs are also ideal for the older dog to help keep joints supple and help create good circulation. To help maintain joints, muscles and connective tissue in a strong and healthy condition, there are herbal extracts which are perfect for the older dog and ideal for the competitive dog as well.

Agility in dogs can be improved with natural herbs.

  •     For the nutritional maintenance of the musculoskeletal system
  •     Give old dogs a new lease of life
  •      Enhance free movement and flexibility of joints
  •     Natural joint maintenance
  •     Prepare for dog agility training to make your dog a natural champion

The following herbs are ideal for maintaining a healthy muscular-skeletal system

  • Devil's Claw - anti-inflammatory and natural painkiller
  • Meadowsweet - great for reducing acidity in the body which is thought to contribute to arthritis
  • Willow Bark - natural aspirin and painkiller
  • Hawthorn - increases circulation and strengthens the heart
  • Nettle - increases circulation and high in iron

Therefore if your dog is starting to show the signs of aging why not add some nutritious herbs for maintenance and to of course improve the agility in dogs. Speak with other members of the agility dog clubs as well to see what is being done.
