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.

 

Herbal Treatments for Your Dog's Crohn's Disease

Herbal Treatments for Your Dog's Crohn's Disease

The great shift to herbal treatments for medical conditions has naturally flowed into the treatment for our best friends—our dogs. Crohn’s disease is just as debilitating in dogs as it is in humans. It’s incurable in both humans and dogs, but isn’t fatal in humans. Crohn’s disease in dogs can be fatal without proper care. 

What is Canine Crohn’s Disease? 

Crohn’s disease is inflammation of the intestinal lining and stomach. Causes include autoimmune issues, infectious agents, issues with nutrition and heredity. It is one of several inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) that affects dogs. The intensity of the disease can be controlled, but there’s no cure. 

Symptoms and Signs

Symptoms can be as minor as occasional diarrhea, listlessness and weight loss to obvious acute pain and bleeding from both ends. Chronic vomiting indicates inflammation of the upper digestive tract while diarrhea is a sign of lower intestinal inflammation. When either of these symptoms occurs and can’t be explained, your pet is more than likely suffering from Crohn’s. 

Traditional Treatments 

Traditional treatments include antibiotics to treat infections, drugs that rid the colon of parasites, anti-diarrheal drugs, and other drugs that may or may not work coupled with severe side effects. Surgery is also performed in severe cases and as a last resort. 

Herbal Remedies

Herbal remedies have been developed in order to avoid harmful chemical treatments. It’s no surprise that herbal supplements that help humans manage the symptoms of Crohn’s disease also work for dogs. 

  • Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation.
  • Prebiotics produce a healthy environment for good bacteria to grow in the digestive tract.
  • Probiotics are the source of good bacteria.
  • Licorice is another natural ingredient that has anti-inflammatory properties and acts as a tonic.
  • Slippery elm is an amazing natural ingredient that helps in digestion.
  • Marshmallow is another healthy herb that aids in digestion.

A healthy diet that’s free of excess fat and regular exercise round out the herbal treatment of Crohn’s disease in dogs. A healthy diet includes 20 percent protein and the rest healthy vegetables and carbohydrates.

It’s possible to help your IBD dog live a normal life when you manage his symptoms with herbal remedies.
