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.

Pets and Fireworks-How to soothe your pets nerves naturally at Guy Fawkes

Pets and fireworks are usually a pretty bad mix. Using herbal remedies to help your pets at this stressful time can be hugely beneficial. Herbs for human health are becoming more and more popular each day.  Health shops are packed with herbal tonics to cleanse our bodies and build our immune system.  However, finding herbs to help your pets can be slightly more tricky so you may not have even thought about using herbs for your animal's health. 

 Pets and Fireworks-How to soothe your pets nerves naturally at guy Fawkes

Did you that long before humans lived on this planet, wild animals survived by using plants for their healing properties.  Our modern-day medicine is mainly derived from nature and scientists have spent years mimicking the active elements found in herbs.   Therefore what is available to reunite our animals with what nature intended?  

Guy Fawkes has long been a terrifying week in the life of many pets. With the constant threat of loud bangs and explosions you will find many dogs and cats cowering in complete anxiety with little means of escape.

Where-as humans might reach in the cupboard for a cup of Chamomile tea or a rescue remedy to calm the nerves, a dog or cat can also benefit from natural remedies. Natural alternatives such as calming herbs can be given to your dog or cat to provide relief from overstretched nerves. Herbs can be used as a gentle sedative, giving the animal some extra resources to survive this stressful time of year.

Herbs such as chamomile, vervain, lemon balm, and skullcap have been used for centuries as calming nerve tonics. They are said to help re-balance the nervous system and can be a wonderful natural method of soothing an emotional upset or case of anxiety.

 Supplementing a dog or cats' diet with calming herbs can be an important part of a happy pets life. “Herbs can be a safe and natural way of improving your animal's sense of enjoyment in life.  They are also packed with vitamins and minerals that help work towards a balanced nervous system”. 

 Dogs that are hyperactive or are nervous can often have an unbalanced internal system. This sometimes affects the skin, behaviour, and digestion.   A mixture of calming herbs will help soothe the nervous system and aid digestion.  The herbs also work by relaxing the muscles and the gut without causing the drowsy state that conventional sedatives can induce”. 

 Supplementing a pet's diet with herbal supplements can help fitness, vitality and their general health. The active elements in herbs work by supporting the liver, digestive system, lymphatic and urinary system, thus strengthening and building the immune system.

 Today’s modern dog has to cope with a number of stressful situations, and Guy Fawkes is just one of them.  This can have an effect on a dog’s happiness and health and the use herbs can be an effective tool for dealing with this. Using herbs for your dog’s health can also provide lifelong benefits.  Auckland based vet Jim Powell from Vets’ Corner in Takanini explains; “One of the advantages of using herbal supplements is that they allow for early intervention before clinical signs become severe. Medicinal herbs are a time-honored tradition and when used in conjunction with modern science have proven to be extremely beneficial to our four-legged friends”.  

 If you have a fearful pet around this time of year, you could consider adding calming herbs to their diet. I would recommend feeding these herbs for the week or two leading up to Guy Fawkes and of course, make sure your precious pet is kept safely inside with a good place to hide on the night.
