- Remember that it
is important to muscle test to determine what is the best primary diet for
your animal first, and then muscle test to see if any supplements or herbs may
help. If you do not know how to muscle test, consider our instructional ebook.
- You will also
want to muscle test to determine how much you should give (amounts will vary
depending on type of animal and their condition) and for how long. You
can find recommendations online or check with your holistic vet.
- Keep in mind
that these traditional herbs are likely to be more gentle on your animal’s
stomach than Chinese herbs. But herbs are powerful so you will just want
to closely monitor your animal for any sensitivities.
