Natural remedies and alternative therapies can complement traditional veterinary or medical care. If you or your pet is sick, injured, on medication, or you have any other concerns, you can check with your vet or medical professional prior to offering the remedy or therapy. Be aware that your vet or medical professional may advise you to not use the natural/holistic/alternative remedy or therapy. It may be because they believe it could harm you or your pet (such as there could be a negative reaction with a medication you or your pet is on now) or they are not familiar with the remedy or therapy (most vets and medical professionals do not learn about natural remedies and therapies in veterinary or medical school and have to take additional courses to do so). Your vet or medical professional is you and your pet's friend and should have you and their best interest at heart. Do your homework and explore your options. If you or your pet are seriously ill or have a life-threatening condition, please always seek proper veterinary or medical care.
