For thousands of years, herbs and plants have been used for medicinal purposes all over the world. Modern pharmaceuticals evolved from herbal medicine, but today’s medications are typically the result of isolated compounds. In herbal medicine, it is believed that whole plants are able to provide a broad spectrum of desirable effects.
It is important to recognize that herbals should be treated as medications, and not dietary supplements. Herbals should be used only under the guidance of a knowledgeable medical professional.
At Renewed Animal Wellness, our veterinarians use Dr. Xie’s Jing Tang Herbal based in Reddick, FL. These herbals are manufactured under strict regulations and standards.
