    DefaultHolistic remedies?

    I'm not sure yet what the vet will do for Buford but I was wondering if anyone uses alternative methods for illness? It would be for Buford's kidneys. My brother is a bit of an herbalist so I am waiting for him to get back to me. Any thoughts?

    I know from trying them for human maladies, for the most part, I wasn't impressed for cures. I do think that many can help prevent things. Just my .02 worth.

    My dogs see a holistic vet and we have had great success with herbal supplements. It's certainly worth a try, IMO.

    I used Holistic for Kassa when she had cancer.

    I am going to give Ernie accupunture for his hips.

    I don't know if holisitc remedies work, but it is worth a try.

    The theory my consulting (by telephone) holistic/alternative veterinarian subscribes to is that herbals are not "cure alls" but rather nutritional support to augment any conventional treatment and/or to allow the body to fully use it's own immune system to heal itself.

    I would strongly suggest you use/consult an herbalist that is also a licensed veterinarian.

    But I say go for it. Alternative medicine gave my Pharaoh Hound and additional 6 months of very high quality life and my Lab Auggie at this moment is doing very well on her alternative nutritional prescriptions to aid her in living with her diagnosed hepatocellular carcinoma. Auggie had her spleen removed 4Oct06, and was also diagnosed with "liver cancer" at that time.
