The University of Tennessee’s Integrative Medicine service is a new and growing branch of the College of Veterinary Medicine. According to a recent press release by NHV Natural Pet Products, as part of the program, NHV’s products and their uses are now discussed with students and then introduced into conventional therapy plans.

Having used the formulas on patients suffering from a variety of ailments, including cardiacissues, endocrine disease, chronic dermatitis, cancer, and geriatric-related symptoms, Dr. Donna M. Raditic, DVM, DACVN, CVA has stated that NHV products decrease the amounts of conventional medications required by a patient, leading to better outcomes overall.

How herbal remedies work:

From a holistic standpoint, herbal remedies target the root of a problem within an animal and help eliminate discomfort. In contrast to many pharmaceutical medications, herbal remedies have fewer side effects, and therefore less risk is associated with their incorporation into a health regime.

As with all herbal remedies, do your research to be sure you are buying a superior grade product. Also be sure to consult with your family veterinarian first before administering any herbal product to your pet.
