Our herbal remedies are combinations of herbs carefully selected by Ellen Collinson to give the best results. They cover wormers, anti-biotics, tonics, pain-killers, and several other supportive aids. I have equivalents for horses and for cats & dogs, their digestive systems being different.

Herbal remedies can help with the digestive, respiration, immune, reproductive & movement systems.
