Leading veterinarians agree that our pets are simply not as healthy as they used to be. The prevalence of processed pet food with chemical additives, routine vaccinations with unknown side-effects and increasingly toxic air and water have combined to dramatically impact the health and well-being of our cats, dogs and horses. This has manifested itself in increased rates of pet cancer, other auto-immune disorders and an epidemic of lethargic, undernourished animals.
We pet owners have experienced similar issues in our own health as a result of changes in our diets and environment. In response, many of us have turned to organic foods and healthy herbal formulas to supplement our diets and support our health. Natural herbal remedies from places such as China, India and North America are now being used to address a wide variety of health conditions. However, while sales of herbal supplements for humans have increased more than ten-fold over the past few years, the awareness of natural herbs for our pets is only beginning.
Pet Herbs Direct is brought to you by the same company behind Chinese Herbs Direct and Ayurvedic Herbs Direct, the leading destinations for Chinese herbs and Ayurvedic herbs on the Internet. Though our previous herb stores market herbal formulas primarily for humans, we noticed that a significant number of our customers were seeking to use these same formulas to support the health of their pets. While the successful use of herbs for pets has been well established for thousands of years, we couldn't advocate the use of our human herbal formulas for pets due to concerns over appropriate ingredients and dosages for pets. Simply put, some herbal ingredients and dosages may be beneficial for humans, but toxic for a pet.
In response to growing demand for established herbal formulas specifically created for pets, we established Pet Herbs Direct in 2006. Pet Herbs Direct now sells several lines of safe and effective herbal formulas for dogs, cats and other domestic animals - and we're adding new products every week. Our mission at Pet Herbs Direct is to promote the use of natural pet herbs to support the health and enhance the well being of your trusted pet. We welcome your comments or suggestions by contacting us.
