Pet Corner: 7 Herbal Antibiotics for Pets

Try these herbal antibiotics for pets to keep your furry friends healthy.



The litany of reasons not to use synthetic antibiotics for your pets has filled whole books. Here, we’ll just list a few of the major ones.
Chamomile is a wonderful calming herb with mild sedative, antispasmodic and carminative (relieving stomach gas and pain) activities.
The two most popular mints are peppermint (Mentha ×piperita) and spearmint (M. spicata). They have calming effects on the gastrointestinal tract.
Supplement your pet’s diet with beneficial bacteria whenever antibiotics are being used.
