We stock a variety of quality western and Chinese herbal products. Animal Apawthecary is formulated by Greg Tilford, author of Herbs for Pets. Dr. Jodie has met and studied under Mr. Tilford who is a Master Herbalist and dog lover. His herbal formulations are glycerin extracts which are much more palatable to dogs and cats than are the human alcohol extracts.
Mediherb is the western herbal line affiliated with Standard Process. Standard Process is an extremely reputable international company locally based in Palmyra, Wisconsin with an organic farm and incredible manufacturing plant, which we have been fortunate to visit. The Mediherb products come from Australia where herbals are viewed as pharmaceuticals. They must prove safety and efficacy. Chiropractors and naturopaths have relied on these supplements formulated by the famous Dr. Royal Lee for over 75 years. We utilize the human line and the newer veterinary line for our dog and cat patients.
Natural Path is a Chinese herbal line formulated by Dr. Steve Marsden, a highly respected holistic veterinary colleague, Oriental Medical Doctor, and naturopathic physician. These herbals are prepared under the strictest of quality control measures. Dr. Jodie studied under Dr. Marsden at "A Time to Heal," an herbology teaching facility in Illinois.
Jing Tang is the Chinese herbal line formulated by the world renown, Dr. Huisheng Xie, an oriental veterinarian who was hired by the University of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine Neurology Department to perform acupuncture on expensive race horses. His work there was so successful, that two neurologists and others followed him to develop the Chi Institute, a most revered school for veterinarians who wish to become certified in acupuncture, herbology, food therapy or tui na. This is where Dr. Jodie became a certified Veterinary Acupuncturist and food therapist.
