My pet Gigi got a bad diarrhea (which is rare) couple of weeks ago. Since I am not a Vet. doctor, I decided to seek medical treatment. She was given some medications to stop diarrhea and probiotics. She recovered after about a week. However, the diarrhea came back with same intensity. She did not seems to be sick; jumping around and eating well.
It was at this time I decided to be her herbalist. The weather was quite cool and I figured out that she was suffering from a ‘cold’ stomach (in herbalist’s term). I gave her a garlic extract standardized to alliin 12mg. After 2 days she completely recovered with no symptoms of diarrhea to date.
Indeed, there is a great deal of potential in treating animals with herbs. For example (upon special request), I have treated pets with urinary tract infection with great success. Since day 1, Gigi was also given herbs to rid herself of worms without pharmaceutical drugs and she is still a healthy old lady i.e. more than 10 years old.
