Thinking of Treating Your Dog Yourself?

A large number of herbal and nutrient supplements are available over-the-counter from supermarkets, health food stores, pharmacies and online. Many of these products can be sub-standard in quality with low levels of active ingredients and large amounts of ‘cheap fillers’. Furthermore, a large number of supplements are manufactured overseas in countries that do not follow the strict manufacturing guidelines that Australian manufacturers must follow.

In addition, we do not recommend the self-prescribing of herbal medicines for dogs as medicinal herbs can be dangerous when incorrectly given or at the very least, may be ineffective. Many substances deemed to be safe in humans may be toxic or even fatal to other species. We only recommend the use of herbal medicines and nutrient therapies for dogs when they have been prescribed by a well-qualified animal naturopath or animal herbalist who has trained for many years and has knowledge of the safest and most effective natural medicines for your pet. Animal Naturopaths should also work in collaboration with your veterinarian for the benefit of your dog.

For a diagnosis of your dogs health problems or in the case of an emergency please seek the advice of a veterinarian.


PLEASE NOTEI am not currently consulting due to my ongoing commitment to researching and writing in the field of animal health science and naturopathic animal care.


If your dog is suffering from a skin condition, hot spots, excessive paw licking, allergies, yeast infection or arthritis you may find the solutions you are seeking in my eBook ‘Heal Your Dog Naturally’ which is available here:

I hope my eBook helps you to heal your dog naturally!

The Dog Naturopath

Natural Animal Health for pets, specialising in natural health for dogs. Naturopathic dog therapy with a holistic approach to animal health may complement conventional vet treatments. We offer expert naturopathic advice for dogs from a qualified animal naturopath that specializes in natural dog health. We are based in South Australia's Adelaide Hills region but consult throughout Australia and internationally, with clients in South Australia, Queensland, Victoria, the ACT, NSW, the NT, Tasmania, Western Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the US and other countries throughout the world. While we specialise in dogs health problems and natural animal therapy we also treat people with naturopathic medicine and offer clinic services in natural health. Many clients have found natural animal therapy to be more effective or less invasive than conventional vet services. Our clients have a common interest in the health and wellbeing of their dog and are looking for natural preventative health programs and natural remedies for dogs such as herbal medicines and homeopathy that are often not offered by veterinary practices or veterinarian clinics in Australia and New Zealand. Canine natural pain relief and natural animal therapy for inflammation are common conditions that may benefit from naturopathic animal health treatments and holistic pet care.
