If you are unfamiliar with herbs or don’t know what they can do for your health, we strongly suggest that you seek a professional herbalist’s advice before using them. Herbs are classified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as foods, not drugs. However, many herbs have medicinal value, so professional advice should be sought before diagnosing ills or prescribing for pets. Due to recent government legislation, Whiskers cannot freely list all the benefits associated with our herbs (as well as many other products listed in our catalog). For specific uses, please refer to our book list.
