Natural Pet Remedies store was created by Debs Chase-Paterson (Naturopath/Herbalist) in response to clients requesting natural remedies for pets (including natural flea control for dogs & cats).  Our remedies are based on natural home remedies for dogs & cats. Originally produced in 2011 then later rebranded under the Natural Pet Remedies Store website in 2018, we then incorporated the Happy Horse Herbals enabling 3 natural remedies for horses too. 

The Stiffness, aching, pain pet remedy was already being used as natural pain remedy for dogs & cats and then became suitable for natural pain relief for goats to support better mobility.  Being human herbs, pet owners started using this pet remedy so we rebranded by calling it Ouch - for all those ouch moments! 

Clients were reporting ongoing issues with itchy skin, joint mobility, stress when being left alone & intolerance to topical flea preparations.  Many clients requested a tonic for debilitated or run down pets plus a natural tonic for aging cats and dogs too. Among the requests for natural pet remedies, clients were highlighting the need for natural parasite herbs and a natural home remedy for flea control for pets. Thus Natural Pet Remedies Store was created to meet this need.

Customer feedback demonstrates that the time frame depends entirely on what the drops are being used for & the general condition of your pet i.e. a pet badly infested with parasites or fleas will naturally take longer to manage than a pet who has fewer issues.  Some pet owners report a significant difference very quickly and others report a more gradual change. 

Sometimes two different products can make a difference especially when pets are experiencing issues like itchy or inflammed skin, where we recommend both the Liver, Blood, Skin Detox drops plus the Itchy Skin Spray.  Furthermore, we would recommend the Natural Flea Kit to minimise the chemicals that the pet is ingesting or exposed to on their skin.

Like humans, pets benefit greatly from detoxing and supporting better liver function.  This in turn supports better digestive health and the ability for pets to absorb nutrients and to promote balanced intestinal flora

In most cases, the natural pet remedy you give your pet is used for a specific purpose then no longer needed.  An example would be the Ouch! drops for pain or mobility support or the Liver, Blood Skin Detox drops that we recommend taking twice a year to promote better health or when experiencing skin irritation. 

However, if your pet is requiring ongoing support, the products can be taken up to 3 months then ceased for a month then restarted on the maintenance dose of 1-3 x weekly. As the natural pet products have a long shelf life they can be stored in a darkened place and can be used again as required.  

When your pet has fleas, we recommend using the Natural Flea Kit initially, then a follow up maintenance dose of once or twice a week as instructed on label.  The feedback we have suggests that this cycle is the best way of managing fleas naturally. 

All products can be used by cats and dogs and the pet products that have a horse on the front of the label show that they are able to be given to horses as well.  Goats can use the Ouch stiffness, aching pain drops and this herbal blend may be particularly helpful for joint mobility. Our natural pet remedies are based on home remedies for cats & dogs and natural herbal remedies for horses

Chihuahua, tiny dogs and very small cats, need to reduce the drop dose down to 1-5 drops maximum once a day only. 

Dosing pets with more than one remedy at a time? 
Compatible remedies that can be dosed around the same time are the Liver Blood Skin Detox & the Flea & Intestinal worm remedy or the Everyday Wellness tonic & the Flea & Intestinal worm remedy.  The Ouch Stiffness, aching, pain remedy is better taken away from other medications or remedies except for the Pet Soother.
