How long will it be before I see results? +

Herbal supplements generally take time to work in the body. We ask you to try the supplements for a full 3 weeks. We always recommend using the therapeutic dosage, unless the supplement is being used as a preventative.

If using the supplements as a preventative then use the maintenance dosage of 1 drop for every 2 lb of body weight twice a day up to 50 lb. Thereafter add one drop for every 4lbs. Otherwise, use the therapeutic dosage. Click here to see therapeutic dosage chart. Be sure to use the product twice a day as directed.

Can your supplements be used together with other supplements? +

It is safe to feed your pet any NHV supplements together.

With other brands of herbal supplements, we cannot guarantee the quality of ingredients, formulations, or any cautions and contraindications. Therefore, we suggest not mixing different brands of herbal supplements together.

NHV supplements can be used in conjunction with some pharmaceuticals. Please contact us with any specific details and we will be happy to assist you.

Always check with your vet when using pharmaceuticals along with supplements. 

My pet is on pharmaceuticals. I would prefer to not use pharmaceuticals? What should I do+

At NHV we believe in taking an integrative approach to your pet's health— which means combining alternative therapies like acupuncture, nutritional therapies and supplements with conventional medications to facilitate healing.

However, we understand that many pet parents prefer to use only natural supplements. We strongly advise consulting your veterinarian and working with them to determine the best course of action for your pet.

If your pet is currently on pharmaceuticals, and you and your vet have determined that you would like to try natural supplements only, we recommend the following for weaning a pet off a pharmaceutical and on to a supplement:

Give your pet both the pharmaceutical and supplement together for about 2.5 weeks, then slowly decrease the dosage of the pharmaceutical by 1/4 every 3-4 days.

Please be sure to contact us for the use of pharmaceuticals and supplements, so that we may check any possible listed cautions and contraindications for you. Always check with your vet when using pharmaceuticals along with supplements. 

I accidentally left my supplement out on the counter overnight, is it still safe to use+

NHV products are all natural and do not contain any artificial preservatives. If the supplement was only at room temperature for a few hours and does not have a funny smell to it then it may still be safe to use. However, we have to leave this up to the discretion of the pet parent.
