Nature's Medicine

At Firestone Creek, we do our best to use natural forms of healing and prevention for all of our animals and for ourselves, too. We use quite a few herbals, including herbal de-wormers and herbal mineral preparations. We also use homeopathic treatments for our animals whenever we can, including wildcrafting when the season allows it. In some cases, we do resort to using other things, like prescription meds, but only as a last resort when everything else is failing or if time is an important issue. It's not that I don't believe herbs can work in those cases; sometimes they can. However, sometimes I err on the side of caution and take the most travelled road because I don't want to lose an animal.
