Trouble with hoof rot, parasites or viruses? Herbals remedies have been the first choice of domesticated animals for thousands of years. What herbs would they seek out if given the chance to forage freely and why? This class will present protocols, techniques and remedies drawing from two decades of clinical herbal practice, a decade of personal experience micro-homesteading and practicing permaculture principles in Humboldt County and influenced by the famed veterinary herbalist Juliette de Baracli Levy. We’ll cover the health needs of goats, sheep, horses, chickens, dogs, cats, rabbits, pocket pets and bees.
