- Yerba Santa also known as the sacred herb in Spanish is a sticky-leafed evergreen that is native to the American Southwest. It is often used for the treatment of the common cold, as well as chronic respiratory problems such as bronchitis and asthma. As I always say, please, please, please do not dispense without professional guidance. Check with a holistic vet or a pet homeopath.

- Slippery Elm, like marshmallow, is traditionally used as a treatment for sore throat, coughs, dryness of the lungs, inflammation of the skin, wounds, and irritation of the digestive tract. It has no known serious side effects as it coats the digestive tract and may slow down the absorption of other drugs or herbs.
Please remember that you should consult a professional before any herbal remedies mentioned are used.
