Our Ingredients

The safety of your pet is our highest concern. Herbs are tested for multiple contaminants including heavy metals, toxins, and bacteria. Medicinal herbs have been used to treat animals for thousands of years, it just hasn’t been made so readily available and convenient until now. 

Where do our ingredients come from? 

"Seed to Shelf” Consciousness, promoted by Dr. David Eisenberg of Harvard University, is an approach to tracking herbs and maintaining accountability from the origin as seeds, through planting, maturation, harvesting, processing, and testing, until the herbs are delivered to you. Our supplier employs the following safety processes and checks to assure safety, quality, and clinical efficacy. These processes and commitments are why our herbal supplier was chosen for each Healthy Paws Herbals product. They also utilize eco-sensitive farming and follow the guidelines specified by Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species so as not to harm animals or herbal species.
