Welcome, Breelyn, and good luck with your studies. I use herbs for my dog. She has been prone to urinary tract infections and is now getting old and a bit stiff, so I mix up various herbs into a tea that I moisten her kibble with. My current mix is parsley, nettle, chickweed, dandelion, uva ursa, echinacea, alfalfa, burdock, milk thistle, turmeric. I don't measure it precisely, but about equal parts of all, which I then brew and keep in a jug where I feed her.
