Perhaps there is. Here are a few recipes you can use to make home made medicine for animals that might be able to help them.

Itchy Ears?

Noticed your pet’s been scratching at his or her ears lately? Aloe Vera is a great medicine for animals that can help sooth red or inflamed areas of the ear. You can also dip a cotton swap in vegetable oil to help remove built up wax or dirt.

Bad Breath?

Noticed your dog or cat has some seriously, sinister, stinky breath? A raw carrot makes excellent medicine for animals, as its abrasive texture will help scrape away plaque. It also helps pets salivate, which will help them remove loose food particles.

Irritated Skin?

Does your little guy or gal have irritated skin? Chamomile tea makes an excellent medicine for animals with rashes and icky skin. All you have to do is make the tea, put it in a spray bottle, let it cool in the refrigerator, and then spray on the afflicted areas.
