Greenpet Equine Herbs -Nettle Leaf
Pure human-grade equine dried herbs come with dosage for horses. Our equine herbs are also suitable for other species such as cows, sheep, goats, alpacas and pigs.
Our herbs are sourced from reputable human-grade suppliers from around Australia and overseas. We select organic or spray-free wherever possible and ensure they meet our strict quality control.
Most horses enjoy the taste of herbs when added to their feed as they would naturally seek out various herbs in the wild depending on their needs.

How to administer Nettle Leaf dried herbs to your horse/animal:
Dried herbs may be added directly to your horses dampened feed in their dry state. Alternatively, they may be made into an infusion (herbal tea) prior to use and the soak liquid and soaked herbs poured over their feed prior to feeding. By making an infusion prior to feeding, releases more nutrients from the herbs and increases the health benefits and this soak water may be used to dampen feeds. But if time and convenience is an issue then adding the dry herb (except root herbs) directly to feed is fine.
Root herbs are best softened by adding boiling water and allow to cool before adding the liquid and softened herb to feed.
