About Our Herbal Pet-Ts Line
The benefits of herbal teas are well known and they not only are beneficial for humans but also for animals. Many herbal teas that we love and use to refresh, calm and energize also are great for our four-legged friends. Our pets also need a break in their busy days to recharge or unwind. Just like us, tea also can help calm an upset tummy, relax before and during a trip, re-hydrate after exercise or just get going for a day of activity and fun. Tea also provides some tasty variety for your pet’s daily the water which is so needed for hydration, particularly in the hot Florida weather.

How Your Pet Can Enjoy Our Herbal Pet-Ts
Be creative! You know your Best-Buddy’s likes and habits. Does she like to sit with you? Run and exercise? Love a chew or rolling toy? Enjoys cold snacks, treats and ice-cubes? Taylor Pet-T-Time to their routines. Our delicious and healthful herbal infusions can be savored most any time day-or-night. Pharmacist Choice Herbal Pet-Ts can be served room temperature or cold in a wide mouth tea-cup or bowl (yes, there are some very cute pet themed tea bowls out there), as pet-size ice cubes or chips, mixed into their favorite food, added (as liquid or ice-cube) to their water or soak a rope chew toy or mixed in with a chasing toy.
Preparing fine herbal tea for your pet is as easy as preparing fine tea for yourself.
Traditional: For each 8 oz. cup good quality water that has just come to the boiling point and over the tea bag (if the water comes to a full boil let it set for 15 seconds or so to avoid cooking the herbs). Steep for 12 minutes to get all of the flavor and botanical benefits extracted. Remove the tea bag, let cool to at least room temperature and serve.
Tea-And-Treat: Make a tradition of it, sort of like High-Tea. Brew tea as above and serve the tea with one or two of your pet’s favorite treat. Perhaps, having a cup of fine tea and a treat for yourself would be a nice touch.
Iced Tea: Yes, any time is a great time for ice-herbal-tea in Florida. Can make our teas in the traditional way as above and cool in the refrigerator or put into nice sized ice-cube trays. Or you can make as a Sun-Tea by steeping three or four bags per quart in the sun for 2 hours or Coldbrew-Tea in the refrigerator overnight…, yep, make it just like you would do for yourself.
Kicked-Up Water: Make traditional or iced tea and mix in the regular water bowl (try 4 parts water and 1 part herbal tea) to encourage proper needed hydration.
Food Infusion: Make a traditional brew, let cool to room temperature and add some to regular food to increase moisture, give food taste variety and enhance healthfulness of wet or dry foods. Our products are vet-approved and all natural so daily consumption is just fine.
Play Time Treat: Make tea anyway you care to and soak a natural and safe rope pull-toy, chew toy, cat ball or mix with rolling action-toy fillings. This is particularly fun for your cat with our organic catnip and great for your dog with our ginseng Marco Polo blend.
