A Dog's Life with Anna Webb joined by Jo Boughton-White Dorwest

This week Anna is joined by Jo Boughton-White, Managing Director of Dorwest Herbs. Visiting their HQ in Dorchester, the Dorwest team show Anna around the facility, and chat about how their award winning range of Herbal supplements are produced.


Conscious of the very best practice with quality ingredients, the supplements are made to pharmaceutical standards. We chat about the history of the company, now run by Jo as the third generation of this family business. Looking back at press cuttings from as far back as the 1950’s , Anna and Jo discuss why the heritage of Dorwest is so significant as they move into their 75th year!


Discussing the power of herbs as complementary Jo highlights the calming combination of the Dorwest Valerian Compound and Scullcap & Valerian tablets as being a natural solution to reducing anxiety in dogs, offering a better frame of mind to develop training in a host of different situations, helping dogs to cope better with scenarios, including ‘fireworks’ and we discuss some popular products including Keeper’s Mix and Keeper’s Mix Sensitive.


And of course we talk about the trends for people to consider natural alternatives as part of an integrated approach to ‘holistic’ wellness.
