About Us


Hi and welcome to Five Leaf Pet Botanicals. My name is Amanda Banting, I am a Herbalist and the founder of Five Leaf Pet Botanicals.

Fourteen years ago one of my seven dogs, Tom (he was 6 years old at the time and my eldest), was diagnosed with heart disease, he was given only 6 – 12 months to live. I was devastated. My dogs are my children, so I could not accept his prognosis. I was already practicing natural healing and was very knowledgeable in the power of herbs as medicine, but my education had focused on treating humans, not canines. I, like many other dog owners, thought dogs were dogs – they were fed kibble, brought for walks, given vaccines here and there and they would live into their teens, hopefully dying in their sleep.

Since all my dogs were still young and relatively healthy up until that point, I never had to think about treating them with herbs and natural healing. Since the Vets had given me no hope for Tom and actually told me flat out “there is no cure for heart disease” I felt I had no choice but to take matters into my own hands and put a program together for Tom to help his body heal. I drew from my education and designed a program based on what I would do for a human in the same situation. I had acquired such great knowledge from my mentors and teachers, Dr. John Christopher and Dr. Richard Schulze, and I put it all to work in Tom’s program. I started Tom on the program immediately. Within one week his heart rate had dropped from an unsettling 220 BPM down to 110 BPM (within normal range). After the first month his heart rate was down to 70 BPM and that is where it stayed. Six months after starting the program I had another ultrasound performed and I was told to keep doing what I had been doing because his heart looked great. All his measurements had improved. They told me that I did not have to come back to get another ultrasound done unless he started becoming symptomatic again.

Having seven dogs at the time I was involved in many doggy activities and knew many other dog owners so by word of mouth I began helping other dogs with heart disease using the same program I designed for Tom. After witnessing equally remarkable results with other dogs using my program, I realized I had to make it available to other owners who wanted more than just conventional treatment that only prolonged inevitable death from heart failure. After its launch in 2003 CanineHeartHealth.com was soon helping hundreds of dogs with heart disease. Not only did these dogs have heart disease, many of them had failing kidney and livers, some due to the drugs they had been on to manage the symptoms of their heart disease and some had unrelated pre-existing issues. The Liver and Kidney herbs that are part of the Canine Heart Health Program were helping restore health to these diseased organs as well. To help my customers and their dogs, I decided we needed separate Kidney, Liver and Heart Health programs for dogs dealing with individual issues. That is how CanineKidneyHealth.com and CanineLiverHealth.com were born.

Five Leaf Pet Botanicals was not started as a business venture, it was started out of necessity for my dog and then yours. Since 2002 I have personally spoken with over 10,000 pet owners who have given me feedback and new ideas. This is a large part of why our herbal formulae and programs are so effective. We don’t just assume a certain herb works because we read it somewhere. I’m proud to say that Five Leaf Pet Botanicals knows what works because we use the herbs and see the results first hand. Using the highest quality organic and wild harvested herbs available enables us to offer what we think is the best natural healing solution available for dogs with Heart, Liver or Kidney disease period.

If you're anything like me, your "pet" is your best friend, a member of the family, and the light of your life. So watching your pet get older is anything but easy.... My world kinda stood still when the Vet told me after a recent check-up that she had an enlarged left ventricle in her heart and thus was in the beginning stages of heart failure. Heart failure? My Abbey? No... Abbey's heart was x-rayed again, and the Vet said, "I am not trained in holistic medicines. I am a medical Doctor, but whatever you are doing, if it's not bothering Abbey or making her sick, don't stop doing it." Abbey's enlargement had shrunk! And in Dr. Goté's own words, "significantly". It had shrank to the point where it was not pressing on her breathing tube anymore (which is what causes the gagging and coughing). I was beyond happy. I was elated!... Try it. It works. You and your best bud won't be sorry! Many happy and healthy days to you all!!!*
