Debbie, never feed raw form of dates, neem, chirota. You'll land yourself and your dog into a big trouble!!. As far as Ayurveda as a form of medicines are concerned, like for us, it's also safe for our dogs. I've used Ayurvedic medicines on my dog. For example, I fed him Vetpexorant which is a cough serup for dogs. The result was good. I'm feeding Ventrilev-pet which is an appetizer and liver supplement for dogs. The results are again good. Neem soap is the best way to keep the coat clean and healthy. So, Ayurvedic medicines are good for our dogs. But, don't end up feeding neem, dates to the poor fellow :p.
