Question How safe are Herbals and How do we know they work?

How safe are Herbals and How do we know they work?

Just wondering because my Vet wants me to put Zelda on Carprophen for her pain and she is only 1 year old. I think in general her recovery after exercise is quicker with the carprophen as im doing the week trial he wanted me to do, etc. But i am worried about the long term effects of carprophen on her body..
So someone suggest and i've researched some natural herbals, and most of them seem to have good reviews.
But a friend asked me how do i know if they are safe, sometimes they aren't even FDA approved. And I thought it was a good question, and i cant really seem to find an answer anywhere.. And also how do we know they work?
