Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine is an ancient to modern medical form that comprises the body’s innate ability to heal itself by using systems like Acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas. Chinese Herbal Medications are complex formulas of substances created to rid the body of excesses or deficiencies. They are gentle but very potent, and if misused, they might cause conditions to worsen. Each herb is based on taste, temperature, and the meridians it enters. Some are for the short term only, while others are designed for long-term use. Re-evaluation during their use is essential. They work very well in combination with acupuncture and other alternative modalities.
These complex formulas are given to bring your pet back to a normal and balanced state. This requires an examination of the pet’s Chinese medical pattern. They are particular to their use and best prescribed by an experienced doctor. The herbs also should be purchased from respected locations, as they must have high-quality control to avoid dangerous heavy metals or chemicals. Over time, misusing these formulas could cause a worsening or new condition. Used correctly, they can be VERY effective and safe and can often be used with conventional medications.
