Herbal Medicine has been used to heal animals for centuries – much longer than Western drugs.
We utilize both Western and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) herbs and herbal formulas.
Herbs can be used to treat most diseases recognized in conventional medicine. They can be combined with pharmaceutical drugs to lower their required dosages or perhaps replace the drug altogether. Herbal Medicine can be used to treat issues that have not responded well to the conventional drugs.
Side effects are absent-to-minimal and the herbs can generally be used for extended periods of time. However, regular checkups are important to adjust the herbs to any changes in the animal’s condition or energy patterns.
Herbal Remedies for Pets
Herbs are used to treat chronic or acute conditions and work to relieve pain, strengthen the immune system, and support good organ function. They are often used in conjunction with other modalities for a synergistic and enhanced efficiency.
Unlike conventional medications which are often given to control symptoms, herbal medicine works with the body’s energy to get to the root of the problem to heal it long term. Herbs work like a little dose of acupuncture every day. Of course, this can be a long process, as they help to restore the body’s natural state of balance and good health.
We use only human grade herbs that have been tested for their purity and safety. There are several forms including tablets, liquids, capsules and loose powder.
We will use the form that best suits your pet. You will likely be advised to start with a lower dose to allow time for your pet to adjust to the herbs as it is not always beneficial to attempt a rapid change in health.
