Chinese herbal medicine is a form of traditional medicine we integrate alongside other conventional veterinary care. As a part of our holistic approach, Chinese herbal medicine is created specifically to meet your pet’s health needs. We collaborate with you to cater our recommendations to best suit your loyal companion.
What is Chinese herbal medicine?
Chinese herbal medicine aligns with the elements like water, fire, metal, wood and earth, which are connected to specific body parts. When misaligned, it can create health issues. Our goal is to restore balance and harmony with the help of herbs that target parts of your pet’s body. We integrate a variety of naturally sourced ingredients that help target a range of health issues. If your pet is experiencing immune system issues, gastrointestinal conditions, joint pain or needs general wellness support, Chinese herbs could be an excellent fit for them.
Are they safe?
Chinese herbal medicine is a tried and true practice that predates many modern techniques. Their impact on pets has been extensively studied to ensure they experience minimal side effects. Though they are also formulated to counteract any adverse side effects, your pet could experience minimal vomiting or soft stools, which typically subside quickly.
