The Advantages of Herbs for Pets
Fundamental to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), herbal treatments were developed over thousands of years ago in China. Natural plant, mineral or animal substances are used to enhance your pet's immunity, general state of well-being and recuperative power. TCM herbs are commonly combined in tailored formulas to enhance each herb's individual properties and actions. These tonic formulas strengthen organs and balance deficiencies, and can be used to treat chronic conditions, relieve pain, build up the immune system, and restore organ function.
The herbs in our pharmaceutical formulas are safe plant and botanical extracts that do not interact with most medications. In fact, herbal formulas may lessen the side effects of prescription drugs and sometimes lead to a decrease in medication dosage. Herbal treatments are appropriate for dogs, cats, horses, and other farm animals, and work very effectively in conjunction with acupuncture. However, herbs should not be given to pregnant pets.
Often, Chinese herbs are successful when prescription medications aren't, particularly for many hard-to-treat chronic conditions. You may even save money on medical bills by using herbs for simple problems like travel sickness, nervousness and bad breath.
