Chinese Medicine Basics: Herbal Medicine for Pets

Balance is the goal for all Chinese medicine treatments and herbal formulas. As we go through life, our bodies tend to fall out of balance, and the same is true for our pets. Chinese medicine uses natural therapies to re-establish the body’s healthy balance by nourishing what is weak and reducing what is too strong. While some pets will require surgery, medications, and lab tests to fully heal from their conditions, Chinese herbal medicine can help support them in their healing or be used to preventively against future disease and pain.

Qi is the energy that gives us life. Consider the exuberance of a young puppy. This dog has abundant qi and as such is more likely to fend off disease and heal more quickly from injury. As pets age or if they become ill, their qi declines and they have less vitality. Chinese herbal supplements can help boost your pet’s natural qi and energy.

Blood is another key aspect of a healthy pet. Injury, illness, and disease, however, can lead to problems in the blood. Blood may become stagnant and cause pain, it may diminish and cause weakness, or it may be involved with serious conditions like hemangiosarcoma. Chinese medicine uses many natural herbs to improve blood quality and stop bleeding.

According to Chinese medicine, balance is the secret to health in both pets and humans. Chinese herbal supplements restore the imbalances that cause your pet pain, discomfort, or stress.

The Chinese Medicine Organ Systems and Pets

Like humans, pets have a connected system of organs, channels, and tissues that make up a healthy body. The main organs include the Heart/Pericardium/Small Intestine, Liver/Gallbladder, Spleen/Stomach, Kidney/Bladder, and Lung/Large Intestine. Each organ system includes not just the physical organs, but the associated acupuncture channels, internal connections, sense organ, muscle groups, emotions, and more.

For example, the Kidney system is not simply the Kidney organ, but a channel that runs along the back, knees, and legs, internal connections to other organs, the ears, bones, and the emotion of fear. As such, the Kidney system may be supplemented with herbs to treat varied issues like hearing loss, anxiety, or knee pain!

Our Chinese herbal supplements are formulated with key herbs that work to address the specific organ system imbalances to improve the overall health of your pet.

Common Pet Care Treatments in Chinese Medicine

Holistic veterinary medicine is growing as a natural way for pet owners to take care of their furry family members. Many veterinarians learn veterinary acupuncture to help boost their patient’s health. Acupuncture is commonly used on pets for pain conditions, musculoskeletal issues (like hip dysplasia), skin conditions, anxiety, and other pet problems. Chinese herbal medicine is a natural choice for many vets to ease suffering and strengthen energy in animals.
