Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbs are used in formulas to treat a particular disease found on the patient during an examination. The herbal formulations we provide are mostly a mixture of multiple plants. They can be used alone or combined with other therapies to treat most conditions recognized by conventional medicine. Often they are used in combination with a conventional prescription as an integrative approach.

TCVM herbs are especially helpful in the treatment of chronic diseases and for diseases of the geriatric animal. They are most often used to relieve pain, help improve and restore organ function, as well as strengthen and support the immune system. TCV  M herbal prescriptions are specific for the individual patient and are directed at the root cause of an illness to correct it, and are not given to control symptoms alone.

Chinese herbs have a long history of safety and efficacy. The most common side-effects seen in veterinary practice are vomiting and/or diarrhea. These effects typically resolve within 24 hours of stopping the herbal medication.

Chinese herbs can be used as part of an integrative approach with other systems of medicine for a greater therapeutic effect and improved treatment outcomes.
