For thousands of years, the Chinese have held the belief that certain herbs, when strategically paired together, can provide a natural way to manage the health of both people and animals.
Chinese herbal medicine can be particularly effective in treating chronic medical conditions. It is also frequently used to alleviate pain, improve and restore organ function, and strengthen the immune system. Best of all, it is completely natural and has virtually no side effects when administered under the guidance of an experienced professional.
The ultimate goal of Chinese herbal therapy is to gradually return the body to a state of natural balance and wellness without the risk of side effects that traditional pharmaceuticals can often present.
Marina Village Veterinary is pleased to offer this age-old treatment as part of our alternative therapy options.
Medicinal herbs can be used to address and manage a wide variety of ailments and conditions in companion animals. These may include, but are not limited to:
Chinese herbal medicine has also been proven to be effective in treating geriatric health complications, as well as a supportive measure for cancer treatments.
Because Chinese herbal medicine is gentler than most medications, it may take a little more time to see significant results. Your pet’s specific treatment protocol will ultimately depend on the condition being addressed and several other unique factors.
