There are many veterinarians who now offer Chinese herbs in their treatment options. There are also full lines of Chinese herbs created especially for animals.

A new Old Way to Treat

Western Herbal Medicine is based on the use of a single herb to treat specific symptoms of mild disease. Chinese Herbal Medicine is more complex, using elements of plants and other natural substances combined into formulas of four to ten ingredients. Many of these formulas are patented, ancient, and very powerful. In the right hands, they can be used to treat serious and chronic illness.

Herbs assist the healing process in a slower and deeper style than western medicine which only treats symptoms. You need to be patient with herbs. Also, don't try to diagnose and treat your pet with herbs yourself. They have different reactions to herbs than humans do. So even if you know a lot about herbs for yourself, either study or consult an expert before treating your pet.

The stronger potencies are only available through veterinarians. There are some over-the counter Chinese Herb mixtures available though you'll probably have more success using a veterinarians mixture.

Moist/Damp
When diagnosing your pet, the vet will look at things like color of tongue and gums, as well as overall behavior and personality. Based on the evaluation they will prescribe a starting mixture. After taking the herb for a while, progress is measured and possibly more herbs are given. Sometimes one will heal the issue.
