Di Gu Pi San is an herbal blend for helping arthritis and joint pain dogs, cats, and horses.

Will Di Gu Pi San Help Your Pet?

Di Gu Pi San might be a good choice if your pet suffers from the Western conditions of:

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Rheumatism

Actually, Di Gu Pi San is Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) herbal blend.

In other words, it is really meant to treat TCVM conditions. However, TCVM looks at health challenges in a different way than Western medicine does.

TCVM looks for and analyzes the root cause of health conditions rather than looking for a diagnosis. So, you’ll probably see some unusual indicators.

The TCVM indications for Di Gu Pi San are:

  • Chronic Bony Bi-Syndrome due to Kidney Yin and Qi Deficiency
  • Preferring coldness
  • Stiffness that worsens with Heat conditions
  • Dry skin and hair coat
  • Thready, weak pulse
  • Red, dry tongue

How Di Gu Pi San Helps in Arthritis and Joint Pain in Dogs, Cats & Horses

At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, Dr. Smith offers an Eastern exam in combination with the standard veterinary exam.

TCVM philosophy differs standard Western medical philosophy.

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine focuses on attaining balance and finding the root cause of health challenges rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines.

Through Eastern examination techniques, Dr. Smith herbal blends to treat your pet’s symptoms, helping him/her feel better.

And, at the same time, the herbs correct the imbalances causing the symptoms.

However, Di Gu Pi San is only one of the many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam. The Eastern exam may uncover roots causes better helped by a different herbal blend.
