The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications are a general weakness, Qi deficiency, Yang deficiency, a pulse that is weak, rear weakness, a tongue that is pale and wet and warm-seeking behavior.
At our clinic, pets often receive an Eastern exam (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in combination with the standard veterinary exam. Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy. Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on balance and finding the cause of the problem rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines. Through Eastern examination techniques, we can choose herbal blends that will both treat symptoms and at the same time correct the imbalances in your pet’s body that are causing the symptoms. This herbal blend is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
Bu Yang Huan Wu is an herbal blend specially formulated with herbs specifically chosen to work synergistically to relieve the symptoms of ataxia, sequelae of stroke, and weakness after IVDD while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms. The Chinese principles of treatment for this herbal blend are to tonify Qi, nourish blood, move blood, and smoothen the Channels.
