What is Qi Performance?
Qi Performance is a TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blend that improves the athletic performance of dogs and horses.
TCVM herbal blends combine synergistic herbs to help ease pet health symptoms.
At the same time, the herbs address the root cause(s) of the symptoms. A very cool method for helping pets from the inside out!
Will Qi Performance Help My Pet?
Do you have a pet that is losing muscle mass? Or maybe a sporting animal that needs a little "extra edge"?
If so, Qi Performance may be the solution you've been searching for.

- Poor performance

- Exercise intolerance
- Muscle pain
- Poor performance
- Weight loss
- Deep and weak pulse
- Wet, pale tongue

How Does Qi Performance Improve Athletic Performance of Dogs and Horses?
An animal's athletic performance is determined by the animal's ability to complete the assigned task.
For example, many sporting animals are involved in racing.
In racing, we assess performance by the speed at which the task is completed.
Accordingly, the three main factors limiting an athlete's speed are:
- Physiological fatigue
- Psychogenic stress
The Qi Performance herbal blend works to reduce the factors reducing speed ability.
Which then helps the animals reach their maximum performance potential.
Then, by reducing the key factors limiting the athlete during a competition, performance is improved.
Qi Performance works by:
- Tonifying Qi and Blood
- Moving Blood
- Relieving Pain
- Helps increase the efficiency of energy use
- Help reduce physiological fatigue
In addition, when added to feed in farm animals, Qi Performance has:
- Increased body weight in chickens and pigs*
- Increased milk in dairy cows*
At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, Dr. Smith often provides an Eastern exam (TCVM) in combination with the standard veterinary exam.
TCVM philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy.
For example, Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine focuses on balance and finding the cause of health challenges, rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines.
Then, through Eastern examination techniques, Dr. Smith chooses an herbal blend to treat an animal's symptoms. And, at the same time, the herbs also correct the body imbalances causing the symptoms.
However, Qi Performance is only one of the many Eastern herbal blends Dr. Smith has available to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
During the TCVM exam, Dr. Smith may discover the root causes better helped by a different TCVM herbal blend.
