What is Wei Qi Booster?

Wei Qi Booster is a TCVM herbal blend that aids in boosting immunity in dogs, cats, and horses.

It is very helpful in treating chronic illness, chronic viral infections, and anemia.

It is also aids in rebuilding the immune system after chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Wei Qi Booster helps improve an animal’s general health condition as well as prevent upper respiratory infections.

What is Wei Qi in Eastern Medicine?

When animals are stressed or old, they often experience weakened immune systems.

When an animal suffers a weak immune system, the animal often develops fatigue, weakness, weight loss, decreased appetite, chronic infections, and thyroid issues.

In Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, practitioners call the “immune” or “host” defense system “Defense Qi” or “Wei-Qi”.

When the Wei-Qi (immune system) is strong enough to prevent invasion by pathogens (like viruses and bacteria), the animal is considered to be healthy.

Eastern practitioners place more emphasis on the immune system itself than the bacteria and viruses.

The reason is because the pathogens are ever-present in the environment, and cannot harm the animal unless the Wei-Qi (immune system) is too weak to defeat them.

Unfortunately, as soon as the Wei Qi becomes weak, pathogens can enter the body and cause disease and illness.

In TCVM, failure of the immune system to do its job is called Wei Qi Deficiency.

How Dr. Smith Uses Wei Qi Booster to Boost Immunity

At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, Dr. Smith provides an Eastern exam (TCVM) in combination with the standard veterinary exam.

TCVM philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy.

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

Through Eastern examination techniques, Dr. Smith chooses herbal blends to treat your pet’s symptoms.

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

Wei Qi Booster is only one of the many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.

Looking for an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats?

Why Use an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats? I remember my first experience giving a cat insulin shots. It was years ago, and I was pet sitting for a friend. Giving kitty an insulin shot would be easy, she said. Just give him a little tuna and give him a shot. That’s it! NOPE. To say the least, giving the kitty a shot didn’t happen quite the way she described it. What she didn’t tell me was how much kitty hated the shot. Or, how fast I’d need to inject to avoid getting scratched! Let’s face it, insulin injections
