Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang is a TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blend that helps chronic diarrhea in dogs, cats, and horses.
The Western Medical indications for this herbal blend are chronic diarrhea and prolapse of anus or uterus. The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications are anorexia, loss of body weight, dribbling urine, fatigue, low fever (Yin Fire) due to Spleen Qi Deficiency, prolapse of anus or rectum, prolapse of vagina or uterus, prolonged diarrhea, a pulse that is deep and weak, severe Spleen Qi deficiency (Sinking), and a tongue that is pale.
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. Wind Toxin 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 Zhong Yi Qi Tang is an herbal blend specially formulated with herbs specifically chosen to work synergistically to relieve the symptoms of chronic diarrhea or prolapse of anus or uterus 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 and raise sunken Yang.
The main ingredients in the Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang herbal formula are:
- Bai Zhu (Atractylodes) to tonify Qi and strengthen Spleen
- Chai Hu (Buplerum) to raise Spleen
