How Does Ming Mu Di Huang Help Chronic Eye Problems in Dogs, Cats, and Horses?

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

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy.

TCVM focuses on balance and finding the root cause of health challenges 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 energetic imbalances causing the symptoms.

Ming Mu Di Hang is only one of the many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.

Ming Mu Di Huang is a specially-formulated herbal blend.  These herbs work synergistically alleviating the symptoms of chronic eye problems, while at the same time addressing the underlying causes.

  • Nourishing Liver/Kidney Yin
