Ping Wei San Helps Chronic Indigestion in Dogs, Cats and Horses

What is Ping Wei San?

Ping Wei San is a TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blend to ease chronic indigestion in dogs, cats, and horses.

From a Western medical standpoint, Ping Wei San helps the diagnosis of indigestion.

However, Eastern medicine (TCVM)  looks at health challenges a little differently.


The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications for Ping Wei San are:

  • Abdominal fullness
  • Anorexia
  • Damp accumulation in Spleen
  • Diarrhea
  • Lethargy
  • Slippery pulse
  • Pale tongue


How Does Ping Wei San Help Chronic Indigestion in Dogs, Cats, and Horses?

At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, pets often receive 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 health challenges rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines.

Through Eastern examination techniques, Dr. Smith chooses herbal blends to treat symptoms. And, at the same time, the same herbs correct the health imbalances causing the symptoms.

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

Ping We San is a specially formulated herbal blend for relieving the symptoms of chronic indigestion while at the same time addressing the underlying causes.


The Chinese principles of treatment for Ping Wei San are:

  • Dispelling Dampness
  • Strengthening Spleen Qi
  • Moving Stomach Qi downward


The main ingredients in the Ping We San formula are:

  • Cang Zhu (Atractylodes) to dry up Damp and strengthen Spleen
  • Chen Pi (Citrus) to move Qi and dry up Damp
  • Da Zao (Jujube) to regulate Spleen and Stomach
  • Gan Cao (Glycyrrhiza) to harmonize
  • Gan Jiang (Zingiberis) to regulate Spleen and Stomach
  • Hou Po (Magnolia Obovata) to move Qi and resolve stagnation


Ping Wei San herbal blend comes from the ancient Chinese herbal formula Ping Wei San from the Tai Pin Hui Min He Ji Ju Fang by Chen Shi-Wen et al (1080 AD).
