Yang Yin Xi Feng is a TCM herbal blend that helps convulsions and seizures in dogs, cats, and horses and can be a very helpful treatment for animals with epilepsy.
The Western Medical indications for this herbal blend are convulsions, seizures, and epilepsy. The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications are dry skin, panting, cool-seeking behavior, seizures, convulsions, Internal wind due to Yin Deficiency, a pulse that is thready and fast, and a tongue that is red and dry.
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. This herbal blend is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
