How Artemisia Combination Treats Hepatitis and Icterus in Dogs, Cats, and Horses
At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, Dr.Smith provides an Eastern exam (TCVM) in combination with the standard veterinary exam.
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine philosophy is very different than our standard Western veterinary medicine philosophy.
TCVM focuses on balance and finding the cause of health problems, 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.
Artemisia Combination is a specially-formulated herbal blend for relieving the symptoms of hepatitis, icterus, and jaundice while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of the symptoms.
The Chinese principles of treatment for Artemisia Combination are:
- Eliminating damp
