Picture Of Doks Formula That Can Treat Arthritis And Joint Pain

Dok’s Formula is an herbal arthritis treatment for chronic joint pain for dogs, cats, and horses.

Will Dok’s Formula Herbal Arthritis Treatment Help Your Pet?

If your pet suffers from arthritis or chronic joint pain, Dok’s Formula might be the solution.

The Western Medical indications for this Dok’s Formula are:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Intervertebral disc disease
  • Rheumatism.

The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCVM) indications are:

  • Bi syndromes
  • Cold-Bi syndrome
  • Kidney Qi/Yang Deficiency with Wind-Cold-Damp
  • Deep, weak pulse
  • Weak back

At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, Dr. Smith offers an Eastern exam in combination with the standard veterinary exam. Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy.

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) focuses on balance and finding the cause of the problem rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines.

Through Eastern examination techniques, Dr. Smith chooses herbal blends to ease your pet’s symptoms. At the same time, the herbs correct the underlying imbalances causing the symptoms.

However, Dok’s Formula is only one of the many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.

Looking for an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats?

Why Use an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats? I remember my first experience giving a cat insulin shots. It was years ago, and I was pet sitting for a friend. Giving kitty an insulin shot would be easy, she said. Just give him a little tuna and give him a shot. That’s it! NOPE.
