How Da Cheng Qi Tang Relieves Impaction and Constipation 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 veterinary medical philosophy.
TCVM focuses on balance and finding the root cause of animal health problems 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 herbs correct the imbalances causing the symptoms.
Da Cheng Qi Tang is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
Da Cheng Qi Tang is a specially-formulated herbal blend for relieving symptoms of constipation and impaction, while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms.

Do You Give Your Pet Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics?
If your dog or cat suffers any type of digestive disturbance, good digestive enzymes and probiotics are a must!
Digestive enzymes are also very important because of the way our food is processed and grown today.
In addition, older dogs often naturally lack the enzymes needed to properly digest their food.
Probiotics are a must after antibiotics and many other pharmaceuticals.
Why? Because antibiotics and other medicines kill off the good bacteria in the gut. Lack of good bacteria leads to a weakened immune system and possible overgrowth of yeast (yeast infections).
Some studies also show that supplementing with digestive enzymes and probiotics ease allergies by more completely digesting foods.
