Dang Gui Cong Rong is a TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blend that helps constipation, megacolon, and impaction in dogs, cats, and horses.
The Western Medical indications for this herbal blend are constipation, impaction, and megacolon in old patients. The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications are Blood and/or Yin deficiency, constipation, dry stool, impaction, a pulse that is thin and weak, and a tongue that is dry and red or pail without coating.
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 herb is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
Dang Gui Cong Rong is an herbal blend specially formulated with herbs specifically chosen to work synergistically to relieve symptoms of constipation, megacolon, and impaction, while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms.
