The Eastern/Western Exam
At our clinic, pets receive an Eastern exam (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in combination with the standard veterinary exam.
Just so you know, Traditional Chinese Medicine exams are different from standard Western veterinary exams.
For example, Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on balance and finding the cause of the problem rather than simply masking symptoms.
Through an Eastern examination, we choose herbal blends that not only treat symptoms but also correct imbalances which led to the illness.
Suo Quan Wan is one of the many TCM herbal blends Dr. Smith uses based on the Eastern exam.
What is So Quan Wan?
