How Does Qi Ju Di Huang Treat Uveitis and Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca in Dogs, Cats, and Horses?

At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services,  Dr. Smith often 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 medical philosophy.

TCVM focuses on balance and finding the cause of the animal’s health challenge,  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 also correct the imbalances causing the symptoms.

Qi Ju Di Huang is only one of the many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.


In other words, Qi Ju Di Huang is an herbal blend specially formulated with herbs specifically chosen to work synergistically to relieve symptoms of:

  • Anterior uveitis
  • Equine recurrent uveitis (ERU)
  • Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS)

The Chinese principles of treatment for this herbal blend are to:

  • Nourish Liver Yin
  • Brighten the eyes
