At Natchez Tracee Veterinary Services, Dr. Smith provides an Eastern exam (Traditional Chinese Medicine) in combination with the standard veterinary exam.
Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy is different than standard Western medical philosophy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on balance and finding the root cause of health challenges 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 correct the imbalances causing the symptoms.
Liver Happy is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
