Cervical Formula is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbal blend that can be very helpful in relieving stiffness or as neck pain remedy in dogs, cats, and horses.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine indications for this herbal blend are Cervical Qi and Blood stagnation, purple tongue, and a pulse that is wiry and tight.
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. Wind Toxin is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
Cervical Formula is an herbal blend specially formulated with herbs specifically chosen to work synergistically to relieve the symptoms of cervical pain and stiffness, or as a neck pain remedy, while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms.
