Ear Damp Heat is a TCM herbal blend that can be very helpful in otitis and itchy ears in dogs, cats and horses.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine indications for this herbal blend are bad ears due to Damp-Heat, eruptions, papules, skin lesions with discharge and odor, itchy ears, scratching ears, otitis, a fast pulse, and a tongue that is purple or red.
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 the results of the Eastern exam.
