Qing Fe San is a TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) herbal blend that helps respiratory tract infections and pneumonia in dogs, cats, and horses.
The Western Medical indications for this herbal blend are respiratory tract infections and pneumonia. The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine indications are asthma, cough, high fever, lung heat pattern, a pulse that is surging and rapid, and a tongue that is dry and 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. This herb is only one of the many TCM herbal blends available for our doctors to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
Qing Fe San is an herbal blend specially formulated with herbs specifically chosen to work synergistically to relieve symptoms of respiratory tract infections and pneumonia while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms. The Chinese principles of treatment for this herbal blend are to clear lung heat and stop cough/asthma.
The main ingredients in the Qing Fei San herbal formula are:
- Ban Lan Gen (Isatis) to clear lung heat
- Gan Cao (Glycyrrhiza) to harmonize
