How Bai Hu Si Miao Eases Rheumatoid Arthritis in Dogs, Cats, and Horses
At Natchez Trace Veterinary Services, Dr. Smith provides an Eastern exam (TCVMM) in combination with the standard veterinary exam.
TCVM philosophy is very different than our standard Western veterinary medical philosophy.
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine focuses on maintaining balance and finding the root cause of health problems, rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines.
Through Eastern examination techniques, Dr. Smith chooses herbal blends to ease your pet's symptoms.
And, at the same time, the herbs correct the imbalances causing the symptoms.
Bai Hu Si Mia is only one of the many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
Bai Hu Si Miao is a specially-formulated herbal blend for easing the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in dogs and more, while at the same time addressing the underlying causes of these symptoms.
