Chinese Herbal Medicine for Your Pets

At Integrative Veterinary Therapies, we love pets. To provide more comprehensive vet care services, we offer Chinese herbal medicine. We find that taking a holistic approach can be the best support that dogs, cats, and other pets need. We aren’t your average veterinarian because of the alternative therapies that we use in Ridge, NY.

What is Chinese herbal medicine?

Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years for humans and animals alike. Chinese herbs are natural, providing several benefits to your pet. Unlike prescription drugs that are filled with chemicals, herbs are organic. Various herbs can be blended as a way to restore balance and optimal health for your dog or cat.

Depending upon what is going on with your pet, they may need prevention or treatment – and Chinese herbal medicine can provide the support that is needed. By taking an alternative veterinary approach, we can make sure that your pet is properly taken care of.

How can it help pets?

One of the main reasons we choose to use Chinese herbal medicine within our veterinary practice at Integrative Veterinary Therapies is because it is natural. Many prescriptions can lead to problematic side effects, including loose stool, hair loss, fatigue, and more. We want to see your pet looking and feeling their very best, which is why we choose to use this alternative approach.

The various Chinese herbs can be given to pets in a variety of different ways. It can be used to improve their breathing, their skin, their immune system, and more. If your pet has had abdominal pain or digestive disorders, there are Chinese herbs that can have a positive impact. Additionally, we can prescribe different formulas to take care of such conditions as:

  • Anxiety
  • Joint support
  • Digestion
  • Pain and inflammation
  • Skin conditions
  • Bladder support

By making an appointment with our veterinarian, we can take a better look at your animal. Once we have a diagnosis, we can establish a Chinese herbal remedy that can be given to them. We want the same thing that you want for your pet – the very best. With our holistic approach, we treat the actual underlying problem as opposed to masking the symptoms.
