Chinese Herbal Medicines are used together with acupuncture treatments to strengthen energy and blood circulation in animals. These ancient Chinese formulas have been used and refined over centuries and have proven their safety and efficacy. At Asia Paws we specifically obtain our Chinese Herbs from the Natural Path Herb Company based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The herbs are US FDA approved.
How do I give herbs to my pet?
Start by following our advice in the clinic. Use treats and or liquids to introduce your pet to natural medicines. Many pets subsequently accept natural medicines mixed into their food. Dosages are small (1/4 teaspoon to 2 teaspoon, depending on your pet’s weight) and economical.
If your pet has been traumatised by drugs and other awful tasting remedies, gradually introduce natural remedies. Mixing it with honey, butter, liver pate, bread or other natural foods can help to speed up acceptance of natural remedies.
Some pets accept herbal medication more easily in pill form. Because we dispense powder, you can easily fill the prescribed daily dosage of powder into empty capsules. They are available in most local Chinese medical "halls". There is even a device available that can fill 30 to 50 medium-sized gelatin capsules at a time!
