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?
Most pets accept herbs in their food. The dosages we prescribe are small (1/4 teaspoon to 2 teaspoon, depending on your pet’s weight).
If your pet is picky or you introduce herbal medicines for the first time disguise the powder by: ‘Hiding’ the powder by mixing it with honey, butter, natural (not low sugar!) peanut butter, liver pate, canned food, bread or sausage.
Some pets accept herbal medication more easily in pill form. Since we dispense powder, you can turn the powder into a pill by filling it into empty capsules that are available in most local Chinese medical halls. The capsule will dissolve as soon as it’s digested. A simple device that can fill 30 to 60 medium-sized gelatine capsules at a time is also available in most Chinese medical halls.
