Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine practitioners use herbal medicine for a large variety of medical problems and diseases including behavioral disorders such as fear, anxiety, depression and anger.
Many of these behavioral problems can successfully be treated with an appropriate herbal formula, often in conjunction with Food Therapy. As we know there is no single diet suited to all animals, similarly the appropriate herbal formula for your fluffy’s specific problems can be discovered through the astute examination of the patient.
Herbal medicines may be given in pill, tablet, capsule, granular, or raw form. The pills, tablets and capsules are best for those animals who will comply with taking them orally. The granular and raw herbs can be added to patients’ food if they have good appetites and are not finicky. For debilitated animals raw herbs can be cooked together with some home-prepared food in the form of soup or stews.
