Traditional Chinese Medicine for Dogs.

Traditional Chinese Medicine, is very under utilized in Australia, yet it can be incredibly beneficial in the diagnosis and treatment of illness in our pets. Listed below are a number of herbs that I consider invaluable in helping prevent and treat the root cause of illness.

Herbs that heal and protect.

Astragalus (Huang Qi) The Ancient Plant of Longevity and Strength.

Is part of the legume family and is a seriously fortified immunity booster for dogs. This dynamic little plant has 3 main elements that make it such an amazing powerhouse.

Saponins - that lower cholesterol and improve the immunity system

Flavonoids - antioxidants to fight free radicals and provide protection

Polysaccharides - antimicrobial and antiviral, a great first line of defense.

Its is beneficial for dogs with poor immunity or dogs that are recovering from illness or surgery.

Interestingly, Astragalas is also considered to be effective in protecting against lyme disease.

Probably the best way to give to your dog is to add it to a bone broth which you dog will just love.

Siler Root (Fang Feng)

This is another wonderful herb that can be used to boost immunity. It has also been used effectively to treat conditions such as Arthritis. This herb has antimicrobial qualities which assist in keeping your dog in overall good health. Siler Root is extracted from the plant and can be given as a powder in your dogs meal, its a great immunity supplement.
