3 Reasons to Incorporate Chinese Herbs Into Your Animal’s Health Routine

Chinese herbs have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) since 2000 BC, and today they are still very popular in Asia. While there are hundreds of different Chinese herbs that may be used to treat ailments and improve health in humans, some of them can also be used to help animals’ health as well! Use these three reasons to incorporate Chinese herbs into your pet’s health routine.

Improve Symptoms

In many cases, using Chinese herbs can relieve symptoms and help your pet get back to their normal routine more quickly. For instance, a cat with arthritis may be able to stop limping, or a dog with hip dysplasia may be able to go on walks without pain. Some of the most common conditions that are treated with Chinese herbs for animals are:

Aid in Disease Treatment and Prevention

Chinese herbs are an effective and safe way to help your animal combat a wide variety of health conditions, including inflammation, diabetes, obesity, kidney disease, and cancer. The herbs can also be used as preventative measures for aging-related conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis. For many people with pets, the decision to incorporate Chinese herbs into their animals’ routine is not just about health benefits, but also about peace of mind. Chinese herbs can also be used to help treat digestive issues: Animals have strong digestive systems just like humans do; however, when food isn’t digested properly, or toxins accumulate inside an animal’s body, this could cause issues like indigestion or diarrhea.

Alleviate Stress

Stress is a major contributor to health problems. Stress can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, anxiety, depression, and obesity. The problem is that animals can’t tell us when they’re feeling stressed out, which is why it’s important for us as owners to be aware of the signs. Some common signs of stress in dogs are: excessive panting, licking lips too much, and hiding. When we notice these behaviors in our dog, we should take a break from whatever activity we are doing with them. We need to give them time away from us to calm down before continuing on with what we were doing before the stressful behavior occurred.
