Herbal Therapy


Chinese Herbal Therapy is the use of plants or plant derivatives found in nature and have been used to successfully treat animals in China for at least 5,000 years. Chinese herbs can be used alone or combined with other holistic or traditional treatments. Herbal medications and treatments come in a variety of forms including pills, liquids, or tablets. Our veterinarians will help you choose the variety of herbal medication that is right for your pet depending on their species and condition.

Chinese herbal therapies have been developed for the management of a wide range of medical conditions including:

  • Cancer
  • Liver disease
  • Epilepsy
  • Chronic lameness
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Behavioral disorders

At Essex Animal Hospital, we can begin Chinese Herbal Therapy after performing a thorough examination and performing any additional diagnostic testing that may be necessary for your pet’s diagnosis.
