What is Chinese Dietary Therapy?
How is Dog/Cat Chinese dietary therapy used for specific health conditions?
Here is an example of how dietary therapy might be used for a specific condition: A dog with recurring ear infections and itchy red skin rashes who drinks a lot of water, pants excessively, seeks out cold tile floors to lie on, and dislikes hot weather might feel better on a diet that decreases the Excess Heat in the body and removes Dampness from the body. Dr. Yu would either formulate a recipe for a diet that the human could cook at home or he would guide the human to a commercial food containing the therapeutic ingredients necessary to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient.
Dog/cat Chinese dietary therapy is more than herbal supplements for pets. It’s a holistic way of treating your pet’s condition that incorporates the best of Western and Chinese medicine.
