Joint pain, Back pain and Stiffness are common problems in our dogs. In TCVM, we look at the pattern of symptoms of our patients. Is the pain acute or chronic ? Is the patient young or old ? Is there an underlying Qi Deficiency ? Is there an imbalance of Yin and Yang ?
Dok's Formula is the herbal formula we use for dogs with joint pain with an underlying Yang Deficiency. These dogs will be worse in the cold weather and have pain and stiffness in their back and hips. This is a common pattern for our geriatric pets.
This formula is warming so should not be used for dogs with a Yin Deficiency or dogs with heat tolerance issues, infections or allergies. Our neutral arthritis formula is Body Sore.
Dok's Formula is a modification of a common formula used by humans for arthritis called Solitary Hermit or Du Huo Ji Sheng Tang.
