What is Veterinary Food Therapy?

Food Therapy is one of the central treatment modalities in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). In simple terms, it is the art and science of using selected food ingredients to rebalance the body’s energies.

Food therapy, like acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, can be combined with and compliment traditional western medicine to treat a wide variety of acute and chronic illnesses, and to promote the overall well-being of your pet.
