What is herbal medicine?
Herbal Medicine utilizes herbal ingredients alone or in specific combinations or formulas as a holistic approach to treat disease. Herbal formulas are administered orally and are typically given in powder form or capsule form to cats and dogs. Herbal therapy is prescribed as carefully as western medications, in regards to quality, safety and efficacy of the products. Don’t forget, many of the pills prescribed today were originally discovered from plants!
Dr. Tucci prescribes herbal medicines predominantly from Dr. Xie’s Jing Tang Herbal in Reddick, FL.
