Our pharmacy also provides Chinese herbal medicine for pets with a complete pet line for dogs including Yunnan Baiyao:
Yunnan Baiyao (also spelled Yunnan Paiyao) is an extremely versatile Oriental medicine which was invented in 1902. During the Vietnam war, Vietcong soldiers carried the medicine to stop bleeding should they get injured. It is thought to reduce blood loss and promote healing among a plethora of other benefits. The exact ingredients contained within the mixture are unknown as they are kept secret, but it is believed that the mixture contains notoginseng, Chinese yam and galanga.
Though it has many great benefits, perhaps its most common use in dogs is for the treatment of cancer and tumors.
Note: Check with the vet before you begin giving Yunnan Baiyao to your dog.
Yunnan Baiyao is typically dosed based upon the weight of the dog. The dosage recommended tends to be highly variable.
Less than 33 lbs = One capsule (250 mg) once daily
33 – 66 lbs = Two capsules twice daily
Over 66 lbs = Two capsules three times a day
