Balance your pet’s energy…with treats!

If your pet’s energy or health seems off, feeding him the right treats might provide a simple solution!

Is your pet out of “energetic balance”? “From the TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) perspective, every health issue has a root cause,” says integrative veterinarian Dr. Marc Smith. “Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) is circulating life force. Its existence and properties are the basis of how TCVM works. If the animal’s Qi falls out of harmony and balance, the animal gets a little uncomfortable in one way or another.”

Consuming specific foods promotes the function of one or more of the five major organs in the body, which helps prevent these internal imbalances. Each day, simply feed your pet five to ten of the treats suggested in the graphic to help provide energetic balance, or to rotate to maintain balance in an already balanced pet!
