Senna (Fan Xie Ye) Relieves Constipation in Giant Pandas

Three giant panda cases of constipation have been successfully treated with integrative therapeutic methods (iv fluids and herbal medicine). Fan Xie Ye - Senna with water (Senna: water= 1:8) was boiled for about 20 minutes to make water extract of Senna. Senna water extract (mixed with honey) was orally administered (0.2 to 0.3 g per one Kg body weight). Three Giant pandas had a normal stool 2-3 days after the integrative therapy.

Senna (Fan Xie Ye) for the treatment of constipation in giant panda was reported by Drs Wang, Li and Tang: Integrative therapies for the treatment of constipation in giant panda in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. (3): 63-64, 2007.
