Chinese Veterinary Herbal Toxicity

Chinese Veterinary Herbal Toxicity

by Huisheng Xie, DVM, PhD, MS

Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) has been administered to animals in China for more than 4,000 years.1 Many clinical studies have indicated that CHM is effective for treating a wide variety of medical conditions in the areas of cardiology2, dermatology3, endocrinology4, gastroenterology5, reproduction6, oncology7, immunology8, pulmonology9 and musculoskeletal conditions10. However, Chinese herbs are drugs. We must treat them as pharmaceutical medications. As CHM is more widely used for the treatment and prevention of various diseases in both humans and animals in the United States and other western countries, reports of adverse reactions related to CHMs have increased.11-14 Therefore, toxicity and safety of CHM is one of the most important topics in veterinary practice. This article focuses on the analysis of the toxicity of Chinese herbs in order that toxic herbs can be identified, and properly prepared and used to reduce the incidence of adverse events.

A Fond Farwell- By Barbara Lowell

July 5th 2010 will be a new day for me, just a few days short of serving you all for 6 years with the Chi Institute. It’s been a fine chance for me to contribute my heart to the lessening of pain and anxiety of our animal friends, their compassionate owners, and most of all the dedicated and noble veterinarians who attend our classes. Soulmates … Bless You All!!
