In the video below, PET | TAO co-founder and TCVM veterinarian Dr. Marc Smith TCVM Food Therapy: Restore Heart Energy with Beef Heart Treats
Using TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) Food Therapy, you can feed treats for a reason.
Treats can be more than just a fun snack!
Did you know that you can use treats to improve your pet's health?
PET | TAO¬ģ ¬†treats are based on the¬†Yin & Yang¬† and¬†¬†The Five-Element Theory.
In TCVM, the Five-Element Theory explains the relationship between the five naturally occurring elements in the environment.

In Eastern veterinary medicine,¬†the heart is considered the most important organ of the body. It rules the entire body and the body is built to protect the heart.¬†Another vital and important function of the heart is the heart‚Äôs responsibility for controlling the Shen. The Shen is the ‚Äúspirit‚ÄĚ or the ‚Äúmind.‚ÄĚ explains how beef heart treats help pets.

PET | TAO's Harmony

Help your pet live a long, healthy, and balanced by choosing the right food!
Feed with this philosophy and your choices become accurate and effective.

Beef Heart Treats are an excellent source of:

  • Protein with very little fat - building and repairing tissue
  • Niacin - lowering high cholesterol
  • B Vitamins - producing brain chemicals that affect mood and other brain functions
  • Phosphorous - maintaining acid-base balance in the body

Beef Heart Treats aid:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Agitation
  • Behavioral issues
  • Dull eyes
  • Cardiac issues
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Dilated cardiomyopathy¬†
  • Heart failure

How do Beef Heart Treats help?

  • Within the 5 Element theory, the heart represents fire.
  • The qualities of fire are considered to be dynamism, strength, and persistence.¬†
  • The heart is also responsible for controlling the ‚ÄúShen,‚ÄĚ which is known as the ‚Äúspirit‚ÄĚ or the ‚Äúmind.‚ÄĚ
  • By giving your pets beef heart treats, these qualities are strengthened.


A dog gets terrible anxiety when its owner is away. He tears up the furniture and makes a mess. 
Since hearts are rich in B Vitamins, feeding the beef heart treat ideally helps balance your pet’s mood and relieves their anxiety.

What do all these benefits mean for you?

Your ailing pet will begin to feel like their old self again!

Ask a Question
  • Beef heart treats are the cooked ...raw??

    Thank you for your question! PET | TAO Beef Heart treats are freeze dried raw. This blog post explains how they make the treats:

  • If a cat suffers from anxiety, can swapping beef heart treats in place of a different treat be a simple way to aid in anxiety relief? I do give Shen Calmer when conditions warrant. But could something as a simple food switch help her stay on an even daily balance?

    You are correct! PET | TAO veterinarians find that providing small amounts of beef heart to cats and dogs help with a number of conditions controlled by the heart in Chinese Medicine. These conditions include heartworm disease, behavioral disorders, and cardiac disorders. Giving these small; pieces of organs as treats is part of food therapy, which is one of the 5 branches of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. Food therapy works well in conjunction with other branches of Chinese Medicine, such as herbs and acupuncture. Food therapy can also be used when making changes to the diet. Usually, a cooling diet helps support cats with Yin Deficiencies. Check with your TCVM vet to see if your cat with anxiety has a Yin Deficiency.
