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’s responsibility for controlling the Shen. The Shen is the “spirit” or the “mind.”

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 “Shen,” which is known as the “spirit” or the “mind.”
By giving your pets beef heart treats, these qualities are strengthened.

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.
