My dog's vet prescribed this herb for my 12 years old dog which I have been administered to him for the past 3-4 years. My question is, why do I have to be kept a hostage of a particular vet or any vet just to be able to obtain a herb for my pet? I also buy from him "Concentrated Su Zi Jiang Qi". I came upon this herb and your website when I was researching for something to give relief to excessive phlegm in my dog's throat. But to my surprise I couldn't buy directly from you w/o a vet authorization. During my pet last visit to the vet I requested a natural herb to address the issue, and then I was given the same herb above that I had previously researched but couldn't buy directly from you. There is another herb that I would like to buy from you. It is Bai Hu Si Miao Formula. My little Yorkie has arthritis. In addition, He limps a little due to hips and knees issues. He is due for his annual check-up in March. Again, mostly likely this is the formula I will get from the vet in two months time when I request for a herb to address my pet knees and hips issue. Would you please tell me what prevents your site to sell your herbs to anybody who wants to buy it directly from you? Thank you, Dayse
Thanks for your question. The manufacturer of the herbs, Jing Tang, requires us to keep a veterinary authorization on file for all Jing Tang Herbal product orders.
This is a great way to make sure our customers are purching the correct herb. There are hundreds of Chinese herbal formulas, and while many of them may help your pet, there is always one specific formula and specific dose that is best for your pet. Or, there is a combination of formulas that will help your pet the most. It's up to a veterinarian to determine this combination based on their training. Without this TCVM training, the incorrect herb or combination is often chosen.
Since you already have a vet, to purchase from us, you just need to fill out this form: https://tcvmpet.com/pages/get-an-authorization
We use the form to contact your vet for approval. It's possible your vet may approve your purchase from us before your follow up exam with your vet in March based on their knowledge of your pet's condition.
If you have any other questions or if we can help you in any way, just let us know!
