Dispel Dampness and Nourish the Skin

Veterinary Authorization Required


Dispel Dampness and Nourish the Skin (Chu Shi Wei Ling Tang) contains the formula Spleen Support Formula (Wei Ling Tang) and acts to warm the Spleen, dispel Damp and move stagnant abdominal Qi.

It contains additional herbs to gently but firmly drain Damp and clear Heat to relieve occasional itch. Animals benefiting from this formula have progressed from being Cold and Damp to Hot and Damp; the Damp Heat is still relatively mild compared to that addressed by Four Marvels(Si Miao San).

White atractylodes rhizome and Magnolia bark both dry Damp. Magnolia bark additionally disperses stasis from the abdomen while Cang-zhu atractylodes rhizome warms the Spleen and Stomach. Tangerine dried rind of mature fruit assists in moving the Qi of the abdomen while also “cutting” the Damp.

Ginger rhizome and Red jujube fruit tonify the Stomach and Spleen, respectively, without being cloying. Chinese licorice root and rhizome tonifies the Spleen and Stomach Qi, while also harmonizing the formula as a whole.

Asian water plantain rhizome and Poria drain Damp and promote urination. White atractylodes rhizome tonifies the Spleen to reduce the production of Damp. Chinese cinnamon bark drains Damp, warms the Yang of the Middle Burner and supports healthy production and discharge of urine by the Bladder.


Dries Damp, regulates Qi, harmonizes the Middle Burner, clears Heat, promotes healthy skin.
