Are there any negative interactions with dogs who have heart disease? Any negative interactions with other supplements?
Thank you for your question! The manufacturer, Jing Tang, doesn't list any contraindications or interactions for this herbal formula. However, please check with your vet who knows your pet's individual situation the best. They will be able to tell you for sure whether External Wind is the right herb for your pet's condition. To learn more about External Wind, you can check out this blog post.
Our GSD’s issue is similar to the yorkie’s above. We moved 2 years ago to a new state and started hiking in the woods. He’s gone into full blown allergy mode and prescribed Exteral Wind. Is this the right TVM or should it have been Internal Wind or another formula? He’s itching terribly, biting holes in spots!!
Thank you for your question! External Wind is the most commonly recommended herb for skin allergies in dogs, cats, and horses. There are other herbs that may help with skin itching due to different deficiencies pets can experience. For example, Damp Heat Skin helps with a TCVM diagnosis of Damp Heat, and Wind Toxin helps with a TCVM diagnosis of Wind Heat. If your vet recommended External Wind, it's likely the right herb for your pet's TCVM diagnosis. The TCVM diagnosis is specific to your pet's characteristics and is based on tongue and pulse.
If you're interested in adding to your pet's anti-allergy regimen, food therapy (diet, treats, and supplements) works very well in conjunction with herbs. You may be interested in getting your TCVM vet's recommendation for the best food for your pet's TCVM diagnosis.
In addition, we have a free ebook download about dog allergies. Often, a cooling diet can support dogs with itchy skin. We also recommend Complement Immune mushroom supplement to support the immune system's response to allergens. Salmon or Lung treats can help too!

Why do I need a vet ok ? My holistic vet recommended this
Thanks for your question. The manufacturer, 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
