Dissolve Herbal Formula FAQs

What may I expect?
Every dog is different. Customers report to us that they first notice a softening of the lumps and then a gradual reduction of the size. Many customers also report that the pooch immediately starts feeling better, and that there seems to be more energy and get up and go.

It is extremely important to keep in mind that Dissolve Fatty Lumps is a formula that's to be used over three months period of time. If you purchased one bottle as a "test", you may be disappointed, since the formula works over time. We have priced the product so that we give a nice size discount as you buy more, to encourage the long term use of the formula. The people who looked at this as a longer term process and not just a single usage type of supplement have achieved the positive results they were hoping for.
Does it work for every dog?
No, it doesn't work for every dog. That's the way it is when using herbals, or for that matter even modern medicines. We can however say, that most every dog owner that has used this product for their dog has reported some benefit from its use such as; there appears to be less pain when the dog moves, the dog appears to have more energy, and seems to be more alert and spunky. Dissolve Fatty Lumps is a product that is reordered on a continual basis...but unfortunately we never know for what dog it will not work, and why it works on others.
Do these herbs work?

From the perspective coming from a company that sells herbal formulas we always get a little frustrated with this question. Of course they may be effective for your pet, however there is never 100% certainty for positive  results. This is because every cat, dog and  person is different and the degree of disease progression does impact the outcome.

Furthermore, what your pet eats can make the difference between getting better or not. It is our experience that thorough proper diet and supplements pet's improve dramatically.

Without  a doubt Chinese herbs have shown to be very beneficial for our pets, however herbal remedies are not approved by the FDA, and they do not cure or prevent disease.

For some reason we have lost our ability to be rational with respect to herbal remedies. As a company we wouldn't offer herbs that can't help,  however it would be foolish to claim that they work 100% of the time, that's not logical right? If any company making this claim, buyer beware, because we all know that nothing is a sure thing in the terms of disease.

We can say they really do help support a dogs health naturally. We could not stay in business if we did not have happy customers.

Also, something that we hope each customers understands when using our herbal products is that we do not treat diseases. We are proud to say that all of our herbal formulas are created using the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, which is all about balancing Yin and Yang. 

We asked that all customers tell their veterinarian about herbal usage and we hope that between TCM and the resources of western medicine, your dog or cat,  becomes healthily. There is no right way or wrong way, it's all about using the tools that work for you and your pet.

Why are powder extracts better to buy then bottles of liquid herbals you see for cheaper prices on the internet?

Because of potency!  Liquid herbal tinctures may only contain 6 grams of herbs in one 2 oz bottle. Whereas when you buy the concentrated powder extracts that we offer, you are receiving a full 100 grams of a 5:1 concentration  in each bottle.

Buyer beware! Not every bottle of herbs you see on the shelves or sold on the internet is the same. 

Furthermore, every licensed acupuncturist knows that liquid tinctures are considered very weak. If you walk into an herbal clinic, chances are you will only be offered powdered extracts because we know that is what works most effectively other than raw herbal decocted formulas. Most acupuncturists will not prescribe liquid tinctures.

Tinctures look cheap and easy, but what counts is the effectiveness, and effectives is directly related to the amount of herbs that are administered each day. Don't be fooled by price, become a savoy consumer. Know the total herbal ingredients per bottle.



What kind of herbs are these and are they safe?

Our herbal formulas are Chinese herbs formulated for the patterns of disharmony most commonly applicable to cats and dogs. We are the only authentic Traditional Chinese herbal place for pets on the internet. We don't offer only one formula for one condition, we base our formulas on and by a TCM pattern of disease. If you're buying Chinese herbs, and you are not offered a pattern, then it is not authentically a TCM formula that may be must suited for your pets condition.

 Chinese herbs are used on adults, children and pets and are considered very safe when properly administered. However, if your pet does show any signs of not tolerating  them,  stop the herbs for 48 hours, then restart dosing again by using half of the original amount of the herbs you started with.. If your pet still cannot tolerate the herbs then immediately stop administering the herbs to your pet.

These are hospital grade herbs that are manufactured under GMP standards...they are also used in U.S. teaching colleges and Chinese hospitals.

There is no such thing as canine or feline grade herbs. These are human grade herbs manufactured in a certified GMP facility.

We work with a batch system and each batch is assigned a Lot#. The ingredients that we alot to each Lot# is logged at time of manufacture to account for each ingredient and from which Vendor we purchased the ingredients. At different times of the year it is necessary to make subsitutions for a specific ingredient as the ingredient that was used in one Lot# may not be available in a Lot # designed several months later from the same Vendor throughout the year due to seasonality, import restrictions or other circumstances.

As a result there can be a different color, texture, smell and overall appearnce to a Lot# (i.e. Herbal Formula) as each Lot# has several different ingredients which can be purchased from different Vendors throughout the year. Each Vendor has its own manufacturing process which can result in one herbal ingredient being fluffy powder and from a different Vendor the same ingredient can be denser/heavier and appear as grainy, sandy or clump together ---- as the processing technique varies from Vendor to Vendor --- whereby one Vendor grinds herbs down to a fine powder and another Vendor does not use the same process and the end result can be a textured product in its more 'natural state' as less manufacturing processes were used on the material.

We have been using these various herbs for several years without incident.

But we must all stay alert because like any food there always exists the possibility of allergies or a lack of tolerance and because these herbs and classified as a food,  the possibly of an allergic reaction should always be a consideration.

 If  by chance you should feel that your experiencing a  negative effect,  stop the herbs immediately wait two days or until symptoms recede,  and then start again with 1/2 the dosage.


What suggestions are there on how to give herbs to my cat or dog?

Dogs and cats can be given powdered herbs, powder herb extracts, and liquid herb extracts in their meals. If your pet's appetite is poor because of illness or learned preferences, you may need to disguise the taste further by using especially strong-smelling foods: like tuna, sardines, liverwurst or braunsheiger. For some pets, Baby Food or canned Cat Food is such a novelty that they will take the herbs mixed with these foods. Some pharmacies and veterinary manufacturers make a flavored "tab wrap" or "pill pocket" for dogs and cats; these are especially designed to hide small tablets. Other tasty treats to hide herbs include cream cheese, jelly, peanut or other nut butters, ground meat or liver (beef or chicken), and fruit. Applesauce is particularly recommended by some herbalists. Flavored gravies for pets can also be used to dilute the herbs and mask the taste. *

If your pet's appetite is suppressed due to illness, do not mix medicines in regular meals-administer the herbs separately in a different food treat or in empty gel caps or via oral syringe behind the tongue.

Powdered herbs may be mixed into small "pills" of butter, then frozen to increase firmness. You can blend them with anchovy paste, organic peanut butter, jelly, jam, sandwich pastes, or other thick tasty foods.

It may be easier in some cases to administer the powdered herbs by mixing them into a liquid (usually hot so that powdered herbs 'dissolve' either with boiled liquid/water or by placing the 'mixture' of liquid/water and powdered herbs in a microwave for 5-7 seconds and then letting cool off) that is to be gently and slowly administered by syringe. Vehicles that have been recommended include meat or poultry broth, clam juice, flavored syrups, and fruit juice.

You can take advantage of your cat's fastidiousness by mixing the herb in a hair ball gelor Laxatone vegemite or anchovy paste, and smearing it on his or her paws-only very sick cats will let that insult go unchallenged! Some herbalists make traditional teas using meat broth instead of plain water, then frozen in ice cube trays to preserve until the day of use.

If gel capsules must be administered you can buy these on our website or we can encapsulate for you at $15 per bottle for 200 capsules. (choose one of these options: Empty Gel Capsules or Encapsulation Fee just before you checkout from your shopping cart) The gel capsules often "go down" more easily if one end is covered in butter or olive oil. Be sure to administer water or broth afterward to ensure that the capsule passes quickly from the esophagus to the stomach.

The other option is by oral syringe...mixing enough water to dissolve the herbs and make a solution and using an oral syringe you can give it by squirting it down the very back of the throat. After a few times it becomes easier to use this method. The option for oral syringe is at time of checkout also.

Can the herbs be administered with meals or is it better on an empty stomach?

Whatever works best for your pet would be the simple answer to this question. Sometimes the herbs can upset one animals stomach and the same herbs on an empty stomach do not bother the next animal. Mixing into food does not effect the long term efficacy of the herbs and it can have a settling effect to give with the food with the herbs.

What else can I do for my dog to get rid of these lumps while using Pawhealer's Dissolve?
Immediately get your dog off of any food that contains GRAINS, rice, wheat, barley, oats, etc. We want  a grain restricted menu of foods. We recommend Wellness-Core (grain free) and Natural Balance (grain free) and better yet...the very best thing you can do for your dog is home cooked foods.

We also have offers for recommended products which are the Garlic Tabs and Thyro.....both of these are considered whole food therpay and added to your dogs food each day along with the herbs.
How do I know that Dissolve is working?
First thing that Dissolve does is a softening up of lipomas. Once the lipomas are softened up, then Dissolve will begin reducing their size. To check the progress...at the very start get some wax paper...circle the lumps and keep that wax paper measurement as your reference tool. Check the lump against this measurement tool every two weeks.
How do these herbs come to us?

These herbs are a loose powder form. They are a 5:1 concentration of raw herbs made into powder, called granules.

For additional charge of $15 per bottle we will encapsulate for you, this will yield 200 capsules per bottle.

At check, out we also offer you the option to purchase empty capsules, $5.00 for 200 empty gel caps.

We also offer a liquid oral syringes for  $2.00. Use by mixing warm water with the herbs,  to squirt down the back of your dog's throat.

Should I tell my veterinarian that I am giving my cat or dog herbs?

YES....its always important that all doctors know what we ourselfs are taking as well as our pets.

Many people hide this information from their pet's doctor, we feel that  you should be able to discuss the health of your cat or dog openly with your pet's primary physician, and if you can't and you feel intimidated,  then you need to look for a doctor that you feel you can communicate with open and honestly.

Not telling your vet isn't the answer...the answer is working with a vet who understands your values and will work with you while ensuring the safety of your pet.

We would appreciate if you would share the success of the herbs with your vet....in the hopes that some day herbal medicine will have a much wider acceptence.

Can I give herbs to my cat or dog while also taking other medicines?

Yes,  however we suggest that you give herbs and medicines 1 -2 hours apart from one another so that you can get the full benefit of each.

Always remember to tell your veterinarian what herbs you have decided to give your pet..this includes all supplements as well.

Can I make a week's worth of herbal decoction of the different herbal formulas I have to make it easier to administer for my family and pet care people?

Once you make a  decoction  of mixing herbs together with water or honey and expose the herbs to the elements then decompostion begins. It is not a good idea to keep these decoctions for more than (3)  three days. And these decoctions SHOULD be refrigerated. We have had customers who have made  and frozen them and this seems to work out fine. But keeping them for longer than (3) three days unfrozen is not advisable

Since they are fresh (dried) herbs - should they be refrigerated?

The fresh (dried) herbs and/or the liquid forms do not necessarily have to be stored in the refrigerator. Unless the place where they are stored is prone to extreme humid and hot conditions, then storing them in a cool dry place should be sufficient.
