Chinese Herbal Pattern Definition

Chose this formula when there is hind- leg weakness for the more cold and tired pet. Yang is function, so when the hind-legs begin to weaken we look to the TCM Kidney system. The Kidneys house the essence (jing), think of the word vitality. When function of the lower back, hind legs,  and knees start to weaken, it is attributed to a decline of  Yang-Qi.  Yang is warming, thus when cold accumulates,  we want to warm Yang to strengthen the hind-legs, lower back and knees.

Chose this formula for the pet that is experiencing hind-leg weakness and seems to be running on the warmer side. Yin is cooling in nature, and Yin is substance, think Blood. If Yin is deficient, Yang will fail to transform, which balances the Heat of Yin.  Yin is what makes muscles supple and keeps internal organs nourished. We use this formula when we see substance on the decline.
