What is Yunnan Baiyao:
Yunnan Baiyao is a prized Chinese Herbal Medicine used to stop bleeding (both internally & externally). It can be used externally on open cuts, wounds and tumors; or, Yunnan Baiyao can be used internally for severe bruising, bleeding ulcers, blood or urine in stools, nosebleeds, tumors and post surgery. Yunnan Baiyao is also used to reduce inflammation, provide pain relief, to tonify the blood (i.e. snake bites) and promote healing.
Yunnan Baiyao is commonly used to extend the life of dogs (and cats) with bleeding cancers such as hemangiosarcoma or nasal cancer (nosebleeds). Some treatments for cancer, such as Chemotherapy, tend to promote bleeding; it makes sense that giving a supplement to promote blood clotting would be a benefit. It is believed that Yunnan Baiyao works by activating the platelets, which are the small blood components that help make the blood clot. Blood clots are the first step in a scab. They are like little plugs or corkes in the way they stop hemorrhage.
*Used in both human and animal (cat, dog, horse) applications - in both everyday accidents and emergencies.
Yunnan Baiyao also helps to relieve muscle pain associated with exercise and supports the health of the tissues, the immune system, and the nervous system.
Yunnan Baiyao Dosage for Dogs:
Yunnan Baiyao should be used only after consultation and in cooperation with your dog’s veterinarian.
How much to give? These are general guidelines:
For dogs under 10 lbs, give 1 capsule by mouth one time a day.
For dogs from 10 to 30 lbs, give 1 capsule by mouth two times a day.
For dogs above 30 but less than 60 lbs, give 2 capsules two times a day.
For dogs above 60 lbs, give 2 capsules three times a day.
Do not give Yunnan Baiyao on an ongoing basis. It is best to give it on alternating days, or for a 5-day on, 5-day off cycle that repeats. There is some possible evidence that this medicine may elevate liver markers if given daily for prolonged periods of time.
1 package contains 16 Capsules, plus one "magic" Red Capsule (traditionally used internally for emergencies.)
