      How it works  

      Stomach Ease is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Ping Wei San, used to treat a variety of digestive disorders. It is often used as a base formula and it combines well with other formulas. In veterinary herbal medicine, this formula is frequently used to treat poor appetite or indigestion following surgery or antibiotic therapy. As a warming formula, it is also useful in cases where animals have been fed a diet of predominately cold or raw foods, and their digestion has subsequently been affected.

      Traditional understanding 

      In TCM, it is considered very important to keep the digestive fire alive. Excess consumption of raw or cold foods, antibiotic use or surgery can all dampen this fire, weakening digestive function. The herbs in this formula are warm and aromatic, to 'cut through' any stagnant fluids or 'dampness' that has accumulated, and stimulate proper digestive function.
