As part of the renowned Kan Herb Company, Kan Essentials provides classic Traditional Chinese Medicine formulas tailored and adapted for veterinary use. These formulas were adapted by Dr. Steve Marsden, DVM, ND,MSOC,L.Ac. His extensive training and experience in veterinary medicine, acupuncture, and Chinese herbology have enabled him to extend the powerful healing modalities of TCM to care for pets and animals of all sizes.
Along with the rest of the Kan Herb Company family, Kan Essentials are manufactured in their California facility according to cGMP standards. They rigorously test raw materials for purity, potency, and proper plant identity, all especially important criteria when dealing with imported Chinese herbs. These tests are also validated by independent third-party laboratories, providing certificates of analysis for each and every ingredient. These steps ensure safe and efficacious products for you and your pets.
Kan Essentials has 99 products on offer, including both tablets as well as herbal liquid tincture formulas, which are less common in TCM but convenient for dosage with smaller pets. Some formulas come by very familiar names and use, such as Happy Wanderer or Harmonize the Qi. Others are named after common issues for pets like Dry Derma Relief or Benefit Hips and Knees Formula. As with any TCM formula, we suggest that you work with a vet or acupuncturist familiar with using Chinese herbs for animals.
