Here’s the thing about my dog chub chub. While he’s a great dog that has a lot of energy, he sometimes can have just a bit too much energy. This is especially true for when we go out for walks or are in environments where there tends to be a lot of debris around.
Now I do my best to protect chub chub, but he’s the type of dog that’s going to find a way to get into what he wants to get into. He’s a cute little pug that I’ve had for a long time and I want to make sure I do whatever it takes to make sure he’s a part of my family for as long as possible.
Chub chub a part from being really aggressive when I take him out also tends to be aggressive when it comes to playing with other dogs. This has led to instances of him being scarred really badly. And it doesn’t stop with rough play with other dogs either.
My pug can sometimes pick fights with animals he shouldn’t that roam around in our backyard due to our close proximity to the woods. I’m taking raccoons, beavers and ground hogs. The result is really bad cuts and gashes that have led to serious bleeding at times.
And it’s scary to me because when bleeding happens it happens suddenly and sometimes uncontrollably. Stopping it or even slowing it down becomes a challenge, because even if I can get it to the vet in time what’s to stop him from bleeding too much before he gets help?
This is where I started to look for solutions and I’m not just taking about conventional first aid kits for dogs. I’m talking about sometimes that would help to control if not stop bleeding altogether until I could get my pug to an emergency vet in these instances. That’s where I came across Yunnan Baiyao.
One thing I liked right away about it was that it was Chinese based. I know that in Chinese culture they tend to rely heavily on natural herbs and remedies to health problems and injuries versus quickly going to prescription based options that may also be good, but can come with more risk. Prescriptions also tend to be more expensive.
Before I continue I want to briefly describe what Yunnan Baiyao is just to make sure people are clear. Yunnan Baiyao is a form of first aid that can be used not only for dogs, but for people as well. Its main use is assisting with different types of traumatic injuries as well as internal bleeding.
It can be used in order to help out small cuts, various forms of bruises, swelling problems or internal injuries that can happen as a result of physical altercations or surgery related bleeding. In cases of having some form of cut or gash the treatment simply has to be placed on the spot of the bleeding in order to help. In cases of treating internal bleeding the treatment has to be swallowed.
Yunnan is able to stop bleeding, it can disperse blood stasis, help with blood circulation, diminish instances of pain, eliminate toxins and even lower swelling. In various studies that have been done concerning the drug it has been shown to reduce the bleeding duration and clotting duration.
As far as the ingredients go for the treatment, these are kept secret, by the producers, but some of the core ingredients are said to be as follows:
- Radix Notoginseng
- Ajuga Forrestii Diels
- Rhizoma Dioscoreae
- Rhizoma Dioscoreae Nipponicae
- Herba Geranii & Herba Erodii
- Dioscoreae Parviflora Ting
- Herba Inulae Cappae
These are the ingredients that were on the labels for the treatment sent to the US. I was told that not all ingredients are included.
Now this treatment might not seem like a big deal, but think about how it could help out in situations where your dog has a serious cut or bruise. I know it helped me out tremendously, because as soon as I got it my dog ended up getting badly bitten by another dog while play fighting. I applied Yunnan Baiyao and not only did it work, but it seemed to work like magic.
One of my issues is I wonder why Yunnan Baiyao isn’t more talked about at places like the vet or just in general. My thoughts are that vets don’t like the idea of people using anything they themselves aren’t familiar with. All they’ll do in most cases is offer up a more expensive approach or say that there’s a high risk in using something that they don’t approve of first.
I did a lot of research on Yunnan Baiyao, because I wanted to be sure the product was truly safe to use for my pug chub chub. It’s very clear in terms of what it does. The treatment was originally used in 1902 in order to help Chinese soldiers who had suffered serious would to stop from bleeding out when battling against the Japanese. It saved lives and from this standpoint it’s something everyone should have then, not just for use with dogs.
As of this writing Yunnan Baiyao is produced legitimately by Yunnan Baiyao Group LTD. This is said to be one of the best state pharmaceutical companies in the country of China. I’ve seen how well it works and I’ve definitely added it to my first aid kit not just for my dog, but for me and my loved ones as well.
Serious speaking, not trying to convince people to purchase this treatment, but I’m telling you it does work very well to stop bleeding. It works and as long as you make sure you purchase it from the right source, meaning a source you can trust has the good quality formulation, then you can be sure it will work for you when and if you should ever need it.
Think about it. It can buy precious time to get to an emergency room to get other help, lower infection risks and decrease the chances of complications due to serious bleeding externally and internally.
