Yunnan Baiyao and ox bile – clearing up the confusion
I have heard from a number of people lately that Yunnan Baiyao also known as Yunnan Paiyao with ox bile should not be used in dogs. This seems to have been started from a post by a human chiropractor who has written a book on dog cancer. My understanding is that cow gallstone is part of all yunnan baiyao even if it is not labeled on the package. The exact formula is closely guarded and in spite of having ingredient lists now available it is still not known, so really none of us know exactly what is in it.
There is no reason that this product or other products that contain ox bile or ox gallstone in dogs should not be used. If you have an ethical dilemma to this that is a different argument. Us holistic vets have been using this product for years. I am sorry there is misinformation out there that may be getting in the way of people using a product that could be helping their animals.
