Yunnan Baiyao is amazing.
The internal medicine vet suggested it about the same time she recommended starting Josie on Piroxicam. All she said was it was a Chinese medicine to help with bleeding that I could find on Amazon.
I used my Google-foo to learn more. The internet seemed to agree – this is a little miracle for dogs with bleeding issues. Kinda makes me wonder how it works on people – but I didn’t find much about people using it for themselves.
Within two hours, the trickle of blood had slowed.
That night, she even had a huge sneezing fit. The sneezing usually caused the blood to flow like a faucet. This time – she sneezed out blood but that was it. Not even trickle. After that, the bleeding stopped. Completely.
I don’t know if it was the Yunnan or the Piroxicam, or something else, all I know is Josie was starting to improve.
To this day, I’m a believer in the Yunnan Baiyao. Either its the best scam ever or it is indeed a miracle.
(A part of me does wonder, why didn’t they not suggest Yunnan Baiyao sooner?)
