The Journey to Harmony

We all want our pets to live longer, healthier lives. How can you help your pet live a longer, healthier life? PET | TAO’s founders, Dr. Marc Smith and Dr. Casey Damron, are here to show you how!

Drs. Smith and Damron practice veterinary medicine daily, accumulating over 30 combined years of veterinary experience. Their daily work with animals revealed one particular health pattern:

Poor diet and inadequate nutrition result in chronic illness.

But what constitutes a good diet and adequate nutrition? Western guidelines left some of the doctors’ concerns unanswered. Thus began their journey into Eastern Food Therapy.

Food is medicine. Feeding the correct food for your pet improves his or her health in amazing ways. Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron found the key to longer, healthier lives for pets: the right food. Using little-known Eastern concepts, they created PET | TAO.

Fabulous food & products using Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).

Food Energetics

Food Energetics is an Eastern philosophy. Instead of caloric energy, TCVM food therapy sees each naturally occurring food as having an innate energetic quality: warming, cooling, or neutral. 

The Five Element Theory 

The Five Element Theory embodies the five major body organs: heart, spleen, lung, kidney, and liver. 

In short, it describes how consum­ing specific foods can help improve the functioning of the major organs. 

Yin & Yang

According to Yin & Yang philosophy, a body out of balance is prone to illness.

Subsequently, bringing the body back into balance restores harmony and health.

Examples of Yin and Yang Health Challenges

Yin and yang deficiencies are simple examples of energetic imbalance. 

The underlying imbalances cause obvious symptoms in pets.

For instance, Yin Deficiency often leads to:

  • Insomnia

  • Overheating

  • Weight Loss

  • Excessive Thirst

And, Yang Deficiency often leads to: 

  • Mental Lethargy

  • Bloating

  • Sore Joints

  • Cold Extremities

Western medicine often uses pharmaceuticals to mask the symptoms of energetic imbalance.

Eastern medicine, on the other hand, works on the root cause. In other words, Eastern medicine uses food, herbs, acupuncture, etc. to naturally bring your pet back into balance.

Luckily, PET | TAO Solution formulas help bring energetically unbalanced pets back into balance.
