My vet sent me home with a chinese herb called Wei Ling Tang for Mr man's urinary issues. I've goggled it but can't seem to find a lot of information on it. Anyone have any comments on it?

Because I googled instead of goggled :)lol:) I found this site:

Acupuncture.com - Education - Zang Fu - Formulas - Wei Ling Tang

It looks like the product you have is not just one Chinese Herb but a "potion". It does provide a brief description of what each ingredient does. If you look under the "pinyin" column it lists the names of the individual herbs that are in it and you can google for more detail.

I'm a Chinese so I might be able to help a bit here :)

Wei Ling Tang is actually not one herb but a set of herbs mixed in specific propotions. The major functionality is to calm upsetting stomach and stop diarrhea. It can also be used to cure some skin deseases (don't know the English translation though) caused by "cold wetness" (a Chinese medicine term).

But it's a human medicine, and I'm not sure if it can be given to cats? Does it fit Mr Man's symptom? If you want to give it to your cat, please be careful with the portion. Also most Chinese medicine taste bitter, so you may want to figure out a way to hide the taste.

Thanks for contributing your knowledge. The vet said it's to help prevent another urinary block. He said he has a few other patients that had repeated blocks but successfully have not blocked since taken it.

and it is bitter....Mr man didn't like it one bit.
