In a healthy dog, the heart, a fire element (yang), and the kidney, a water element (yin), are balanced. Excessive emotional or physical stress and aging can diminish normal kidney function, which leads to the inability to control heat (heart fire) and subsequently allows nervousness to occur. Rehmannia, asparagus tuber, ophiopogon, and scruphularia all help to clear heat and restore balance.
Anxious behavior may also occur due to an imbalance of the heart itself and may take root as excess heat or agitation. Biota seed and polygala help to calm the spirit while preserving the dog or cat's unique personality.
Conducts the actions of the other herbs upward to the heart spirit.
