Skin infections are one of the most commonly treated conditions in veterinary practice. They can be frustrating for both pet caretaker and veterinarian alike, especially when it comes to infections laden with antibiotic resistant bacteria such as the Methicillin Resistant Staph (MRS) bacteria. These infections typically are either superficial or can extend into deep tissues. They can be very difficult to treat even with aggressive therapies due to the lack of antibacterial efficacy. However, there are other therapies that are available that are “new” to the western world but have been utilized for hundreds of years in China.

These treatments are utilized by qualified TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) doctors and show great promise in the fight against resistant bacteria. These treatments include several therapies including acupuncture and herbal therapy. This writing will focus on the Chinese herbal formula Golden Yellow Powder.
