Introducing our anti-cough tea blend! We understand the distress that coughing can cause your beloved pet. Many respiratory issues stem from diet, just like in humans. At Hopewell Animal Hospital we’ve witnessed pets suffering from various conditions like GI disturbances, anxiety, lack of stamina, and more, often exacerbated by their food choices. We have found they respond remarkably well to TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine) food therapy. By utilizing our knowledge of food ingredients and their impact on health, Dr. Buchanan specializes in crafting personalized diets tailored to your pet’s unique needs, promoting optimal health and well-being.
In line with our commitment to holistic healing, we’re excited to share our #recipetuesday feature—a simple yet nourishing tea blend designed to soothe your pet’s cough.

Anti-Cough Tea


  • 1 teaspoon dry thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger (or use ginger tea as “base”)

  • 1 teaspoon dry rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon of honey


  • Steep in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes, then strain.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of honey
  • When cooled, add 1/4 cup to food, or alone if they’ll drink it.
