QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I noticed, on the back of the bottle, it states to evaporate alcohol place drops in hot water. How much hot water? Do I place all 5-10 drops in hot water, let cool, then place in my cat's food? I concerned about the alcohol. My cat has stage 2 kidney disease and will be taking Gabapentin. Is this safe to use with the Gabapentin?
Thank you for your question!
We are not aware of any interactions with Gabapentin. However, we recommend checking with your vet to make sure this herbal formula is appropriate for your kitty's situation and medical condition.
While the herbal extracts can be given as-is, we recommend the following strategies to make them more palatable.
Here are a couple of those strategies:
1) Add water or broth to the herbal extract.
2) Small doses can be hidden in canned food or ground meat
3) If your pet takes pills, you can add the herbal extract to a capsule.
4) Simmer the extract in a pan on very low heat to evaporate off the alcohol. Initially, the aroma of alcohol will be strong - once it becomes barely detectable, remove the liquid from the heat and replace it in the bottle. Then, refrigerate the bottle.
We hope these ideas help increase the palatability of herbal extracts for your pet!
