My dog has hemangiosarcoma and is currently taking Yunnan Baiyo and I'm Yunity mushrooms in addition to chemotherapy. A veterinary chiropractor recommended Stasis Breaker to me but I want to make sure there will not be negative interactions with the supplements he is already on. Is it safe to give?
Thank you for your question! There are no known interactions between Jing Tang herbs and other supplements. As long as you take them at your veterinarian's direction, they are safe to give. Thank you for supporting Chinese Medicine, and I hope the herbs, mushrooms, and chemo help your dog feel better.
How big are these capsules
Thank you for your question! Each 0.5g capsule is 3/4" long and 1/4" wide.
Would 8 capsules at a time be too much for an 84 pound dog? I have the 50 concentrated capsules from my vet , was prescribed 4 capsules twice daily, was given two bottles and we gave our dog 4 capsules from each bottle not realizing the bottles were the same at the time.
Thank you for your question. This is unlikely to cause any side effects in your dog other than mild gastrointestinal distress. However, please contact your vet with any questions, as your vet knows your pet best and is able to give specific medical advice regarding your pet.
I am in Canada. My vet managed to get Jing Tang concentrated stasis breaker for me. No strength of capsules listed on label. Under directions for use it only says For cats:1 cap once a day. I am trying to determine correct dosage for my 80 pound golden retriever with lymphoma. There are 50 capsules in this bottle. Went to the trouble to get this, now I am worried the one capsule per day is a waste of time. Thank you for your help
Thank you for your question! We can help you.
If you have concentrated Jing Tang capsules in a quantity of 50, they are 0.2g concentrated capsules.
Normally these are given to cats, but you can give them to your dog, you will just go through them faster.
We typically recommend the 0.5g concentrated capsules #100 for large dogs or 90g concentrated powder.
Here are dosing instructions.
Concentrated 0.2g Capsules #50: One 0.2g capsule for small dog/cat once a day <10lbs.
Concentrated 0.5g Capsules #100: One 0.5g capsule per 20 to 40 lb of body weight twice daily.
Concentrated 90g Powder: 0.1g to 0.25g per 10 to 20lbs twice daily.
Your vet can help you determine what dose in those ranges is appropriate for your pet.
