I haven't purchased it yet because I wanted advice as to what is best.
Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 6 years ago.

Your options would be:

 

Dried herb - 50mg every 8-12 hours

 

Tincture (usually in 40%-70% ethanol): 0.5ml every 8-12 hours.


I hope this helps!

You don't think it will do her harm, do you?

Expert:  CriticalCareVet replied 6 years ago.

No - this should not cause harm and is a common herbal supplement that can be used for cats.
