Hello, I'm Dr. Kara. I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment to review your concerns. I am waiting to see what the particular ingredients are and then I will give you my recommendations.

If this capsule is purely a blend of probiotic bacteria (4 billion live bacteria) let me know that too.

How much does Kate weigh?

Was it only one capsule of this supplement?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
green tea extract 100mg; caralluma fimbriata extract (for craving control) 166mg that all of it
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
she about 7months old and weighs approx. 6-7lbs
the vet did not put her weight on my paperwork from her last visit
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Kara, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Thanks very much.

I want to make sure that this was only one capsule/dose of this mix?

Is there any caffeine amount listed on the label? Some green tea products are decaffeinated and some are not.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no caffeine ....she is pretty tough..just got her spayed a few weeks ago and even drugged she was trying to jump around, etc. had to keep her in her carrier overnight so she didn't hurt herself, next day when drugs had worn off she was jumping, pounding and playing with my older cat...acting just like normal!!
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
one capsule containing the above ingredients
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
wait...I just found it on the floor she ate something else...should be OK!!!
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Kara, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I am not worried about the probiotic part, digestive bacteria won't hurt her, although they are formulated for people, so aren't exactly what she needs.

Amylase, bromelain, lipase blend are all digestive enzymes. These might cause mild stomach upset, but most dogs handle them just fine.

Caralluma fimbriata extract is an appetite suppressant. That should not hurt her either.

The only real concern would be the green tea extract, IF it contained caffeine. Since it does not she should be fine.

Ah, I see she didn't eat the supplement at all, very good then, no worries.
