following my previous question about my renal insuficient cat, I have found a Rhemania 8 formula but suddenly have questions about it (I've read different formulas on the net)
my cat is taking a spoon of Epakitin morning and evening
plus one pill of felimazole for hyperthyroidism every two days (thiamizole 5 mg)
can I still give her Rhemania 8 formula?
I have bought a pot and it says "concentrated powder" for humans put one teaspoon in hot water and drink like tea
how much should I give to my skinny cat (around 5.5 lb)? how?
is the formula correct?
(shu di huang 29% shan zhu yu 15% shan yao 15% gui zhi 4% fu zi 4% ze xie 11% fu ling 11% mu dan pi 11%)
I read different ones on the net it makes me scared ^^
I am glad that you have a concentrated formula because your tiny cat will need so little that hopefully it will be easier to give. Generally pets need a much higher dose per pound than a human. Therefore, the dose for your cat is 1/8 to 1/6 of a teaspoon twice to three times per day. You can give the Rehmannia 8 either by mixing it with a small amount of clam juice or fish liquid and squirting it in her mouth using a dosing syringe or eye dropper, or by mixing it with her food. It is a safe herbal formula even with hyperthyroid medication.
