INDICATIONS: Homeopathic remedy to reduce discomfort from minor digestive problems such as: Constipation, loss of appetite, food regurgitation, or throwing up 20 minutes after eating.
FORMS: Liquid PACKAGE SIZE: 15 ml bottle
Kittens – 5 drops, 3 times daily. Adult Cats - 10 drops, 3 times daily.
Multiple cats: 5-10 drops per cat in community water.
Felines under 1 lbs. 1-2 drops in water, 3 times daily.
In acute cases the doses can be given every 15 minutes for the first hour, every 30 minutes in the second hour, once in the third hour, then reducing to one dose 3 times daily.
For cases that are not acute, give one dose 3 times daily. Once a response is seen, reduce to twice daily, and eventually once daily. If any reduction in dose or frequency leads to an immediate recurrence of symptoms, return to original dosing and continue a little longer before weaning down. If a remedy is effective and is not reduced, an aggravation of symptoms from overuse may occur. Stopping the remedy for 3 days will reverse the symptoms and treatment can begin with the original dose, weaning down as mentioned above.
ADMINISTRATION: Optimally, the liquid preparation should be dropped directly on to the mucous membrane of the mouth, including lips, by raising the head until the mouth opens. Where an animal finds this distressful or an owner is unable to comply, the medication can be put in the food, water or milk or added to a sprayer and misted into air or put onto bedding and allowed to evaporate. Where animals are sensitive to the odor of the alcohol preservative, a 10-20 minute period should be allowed for dilution and evaporation before the liquid or food is presented to the patient. Occasionally, animals will shake their heads as a response to the alcohol preservative and cats may salivate excessively, and in these cases presenting it in food, water or milk works.
For severe cases oral rehydration fluid can be medicated to the above dilution and given to the patient orally, taking care to avoid aspiration of the fluid into the respiratory tract by the patient. For acute cases it can be repeated as in the previous dosing section.
ADVERSE EFFECTS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS: None known, other than reversible effect of over dosage. Over dosage will result in a return of symptoms after the symptoms have initially disappeared. Where a return of symptoms occurs while on the medication, ceasing to use it will alleviate the effect. Patients who are hypersensitive to homeopathic preparations will show response to a single dose, which may not need to be repeated for some time. For this reason therapy should always start with a single dose the previous day and should a major response be seen, therapy should not be recommenced until symptoms relapse, and then only a single dose given for maximum effect. Although no evidence exists to the contrary, care should be taken with its use in pregnant animals as low potency homeopathics are historically not regarded as totally safe in pregnancy, despite their lack of chemicals. Should a suspected adverse reaction be seen or advice needed, please contact HomeoPet, LLC (contact information at bottom of sheet).
DRUG INTERACTIONS: None known for animal use only. Keep out of reach of children.
PHARMACEUTICAL PRECAUTIONS: Store at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, and away from strong odors.
