echinacea for cats?
After reading about use of echinacea to boost the immune system in cats, I started my big orange marmalade tabby on a routine of tincture of echinacea today in the hope that he will have a better winter for it. He's an inside cat, twelve years old, and I have been thinking that he's slowing a little bit in the last month. I'm using pediatric strength tincture, several drops three times a day. Unfortunately, this stuff has an orange flavor so I have to mix it with a little baby food chicken meat.

Do any of you see a holistic veterinarian and use herbal supplements for your kitties?

1. My granddog (may she rest in peace) lived a lot longer...
than she would have if my stepdaughter had not had a holistic veterinarian. Of course she lives in the Hudson Valley and alternative medicine is not frowned upon there as it is in Oklahoma. I have a really good veterinarian but I have had to lay the law down when I thought he was not doing what was in my furbaby's best interest. He now swears by tea tree oil thanks to me. Has kept a lot of animals being put in steroids unnecessarily.
