Recommendation As A Supplement For Cats:

Initial Period - 4 To 6 Weeks

Under 10 lbs. - 1 capsule sprinkled on food daily

Over 10 lbs. - 2 capsules sprinkled on food daily

The capsule may instead be “pilled” if more convenient.

Economical Long Term Maintenance -

Once desired response is obtained, capsules may be given every other day for maintenance. Number of capsules given may be increased at any time depending on your cat’s needs. If your cat eats dry food, the food may be moistened with a small amount of water so that the powder sticks. Alternatively, the contents of the capsules may be mixed with a small amount (i.e., tablespoon) of wet or moist food to ensure your cat eats the entire amount.

This product is in a capsule to ensure an accurate amount is given to your cat.

Store in a cool, dry area out of direct sunlight.

Keep out of reach of children.

This bottle may contain a non-toxic desiccant.
