Propolis dosage and duration for cats?
I have a household of kitties - 5 in all. One of which is quite elderly and has recently suffered an ulcer in his mouth. I have treated him with antibiotics as reccommended by the vet and have given him coloidal silver periodically and some vitamin C to help with the healing. My other 4 cats live seperatly from him, but they run the risk of the occasional sneeze and watery eye. One of them is FIV positive, so I want to give them and especially him the best defence to ward off illness. I have recently come accross the information on bee propolis and was interested in the dosage and how long to give to a cat that has the cat cold. I currently give them 250mg of L-Lysine daily and increase it to 500mg if there are signs of cat cold. Just curious if all things "Bee" can help, if it's something administered daily for maintenance, or just in times of need, and how much to give.
Thanks so much for your help,
Yes, you certainly can give cats propolis. I would recommend either the water based tincture or the powder/capsules (open the capsules and dump the powder into their food) As for the tincture, 1/4 dropper full should be sufficient and for the capsules, a quarter capsule is plenty to start with.
Hope that helps with your furry friends!
Bee Propolis for Pregnant Cats
(Twin Falls, ID)
Is bee propolis safe for pregnant cats?
I have a pregnant cat that is also suffering from several small partially healed wounds and abscesses on her hip that she got from scratches as a result of mating. We want to treat the injuries with bee propolis, both internally and on the exterior of the wounds. Is it safe for her gestating babies?
We ordered the alcohol tincture before we knew she was pregnant. If it is safe to use, how much should we give her as an oral antibiotic, and how many drops are right for the external application?
I'd certainly be cautious using the alcohol based tincture with a pregnant cat. You might want to consider using a water based product instead.
I just don't know how the alcohol will affect the babies as I don't have much experience using propolis in cats, let alone pregnant cats. Always better to error on the side of caution.
