    Managing cat and dog health the easy, stress-free way using our range of 100% natural, oral remedies for pets.

    If you’re looking for an easy and stress-free way to manage the health needs of your cat or dog, then our remedies could be the answer. They’re designed to simplify the dosing process by adding them to the water bowl, food or a treat as part of your pet’s daily routine. Our range of pet remedies come in a natural sweet glycerine base without any distinctive flavours or smells, so they often go unnoticed – even by the fussiest of felines.

    Read on to find out more about how to dose your cat or dog, and how to adjust dosing for kittens or puppies.

    Dosing options for cats – a stress-free guide

    Cats, known for their discerning nature, often present a challenge when it comes to health management and taking supplements and medications. Our range of remedies for pets overcome this hurdle by providing an easy way to dose your cat without causing them stress or leaving you with scratches.

    How to dose your cat

    If you have more than one cat that needs a remedy like BioPet Fleas & Ticks, then one dose in a shared water bowl can provide cover for multiple animals. However if only one of your cats requires dosing, we recommend using either the food or direct dosing methods below so that other pets don't receive an unnecessary dose from the water bowl. These methods apply for most of our remedies. If specific dosing regimens are needed for a particular remedy, instructions will be provided with your purchase.

    Water bowl dosing your cat:

    The easiest and most effective way to dose most cats is to add the remedy to their water bowl. The remedy usually goes undetected, and this dosing method means they get a fresh dose every time they take a drink. It doesn’t matter how much or little water they drink during the day as the frequency of dosing is more important than the quantity of remedy they ingest.

    Food dosing for cats:

    Our remedies are naturally sweet and don’t have a distinctive flavour or smell, so most cats don’t mind them being added to their food twice a day. If they are especially resistant, try mixing the remedy in a bit of gravy or milk. 

    Direct dosing:

    For more compliant cats, a remedy can be dabbed directly onto their chin, lips, or their paw. They will instantly lick the remedy off, putting the remedy in contact with their tongue, gum, or lips where the active ingredients are absorbed.

    Last resort dosing:

    For particularly tricky cats needing an urgent dose, apply remedy to a damp cotton ball then gently dab onto their anus.

    Dosing kittens

    The methods for dosing kittens are the same, however from 0-4 weeks, give half the recommended dose to accommodate for their smaller size and developing systems. Detailed dosing instructions are included with each purchase, ensuring safe and effective use from a young age.

    Dosing options for dogs

    Dogs typically love our naturally sweet remedies and often see them as a treat, which makes dosing very easy! When it comes to dosing adult dogs of different sizes, the dosing quantity remains the same. That’s because our remedies contain homeopathic ingredients that activate when they come into contact with a mucous membrane such as the tongue, gums or lips. So, how often they drink – and get a dose of remedy - is more important than how much remedy they drink.

    How to dose your dog 

    If you have more than one dog that needs a remedy like BioPet Fleas & Ticks then one dose in the water bowl can provide cover for multiple animals. If your dogs have separate water bowls, each bowl will need a separate dose administered. If only one of your dogs requires dosing, we recommend using either the food, treat or direct dosing methods below. These methods apply for most of our remedies. If specific dosing regimens are needed for a particular remedy, instructions will be provided with your purchase.

    Water bowl dosing your dog:

    This is the easiest and most effective form of dosing as your dog will get a fresh dose every time they take a drink. How often they drink from their dosed water bowl is more important than how much they drink, so making sure they have one main source of water can be helpful.

    Food dosing for dogs:

    Most dogs aren’t fussy about their food, so don’t mind remedy being added, and actually enjoy the naturally sweet taste.

    Treat dosing:

    For those that are suspicious of remedy being added to their food or water bowl, or for times when your dog needs a dose of remedy quickly, remedy can be pumped onto a treat.

    Direct dosing:

    Lots of dogs see our remedies as the treat, and so are happy for it to be pumped straight into their mouth or will lick it off a spoon.

    Dosing puppies

    The methods of dosing are the same as for adult dogs, however from 0-4 weeks give half the recommended dose to accommodate for their developing systems. Detailed dosing instructions are provided with each purchase.
