Do you need a diagnosis from a Vet to make a prescription herbal treatment?
If your cat needs help with a particular condition, we recommend that you make sure he or she indeed has that condition before you order a particular herbal treatment. If however, you wish to treat your cat for general debility, or a chronic condition or very obvious symptoms, go ahead and place an order, completing it with any further information that might help Robert fine-tune the herbal tonic for your cat.
If you are not sure which herbal treatment on our website will suit your cat’s needs best, please proceed directly to order a prescription herbal treatment for your cat by giving Robert the information he needs to make one.

How long is a course of herbal treatment? How long does one bottle of herbal tonics last for?
A herbal treatment usually should be given for 12 weeks, after which we recommend you get back to Robert with a progress report.

What is the recommended diet for a cat on herbal medicine?

Robert recommends the following diet to support natural healing in a cat:

Raw muscle meat with bones (chicken thighs and drumsticks or whole carcass of rabbit or chicken), raw heart, raw liver.

To support hair, skin and nail healing in your cat, giving your cat 2 teaspoons of crushed millet & linseed made into porridge once daily as it contains the mineral silica which is an important mineral for hair, skin and nails, will help.

How does my cat benefit from the Bach Flower Remedies in your herbal treatments?

Cats like all other animals are affected by their experiences and form habits in dealing with stressful situations. In nearly all cases, supporting the cat in dealing with stress and changing stress-based behavior helps healing from physical conditions as well as preventing relapse.
The Bach Flower remedies are dilutions from flowers that have been known to support people and animals in recovering from trauma, emotional crises and changes of life or situation. Robert McDowell has been using them in combination with herbal extracts for decades now and will almost certainly modify your cat’s treatment with Bach flower remedies that are specific to your cat’s emotional needs.
