The capsules are certified Kosher and Halal, and meet all requirements of European Pharmacopoeia (EP), and the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).
For Cat's Claw Extract: Do not use if your pet is pregnant or nursing. Contraindicated for pets with leukemia. Consult with your Vet prior to use if your pet is scheduled for surgery, using blood thinners or have an autoimmune disease. Cat's Claw has been clinically documented with immunostimulant effects and is contraindicated before or following any organ or bone marrow transplant or skin graft. Cat's Claw is contraindicated in pets whose owners are seeking to have them bred. There is a concern that cat's claw might make blood pressure control difficult during surgery. Stop taking cat's claw at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
For Pollen: Animals with an allergy to bee stings (bee venom), intolerance to honey, or allergy to ragweed/chrysanthemums should avoid bee pollen products. Honey has been known to cause small to severe allergic reactions in animals allergic to bees/pollen. Reaction can include anaphylaxis, an acute allergic response, which may be life threatening.
For Achiote: The seed extract was reported to elevate blood sugar levels in dogs, and it is therefore contraindicated for animals with diabetes.
For Zinc Sulphate: May be contraindicated for pets with gastrointestinal diseases (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, short bowel syndrome), for malabsorption syndrome, chronic liver disease, chronic renal disease, sickle cell disease, diabetes, malignancy, for vegetarians, pregnant and lactating animals
For Cat's Claw Extract: Cat's Claw may potentiate Coumadin and blood-thinning drugs and medications changed by the liver (Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) substrates) as Cat's claw might decrease how quickly the liver breaks down some medications. Some medications changed by the liver include lovastatin (Mevacor), ketoconazole (Nizoral), itraconazole (Sporanox), fexofenadine (Allegra), triazolam (Halcion), and many others. Taking cat's claw along with medication for the liver can increase the effects and side effects. May interact with medications for high blood pressure (Antihypertensive drugs) as Cat's claw may decrease blood pressure and/or cause your blood pressure to go too low. May interact with medications that decrease the immune system (Immunosuppressants) as Cat's claw might increase the immune system, decreasing the effectiveness of medications that suppress the immune system. Before giving cat's claw to your dog/cat, talk to your Vet.
For Pollen: Hypersensitivity reaction causing pruritus, headache, swelling, sneezing, anaphylaxis, hypereosinophilia, and eosinophilic gastroenteritis consisting of nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
For Achiote: None reported.
For Zinc Sulphate: Zinc may interact with quinolone antibiotics such as Cipro and tetracycline antibiotics such as Achromycin and Sumycin. Zinc can reduce the absorption and action of penicillamine, a drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Zinc may interact with Thiazide diuretics such as chlorthalidone (Hygroton) and hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix and HydroDIURIL).
For Cat's Claw Extract: Cat's Claw may reduce platelet aggregation and thin the blood. May lower blood pressure. Use caution if your pet has low blood pressure. Cat's claw might cause the immune system to become more active, and this could increase the symptoms of auto-immune diseases. If your cat/dog has one of these conditions, consult with your Vet provider.
For Pollen: Do not use if your pet has a hypersensitivity or allergy to pollen. Consult with your Vet if your pet is pregnant, nursing, has blood disorders or liver disease. Other potential effects include itching, headaches, inflammation, sneezing, anaphylactic shock, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
For Achiote: It might raise blood sugar levels and may potentiate medications used to treat hypertension. Do not use if your pet is pregnant or nursing.
