I personally wouldn't give anything to Whimsy without checking with her vet first. Just my opinion.

I agree with Evelyn. since I am on Warfarin, I have been educated about a lot of natural remedies and OTC drugs. So many of the herbs will thin the blood and taken with prescription or OTC drugs, you can not know the effect if you are not an expert. Cayenne and ginger tend to thin the blood and if taken with a blood thiner can cause serious problems. Course most green herbs are full of Vit K and could thicken the blood. I am for only giving what the Vet recommends. I will say that Aloe would be good for a slight burn.
