Essiac is for Pets as Well as People

Using essiac with pets has become increasingly popular in recent years. Many people wonder if essiac is something they can give to their pets. The answer is: Yes! We give our own animals essiac tea when they need it.

Many animals including countless cats and dogs have taken our essiac over the years. The essiac suggested serving size for pets are our personal recommendations based on over 30 years of experience in the essiac tea business.

When Our Pets are Sick, It's All We Can Think About

Pets are near and dear to the heart of any family. When they aren't well, it affects everyone! We worry about our pets when they aren't feeling well and life is much better (and much less expensive!) when they are happy and healthy! And finding something that helps with no side effects is the name of the game. That's why many pet owners reach for essiac first when their animal needs help. You may also combine veterinary care along with essiac tea if you prefer.

Here are the suggested serving sizes for essiac and pets when you wish to improve their health.

If your pet weighs up to 15 lbs.
START WITH 1/4 oz. of tea twice per day. 1/4 oz. is 7 mL if you are using a dropper. If tolerated well, work up to 1/2 oz. of tea twice per day. 

If your pet weighs 15-35 lbs.
START WITH 1/2 ounce twice per day. If tolerated well, Work up to 1 ounce twice per day. 1/2 oz. is 14 mL if you are using a dropper.

If your pet weighs 35-55 lbs.
START WITH 1 ounce twice per day. If tolerated well, work up to 2 ounces twice per day.

If your pet weighs 55-85 lbs.
START WITH 2 ounces twice per day. Work up to 3 ounces twice per day.

If your pet weighs 85 lbs. or more
START WITH 3 ounces twice per day. Work up to 3 ounces three times per day. 

Why do I need to build up?

Dogs, cats and most other pets have shorter digestive systems than humans, and therefore will be more susceptible to diarrhea. Due to this reason, the intake of essiac must be balanced against the downside of your pet suffering with diarrhea if the dose is too high. If you start out with a conservative dose as noted in the chairt and build up the dose over time you will have a better chance of the pet adapting to a higher dose. Through experimentation, you'll need to find the level of essiac intake that works best for your pet.

Important Note on Giving Essiac to Pets

It's best when this tea is taken on an empty stomach. If you can give the essiac to your pet away from meal times, that is ideal.

  • If you need to mix the essiac with the run-off from tuna or with broth in order to get it into the animal, that is the next best choice. Tuna works well for cats and low sodium broth (be sure it's free of onions and garlic) works well for dogs.
  • If you need to mix it with food in order to get your animal to take it, that is better than not giving it at all.
  • Some people use an eye dropper, syringe or a turkey baster to administer the essiac on an empty stomach, especially with cats. You may need to swaddle the cat and be sure to provide it slowly enough for him or her to swallow it.

Capules and tinctures are not as potent as the brewed tea and we do not recommend using them. However, if it's a capsule or tincture or nothing, then sure, go ahead with the capsule or tincture.

More Reviews on Essiac for Pets

"I gave the essiac to my horse as she had stepped on a nail and was dealing with infection. It took many months to become better and she still has a limp. We thought we were going to lose her, but we didn't. I hope Essiac had something to do with it :)"



"I took essiac along with accupuncture for a very painful neuralgia in my face. After 4. months of treatment the neuralgia is in remission—that is the fastest it has gone into remission! Years ago I gave it to my 12 year old beagle who had a cancerous growth on her leg. As long as I gave it to her the growth stayed down. She lived to be 17 years old when we put her to sleep because of a heart condition."

-Gerri Nicoll


"The customer service was very helpful explaining how the tea works for cats. The tea was very easy to brew and store. Our cat tolerated the tea very well and even liked it."



"I have been using it on my greyhound who was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and possibly cancer. She was diagnosed in September 2015 and is 12 years old. She is doing well......"

-Denaire Walker


"Lulu my fur baby had a mammary gland tumor…I used all the holistic approach from diet to herbals fighting cancer… I had been boosting her immune system to stay strong…

Long story short the tumor got safely removed, no cancer sign , no spread… i found her tumor when was still small and by using your tea as well as lots of other cancer fighting medicinal herbals I was able to stop this cancer to take over her body.

Basically we starved this cancer to death…She loved getting her essiac tea ! Your quality is amazing, easy to prepare…keep up the good job!"
