Q: I am wanting to use DCA with my cats as well, one who is being tested for possible lymphoma. Do you have any recommended dosages for pets/animals, or can I just use the dosage calculator and plug in their weight (10-15 lbs.)? Thank you so much for your website. It is greatly appreciated. Jason B.
A: Dear Jason,
thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately, we do not have a lot of information on scientific literature, which discusses cancer treatment in cats. We would recommend you to not exceed 10 mg/kg of DCA.
Start by giving your pet half of the recommended dose (5 mg/kg). If she tolerates the medication without any visible side effects, increase the dose to 10 mg/kg after 21 days. The schedule should be 14 days on, 7 days off (for flushing out the excess DCA). Once done, repeat the cycle.
Your best bet would be to order it from Amazon or to check our listed suppliers.
