Agnus castus berries

Post by rattypetrolhead » Fri Jul 15, 2011 12:30 pm

I've just bought some from RR for my mentalist rat-eater Thirteen - she's been spayed but still shows (quite dramatic) signs of aggression towards other rats and also has 'mini-heats' (I think the vet may have missed something... :-? )... Thought I'd give these a whirl before trying a standardised extract - but how do I use them in her diet? Suggestions very much appreciated as she's a fussy eater too (wonky in everyway, she really is :roll: ).

We used to mix the berries in with their wet food.
However, we got the tincture as we could not control the quantity as much and did not really know how much to give.

Ta! :D I have to give her wet food regularly as she's anti-Dr Squiggles - so I might start with a couple each time and see what happens. It's worth a try at least!

Now I've moved her upstairs away from the other rats she's much better, more relaxed etc. Last night she even settled down under my pillow watching tv in bed! :love: It might be that we don't have to bother trying to 'enhance her calm' if she's happier without rats nearby... we shall see :luck:
