One of those times where the company has to be called or emailed, and dependent on the strength, some math will have to be done just like every other brand that's not specifically for cats and dogs.


But if you can find something that's standardized to 333mg per 20 drops/ml, you can use their "Calculate the Dosage" calculator here:

They also have one with Dandelion in it too if you wanted to boost things.

My head can't keep up with all of the posts, but I did want to point out something from Dr. Hofve's site:

Quote
NOTE:  Consumer Lab® released a report in December 2009 regarding test results from 10 commercial milk thistle preparations. Only Jarrow Formulas® Milk Thistle contained the industry standard 70% silymarin; all the rest fell short. They suggest using a product containing milk thistle “seed extract” as opposed to “seed powder” or “whole herb” to get the most silymarin.

If you're not worried about potency as much, then don't worry about the above, but just be aware that other brands may say they have x% milk thistle extract but may actually have even less.
