It is not a medicine so these are only suggestions and does not have to be given everyday. According to herbalist, Greg Tilford, it’s safe to use every day but because it’s so nutrient dense, it may cause diarrhea and digestive upset if feeding too much. According to Tilford, a daily amount of 1/4 teaspoon per pound of food is generally safe, while cats would require 1/2 teaspoon.
