Hi there, I had read that it is much better to give the non-synthetic (natural) kind of CoQ10.
So I give this CoQ10 (non-synthetic) one day:
And then I had also read that CoQ10 is better absorbed when given with a little oil, so I use this kind one day (can't tell for sure if this one is non-synthetic or not)
This seems to work well. I was giving cardiostrength, but I have problems with it because the pill is so big and my cats are little. It's too big to put down their throats. I tried putting it in their food and they wouldn't eat it. So I had it compounded, but it ends up so gunky-like compounded I didn't like that either. So I have been adding in sprinkled Taurine and L-carnitine in their food. I also have separate DMG liquid and Omega 3's.

Tigger is impossible to pill, and if I tried to hold him down to force the issue, he'd probably have a little kitty heart attack. So I give him his beef-flavored liquid atenolol mixed in his wet food twice a day, along with l-lysine for his herpes.
