What is Catnip?

Catnip is an aromatic herb that when used in moderation, induces a harmless physiological reaction in some cats. It can be applied to scratching posts or used in stuffed toys. Watch as your cat paws at it, chews or licks it, purrs, or even growls in joy over the treat. Your cat will love it!
For:
Cats (3 months of age or older)
 
Benefits:
Can give cats an intense, euphoric high
Can be an exercise stimulator for overweight cats
Temporary remedy for stressed cats
Owners enjoy seeing their cat's reaction

How it works:
Catnip is a plant in the mint family (it's also referred to as catmint). It contains nepetalactone, which causes the playful reaction that most cats experience. Cats detect nepetalactone through the outer layer of skin in their noses where the nepetalactone binds to one or more receptors where its thought to mimic a cat pheromone.

Cautions:
Do not give more than one teaspoonful of catnip more often than once a week. Some cats can react aggressively. If your cat becomes aggressive, stop using catnip and consider an alternative.


More Information:
 
Brand Name
Healthy Quality Catnip (SF Herb)

Active Ingredient(s):
Catnip

What is this product used for:
Catnip is a plant in the mint family. It is found throughout the United States and grows wild as a weed. Catnip is used as a treat.

Availability:
Catnip is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

How this product should be used:
Catnip should not be given more than once a week or the effects may diminish. Apply catnip to scratching posts or use catnip in stuffed toys. Most older cats will become excited or aroused as they smell, chew and eat catnip. When using freshly cut stems and leaves, bruise it slightly before giving to the cat.

What are the side effects:
Cats under 3 months of age do not usually respond to catnip. Not all cats are stimulated by catnip in the same way, and approximately one third of cats will not respond at all. The differences in response to catnip can be due to environmental factors, genetics and the gender (males usually respond more than females due to the effects of nepatalactone, the principle found in catnip). Typical responses to catnip include salivation, rolling and rubbing, running and leaping.

What special precautions are there:
Do not give more than one teaspoonful of catnip more often than once a week.

In the event of overdose:
Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

Catnip for Kitty Fun My cat loves to eat this catnip. He can't get enough of it! 08/15/2014
well I do...this stuff is great! ...I have never seen anything like this reaction to any other catnip product. First indication it was going to do the trick is she tried to open the package herself. I sprinkled some out into a box lid and she ate it...now she is curled up in the lid and rolling in it. I filled a sock with the rest and it is now her new best friend. I have bought toys supposedly filled with catnip but they lost Karma's attention within moments....love love this product! 08/09/2013
My cats are going crazy! I have tried multiple different brands of catnip for my cats over the years, some being a hit and some being a miss. I received a small back of this catnip when I had bought flee medicine for them and gave them a teaspoon and they both went wild! Definitely the best catnip they have ever had. 05/11/2013
loved it my cats all three loved it and two try to open themselves but cant thank goodness. They all go crazy for it. Roll in it and eat it and even try to take it from each other. It's cute. 08/23/2012
go skippy skippy my big cat went bonkers for the catnip. he loved it. he even tries to open the container by himself. it was a blast to see him so0 happy 08/19/2012

Answer: 
Catnip is not harmful if ingested by your cat, so you can sprinkle some on your cat's food if your cat enjoys this.

My cat eats catnip all the time and has never had a negative affect on her. It's no different then a human eating herbs and spies. If your concerned or if your cat has a sensitive stomach consult your vet first.

I volunteer at a cat shelter and one man does not want me to give the cats catnip saying that it can have a bad effect on them...I have never heard of this, any truth to it...most cats love it.

Answer: 
The only negative thing I have heard about giving kitties catnip, is to not give them too much...maybe a spoonful a week. I give my cat a spoonful once or maybe twice a week....some weeks not at all. I don't know why a limit was put on it....I just remember reading that on a vet. site.
Anyone else know anything about this??

Answer: 
You must be joking! Catmint aka catnip is a natural herb that grows wild in many locations. Cats' reaction to catnip is generally to first roll around in it, eat it, rub it all over themselves and then take a nap. My two cats love it and have never had even the slightest ill effect. Whoever this man is, he is obviously not very well educated about felines. Still doubting? Call a veterinarian.
