Echinacea is used as an immunity booster. It causes an increase in the number of immune cells, further enhancing the overall activity of the immune system.
Dosage for rats:
It is recommended to use non-alcoholic enchinacea for pet rats.
Once a month, for one to two weeks, it is put in the rats’ water bottles. They get 6 drops per 8 ounces of water. Do not continually give your rats echinacea for they will build up a resistance to it and it will not be of any benefit.
