Anyone used yucca?
Any opinions, feedback, information, amusing stories?

Just bumping this up to see if anyone has opinions, etc.

I think you should give it a try as we discussed in this thread...

Well, I pulled out my big ol'book of herbs for animals and essentially what it said was that Yucca, in large quantities and/or over an extended period of time can cause stomach irritation and vomiting (as a side note apparently Native American's of the southwest used yucca preparations to induce vomiting).

So, I guess what makes me nervous is the possibility of stomach upset as really, we have so much stomach upset around here already adding to that would just be a bit much.

Maybe I'm being overly paranoid though?

But, if you do the 4 day on and 3 day off thing like Mary Straus suggests, I think it would be okay. She was really good about answering my email when I had a question awhile ago. Perhaps she will be of some help?
