Can you give thyme and sodium benzoate together for megabacteria
Cutie has megabacteria and had been using sodium benzoate (her medicine) however since I am going for holiday for 3 weeks and the lady who is going to be keeping her is not comfortable about giving her the medicine.
So I thought about giving few stems like 1 or 2 short stems of thyme plant so she can munch on as I am stopping her medicine early by 2 weeks since you can give the medicine for 4 to 6 weeks I am giving her for only 4 weeks even though I feel like giving it to her for 6 weeks. I know that thyme alone may or may not be a replacement for her sodium benzoate however I just want to know if she can have a few stems in conjunction with the sodium benzoate , I searched that thyme is also effective against megabacteria in the form of a thyme tea however I dont think that lady maybe able to make it everyday.
What I wanted to know is that I have brought her a live thyme plant since the other thyme in supermarket had expiry date and I couldn't find one that lasted 3 weeks, is if I can give her some of the stems of the fresh plant while she is here with me continuing on sodium benzoate so she is used to eating it once I finish her sodium benzoate and is with the lady.Since the plant seems effective it may help her even if she finishes her sodium benzoate treatment early.
