<< I used saw palmetto on my 12 year old Taz for prostate enlargement. It
worked great. Taz weighed about 2 pounds. I mixed one 80mg capsule of the
powder to 20ml water and gave him .35cc's 3-4 times a day.

Just an addendum to this - Taz was also getting Lupron shots on a regular
basis. He did have some UTI's later on, but the saw palmetto did seem to
help control the prostatic enlargement a bit.
