Silvervine sticks are an amazing natural dental hygiene.
Silvervine is a climbing plant, that grows in the mountainous regions of Korea, China and Japan. The plant bears fruit that resembles kiwi, (Gall Fruit) but it’s the silver white leaves and flowers is how it gets its name “silvervine”. They're a natural stem of the plant, some people call them 'molar sticks'.
Catnip (Nepeta cataria) part of the mint family also reducing stress & assists them to fight off sickness.
The reactions vary from cat to cat. Some become mellow and calm and others become excited and playful, some could become quite aggressive. Catnip is smelt &/or eaten. Funny Fact, when it is eaten, it has the opposite effect & cats seem to relax. Some people even use catnip tea as an herbal remedy for themselves.
We know very few of us brush our meow'ing Fur Kids teeth so don't feel as bad when you're giving them our Nip Sticks we stock them in lots of shapes & sizes.
These treats are a double bonus keeping their gums and teeth healthy, as well as looking after their physical and emotional well-being.
Warning silvervine sticks side affects include but not limited to:
- Rolling around.
- Staring into space.
- Generally acting more playful

How long will they be affect last?
Don’t worry your meow'ing Fur Kid won't experience a long-lasting “high”. The effects of silvervine wear off in about 30 minutes.
How often should I give Silvervine treats?
We recommend giving silvervine treats for 30 minutes, 2-3 times a week, this keeps them craving more and not letting them get bored of it. (But then again, we have so many styles change it up each time) keep them on their paws or back if they are like Milly who rolls around throwing it in the air.
Do I need to peel the bark off?
Yes, the silvervine is safe for cats and their oral health. You can peel off the bark to make it more attractive to your cat. But even if you don't, it doesn't matter. The bark does not affect anything.
Is silvervine the same as catnip?
Despite both catnip and silver vine invoking the same strange reactions in cats, they're not closely related, but both have evolved to produce similar (but not identical) iridoids – a type of monoterpenoid: naturally occurring chemical compounds responsible for aromas and flavours.
