Reactions with other medication

My cat has arthritis and DJD and is currently prescribed Onsior, is this product safe to be used in conjunction with the Onsior?
Probably is the short answer, but combining herbal and licensed pharmaceutical products cannot always be regarded as perfectly safe. Opinions vary as to how much of an anti-inflammatory effect Devil's Claw can provide. Generally it is not safe to mix products with this sort of effect together. However Devil's Claw is often used with the so called NSAID products like Onsior and as far as I am aware, it is normally safe. You could try it but give the Devil's Claw in a low dose to start off with and gradually build it up. If your cat shows any signs of vomiting or diarrhoea, then it would be best to stop both medications and see your vet. This always applies with Onsior anyway, even on its own. (Usually it is very safe, but occasionally not.)
I am looking st this product for my 15 year old cat who is now very stiff. What is the recommended dosage and frequency and, in your experience, do cats tolerate this when mixed with a treat or is it best syringed into mouth? (My cat only eats dried food now, doesn't tolerate 'wet' cat food.)
The recommended dosage for a cat (& small dogs) is as follows:
Dosage (by dogs/cats weight):
Less than 7.5kg :1/2 teaspoon (2.5ml) once per day
This product can be administered either way, but the easiest for you (and your cat) may be to try and disguise it in a soft treat or some pate/tuna etc. If this fails, you can try and syringe it manually into your cats mouth if he/she will tolerate this.
If you don't manage to administer this product with ease, there are palatable tablet versions which are worth trying as an alternative.
How to feed?

Does this liquid have to be mixed with food or can it be syringed into mouth?
It can be given directly into the mouth but should be given just before or after food, so that there is food in the stomach at the same time.
