I'm careful not to give them too much but I've been told by my vet that it will not harm them. Let them enjoy from time to time. It also has no affect on my dog at all.

I read somewhere that if cats have too much catnip, they will get high. But I haven't had any exp. w/ cats myself, so I'm not entirely sure.

I have never heard of any dangers with the use of catnip. I choose not to give this to my cat, simply because she is already wound tight and I'm afraid she might hurt herself. She isn't missing out cause she has plenty to keep her happily purring.
