When searching for a natural antibiotic for cats, it’s worth investigating this topic in greater depth. People have become accustomed to the idea of antibiotics for just about every ailment, whether it is of bacterial origin or not. This is because the veterinary (and medical) systems have little else to offer, so they use them indiscriminately.
If you suspect that your cat has an infection, before considering an antibiotic, it’s best to consider the cause. For example, if your cat has received an injury, either from a bite or from a more general cause, and the area is obviously causing some distress and is perhaps swelling, then a bacterial infection is likely.
If, however, your cat recently developed a discharge from the mouth or nose, then this is likely to be a viral infection, which is not addressed with an antibiotic. (Vets will still give you an antibiotic for what they term ‘secondary infections’. What about the primary infection? But they have nothing to offer for that.)
So you need to know what sort of infection it is.
But digging deeper, you also need to know what the cause is. In the above examples, one was an injury, the other a disorder from a contagious disease. So they need different approaches.
It’s also worth considering the health of your cat’s immune system. If your cat has a strong and vibrant immunity, then they will be able to deal with an injury very effectively on their own. It may take time, depending on the severity, but deal with it, they can.
A cat who picks up contagious diseases easily is likely to have a very low immune response. So as well as looking for a natural antibiotic for cats, consider the ways to raise your cats immune system.
In homeopathic treatment, the immune system is of key importance. This takes precedence over everything else. By selecting the right treatment for the problem as well as for the patient, the immune system is restored so that natural healing can take place.
The results can be very fast, very gentle, with no adverse side effects, with no suppression, with no interference with the important bacteria.
However, it is best to consult with a professional homeopath if you are new to this wonderful, all embracing, natural health modality. It is far too complicated for many people to get their heads around and does require a radical change in the way you think.
Your job is to ensure you feed your cat the most appropriate diet for the species, so that their immune system is kept in tip top condition. Then you won’t have much of a need for a natural antibiotic for cats or for any treatment at all, as problems will seem to bounce off them.
Keeping your cat healthy has never been so easy – with the winning combination of a quality species-specific diet and homeopathy.
