Animals rarely show pain vocally. They normally show pain by licking the painful part, crouching, rather than resting comfortably and retreating to a quiet place.
There are several reasons why cat cystitis is common.
Firstly, cats are loan hunters, so have evolved to live by their wits. Their hunts must be successful, as there is no support structure to fall back on. Living in a state of alert calls on the extensive use of adrenalin. Adrenalin is manufactured in the adrenal glands which are situated just above the kidneys. Energetically the adrenal glands and the kidneys are the same.
So the kidneys are the weak organ in cats and can be easily overloaded, with a knock on effect on the whole urinary tract system.
If you are feeding your cat a processed cat food, then this is the likely cause of the cystitis. Processed cat food is very harmful to the health of your cat for several reasons. The majority of commercial cat food
- starts off with low grade meat, more likely meat by-products, from dubious sources (road kill and rendering plants)
- is packed out with cheap filler (such as melamine or carbohydrates)
- is cooked for long periods, destroying what little nutrients were present
- is topped up with indigestible synthetic minerals and vitamins
- contains chemicals to preserve, to colour, to improve the taste
Once cats are put on a quality natural diet, their healthy returns (normally after a short initial de-tox period). Often the cystitis needs no further treatment.
However, as cystitis can be quite serious, as well as painful, while you are making the dietary changeover, it is a good idea to support your cat.
Homeopathy works by stimulating the immune system to work as it should. Professional homeopathic is your best approach in the successful and total cure of this serious acute problem.
But if you don’t move away from the processed diet, it will return.
You can learn how to provide a quality, natural diet as well as how to use some of the common homeopathic medicines.
