Feline distemper, also known as panleukopenia, is a serious disease for cats. Rarely is veterinary treatment successful. However, with a natural cat health care system in place, you can prevent it. If the disease is not too far advanced, there is also a strong likelihood of curing it.
Feline distemper, or panleukopenia, is a common virus. There are assorted symptoms, not unlike those of other diseases. They range from fever, a lack of appetite, vomiting, diarrhoea, the associated dehydration and ultimately to seizures.
Young cats are more vulnerable to this condition than older cats, as their immune system is still growing.
There is little successful veterinary treatment. Rehydration is offered as are antibiotics to treat the secondary infection. Blood transfusions are also sometimes suggested. This is why vets suggest vaccines to prevent it.
While vaccines do appear to prevent virus’, what they actually do is to encourage the mutation of the virus into a more virulent strain. This is seen as a completely new disease, failing to make any connection with the original disease.
Vaccines are considered by most to boost the immune system. However, this is incorrect. Vaccines lower the immune system, making the cat more likely to contract other diseases.
Because panleukopenia is such a common virus, the practicality of eliminating it, whether or not this is desirable, is zero. By far the best supportive measures in preventing your cat from getting it is to raise the immune system. Wild cats have little problem with this common virus, and that should tell us much about what to do.
Probably the most important, single thing you can do to raise your cat’s immunity is to feed a quality, natural diet. By virtue of its daily consumption, this has the most impact.
The next important thing to do is to use natural therapies, such as homeopathy, to treat all your cat’s ailments. Homeopathic treatment is by the use of energy rather than chemicals. Chemicals are used to suppress the symptoms, to subjugate your cat’s immune system. They are all liver toxic. Energy lightens up your cat’s body, freeing her from toxins and ailments.
By using a complete natural cat health care system, you can be sure of a healthy, trouble free life for your cat, which is easy on your wallet.
