Holistic veterinarians always use a system of natural cat health to provide resolutions to any health problem. However, the impact is probably the most profound when the cat arrives with a serious degenerative disease like feline leukaemia.
Feline leukaemia is actually a virus which attacks the white blood cells. Healthy cats are easily immune to it, but unhealthy cats can easily die from it. It is easily transmitted from unhealthy cat to unhealthy cat. Unhealthy queens can infect their kittens.
The symptoms are often long in establishing themselves and they can be similar symptoms to many other diseases. They can vary quite widely but the main symptoms are appetite loss, anaemia, chronic diarrhoea and perhaps serious eye problems. Seizures can occur at the later stage.
As with any serious health disorder, your cat can succumb to a proliferation of parasites and bacteria. So antibiotics and intestinal worm treatments are normally prescribed by your vet. However, these are not the cause of the problem. They are merely opportunistic. Using any medication is always liver toxic and lowers the immune system. This is not in your cat’s best interest at any time, least of all with a serious problem.
The veterinary diagnosis of feline leukaemia is by blood tests, but this is not always definitive, so repeated blood tests are often needed.
There is no veterinary treatment for feline leukaemia. They normally test for it then suggest euthanasia.
Hoverer, many holistic veterinarians and natural health practitioners have been able to cure this degenerative disease. This may not be an area that you should treat yourself as it is a serious problem and will need close monitoring by someone who is experienced.
However, one of the main causes of ill health in cats is the commercial cat food. This creates, by default, an unhealthy cat. It is better to start to feed your cat a quality, natural diet from now on. I have read of holistic veterinarians who have turned cats around in 20 days, just by changing their diet.
The next thing that is well worth your consideration is the use of natural therapies, such as homeopathy, for all your cat’s health needs. Both homeopathy and a quality, natural diet promote health by boosting the immune system. Using a total system of natural cat health can improve the quality of your cat’s life, extend her life span and it is the most economical way to keep a cat.
