Kidney disease in cats is becoming increasingly common. This is in spite of all the special diets and the comprehensive veterinary treatments. Yet it wasn’t always this way. Something, somewhere along the line, has gone horribly wrong. But hope is just around the corner, with a system of natural cat health care.
Let’s look at what kidney disease in cats is all about. It covers all the areas of the renal system, from kidney disorders to urethral disorders and everything in between. The veterinary terms include:
- nephritis, pyelonephritis
- kidney stones
- paralysis of the bladder
Many of these conditions are inflammatory conditions. The focus of the symptoms is around urine, whether it is difficulty passing urine, unhealthy appearance, copious urine, scanty urine or pain passing urine.
There can be a variety of causes of kidney disease in cats. Some of them include:
- ingestion of a poisonous substance
- previous or current veterinary medications
- ill health
The veterinary diagnosis of kidney disease in cats is through a blood test, urinalysis, a urine test, ultrasound, X-ray or a biopsy. Some of these tests are very invasive, so should be reserved for when they are essential, rather than routine done.
The veterinary treatment of this problem is with a variety of medications. Unfortunately all veterinary medications are liver toxic and immune suppressive. They do not treat the underlying cause. Instead, they are a suppressive band aid. Your cat may well appear to recover from the disease, but either this will return after stopping the medication, or worse things will follow.
This is the nature of health. By suppressing the natural expression of the body, it drives the problem inside, making it worse. Sooner or later, the body will again respond, but this time with a more serious problem.
The alternative is to look at the cause of each problem. If the cause of the problem is from the ingestion of a poisonous substance, dehydration or some other obvious cause, then the prompt treatment can be totally curative. However, if there is any delay in the treatment and the cat has an under-active immune system, they may not be able to recover.
If the cause is the diet, which is the most common cause and explains why it is now so prevalent, the obvious treatment is to change the diet. But don’t do a sideways move to another brand. Instead, consider a quality, natural diet more in keeping with how your cat evolved.
The wrong diet is the major cause of inflammation.
If the cause of the problem is from past or current veterinary medication, as it can be so often, then the best way to undo this damage is to use homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy doesn’t just treat the normal health issues of a cat, it can also undo the damage of past medications.
People often turn to homeopathy as a last ditch effort. However, if you use it as your first choice of health care for your cat, then you can save yourself a lot of heartache and many $$, not to mention the trouble you save your cat.
Using natural cat health care for all health problems, including kidney disease in cats, can make a world of different to how happy and healthy your cat is.
