Liver disease in cats has become so common in recent decades, it’s easy to point the finger to the cause. This means it is easy to find the right solution. Unless you have left it too late and the cat is past recovery. But at least you will know what not to do if you have another cat.
Blaise was brought to me a couple of months ago. She is an oriental looking (and sounding!) cat, but came from a rescue centre. She is about 16 years old. Recently, she became quite ill and was taken to a vet, where she remained for several days while tests were performed.
The vet diagnosed liver failure and recommended euthanasia. Her person decided this was not an option before he had looked at other areas. He brought her to see me. She was in a very sorry state, lying lifeless in his arms, with very little reaction.
However, she still had a reasonable appetite. So there was hope.
The first thing I did was to get him to change her diet. He was willing and eager to do so, just didn’t know how to go about it.
The second thing I did was to put her on a homeopathic liver support remedy.
Within three days she was up, walking about, eating quite well and wanting to go outside. She was willing to take the remedy. However, she resisted the vet med she was still on, with claws unleashed.
All veterinary medication gives the liver a hard time, so the vet knew that Blaise’s liver would not tolerate any more medication than she was already on. All the medication does is to keep the symptoms at bay, giving us the misconception that the animal is improving.
In reality, they are destroying the immune system, by suppressing the symptoms.
Blaise’s medical history included annual vaccination, kidney meds, sterilisation and a bout of flu early in life. She was also on asthma medication, including cortisone.
Her diet consisted of the usual dried food, with occasional canned food.
All the medication, plus the chemical cocktail found in commercial cat food causes untold (and unrecognised by vets) damage to animals and the first things to give out are the internal organs, mainly the liver and kidneys. Exactly what Blaise was suffering with.
By changing her diet to a quality, natural one, by changing the homeopathic treatment as her symptoms change, she is improving by leaps and bounds. She is now the active cat she was just a few months ago. She has returned to her typical, oriental, demanding nature. Her energy and her appetite are good.
She is now off all her veterinary medication (I think the vet gave up!). Her asthma has returned, just exactly as we want it to. (A return of an old symptom, for a short period, while the energy is good, is an excellent sign of a return to health.)
She still has some way to go, but she is obviously on the road to recovery. Her person keeps in regular contact with her progress, so a change of remedy can occur as soon as needed.
I really feel for all the animals who are killed (let’s call a spade a spade) needlessly, when homeopathic treatment coupled with a species-specific diet is all that is needed. I also really feel for the children who suffer their loss so badly.
Liver disease in cats, kidney disease in cats, auto-immune disease in cats, any disease in cats can all be reversed this way. All you need is to consult with a homeopath. You don’t have to have a consultation in person. A distance consultation with someone who knows what they are doing is all you need.
Be aware that someone who advertises themselves as holistic, may not be. It’s a marketing gimmick. Ring up and ask questions about diet, vaccination and general treatment beforehand, and you will soon discover if they are genuine or not.
