There are viable options to feline illnesses, such as upper respiratory diseases. Cats can suffer with sneezing, coughing, fevers, eye and nasal discharges and other cold- or flu-like symptoms, just as humans do. Upper respiratory disease in cats happens as often as with people.
Firstly, it’s important to know that these are not transmitted to humans. It may not be your idea of fun to be sprayed with nasal mucus from your cat’s sneeze, but it won’t do you any harm.
Secondly, these are viruses, so antibiotics are not only not effective, they run the risk of undermining your cat’s immune system. They are often prescribed by vets, as there is little they have for viruses. The excuse is that it prevents a secondary, usually bacterial, infection. However, this is not as significant as the primary, the viral, infection.
If your cat is healthy, these symptoms will not last long. Every single living being has an inbuilt healing mechanism, which prevents and cures all disease. Problems only arise when this is compromised.
So your primary duty, as your cat’s chief health carer, should be focused on keeping this healing mechanism, or the immune system as it is more commonly called, in tip top working order.
There are many ways to achieve this. The most important ones are:
1.Make sure the diet is a high quality and natural diet as close to your cat’s evolutionary diet as is practical for you to manage.
2.Use natural medicine as opposed to medical drugs. Not only do medical drugs damage the immune system, they inhibit the uptake of nutrition, making a bad situation worse. Natural medicine works by stimulating the immune response, or by clearing the ‘blockages’ away that prevent it from working as it was designed to.
3.Ensure your cat has as much freedom as is safe. Cats love to get outside and chase shadows, relax in the sun, play with snow flakes. It can make all the difference between a contented cat, and so a healthy one, and a depressed cat, waiting for disease to strike.
4.Ensure your own health is as good as your cats’! Follow a healthy diet and natural medicine practice. If you are unhappy or unhealthy, your cat will tend to help you shoulder the burden. If you want a healthy cat, make sure you are healthy.
Nothing can beat a healthy diet. And nothing can beat homeopathy as one of the best medical disciplines there are. Upper respiratory disease in cats can easily be treated with homeopathy, and prevented with diet.
