Home Remedies for a Sick Cat
I started using home remedies for a sick cat over seven years ago. My cat was vomiting, had diarrhea and couldn't hold her food down. I realized I had to do something, so I started to study and research natural home remedies for cats. Our cats are getting sicker more than ever before. Fifty years ago, you didn't hear about all the diseases that our modern day cats are getting. It's due to the commercial pet food, antibiotics, over vaccinations and chemical flea products.
You will also realize how to treat your cat with natural home remedies. Most of the commercial cat food is filled with fillers. Corn gluten meal, corn grits, wheat, soy, artificial flavoring and coloring, BHT, BHA, diseased, and dead animals. Some of these pet foods include our own pet dogs and cats that have been euthanized. The pet food companies use very little protein, if any. Cats are carnivores and require good quality animal based protein. 80% of their diet should be meat.
Home-made cat food is the best, but vitamins, minerals and taurine must be balanced out. Fortunately, there are a few good pet food companies that make all natural cat food. Wellness, Nature's Variety, Taste of the Wild and Wilderness by Blue Buffalo just to name a few. Most of these pet foods are grain free and cats do not need grains because they cause allergies, obesity among other illnesses.
Canned food should be their main diet, but some kibble won't hurt. Read the ingredients the next time you buy cat food and if it has anything listed above, don't buy it. The grocery store brands are the worst food for your cat. Cook a chicken or turkey and cut it up for them. They love it, and it has lots of protein, vitamins and minerals needed for them to survive.
When you start using home remedies for a sick cat, you will notice a big difference in how your cat's coat looks and feels. He will have more energy and sickness will diminish. Veterinarians are over-using vaccinations. Cats only need three vaccines (the 4-way distemper, killed virus) over their lifetime. Rabies is a law, but it's not as strict as with dogs.
Antibiotics are causing many side effects. It's long term so when we have a cat with kidney disease or liver failure, we don't know what it is. Cats as young as five years are getting kidney disease. There is an alternative antibiotic, which is Colloidal Silver. Nux Vomica is great for vomiting and Slippery Elm works for diarrhea, constipation and heals the intestinal tract. Cedar Oil is an all natural alternative to treat your cat with fleas. Borax works wonders on your carpet and furniture to kill fleas. By using home remedies for a sick cat, you will notice a difference in how your cat feels and looks.
