Feline Treatment at Home – Natural / Holistic and Conventional Cat Treatment Options

 

Feline treatment with more natural, holistic methods at home is growing in appeal, much like the heightened interest in providing for our own health issues in a more whole-body, non-drug manner.

Through the past decades, most cats have managed to sustain good health with fairly minimal maintenance, even as they advanced through their senior years. But alarms have been raised  in the past several years of noticeable  increases in instances of more serious and more unusual illnesses  for well-nurtured domestic cats.

With such troublesome news,  and perhaps augmented with personal experience,  many cat guardians are  alert and educating themselves now to adopt some of the more natural, holistic means to provide sound and safe health regimens and holistic feline treatments for their cat residents.

Homes Clipart 9 While serious cat illnesses and diseases are best treated with veterinary supervision, many feline ailments and conditions can and are being treated successfully and safely with home remedies and natural cat care treatments at home.  Both comfort to the cats and savings on ever-escalating vet bills are benefits, along with avoiding some of the more toxic ramifications that seem more and more prevalent.

Natural feline treatment includes holistic methods such as proper nutrition, good cat vitamins and  cat supplements, natural food recipes, color and crystal therapies, use of certain oils and herbs, homeopathic tinctures, different types of body manipulation techniques and an overall view of environment and living conditions. All of these non-drug cat treatment options have been reported to be effective in varying degrees in restoring cats to health from certain illnesses. Natural feline treatment remedies are so valued, since they work not only for the specific cat health problem, but  they can also foster improvement for other overall health aspects. Most holistic forms of feline treatment seek to heal the entire entity, along with the underlying causes, not just specific conditions.

Please note again, that treatment of serious cat illnesses is not recommended without veterinary supervision. And while it may be difficult to find veterinarians that practice or incorporate any natural or  holistic treatments in their practice, it is highly recommended to consult with your trusted Serious feline illnesses call for treatment at your vet. Don't guess - your sweet cat depends on your action for its very life.pet’s doctor about any harm that might be done through use of any of the holistic treatments or substances you may wish to utilize at home based on your research.  Sometimes, certain  conventional drugs or therapies may conflict seriously with seemingly benign and simple home-type remedies.  Many seemingly ‘safe’  treatments  from our home medicine cabinets,  that we may use for our own afflications, may be highly toxic and even lethal for our feline friends and other pets. Even some of our own food can be toxic and even lethal for our cats, dogs and other domestic pets.

 There are many benefits derived from using “Mother Nature’s’ provisions to aid and heal our own health as well as our special furry companions, but all should be done with caution, due care and informed diligence.  Fortunately, there is more and more information and research being provided, but we must take care to assure we have reliable sources and understanding with proper follow up with professional medical guidance as needed.

Natural feline treatment practices compliment traditional medical practices for your cat.

Natural remedies are often prized as adjuncts to modern, traditional medical treatments.  At other times, holistic remedies are preferred over conventional.  Some non-drug complementary treatments such as massage, acupressure, Bach Flower Remedies,  Reiki,  faith-healing, prayer, crystal and color therapy are usually safe when conscientiously administered.

  Unless you know what you are using and have researched thoroughly the proper application of any natural  cat health remedies and any possible consequences, do not proceed to treat your cat!  Improper use of any substance, commercial or natural, can kill your feline friend! Again, consultation with your trusted pet’s health practitioner is advised.  “Natural” is not always necessarily safe.

 This resource strives to share sound information based upon diligent research, personal experience over the years here in our private sanctuary as well as from other trusted sources.  The source of information may not always be remembered or available, as is often the case with knowledge or experience gained over time.  But there will never, knowingly, be any ‘gossip’ or ‘fad’ or outright misinformation provided, but rather a sharing of what we have learned or used with success in our own circumstances.  We aim to cover the old, the new and potential, both traditional and holistic.

You must still perform your own due diligence and determine what is right for your own circumstances and for your precious home companions.  We need to be mindful of the treatments and medications we receive via our own traditional treatments.  Respecting the potency yet potential harmful effects of some ‘natural’ remedies is of no less import.

 Please be wary and do not take as’ gospel’ what you may find on many forums and sites.  There are  many wrong and outright harmful ‘recommendations’ made and ‘home remedies’ touted in countless public forums.

  Simply, never assume that anything that you can safely use to treat yourself is equally safe to use for your cats or other domestic animals. There are differences in metabolic processes and abilities of systems to process a variety of substances  that may seem safe …including many types of food stuffs for that matter.  Arming ourselves with good resources of information will go far in helping us make wise decisions that can help us treat many afflictions our pets may encounter and help us to provide comfort, relief and healing at home…where we all prefer to recover.

And PLEASE..PLEASE…REMEMBER…!

       NEVER SEEK EMERGENCY HELP ONLINE

                              for ANIMALS IN DISTRESS!


                       DO NOT DELAY!

HOURGLass    Seek IMMEDIATE LOCAL HELP

        From Your Medical Practitioners!

 

 


      ANY SIGNS of DISTRESS, PAIN or ILLNESS

        should be given IMMEDIATE ATTENTION

         by your trusted Vet or Emergency Facility.

 

Seek immediate feline treatment for signs of illness, distress or pain.

            

     

        MINUTES CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

 

There may well be some holistic remedies that can be used to treat your cat’s problem(s), but get the necessary professional treatment first and the diagnosis. Then move on to find feline treatment options that may complement traditional cat care and means of recovery for this diagnosis.

Any unusual behavior that appears suddenly or that you realize has been repeated …Any symptoms of  pain, distress or anything out of character for your special cat  or other animals should be attended by your trusted Veterinarian or an Emergency Facility if your vet isn’t available.

 

Learning Modes of Feline Treatment Together  – Sharing the Wisdom

Your own experiences of what has worked, what has not, what you have found important to avoid or wise to pursue …your special input is valued and invited here. Please share your tested strategies, your personal efforts, your triumphs and your defeats

As like-minded community, we can do much to share and help one another, provide support, wise counsel and sound information, while slaying misinformation that is so prevalent out there, hard-dying myths, outdated ideas, practices, routines and attitudes, and hopefully, together, we can help others make sound, good decisions for their cats and other domestic companions.

 

Prevention is the Best Feline Treatment

Prevention is always superior to a cure, for our cats, dogs and pets as well as for ourselves.  Some sound and simple preventive feline treatment routines include:

  • practice simple, good hygiene
  • feed a proper, by-product and additive free diet of high quality protein balanced with other nutrients essential specifically to felines
  • don’t overfeed
  • observe and know your cat and its normal state of being and habits
  • provide proper medical attention when warranted…don’t take chances!

‘If you don’t know –Go!’ (to the vet)

Feline Treatment includes healthy dollops of love and TLC!

TLC and affection – special types of feline treatment – add to the perfect ‘recipe’ for good health and a happy life for you and your furry cuddle.





    Add to this recipe, lots of love and TLC for your feline friend, and you couldn’t ask for or order any better feline treatment or  care to take you and your beloved cat into your senior years together. Two shared lifetimes, filled with love, amusement and that special bond that all loving hearts well understand.  

 

Proper  Care and Feline Treatment Applications  for your cat can provide  you both continued love, joy and amusement for years to come!

Spread Holiday Cheer with Your Cats – Ideas for Holiday Happiness For Cats and People

 

 

  Share Love of Your Pet with Others - Spread Holiday Cheer!Love Shared Both Ways

During holiday seasons, many look for ways to give back beyond the everyday.  To share their Holiday Spirit.     Anyone who shares a home  with cats, dogs or other pets has a built-in advantage to spreading love around your    home, family     and community.  You can enjoy a number of ways to spread holiday cheer to people and to cats and pets. We enjoy kisses and cuddles from our little furry family members year round, while we provide special care and a loving home in so many ways to give back to them.  During the holidays, you and your cats and other pets can reach out to others in different ways to spread cheer, love and smiles to those who may go without, while others celebrate their joys and gratitude for many blessings.

 

How to Spread Holiday Cheer to  Others –  People and Cats (Pets)

Adopt or Foster a Homeless Cat or Other Pet

My first thought is to encourage responsible friends and family to adopt a cat or dog or other Save a life - Adopt a cat, dog or other pet from a rescue sanctuary. Prepare a special room for your new love to get acquainted - especially if you take them home over holidays!  homeless animal from a shelter.  Check to see if the shelter or sanctuary has any ‘urgent need’  furballs you or  your friends and family can adopt

Many shelters have KILL policies…and saving a desperate cat, dog or other pet from their last breath in a sterile institution, never to know love, cuddles  and security, is a loving act that can reward you for a lifetime.  Call your local shelters and ask about those needing homes immediately and rescue them into loving arms.

If you cannot adopt them, then perhaps your can foster them until a home can be found for life.  Or if there is a way to donate to the shelter to keep them off the Kill List…that may be a solution. Of course , anyone who adopts or foster must be able to handle the responsibility with time, finances and healthy, loving  shelter and food and resources — but then you wouldn’t likely be reading here if you weren’t prepared. I must add that, holidays are NOT the best time to bring new pets home.  The hustle and bustle and chaos can be very frightening and disruptive for a precious pet that has no way of understanding what is going on in their new, strange environment. The smells, sounds and shadows and routines may create more problems down the line for your little furball, that is trying to adjust to totally new ‘everything’…including people s(he) does not know to be trustworthy.

 

Give your cats and pets, new or veterans, secluded space away from the holiday din.If you have an out of the way room where you can put comfortable bedding, dishes, litter boxes and small toys where you new pet or foster pet can ‘chill out’, then by all means…My vote is to take them home and make them as comfortable as possible as soon as possible!  Even during the holidays. Without such a sequestered  ‘safe zone’,  a  new cat or other pet pet can become disoriented, get out a window or door, or get under foot, even act out– like it normally would not– with so much activity and potentially so many people around for the holidays.

 

You will likely need to set  up a separate space for your new pet for several days or weeks any way so that it can get used to everyone and adjust over time to everything…so keeping it confined away from all the din of domestic holiday bliss is safer for your new cats or other pets as well as for everyone else.  The last thing anyone wants is to trip and fall over a frantic new pet causing injury or worse to both species ….or have to go out searching the neighborhood for your newest family member, who slipped out the door as guests were coming and going.  What a trauma!

 Take in a Cat, Dog or Other Pet of an On-Duty Member  of our Service Corps

Board the cat or dog of an active duty service member while they are away.   Another wonderful idea is to exchange love with others of both species by taking in a dog or    cat   –  or supporting a boarding accommodation –  for a member of our troops while they are    away    serving us and our country!  See the “RELATED ARTICLE” below.

By Dr. Becker (Mercola.com) – The following suggestions from PetMD are a phenomenal way for you and your pet to do good deeds (and have fun doing them).

How to Give Back… With Your Pet

 

  • Donate Your Dog or Cat’s Blood

Just as donated blood can save human lives, it can save animal lives too, in cases such as injury, anemia, and much more. Animal blood banks may take blood donations directly, or you might be able to help by fostering a rescued pet that’s acting as a donor until he is adopted into his forever home. The Association of Veterinary Hematology and Transfusion Medicine has a list of veterinary blood banks.

  • Pet Craft Night

Do you enjoy crafting? Have a pet crafting party with your friends and create hand-crafted pet toys, beds, and blankets. You can then donate the items to a local shelter.

  •  Volunteer as a Pet Therapy Team

Both dogs and cats can act as therapy animals in hospitals, nursing homes, and other rehabilitation centers. Pet Partners (formerly the Delta Society) can screen you and your pet to see if you’d make a good therapy-animal team.1  For MORE IDEAS, …READ MORE HERE!
