I have spent many a night dealing with a very common cat emergency- urinary tract obstruction.
This is most often caused by diet, and for the most part is preventable- it helps to have my Course to know how to prevent it and what to do if it happens to you.
Dude the Cat
Dude the cat needed anesthetic to be unblocked with a urinary catheter, and he was placed on IV Fluids.
There were early warning signs, and Course owners would likely be aware of these.
In fact there are things that you could do to prevent this from becoming an emergency.
AND this happens to dogs to..so dog owners take note…
URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
Your pet cries or strains when urinating. You see blood inyour pet’s urine. She is urinating more frequently. She may be urinati ng throughout the house. Your male dog has a visible discharge from his penis sheath.
Many urinary tract infections are caused by bacteria which have spread from the urethra. Some are due to bladder stones secondary to diet. Others are a primary inflammation of the lining of the bladder wall.
SEE YOUR VETERINARIAN. If your cat is straining to urinate and not producing any urine, it is imperative to have him examined
He may be blocked with a bladder stone in which case
he would need emergency care. It is a good idea to have urine checked for any urinary tract problems; you are then able to use the appropriate remedy knowing what the specific problem is.
HERBAL RELIEF. Specific herbs are helpful in dissolving bladder stones and acidifying the urine. These are Hydrangea, Stone Root, Gravel Root and Corn Silk
VITAMIN C. This acidifies the urine and may prevent the recurrence of bladder stones and bladder infections.
CRANBERRY. A traditional home remedy used for people with recurrent urinary tract infections. The beneficial effects are from the acidification of the
urine and by making it more difficult for the bacteria to adhere to the bladder wall.
STRUVITE STONES. In most cases of bladder stones and bladder infections the goal is to acidify the urine; this prevents the recurrence of the most common bladder stone, struvite. Diets higher in protein are more acidifying; specific veterinary diets are designed for acidification. A higher protein
homemade diet is also suitable. Use all the prior remedies to accomplish acidification.
FLUID. In all cases of infections or stones, additional fluid intake is mandatory in treatment and preventing recurrence. For cats, I suggest feeding only canned food. For dogs, add water to their dried food.
HOMEOPATHIC. A homeopathic medication called Cantharis can provide some symptomatic
pain relief from urinary tract infections.
CHINESE HELP. We have a used a Chinese herb in our practice for dogs with recurrent
urinary tract infections. Ba Zheng San is the most effective. This is a mix of
herbs which are both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
P.S. If you are on the fence about getting some of my critical information, jump over to the other side with confidence that you will be completely satisfied or you receive all of your funds back.
P.P.S. The owners of the cat who was blocked did get my Course..they want to do whatever they can so this never happen again.
