Homeopathy is an increasingly popular natural therapy for both humans and animals. This is so because of several reasons, among which we can highlight its effectiveness and excellent safety conditions, since homeopathy doesn't cause any adverse or side effects.
In this AnimalWised article we'll delve into the world of homeopathy for cats. Find out now how you can help your pet in a more natural and harmless way.
What is homeopathy and how can it help my cat?
Homeopathy is a natural therapy that uses remedies extracted from various strains, of which the most common are animal, mineral and vegetable strains. Following particular procedures, these substances are diluted until a homeopathic remedy is eventually obtained. Homeopathic products are a very low-concentration remedy, making it an extraordinarily safe choice.
We'll use the example of feline urine infections so that you understand how homeopathy can work on your cat. Some of these urinary infections are considered to be idiopathic, which means there is no known cause. However, we do know that during and after suffering these infections cats suffer a prolonged period of stress.
In this case, homeopathic treatment would act on the cat's state of stress. By correcting the cat's main imbalance, its urine would return to normal, because this area was suffering the physical consequences of the stress.
Homeopathic remedies for cats
Here we'll list some homeopathic remedies that could be very useful to your cat. Remember that the solution should be properly diluted before given to an animal, and it should be taken separately from any food.
It's also important for you to remember that the best person to suggest you such a treatment is a homeopathic vet, since they'll be able to treat your cat individually and establish the correct dosage. Some common homeopathic solutions include:
- Arnica Montana: Standard remedy for any painful fall, trauma, bite or injury.
- Calendula: Highly recommended for wounds, preventing them from getting infected and allowing them to heal properly.
- Nux Vomica: Taken when a hairball has been ingested and there is subsequent difficulty in ejecting it.
- Arsenicum Album: Used for cats suffering from anxiety, which manifests as aimless walking at night.
- Belladonna or Calcarea Carbonica: Used on cats with anxiety, if manifested as a desire to bite.
- Natrium Muriaticum: Used on depressed cats, especially if related to the death of a human or animal member of the household.
We can't finish this article without reminding you that you should go to a veterinarian when the problem is serious, and that it is they who will provide guidelines for specific homeopathic treatment. This is because only homeopathic vets are able to find an answer to the health problem which might compromise your cat's balance and quality of life.
