This is especially true when traditional medicine can’t help.
Suddenly, an alternative path looks pretty inviting.
The best way to use holistic medicine is with the guidance of a holistic vet or animal naturopath.
These professionals can help you design a treatment plan that uses a range of natural treatments to help your precious cat.
But while you wait for your appointment, of course the lure of the internet is irresistible.
And this is where things can get a little weird – and also potentially dangerous…
Google “holistic medicine,” and you’ll be amazed.
There are several million hits.
There are many, many treatment options out there – for human and cat diseases.
And many products openly claim they can do miracles.
Browsing site after site, it’s nearly impossible to decide what to do.
Should you try everything you find – or nothing?
How do you choose the right product for your sick fur baby?
If you’re considering trying holistic medicine, it’s a great idea to start by setting a few golden ground rules.
They can help make sure you make things better, not worse.
Talk these through with your animal naturopath, to be sure the treatments you choose will only benefit your cat.
OK, I’ll admit it.
I’ve shelled out good money to order “miracle products” that promised to cure cat diseases practically overnight.
It was only when I was ripping into the packaging like a kid at Christmas that I suddenly thought to read the fine print.
Turns out, the fine print can be very worrying.
It often describes potential side-effects that can be downright terrifying – from organ damage, to internal bleeding!
The goal here is to maintain and improve the health of your fur baby – not compromise it further.
If you’re heading down into holistic medicine territory, get ready to meet a few goblins and fairies on the way.
At the very least, you’ll hear some whispers of auras, energy and chakra balancing.
But here’s the thing.
If mainstream medicine can’t help your cat, it’s time to make a Plan B.
By keeping an open mind, your Plan B can include holistic medicine you may not have considered.
With most kinds of cat diseases, the worst thing you can do is nothing.
So if you want to use holistic medicine, choose a treatment that creates tangible results, has no side effects, and that seems the best fit for your cat.
And go start it now.
No kind of holistic medicine (or traditional medicine for that matter!) will fix cat diseases instantly.
You have to use them every day, usually for months.
It’s not always convenient.
It takes up your precious time.
But persisting with a worthwhile treatment could just save your fur baby’s life – or at the very least, make her happier and more comfortable for longer.
With these ground rules in place, you can talk calmly to your animal naturopath about how best to use holistic medicine to successfully treat cat diseases.
