cat utiMy 18lb,seven year old cat has had chronic UIT's ever since he had a PU surgery five years ago after suffering from stones in his bladder. We changed his diet and he has been much better. However, I just noticed that he has that odor that he gets when he has the infection and is also beginning to bleed.
I usually take him to the local vet and they give him antibiotics. I was hoping to be able to give him homeopathic medicine this time. Does anyone have any suggestions for my cat, Lomie, and I.

he recently hat a recurring uti. i think because of stress from our move caused it. i tried cantharis 30 c whic is a know remedie for uti- uti problems: violent inflammation, intorlerabe, constant urging to urinate, restlessness, goes to litter agaain and again
uva ursi i just used the other day in tincture form for him which has not had a nother problem. this is usually for violent pain and blockages. he was not blocked but it was the one the finally cured this episode.
also find something to boost his immune system. when it is chronic like that there is mosst likely a immune problem. try transfer factor which is good for animals and humans.
uva ursi tincture a just put a dropper full in some cream and he licked it right up. this works fast.
cantharis 30c -4 pellets disolved in cream/half/half and ssee how he does with that one dose you can repeat that few times aday for a few days.
let me know how he reacts

I am going to assume that this is the same cat that also had a problem with asthma and will look at the following:
Bacteria in Urine
History of Bladder Stones
Odour to urine from infection
Blood in urine
There are a few remedies that come to mind but I would suggest a single dose of:
Calc Carb 30C: Give 3 pellets either in a little food or dissolved in some water.
This is a constitutional remedy and should help him loose weight, stop the asthma, as well as strengthening his system to prevent future UTI.
Pulsatilla 30C could also be considered and would be preferrable if your cat seeks out cool places to rest.
Calc Carb will typically seek out warmth while Pulsatilla seeks cool.
Only give one remedy or the other and wait to see what improvements are noticed.
If you live in the city and your drinking water is chemically treated with chlorine or fluoride you might also consider giving your pets bottled or filtered water. Pets are more sensitive to the chemicals than us and often don't drink the quantity of water they should and this results in concentrated urine and infrequent urination which can predispose them to bladder stones and infection.
Stress or anything that causes a cat to hold its urine such as a dirty litter box or competition with other pets also sets a cat up for problems.
Usually a cat will without going to the litter box... Without the flow of urine to wash out the urethra (the tube from the bladder to the outside), bacteria is able to move from outside into the bladder. Once there the bacteria will alter the PH acidalkaline balance of the urine and this will cause minerals normally held in solution to precipitate out in the form of crystals. Then when the cat does go to urinate... these crystals plug up the narrow urethra and the cat cann';t urinate... now you have a medical emergency.... which can often be relieved with the correct homeopathic prescription... However I have also found that once the infection, blood and crystals are gone there can still be problems and the cat soon develops the problem again (This is why many vets recomend surgery). The problem is that the bladder was over stretched when it was blocked and the bladder full. This stretching effected the bladder's nervous system and now even though you've gotten rid of the infection etc... the cat is still having problems....When this happens give CAUSTICUM 30C... One dose of 3 pellets should do it.
I hope you will find this information useful and please post and let us know how your cat is doing.

I just used a homeopathic preparation called uti-free that is made for cats with uti. if you google uti-free you can find it. made by petalive i believe. you can buy it. to administer, i crush the tiny pellets into chicken broth or water and serve.
