Attention Simone : How to give liquid dilution remedy to cat

Dear Simone,

I visited a holistic vet who asked me to give my cat 3 drops of liquid dilution Berberis 6x dissolved in 1 oz. of water to my cat. The liquid is 20% Alcohol.

How do I give 6 teaspoons of liquid, which is 1 oz, to my cat as a dose?

Please let me know what to do.

Thank you Declan

Dear Declan,

Just get a dropper of some sort- you may
have to buy a dropper bottle.

Suction up the dilution, then just squirt
it into the sides of the mouth as best
you can.

Dear Simone, thank you so much for your hep. I gave my cat liquid remedy via syringe successfully,

My new vet has asked me to leave my elderly cat at the clinic on Monday for tests and ultrasound of kidneys and bladder. She has just lost her vision due to possible untreated hypertension.

It is very important that she is calm and relaxed because the vet will try to check her BP and give meds if needed.
My cat is nervous and anxious since losing her sight. Slight vision remains. She can be fiesty at times. You can touch her for a while but then she starts growling and gets her claws out. I know that she will be stressed when I leave her for several hours at the veterinary clinic.

Is there a homeopathic remedy that I can give her to calm her prior to this visit?

I have Bach's rescue remedy but I do not know if this is useful or not,

I am so grateful to everyone who responds to my posts. It is a difficult time for my pet and I.

Best wishes Happy New Year. Declan

Hi Declan,

I would try the rescue remedy out before Monday - see if it works.

I have known a few people with dogs sensitive to thunder and
fireworks that have used Rescue Remedy with good results.

If your cat is more calm when you are with her, then you might
want to ask if you can be there for the tests. That might be
very comforting for her and you.Ultrasound is not very invasive
and it is not like asking to be present for surgery.

Sometimes vets have asked me to leave the cat way prior to
procedures and I never do that- it is easier for them perhaps,
but my cats will get extra stressed.

I wish you all the best with the cats health and a wonderful
New Year.

Dear Simone,

I brought my cat who has chronic renal failure and blindness to the vet this morning. Her heart is galloping and she is not eating or drinking.

Vet says galloping heart is possibly due to hyperthyroidism or hypertension. My cat is dehydrated also.

Vet is prescribing a phosphorous binder because her levels are high which are causing loss of appetite. She is receiving subcutaneous fluids at this time.

I read online that Natrum Muriaticum 200C is the remedy for Hyperthyroidism. Do you think this will help my cat's heart rate to slow down? Please let me know the frequency and dose duration if this remedy is suitable?

I usually dissolve 1 pellet of a remedy in 4 ozs. of water, stir briskly and give pet 1 teaspoon. Please let me know if this method is correct.

Sincere thanks for your prompt replies. Declan

Hi Declan,

Getting that subcutaneous fluids is a major
help- it is very basic, so make sure she gets
that as needed and you can learn to do it yourself-
will save more stressful vet visits.

No on the Nat Mur- Hyperthyroidism is a long
treatment and it has to be done based on the
totality of symptoms- it is not a "this for that"

Your cat has so much going on right now with the
kidneys, dehydration etc, IMO just follow the
vet advice for now.

Dear Simone,

I think my cat is close to death today. She will not eat or drink and has not passed any urine today since she was given subcutaneous fluids.

My heart aches today. Her respirations are at 60 beats per minute for hours now. The vet said earlier today that her heart rate is 200 beats per minute.

I feel so helpless because I do not know what to do to decrease her respirations. I am assuming that her heart is failing.

Thank you for your help. Declan

I am so sorry Declan. You have done everything
you could think of for some time now.

It is hard to let go of your longtime friend
and companion and accept when there is nothing
more you can do.

It is a very personal thing-how you want to handle
this.I have been thru this twice now, it is
not easy.

Prayers for you and your friend,

Dear Simone,

My dear cat was put to sleep this evening. Her heart failed and lungs were full of fluid. She was suffering.

Thank you for your support and help.

Dear Declan,

I feel you did the right thing. I had to also
end the suffering of my cat, who was almost 18 years
old.My family cherishes all the wonderful memories
of her - you have my deepest sympathies and prayers.

Best regards,
