Kadwa please advise - kitten with bladder issueI was recently called out to catch a kitten, approx. 11 weeks old now, who was hiding under a person's house.
She was effectively blind, her third eyelids were so inflamed and covering her eye. Thin/malnourished, dehydrated, very scared/hiding. She settled very quickly, and was purring and enjoying tummy rubs within a couple of days, so has a friendly temperament.
Her third eyelids seemed almost like pink plastic, very dry and rigid, but they have softened and reduced in pink colouring a lot, and can see about half the eye now. I had been using oculoheel drops, then ran out and they are no longer available, so have used colloidal silver for the past few days.
More concerning is her bladder. When she first arrived there was not much symptom showing, but a few days ago she started crying out and using her blanket to toilet on, very painful urination. On palpation her bladder is hard, and her urination is usually a dribble. Blood test showed no bacterial infection, and all else normal - concentration, kidney function, etc. So it seems like an idiopathic cystitis.
Which remedy would you suggest for this type of hardening/inflammation of membranes - third eyelid and bladder sack. I have started her on 1/6 tsp Bragg's apple cider vinegar in water, syringe fed throughout the day. She had phos. ac. on arrival for dehydration/loss of vital fluids, and arnica for any potential injuries while running around mostly blind. Her appetite is low-medium, she is quite fussy, mostly prefers dry food, which is not great given the condition of her urinary system. She does like chicken broth which she has daily, to keep her hydrated and improve her nutrition.
The vet prescribed metacam anti-inflammatory to be given once daily.
When I massage her bladder she will void some urine, and hasn't cried out yesterday or today, but is still uncomfortable and restless about urinating. Her stool is normal.
I have staphysagria, cantharis, terebinthina in 30c potencies. Would they suit, or another remedy be better?
