Kadwa - kitten with polyp, please advise

One of my rescue kittens has presented with polyp behind soft palate, causing infection in right ear canal. Veterinary treatment is to remove polyp, administer steroid injection to reduce likelihood polyps will return. Recurrence is not uncommon with this method. Can I use thuja 30c to treat? Will this help immune system to rid papilloma virus?

Another older rescue kitten had a polyp removed using veterinary method. I would also like to supply homeopathic remedy for this juvenile cat, to help prevent recurrence.

Both felines are playful, engaging, and aside from physical symptoms due to polyp have been well in themselves.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Yes. Thuja 30 twice a day for 15 days may be given and it's effects may be noted over next 10-15 days.

Thuja 30 twice a day for 7 days may be given to prevent recurrence in the second case.

Is the dosage frequency ok? Does thuja aggravate with high repetition of dose?I gave the first kitten her first dose and she just slept and slept, a very deep sleep from afternoon to following morning. That is very unusual, she is very energetic, and active many times day and night, with cat naps in between. Should I continue to dose her?

Generally it doesn't aggravate. You may go ahead.

Ok thank you. I have not seen any more discharge from kitten's ear. Will be taking her to vet so they can look properly, and continue from there. Thank you Kadwa for your help.

I had not seen any sign of discharge from kitten's ear since the second day after first dose of thuja 30c. I took her for a vet check yesterday to assess her ear canal and ear drum. The infection is gone (on first vet consult the description was "like milky soup" in the ear canal, and ear drum not visible), and now aside from slight redness of the eardrum which is visible there is no wax or other build up in the canal. This is without antibiotic meds, and only homeopathic thuja 30c, kitten has had nothing else different to her routine or intake (her diet is mostly raw meat and chicken broth). The bulging downwards of the soft palate that vet had noted as common symptom of polyp (pressing down from behind soft palate) has also gone.

Her vet had said it can take at least 10-14 days to see that type of ear infection clearing with antibiotic use, and I took her for follow up assessment on the 7th day, having had no antibiotic (clavulox prescribed). If kitten had been showing signs of distress including lethargy, high temp. and/or going off her food, then I would have cautiously begun with antibiotic, however she had no other symptom of ear infection aside from the discharge that I noticed which prompted the vet visit.

Kitten will be going for her spay surgery when she is to size, and vet will be able to observe more fully the ear/nose/throat area for sign of polyp when kitten is under anaesthetic for that surgery, but I am hopeful that things will be resolved by that time.

Time will tell for second case, as recurrence of polyp symptom is usually seen within 12-18 months, however she has been gaining weight more easily and is doing very well.
