Persistent FLUTD in l7 yr. old cat

First symptoms of FLUTD date back a year but got much worse
about 5 mos. ago. She has
had traditional vet treatment
but it persists. Frequent
urination, straining, blood in
urine etc. Numerous ultra
sounds showed no stones, ph of
urine is 7, labs show chronic
infection, cutlture of urine
in Oct showed Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Citrobacter freundii and Klebsiella pneumoniae. She
was treated with Orbax heavily,
then Amoxi was added when problem persisted. Bloodwork
shows all other values within
normal range.
Surely there are homeopathic
remedies to quiet her bladder and reduce inflammation. I
dont know what to do. She is
on medication now and has
had more blood.
Oh yes, two batches of urine
with blood clots was sent to
pathologist with nothing showing but "blood clots"..
no suspicious cells.
Does anyone have a suggestion?
Thank you,
Donna/aka brightly

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
The most likely to help is Cantharis 6x twice a day for two weeks .

Then STOP and Wait for 2 weeks

Walkin, thank you.
Do I need to stop everything
else? Antibiotics, supplements etc or can I just
add remedy?

You should definitely stop antibiotic treatment as soon as you find other alternative avenues. Antibiotics suppress the problem. You don't want to end up down the road with a cat who is in renal failure or has bladder cancer.

Most vets recommend what they are taught. They are taught to prescribe drugs and hand out bags of specially formulated pet food. Enough to band-aid the problem or suppress it.

Antibiotics mean anti-life, so they destroy everything that is good and bad. Intestines have good bacteria needed for digestion. This is why after a round of antibiotics most animals develop diarrhea or extreme constipation.

Please purchase a good probiotic from your health food store to put the good guys back into her intestines. Mix it in a bit of yogurt, goat's milk or minced meat for her.

I don't know what you feed her but........

The number one thing you can do now is to put her on a raw food diet. Canned food and dry food especially are a number one cause of urinary issues in animals. I almost lost a cat because of my once reluctance to switch to raw. Now the sight of kibble or canned food makes me laugh at how ignorant I was.

Dry food is too drying on the body. It dries it out so to speak. It is dead, no-life, and no nutritional value to it. Cats come from lions and tigers. Lions and tigers in zoos eat raw meat. They are fed this because the zoo keepers know they need it to survive. Because they are animals.

Leaving food out all day is another big mistake. That forces the animal to make urine every time they smell the food. Raw is best fed twice daily. Left out for 20-45 minutes and then removed.

On this forum I have a bit on raw diets under "Natural Animal health."

Cantharis sounds like a good fit and I would begin her on it asap.

You can give the remedy apart from antibiotics and other supplements in a clean mouth. Meaning no food or water prior to or after. Crush the remedy pellet between two spoons. Gently grab her by the scruff of the neck, with the tip of the spoon ease her mouth open and empty the powder onto her tongue. Do not touch the remedy pellets with your fingers. It can weaken them. Tip them from the cap onto the spoon.

Best,

Woops!
Thanks for all the info. I
am taking baby steps into the
realm of "raw" but have pressed the canned food for
moisture. I am intimidated
by all the ratios when feeding raw. I got some
Natures Variety freeze dried
medallions, soaked it in water and Trudy did nibble at
it but spewed out the bone
fragments. I give her raw
bloody stew beef 2-3 times
a week 2-3 chunks at a time.
I figure it is like a super
supplelment with the blood
and enzymes etc. Back several weeks ago I stopped
all antibiotics because she
was still haveing the problem
and embarked on supplements,
IP6, Beta Glucans, CoQ10,
Standard Process Whole Body
Support, natural Geriatric
vitamins supplement etc. But
then got scared when she flared up again and now we
are back on medication out of
fear of the "nasty bug" that
showed up on her culture.
I will get the remedy. I will
work on the raw...being a vegetarian I am squeamish.
Thank you so much.

Would the liquid be as potent
as the pells?

You could try the liquid.

If she was vaccinated you may also want to look into giving her some Thuja to remove the negative effects of the vaccinations.

And if she or any other animal has a tendency to urinary crystals/blockages/stones, order some Urtica Urens Q and keep it on hand. Save my cats life. You can also apply it topically for burns.

Just think of raw feeding as this. You are giving back to her what she needs. What is bred into her blood for thousands of years. That animal instinct in her will thank you.

As for raw feeding ratios. BARF websites go into it. Nothing is exact, not even in nature. But it is mostly ground flesh then some ground organ meat and lastly a very small amount of pureed veggies along with supplements.

Even if you buy her prepared frozen raw food that is a great start.

Trudy has had no vaccinations
in years and years..very low
risk and healthy till this.
I live in the country but there is a pet supply store
about 45 minutes from me and
they carry some of the frozen
ground meat stuff for dogs.
Could I use that for a while?
Ill go and see if supplements
are covered in the Natural
Animal Health portion of the
forum. I gave her more raw
stew beef today and she was
so funny...she would carry
pieces around then eat them.
Is there anywhere that you
know of where I can order
the Cantheris and Bioplasma
and get it quickly??
I called the only two health
stores in the town of any size and they had neither.

Try homeopathy overnight.

Grind or mince the meat for him.
