Cat with chronic head congestion and other symptoms

Hello Dr. Anuj,
I'm not well versed in homeopathy but have benefited from it.
I have a sick cat. She's 11 years old and has had chronic head and sinus congestion for about two years. I have worked with a classic homeopathic vet but was unable to find a remedy that worked. This last year we moved-and a traditonally trained vet said Emily, my calico feline, had some inflammation in her right ear (I had been treating her on and off for an ear infection and she had been digging and in ear and shaking her head, but more slowly than now).

I unfortunately have, after months of failed online pet homeopathic remedies, now scratches behind her ears. She shakes head in a quick burst of movement. She flings what appears to be clear mucus from nose when shakes head and licks her nose alot. Her breathing is very congested. you can hear it. She at times back swallows the nasal mucus to breathe better. And more recently, occasionally sticks out her tongue a little. I think I've seen her mouth breath a few times within the last several months. I'm not always with her so hard to tract. Has had clear tears from both eyes on occasion. she has rubbed her forehead and had a slight fever on and off mostly in afternoon. Not every week.

I now give her a mix of hypericum, Silacea, Mag Phos, Belladonna all 30c... on top of her food-for ear and right side lower molar gum inflammation which is not as red.

Before she eats: Arsen Album,to help gastritis so she will not vomit and: Phos, Silicea to help with gum inflammation.
I just started 2 days ago giving her some Bach flower remedies to hopefully address any emotional issues. I truly hope you can help us. She's been through alot.
Her poops are good, firm, and she pees alot. I add water to her canned food (all food is canned).

She is somewhat aloof. little interest in playing. Not a lap cat-except for short time. Loves me to give her box rides. I'm holding her in a small box giving a guided tour of our house.
Sweet in nature. Has tolerated alot of syringes with remedies and ear remedies. Sleeps alot. Obsessive licking. Her coat is healthy. At times her leg will twitch (not sure if it's always the same one). She scoots on the rug. this started after anal glands expressed. Vet said anus looks fine, glands not full. I had her checked for worms sometime back. negative results.

She gave a quiet growl at me this week twice. once I was clipping her nail and once for giving her another remedy by mouth. She's never done that before.

All vets have found her to be a sweet,gentle, good natured cat. Easy for them to handle. No aggression showing. She shows interest and even aggression when neighborhood cats walk right next to our lower windows. I think she's just trying to protect her territory. She is an indoor cat.

She's not getting enough exercise or outdoor time --on a leash.

Can I give Arsen Album 30c long term. or alternate with another remedy for gastritis? According to a muscle test her pancreas is at 30%.

I would really appreciate your help Dr. Anuj,I saw where you helped with another cat.
or if someone could step in if Dr Anuj can't help for some reason.. I really need to find relief for Emily.

Thank You! Veeda

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Give Merc Sol 30 three to four times a day.

In addition Nat Sulph Phos 6x,Calc Flour 6x and Kali Mur 6x five tabs of each three times a day.

Feedback after 4 days.

I'm sorry Anuj, I forgot to add that she also sneezes. Not alot but probably several times a day. She spends alot of time alone so hard to know. another thing I missed saying was unfortunately in frustration and with suggestion from vet I gave her Zymox which has Hydrocortisone in it. I have one or two days to go but it's an extended time of application and she still shakes her head so it hasn't helped yet. Should I stop that?

Thank you for your help! Veeda

Dr Anuj,
Looking more closely at your advise. I have these in Boiron pellet form. Can I just add pellets to her food or should I dissolve in a little liquid...or buy the Hylands brand? Is Hylands better?

Also can I add the Merc Sol Pellets with the additional remedies in her food or give separately in a syrings?

Dr. Anuj,

For Clarification...more specific questions
My cat is 10 pounds.

Can I use Schuessler cell salts or ok with Boiron or Hylands (I value your opinion-- is one better than the others) I also have a professional source for homeopathic remedies. It would take more time.

and can I drop onto food or dissolve into a certain amount of water (how much) and use syringe? 1-2 ml?

...the Merc Sol. I have Boiron pellets. How many dissolved in how much water and then how many ml?

I'd like as much specific guidance as you are willing to give me. I'll do my best to follow your advise.

Thank you again! Veeda

Schuessler cell salts can be used.Dissolve 15 pellets of each remedy in a glass of water and give by syringe or put it in drinking water.

MS dissolve 15 pellets in an ounce of water and give it three times a day by syringe.

Alternatively you can give both the remedies simultaneously.
