Anyone know holistic remedies for cats?

Posted by kara lynne on August 22, 2003, at 20:39:21

My cat has always had sensitive skin, but now she's chewing her tummy fur right off. She's had a lot of stress moving with me lately and that might be part of it. The vet put her on Flagyll (heavy meds) for another condition and said the only way to treat the itching is with a cortisone shot at a later time. Anything topical the cat will lick off.

I know there is much controversy out there lately as to what you should feed cats; the new thinking is only wet food, it used to be mostly dry food. I can't go to extremes--one friend told me to call a holistic vet in New Mexico who would prescribe a homeopathic remedy, but he likes all the cats to eat raw meat and you have to go to great measures to prepare it, and change their entire lifestyle. (I'm sure he would want her off the Flagyll, but I'm going to have her finish it.)

I can barely make dinner for myself at this point, but I want to know if anyone knows of anything that might help my kitty and her itchy skin, that isn't too complicated.

I am giving her Bach flower remedies occasionally for her frazzled nerves.

Thank you in advance.
