Rachel from The Essential Girl blog is here to share her research regarding toxic essential oils. We all love our feline friends, but they have an uncanny knack for getting into things they shouldn’t. So it’s our job as responsible pet owners to be in the know about what’s dangerous for them and then keep it far far away from their cute little noses. Read on for 6 essential oil safety tips to keep your cat safe (without throwing away all your essential oils). Want to learn more about using essential oils with your cat? Inside I cover why using essential oils with your pets can be so beneficial, common mistakes people make when using essential oils with their pets, and I answer all of YOUR burning questions! Researchers have identified two major categories of essential oils that are more dangerous to cats than other mammals (such as humans, dogs or horses). The reason these essential oils are more dangerous to cats lies in the physiology of their liver.
I just saw a terribly stubborn case of feline irritable bowel symptoms healed through natural means. In a series of posts starting with this one, I’ll share everything helpful I learned from that case and other research. I’ll start by doing my best to answer: I am not a vet. Sometimes these are symptoms of intestinal or gastrointestinal cancer – and you want to catch that early. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is an inflammatory immune-reaction syndrome in the gastrointestinal tract. We know healing has been possible for many humans and cats, but the roots of the condition have not been well understood, so doctors have not had reliable solutions. Some may stop using the litter box because it reminds them painful experiences. The symptoms are regular bouts of diarrhea, constipation, or vomiting. IBS has similar symptoms to IBD, and I believe it’s a precursor to IBD. The difference is that IBD is so inflammatory that it causes damage to the intestines. Zithromax is an antibiotic from a macrolide group which is related to erythromycin. This antibiotic is used to stop bacteria growth or terminate bacteria in human body by reducing protein production which is necessary for bacteria to survive. It could be used in combination with other medicines as well as on its own to prevent infection spread in patients with advanced HIV. Many various bacterial infections can be effectively treated by Zithromax in adults, for example STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), upper and lower respiratory, skin and ear infections. It is also commonly used to heal ear infections, pneumonia, strep throat and tonsillitis in children. Generic Zithromax as well as its derivatives can be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. To buy Zithromax you do not have to waste time and money visiting a physician.
Prednisone Liquid Suspension compounded by VetRxDiret is an oral anti-inflammatory agent used to treat many inflammatory, auto-immune and allergy. Prednisone is a corticosteroid, which is something your cat's adrenal glands naturally produces in the form of cortisol. When you start giving prednisone to your likely unwilling feline, her adrenal glands will slow down the production of cortisol dramatically.
