Kittens are generally the first to be adopted from Spokane shelters. Generally, because you will have more time with them and they carry little to no baggage. But countless senor cats carry good baggage. Sadly, many of their owners have left this world and no one would take their sweet cat in. Why not give a senior cat a chance?
To begin trimming the claws, hold your cat securely in your lap (or have a friend hold him) and extend one of his feet. Gently press on one digit of the paw until the claw comes out. Trim off the white tip (about 1/8 or 1/4 of an inch [0.3 or 0.6 ml]). Do not cut into the quick, which is the pink part of the nail. This is where the nerves and blood and vessels are. If you accidentally cut into the quick, apply a styptic pencil to the nail to stop bleeding. Your cat will be upset because he is in pain, so you should end the grooming session at once. Give him some time to calm down before you try trimming another nail.
Some of the artificial preservatives in cats life (such as BHA and BHT) are suspected carcinogens. If that doesn’t sound like something that you want your cat eating, grab a cat food with natural preservatives like vitamins E and C.
But the real joker in the deck regarding a raw food diet is kitty herself. Will she even eat raw food? Soon after diagnosing my cat Scout with a feline UTI, I did the research on raw food and decided to try to switch her over. I found a local pet food store that sold raw meat. I picked up a small amount of rabbit and chicken for her.
I wouldn’t voluntarily eat anything that had “by-product” in its name. Meat by-products include things like brain, kidneys, liver, and spleen. Sounds appetizing? I didn’t think so. “Meal” is another process that produces similarly scary things.
Just feeding your cat vegetables is not a good idea. The cat’s diet has to be as close to the one he would eat in the wild as possible. Protein, which is one of the most important parts of a diet are only found in meats and some vegetables.
So a typical homeopathic treatment of stomatitis in your cat will entail a change of diet to a natural one and the most appropriate homeopathic treatment that considers your cat’s personal symptoms. This approach ensures a quick resolution to the current problem and preventative measures for its future recurrence.
