Cat allergies natural cure

Common Questions and Answers about Cat allergies natural cure


Avatar f tn My cat Jimi has severe allergies. We think the dust is causing it as we live on the desert side of Maui, Hawaii. The vet doesn't know actually what is causing it either . The redness got so bad in his right eye he caused an ulcer which is taking forever to heal and now both eyes are red, bulging and sore. I bathe him once a week, wipe his face clean everyday , have his head in a cone (so he can't rub his eyes) and with the vets recommendation have tried every drop/ointment known to man !
Avatar f tn As it turned out it was almost a complete waste, but the kitty shrink did say she thought it was allergies, but added that the cat should continue seeing her as well. I took the cat off of his psyche meds and returned to our original vet, he decided to biopsy the 5 areas where the fur was gone. That was useless as well. The vet decided to then test him for allergies and it came back that he was allergic to 32 different things.
Avatar m tn dont try any that claim to be 'natural' yet have heavy pine scents. a good one that many are happy with is by Dr. Elseys Precious Cat...preferably the SENIOR which supposedly is chemical free. or you can try paper pellets...or beads if kitty will use. And what are you feeding? this type of allergy is either food related or environmental. if you are feeding dry kibble, this is full of grains(common allergy) and chemical/preservatives. I would try a canned food, preferably one with NO grains...
Avatar f tn It may well be the cat litter. The all natural without perfume is best, but with all natural you have to change it often and keep it scooped because it will grow bacteria that can cause urinary tract infections and kidney infections....all litter will do this. I do house calls for my cats and it is so much easier. I heard a butcher tell me years ago that he fed his cats cooked chicken and rice. I don't know if that is balanced or not. I know they need grass or greens too.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have adopted a middle aged cat named Rudolph, age estimated at about 7 by the vet, from a shelter about one and a half months ago. He adjusted well to the environment and seems to be happy. The only issue is that he is throwing up a big hairball about once every week that comes out with pretty much the whole last meal he had. He is just a short haired cat and he is being brushed regularly and doesn't even shed that much hair at all.
Avatar m tn I'm guessing you don't have to deal with allergies or a science degree ..... take a general introduction to biology course that covers the immune system and you'll see why "ignoring" the allergies isn't possible. I dealt with my cat allergies with antihistamines for 4 years, then they stopped working. I was miserable but ignored the symptoms and tried to work through them.
548980 tn?1214826012 Hi, Sorry to hear about your severe allergies. I know of an item you can try that is natural and will not have any of the side effects like those of the antibiotics. It is a Agaricus mushroom extract called Agarigold. I know that it boosts your immune system and will combat your allergies. Succumbing to allergies is a result of a compromised immune system. You can read what is can do here, as well as what it has done for others: http://****.
Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
1716071 tn?1308806756 Hi Guys , I am just chiming in to let you know my cat has food allergies. I was told to put her on Natural Balance Duck or Venison soft food as well as their hard food for treats. You cannot allow your cat to have anything other than these 2 things--no treats, table scrapes, tuna juice etc. This will take at least a month to 3 months before you know if it is an allergy. You need to give it time. My cat has now developed IBD and Pancreatitis so she is on the Prescription Hills Diet Z/D. Yuck!
Avatar n tn I was wondering if anyone would consider NAET for eliminating their allergies. NAET is Natural Allergy Elimination Technique. I suppose it falls into the category of Energy Medicine, or maybe hocus-pocus! However, I tried it with my son, and it worked. Unfortunately, the only thing my son seemed to be allergic to at the time, was grass and cat hair, so these were the only allergies he was "cured" of. The practitioner was very professional, and highly educated.
Avatar n tn Saw 2 ENTs before finally being referred to an allergy specialist and had the testing done- found dust, pollenn, cat etcs allergies. I have horrible face/neck pain, headaches and a feeling of my throat being constantly clogged up. It has made me so down I keep crying and feels like its taking over my life. Im meant to be marrying next year and should be the happiest ive ever been, but instead of that some days i feel like giving up. I don't want to live like this.
Avatar n tn I am convinced that this is a cure and that the Chlorpheniramine somehow bonds to the hydrocodone to be most affective. Problem is ofcourse that it is a narcotic and no doctor will give that on a daily bases for the rest of my life. Are there any other drugs that could possibly bond with the Chlorpheniramine and take it right to the nasal area? I have done all the alergy testing three times. Head xray, Barium swallow, and all the prescription sprays, decongestants and antihistamines.
Avatar n tn If you find out that the wine is the culprit, check out sulfite allergies. Everything in the onion and garlic family is in the natural sulfite family, not just grapes.
Avatar f tn After only a day of using these the smell has gone! So there is a cure out there...its just finding the right i dont know if its the cream that works or the tablets or both together but im just glad its gone. I have to finish the course tho. I was told that the smell was caused by bacteria that lives in the nose which had got infected. Hope this helps. This discussion is related to bad odor smell from nose (continued).
Avatar m tn You could also mention to your vet that you have started feeding your cat a brand of dry cat food. They usually ask if you're feeding your cat something new. Good luck to you and your kitty.
1492345 tn?1289259468 It's horrible to watch. I researched, and found that some vets are having success treating cat allergies with zyrtec. The generic is cetirizine and it is available OTC. Our kitty weighs 10 pounds. The vet had us start with 1/2 of a human dose (24 hour pill, 30mg). We now give him 1/2 pill in the morning and 1/2 pill at night (a human dose split in two), and for a while his itchy/scratchy definitely got better. I also suffer seasonal allergies, and the last week has been horrible.
Avatar n tn Hi beachkat -- love the name! ;-) Medications react differently to everyone, that's why sometimes it's necessary to revisit the doctor, or better yet, a specialist in order to go through that route of discovery, trying to find what works best for each patient. Some doctors just prescribe meds carte blanche and aren't really sensitive to individual patient needs. Others are not like that and try to find the right combination of medications suitable for each patient.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering from allergies/rhinitis for years now and I can't take it anymore. I have a solid job with good insurance. I am constantly congested and it is becoming a problem with my work. I have had 3 surgeries on my nose: 2 partial turbinectomy, 1 deviated septum surgery. I spend every 15 minutes of the day in the bathroom trying to blow my nose and nothing ever comes out. Every ENT I go to says they will not perform a full turbinectomy.
Avatar n tn (Also I have not had a cold or the flu in years.) I have tried all the 'natural cures' and I have had CAT scans XRAYS and MRI's and exploratory sinus surgery. I have been to multiple allergists and ENT's so I'm no amateur at this-I have worked very, very hard to find a cure. Some of the teas will help for a short(hour) period of time but some of the herbals make the drainage worse.
Avatar f tn Today I removed all scented cat litter and replaced it with unscented after reading that if allergies are on the legs it could be the litter causing it He's going to the vet hopefully tomorrow, and is probably going to need a collar until healed, and I'm also going to ask that he give him a different med. I'm also going to ask him if Benedryl will help.
541150 tn?1306037443 I am merely talking about YOU keeping an eye on what YOUR cat eats, or YOU being in control of what your cat consumes, because I found that the most expensive canned foods also made my cat bleed, and yes, I tried all of them trying to find a cure for my cat when the cure was in my fridge, frozen, fresh from the market: Human Intended Meat.
Avatar n tn this is a symptom of an allergic reaction to something, fleas/foods/dust or pollen Similar to the allergies we humans get only in Pets the allergies show up on their skin where we sneeze of get stuffed up. My cat has this disease and he gets small scabs on his skin and when he scratches or licks they break open and get raw and sore...he has an allergy to certain foods...we think and are in the process of trying different ones.
Avatar n tn I was able to spend the weekend with my cat with minimal symptoms. I'm the best I've been with her. When I am actually exposed to a cat, I can feel the spots in my right lung and right side of my nose where it's inflamed where the irritant hits.  However, this is not true on the left side anywhere in my body. All the symptoms I experience are on the right side of my body. I'm fully medicated for allergies, Xyzal, Singulair, Advair, NAsacort, Maxair, and I'm a neti pot master.
Avatar m tn Is there any natural cure for this kind of problem which will be effective.What is the medical name of this problem. The sounds are like any vehicle is passing nearby.
518117 tn?1429279873 Be convinced that YOU yourself can cure your cat. In this case, knowledge of what you need to do can safe her. Yes, take her to the vet on Monday is she gets worse; but remember constipation is related to nothing but food, and it makes sense. Hairballs? A diet fit for carnivores will prevent those from forming, trust me. I am seeing it!! Why do I make emphasis on the digestive enzymes? Nearly every pet can benefit from supplementation with enzymes.
Avatar dr m tn For example, if you have a mildly deviated septum, suffering from mild allergies will swell up your nasal turbinates, narrowing you nasal passageways. This may not be enough to clog up your nose, but if you have flimsy nostrils or had rhinoplasty in the past that weakened the nostrils, then breathing in with a stuffy nose may trigger your nostrils to collapse. Starting from the tip of your nose, the first thing you must do is to find out if you have flimsy nostrils.

Avatar f tn I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative. I have had bloodwork done and it was negative. Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing same symptoms. I am going insane trying to deal with this!
1582790 tn?1296610539 - Stuffy nose in morning, can't breathe through nose sometimes - Get pressure in head occasionally through the day, sometimes turns into headaches - Hard to breathe through nose sometimes - Feel pressure in ears sometimes - I've been diagnosed with Allergies at allergist Ok so I used to work at the Casino where there was smoke billowing through the buildings. Well after I quit that job I noticed a mucus problem that came from nowhere. I ignored it for the whole spring and summer.
