Although your vet may be quick to prescribe antibiotics for a cat bladder infection, you may wonder if these drugs are so effective, why do the infections keep coming back? This is a smart question and here's the answer: while antibiotics can relieve the symptoms that can cause a urinary infection, they do not cure the issues that gave rise to it. Due to this, an increasing number of fed-up pet owners around the world are turning to holistic solutions which are safer, gentler and more effective.
Although these pet owners are taking their cats' health into their hands, it is still important to take your cat to the vet to determine the cause of a feline bladder infection and make sure it isn't something more serious that requires surgery, like a tumor, bladder stone or struvite crystals.
If the cause of the feline bladder infection is benign, then it is usually treated with antibiotics. Problem is most cats have a super sensitive system and antibiotics can have side effects that are worse than the infection they are designed to treat. What few pet owners realize is that the high doses required to treat the infection can actually aggravate the bladder problem and make it worse. This is why many cats end up with recurring infections. Worse yet, many of these antibiotics are downright ineffective because bacteria becomes resistant to medicines that are frequently prescribed.
Now that you understand the issues, the best thing you can do is to refuse to put your cat on an endless cycle of dangerous antibiotics. Instead, do what other pet owners are doing: treat the cat bladder infection with natural remedies. These homeopathic remedies are more effective than antibiotics because they treat the symptoms without side effects and actually work to heal the issues that caused it in the first place. Natural remedies heal; antibiotics do not.
Natural remedies can also be used on a daily basis to prevent a feline bladder infection from coming back. They are safe and gentle and your cat will not build up a tolerance, so the natural remedy will continue to be effective. In fact, most pet owners administer these remedies on a daily basis as part of their cat's routine care. Best of all, unlike antibiotics, they are easy to administer: you just sprinkle a few granules into your cat's mouth and they dissolve on contact.
Stop the cycle of recurring cat bladder infection by taking your cat's health into your hands. Put your cat on a preventative program and give him a natural remedy daily to support and maintain bladder health. Since there are many natural remedies out there, make sure to do your research, so you can find the best one with the best ingredients for your beloved kitty.
