Feline lower urinary tract disease is one of the unpleasant aspects of being a cat. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation out there about the disease, leading to the deaths of many cats.
Here are 5 common myths about feline urinary tract disease so you can separate what's true from what's false and keep your cat healthy and safe.
Myth #1: There is no way to prevent feline lower urinary tract disorder.
Some pet owners make the mistake of believing that they can do nothing to prevent feline urinary problems. As a result, their cats suffer from recurrent infections. You CAN prevent urinary infections in your cat by making sure his diet is optimal and giving him natural remedies such as homeopathy.
Myth #2: Feline lower urinary tract disease can only be treated with antibiotics.
Antibiotics are commonly prescribed by vets in order to treat UTIs in cats but there are alternatives available. Some pet owners are weary about giving their cats antibiotics because of the potentially significant side effects they can cause. Furthermore, antibiotics are only a quick fix that suppresses symptoms; they don't get to the root of the problem. Homeopathic remedies are highly effective in treating and preventing feline urinary problems. They are much more affordable than antibiotics too.
Myth #3: Feline lower urinary tract disorder only affects male cats.
While it's true that male cats suffer from urinary issues such as blockage more frequently than female cats due to the fact that they are more susceptible to stone and crystal formation as well as the fact that they have prostate glands, female cats also suffer from urinary problems. Both male and female cats would do well taking a homeopathic remedy on a regular basis to prevent the occurrence of urinary problems. Look for a homeopathic remedy that contains proven urinary tonics like uva ursi and cantharis.
Myth #4: Cats that suffer from recurrent feline lower urinary tract disease should eat commercial cat food.
Somehow somebody out there got the majority of cat owners to believe that cats that suffer from recurrent urinary issues should eat commercial cat food, which supposedly has the perfect balance of minerals. WRONG. Cats need to avoid commercial cat food because it alters the pH level of urine and makes them more susceptible to infections. The best diet for cats that suffer from urinary problems should consist of natural, unprocessed food.
Myth #5: Natural remedies for feline lower urinary tract disorder don't work.
You'd be surprised at the effectiveness of natural remedies for feline urinary problems. They are actually much better than conventional treatments because they address the underlying problems that lead to urinary infections and the like.
Look for a homeopathic remedy. Homeopathy is the best natural treatment available because it restores balance at a cellular level, strengthens your cat's urinary tract and bladder, and keeps urine flow optimal. Homeopathic remedies contain only minute amounts of natural ingredients so you don't have to worry about side effects and you can give them to your cat safely every single day.
Remember these myths and the facts behind them so you don't make the mistake of giving your cat the wrong treatment. The effectiveness of homeopathy is real and you can prevent your cat from suffering from feline lower urinary tract disease altogether by administering a homeopathic remedy on a regular basis.
