Feline bladder infections can be a very serious and very painful concern for cat owners. The build up of bacteria in the urinary system causes the formation of crystals, which result in intense pain. If left untreated, bladder infections can lead to more serious complications like kidney failure so it is very important to be aware of the symptoms and what you can do to treat them.
Bladder infections tend to be more common in cats than dogs, and they can occur at any age. The key symptoms of cat bladder infections are straining to urinate (even crying when doing so), blood in the urine, fever, lethargy, loss of appetite and a tender lower abdomen. If your cat is exhibiting these symptoms, you should take it to the vet immediately to get a proper diagnosis, as urinary infections can sometimes be a symptom of an underlying illness.
Feline bladder infections are generally caused by a bacterial infection in the urinary tract. Bacteria can enter the urinary tract from many different sources. Commercial pet foods, improper food storage and unsafe feeding methods can all open the door for dangerous bacteria such as e coli to enter your pet’s system. Some medications and certain conditions, such as diabetes and tumors, can also trigger bladder infections.
Fortunately, cat bladder infections are relatively easy to diagnose and can be successfully treated with a course of antibiotics or anti-inflammatories, depending on the severity of the infection. The problem with standard treatment is that while antibiotics treat the symptoms of infection, they do not treat the underlying cause. And while they remove harmful bacteria from the body they also remove helpful bacteria, weakening the immune system.
In order to thoroughly treat your pet, you need to find a method which will reach beyond the symptoms and target the cause of the infection itself. Natural products, made from a special blend of medicinal herbs, can fight the pain and discomfort of feline bladder infections and also help your cat’s body to heal itself from within for lasting results.
Using carefully selected herbs such as berberis vulgaris, cantharis and staphysagris, 100% natural medications can provide gentle, soothing healing for the symptoms of feline bladder infections and also boost the health of the immune system, resulting in better general health.
Of course, the healthier the lifestyle your cat maintains, the better its health will be so in order to avoid cat bladder infections, you need to make sure that your cat eats a well balanced diet and has regular access to clean water and several litter boxes which are cleaned regularly.
Bladder infections can be an unpleasant experience for cats and their owners, so be sure to take whatever steps you can to treat and prevent them.
