Pancreatitis in Cats

Things going along great with kitty until all of a sudden many things are wrong!

By Claude West (Cat Man)

What the heck is pancreatitis and what just happened to my cat?  Seems even the veterinarian cannot exactly explain what or why because this condition feline pancreatitis, natural diet, digestive enzymes, cat healthusually exists when there are other compromised medical conditions with the cat.  There may be an ongoing infection in the intestines or condition with the liver at the same time making diagnosis with just a physical examination difficult.

The pancreas is a small organ tucked under the beginning of the small intestine and its purpose is to:

  •         Produce hormones like insulin to regulate blood sugar level
  •          Digestive Enzymes that help reduce food to simple usable compounds

It is the second function releasing digestive enzymes into the small intestine that usually is the cause of an inflamed pancreas.  Several specific blood tests along with ultra sound imaging have proven valuable in diagnosis of pancreatitis.

Here is Dr. Karen Becker from Mercola.com providing additional information about this disease.

Causes of pancreatitis are under investigation but pathology indicates that somehow the digestive enzymes have leaked back inside the pancreas after they were activated causing inflammation to the organ.  Some events that may cause this condition are: Continue reading

Seems like just yesterday with I first blogged about making resolutions for my three cats.  To date we have achieved most of the New Year’s resolutions I made for 2013 and am looking forward to continuing this for 2014.

Sadie our senior kitty!

I am happy to report that her last blood work had improved levels although the disease will continue to progress.  She is holding her own and we have recently started IV fluids to keep her from dehydration and help her reduce toxin buildup in her blood and urine.  My 2014 resolution for Sadie is to continue with the natural supplements and IV fluids.

Towards the last quarter of 2013, I started using a holistic veterinarian who makes house calls.  We had tried some acupuncture but Sadie is not comfortable with that therapy.  One of the best discoveries for health help is energy healing from Reisa Stone.  She gave Sadie both energy healing and training so Sadie can continue it herself.  I highly recommend Reisa to provide energy healing with any of your pets that are sick suffering with injury or disease.  Continue reading

FDA Crackdown Pet Food Industry

Unfortunately, FDA crackdown is not for the right reasons!

By Claude West (The Cat Man)

Well they went and did it by making it public that the FDA has decided that pet food makers must follow the food, drug, and cosmetic laws that Congress pet food recall, diamond pet food recall, commercial pet food, salmonella, FDA, passed back in 1938.  Unfortunately, the FDA crackdown is not for the right reasons!  I was getting the latest scoop from Susan Thixton’s website, the Truth about Pet Food how the FDA has decided to step in and start regulating the pet food industry.

Lament for Journey

Where will she travel and where is she going?

By Claude West (The Cat Man)

She came one spring just a handful of kitten, short hair with mottled colors and speckles.  We did not know where you came from or where you were missing cat, journeygoing and thought the name Journey was fitting for you.  Oh, the joys of a kitten watching you grow.  The games you play so full of energy, no fear, and bold yet so loving when you slept with us bringing many tears of joy and injured toes to our life. 

As a teen, you could not get enough of life your activity made us dizzy just watching you run, jump, and hide.  What pleasure you brought to your older brother Tomtom who was ecstatic to have a playmate for life.  We saw you take him on three times your size and as a kitten; you were so bold without fear.  There were times where you wore him out, so full of energy so full of life.

Why Use An Animal Communicator

Part 3

How would you like to be able to have a conversation with your pet?  How many times did you wish that you could?

 By Claude West (The Cat Man)animal communicator, animal communication

First, I want to address the question of how can I benefit from using an animal communicator.  They can provide you with how your cat is really feeling both mentally and physically.  Combine this with your veterinarian and you have a complete picture that is more proactive over waiting to see if your pet is sick or not.  Another benefit is they are able to help your cat through energy healing/training.  Animals have this innate skill to use energy to facilitate healing but may need some assistance or direction.

What Is A Holistic Veterinarian

Part 2

Does your current veterinarian recommend natural products to help support your cat’s health?

By Claude West (The Cat Man)

Some allopathic veterinarians (traditional vets) have expanded their education to include holistic supplementation and treatment.  This makes them more attractive to individuals who prefer natural healing but also holistic veterinarians, herbal supplements, energy healing, acupunture, alternative medicineprovides another medical dimension for your pet’s health.

In America, veterinary school is the only way to practice veterinary medicine with a license and currently they do not offer holistic medicine in the curricula.  Therefore, obtaining certification in various types of holistic medicine, the veterinarian must attend special seminars and workshops to obtain this education.  This is why there are so few holistic veterinarians even in high population centers.
