| Cat with Crystals in Bladder |
Answered by: Kerry Hackett
Question from: Carolyn
Posted on: November 27, 2006
Is there a herbal treatment that I can help prevent this type of condition to happen in my cat? She has had surgery for this problem and is on a commercial diet recommended by my vet, but she still gets crystals.
Urinary tract crystals can be made up of a number of substances so it is important to know with which type you are dealing before herbal recommendations can be made. However, many caretakers find that cats on a good, homemade diet seldom have problems with bladder crystals. Please see the work of Richard Pitcairn "Natural Health for Dogs and Cats", "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat" and "Cats, Naturally" by Juliette de Bairacli Levy and "The Barf Diet" by Ian Billinghurst for further information and recipes.
