Cat and Polycystic Kidney Disease

Question from: Kat
Posted on: June 19, 2007

My precious Persian kitty has PKD. Is there anything I can do for him that could stop this from getting worse, or even, dare I hope, reverse the growth of his cysts?

This is a case where you and your cat could benefit highly from the one-on-one relationship that is only possible when seeing a qualified practitioner in your area. To find a professioanl herbalist who has experience with animals please see the website of the Veterinary Botanical Medicine Association (www.vbma.org). There are herbs that may be used in this condition such as Cornsilk (Zea mays) and Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) but it would be best to have a full case history taken and a specific formula made up for your lovely and unique cat.
