Cat and Polycystic Kidney Disease
Answered by: Kerry Hackett
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 ( 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.
