Health Questions & Answers



You have helped me so much in the past with cat skin irritations and pooping outside the box. My question now is, do you have a homeopathic remedy for cat seizures?

Who is having the seizures? Is it Clea? What medications, kind of diet, treats, and supplements are given? What kind of flea products are used?

Dear Dr. Char,

Yes, it is Clea who is having the seizures. She is the only cat we have now (Zane passed a year ago) She is not on any medication. I do give her your Omega 3-6-9. She is an indoor cat, so we do not use any flea products. She gets canned (wet) food for breakfast and dinner (Fancy Feast -- she only likes fish and not poultry) and dry food at lunch (currently Rachel Ray's salmon with brown rice) Occasionally she gets Temptation treats (dairy or catnip flavor)

I did see a product called Nuroplex on the internet, which has good reviews, but I would prefer getting something from you.

RESPONSE:In Chinese medicine seizures can be the result of liver heat rising. I would use the homeopathic DIA-IONX because it contains remedies that aid the liver and kidneys. I would stop the Temptations treat. If you read the label I don't think you would want to give it to someone who is not 100% healthy. You might slice and bake some turkey hotdogs and use small pieces of that as a treat instead. I would also give PROBIOTICS to improve digestion as well as continuing with the OMEGA 3,6,9 to reduce inflammation. I also use Cholodin, a choline- B vitamin supplement when there are seizures.

   I would also stop the dry food  because it contains corn gluten meal.  I would chose a low carbohydrate, higher fat content food. You would gradually change into the new food by increasing the amount of the new food and lowering the amount of old food.  Please let me know what other food you would consider.

It is interesting that you referenced Chinese medicine. For some years I have been doing Qigong and other forms of energy healing -- including EFT and Tellington TTouch. In fact, I have had great success in using TTouch and energy healing with Clea. The first time she has ever had a seizure was on Monday evening -- when she had four seizures during a 12-hour period. There have been none since. I have been doing more TTouch on her this week.

I will not give her any more of the Temptations treats (although she loves them). I will also start weaning her off of the dry food, although she seems to enjoy that more than the wet food. I will order the DIA-IONX, probiotics and Cholodin. As to the wet food, I have bought so many premium brands of canned food and to date have never found one that she would eat at all. She does love the Fancy Feast (only fish flavors). Some of the brands I have ordered are Wellness, Merrick, Royal Canin, Hills, Purina ProPlan and Beyond, Sheba, Blue Buffalo, Halo, Iams, Newman's Own and Natural Balance. Because I had to order these online, I had to order at least 12 cans -- and I have ended up giving a lot of cat food to my local shelter!

As to turkey, she refuses to eat chicken or turkey -- only wants fishy food. When you said to discontinue the dry food that she is eating, did you mean to try a different dry food? Or no dry food at all? She really loves the Rachel Ray Nutrish, and I thought it would be okay. We get the salmon and brown rice - but I checked the label and do see that it contains corn meal. Is that what is objectionable?

I would be glad to have your suggestions on food, and I will order the other recommendations.

RESPONSE: She does not need to eat turkey but it is a cooler food as is fish. You are lucky she likes fish. I want you to avoid corn in her food if possible or at least get it to a minimum. Try looking look for a dry food without corn. When working with cats they decide what they are willing to eat. Please let us know what you find that she likes.
