His owner says he is now finally tolerates his food better than ever and his energy levels continue to be amazing. He is a lot more active than he was the last couple of years.
Mr Glenny is a very handsome 12 year old male castrated tabby cat who presented with renal/kidney disease and ongoing constipation.
He has had a long history of digestive issues (over many years), abdominal cramps, severe difficulty and pain around passing stools (about 2-3 years duration) furballs and in recent months he started developing early renal/kidney disease.
His owner had experimented with many different diets with no change in his general well-being.
When I first started working with Glenny his diet was a non-processed raw diet, but he still vomited and had digestive issues including constipation on this. Over time we have worked with a diet that suited Glenny’s needs and he is now on a home-made non-processed diet which he loves eating and supports him well. It is important that home-made diets are balanced and advice from a professional is required if this is undertaken.
To aid his constipation maintenance CatLax (oral laxative) and lactulose was given as needed, but he did react to these conventional products, presenting with abdominal discomfort. He also had to have enemas to help relieve his constipation problems.
He was prescribed a herbal treatment which supported his kidneys, helped to prevent anaemia, constipation and continued disease progression. A Heel Remedy – utilising a modality known as homo-toxicology was made for him to support the abdominal discomfort, mild osteoarthritis, kidney disease and constipation. Probiotics, Omega 3’s, Vitamins, Fibre and Slippery Elm were introduced. He was also put on a phosphorus binder to help support his kidneys. A prebiotic was also put into his water to help with the gingivitis. Ozone gel was used to support his sore bottom.
His normal signs of aging have improved, the stomach cramps have resolved and he is now passing his stool regularly and comfortably. He no longer needs laxatives and enemas.
His gums are looking healthier and it will be interesting to retest his kidney profiles as his owner feels that his kidney disease appears to have also improved as he is urinating less frequently.
Most importantly his vitality and general well-being have returned, he meows and chats to his owner throughout the day working his magic.
