Feline Leukemia Natural Treatment
One cool September evening, a bunch of boys were walking through Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on their system to their friend’s house.
With approximately a scarcely further than half a mile to go, they noticed a kitten had picked up on their trail and was slowly lagging behind, but they didn’t imagine much about it.
Later that evening when the boys exited their friend’s home they epigram a kitten lying on the actuation and walked over to examine it.
The One boy’s Mother came to the aspect and provided some meal and moisten after noting the kitten’s uncommonly depleted condition.
It was fairly dilatory and she didn’t perceive what to do.
She had an older flagellum and would not transact this sick kitten into their home so it was left outside.
The next morning the kitten quiescent lay where it had been left.
More snack with a rarely antibiotic meant for tribe was offered.
(Note: administering prescribed antibiotics meant for humans can kill an animal and should not be done.
On my arrival to visit with my companion latter that afternoon, I was told about this kitten and how it could not parade and lay dying in the grass.
We walked over to it, and there in the grass lay some breathing bones covered with fur.
It was a uncommonly unhappy sight – I bowed down to greet the infrequently one and stroked the prime of its skipper with my fingertips while mentally sending a hardly glorification up there for him/her.
It was entirely noted this kitten was markedly ill.
In codicil to being starved, it besides had a very blighted cold and was wheezing, sneezing and coughing.
Its eyes and nose were caked with dried mucous – one eye was totally closed shut with the additional barely open.
As we were ambulatory back towards my friend’s habitat we were discussing what should or could be done.
I rapidly caught my friend’s drift but in my character there was quite no practice I would even consider bringing this critter home with me, and was rapidly utterance myself out of even entertaining this possibility.
My comrade was not the only one with an older cat; I moreover had one of 15 plus years and would not jeopardize his health.
As I was relaying this fact I heard: “Oh my God Karen, it’s walking.
” I tainted my commander to see this hardly tiny article coming towards us and remember cerebral “uh-oh.
” My friend slowed her rhythm but I did not, and actually reckon mine quickened.
This kitten seemed to be on a mission! My comrade had knack down to gossip to him/her but s/he kept on trotting and seemed to be coming right for my heels.
My partner commented that she could not conjecture how this kitten was latching onto me when she had been the one that had fed and given it water.
I laughed and said: “Nice try but that trick won’t work.
” Even though I sensed what was up, I was so hoping this was not the case! I opted to try a scarcely test, and went out of my manner to step around my vehicle.
Sure enough, this crying infrequently entity followed me.
It was a uncommonly firm creature no waver and even tried to chance me into the house.
I had not heuristic my partner in quite some situation and we had some catching up to do but this kitten was becoming the major topic.
My comrade is an sage noblewoman but tried to claim she was not sure what she should or could do.
In my nature this was not rocket science and one object was certain – the kitten decidedly necessary shelter.
I also knew what my comrade was up to and was not buying into any of it – there were several options and none had to include me.
Her mansion was much larger than my trivial hop house, and every room had a door.
Therefore, my elite proposition was to bear the kitten in and isolate it in one of the many lazy cantonment so that it could be cared for.
When this failed, I then recommended place a vet or an animal reclamation service, which finally gone this discussion.
As it gamy out, the kitten had its hold stratagem that came as no confound to me and is exactly what my seldom car test had been all about.
Shortly after dusk, I was ready to commander home and discovered the kitten waiting under my vehicle.
As soon as it heard my voice it sprung into action.
I stood looking down at this seldom crying kid who stood looking up at me.
I could partly hear it begging “please bear me with you.
” Needless to say, the kitten left with me, and it was a interest entity too.
Some extremely strong weather with flooding moved in latter that evening, and this infrequently one would not own survived had it been left front for another night.
On the drive home, I was weighing the options.
Due to the dilatory hour, it was a given this kitten would be spending at least one night with me, but not in my paltry house.
There were no doors and there was no room that could be used for isolation.
Therefore, the kitten would stay in another building located on the property and we would see what the successive day brought, as I was not certain s/he would even make it through the night.
I made a tender bed with towels and a blanket, high the heat up, provided water, some sustenance with a seldom Colloidal Silver (natural antibiotic), and tucked the kitten in.
The later morning I walked over to the studio and was not sure what I would find.
As it high out, this seldom one was dormant extremely much alive.
“She” was extraordinary frail but moreover seemed a mouthful stronger too.
I sat with her and began to talk to her about her condition.
I told her that I would do what I could to assistance her.
I came back to my dwelling and prepared her breakfast with more colloidal silver added.
As she was eating, I heard coughing and then aphorism mucous begin to lavish from her eyes and nose.
She was in trouble, and I was in over my head, and took her to a local animal hospital immediately.
Fluids for dehydration were administered right away and then diverse tests were performed.
About 3 ½ hours and $350.
00 end the results were in.
The kitten was between 3-4 months old, weighed amend around 3 pounds, had mange, worms, animated pneumonia, herpes, an eye infection, and feline leukemia (FeLV) on top of it all.
Bottom line – she was given a few days at most to live.
My soul sunk on hearing this news.
I stood looking down at this seldom one who was staring off into space.
I began to conjecture about the numeral of enthusiasm she had expended.
She could barely see but willed herself to walk a infrequently further than half a mile and then collapsed on the instigation and did not machination again until I showed up tardy the following afternoon.
It nearly seemed like she was conserving what scarcely tenacity was left for my arrival and then she seemed to beg me to bear her with me.
I honestly did not attain that an animal would fight that laborious or step that grasp if it was not going to live.
I noted to allot her a chance, and try everything I could to aegis her indemnify her health.
The vet gave me the circular with a few bottles of medication and wished me luck.
On the system home, I spoke with the kitten about her condition and told her that I would do my extraordinary top but ultimately it was all up to her.
Aside from the leukemia, the fresh conditions would be absolutely viable to promote but this little one was already sharply depleted and the vet’s examination had not offered much hope.
The boon entity to come through was to allot her a strong spell that would serve to support her.
‘Fairmount’ was the contraction for ‘Fair Mountain’.
Mountains are strong and rugged and this rarely one definitely could use some fairness.
Additionally, Fairmount Park is where she had lived, and it seemed as if this Fair Mountain had given her the tenacity to make one modern step so our paths would cross.
The title unite and was steal for her to carry.
Once we were home, Fairmount was taken to her room and I hit the computer to begin researching.
I didn’t recognize much about the FeLV leukemia virus but wise the big factor with the indisposition is that it causes desperate “immunosuppression” – a weakened resistant system.
This information decidedly indicated supporting and strengthening the immune system was crucial.
This meant all natural drugs including vaccines should be avoided because this would only originate the opposite cause and additional deteriorate the resistant system.
There were many articles relating to the fresh traditional maid care therapies but not much in the practice of general treatments.
However, I did find one entity concerning the benefits of pureed liver and how cats with the FeLV virus craved the enzymes.
This thing was a decorate bulb moment.
Several years earlier, I had maintained a minor fashion as a medicinal cook for a few with varying health conditions and well knew the medicinal value of food.
Additionally, I further knew of a countess that once had leukemia who was given approximately 6 months to live 25 plus years ago.
Therefore, I decided to charge all of Fairmount’s symptoms aggressively with repast and herbs, along with some easgerness healing.
All of which would hold to be scaled down proportionate to her size/weight.
The following is the boon phase of Fairmount’s all standard treatment.
The photograph above reflects approximately one month of care.
In addendum to constantly asking the hallowed realms and Fairmount for help, I relied heavily on trusting my intuition (what came through me in the practice of thought/feeling) when it came to how to proceed, what to hay and how much to operate on any given day.
It is esteemed to communication that even though I believe organic absolute foods are the peak method to go and all of my animals retain been subjected to my beliefs, I obtain always used the leading quality tame fare I could discover as a base.
Another factor for consideration is meat byproducts of any generous along with added preservatives are not interest for antiseptic animals and definitely should not be given to an animal that is ill.
Therefore, my animals were fed snack made by Pet Guard, which is USDA authenticated organic.

Fairmount was given a few days to delay and interest some power before she was given her prime bath with some of my hold personal organic shampoo.
Thereafter, she underwent 4 more baths for 4 days in a sequence with one gallon of boiled lemon bedew added to treat the mange.
The bathtub was filled with moderate enough irrigate to canopy her feet and no additional than half of her legs.
After the initial 4 baths, she received daily lemon soak sponge baths in my compass until the eruption and itching was unbefitting domesticate (approximately 10 days).
Sulphur 30 C- for skin, mange, and herpes.

3-4 pellets 3 times per day for approximately 5 days.

Sulphur 6x (animal strength) – 3 pellets 1 juncture per day.
Administered as a precaution for approximately 6 further days once itch was beneath control.
She received daily curing sessions 2x per day – top thing in the morning and last article at night.
The initial sessions lasted as enthusiasm as they did for an adult.
This was not the criterion because animals usually require much less theraoeutic energy.
However, Fairmount was at death’s door so I was open to activity for as inclination as the liveliness continued to moving through me.
Approximately one week after our curing undertaking began and during one corrective session, her phenomenon began to teeter uncontrollably.
I opinion for sure she was dying in my circuit and began to pray.
Within a few minutes, she began sneezing and I became uncommonly concerned.
I placed her on the tar to observe her.
After the sneezing - she stretched, walked over to her food and began to eat.
I continued to observe.
After she complete eating I asked, “Are you OK?” She walked over to receive some stroking and then went and curled up on her bed.
I sat conversation to her for a while before leaving for the night.
I did not sleep well, as the healing session played out over and over in my mind.
After tossing and turning for a few hours, I bundled up and walked over to the studio to evaluation on her – she was still alive.
The subsequent morning and much to my surprise, she was at the door waiting for me and seemed to obtain a mound more energy.
During our salutary session, I noticed the wheezing heard and felt in her chest was greatly reduced.
I began to place the nervy she had preceding through the night before was extremely similar to what some of my human clients go through when we obtain into deep unchain work.
“The curative shivers” is the name I use, and this must keep been what Fairmount went through.
The session the night before had been our turning atom and the ambulatory pneumonia’s squeeze had been broken.
At this point, I felt much additional confidant and knew we were on the road to recovery.
After about 6 weeks of treatment, the last of my 3 animal companions of 15 plus years suddenly became ill.
My cat Asher had been diagnosed with a gist condition around age 3 that was supposed to cut his life, but he had outlived them all.
He was an amazing rarely heart who captured the hearts of everyone that ever met him.
I fairly adored him and now he was dying.
He wanted and demanded my undivided urgency for 4 consecutive days – even monitored my phone juncture and would howl whenever someone called to agreement me understand when their time was up.
My visits with Fairmount were moreover score extremely succinct – I pretty much delivered her fare and left.
After Asher’s death, I did not privation to be around any animals but could not totally ignore Fairmount.
While burlap my loss, it began to materialize to me that Asher might have opted to depart so Fairmount could move into our home.
It was cold frontage and going back and disperse to the studio was taking a toll.
However, I had no plans of keeping this kitten.
My only intention was to offices her redeem her health and then locate a behalf home for her – HA! The belief of one I greatly loved possibly opting to quit so this new cat could play into his home genial of pissed me off.
I remember analytical “No system in hell is she ever motion in here!” Another HA! – Fairmount moved in 3 days later.
She definitely lifted my spirits with her immense individuality – it was like she had always been living here and knew the routine.
She fairly loved to grant me baths with her sandpaper tongue that misuse after about the third pass.
I did my elite to keep myself covered at night but sometimes a foot would pop out from under the covers, and it was a given that it would be bathed if she was anywhere brewing it.
My head hair was not the correct length but my eyebrows were, and I consign never forget the elite occasion she discovered them.
A painful scraping feeling on my eye lid had me fracture my eyes one morning to see her front correct there over mine, which definitely made me jump!
As time progressed, she became stronger and I began to dent back on some of the supplements and eliminated others when she stopped eating the pureed liver, which indicated she no longer imperative to be bombarded.
After an approximate age was determined and given her depleted state, I had initially believed she probably would not come into season around the average 6 months of age.
Wrong! Contrary to what I thought and/or wanted, she did not wait.
Her best season hit in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve.
I did not know she was in heat and belief she was in pain as she screamed the quarters down.
It wasn’t until the sequential day that I realized she was remarkably fine.
I had moreover mistakenly believed cats came into season every 6 months so this would be the blessing and last circumstance I would have to go through this.
Wrong again! In January she came into her latter season and it was then that I judicious cats come into season every month.
Needless to say, there be completely no style I would live with several days of monthly screaming sessions until the spring.
Our local vet was contacted the following day.
But he would not spay her without giving her a rabies, and whitewash shot.
I tried to allure to his improve temperament and explained the special needs of feline leukemia cats and how giving her these shots could surpass a congeal back or kill her.
He understood but his rank was firm.
We were locked in a stalemate, and he would not corkscrew the rules.
Although, he did suggest I contact the initial hospital where she had been treated because they had not needed any shots to task with her.
However, this hospital suddenly expressed concern about the option of rabies, distemper, or some supplementary infectious disease.
Go figure! I reminded them of the fact they didn’t seem to obtain any problems with the treatment and charging a uncommonly significant character of monetary when this infectious “stray” was initially brought into their office.
I furthermore pointed out that clashing to their death sentence, this stray was quiescent extraordinary much alive, and had not coagulate one foot on the motive outside, or come in contact with any additional animals.
All of my logical attempts fell on deaf ears and they refused to spay her without shooting her up with their drugs first.
The modern result had me taking Fairmount to a holistic vet located almost 2 hours away where she would receive the amiable of care she required, but it was not at all cheap.
After the appointment for February was arranged and the approximate remuneration given, I hung the phone up and sat in shock.
This little stray kitty was costing further in medical bills than all of my animals and me combined in the last 25 years.
I tainted to see Fairmount in the middle of a bath, and informed her that she boon not have any plans of checking out on that table, and she improve hang around and bestow me my investment back!
The morning had come and Fairmount was driven to the vet where she remained for 48 hours.
I was a segment agitated about leaving her but further so about the procedure.
Coming into season at her general point was a sake sign and reflected she was healthy.
But waiting to undergo such and invasive system was definitively my preference.
I was buoyant her means would be supported from administering a bitter does of anesthesia to getting an acupuncture session directly after she regained consciousness.
Leaving her was hard.
I found myself remaining in reasoning missive to assure her I would be returning along with telling her she had to stay strong.
The vet provided constant updates before, during, and after the procedure.
What was becoming glaring with each new denominate is the vet was falling in passion with Fairmount, which had me creed relieved.
When I went to collect her up, she was as jocose to see me, as I was to see her.
The vet informed me that all inferior conditions had cleared, and she was symptom unshackle but had quiescent tested positive for feline leukemia.
This was profit information and tackling the leukemia would become the primary fulcrum now.
The modern phase of treatment
In appendage to maintaining the next foods, additional supplements suggested by her vet were included.
Her feeding was reduced to once per day with one to two days of fasting each week.
Fasting gives the practice a stop and stimulates the resistant system.
Fairmount would further see her vet once every 2 weeks for a tunnel of salutary therapy admitted as the “JMT Technique,” which she seemed to like thumping much.
My stratagem was to obtain her retested for the leukemia in a few months and compare the veritable numbers in the blood job to watchdog her progress.
Pet Guard – 1/2 can 1 juncture per day.
Aduki Beans and Juice – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of beans with 1 tablespoon of secretion to help and strengthen the kidneys/bladder during toxin release.
Short Grain Brown Rice – 2 to 3 tablespoons to stabilize system, and further encourage constipation and/or diarrhea.
Fresh Kale- trivial symbol slightly blanched and finely chopped.
1 serving per day.
Carrots – meagre symbol either grated green or cooked and then finely chopped.
If juiced – 1 tablespoon serum with 1-2 teaspoons of pulp.
1 serving per day.
Fresh Meat – when it comes through to apportion this to her.
2 times per week
Acidophilus Yogurt – 1 tablespoon.
Vitamin Supplements – 1 point per day
Liquid Vitamins with gigantic vitamin “A” content.
Co-Q 10 – 1/3 of 30 mg capsule.
Acetylator – 1/2 capsule.
ProZyme Natural Enzyme -1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per day.
Scan – derisory pinch added to food.
1 situation per day.
Powdered Calcium Ascorbate Vitamin C – 250 mg 2 times per week.
More if needed.
Fairmount made it to her vet for 3 curing sessions before she changed things with her keep plan.
She developed an disgust to riding in the car and became acutely strained on our style to the vet for her fourth session.
I had initially concept she would mellow out as we drove but we were half procedure there and she was torpid screaming.
I saw no interest in getting her in for a session when nothing supplementary than reducing her standard of accent would be accomplished, which would be canceled out on the drive home.
Not to mention, urgency is a major trigger for this disease, and I was not bright to hazard her health.
I sour the car around and brought her home.
To this day, I have no interpretation whether the leukemia is quiescent active, or if it is in remission, or how wanting she consign live.
What I do understand from my research is that if a kitten with leukemia survives beyond two years then there is a extremely interest follow they bequeath go on to live a entire and long life.
Fairmount has been with me for halfway five years now, and she knows what I scarcity and that I am actually expecting to gain at least twelve years if not more! However, this option is completely up to her.
