Feline Leukemia Natural Treatment
One refrigerate September evening, a band of boys were walking through Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on their style to their friend’s house.
With approximately a rarely more than half a mile to go, they noticed a kitten had picked up on their attract and was slowly lagging behind, but they didn’t reckon much about it.
Later that dusk when the boys exited their friend’s home they adage a kitten lying on the impetus and walked over to survey it.
The One boy’s Mother came to the scenery and provided some meal and soak after noting the kitten’s uncommonly depleted condition.
It was absolutely delayed and she didn’t sense what to do.
She had an older flagellum and would not manage this sick kitten into their home so it was left outside.
The subsequent morning the kitten idle lay where it had been left.
More snack with a hardly antibiotic meant for persons was offered.
(Note: administering prescribed antibiotics meant for persons can kill an animal and should not be done.
On my arrival to visit with my friend second 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 very sad sight – I twisted down to greet the rarely one and stroked the boon of its skipper with my fingertips while mentally sending a rarely paean up there for him/her.
It was wholly blatant this kitten was painfully ill.
In codicil to being starved, it moreover had a very fusty cold and was wheezing, sneezing and coughing.
Its eyes and nose were caked with dried mucous – one eye was wholly closed shut with the further barely open.
As we were mobile back towards my friend’s accommodation we were discussing what should or could be done.
I fast caught my friend’s drift but in my humour there was completely no style I would even consider bringing this critter home with me, and was briskly words myself out of even entertaining this possibility.
My partner was not the only one with an older cat; I furthermore had one of 15 plus years and would not jeopardize his health.
As I was relaying this truth I heard: “Oh my God Karen, it’s walking.
” I sour my probe to see this seldom tiny device coming towards us and remember logical “uh-oh.
” My partner slowed her pulsation but I did not, and actually conjecture mine quickened.
This kitten seemed to be on a mission! My companion had knack down to prattle to him/her but s/he kept on trotting and seemed to be coming amend for my heels.
My man commented that she could not surmise 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 hardly test, and went out of my system to parade around my vehicle.
Sure enough, this crying seldom entity followed me.
It was a extremely firm creature no question and even tried to befall me into the house.
I had not seen my fellow in totally some situation and we had some catching up to do but this kitten was becoming the major topic.
My person is an learned peeress but tried to claim she was not sure what she should or could do.
In my nature this was not rocket science and one article was certain – the kitten markedly necessary shelter.
I moreover knew what my partner 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 trifling jump house, and every room had a door.
Therefore, my boon overture was to bring the kitten in and isolate it in one of the many idle lodgings so that it could be cared for.
When this failed, I then recommended cranny a vet or an animal save service, which finally bygone this discussion.
As it overripe out, the kitten had its retain expedient that came as no nonplus to me and is exactly what my seldom car test had been all about.
Shortly after dusk, I was ready to leader home and discovered the kitten waiting underneath my vehicle.
As soon as it heard my voice it sprung into action.
I stood looking down at this rarely crying infant who stood looking up at me.
I could halfway hear it begging “please carry me with you.
” Needless to say, the kitten left with me, and it was a profit object too.
Some extraordinary strong weather with flooding moved in final that evening, and this scarcely one would not posses survived had it been left frontage for another night.
On the drive home, I was weighing the options.
Due to the overdue 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 later day brought, as I was not certain s/he would even make it through the night.
I made a easily bed with towels and a blanket, sour the heat up, provided water, some nosh with a hardly Colloidal Silver (natural antibiotic), and tucked the kitten in.
The next morning I walked over to the studio and was not sure what I would find.
As it high out, this infrequently one was stagnant uncommonly much alive.
“She” was very decrepit but furthermore seemed a bite stronger too.
I sat with her and began to gossip to her about her condition.
I told her that I would do what I could to support her.
I came back to my domicile and prepared her breakfast with supplementary colloidal silver added.
As she was eating, I heard coughing and then adage mucous begin to drizzle 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 mixed tests were performed.
About 3 ½ hours and $350.
00 end the collision were in.
The kitten was between 3-4 months old, weighed correct around 3 pounds, had mange, worms, motile pneumonia, herpes, an eye infection, and feline leukemia (FeLV) on blessing of it all.
Bottom file – she was given a few days at most to live.
My spirit sunk on hearing this news.
I stood looking down at this scarcely one who was staring off into space.
I began to imagine about the cipher of zeal she had expended.
She could barely see but willed herself to hike a little more than half a mile and then collapsed on the reason and did not stratagem again until I showed up tardy the sequential afternoon.
It nearly seemed like she was conserving what infrequently firmness was left for my arrival and then she seemed to beg me to bring her with me.
I honestly did not achieve that an animal would fight that hard or march that distance if it was not going to live.
I clear to present her a chance, and try everything I could to aegis her recoup her health.
The vet gave me the brochure with a few bottles of medication and wished me luck.
On the manner home, I spoke with the kitten about her condition and told her that I would do my very first but ultimately it was all up to her.
Aside from the leukemia, the fresh conditions would be fully feasible to nurse but this little one was already sharply depleted and the vet’s appraisal had not offered much hope.
The prime object to come through was to apportion her a strong title that would serve to backing her.
‘Fairmount’ was the contraction for ‘Fair Mountain’.
Mountains are strong and rugged and this seldom 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 later parade so our paths would cross.
The spell mortise and was abstract 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 sense much about the FeLV leukemia virus but learned the gangling factor with the malady is that it causes dire “immunosuppression” – a weakened immune system.
This announcement remarkably indicated supporting and strengthening the immune procedure was crucial.
This meant all common drugs including vaccines should be avoided because this would only generate the negative originate and other reduce the unaffected system.
There were many articles relating to the further traditional homely care therapies but not much in the way of typical treatments.
However, I did find one something concerning the benefits of pureed liver and how cats with the FeLV virus craved the enzymes.
This body was a irradiate bulb moment.
Several years earlier, I had maintained a trifling way as a medicinal cook for a few with various health conditions and well knew the medicinal value of food.
Additionally, I moreover knew of a lady that once had leukemia who was given approximately 6 months to live 25 plus years ago.
Therefore, I glaring to charge all of Fairmount’s symptoms aggressively with repast and herbs, along with some energy healing.
All of which would obtain to be scaled down proportionate to her size/weight.
The later is the blessing phase of Fairmount’s all general treatment.
The photograph above reflects approximately one month of care.
In supplement to constantly asking the religious realms and Fairmount for help, I relied heavily on trusting my intuition (what came through me in the style of thought/feeling) when it came to how to proceed, what to fodder and how much to oversee on any given day.
It is celebrated to missive that even though I conjecture organic full foods are the peak manner to go and all of my animals have been subjected to my beliefs, I have always used the main grade trained food I could locate as a base.
Another factor for consideration is meat byproducts of any kindly along with added preservatives are not behalf for sanitary animals and definitely should not be given to an animal that is ill.
Therefore, my animals were fed fare made by Pet Guard, which is USDA authenticated organic.

Fairmount was given a few days to halt and profit some tenacity before she was given her elite bath with some of my keep personal organic shampoo.
Thereafter, she underwent 4 additional baths for 4 days in a column with one gallon of boiled lemon bedew added to tend the mange.
The bathtub was filled with moderate enough irrigate to canopy her feet and no supplementary than half of her legs.
After the initial 4 baths, she received daily lemon dampen sponge baths in my ambit until the scab and itching was unbefitting subdue (approximately 10 days).
Sulphur 30 C- for skin, mange, and herpes.

Administered as a security for approximately 6 supplementary days once rash was beneath control.
She received daily healing sessions 2x per day – best article in the morning and last something at night.
The initial sessions lasted as long as they did for an adult.
This was not the touchstone because animals usually compel much less corrective energy.
However, Fairmount was at death’s door so I was bright to business for as desire as the zeal continued to moving through me.
Approximately one week after our theraoeutic business began and during one curing session, her object began to totter uncontrollably.
I thought for sure she was dying in my circle and began to pray.
Within a few minutes, she began sneezing and I became extremely concerned.
I placed her on the flag to observe her.
After the sneezing - she stretched, walked over to her food and began to eat.
I continued to observe.
After she perfect eating I asked, “Are you OK?” She walked over to receive some stroking and then went and curled up on her bed.
I sat utterance to her for a while before leaving for the night.
I did not anchor well, as the theraoeutic 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 examination on her – she was dormant alive.
The sequential morning and much to my surprise, she was at the door waiting for me and seemed to keep a mass other energy.
During our healing session, I noticed the wheezing heard and felt in her chest was greatly reduced.
I began to identify the agitated she had ended through the night before was thumping similar to what some of my human clients go through when we gain into deep liberate work.
“The theraoeutic shivers” is the interval I use, and this must retain been what Fairmount went through.
The session the night before had been our turning dot and the walking pneumonia’s hug had been broken.
At this point, I felt much fresh 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 flagellum Asher had been diagnosed with a kernel condition around age 3 that was supposed to lower his life, but he had outlived them all.
He was an amazing scarcely heart who captured the hearts of everyone that ever met him.
I totally adored him and now he was dying.
He wanted and demanded my undivided priority for 4 consecutive days – even monitored my phone case and would roar whenever someone called to let me recognize when their juncture was up.
My visits with Fairmount were further cut thumping brief – I pretty much delivered her victuals and left.
After Asher’s death, I did not scarcity to be around any animals but could not totally ignore Fairmount.
While gunny my loss, it began to happen to me that Asher might have opted to depart so Fairmount could play into our home.
It was cold facade and going back and diffuse to the studio was receipt 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 advantage home for her – HA! The concept of one I greatly loved perhaps opting to drop so this new horsewhip could move into his home benign of pissed me off.
I remember analytical “No practice in hell is she ever mobility in here!” Another HA! – Fairmount moved in 3 days later.
She definitely lifted my spirits with her big personality – it was like she had always been living here and knew the routine.
She quite loved to consign me baths with her sandpaper tongue that bully after about the third pass.
I did my boon to posses myself covered at night but sometimes a foot would pop out from below the covers, and it was a given that it would be bathed if she was anywhere imminent it.
My skipper hair was not the amend twist but my eyebrows were, and I will never forget the best time she discovered them.
A painful scraping response on my eye lid had me opening my eyes one morning to see her front rectify there over mine, which definitely made me jump!
As situation progressed, she became stronger and I began to cut back on some of the supplements and eliminated others when she stopped eating the pureed liver, which indicated she no longer needful 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 conviction and/or wanted, she did not wait.
Her peak season hit in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve.
I did not place she was in heat and impression she was in pain as she screamed the habitat down.
It wasn’t until the subsequent day that I realized she was extraordinary fine.
I had moreover mistakenly believed cats came into season every 6 months so this would be the best and last case I would own to go through this.
Wrong again! In January she came into her latter season and it was then that I sage cats come into season every month.
Needless to say, there be absolutely no way I would live with several days of monthly screaming sessions until the spring.
Our local vet was contacted the successive day.
But he would not spay her without giving her a rabies, and dye shot.
I tried to captivation to his reform mood and explained the special needs of feline leukemia cats and how giving her these shots could front a coagulate back or kill her.
He unmentioned but his level was firm.
We were locked in a stalemate, and he would not kink the rules.
Although, he did suggest I impression the initial hospital where she had been treated because they had not imperative any shots to afafir with her.
However, this hospital suddenly expressed concern about the possibility of rabies, distemper, or some other infectious disease.
Go figure! I reminded them of the actuality they didn’t seem to posses any problems with the treatment and charging a thumping significant symbol of monetary when this infectious “stray” was initially brought into their office.
I also pointed out that incompatible to their death sentence, this stray was stagnant extraordinary much alive, and had not thicken one foot on the motive outside, or come in results with any supplementary animals.
All of my cognitive attempts fell on deaf ears and they refused to spay her without shooting her up with their drugs first.
The second result had me receiving Fairmount to a holistic vet located partly 2 hours away where she would receive the friendly of care she required, but it was not at all cheap.
After the appointment for February was arranged and the approximate fee given, I hung the phone up and sat in shock.
This seldom stray kitty was costing fresh in medical bills than all of my animals and me combined in the last 25 years.
I overripe to see Fairmount in the middle of a bath, and informed her that she top not hold any plans of checking out on that table, and she correct hang around and present me my investment back!
The morning had come and Fairmount was driven to the vet where she remained for 48 hours.
I was a nibble trembling about leaving her but additional so about the procedure.
Coming into season at her general case was a behalf crest and reflected she was healthy.
But waiting to undergo such and invasive practice was definitively my preference.
I was spiritual her system would be supported from administering a ale does of anesthesia to obtaining an acupuncture session directly after she regained consciousness.
Leaving her was hard.
I found myself remaining in reasoning note 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 pronounced with each new term is the vet was falling in love with Fairmount, which had me creed relieved.
When I went to gather her up, she was as happy to see me, as I was to see her.
The vet informed me that all minor conditions had cleared, and she was symptom discharge but had torpid tested positive for feline leukemia.
This was interest facts and tackling the leukemia would become the primary focus now.
The end phase of treatment
In appendix to maintaining the sequential foods, more 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 procedure a halt and stimulates the proof system.
Fairmount would moreover see her vet once every 2 weeks for a tunnel of curing therapy proclaimed as the “JMT Technique,” which she seemed to like very much.
My manoeuvre was to retain her retested for the leukemia in a few months and compare the authentic numbers in the blood assignment to recorder her progress.
Pet Guard – 1/2 can 1 point per day.
Aduki Beans and Juice – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of beans with 1 tablespoon of liquor to assistance and strengthen the kidneys/bladder during toxin release.
Short Grain Brown Rice – 2 to 3 tablespoons to stabilize system, and moreover boost constipation and/or diarrhea.
Fresh Kale- trifling digit slightly blanched and finely chopped.
1 serving per day.
Carrots – derisory digit either grated unprepared or cooked and then finely chopped.
If juiced – 1 tablespoon juice with 1-2 teaspoons of pulp.
1 serving per day.
Fresh Meat – when it comes through to give this to her.
2 times per week
Acidophilus Yogurt – 1 tablespoon.
Vitamin Supplements – 1 situation per day
Liquid Vitamins with lofty 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 – small pinch added to food.
1 time per day.
Powdered Calcium Ascorbate Vitamin C – 250 mg 2 times per week.
More if needed.
Fairmount made it to her vet for 3 curative sessions before she changed things with her have plan.
She developed an hatred to riding in the car and became keenly stressed on our system to the vet for her fourth session.
I had initially concept she would mellow out as we drove but we were half fashion there and she was passive screaming.
I axiom no behalf in receiving her in for a session when nothing further than reducing her quality of attention 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 alert to hazard her health.
I high the car around and brought her home.
To this day, I keep no solution whether the leukemia is inert active, or if it is in remission, or how enthusiasm she entrust live.
What I do perceive from my research is that if a kitten with leukemia survives beyond two years then there is a thumping wellbeing arise they will go on to live a flawless and crave life.
Fairmount has been with me for halfway five years now, and she knows what I deprivation and that I am actually expecting to secure at least twelve years if not more! However, this option is completely up to her.
