Most Cat Ailments Are Caused By a Toxic Overload

Cat ailments are on the increase. Why should this be the case? After all many cat people do what they consider to be all the right things to do. They vaccinate their cat every year. They feed their cat the most expensive brand of processed cat food recommended by their vet. They use the recommended flea and worm control.

What more can they do?

Last week, a distressed family brought their rabbit to me. They had used the flea preparation Frontline. Frontline is not recommended for use on rabbits and the rabbit was now having seizures.

I did a quick search on the internet to see what ingredients Frontline had. I was shocked, but not surprised, to see that cyanide was one. And yet Frontline is considered to be low in toxicity. Even WHO approves it.

This begs a very big question to me. Can you trust others with the health of your cat? If you use Frontline, is it acceptable to you to be putting cyanide into her system?

So next, I searched for the ingredients of Advantage, another popular cat flea control preparation. Advantage contains imidacloprid, which is a neuro active insecticide. That means it affects the neurological system. The nerves. So seizures would not be an impossible side effect for this one, either.

Imidacloprid causes thyroid problems in rats. It’s not a million mile jump to conclude it could also cause thyroid problems in those animals who are treated with it.

And yet, it’s the easiest thing in the world to control fleas naturally. The reason for fleas is because of the pH of your cat’s skin. A processed diet is not healthy, is not in line with their evolutionary history. It alters the chemistry of your cat’s body. Fleas love the skin of a cat fed processed food.

A raw meat and bones diet, on the other hand, keeps the cat’s pH in perfect balance. Fleas are no longer attracted to the skin. And resolves a host of other cat ailments.

If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself. You’ll need to try for about a month, perhaps two depending on the age and health of your cat.

Isn’t it better to find the cause of the problem and deal with that, rather than treating the effect?

Sadly the rabbit didn’t survive. But the family had a huge learning experience.
