|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||20%|
[YEA] The first time my 2yo male cat had cystitis symptoms, I gave him Cranberry standardized vegetarian vcaps which are a powder so I gave him 1/4 of the capsule 3x a day (about 100 mg each feeding by mouth or in food) and that cured him in a few days. Many months later/the next time he had the symptoms, I was worried that the cranberrry wasn't working fast enough so I gave him 1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar in food 2x a day, I brushed him for about ten minutes 2x a day and each time the brushing pressure on his sides and his relaxed state helped release some urine drops and then a spray! And i also gently manipulated/rubbed his tummy and sides, I gave him 250mg vitamin c in a vcap by mouth followed by a couple (large size dropper) of water only once a day for the 2nd and 3rd day. I didn't want to give him too much all at once but the water is very important and if he urinated some its ok to give more water.. I realized that giving him the same canned food just made him get worse so I bought the frozen raw chicken patties in a bag (natures variety) and I added a little distilled water that I heated to it and he was getting much better for the next few days very good and peeing more, and still good now about 5 days. I believe he had a bladder infection/inflammation so the cranberry and acv helped clear it up. I won't feed dry food at all to him. He is happy now. I am happy now. and I will keep feeding him the raw diet and I'm looking to make my own raw diet from scratch.
