Alternative medicine for pets is becoming more popular as pet parents are discovering the long term health benefits alternative medicine has to offer their furry companions. Just like people cats also suffer from skin problems, cancer, diabetes, kidney failure, arthritis and many other chronic ailments. Unlike traditional medicine that uses drugs and chemicals to treat illness and disease, alternative medicine provides natural treatment that is not chemical or drug based which naturally does not have any harsh side effects. The Cat Hospital of Chicago located at 2851 W. Irving Park Rd is now offering acupuncture and therapy laser treatment for cats.
It is becoming evident that cats who are not over-vaccinated and fed a grain free natural high protein diet are living healthier and longer lives. This could be because a cat's immune system just like the human immune system was designed to benefit from and absorb everything that is natural. Natural medicine for felines not only treats the disease the cat is suffering from, it also treats the body, mind and spirit of the cat resulting in added strength and energy.
Cats are obligate carnivores which means they were not designed to eat vegetables and cannot survive on a vegetarian diet, however cats do benefit greatly from natural herbal supplements that can be added to their food, preferably organic wet food, as cats have a low thirst drive and are designed to get their water from prey or food. Cat acupuncture and homeopathy are two of the most common alternative treatments for cats as well as chiropractic, nutritional and herbal therapy. For more information about alternative medicine for cats please contact the Royal Treatment Veterinary Center located at 4130 N. Rockwell in Chicago.
