This page provides additional information as to why cat diarrhea and other GI disorders are affecting millions of cats each year. There are 5 basic causes of GI disorders and immune diseases. The sooner you take a proactive position regarding them, the greater the likelihood your cat will be healthier and happier and live a full, disease-free life.
“Fully 90% of all chronic diseases are caused by
an unhealthy intestinal system.”
Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain
Common causes of unhealthy intestinal system
Weaned too soon Most store bought kittens and puppies come from very large breeders. Frequently, they are weaned too soon. Mothers milk is essential to establishing a powerful immune system. If your kitten was not allowed to fully nurse it may appear healthy when you buy it, but preemptive weaning is a primary suspect of disorders and diseases later in life, that seem to have no known cause.
Improper diet Domestication and convenience has removed your cats natural diet.
You would think you could rely on cat food manufacturers to make sure the ingredients in cat foods are beneficial and nutritious. Think again!
In the wild, cats do not eat grains, or heavily processed low quality overcooked meats, or meats containing injected hormones and antibiotics, or farm raised fish, which were fed who knows what. Yet, these are among the primary ingredients in most commercial cat foods. It might surprise you to know that many commercial cat food manufacturers actually spray dry foods with rancid, recycled restaurant cooking oils, just to give them some flavor!
If kitty gets hungry enough, he/she will pick at them, maybe even eat them, but at what ultimate cost? Today, a virtual epidemic of GI related health issues ranging from picky eaters, eating disorders, vomiting, loose stools, diarrhea, IBS, spastic colon, to constipation can be traced directly to commercial cat food! According to industry statistics, diarrhea is the number 3 reason people are taking their animals to the vet.
Your cats wild relatives eat fresh kill, and supplement this by eating microflora and microorganisms from vibrant chemical-free grasses and soils. Collectively they are called soil based organisms (SBOs).
The closer you come to duplicating your cats natural diet the sooner it will get healthy and stay healthy. You can substitute fresh kill with high quality (antibiotic and hormone free) raw or lightly cooked meats, chicken, and fish.
Due to decades of chemical treatments, it is no longer advisable to let your pet eat grass and dirt. Yet they need SBOs more than ever! Pet Flora consists of 29 active SBOs* scientifically formulated to provide your cat with these much needed supplements.
Your cat also needs digestive enzymes to assist in the breakdown and processing of the protein. Super Pet Enzymes was carefully formulated with your cats digestive needs in mind.
Chlorinated drinking water No one should drink chlorinated water. Not only does it contain amounts of chlorine comparable to swimming pools, ammonia is also added to act as a buffer. Give you cat filtered water, free from chemical residues. Make sure to replenish it twice a day.
Household Cleaning Agents People dont realize that the more convenient the cleaning agents, the more likely they contain toxic chemicals. You pets are getting full whiffs. Additionally, if you pet is lying on the flooring, it is absorbing these chemicals through its skin and paws. Its time to get back to basics. Gallon jugs of concentrated hydrogen peroxide can be purchased from most beauty supplies. Dilute it o 3% and use it to clean floors, countertops, faucets, drinking and food bowls.
Stress is another cause of diarrhea. Cats prefer peace and quite to yelling or screaming. Travel also stresses cats, as it often means leaving familiar territory, beyond which are unfamiliar noises, different air quality, humidity, water, even food- any one of which can throw off your cats now delicate GI balance.
