Posted in Cat Liver Disease
Connie was truly devastated when she learned from her vet that Bouncey would never recover from liver disease. Bouncey was very skinny and weak cat. The vet even suggested to put him down.
Connie who lives in upstate New York refused to give up on her 11-year old beloved kitty, and brought him home so he would be surrounded by loving family and familiar home scents. Connie’s husband administered the fluid therapy and the antibiotics that Bouncey needed.
However, Connie, followed her intuition and ordered Milk Thistle from Pet Wellbeing for natural support, and it arrived at her home the day after Bouncey’s last antibiotic dose. Connie slowly started giving the kitty one drop in his food once in the morning, and gradually increased the drops. It didn’t take long to see results. After two weeks Bouncy gained a pound, and then Connie started giving him three drops a day!
Bouncey gained an amazing one and a half pound in just one week, and it was effortless to administer this treatment because the cat loved the bacon flavour of the drops! He is back to his old self, friendly, active and purring all the time now! Even though he is 11 years old, he loves to climb trees, run and chase chipmunks!
