Re: [FH] Heart Murmur
- I'm sorry you lost your first kitty so young, and now this scare with your new kitty. Sometimes a heart murmur can be stress related and have nothing to do with heart disease. It would be good if you have a vet who would come to your house, listen to the heart and see if when the kitty is home and not stressed if they hear a murmur.
For the upper respiratory, please get some L-Lysine and give that to your kitty. It comes in capsules filled with powder. Get 500mg capsules and give 1/2 (250mg) twice a day. It will help lessen the severity of the infection and help boost the immune system. I also give my guys colloidal silver when they have URI's, because URI's are usually viral and antibiotics won't help unless there is a secondary bacterial infection, where colloidal silver kills both bacteria and viruses. There is a group called Silverpets on yahoo that you can join to learn more about using CS. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SilverPets/ There is also a human group at http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/4COLLOIDALSILVER/ and the folks there are very knowledgeable.
Definitely get some L-Lysine, and another thing you can give is colostrum. It will strengthen the immune system. The brand that I always buy is Symbiotics Colostrum Plus. I get it at http://www.Vitacost.com We give 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon twice a day on an empty stomach.
The colloidal silver, we give about 5cc (1 tsp) twice to three times a day. You can also nebulize them with colloidal silver. The folks on either the SilverPets or 4Colloidalsilver group can tell you more about nebulizing or email me privately.
