Pancreatitis In Cats Treatment
Has your cat been diagnosed with pancreatitis? If so, there is so much you can do to help your cat feel better with a natural holistic approach. Pancreatitis in cats occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed. Inflammation usually affects the digestive enzymes of the pancreas. There are two forms of pancreatitis – acute and chronic. Symptoms of pancreatitis in cats include loss of appetite, fever, weight loss, dehydration, fatigue, depression, abdominal pain and increased heart rate.
Chronic Pancreatitis in Cats
Of the two types, chronic pancreatitis in cats is more common. This is a long-term disease in which the pancreas can have flare-ups. One of the key causes of flare-ups is your cat's diet. Most pet foods contain fillers such as corn, wheat, rice and legumes that can cause inflammation over time. Dietary management and a few natural supplements can be life-changing for your cat. The goal of the holistic treatment is to use digestive enzymes that break down the protein and fats, making it easier for your cat to digest food. This takes the burden off the pancreas and helps your cat feel more comfortable. Avoiding chemicals, fillers and food allergens can also make a tremendous difference. Many pet owners are not aware that the "premium" food they are feeding is actually contributing to their cat's condition.
“For 2 years now I have been giving Teesha various natural remedies for
pancreatitis, including from vets. but he didn't start making significant
progress until I gave him the AskAriel Pancreatitis Kit. a couple of months ago. He now
eats on his own again, and only vomits occasionally a small amount of
liquid and for the first time since his illness, I saw him grooming himself
a little. He will be 15 years old this year. Thank you AskAriel for your
dedication to providing the best possible natural pet remedies.” Jane Y, AZ
Causes of Pancreatitis in Cats
Upwards of 90% of pancreatitis cases have no known cause. The condition is common in cats. However, doctors have found a few things linked to the development of pancreatitis in cats:
Diet also has a huge impact on a cat’s chances of getting pancreatitis, as do genetics. Siamese cats have been shown to have a predisposition for developing the disease.
Symptoms of pancreatitis in cats vary from those found in dogs, and they include lethargy, loss of appetite, dehydration, low body temperature and increased respiratory rate.
Natural Feline Pancreatitis Treatment: How To Treat Pancreatitis in Cats at Home
Cats require both short-term and long-term treatment for pancreatitis. Short-term, fluid therapy will be needed. Food may need to be withheld for up to 48 hours if the cat is vomiting. Your veterinarian may also prescribe corticosteroids and metronidazole for chronic pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis can lead to kidney failure, respiratory failure or death. Treatment of acute pancreatitis should include plasma administration.
For long-term management of pancreatitis, cats need to eat a reduced-fat, anti-inflammatory diet free of grains. Also, using specific digestive enzymes for cats with pancreatitis is essential. Below you’ll find supplements that we have found to be effective in treating pancreatitis in cats naturally.
Cats with pancreatitis can be finicky eaters, so it's important to use supplements that are tasteless and easy to administer.
Lypozyme for Pets is a powerful yet easy-to-administer powdered natural enzyme that can be mixed into food. It is veterinary-approved and has a stronger potency and purity than digestive enzymes purchased at a pet store. Cats will generally eat it readily as it has minimal taste and odor. Why are digestive enzymes necessary? Pets with pancreatitis need an enzyme specially formulated to help them break down fats and protein. This takes the workload off the pancreas and digestive system. It’s safe, natural, made with no fillers and made in the USA.
Power Probiotic - LypoZyme works best when used in conjunction with Power Probiotic. Power Probiotic is the best probiotic for pets. Backed by scientific research, this powerful multi-strain supplement promotes the growth of friendly bacteria that are essential to a healthy digestive system. Power Probiotic helps relieve discomfort associated with pancreatitis and is critical to use if your pet has taken antibiotics and steroids. Most cats love the taste too (please click on the link to view video of a cat scarfing down Power Probiotic).
Since the liver and intestinal tract are integrally related to the health of the pancreas, using the Liver & Gallbladder Supplement will help your kitty's pancreatic function and overall health. The Liver & Gallbladder support contains herbs that will be more noticeable to your cat. You may have to administer this product with a syringe after mixing the powder with water. If your cat is not feeling well, then start with the LypoZyme and Power Probiotic first and introduce the Liver & Gallbladder formula once your cat starts to feel better.
Pets with pancreatitis get the best results using our Pancreatitis and Liver Support Kit. The products are all gentle formulas that work synergistically to help reduce inflammation, improve your pet's digestion and improve the symptoms of pancreatitis. Many pets with pancreatitis are in pain and don't want to eat. After eating, they experience discomfort, noises in the abdomen, the desire to eat grass and lethargy. Using the Pancreatitis Kit, combined with a natural pancreatitis diet, gives your pet fast relief. Why are digestive enzymes necessary? Pets with pancreatitis need an enzyme specially formulated to help them break down fats and protein. This takes the workload off the pancreas and digestive system. Combined with the Power Probiotic and Liver & Gallbladder support, there is less toxic buildup, reduced inflammation and improved digestion. It is poor digestion, especially of fats, that contributes to your kitty's discomfort.
Please include your cat's diet on the order form at checkout. Diet changes are an integral part of improving your cat's condition and helping to prevent future flare-ups of pancreatitis. Our nutritionist will review your cat's health issues and diet and include a few diet tips on the packing slip that comes with the product directions.
“Our cat Oliver was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was hospitalized.
He was very listless and didn't want to eat. We were so worried about
him. It is very hard to give him medicine but I was SO glad the
pills were so small and it was easy to give to him. I opened the
capsules and mixed them with the Power Probiotic (which he liked the
taste of) in his canned food. It really seemed to help his appetite and
gave us our kitty back. He hasn't had another flareup since. Thank
you!" Lynette, Los Angeles
