Dear Dr. Christina,

We adopted a kitten with an eye infection 2 weeks ago and attached is the picture of his eyes.

I'm applying colloidal silver, honey and honey + black tea as eye drops and apple cider vinegar on the scruff of his neck.

And recently I am also feeding him diatomaceous earth and 1000 mg of L-Lysine daily.

Otherwise, thankfully he's healthy and eating well (on wholesome raw meat diet).

I would really appreciate your kind assistance if you could let me know his diagnosis and treatment for it.

Thanks in advance for your time.

You are doing a wonderful job of holistically treating theses eyes. These viral eye problems can be almost impossible to cure, so you need to continue to explore all non drug options. Drugs do not help either.

Not sure why apple cider vinegar on scruff - give internally in food. I do not think De will help, but Lysine is critical.

Raw meat diet is critical as well - be sure he is eating bones, too, to balance the meat. And organ meat, etc.

Next you need to move into deeper energetic/vibrational healing:
1. Local Malaysian healing techniques (which I do not know) - shaman, herbal, acupuncture, prayers, etc.
2. Reiki - you can be attuned from afar if nothing local (see below) and you can get treatments from afar.
3. Herbal - need to do things one at a time to see if any side effects - can try eccinachea, golden seal,  eyebright - internally.
4. Try to find a local vet who does acupuncture or homeopathy. or do homeopathy with one by phone or email -
5. Keep persisting.
6.Keep paying attention to energy, emotional state, appetite. As long as those as good keep trying. If they slip - stop the last thing you tried as it may be causing a problem - even if the eyes are better. Clear?

From the book, Healthy Animal's Journal - "Reiki: Personally, I think every person who lives with or works with animals must know at least Level I Reiki. The practitioner places her hands upon the animal (or it can be done from a distance, even around the world) with the intent for healing to occur. The energy flows through the healer into the animal. This is based on directly applying Chi (energy) to rebalance the energy field so it no longer needs to produce the physical symptoms. It is a very good adjunct to any healing modality, especially to relieve pain and inflammation. I have seen cats who begin to eat again when their food has Reiki done on the food. It also "takes the bad out of" things. By doing Reiki on smelly water in restaurants I have been able to drink sweet tasting and smelling water. Use Reiki anytime that you must give injections, vaccines, drugs, flea or heartworm drugs, or other substances with potential toxicity. Do you work in a grooming salon, or kennel, or veterinary clinic, or barn or anywhere animals are being seen? Use your Reiki on any treatments to be given and to calm the animals. People have reported getting animals to eat by doing Reiki on their food.  .  is a great practitioner in Maryland who knows a lot about cats.

I can give you the holistic approach to any problem, mostly for dogs and cats and some farm animals and horses. Depending on the condition and the type of animal, I will be able to give very specific treatment suggestions such as what flower essences, homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplements, diet changes, lifestyle changes or herbs that may be helpful - not drugs. I can also suggest where you can go for further education or to find a specialist in a specific holistic field. I can help you understand why your animal is ill and what improvements can be expected. I do not check messages more than every one to two days, so PLEASE DO NOT ask about EMERGENCIES - call your local veterinarian. I cannot diagnose your animal. I cannot prescribe specific treatments. I am no longer very current with conventional treatments, so cannot answer questions on those. I am not an expert on birds or small critters. I am not an expert in breeding, birthing or babies.


I graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1980 and began using homeopathy in my practice after a client introduced me to it. By 1988 I was using exclusively holistic treatments. I began lecturing in 1987 and have spoken at veterinary conferences, health food stores, people's homes, churches, veterinary college conferences - anywhere people want to learn more about keeping their animals healthy.
