Ask the Veterinarian/Lethargic Cat After Vaccination 2


I just email you about my cat and I made a mistake on the dripping from rectum. The dripping is from the pee. His urine is mix with blood, though he hasn't really peed in almost a day.

I did just send you a response. Often vaccine reactions, in my holistic experience, trigger bladder infections, especially if there have been any in the past.

So forget about my wondering if there was string or something that he ate.
Your immediate concern that would have you go to an emergency clinic this weekend would be if you see no urine coming out at all. Put a white paper towel (all white) or white cloth or napkin on the bottom of the litter box and record every time you see urine there, even a few drops. If a male cat gets blocked they will vomit and be lethargic and can die.

I am so sorry I was ill and not able to answer you sooner. I hope he started to urinate or that you did take him to a vet clinic.

Now, follow my other suggestions and find an integrative vet with whom to work for maximum health in the future. With conventional care only, these bladder problems often recur.

Instead of my suggestions for the diarrhea, if he is urinating, even a little, try these:
1. Reiki - same as before.
2. Rescue remedy - same as before.
3. Give 250 mg vitamin C twice a day unless he vomits more. if he is vomiting he needs to go straight to a vet clinic.

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.
