Urinary Blockage in Cats

Homeopathy to the Rescue

If your cat has this condition there is inflammation in the lining of the urethra and it's associated tissues. This problem increases mucus production. The swelling causes narrowing to the opening which makes it more susceptible to obstruction by a mix of mucus and sediment. Treatment at this point is directed toward the inflammation and swelling. Sometimes if the inflammation is brought under control it is enough to allow the obstruction to pass through. In males, massaging the penis may hasten in aiding the release of the plug.

Homeopathic Remedies for Urethral Obstruction

Aconitum Napellus (Monkshood) 30c — Indicated for conditions of intense inflammation and pain. In an Aconitum state the cat typically is very anxious and shows great fear. Homeopathically a dose would be given every 10 minutes for three doses to bring relief. If no response is seen consider the following remedy.

Apis Mellifica (honey-Bee) 30c — This remedy picture is of a cat who is constantly urging in attempt to urinate because of the intense swelling inside the urethra. With all the cat's effort he is hardly able to release one drop. Pain and anguish ensues. Example: 1 dose every 10 minutes for 3 doses. If this doesn't correct the problem consider the following remedy suggestion.

Coccus cacti (Cochineal) 30c — This remedy is indicated when there is excess mucus, sediment and protein debris. The same dosage schedule applies: 1 dose every 10 minutes for 3 doses.

This is life threatening emergency situation.  If the blockage persists for even just a day or two, toxins can build up in the system and the cat could die. Any treatment should be monitored professionally by a veterinarian.
