First, you are not alone. Approximately 50% of all cats over the age 10 have some form of cancer, or other chronic illness. That statistic should have set off alarms in the AVMA a long time ago! I have written numerous articles on the cause of cat illness, including feline leukemia. Most likely, the cause is in your home; it can be quickly identified and removed. But in the meantime
GI Lymphoma in cats is often associated with inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD. IBD in cats is a group of gastrointestinal disorders that lead to an increase in the number of inflammatory cells found in the lining of the intestinal tract. Chronic vomiting and or diarrhea are the most common symptoms; at the time of diagnosis, the exact cause is often unknown. Unresolved food allergies and food sensitivities contribute to immune system dysfunction,
The increases in inflammatory cells that develop as a result of IBD have been directly linked to the development of GI lymphoma in cats. Chronic vomiting or diarrhea frequently go unnoticed, and at some point the resulting inflammation and scar tissue that develops in the lining of the intestine can transition to cancerous cells, leading to the development of lymphoma.
The holistic (natural) approach uses all-natural supplements to fortify the immune system. Vitality Science is a pioneer in the field of alternative therapies to treat and prevent chronic illness and cancer in cats.
In the event that you opt for the expensive chemo route, changing your cat’s diet, and adding immune system supplements, will help them to deal with the toxic effects of medication and radiation. This approach gives your cat a fighting chance to recover.
The Roll of Good Bacteria
The foundation of a strong immune system is a healthy digestive environment. By providing your cat with SBO supplements, you can help prevent the development of lymphoma and cancer in your cats.
If your cat already has cancer, fortifying the immune system can be a powerful adjunct to traditional therapies, making them more effective, and thus increasing the cure rate of cancer in cats and thereby extending their lives. The Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain claims, “90% of all chronic disease is caused by an unhealthy intestinal system”. Clearly, improving gastrointestinal health has a synergistic effect on improving your cats’ response to medical treatment, as well as improving immune system health. In addition, cats with cancer often develop vomiting and diarrhea as a direct result of the medication insult occurring to their body, which can further weaken their immune system by impeding the absorption of essential nutrients and energy necessary to fight the cancer.
Primary Causes of Cat Cancer
By supplementing with a clinically proven soil-based probiotic products in cats, you will restore the natural balance in your cat’s gut. A strong immune system is the key to fighting and preventing disease.
Since a compromised or faulty immune system ultimately leads to cancer, it is logical to assume that supporting the immune system can help to prevent cancer in healthy pets, as well as encourage the immune system to fight back against cancer cells in sick cats.
An abundance of good bacteria, or “Probiotics” will restore, the balance to the gastrointestinal tract. They help to digest nutrients, balance the pH, and maintain good health. In times of illness, the good bacteria die off at a faster rate, predisposing your pet to further illness, chronic vomiting and diarrhea, and a weakened immune system.
Be aware that there is a wide discrepancy in the quality of probiotics. The vast majority are dairy-based, derived from cow milk that often contains, BGH, and antibiotic residues. Further, the cultures are often pasteurized and homogenized; processes that kill off most of the beneficial bacteria.
Routine supplementation with a broad spectrum soil-based probiotic formula can help to maintain, or reestablish the natural balance of your cat’s gut. Look for one that has at least 29 active strains.
You can help your cat deal with the effects of traditional therapies by incorporating all-natural supplements formulated specifically to revitalize and fortify those aspects of your cat’s immune system.
