Christmas for pets is an excellent time to get your dog, cat, or hamster some quality pet food and a nice Christmas basket full of treats. But, if you have a pet that is already suffering with pancreatitis, then getting them something good for Christmas might be a bit difficult. Pancreatitis is very painful and if you don’t treat it can be life threatening within a few weeks. So, what’s the best Christmas gift for dogs, cats, or hamsters with pancreatitis?
Well, the best gift for dogs, cats, or hamsters with pancreatitis is one that treats their illness, not only makes them feel better, but also prevents them from getting another attack of the disease. The top treatment options are surgery, antibiotics, and other medications. Surgery can help, but sometimes it can be life threatening, especially in the case of intestinal obstruction surgery. Surgery is expensive, very invasive, and there is always the risk of complications.
Antibiotics are great as well, but sometimes it isn’t the right choice for your dog or cat. Antibiotics kill off all bacteria, including the good ones. So, if your pet has this condition, the best choice for treatment would be a natural, holistic approach that includes supplements, nutrients, herbs, and homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy is a great option because it actually attacks the cause of the disease without harming your pets nerve tissue.
Supplements include things like fish oil, flax seed, digestive enzymes, and probiotics. These all work to restore your pet’s intestines back to their natural health and get them back on track to digest their food properly. I know that when my dogs had intestinal obstruction, I purchased several different brands of digestive enzymes and probiotics. That allowed my dogs to be able to eat small amounts throughout the day instead of all at once.
There are also homeopathic remedies that are very effective for dogs with IBS. They work to calm down your dog’s stomach so that they can release gas and stool. In addition, they can treat and prevent heartburn, constipation, and other gastrointestinal issues. Homeopathic remedies are much safer than treating dogs with prescription medications. Plus, they are 100% natural and made from plant based ingredients, minerals, and vitamins.
As you can see, treating dogs with UTI’s is not always as simple as treating your own cat. This is why I recommend that you consult with a homeopathic veterinarian who will be able to help you make the right decision about what treatment is best for your pet. Plus, homeopathy is a safe form of treatment for dogs. Unlike many other treatments, it is gentle and doesn’t have any side effects. So, this Christmas for pets, give your dog a homeopathic remedy instead of something stronger.
