How Holistic Cat Care Helps Protect Your Kitty’s Nine Lives

More than ever, kitty parents are showing interest in the benefits of holistic cat care. If you follow pet influencers on Social Media, you know exactly what we are talking about. So many cat parents share their furkiddo’s meal on their profiles and are happy to invest time and money in proactive support. But is this really necessary for an otherwise healthy kitty?

The Importance of a Healthy Diet

Their audacity and agility are partially responsible for the myth that kitties have multiple lives. But the truth of the matter is that cats are also at risk for several health conditions. An excellent way to be ready to protect your beloved cat’s life is by knowing the most common issues that can affect them and how to be proactive at an early age.

A healthy immune system helps protect your cat’s “nine lives” against diseases.

Setting up your kitty for success starts with a balanced diet. In the same way, a cat that isn’t intaking all of the necessary nutrients and vitamins to grow healthy and strong has a higher chance of struggling in the future. If this is a concern, NHV Multi Essentials can be used as a food topper to help optimize your little one’s nutrition.

A healthy immune system is also crucial in protecting your little one’s “nine lives” against diseases. Supplements like NHV Natures Immuno can help promote healthy immune function in kitties that are fully weaned and vaccinated (usually over four months). This all-natural mushroom blend can also help support organs like the heart and kidneys that could be otherwise affected by an issue in the future.

Holistic Cat Care Tips for Common Conditions

Their stoic and resilient nature is possibly another reason why people believe cats have nine lives. Even though felines are often experts at hiding pain and discomfort, they still feel it. So pet parents need to be attentive to any changes to their kitty’s behavior for early diagnosis in hopes of slowing down the condition’s progression.

These are some of the most common issues that holistic cat care can help avoid, slow down, or address:

Recurring Urinary Tract Infections

The delicate balance of the urinary system can sometimes be disrupted, leading to urinary tract infections in cats. Factors that can affect a cat’s risk of UTIs include age, gender, diet, genetics, and overall health. Female cats and those with certain anatomical characteristics may be more susceptible. Adequate hydration, a clean litter box, an appropriate diet, and regular veterinary check-ups can help reduce the likelihood of UTIs. Studies with NHV Tripsy have proven to be effective for several urinary tract issues, including UTIs. This herbal blend is gentle enough also to be used for proactive support.

When Hairballs Become an Issue

Cats are notorious for their meticulous grooming habits, but sometimes this can lead to the formation of hairballs. Factors that can affect a cat’s risk of developing hairballs include their grooming frequency, length of fur, and digestive health. Regular brushing and specialized diets can help reduce the occurrence of these furry surprises. At NHV you can count on Hairb-EZ to help the furrier friends to prevent or get rid of furballs.

Dental Holistic Cat Care

Dental issues, such as periodontal disease and tooth decay, can trouble cats of all ages. Several factors can influence a cat’s risk of dental disease, including genetics, diet, and dental hygiene. Certain breeds may be more prone to dental problems, and a diet lacking in dental care can contribute to the buildup of plaque and tartar. Regular brushing and dental check-ups are also essential for maintaining good oral health. NHV Mouth Drops can be a great ally for dental disease as the formulation herbs help fight oral infection, reduce gum disease, and prevent tooth decay. Just rub it on your cat’s mouth, and you are one step further from dental disease.

Natural Allergy Support for Cats

Just like humans, our feline companions can develop allergies too. Common allergens for cats include certain foods, environmental factors (such as pollen or dust mites), and even flea bites. Recognizing the signs of allergies, such as itching, sneezing, or gastrointestinal issues, and working with a veterinarian to identify and manage the allergen can help keep our cats comfortable and healthy. NHV Alge-Ex, for environmental allergies, and NHV Stimmune, for food allergies, are just some of the supplements that can help address these symptoms. NHV TumFlora can help with digestive issues related to food allergies, and NHV Yucca can help with pain, inflammation, and allergy symptoms like itchiness.

We hope you are better prepared to take proactive steps with holistic cat care now that you understand the common health issues that can affect your feline kiddo. If the health condition of your little one is not listed here, please get in touch with one of our Pet Experts, and we will help you find the best supplements to help you and your loved kitty.
