I took in a stray cat that was expecting. As a result, I now have seven cats and cannot afford to keep them all, so I am trying to find loving homes for them.
The kiittens are now five months old and have a roundworm infestation. Someone is adopting one of the kittens, taking it from me in just three days, and plans to use drugs to deal with parasites and fleas, getting the drugs administered on a schedule of every 6 months. Her “homeopathic veterinarian” (so-called) has not seen the kitten, but has told her that homeopathy is not the answer for roundworms and has convinced her the kitten should stay on medication year-round especially since he will be an indoor-outdoor cat. Sadly, this vet is not a homeopath, obviously, and is leading this lady, who wants what’s best for her new kitten, astray.
So the kitten’s new owner has asked me to go ahead and administer the homeopathic remedy I had chosen for him, while he is still in my care, even though she is going to put him on the drugs very soon. I do not know when it is best to administer the remedy. Now, before the drugs are given, or later, after the drugs have been given.
I have spent countless hours studying an introductory veterinarian homeopathy course in order to select the correct remedy for each kitten. For this kitten, I have chosen Sulphur because the kitten has some itching, the kitten’s stray father has mange, and the kitten is easy-going and happy-go-lucky with little to nothing to indicate any remedy.He has had a couple of incidences of upper respiratory symptoms, at the same time that his siblings have had them, at times of weather changes, and at least once (along with a fever) during a full moon.
The mother cat had a few patches of missing fur when I acquired her, but this is no longer the case for her. After this kitten’s neuter surgery and rabies vaccine of two months ago, he does itch a little bit more.
Nose, jaw, and ears, especially, itch. Inside the ears, too. There is a little bit of eye discharge coating outside the inner corner of his eyes.It looks whitish. I have noticed mild twitching or trembling of muscles from time to time in his limbs while he sleeps.
His fur is very thick but rougher and dryer than the fur of his siblings. He sort of coughed once, a month after the vaccine, as if he were trying to get a worm out of his throat. He also sleeps more after the vaccine. He is very lovey-dovey and cuddly, very sweet and kind, and he is big. Not obese, just not small or thin. He is very laid-back and mild in his personality. He is not a picky eater. He is a black-striped brown tabby with a little reddish fur outlining the spotted underside of his body, and a little reddish fur in a few other places. He is quiet. Low maintenance.
The new owner wants me to administer an anti-psoric homeopathic remedy before she gets her the kitten in a couple of days. My question is this: Should a dose of a remedy be administered BEFORE the anti-flea and anti-worm drugs are given, and if so, how far in advance?(She is thinking of drugging him either immediately or within two weeks, which I think is too soon.) Or should nothing be given until AFTER the administration of the drugs, and after retaking the case?
