Hi Millie

This is probably a bit late for you but you may be able to tuck the info away for another time.  Kidney bladder problems are very common in cats.

There are two herbs that will break up kidney stones one is Eupatorium purpureum (Gravel root) and the other one is Hydrangea arborescens (Hydrangea).  But to use them for stones you need to mix them with something that will soothe the urinary passages in case they pass.  I usually use Marshmallow and Corn silk.  Mix these herbs either in tincture form or dried (and make into a tea, soaking them 20 mins or more) and give three times a day.  The dose for tinctures is 4 drops a day and tea is about 1/4 teaspoon.

Sorry I can't help you with the vet bills.

Stones in Bladder & Kidney-cat
« Reply #1 on: May 21, 2005, 02:52:47 PM »
Hi,
The last time I wrote, it was for another cat who had kidney
failure. Well, she has been doing great.Today is another baby sick. Yesterday when I was getting up for work, I seen
one of my babies that just didn't seem his self. The coolest 6 yr. old cat. When you call his name (Sebastian)
he would come to you, then give you a kiss. He was just laying around and no kisses. In my heart, I felt something was wrong.When I picked him up, he wanted down. We called the vet and they couldn't get us in til Sat morning (today).
We told them, we thought he may be blocked as we did see him in the litter box. That made no difference. He seemed ok for a while as he ate and pottied but late at night, he was back down. At 6:30am he was almost dead. We were at the vet's by 7:30 and they drained him but said he was full of blood. They still thought he would be ok. We said he ate Wellness food, so they said they would check for stones then. I just received a call that he has stones in bladder & kidneys and still had low temp. He's on a heating pad.
They feel he is a poor risk for an operation.I did give him
3cc of cranberry CONCENTRATE last night. What can be done for him? As I am writting,my heart is so broke, he has NEVER been sick or away from home.At this mommet,my Mommy cat who was sick just threw up! The vet said they would call tomorrow again. They already wanted $800-1000. No payments,because people with cats don't pay their bills.
I have no credit card. What can I do for him?? The Holistic Vet had no hours at all.Please someone help. I will bring him home tomorrow if someone will tell me what will dissolve these stones.I just can't lose him.I am totally broke and HEART BROKE at the same time. Please someone help.
I have to find away to save him. Please tell me there is HOPE. Sorry, it's such a long letter and thanks in advance for help.
