Are There Any Effective Holistic Treatments for Tumors in Cats?

Answered by Dr. Christina Chambreau

You may have seen a lump on your cat. You may have seen that your cat had decreased energy or decreased appetite and when you went to your conventional veterinarian or your holistic veterinarian to see what was going on, they told you your cat has a tumor. It could be a tumor anywhere inside or outside and now you’re wondering, are there any holistic approaches that could help my cat recover from this tumor or at least feel better while she has the tumor? The answer is yes. 

There are a lot of effective holistic approaches to treating tumors in cats. Conventionally, the treatment would be surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. The first step is, of course, as I said, you’ll need to go to your veterinarian for a hands-on exam with blood work, maybe x-ray, ultrasound, possibly a biopsy. It would be wonderful if you already had a veterinarian who was trained in homeopathy, Chinese medicine or chiropractic as they could do a much more complete exam and give you more information. 

Well, now you know they have a tumor. Now, what can you do? Work with a homeopathic veterinarian. Work with a veterinarian trained in TCVM. Both of these can effectively resolve tumors in cats. Not all cats, but many cats. There are other holistic approaches that can also be used including ozone, herbs, Western herbs, as well as Chinese herbs, Flower Essences, essential oils, and many many more.
