Inside Scoop: TCVM Veterinarians Share Top Cat Allergies Protocol
It's a sad but true fact. Cats suffer from the discomforts of allergies just like people do.
What Do Cat Allergies Look Like?
When a cat suffers from allergies, it shows up in a few different ways.
Some signs your cat suffers from allergies include:
- Diarrhea and/or vomiting
- Itchy and runny eyes
- Itchy skin and excessive scratching
- Sneezing, coughing, wheezing, or snoring
- Swollen paws
Luckily, there are many quick and easy changes you can make at home to help you give your cat an edge on easing allergy and food sensitivity challenges.
We'll go over our veterinarians' protocol here, but you can get even more information in their ebook Cat Allergies 101: Make Your Cat Feel Better Today.
Cat Allergies Protocol Step #1: Switch to a Limited Ingredient Diet
Switching to a limited ingredient diet will made a huge difference in how your cat feels.
PET | TAO Limited Ingredient Cat Food Recipe is naturally low in foods that stimulate an allergic response.
The recipe is easy to make at home in your slow cooker.
Most cats also have much softer, shinier coats when fed a home-cooked diet.
Cat Allergies Protocol Step 2: Supplement with Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics
Try digestive enzymes and probiotics.
Both digestive enzymes and probiotics promote overall gut health, which boosts overall immune health and immune response.
Digestive enzymes help your cat better digest everything he or she eats. Human studies show that properly and completely digesting food plays an important role in allergic response.
Probiotics help overall gut health by reintroducing healthy bacteria back into your cat's system. If your cat has a good population of healthy gut bacteria, it remarkably reduces and prevents allergies.
Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron recommend PET | TAO Harmonize GI. Harmonize GI is a blend of prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes. You can purchase Harmonize GI in in our store without a veterinary prescription.
Cat Allergies Protocol Step #3: Feed Freeze Dried Lung Treats
According to TCVM, Lung is on the same meridian as the skin.
Therefore, lung treats help both breathing and skin allergies.
Lung treats support lung and skin similar to a glandular supplement in a “like treats like” fashion.
Dr. Smith and Dr. Damron recommend PET | TAO Freeze Dried Pork Lung Treats.
Cat Allergies Protocol Step #4: Try Medicinal Mushrooms
Supplementing with medicinal mushrooms is another holistic tool for helping cats suffering from allergies.
Medicinal mushrooms can ease inflammatory responses and allergy symptoms.
PET | TAO Complement Immune Mushroom Blend is an excellent product providing a synergistic blend of top medicinal mushrooms.
Complement Immune is available over-the-counter, without needing a veterinary prescription. So, you can easily purchase Complement Immune here in our store.
Cat Allergies Protocol Step #5: Consider a TCVM Herbal Remedy
TCVM herbal remedies are special Chinese herbs formulated to restore energy balance to opposing forces of energy that run through invisible channels in the body.
Chinese medicine offers many amazing natural solutions for cat allergies.
Some good examples are:
However, to get TCVM herbs you need an examination or telemedicine consult with a TCVM-trained veterinarian. A veterinary authorization is required to purchase herbs.
