Cat – giardia/ giardiosis
Giardia are parasites that can cause severe diarrhea in cats, many other animals and humans.
It can lead to severe inflammation of the small intestine.
The diarrhea often alternates with normal defecation.
The feces are slimy, smelly and sometimes bloody.
Most of the time, the cats are fine nevertheless.
Giardia are spread through ingestion of contaminated water and / or contact with infected animals.
Stress can also lead to an outbreak of giardia.
The diarrhea is a healthy reaction of the body, because it tries to get rid of the Giardia.
Conventional medicine treats it with e.g. Panacur.
However, this does not eliminate the cause.
Cause intestinal flora & immune system
The cause is a non-intact intestinal flora and thus a non-intact immune system.
If the intestinal flora is not in balance, neither can the immune system.
Without a healthy immune system, the cat cannot fight off the parasites.
Because of this, many kittens have a Giardia problem because the immune system is still
is not fully developed or is sensitively disturbed by vaccinations, de-worming, etc.
If the intestinal flora is built up and completely “dense”, the Giardia has no chance any longer.
The first thing to do is to rebuild the intestinal flora.
Diet also plays a major role.
Cats are strict carnivores, and a wild cat’s diet would contain almost no carbohydrates.
Giardia feed on carbohydrates.
This means that dry food and wet food containing carbohydrates should be removed from the food plan immediately in order to starve the Giardia – and to feed the cat appropriately.
If diarrhea persists, it is important to check if the cat is stressed.
This can be triggered by a wide variety of causes, such as construction work, the other cat(s),
new people in the environment, changes in routine … etc.
With the bioresonance analysis I can test which remedies for the intestinal flora are right for your cat, which food would support it and what it on top needs against the Giardia.
Depending on where the stress-inducing cause lies, the treatment should start individually and specifically.Bi
