My cat has painful teeth and bad kidneys such that he needs to be given subcutaneous fluids every day. He is now throwing up his food and in pain and we think it’s his teeth but the vet says his kidneys won’t tolerate anesthesia so he can’t help with the teeth. I want to give him oil of oregano because that kills gram negative bacteria such as grow in teeth infections. I read that cats can take this if it’s natural (high quality w/o fillers of any kind) and of course that it must be diluted as oil of oregano is extremely irritating. At the same time I see at many other sites that oil of oregano is toxic to cats because it requires some enzyme (glucaridase?) to eliminate phenols (whatever their source). So…I am not talking about giving this every day but maybe for 3-5 days or so to get rid of infection. What advice do you have on this? Thanks
I have a female mixed fox terrier, age 11, no prior health problems who suffered sudden bilateral hearing loss following a 3 day stay at a pet boarding facility.
Prior to visit the pet (Maggie) had perfect hearing.
Visit to veterinarian demonstrated no physical abnormality post otoscopic exam.
Pet presented no symptoms of auditory disease and was not introduced to any medications other than a vitamin/mineral supplement purchased week earlier distributed by GNC Pets.
Could constant barking sounds while at a pet shelter for only 3 days or perhaps a supplement given at recommended dose ( one per day) described as a premium ultra mega multivitamin plus formulation be suspect to sudden hearing loss?
