Zulu’s Terrible Tummy Trouble…. Complementary Therapies to the Rescue!
Zulu, a 13-year-old cat named after a Zulu warrior, occasionally lives up to her name which can make a veterinary examination quite challenging!
Zulu came to see us after she had extensive testing done at her local vets to try and find out the reason for her regular vomiting that had been going on for months. Sometimes blood tests, x-rays and other types of investigation give us very valuable information and this helps us to correct the problem but in Zulu’s case no abnormalities were evident. Further to this, she hadn’t shown any response to the treatments prescribed.
As a last resort Zulu was brought to us to see if we could use any complementary therapies to help resolve her vomiting. As always, we ensured that her diet was optimal and prescribed some supplements but the main therapy that seemed to make the difference was NIS (the Neurological Integration System) which uses acupuncture principles and applied kinesiology to help correct imbalances and restore health.
Zulu’s Mum kept a detailed daily diary of Zulu’s habits, listing when she vomited, what she ate and how she seemed to be feeling. We were delighted when she showed us her diary indicating that since the NIS therapy she has had no further vomiting!
