Five Popular Complementary Therapies For Your Cat

Using needles, a qualified Veterinary Surgeon (who's trained in acupuncture) will skilfully use this ancient technique to naturally help your cat. See more in this BBC article or read more in my advice page here.
- Colour Therapy - cats can respond to different colours. And knowing what colours your cat prefers can help him or her to be happier. For instance, you could have a lovely bed/blanket for your cat, but if it's a colour they don't like then they won't sleep on it! Find out more here.
- Cat and Canine Muscle Release Therapy - this aims to promote the healing process by signalling the brain to do so. Specific areas in a sequence have the moves applied over the muscles. This helps to give the signal to the body to take the muscle out of spasm, and helps the body to achieve balance - promoting the wellbeing of the whole animal. Read more at my advice page here.
- Physiotherapy - veterinary physiotherapy can help cats too! It's not just great for rehabilitating from injury but also preventatively. It can also be used to help manage arthritis. Read more here.

How to Help Your Cat With Holistic Approach
Together with complementary therapies, like those listed above. There are other ways you can help care for your cat holistically. This includes:
Raw feeding - Your cat's diet is essential. The saying "you are what you eat" is as true for cats as it is for people! A raw food diet means food is not processed. Sometimes it's known as "BARF" which stands for "bones and raw food" or "biologically-appropriate raw food. So how do you do this? I suggest speaking to a holistic vet who can advise you. There are also many vets who are members of the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society. And you can also find many raw feeds in many retailers - including those by "Natures Menu" amongst others.
Tellington Ttouch - Caring for and handling your cat can be challenging sometimes. You take your cat to the vet and he or she doesn't like it (who can blame them!). Or fireworks or thunderstorms cause fear. How you try to help your cat can make a massive difference on both you and your cat. Tellignton Ttouch is a training technique that's powerful and yet gentle.
Do complementary animal therapies really work for your cat?
As with any medicine - natural or "conventional", what may work for one cat will not work for another. That's just because every cat (and living being) is different!
But yes complementary therapies can and do work. Get more information research and evidence on complementary therapies here at my advice page.
