Nicki Eats!



Nicki's been suffering from stomatitis - a painful infection of the mouth - for about a year. For a while, he wouldn't (or couldn't) even eat, and he lost a lot of weight. Our vet has been treating him homeopathically, and he's shown real improvement the past couple of months. Here he is eating! Not a big deal for most cats, but we're glad to see it!

    He's not out of the woods - he still has bouts of pain, and the sores are still there, just moved around. Unfortunately, stomatitis has no known cause and all the vets disagree on the treatment - some say steroids, some say antibiotics, some say pull the teeth. Our vet specializes in "alternative" methods and had some success with treating stomatitis homeopathically. Unfortunately, Nicki hasn't responded as well as his other patients, but he is responding!
