It is becoming more and more recognized that natural or alternative treatments can be beneficial for both pets and humans. While a trip to the vet or doctors should not be discounted when faced with an injury or illness, herbal and natural remedies can work side by side with conventional medicine. Here are just a few remedies that are commonly used by cat owners.

Allergies - Ginko Biloba
Bacterial infection/Immune System - Bee Propolis
Bad Breath - Aloe Vera Toothpaste - Bee Propolis, Chlorella, Sage
Burns - Aloe Vera Gel
Digestive disorders - Slippery Elm powder, Aloe Vera, Pumpkin
Eye Infections - Callendula, Borage
Fatigue / Old age - Bee Pollen
Growth Promoter - Chlorella
Hyperthyroidism - Royal Jelly
Injuries - Aloe Vera Gel. Arnica
Intestinal Parasites/worms - Coconut oil (treat for twice a day for a month)
Liver and Kidney - Lycium
Pregnancy and Birth Problems - Raspberry leaf Caulophyllum
Rheumatism - Dandelion
Skin Problems - Aloe Vera Gel
Stud Tail - Aloe Vera Gel, Bee Propolis cream
Travel Sickness - Cocculus

Extra tips:
Grapes and Raisins can cause kidney failure in cats

Tips I would add to above list:
Bad breath - Coconut oil
Digestive disorders - Coconut oil
Hair balls - Cat grass

Garlic & Onions Are Toxic to Dogs & Cats
Due to this warning a tip listed above from the link that I changed is for Intestinal Parasites/worms from garlic (treat once a day for 15 day) to coconut oil (treat twice a day for a month.)

One tip I removed from the list above was for Fleas - Garlic (due to toxicity in cats & dogs.) Another tip listed in the link above that I removed was is Obesity - Garcinia Cambogia. I would maybe recommend trying a grain free diet.

Feel free to post any more useful tips that you know or tips listed above you do not agree with.

Thanks for the information. Grapes and raisins are also bad for dogs and cause kidney damage.

Great list thanks. I've been having great sucess wih propolis for my senior kitty. I'd add tumeric as an all around tonic/anti-inflamation for the seniors as well.

Food grade diamatious earth can be used for parasites in dogs and cats as well.

Avocado is poisonous to dogs and cats.

Especially the leaves of the plant. I learned that when my cat decided to trim one of my seedlings.
