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

Tips I would add to above list:
Bad breath - Coconut oil
Digestive disorders - Coconut oil

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.
