My Stuart In The Hospital

On the weekend, my cat Stuart got very sick all of a sudden. He was apparently holding toxins, crystals and blood in his bladder and couldn't go to the washroom. It seemed like it came out of nowhere but it must have been building up for quite some time. Almost killing him, my heart has been in my stomach all week. I want to share this information because I've been hearing that this is a common problem in male cats. People need to know that their diet is a very serious thing. All these brands of food that are made out to be healthy, are not. My cats hate the healthy food but I think they're just going to have to try because I don't ever want to lose them. People have also been giving me tips on how to avoid this illness, so I'm going to list them here.

- buy Hill Science Diet
- canned food is better
- avoid cat food with high Ash content
- give your cat a syringe of one dropper of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar to four tablespoons of bottled water once a week
- avoid fish food content (especially tuna)

If anyone wants to add their tips, just leave a message and I'll add it to my list. Lots of love for our furry babies. Here's a picture of Stuart finally getting better in the hospital.
