Feline Infectious Anemia
Help Support Recovery From Feline Infectious Anemia (Mycoplasma) in Cats
Feline infectious anemia is caused by an infection of blood parasites that produce bacteria which multiply in the bloodstream causing the anemia. The blood parasites are transmitted to cats through the bite of a flea or tick.
Some cats have no adverse reaction to the bite while others may become agitated or ill with infections ranging from mild to deadly, and cats with weakened immune systems are more at risk. Male cats between the ages of one and three are most likely to be infected.
NHV Natural Pet Products include all-natural feline infectious anemia prevention supplements to help deter the parasites that cause it, and heal the damage done by the condition. They should be taken along with a vet prescribed treatment for feline infectious anemia.
Benefits of NHV Holistic Supplements For Feline Infectious Anemia
In order to help your pet get the most benefit, NHV Pet Expert recommend combining a few different supplements for comprehensive support.
- Yucca. If a pet parent can only do one supplement, Dr. Amanda recommends using Yucca strongly for feline infectious anemia, as there have been some studies regarding its benefits for mycoplasma. Uicca is also beneficial for energy, and loss of appetite.
- BK Detox - a gentle blood purifier
- Felimm - to help with lymphatic system
Should a pet be suffering from non-infectious anemia, the NHV Pet Experts have bundled an anemia kit, which contains Turmeric, Yucca and Multi Essentials. These supplements will provide extra nutritional support and aid with wellbeing and energy.
Causes of Feline Infectious Anemia
Anemia is the medical term when there is a low number of red blood cells in the bloodstream. Infectious anemia is caused by a particular type of bacteria called mycoplasma. Fleas and ticks transfer the bacteria to the cats after feeding on infected animals, and the mycoplasma attaches to the red blood cells and destroys them. When mycoplasmas destroy a large number of red blood cells, it causes anemia.
NHV’s vet-formulated herbal feline infectious anemia prevention can be used as natural support along with a vet-recommended treatment plan, and our organically grown supplements contain no additives or preservatives.
