Wanted to share this but wasn't sure where to post it.

This is for families with pet cats. Ours used to live with our son but he moved overseas and we inherited her. For several years he spent big money on the vet to get her to stop licking the hair off her belly. She licked so much it even bled. Steroids, tranquilizers and all kinds of expensive medicines and shots did no good. One evening I was trying to think what things we had in our house that our son had in his. Different carpet, different food, different cat litter. Ah Ha! City water with all the chlorine and chemicals. We switched her to local spring water, discontinued the medicine and after 3 months she's all healed. And we cancelled her $150.00 Steroid shot.
Cheers.

Most people don't realize that animals suffer the same miseries as humans when it comes to food and chemical sensitivities. Kudo's for figuring out the problem on your own.

There is a direct correlation between diet and health, which has spurned a huge upsurge in natural foods and human grade foods for pets. Most of the mass produced pet foods are little more than McDonald's in kibble form. Like humans, pets with a steady diet of garbage have a lot of health issues. Switching to natural foods and/or better quality foods means a healthier diet for the animal, which reduces health issues and increases quality of life - just like in humans.

Vet bills can sure add up.
