A healthy diet and lifestyle, and natural immune system boosters will undoubtedly help any pet affected by resistant infections. Some safe natural immune boosters are described above, but it would be wise to get expert advice about their use.

There are many other effective natural treatments for pets affected by MRSA and similar infections. These won’t replace the need for targeted antibiotics, but the appropriate natural medicines can enhance the effect of antibiotic therapy and promote the functioning of the immune system. For instance, homoeopathic remedies and specific herbal medicines can be given to good effect alongside any antibiotics or other drugs that are being administered.

An experienced holistic vet can formulate an individual treatment regime for your pet that would add an extra healing dimension to any treatment with antibiotics and other ‘conventional’ drugs. If you are interested in a more in depth approach to natural treatments, ask your vet to refer you to a vet with experience of homoeopathy and other holistic therapies (the website www.bahvs.com has a list of vets using homoeopathy)

If you have no homoeopathic vet within reasonable travelling distance, do contact Richard for more advice.
