Ten Ways to Help Prevent Cancer in Cats

So many people are concerned about how to prevent cancer in cats. Cats become part of the family, and when they are sick it can have devastating emotional effects. If you have a cat, remember that prevention is the best medicine there is. Unfortunately in cats, cancer tends to be more aggressive. For starters, female cats will have a better chance of avoiding mammary cancer. It's best to spay female cats prior to their first heat cycle when possible. Furthermore, a high quality diet is very important. There is even some evidence that EPA and DHA (fatty acids) may be helpful in preventing cancer in cats. 

However, be wary of overfeeding. Because fat is part of the endocrine system, excess fat can lead to unbalanced hormones and increased inflammatory responses. Furthermore, secondhand smoke can affect the lungs in cats. To help prevent cancer in cats, be sure to avoid sources of secondhand smoke in the home.

Another issue is household and lawn chemicals. If your cat does go outdoors, it's best to keep the animal leashed so that the animal doesn't wander off into others' lawns. Avoid using pesticides and other harmful chemicals on your own lawn and in your home. 

Essiac tea is a popular herbal remedy to help a cat who is suffering from a health ailment. It can also be used preventively.

How to Administer Essiac Tea to a Cat

  • It's best to provide the essiac on an empty stomach. This means no food 2 hours before essiac and 1 hour after.
  • You may mix the essiac with the runoff of broth from tuna, or another liquid that the cat likes. It's best to choose low sodium tuna since you will be giving it often. You may need to throw in a few kitty treats to entice the cat - that is worthwhile if it means the cat will take the tea.
  • You can try administering the essiac to the cat with a syringe as well. In that case you will likely have to tightly swaddle the cat.
