If you have noticed signs of
lethargy, coughing, sneezing, fever and runny eyes or
nose, then your pet is probably suffering from a cold or
upper respiratory infection. This is an infection of the
nose, throat and upper airways similar to when humans
get a cold or flu. Cats are particularly prone to
respiratory infections, but dogs can also contract them,
including the common problem of kennel cough.
You may also notice that your pet
has stopped eating; this happens particularly to cats
because their appetites are primarily driven by smell.
If a catís nose is blocked and he cannot smell, he will
probably become more picky about what he will eat or
stop eating altogether for a few days.
Like humans, pets are also
susceptible to secondary sinus and chest infections that
can result from an untreated cold or initial upper
Although respiratory infections
usually resolve within about 7-10 days, very young or
very old pets may be at serious risk when infected with
a cold or respiratory infection. For this reason, one
should never ignore a petís illness. Prompt attention
and treatment will save your pet much discomfort and, in
weaker animals, may even save their life.
causes respiratory infections in pets?
Various harmful organisms like
viruses and bacteria can cause upper respiratory
infections in pets and the nose, eyes, throat and
sinuses may all be involved. These may be contagious
among pets, but the organisms that affect pets are
usually different from those affecting humans so
catching a cold from your pet, or the other way around,
should not be a concern.
Viruses and bacteria will cause
illness much more readily in pets with weakened immune
systems caused by another illness, poor diet and
unhealthy lifestyle or advanced age.
What is the
conventional treatment for
Antibiotics are the
usual treatment for respiratory infections and are
generally effective in clearing bacterial infections.
While antibiotics are not effective in viral infections
like colds and flu, they are often prescribed
prophylactically in order to prevent secondary
infections (which are often bacterial).
Despite their initial
efficacy, the downside of antibiotic drugs is that they
reduce immune functioning, making your pet vulnerable to
recurrence or other illness and infection. A vet may
also prescribe medications (e.g. decongestives) for
relief of congestion and other symptoms.
natural remedies help?
Natural remedies can help to
safely reduce your petís unpleasant symptoms during an
upper respiratory tract infection, cut recovery time and
also strengthen the immune system to prevent recurring
infection. Due to the high safety profile of the
ingredients, our natural remedies are also free of

infections in pets.
in small lactose tablets which are readily taken
by dogs and which may be crushed and easily
administered to cats.
PetAlive Respo-K contains the
following 100% natural ingredients:
Calc. sulph. (D6) is a biochemic tissue
salt useful in suppurating conditions including all
infections and also speeds up the natural healing
process. Calc. sulph. is useful for relief of cough,
especially when phlegm is thin or watery and treats
sore, irritated throats.
Ferrum phos. (D6) is another biochemic
tissue salt that has many uses in the body. The most
important benefits are in the ability of Ferrum Phos. to
combat all types of infection and inflammation. Ferrum
Phos. also helps to strengthen the walls of the blood
vessels and thus improves the body's ability to
distribute oxygen-rich blood and iron to all cells,
thereby facilitating healing. Ferrum Phos. is
recommended at the first stage of any infection for fast
resolution of the symptoms.
Hepar. Sulph. (12C) is a homeopathic
remedy for infections, skin ailments, earache, sore
throats and rattling coughs. It is particularly useful
in inflammation of the throat and larynx, bronchitis and
tonsillitis. It also accelerates the natural healing
processes in the body.
Verbascum thapsus (Mullein leaves) is an
anti-inflammatory and antiseptic herb. In herbal
literature, Mullein leaves are classified as
expectorants (promote the discharge of mucus) and
demulcents (soothes irritated mucous membranes). These
properties make Verbascum an excellent remedy for
infections of the respiratory tract. This herb has also
been proven to be especially useful for irritating
coughs and bronchial congestion.
Sambucus nigra (Elder flowers) is a
widely used herbal remedy for coughs, colds and flu. As
a diaphoretic herb (causing perspiration) it is useful
for relieving fever. Recent research has shown that
Sambucus nigra also contains compounds that are active
against several strains of flu viruses.

used your Respo-K remedy for my kitten
when she got a cold. I was really worried about her as
she is still so young and fragile. By the end of the
weekend, she was looking much better and was eating
again. By Wednesday she was her old self again. I have a
friend whose kitten died from something as simple and
ďminorĒ as a cold so I am really relieved and grateful.
Thank you!" - Tertia
wanted to write and tell you about my experience with
your natural remedies. I am a big cat-lover and have a
house full of pets. Your PetAlive has become one of my
favorite websites and Iíve ordered a number of different
remedies for my extended ďfamilyĒ. Although I have been
happy with everything Iíve ordered from you I must
specifically comment on your Respo-K
and Sinu-Rite products. I have one cat
who often gets respiratory tract infections and itís
almost a given that her sinuses become involved. We have
battled with this problem and I canít tell you what Iíve
spent in vet bills and antibiotics. Last time she got an
infection I gave her Respo-K and Sinu-Rite and she
recovered much more quickly than usual. I continued to
give her the remedies for a little while after she was
well again and she hasnít had a repeat infection since.
She actually seems much stronger and healthier overall
as Iím sure the numerous illnesses were putting a
serious strain on her health and energy. I am going to
make sure I always have stock of these remedies in my
house from now on!" - Moira Higgs

Many holistic vets will agree that
the more raw food (as opposed to cooked meals or dried
commercial pet food) the animal eats, the fewer general
health problems there will be. Ideally the best diet for
a cat or dog is one which most closely resembles that
which he would find in the wild.
For cats, who are largely
carnivorous, this should consist of mainly raw meat
(minced beef and chicken, chicken livers) mixed with a
little bone meal and a small amount of some grated
carrot or finely chopped greens like spinach.
Dogs will do well if more chopped
and grated raw vegetables are added to their diets. We
also recommend raw meat and raw bones for dogs, mixed
with grated raw vegetables and chopped salads.
A teaspoon or two of olive oil
added to the meal every day (depending on size) will
also be beneficial. Do not give your animals any milk at
all - nor products containing sugar. Animals who follow
this type of diet are usually completely infection and
