Three Simple Lessons You Learn from Caring for a Cat with Cancer

Posted 2020-07-02

It is heartbreaking when your pet is diagnosed with cancer. As a pet owner, we don’t want our furry family member to feel sick during their last days. In this article, we will share three simple lessons that we can learn from caring for a cat with cancer through Teagan’s story.

This is Teagan, who was diagnosed with lymphoma and given a day to live. His mom thought it was the end of the road for her dear senior cat but she felt it wasn’t yet time to give up. She reached out to us to ask if we had anything to help keep Teagan comfortable in the days ahead, and we were more than happy to explain the holistic options available.

We know that the situation of cats with cancer is not always easy to understand, or to talk about – but here at NHV, our Pet Experts try to shine light on all possible steps available for pet parents when they receive such a diagnosis. As many cat owners know, lymphoma is one of the most common forms of feline cancer. Teagan started taking ES Clear, BK Detox, Milk Thistle, and Turmeric in October. It didn’t take long for his mom to notice improvements in his condition – Teagan got his spunk back again.

This is a before and after of my kitty Teagan. His diagnosis of either lymphoma or IBD has consumed me this past month but finally we are seeing enormous improvement in his overall health since using @nhvnaturalpet and I’m so thankful. Since this photo, he’s started gaining weight back, eating, drinking, and playing. His energy is up and he’s behaving like the kitty I knew before the illness. Just one more instance of Mother Nature and natural supplements healing in a more gentle manner than strong lab made pharmaceuticals.

The 3 months ahead were pain free and Teagan was able to give his mom some happy golden memories and some special life lessons:

1. Not every day is going to be the best, but you strive to make them full. You may be tired, but you also learn to not live in your fears. The difficult times are where the growth occurs. Your pet may have ups and downs, the same ways that your emotional gas tank may not be as full. If our pets could talk, they would probably tell us how grateful they are to have you. Although their speech is limited to woofs and purrs, every pet parent knows what each unique one means.

2. Find support for yourself when helping your pet cope with cancer. You may be overwhelmed, have waves of fear, frustration, and questions.  Just know that there are support teams around you that can help – whether that be your vet, family members and loved ones, or support groups.

3. Appreciate every day. Feeling gratitude goes along with noticing the positive, and is an excellent way to appreciate every moment with your fur kid. Laugh, play, and smile- more than you ever have, because you know in sickness and in health, each moment is precious.

In these times, we can learn powerful life lessons and become closer with our own pet’s needs, thereby strengthening the animal to human connection. We admire Teagan and his loving momma for taking his holistic cancer journey, one paw step at a time.

Today is Teagan’s last day with us. Thank you for turning his one day prognosis into three more full months.

Heaven gained another warrior as Teagan lost his battle in December 2018. He brought so much love and joy into his family’s life. We send our love to this precious angel and his family. <3
