What can you suggest to help my kitten with Cerebellar Hypoplasia?

0
Q.I am fostering a ten-week-old kitten with severe cerebellar hypoplasia. I have had him about two weeks and he is progressing and learning to adapt. He has tremors and sometimes can barely walk. He just flops from side to side or does somersaults. The flopping and somersaults are getting less severe and I have high hopes that he will improve to the point that he just has a funny walk along with his tremors. Is there anything you can suggest that might help? I have only begun to learn extensively about this condition after I almost had him euthanized, thinking it was the humane thing to do. CH shouldn’t be a death sentence.

 

A.I agree. I used to have a hospital cat named Waldo who had this condition and he enjoyed a very good and long life. He was also a riot, and I truly suspect he didn’t know he had a problem. For supporting any part of the brain, my clinic uses Neurotrophin by Standard Process Labs, Sphingolin by Emerson Ecologics, and a homeopathic by Professional Complementary Health Formulas called Brain Enhancement Liquiescence.
