What is Feline Calicivirus?
Feline Calicivirus is a common viral infection that affects the respiratory tract, mouth, intestines and musculoskeletal system of cats. Symptoms usually last 14-21 days, during which the virus is extremely contagious to other cats. However, a cat can also be contagious during the incubation period (usually 2-6 days prior to symptoms). It can be spread through saliva or secretions from the nose or eyes. The virus can live for up to a week on items and it is important to disinfect the environment to protect other cats.
The most common symptoms of the virus are upper respiratory infections (sneezing, nasal congestion and conjunctivitis), ulcers in the cat’s mouth and sometimes on the lips and nose, inflammation and fatigue. Your pet's inability to smell and the painful ulcers may inhibit them from wanting to eat.  It's important to seek out veterinary care as some cats can become dehydrated and hospitalization is needed.   
Symptoms of Calicivirus  
  • Loss of appetite
  • Eye discharge
  • Nasal discharged
  • Development of ulcers on tongue, hard palate, tip of nose, lips or around claws
  • Pneumonia
  • Arthritis (inflammation of joints)
  • Lameness
  • Fever
Holistic care can help cats suffering from Calicivirus and offer immune support after the symptoms have subsided (some cats may remain carriers of the virus and have episodes of shedding viruses through their life). Using the Immune Support Kit with Power Probiotic can help speed recovery, reduce symptoms and support long term immune support.

Immune Support Kit

The Immune Support Kit Is An Effective, Easy To Use Home Remedy For Cats With Calcivirus

Contains three tasteless, natural remedies. These three remedies deliver fast relief for your pet's viral symptoms  and are easy to administer. They help modulate and support your pet's natural immune response rather than overstimulating it the way many supplements can.

NotaSAN - Natural homeopathic drops that fight  infection and support your pet's immune system. Controls harmful bacteria and restores gut flora balance, improving digestive symptoms and immune function. Gentle, easy to administer and safe for long-term use.

QuentaSAN -  The #1 Choice for pet with viral infections.  Natural homeopathic drops that fight 
viruses and infection, especially targeting the lung and upper respiratory system.  Works best using in conjunction with the NotaSAN.

Silver Immune Support - Silver Immune Support is an all-natural, easy to use remedy to help your pet recover from a bacterial infection or viral flare-up. It is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial and well tolerated even 

by tiny and young pets.

Power Probiotic - It is important to use a multi-strain, powerful Probiotic that has been used extensively with cats. We recommend the Power Probiotic, which is easy to administer, very effective and well tolerated by cats. The product has been third-party tested and guaranteed to contain the amounts of friendly bacteria indicated on the label. Pure and natural with no fillers.  Most cats like the taste.

 Diet For Cats With Calcivirus

Cats with calcivirus (and other viruses and/or autoimmune diseases) need a low carbohydrate, hypoallergenic diet.  Cats are carnivores and yet most cat commercial diets are high in carbohydrates which can weaken their immune system.  Please include your cat's diet on the Ask Ariel order form along with all of your cat's health issues and you will receive FREE diet tips on the packing slip that comes with your product directions.
