Is Borax Safe for Cats? Help Needed for Chronic Sinus Infections
I have been reading your posts on the Earth Clinic website, and was wondering if a Borax/water solution is safe to give cats? Two of my cats came from a breeder, and had a horrible upper respiratory infection at 12 weeks when we picked them up. They are now 2 years old, and still suffer constantly with a sinus infection. Initially, we tried antibiotics to rule out a bacterial infection, and was informed it could be a fungal infection. The vet wanted to subject one of them to a rather large probe up the nose to biopsy the sinus cavity.
I refuse to do this, and have tried a score of natural remedies to no avail. I've tried several homeopathic pills, apple cider vinegar to the back of the neck and in the water bowls, and recently goldenseal and echinacea in their water. The ACV does help the recurring virus, but not the sinus infection. Can you recommend anything? I am sure they both have an immunity problem, as my other two cats are perfectly fine.
Thanks for your help
