Olive Leaf: Your Secret Weapon on Immunity

Being one to reach for a holistic cure, before dowsing myself with all sorts of medications, I also attempt to do the same for my four-legged-furry family. I am here to extol the amazing healing properties of Olive Leaf. Recently all of my babies contracted Feline calicivirus, a cat upper respiratory illness, commonly known as the cat flu.

Those of us who own animals understand that sharing space with them is like living with a continual three year old, well I have five of them … all sick at the same time. When speaking to the veterinarian, he basically told me there is no specific treatment for FCV. Antibiotics could be are used for secondary bacterial infections, and immune modulators, but not much else can be done. I went back to nature.

A year or so ago I had given my Rottweiler olive leaf pills for a skin condition and it worked very well. However, giving pills to a cat is a ridiculous endeavor and what works for a 125 lb dog may not work for a 13 lb cat. After speaking with the vet [making sure each animal could handle olive leaf, some breeds cannot], I took a trip to my local herb store in search of a liquid Olive Leaf complex.
