As many of you know, we have a newsletter – it’s free to subscribe (see side bar for sign up info). I love when the newsletters go out because it usually brings in an influx of feedback from readers into my inbox. One such situation was a reader, Sutton, who reported about how Willard Water cured his kitty’s conjunctivitis.
Here’s how the Siamese Kitten Tom Selleck was cured of conjunctivitis with Willard Water:
“I was just scrolling through this recent email newsletter from you to see what articles are listed. I just read the interview with Dr. Hofve about cat conjunctivitis. Tom Selleck had that REAL bad in one eye, and it started just a few days after I got him. It was red, lots of goopy stuff and he kept squinting it. The ointment from the vet did nothing. I just wanted to say that I discovered WillardWater (that Dr. Hofve mentioned). I put it in Tom Selleck’s eye and in his water bowl. His eye cleared up completely in 2 days! Anytime I refill his water bowl, I add some WillardWater to it. He hasn’t had any flare-ups or problems since! I got a big bottle of it from Vitacost for about $16. I called the WillardWater website to find out exactly how much he needs. It takes very little and the bottle will last for years – it’ll probably outlive my cat. They have great customer service too.
I’ve attached 5 pictures:
– the 1st one is May 3, 2016 – You can see the conjunctivitis starting in his right eye.
– the 2nd is May 16, 2016 – It hurt me to see his eye like that!
– the 3rd is May 20, 2016 – just 2 days after I started putting Willard Water in his eye and in his water bowl!
– the 4th is May 21, 2016 – his eye is all healed up!
– the 5th is from last week on his 1st birthday 🙂
I continued to put WW in his eye for a few more days just to make sure. He’s a year old now and I continue to put WW in his water bowl to keep him an all-around healthy cat.
There are 3 types of WW. I think the only difference is that it has been improved a couple of times. I chose the Dark Concentrate.
You have to dilute it A LOT. You would be surprised how much they tell you to dilute it. But a cat is such a small animal that it doesn’t take much. At first I diluted it by the amount the bottle says. After a few days of him drinking it, it built up in his system. He was already a very active kitten, but all of a sudden he started running all over the house for about 2 hours straight! No joke. And I noticed he wasn’t sleeping hardly at all…he was only about 8 weeks old so he was just a baby and had been taking lots of naps. One night he started running around again so fast and it was like his little body wouldn’t let him calm down. It crossed my mind that when I had been reading up about WW before buying it, I remembered somewhere it mentioned that it can increase energy! I called the WW website and the super nice lady that answered confirmed that it was WW giving him so much energy. I took him off WW for about a week and he calmed down to his normal energy level. Then I started putting the WW back in his water bowl very diluted!
He’s been a healthy, growing boy without any health problems since!
I just wanted to send this to let you know my experience with WillardWater in case it can help another cat.”
Hi, I’m Jenny Dean, creator of Floppycats! Ever since my Aunt got the first Ragdoll cat in our family, I have loved the breed. Inspired by my childhood Ragdoll cat, Rags, I created Floppycats to connect, share and inspire other Ragdoll cat lovers around the world,
I’m Jenny Dean, and I am pictured here with my two Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg. I met my first Ragdoll when I was 3 years old. Christmas 1989 my parents gifted my brothers and me, two Ragdoll kittens – Rags and Cosby. Rags, who lived 19 years, is the reason why I started Floppycats in 2008. Continue reading about me here.
