Gastritis cat wet food
Food for the cat in case of gastritis must be very digestible and cooked by you (beef or chicken boiled in mousse without salt), baby foods are essential (I always bought the Hipp baby foods, they are gluten-free, without onion and with very little salt.
If you offer pet-food try ALWAYS to prefer the moist to the croquettes (inflam the gastric wall, even the medicated ones)
Follow the vet’s advice carefully and continue feeding your cat with very digestible food.

Gastritis cat dog mycotherapy
Very rare and delicious mushroom in Asia is called “monkey head”. Its therapeutic effects are most prevalent in the gastric mucosa.
Changes in mucosal permeability
In the course of intestinal diseases including gastritis, the mucosal permeability increases and causes vomiting and diarrhea, in a healthy condition we have a normal intestinal permeability, while in the course of various intestinal and extra intestinal diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, the syndrome of irritable bowel, we have a greater intestinal permeability, dry foods rich in toxins increase the permeability of the intestine, therefore it is important to immediately change diet and supplement with mycotherapy. Studies have shown that pre-treatment with Hericium extract protects the gastric mucosa and inhibits the infiltration of leukocytes from the gastric wall. Leukocytes, in particular neutrophils, are a major source of inflammatory mediators and can release ROS such as superoxide oxidants, hydrogen peroxide and myeloperoxidase. These ROS are highly cytotoxic and can induce damage to the gastric mucosa. (Wong, Jing-Yang, et al. “Gastroprotective effects of Lion’s Man’s mushroom Hericium erinaceus (Bull .: Fr.) Pers. (Aphyllophoromycetideae) extract against ethanol-induced ulcer in rats.” Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine 2013 ( 2013).
Also called “Lion’s mane” (lion’s mane) or “Monkey’s mushroom” (monkey mushroom), Hericium has anti-inflammatory and healing properties, it is traditionally used for all gastric problems but also to promote the maintenance of normal cognitive functions.
