Let’s read the pamphlet that I was given at the Animal Hospital about FLUTD – Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease and discuss it from a naturopathic perspective.
Please note that modern allopathic medicine differentiates a sign from a symptom in the following way: a sign is something that can be observed and recognized by others, a symptom is something that is noticed and experienced by the patient. Doctors and practitioners notice signs while patients notice symptoms. Using the term sign versus symptom only began in the 20th century when medical doctors began using devices that enabled them to identify and analyze information unavailable to the patient (such as by the use of an x-ray or stethoscope). Many naturopathic practitioners continue to use the traditional word symptom because they focus on causes of symptoms and the focus is not on who notices or recognizes the sign or symptom, the focus is on what is causing it and how to eliminate it.
