What is FCV Protect?
FCV Protect is a FDA-registered natural remedy containing 100% homeopathic ingredients that should be administered for feline respiratory health and immune system support – especially in vulnerable kittens and pregnant queens. This remedy is completely safe for kittens and pregnant queens – with no risk to the unborn kittens.
FCV Protect is taken internally and may also be very helpful in providing systemic and immune system support. It is presented in two convenient forms, dissolvable granules or spray, and either form may be taken depending on your pet's preference. Both forms are safe and easy to administer without fussing or fighting. The pleasant tasting granules are simply sprinkled in a favorite treat or on your pet's tongue and rapidly absorbed in the mouth, while the spray can be administered directly into your pet’s mouth or sprayed on their food or water.
FCV Protect is also an excellent companion to DetoxPlus™, which supports detoxification for overall liver health and general wellbeing in pets. Used together, FCV Protect and DetoxPlus can assist felines with flu symptoms, such as sneezing and nasal congestion, and help eliminate harmful toxins to keep your cat in peak health.
All Native Remedies homeopathic products and biochemic tissue salts are manufactured in a FDA and GMP registered pharmaceutical facility under the supervision of qualified homeopaths and responsible pharmacists. Individual ingredients are listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS).
Viral support for your cat
All cats are exposed to different viruses during their lives. Just as for humans, the younger or the older the animal, the greater it’s susceptibility to illness. When a feline’s immune system is battling a virus, the mouth, nasal passages, sinuses and upper airways can be affected, breathing can become hampered, and airways can become increasingly blocked and congested.
Conventional vaccines are not recommended for young kittens or for pregnant queens, leaving these cats at a greater risk for ill health. Symptoms may be mild or severe, and are unpleasant for the poor animal. They are often similar to that of a head cold in humans, such as sneezing, nasal discharge, fever, rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes), runny eyes and salivation. Ulceration of the tongue and palate are also regularly seen in cats. Lameness in cats, also known as limping syndrome, can also be a symptom. Feline health can be further hampered by secondary conditions.
The natural way
When a cat’s immune system is fighting foreign invaders, treatment consists greatly of supportive care. Meticulous cleaning of the eyes and nose must be done. Force-feeding is carried out if the cat isn’t eating and fluids will be administered to balance fluids in the body especially in the case of a fever or flu. Antibiotics may also be given if needed.
Natural remedies can have an important role to play in lessening common symptoms and promoting quicker recovery in a gentle, safe manner. There are many remedies that can quickly help to relieve common symptoms of cat flu such as sneezing, coughing and other respiratory problems.
Alternative forms of common vaccines can also be safely used to provide your cat with systemic support for the future – especially for kittens and pregnant queens who should not receive the conventional vaccine. Remember to consult your vet for details.
What are the ingredients?
FCV Protect is a 100% homeopathic formula and contains the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage: Allium cepa (30C), Borax (30C), Phos (30C), Pulsatilla (30C).
- Allium cepa (30C) is a remedy that is well known for its supportive effect on the respiratory tract. Allium cepa also has a long history of use in maintaining clear eyes and noses.
- Borax (30C) is a white crystalline mineral, mainly used for mouth ulcers and cold sores. Cats that would benefit from this remedy are usually impatient and easily irritable – with expressions that are anxious and earnest. They are easily startled by noise, and their sleep is easily disturbed. Physical symptoms relate to the mucus membrane of the mouth, nose, gastric tract and genitals.
- Phos (30C) is mostly derived from North Africa in volcanic regions and is commonly known as calcium phosphate. It is commonly used for severe coughs and a sore throat.
- Pulsatilla (30C) was used medicinally in Ancient Greece to cure weepy eyes. In Roman times it was used for eye conditions and tooth hygiene. It is also used for cough and colds, congested catarrh and blocked noses.

How long until I see results?
Results may vary, due to a number of influential factors - and some cats will respond sooner than others. When used preventatively, FCV Protect should provide immune system protection and support within the first week.
Most of the time improvement should be noticed within 5-10 doses. Over time, FCV Protect will act in a supportive capacity to systemic balance and harmony.

How has FCV Protect helped others?
"My cat Alaska just had six kittens. I was worried about their susceptibility to illness, seeing as they were so young and fragile. I found FCV Protect on your site, and even my vet thought it was great that they are all going strong – THANK YOU."
"Our seven-year-old tabby is pregnant. Last week she began sneezing, and we could tell she was incredibly congested and blocked. My wife and I were very worried – we didn’t want to give her [anything] because she was carrying kittens. We were told about FCV Protect and gave her a dose right away. I am so glad to report that she is doing fine now! No more sniffles and she has a sparkle in her eye! Many thanks indeed. "
"We have 4 indoor cats and one of them has terrible allergies. About a month ago he was sneezing as much as 30 sneezes per episode several times a day. He was so exhausted from all this he slept all the time. I saw the FCV Protect advertised after doing a search on the internet about cat sneezing. I am so glad that I ordered the 3 bottles that were on special at the time. We started using the product on all 4 cats when we received it. We got a bonus by doing this. The poor sneezing cat quit sneezing in just a few days and the calico female that always throws up her food in less than a minute after eating, quit throwing up! How marvelous. We were having trouble getting the granules in their mouth and gave up that quickly… so when I feed them I just sprinkle a little bit on all their dry food and they get some of the medicine several times a day. I am so thankful for this product. It helped all the cats and 2 with acute problems. I will continue to keep this on hand."
