Eosinophilic Ulcer - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


Eosinophilic ulcer in a cat can be a frustrating problem to eliminate. The ulcer results from a localized invasion of a type of white blood cell called an EOSINOPHIL, a type of white blood cell found in your cat's blood.

Eosinophils often invade tissues that are being physically irritated or are undergoing an allergic reaction. It is part of the immune response to fight infection but in this case, after the initial immune response it just doesn't turn off.

When large numbers of eosinophils invade the tissues locally, they interfere with normal physiological processes and as a result scar tissue can form.

Circulation is impeded, and inflammatory cells migrate to the area in an attempt to heal the damage.

Tissue destruction results in death of cells and, in the case of "rodent ulcer" in a cat, there can be a disfiguring ulceration of the upper lip. In severe cases the inside of the oral cavity and the lower lip may be involved.

The ulcer on his leg is a lick granuloma ulcer from the constant licking.

This is the treatment I recommend:

Rodent Ulcer:
to re-balance the blood

along with the Maritime Pine Bark as this is a major part of all my immune support programs:
