Our cat Howard started having trouble urinating when he was 3 years old. He was diagnosed with Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) and even after experimenting with multiple canned foods and prescription diets, Howard was becoming a regular at the ER. We received more bad news when Howard’s urine became too acidic from the prescription canned food the vet gave us. He had developed oxalate crystals in his urinary tract and would need surgery. Perineal Urethrostomy (PU Surgery) was recommended, which meant they would amputate Howard’s penis and this would allow for a larger opening for him to urinate the oxalate crystals out. The clinic assured us that they’ve had great success with this procedure and that it was far less invasive than if they were to remove the crystals by opening up his abdomen. We said yes to the PU Surgery. Howard made it through the procedure, but when we brought him home from the hospital, he was still having trouble urinating even while on pain killers and was also showing signs of atonic bladder, meaning he wasn’t able to fully empty his bladder on his own. We were warned that he may need to have his bladder manually stimulated for the rest of his life. We realized that Howard needed constant supervision to prevent his bladder from becoming too full, and because my husband and I both work full-time, we made the decision to have Howard hospitalized so he could have the 24/7 care he needed. Howard was catheterized and given an IV. He was on multiple antibiotics, pain-killers, medications to relax his urethra and medications to help him empty his bladder. He was hospitalized for about a month. We visited Howard daily during his hospitalization. The care team would only allow us 45-60 mins with him. He was not doing well such a drastic change of environment, but we knew of no other option at the time. He had stopped eating and drinking, was becoming very thin and quit purring. Our normally cheerful and affectionate young cat was now growling at vet techs and looked as though he wanted to throw in the towel. Eventually Howard started eating in our presence. We continued to visit him daily and he continued to eat and gain strength. Howard eventually came home, wore all sorts of e-collars, recovered from multiple UTIs and I remember doing a happy dance when he was finally off all his medications. He was peeing normally. And we our total vet bill came to well over $10,000.- – – New problems emerged – – -I never wanted to have this happen again. I started researching cat food and found a canned food with very little additives. Howard ate this for about a year. He had no urinary issues… but then he started throwing up his food and struggling with constipation. It wasn’t until I started working with another detoxification specialist (for my horse) that I realized that Howard too needed to switch to a raw food diet and get on an herbal protocol ASAP.- – – Detox journey begins – – -We started feeding Howard raw chicken breast with his old cooked canned food and got him eating 100% raw within a couple of weeks. Now it was time to add the herbs. We found we could easily disguise the herbs by mixing them with a spoonful of pre-ground, raw cat food. Howard did show minor detox symptoms upon switching to the raw diet, including itchy skin and lack of energy. These symptoms lasted 3 weeks. Afterwards he was back to his normal active self, was sporting a very silky coat, the vomiting had ceased and his bowel movements became regular. Everything was looking really good! We knew we were finally onto something! After being on a raw diet and herbs for about 5 months, Howard started to have trouble urinating again. I freaked out. How could this be happening? He’s been doing so well up to this point… I was going over and over in my head trying to think about what I could of possibly have done wrong… what had I missed?
I had forgotten that he was detoxing. And that old symptoms appear as the body heals. Howard’s body was telling us that he ready to heal on a deeper level… and I totally didn’t see this as the wonderful opportunity it was. All I could think about was how I didn’t want to have him hospitalized or on medications again! We went to the ER and had him manually expressed and I told the staff that I did not want any lab work done nor did I want any medications. They looked at me like I was crazy. I didn’t care.
I contacted Tamra and got her up to speed on what we had been doing and she was so helpful and patient with me and all my urgent late night texts and questions. (Thank you again, Tamra! You are such a blessing!) Tamra suggested we could try fasting Howard for 24 hours by soaking raw liver in water and then offering him the liquid to drink if he so desired. I had never heard of doing something like that before but I trusted Tamra.
The first 24 hour fast was a success! Howard drink a tiny bit of the liver water, but for the most part he just rested. The entire experience of fasting our cat was far easier than we had thought it would be and best of all, Howard was peeing normally afterwards!
We continued to feed Howard the raw diet and in addition to his other herbs, we also give Howard Dr. Morse’s Parasite M formula, just in case of a possible UTI. Another week and a half went by and Howard started to have trouble urinating again.
This time we knew exactly what to do. Howard completed his second 24 hour fast and this time he passed two small bloody globs in his urine! It was incredible! He celebrated by running around the house and playing. It couldn’t have been more clear that this discomfort had left his body!
– – – Conclusion – – -I am so grateful to Tamra for empowering us with this incredible knowledge and being so supportive. Also thankful for Dr. Morse’s amazing herbal formulas. Everyone should have these in their medicine cabinet!
To anyone considering detoxing their pet, please do not be afraid. It’s a natural process and there are so many wise people out there like Tamra who can hold your hand through the process and help you understand what to expect.
I have no regrets about detoxing our cat and I’m thrilled to see him purring, playing, climbing trees and going on all sorts of adventures with such confidence and curiosity. There is no doubt in my mind that he is happy to be alive! Trusting in nature and her infinite wisdom was the best gift I could possibly of given sweet Howard. And I’m positive he would agree.
When our treasured French Bulldog BumbleBee began having scary symptoms suggesting bladder or kidney issues, I immediately sought out help from the Dr Morse fan club group on Facebook- someone had pointed me to the revered Tamra Rose and after reviewing her incredible profile on her website I hit her up immediately. Our sweet Bee was basically peeing small puddles of blood, unable to walk, and squawking in pain. I feared she was dying when I drove her to the vet… low and behold her tests came back positive for a very severe bladder infection and she was prescribed a very strong antibiotic. I hated the idea of having to administer something that I knew in my training and naturopathic education would cause a blowback in her health, so I stuffed the prescription deep in my bag and told the Vet I wanted to try alternative means. She said it would be ok, but that I probably wouldn’t have long to “experiment”, as Bee’s infection was severe. And she was quite skeptical that I could get rid of the infection WITHOUT the antibiotic.
Meanwhile online, the Amazing Tamra Rose came to our rescue with clear, concise, and detailed advice and a protocol and diet that perfectly suited Bees needs. We couldn’t believe how helpful and generous she was with giving us this valuable and free information to a family she never met. Tamra was always quick to respond to my every concern and her level of knowledge and experience was quite impressive.
Long story short, with her guidance we managed to get Bee on a completely fresh raw diet, herbs, and her terrible Bladder infection cleared up within a week. The vet was shocked and asked how I did it and I was walking on clouds that whole day. We continued to watch in amazing Bee’s improvements in her coat, her skin folds, her flexibility, her mood, her energy level, her stride and confidence, etc. She’s a 7-year old, but we could swear we had our little puppy back.
Thank you so very much, Tamra Rose. You’ve helped open our eyes to a wonderful world of vitality for our fur baby where we can help her not only to heal with raw foods and natural resources, but thrive and enjoy her life to the full extent. ”

“I am sooo grateful for Tamra Rose!
My Seamus, my love has been with me almost a year longer than they said and I owe it you. Seamus and I owe you soo much for helping with his detox. He was given a death sentence 8 months ago. Now he just turned 9 and acts like a puppy! You made a believer out of me. I was scared to death to take him off the pills the vet prescribed. So glad I did. I never knew dogs could even eat fruit! I need to eat everything Seamus eats and I know I would feel better. It kills me now when I hear what garbage people feed their animals.
“Tamra Rose, simply said, is a life changer. She meets you where you are and guides you through the health and healing process with her own special brand of compassion and humor, without judgement and an abundance of enthusiasm and patience. She genuinely cares for the well being and healing of both people and animals and it shows in her commitment and positive approach.”

HYPO-THYROID REVERSED. NO LONGER NEEDS SYNTHETIC MEDICINE.
“My 13 year old Husky was diagnosed with hypothyroid and the Veterinarians put him on Soloxine a synthetic thyroid medicine. He was on them for 5 years until I began detoxing the acids out of his body : a process with raw food diet, glandulars, veggies and fruit. Only two months after starting the program I was able to wean him off his meds completely. His blood work came back that his thyroid was perfect. He has a good weight now and other issues with his back and joints have completely turned around. The doctors don’t believe how it was possible. They told me he would have to be on thyroid medicine his entire life. Boy, were they wrong. I’m so grateful for Dr Morse’s Cellular Botanicals.”
“After being diagnosed with cancer and going through surgery to remove the mass that his first vet said couldn’t be removed (always get a second opinion), Saxer started on a detox program designed by Tamra to help him get through this health crisis. He’s been on herbs and a special diet for 10 months now and is doing amazing. I’m so glad that the detox is working and he’s his normal happy self. I recommend detoxing any pet that has an illness or has to go through surgeries, to help them recover and live a full and healthy life.

Tamra has helped me with two dogs I have in my rescue:
“Tenny was on medicine daily for his collapsed trachea and on antibiotics monthly for constant infections caused by chronic coughing. After detoxing him, he no longer needed the daily meds or the antibiotics, his coughing diminished which then stopped him from getting infections. He’s been off all meds for over a year now and is doing great for an old little dog.”
“Edie came from the shelter with a horrible yeast infection all over her body, she was swollen everywhere and itching like crazy. We started her on a detox and raw/grain free food and she’s coming a long great. She has been detoxing for about two months and her skin has improved greatly, she’s still got a way to go, but once all the toxins are out of her body she will be as good as new.
I recommend anyone with a dog that is having a medical condition no matter how minor or major to contact Tamra, I’ve recommended her to many pet owners through my rescue and my dog training/walking business.”
“Hunter came into our rescue with kidney issues, skin infection, allergies, and fatty lumps all over his body. We began the detoxification process with a raw food diet, herbs and glandulars. Two weeks on the protocol we did see toxins begin to eliminate through the eyes and stool in the form of green mucus. We stopped the benadryl and let the herbs do their magic. After two months on the protocol that Tamra suggested, his skin infection cleared up and all the fatty tumors on his rear and back have practically disappeared. He looks 2-3 years younger now. He is a thriving and happy senior. Thank You.” ~ Jill Gasparac Los Angeles CA USA
I cannot begin to thank Tamra Rose enough for helping me with my 2 horses and my kitten, my dogs and lastly my family. I continue to learn so much about eating healthy, and feeding my animals healthy as well. If I connect with her with any question she is a wealth of information and the few things like with horses (which she is also becoming very knowledgeable with), she will research and offer links to healing answers. I have seen it working first hand. My 16 hand beautiful 8 yr old thoroughbred had a bad fall during a snowy day and his right back side hit asphalt. Thank god he didn’t break or even sprain anything, but he developed a watermelon size hematoma. Tamra went right to work! She came to my horses aid asap with a bucket of fresh raw veggies and fruits, schooled me in how to best feed him and then made up herbs to specifically target his body and almost instantly the hematoma was shrinking. Everyone at my barn was shocked at how fast he was healing. This wonderful horse also has melanoma and that is now being targeted. I know he is in the best of hands. I have another horse I just took on as a rescue and he has a serious hoof issue called navicular. Tamra is helping along with my Farrier to heal him as well and he is already doing so much better…. off all pain meds, Yay!!!!!
“One night just recently I gave my 7 month old kitten an oral flea Med and he has such a bad reaction I thought I was going to lose him. Tamra was called and she told me exactly what to do with herbs she had given me for my horses and how to dose for my 7 lb kitten and within 20 minutes he was already better and by the next day he was fine. She also told me how to support his kidneys, lymphatic system and liver with the toxic Med still working in his system, by setting up a plan for the following 2 weeks. I trust Tamra implicitly. She is there for you morning, noon and night if you are in need. Tamra, I will be forever grateful to all you have done for me, my family and my animal family…. I’m a believer! You had me at “I can help you!!!”
