I read in your post that you added tea tree oil to the treatment. I have read that tea tree oil is toxic to cats so please look into that. I am glad that your cat is doing better.

Would Blackstrap Molasses and Turmeric Help Akita With Pelvic Tumor?

Wed, 18 Nov 15 21:45:44 -0500
Posted by Jules (Gympie) on 11/18/2015

Hi, just wanting some info to help my Akita. He is 11yrs old and has just been diagnosed with a tumor on his pelvis on his left hand side. It is quite large and has eaten some of the bone away. He finds it hard to get up sometimes and his left leg quivers with pressure. The vets have told me it will only be a matter of time. Can you please tell which is the best way to go naturally? I have read that blackstrap molasses and turmeric twice a day may help? Would this be something I could try or if you have any suggestions??

I contracted scabbies from my cat Mugsy who I thought was just allergic to fleas until I broke out in a rash. The medicine Permethrin the Doctor prescribed me is lethal to cats. Once I treat her with DE then me with the presribed med.. Will I need to do anything to bedding clothing furniture etc. to keep them from coming back? If so.. can I sprinkle this DE powder on stuff? The "Red Lake" has bentonite and is not safe for human consumption. Does that mean that humans can't ingest it? Or come in contact with it period?

Also.. She's had this for many months. The only reason I finally got them is.. I was a week behind on getting her Frontline flea medicine because I'm on disability and had no money. I felt horrible because she was scratching so profusely.. so I held her and was scratching her bumps myself with my fingernails! Lastly can another human catch them from me? I know they're not easy to catch from a feline since she's had this for over a year and I've never caught it from her and I hold her and pet her all the time.

My little dog is suffering from bladder stones. She had to have surgery to have them removed in August. The last couple of days she seems to be having issues with urinating again. My vet has recommended she eat the prescription dog food. My question is …… how much ACV should she take daily? Thanks!

Hi Lola. I have a shih tzu/schnauzer mix and went through the biting of feet and scratching and everything else. I tried using Selsun Blue dandruff shampoo that is a selenium sulfide solution that is found in the pharmacy. I would lather him up and leave on for a couple minutes before rinsing and after a few times it really made a difference. I would also lather up his feet more often and then rinse them off. I also changed his dog food to a single ingredient blend of duck and Bartlet pear and alternating after a month to lamb and apple. The blend available to us in Canada is made by Orijen and it is under their Acana label. I find when looking for dog food it is wise to look for one with the least ingredients and keep chicken or chicken by products and wheat and soy out of it as they can be allergy producers. Hope this helps. Mike

Can I use the ACV/H2O mixture on my 4 1/2 lb 10 week old terrier puppy, or is she too small?

I am a "retired, " Vet Tech yet will be back to open a Pet Rehab. I utilize both Eastern and Western Medicine on my Rescue kids. In a nutshell my Doberman may have a MCT. 0;(. I am going to an Oncologist for a second opinion this Thursday as our DVM so far has managed to introduce blood into his bladder from a cysto , preformed with an US. This led to costly , not needed Rads to check for stones and over use of Abx, and after a C&S with no diagnosis, I used ACV and guess what= gone. Now I found a tumor. Brought him in for a FNA. Now the more I read my books speak with collegues I realize it could be inflammation yet when aspirated that alone can release Histamines, one MCT & a few questionable Spindle Cells. The report came back AGAIN as improper collection and no definitive diagnosis. So frustrating. I have started the Diphenhydramine BID as it makes total sense and is reccommended prior to Sx to aide in the metatasis if it is even a MCT or malignent. I also picked up Famotadine as I read A LOT on many side effects of Cimitidine. Including elevated ALP( liver enzymes.) Well many Dobermans AL(K)P sits high, so to let all know I have had great success with Milk Thistle with ALL my Dobermans.

Yet on to the Castor Oil..I tried it today, yet I am inquisitive and wonder if it falls off or ulcerates, do you still NOT have dirty margins? Also can't this cause more Histamines to be released? My question is has anyone had any testing post Castor to make sure there is not any dirty margins left? Grazie, Blessings. As of now it is only .9 mm barely a cm. I despise surgery (Sx, ) unless absolutely needed for life, yet also worried that the CO could create what could be benign into Malignent? MCT's can arrise from inflammation and trauma as well as environmental factors. My guess is the latter that is another story about our toxic area and home. 0;(. We are all affected.

I think the idea behind feeding dogs raw food or homemade food is that those options are much closer to a natural animal diet than commercial foods. canines don't eat corn gluten or flour and they can't cook.

Hey Shannan,

While it is possible you are seeing a side effect of the rabies vaccine, it is also possible your dog got exposed to distemper or parvo while at the vet's office. I would also contact the vet and let them know that your girl is experiencing a side effect and ask for their direction ... and also ask if there were any parvo or distemper dogs in the office that day. If this were my dog I would get some activated charcoal into her ASAP and begin treating for parvo.

  Re: Baby Oil for Matted Cat Fur

Hi Brenda.

Two of my kitties are long- haired, though only one has the problem of matting. I brush her every day without fail, but sometimes she still develops them, especially at the base of the tail. I use coconut oil rather than mineral oil (which is the basis of baby oil). Coconut oil is a very healthy oil for animals (I give it to my dogs every day). Your kitty will inevitably lick at whatever oil you use, so this is a win-win. I just dip my fingertips in the oil and massage it into the mat. Later in the day the knot brushes right out without any discomfort to the kitty at all. All the best.

Brenda, yes you do, but only use a small amount in each tangle, better still get a can of olive oil or coconut oil and spray each tangle then comb the latter. A lot less messy.
