 Re: Don't Use Hydrogen Peroxide on Animal's Skin

Fri, 20 Mar 15 13:33:17 -0500
Posted by Om (Hope, Bc Canada) on 03/20/2015

Hi --- H202 = hydrogen peroxide is too valuable to shuck out. Try a solution of 1%. Three % is also good but try on your skin first. This percentage is also inhaled by humans.

I have always used H202 on my rescue animals. I would like to point out that today's salesmen for big pharm. always discredit H202 while it has been used for many years in hospitals and privately. The reason? H202 is cheap, effective for many kinds of needs. So it is being discredited and it seems, people swallow this deception. Even in my own personal experience, whenever I spilled 35% on my skin -NO PROBLEM. I have sensitive skin and just wash the white stuff off with cold water. Pain? hardly worth mentioning. Do research and you will find that H202, Borax, turpentine and kerosene are all discredited for the same reason. Caution is always advised but come on, see the real reason and the meaness of profit racketeering which is also called pharmaceutical terrorism.

All the best, Namaste, Om

 Apple Cider Vinegar for Cats

Thank you for the information. I run an animal rescue shelter, more for seniors and cats with behavior issues. one of my cats was squatting to pee every few minutes. He was drinking a lot of water, but still seemed to be straining. He has lost a lot of weight and my Vet feels he may have kidney disease. I have not done blood work as I have seen this many, many times. I will try the Apple Cider Vinegar and post again.

Marcia, see my reply re stomach cancer here on EC and go from there. Then do some reading on EC or otherwise online what is being done holistically for people with the disease. Cutting, burning and poisoning has only 3% success rate and afterwards holistic treatment is much more difficult.

Wishing both of you well. Namaste, Om

To Jenny ---immediately put the dog on ESSIAC tea - Four Herb, All roots attached and give a very small amount twice a day. Then see on EC what people can do for this and perhaps you can go from there. If you can manage to catch the dog's urine, give this in a syringe or dropper and read SHIVAMBU SHASTRA very carefully. It may cure the disease soon. Namaste, Om

 Re: CoQ10 in Dog's Diet

Hello All, I have a 15yr old terrier mix. She just passed out on me a couple days ago. Vet diagnosed a heart murmur, also said she had bronchitis and was given antibiotic. I'm wondering if it could be the food. I'm feeding her Blue Buf Senior soft and hard food. I really don't want to put her on all kinds of medicines. Has anyone found supplements that work? Any and all suggestions that have worked with your pets are appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Please, please for the love of God, do not use hydrogen peroxide on your animals skin. Especially when it is raw and open. It will eat a hole in their skin. My vet told me never to use that on your animal. Use a mild antibacterial soap and then treat with the ACV.

Bempierre & Rebecca, Sorry but you both kind of have be confused. I just finished up a 10 day treatment of 3 1/2 cap for our 95 lb dog as that is what I read on another site but yet Rebecca I see you say it would be more like 6 cap. Can either of you explain how much I should be given and for how long. I only have 22 cap left and realize I will need to purchase more but what to understand how many I need. Thank you

 Re: Dosage Needed for Black Walnut/Wormwood Tincture for Heartworm

Posted by Karlie (Greenville, NC) on 03/19/2015

Hey there I see you used the black walnut and wormwood oil to treat your dog for heart worms. How often did you give that to him? I've been trying to research it for sometime now and I can't seem to find anyone who tells you how much to use! Is it daily? Weekly? How many drops however often. I just found out one of my dogs has advanced heart worms and we rescued him at 3 1/2. He is 5 now and we just found it. :(

 Re: Side Effects from Vibramycin / Doxycyclin Given to Cat

Wed, 18 Mar 15 22:28:30 -0500
Posted by Cielle (Greece) on 03/18/2015

ok, so it turns out the the Vibramycin somehow caused an inner ear thing to get going in my cat... So perhaps it wasn't a "side-effect" as such, but didn't cover what was causing the ear infection and let it get out of control...

She is now on baytril and cortisone for ear infection - seems to have cleared up a great deal - but yesterday started collecting fluid under her skin at the base of her OTHER ear... And who knows what has caused all of this and whether she would have been better off on no medication in the first place...

I am going to wean her off cortisone and stop antibiotic soon... I just hope the ear infection won't come back and that the fluid will go away... and try to never ever put her on meds again - I have managed to avoid them for all of my other cats and dogs...

Under pet's ailments, Horner's Syndrome should be listed. It is often mistaken as a stroke but can very well be an ear infection and treatable.

Thanks!

 Re: Dog has Yellow Dandruff. Could it be a Yeast Infection?

Wed, 18 Mar 15 13:05:00 -0500
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 03/18/2015

Hey Barbara!

It could be a yeast infection. It might also be allergies or diet related.

First things first: read the ingredient label on your dog food; if the first 5 ingredients contain grain or corn, you need to upgrade the groceries to a grain free kibble. Changing the diet can do wonders, particularly for dogs who have grain or corn allergies.

Next, try alkalizing your dog's drinking water. Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda into 1 liter of drinking water and have this be the only drinking water your dog can have. After 7 days change the dose to 1/2 teaspoon and do this for another week, and follow this up for a 3rd week with 1/4 teaspoon dose of baking soda. You can keep your dog on the 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to 1 liter water as a maintenance dose, or stop and give a break and resume with the full dose at the first sign of itching or dandruff.

Yeasty dogs tend to smell - they smell funky. If your dog smells funky then it could be systemic yeast causing the dandruff, in which case you could consider Ted's Borax protocol for pets along with a bath as needed in Ted's Mange Remedy or Ted's anti-fungal/anti-staph solution.

Good luck and report back!

 Re: Bordetella Vaccination Feedback

Hey T!

I am sorry to hear about your JRT. The bordetaella [kennel cough] vaccine has been proven to not work AND your dog has been shedding live virus, potentially giving other dogs KC, for weeks now. The shedding of the live virus should end after 6-8 weeks, but since your girl still has symptoms of KC I would be careful about taking him out in public until she is well.

You might consider EC's hydrogen peroxide remedy for KC:

Hey Peter!

I DITTO your message :)

The medicinal value of essential oils can be overlooked in favor of a pretty scent. But studies have shown cinnamon oil can be effective against MRSA http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1010518209000523

Only consider the 'Thieves' blend used in the bird-beak face masks used by doctors during the Black Plague; essential oils are a powerful tool to have in any pet health too box!

 Questions About Apple Cider Vinegar for Dog's Skin Allergies

Wed, 18 Mar 15 11:10:01 -0500
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 03/18/2015

Hey Lesley!

The ACV has to be a special one, that can be found in many supermarkets. The key is to find a brand that is 1)raw, 2) organic, 3) unfiltered, 4) contains 'The mother' [active and live enzyme culture].

You can give your guy the ACV in his water or his food; try 2-3 teaspoons into 1 liter of drinking water or just put it in some wet food. Most do this ongoing, or 3 weeks on/3 weeks off.

One thing to consider with you guy since he is a blue/dilute is CDA - color dilution alopecia - google this and do some research to make sure you are not dealing with this genetic condition.

You feed a RAW diet - kudos! Also consider supplementing with Quercetin or yucca for inflamation, and also colostrum to help build the immune system.

lastly, do consider Ted's Mange Remedy or Anti-fungal/Anti-staph dip for the itching - dip as frequently as needed to keep the skin calm and itching at bay.

Hey Karen!

Yes, ACV is safe for dogs to take internally. A fairly typical amount would be 2-3 teaspoons into 1 liter of water.
