Hey Flora!

Certainly you can try ACV for your dog. You might also consider Essiac tea for its cancer fighting properties as well as turmeric in the food.

Hey Patty!

You can use Ted's Mange remedy on open sores. I say this because I have used this remedy many, many times while I myself had cuts and sores on my arms and hands. I did not experience any stinging or burning so having the remedy on my open cuts did not cause me any pain.

The scabies mite lives 3-4 weeks on your dogs skin as larvae and then adults. The adults lay eggs that hatch anywhere from 3 to 10 days after they are laid. If this were my dog I would try dipping her every other day for 3 treatments and then once per week after that for an additional 5 dips/weeks.

Read up on the mites:

Homeopathic Psorinum [potency 30c] may help fight the mites from the inside out. Additionally dosing baking soda in the water to alkalize her system and balance her PH, and alternating with the borax in the water to help fight any systemic yeast in the GI tract will help with her immune response. I dose my dogs with baking soda and borax and drink it myself too.

Dosing for baking soda is 1 teaspoon per 1/2 liter of water and have this be her only drinking water available. Some dogs balk at the change in taste of the water so I usually start with 1/2 teaspoon per liter for a few days and work up to the stronger dose; they seem to accept the water once they get over the change in flavor. After 1 week on the full dose I will drop it down to 1/2 or 1/4 teaspoon per liter for an additional week.

Dosing for borax is 1/8 teaspoon per liter of water and this as the only drinking water.

Borax dosage for 1 week. Then 1/2 dosage in week 2. Stop for 1 week. Resume.


Borax dosage for 4 days, then no borax/water for 3 to 4 days. Continue on/off schedule until ailment clears.

Fighting itchy mange mites is stressful; make sure your girl has top quality groceries with no grains or dyes in her food or treats. If her skin seems to be drying out due to the frequent dipping, consider a restorative oil treatment on alternating days - Murphy's Oil Soap [original formula] is good and putting a few drops of lavender oil in will help relax you both!

Neem oil is supposed to work against the mites by making them sterile. It can be good for the open sores as well. I find it spendier than the borax and HP but if you feel it is indicated I would go for it.

Good luck and please report back!

Will Ted's Remedy Help Dog With Sarcoptic Mange and Open Sores?

I have been reading posts with interest We jave a 4 month old lab mix rescue diagnosed with sarcoptic mange by vet. We were given a chemical dip to use once a week for 4 weeks. The dog now has absolutely NO hair and has open sores. We just cannot afford to take her back to the vet at this time althiugh I am debating having her put down. This is a last ditch effort for me. Can we use the borax/hp solution on a dog with open sores? What about neem oil? She has suffered enough. I do not want to make it worse. She's an intelligent awesome dog & I would hate to put her down. Any help appreciated.

Hi, my 14 going 15 yrbokd Tibetan spaniel is suffering from perianal carcinoma. After some palliative treatment of meloxicam, his digestive system went all whacked, leading the vet to prescribe anti nausea and anti vomiting drugs which further complicated the prob causing a full bloat of gas distribution in his tummy that required surgery to remove the contents.

Vet advice is go off the anti vomit and nausea drugs and give multiple small feedings.

I am now so tempted to try him on apple cider vinegar just to help him eat better. Should I start start or is it too late ? Pl help us

[YEA]  After taking Newbie to the vet his skin scrape came back negative for mites. He was diagnosed w/a skin infection and and is on antibiotics. As for the sore on his tail, it looks like some kind of bite. As for pokie, I will keep up w/the baths and dipping for a few more weeks and his paws look a little better. Thanx for the reply Theresa

Topical aloe vera gel will heal and cool the skin. Please layoff the chemicals. They will hurt, not help, over the long run.

Advice Needed for Dog Who Suddenly Stopped Barking

Thu, 25 Jun 15 08:06:07 -0500
Posted by Eva (California) on 06/25/2015

My dog stopped barking probably within the last week, but I am not sure. I noticed that he was silently trying to scare away a racoon, normally he barks like crazy when he does it. Now I can't remember when have I heard him bark or howl last time but definitely not in the last couple of days.

Any advice? Thanks.

Let's use some common sense. When I noticed that my 15 year old Snowdog was peeing alot and having accidents I brought him to the vet. He was diagnosed as incontinent....then six months later it was so bad I brought him to another vet. Turnes out that he had a nasty was put on antibiotics for 30 days!!!! I was disgusted but followed through. I make all homemade meals for my dog and use several home remedies. My message to all pet owners is, Always bring your dog to the vet to know 100% sure what is wrong with your pet. Sometimes we can treat them without meds. My snowdog had a problem with his bowels 7 years ago diagnosed by a vet and I took the natural alternative. I've been using proactive measures on my pets and never had a vet expense in 15 years up until this infection. Please just at least get a sure confirmation of the pet's problem and then you can choose an accurate treatment at home in most situations.

Aloe vera gel topically; George's aloe vera juice internally and stop the carbs. Better protein diets exist, just look for a pet store with a freezer and open it - someone can help you from there.

I have very good experience with homeopathic medications. Aconite C30 generally works, but if you can give more details there might be something better. Does the discharge smell bad? Is the ear red and/or sensitive to touch? All details help to choose the optimal remedy.

Apply a Topical mixture of aloe vera gel and organic turmeric and stop the antiobiotic cycle by building up the immune system with probiotics (Natren powders and- Bio- K Liquid both found in the cooler at the health food store). Please change your pets diet to raw protein or human food, literally. Aloe vera juice and/or burdock root to cleanse the blood.

Questions About Hydrogen Peroxide Remedy for Kennel Cough

Posted by Grneyedlady (Bowling Green, Kentucky) on 06/24/2015

I hope someone can help me, on may 29/2015 my neigbor and I went to our local humane society. she adopted at the same time both our dogs had kennel cough. I was trying the home remedies and came across a remedy that contained food grade hydrogen peroxide and honey and lemon juice. Thing is I can't remember the dosage {amount of each} regarding my little pom Harley as I said May, 29 2015 he had kennel cough then and I told the "Humane society" the next day or 2 had to find someone who was kind enough to take Harley and I back over there. And I quote:

"Take him back home and wait it out. It will run its course in a week or 2."

Guess what. Harely still has it and he's and much worse. I hope someone can give the amounts for that home remedy so I can help my baby. Today is the 1st. time he is refusing food and water. thanks for your help. P.Colston {patrishacolston60 (at)}

Hey Adriana!

Do you know why your dog has been experiencing loose stools? What I mean is, I often know when I walk my dogs in a certain swampy area they get loose stools from picking up a giardia bug; I then treat with the appropriate home remedy. What often works for me is 2 tbsp grated raw carrot, 1 tsp C&H brown sugar and 2 tsp raw shelled sunflower. If that doesn't bring instant results I boost that with 1 capsule echinacea and 1 tablet of vitamin C. This combo usually does the trick and I feed it 5-7 days am and pm with their food.

But loose stools for a month from an unknown reason would have me considering a vet visit. Are the stools grayish/bluish-green? Very often that indicates a serious problem in the GI tract such as colon cancer or a liver disorder.

Hey Patricia!

I give baking soda in water to my dogs [1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon in 1 liter of water] with no harmful effects; the key is to make sure it is fully dissolved and not fizzing before pouring it into their water bowls. The benefit is the alkalizing affect of the baking soda to help balance their PH.

Like anything else - water for example - Baking soda in large quantities can be toxic.

Thuy, no I'm not giving him the Whole Body Support right now. He's only taking the CardioPlus, Cataplex E-2 and ubiquinol (I just started giving this to him because its a good antioxidant and good for so much more than just the heart, including my dog's periodontal disease). And, he's also taking 2 herbal remedies prescribed by my Chinese vet for his liver and his eye conditions.

Could you tell me how much pumpkin you use? My dog had had diarrhea for over a month and I had tried everything, pumpkin too, but maybe I am not giving her enough.
