 Re: Sudden Deafness in Rat Terrier After Ear Infection and Teeth Cleaning

Hello, Melissa (Kansas City) ---

So sorry to hear about poor Pally's predicament. I wish everybody did research before giving pharma meds to anyone. My suggestion is two things:

Gotu Kola powder. It is a famous remedy that also improves hearing acuity. I would give the tea with a little honey. It also helps with anxiety.

Pure olive or sesame oil with garlic clove steeped in it. Warm drops before bed or also in day time. Natural doctors use this for children.

I feel so sorry. Don't give up and give about five times a week with some breaks. Three drops would be enough. Massage the bone behind the ear (tympanic). Talk to him soothingly even though he does not hear. Bless you.

Namaste Om

I don't know where to get colloidal silver here in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is not a country like the USA or Canada or Australia where you can get remedies for animals easily. It is very much a third world country and I have to make do with many things. I lived in North America my entire life, but retired here in Costa Rica because I have to live on Social Security and could not do so in California. So I am trying my best to save as many animals as I can with my little Social Security pension. It's difficult, believe me. Maxine

I have a 13yr old Chihuahua named Pally and he has suffered sudden and total hearing loss after being taken to the vet for an ear infection.

The infection was in 1 ear, he could most definitely hear prior to the visit, and the vet opted to put the Otipkack E in both ears to be safe.

It took about a week for me to realize he was 100% deaf. He can't even hear me whistle next to his head. I took him back to the vet and they were helpful, flushed his ears to make sure nothing was compacted that could be affecting his hearing but nothing. I had a perfectly healthy best friend, that is now deaf. I feel terrible. He seems to struggle on our walks, he's a little unsure of himself now....he get's under my feet all the time because he doesn't seem to know when I'm right on top of him. He startles all the time because things surprise him.

I didn't really have anything to add other than I wanted to document that I, too, believe this medicine, Otipack E caused my pets total deafness.

He had used the traditional Otimax before, the vet just said this would be easier. How I regret that decision now. Poor Pally.

Yes, I think you could use apple cider vinegar on your small dog. Always dilute. Use 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar. If skin is broken, use even less vinegar. Maybe 2 Tablespoons in a cup of water.

I just came across your article about your Chihuahua with his anal glands and noticed that you said you started giving him coconut oil. I actually have the same problem with my little chihuahua, We're at the vet literally every month to have them drained. (Which is such a horrible smell) I'm sure you know all about. But I'm just very curious about the coconut oil. Like how much do you give him, how many times a week? Has it made a big difference in his glands? Sorry so many questions just really trying to find a solution for my little man. Thank you so much!!

Do I Have to Use Distilled Water for Ted's Mange Treatment?

Posted by Maxine (San Pedro De Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica) on 09/29/2015

Hello: The water in the treatment, must it be distilled water, or can I use regular water from the tap? Also, the dog I will attempt to treat is a street dog. I have 5 dogs at home and I certainly will not bring the infected dog to my home. I don't want my 5 dogs to get mange. I don't know where the dog sleeps, so I cannot clean it's sleeping area. I started feeding the dog a couple of days ago and I noticed it's constantly scratching itself. I'm not even sure I can spray the dog with Ted's cure but I'm sure going to try. I'm trying to save this dog. It's been abandoned (like thousands of dogs here in Costa Rica). Wish me good Luck!

Hi Nikki!

I literally joined EarthClinic tonight just to post for the cat-lovers out there who are watching their sweet kitties suffer with these urinary crystals. My dear boy-cat, Jickitty, had the same problem, and while he initially responded to the ACV and turmeric treatment, it ended up not being effective anymore, and we ended up struggling with the problem again and again until finally there came the dreaded traumatic and expensive "unplugging" at the vet clinic...anyway with the help of my dear friend, who is very medically literate, we found that the very best treatment for my kitty was to go lots higher on the protein content and add extra purified water. I was a bit scared leaving out the vinegar, but we left out the ACV, and just opened a delicious can of chicken (don't drain/more fluids) and add extra water too! I added turmeric to address the inflammation.

The thought we adopted was realizing the paradoxical effect of vinegar, being acid in PH but having an alkalinizing effect on the body (and assuming cats are similar) we knew that the cat needed to be more acidic, and that the high protein in the chicken or tuna would do just that...Voila'! Jickitty hasn't had a problem since! Do this for every meal for about a week, and then you can pull back and give it once a day, and then less... We did pull dry food for the most part, but give him wet food with good salmon oil, turmeric, and occasionally krill oil, but we backed away from the ACV, which I know is a miraculous healer for so many ailments for people and pets in most cases, but when I deal with these nasty crystals in the urethra...well I go high protein and lots more fluids...

By the way, the cat loves the "juice" in canned chicken and canned tuna (Yep, meant for people) and he has never had a problem again...which has been about one year! Its a lot less expensive then the veterinary bill, and my cat is very comfortable and happy! Yay!

Best Wishes! -Yorkshire pudding

Mineral oil is a petrochemical product that has no business in bodies. Just recently I read of adverse effects of this oil on GreenMedInfo. For my cats I use coarse ground grains of coconut oil.

Always read up on things before you use them.

All the best .. and leave it on over night and check in the morning. Namaste, Om

Dear Gigi (Tampa) ---

Go online and visit Essiac West. The tea is very potent and has not only healed people but animals as well. Please read al the instructions well.

All the best and also remember, before it gets better, there maybe a flare up before the illness subsides. Give also a half tsp. of turmeric and coconut oil in the food. Diluted blackstrap molasses and beet root juice in the food. Also nutritious yeast from the health store.

Keep us informed if needed. All the best.

Namaste, Om

I am all for natural remedies and cures, whatever diet your dog can tolerate that is the most natural etc, but please don't stop giving your dog heartworm preventative, if you've ever seen a dog with heart worm, or had to treat a dog with heart worm, the treatment is TOXIC, and the prognosis is always guarded, much more toxic than the monthly dose of preventative, there are very few areas that don't have heartworm, and if you live in the South it's endemic. I live in NYC and we barely have any here, but I still give my dog heartworm preventative in the summer months.

One of my kitties has the type of long hair that mats easily (also a senior gal). I brush her at least once a day, but occasionally the mats form in spite of that. I prefer coconut oil to mineral oil as it is not harsh on the digestive system, tastes good, and works like a charm to soften the base of the mat. I just put it on my fingertips and massage it into the mat. The next day the mat combs right out without being painful. And coconut oil can actually be beneficial to the overall health of your cat. The best to you both.

Read my recent post. Ted's Mange Cure for Dogs

Sat, 26 Sep 15 17:34:38 -0500 Posted by Lynn (San Diego, Ca) on 09/26/2015

Also I like the Zymox enzyme for ear treatment that someone suggested..Dr. Becker vet on yeasty dogs on youtube I am following her plan..on my recent post, raw food diet (Answers raw and fermented goat milk and fish stock) and fermented goats milk fast..I also found a Homeopathic Vet in Lake Tahoe who you can contact him and posted what I am doing. Your dog has yeast and immune issues it seems to me..join the club..but you can heal her. I also am using SOURCE NATURALS WELLNESS TRANSFER FACTOR( it) AND IMMMUNE RENEW (recharging Mushrooms blend)BY NOW..FOR IMMUNE AND PLANT ENZYMES HUMAN OR ANIMAL ONES WITH EACH MEAL. And apple cider vinigar in her food. All these things will work given time.

I tried the "Answers Pet food" raw fermented goat milk fast for 1- 3 months. No other food. Works great for most dogs. Gets yeast and allergies out of the spleen, liver, and blood. If you read my recent post today I had to do more things after 6 months of the fast but it did do wonders for my puppy with other deeper issues she had. Now we are just finishing with the skin and yeast. Almost there. Thanks to Ted and the Earth Clinic and other nuitrition things and homeopathy.

My cat is on old and chubby pre owned cat. He is about 8 years old and suddenly has these huge matted knots by his back side.

He has long hair and will not let me comb or brush him since these mats appeared. Any suggestion on how to apply the oil?

I am willing to try ACV for my 12 yr. old lab mix. He has ear infections this time of year. I think his hearing is almost gone. Hoping this helps.

Will the ACV solution lay in my dogs ear and cause further infection?

Dispensation of vinegar. How did you give it to your cat? Dropper or in food? My cat doesn't like wet food.

Dear Maxine, you have a kind heart. Anything you do will help the poor thing. NMaybe you can mix some worm tablets into something tasty and give her some yoghurt and maybe some colloidal siver in her drinking water. That will all help her. Good luck and keep us informed. I will be interested to know how you get on
