My dog also had terrible skin problems with Nutro brand. Once I stopped feeding her the Nutro, her skin cleared up and she stopped smelling yeasty.

I have used an equal amount (cup for cup, not by pounds) of baking soda and salt on my floors for years, It worked great when I had dogs, cats and people in the house.

Hi Shirley, I read recently that some vets prescribe over the counter Tagamet, also known as Cimetidine which is an H-2 blocker for stomach acid. I don't know what the dose is, but you could search "Cimetidine dosage for dogs". They have found that not only does Cimetidine block excess stomach acid in dogs who have mast cell tumors, (apparently mast cell tumors produce a lot of histamine, which in turn causes the excess acid) but it was discovered that Cimetidine has anti cancer effects.

Thank you EARTH CLINIC! This remedy saved me another $75 vet bill. At first sign of UTI I came to your website and started my cat on ACV. I gave her 1/4 tsp. diluted 50/50 with water, 4 times a day to start and after just a couple of days I could tell she was almost completely better. It stressed her out too much to just administer like that so I mixed it with meat baby food (and additional water)and she lapped it right up with no problems. I also gave a couple of drops of kidney tonic mixed in. I will keep her on a lower dose to maintain UT health. Thanks again!!

It's the Kaboom. Don't know about Oxyclean...never used it. I use the Kaboom for cleaning everything...don't use pesticides but use moth balls and other natural repellents. On a when I sprayed some bugs on my porch and wasps.. they drop like told me he thinks maybe a chemical in Kaboom paralyzes them if it doesn't kill them could be dangerous for pet birds, small cats and dogs if they get in it directly.

We have a ragdoll and a Norwegion ginger boy about 8 years old and the last two years he has got matted and this year worse than ever. I found that it was because he is lying in the long grasses and turning and twirling about is matting the fur. He has got quite lazy too. I have had to cut some of the matted bits off but making sure your fingers are holding the mat right close to the skin, then work off the above bits; and if any cutting would be to your self. and then get the top parts off by your means you mention. Oh, for the love of cats! Julie with thanks.

Hi I am hoping somebody could help my mum.

Her dog has mast cell tumours on her trunk and belly. At this present time they seemed to be on her skin. She is 9 years old and has had her leg removed due to cancer last year. Although I know mast cell tumours do not have a great prognosis does anybody know what could help. Id give anything a try.

She is a maltese cross and weighs 6.5kgs. Thank you in advance

I'm no expert, just a long time pet owner, so I will just have to guess. If the spray stung your dog when applied, it should be diluted. The fact that your dog is licking it off, means it is ingesting it, which is also supposed to be beneficial. Have you noticed an improvement in your dogs skin? I'm looking for something for my Pitt-bull; Peaches.

My Cooper, a mini Aussie, has develped a yeast skin issue slso. I took him to a regular vet, she said it was ringworm and gave me dime shampoo and topical solution. Told me to bathe him 3-4 times a week. Then I took him to a holistic vet I knew and had used in the past with previous dogs I had( but is almost an hours drive) and she said it was a yeast infection. She gave me liver detox pills to give him 2 times a day for a month. She also said to bathe him 2-3 times a week until I see him better, then slowly I can cut back. I also feed him a holistic dry fish dog food, and make my own solution to spray him with. It consists of colloidal silver, tea tree, lavender, calendula. The soap I bought to bathe him with is from the health store, it's Castille and it has tea tree oil as well as coconut, jojoba and more. He's had it for months, it seemed to be getting worse, which is why I went to the vets. The first vet treatment items scared me once I read the ingredients. He's doing a lot better. No oozing, no hair loss, less scratching and biting. But living in Florida, with heat and humidity makes it hard. I keep them at home in AC den. We're not outside walking, and even that has to be limited. My little one had a heat stroke one day. Hope this helps someone.

Bordetella Vaccination

8 days ago, we took our rescue pet to a vet clinic at a local store to get her first shots ever. We believe she was about 2 years old. Yesterday we put her to sleep. Her lungs and body filled up with fluid. Before being vaccinated she had NO HEALTH ISSUES. We had her for almost a year before taking her to be vaccinated. She was given the usual vaccines we get for out other dog but also a Bordetella nasal vaccine. We NEVER board our dogs. I wish someone could tell me what the cause was. I was not even aware she was being given the Bordetella vaccine. I don't think I will ever have another dog vaccinated except for Rabies. Our family is heartbroken.

Hey Bailey!

There are myriad factors at play here. Yes, ACV can help but you first need to consider diet -what are you feeding Niko? Read the ingredient panel on the bag of food and if you see grains that may be one of your culprits. Read up on UTI's and possible dietary changes to make:

I was reading earlier that a woman had a kitty with chronic asthma...and gave him 1/2 tsp a day of coconut oil and it cured him after 7 days. He threw up a bit...the toxins. Google Earth Clinic Cats Asthma...and the page will come up. It's the first one, under coconut oil.. Maybe it could clear him out?

Hope he's ok, Kriya
