It is NOT true that garlic is bad for dogs. It's all about dosage. My dogs eat garlic every day and have been for years.

It's one of the best natural antibiotics available.

Hi there- to help cure the actual infection, there are herbal drops you can use such as Echinacea and goldenseal and you can find them on Amazon. Another thing to do to flush out the kidneys is to boil dried corn silk and flax seed. Boil separately. Take a good amount of corn silk and boil until water is very dark yellow- strain and set to cool. Take 1/4 cup of whole flax seed and add 1/2 cup of water. Boil until a thick clear syrup is formed. Strain into a container after cooling. Add the corn silk water and dilute the flax seed syrup. Shake until blended. Store in a glass jar in the fridge. Give via oral syringe several times daily. This will return her kidney levels to normal. Good luck!

 Re: Natural Remedies for Mammary Gland Cancer in Cat?

Every time my dog went into heat and had a faux pregnancy- her mammary glands would get swollen. They would get inflamed because she would lick them. While this is not exactly holistic even though it is herbal and made in Thailand- I used Tiger Balm diluted with some Vaseline and massaged it into her glands. I would then loosely wrap her up in an ace bandage to keep her from licking it off and to further irritate them. This remedy works every time and pretty quickly. Just do it twice day. You don't have to use much as their mammaries are small. Usually, all symptoms are gone with in 3-4 days.

Hello Helen,

I apologize for a tardy reply. I have thought much about your kitty. I believe a raw/home prepared diet may be the most helpful at this time.

  Re: Castor Oil Packs for Malignant Tumor?

HI Sigmund or Anyone who could comment on effective treatments against Intra-Nasal tumors I am very sorry about your doberman's condition. I am in a similar situation with my chihuahua, Despite the medical report and aware of the regular outcomes, I am hopeful for a positive turn around. I am wondering if you tried the castor oil compresses and/or the Budwig protocol? If so, I would really appreciate if you could comment if you tried any of these alternative therapies, or may be you tried other treatments? What did you experience during the process of the treatment/s? What worked, what didn't? Anything that worked well that you might recommend? Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, as I understand this may be sensitive topic to share. Thus far, God has sustained my little dog, he was in critical condition a week ago, his main problem is obstruction of the airway, miraculously he is surviving thanks be to God. In addition I am using food as medicine. I feed him a vegetarian/ketogenic diet using extra virgin raw coconut oil, I make organic green juice and supplementing with organic wheat grass juice powder, cat's claw extract, probiotics, turmeric, vit D, and a multivitamin. He has shown improvement, nasal mucus discharge has greatly decreased and is breathing better. I am wondering if the castor oil compress would help or not? or if the Budwig protocol worked for you or not? Thank you again. --Martha

Vitamin C, Turmeric, Manuka Honey for Pyometra

5 out of 5 stars

My 10lb, 13 y/o bichipoo suddenly developed signs of closed pyometra. She did not get up out of bed to watch me get ready for work and declined her daily walk and food. Her nose was very warm and dry, she was vomiting and her tummy was beginning to extend. I went to Sprouts and bought Manuka Doctor 24+ Bioactive Manuka Honey, Mega Food Daily Turmeric Nutrient Booster Powder (with Tart cherry and Black pepper), Signature Care (Safeway Brand) Chewable Vitamin C tablets 500 mg, Boiron Arsenicum Album pellets, and concentrate Trace Minerals Drops and one bottle of plain Pedialyte.

I ground up two vitamin c tabs in my mortar and pestle, added two 1/8 teaspoons of turmeric powder, the 3/4 teaspoon of Manuka honey and added 1 tablespoon of pedialyte and mixed in a condiment glass bowl until smooth. The trace mineral drops were to recharge the pedialyte after opening as Pedialyte loses it potency after two days of opening and not used.

I administered the full amount via oral syringe. I gave her one pellet of arsenicum 1 hour after the oral solution. I administered oral solution and single pellet 2x a day. We are on day 2- her nose is wet again, her tummy back down and she is eating and running around playing with her sister. We are going to continue the treatment for at least another 3 days. I am going to pay to have her fixed soon as I can before her next heat cycle. This was the first time in her 13 years that this has happened even though she has never been bred. I wouldn't be able to see her go through this again as I know next time we might not be so lucky. But thank you to Earth Clinic and all the contributors here who share their knowledge and experience. You saved Twinkie!

Posted by Gail (New Zealand) on 11/06/2015: Hi, my small dog has allergies, she coughs and coughs for a long time and for a few days at a time, she has had it for years just wondering if apple cider vinegar would help. Thanks.

I use wild cherry bark, slippery elm bark or honey (one at a time, not all three) when my mini poodle starts coughing. The honey I just put on my finger and she licks it off and the coughing stops right away. The other 2 supplements come in capsules so I open 1 up and put half of it in her wet food (they don't taste bad) twice a day. The honey stops the cough right away and is a quick fix. I use the other 2 supplements when I think she may be having a problem and after about 3 days, she's okay. Don't know if these supplements would work for allergies but we had some very bad air quality this year and she starting coughing so I gave her 1 of the supplements and after a few days she was fine.

 Re: Boric Acid as Eye Wash Solution in Dogs

Posted by Denise (Florida) on 09/18/2018

You can use a highly-diluted boric acid as an eye wash for both dogs and cats. Please note that Borax is NOT boric acid - that is a common misconception. Do not use Borax as an eye wash.

Here is some info I copied: Boric acid as an eye wash solution helps by treating the bacterial infection and soothing inflamed eyes.

To make boric acid eye wash, use pharmaceutical grade boric acid powder. For mild infections, dissolve 1/4 teaspoon of boric acid powder in one pint of hot water.

  Treating Glaucoma in Dogs - 4 Year Update!

Posted by Annalouise (Covington, Va) on 09/18/2018

To Kevin, Alexis & others who have questions, see my updated post in May 2017. Re his diet: at the onset he was eating (beef) dry Alpo, which I discontinued immediately. Now I use Science Diet dry Active Longevity for senior dogs as a side if he cares for any dry chewing. The canned dog food is Purina brand Smart choice, as long as it is chicken and has vegetables (carrots) included, and I make sure zinc is on the ingredient list. Homemade, organic or whole diet with chicken would be good choices too.

I have also discontinued the 3 prescription eye drops as they did not help any more, appeared to me to aggravate the eye condition. I continue orally with the Ginkgo Biloba and Bilberry, both in liquid form, both approximately 1/5 of eyedropper at least once a day. In the beginning I did twice a day. There is most likely some Vitamin c in these herbs. Even though he has lost his sight in right eye, I will continue the herbs in hopes of saving sight in left eye for his lifetime. The glaucoma eye is shrinking and getting a light gray covering which his regular vet, who also does my dog's acupuncture when needed, said it is normal and referred to the covering as scar tissue. His pressure stays around 27 which is down from the higher 40/45 range he used to have. No longer need the glycerin for spikes, but it did work very good for that. I did not get the pressure checked often cause I already knew he had high pressure due to glaucoma. And I could tell by looking when the eyeball was larger or more red & tight, and his behavior too, when to give the glycerin to him orally for spikes early on. I noticed his eye pressure was higher when he was being seen by a different vet than usual.

Baked chicken from deli (remove skin) or Perdue brand chicken breast pieces (no antibodies) sold in packages at grocery store fed to him at least once a day.

Never used a collar or choker chain around his neck after onset of glaucoma and began using a harness exclusively. The only vaccine he gets now days is for rabies account it is a law in my state.

Chewy remains normal in every way and most people who see him do not notice his eye unless I tell them. He will sometimes bump into things on the side where he has lost vision so have to be careful of that. For outside flea/tick prevention, I dust his cedar shaving bedding with DE in the summer months and occasionally dust inside bedding and his dry food. His appetite is very good.

Hoping my posts will help others to try alternatives.

Theresa, salt kills the toad quickly. We have then in our yard and we do a nightly Toad check. Any toads we can find are salted. While I know we will never get rid of all of them, this method has dismissed them greatly, the Great Dane goes out at night only under supervision after the yard has been checked and only to potty.

My brother's little cat was 11 years old when the vet said "no hope". He switched her to Halo brand wet food ( I don't know if you have that in England) and she lived to be 21! I have done raw and cooked food with my kitties so I would suggest preparing food for your kitty. The most important addition is apple cider vinegar (acv) with the mother (Bragg's is the brand we use here). You could add 1/4 teaspoon to her food daily and offer 2 bowls of water: one with Apple Cider Vinegar and one just plain water.

Helen, keep with the Reiki and your love as your fur baby knows you love her so much! Sending love and light


  Re: Tumor on Chest of Dog

Posted by Jim K. (Nsw Australia) on 09/13/2018


I have a little Pomeranian 14 years old, who lately diagnosis with a Thymoma/Tumor in his chest. Tumor is soft with fluid and combined with cysts and filled his chest cavity pushing lungs to one side, heart on the other and presses against his trachea and restricts his breathing. He has this consistent choking cough (4-5 times a day) that lasts for few seconds but there is nothing coming out. He is OK after coughing. If I give him Apple-cider vinegar and, or turmeric can the tumor be shrunk to reduce the pressure on his trachea to improve his life style?

Please, can you help? My little cat is 11 and has been suffering with her kidneys now for a year but seems to be getting worse. I took her to the vets over the weekend and they flushed them through but the didn't really make much difference her count was off the chart. They suggested she may to be put to sleep. in the meantime I have been giving her Reiki and lots of love and she seems to have perked up and is eating and drinking even purring. she has gone outside and started to clean herself. Can you please recommend anything I can give her to help her kidneys.

Thanks, Helen
