I SO agree; this is one reason why I use fresh ground, high quality pepper on almost everything I serve as food to my family. Pepper/piperine enhances absorption so much and our foods are already so depleted, anything we can do to increase nutrients is a significant benefit.

Was the someone a grandma? (Old wives tales are often true.) When my year old daughter hadn't been able to keep anything down in days and our doctor shouldve been charged with neglect, my mother-in-law called from miles away. She told me to get the white of an egg, add a wee pinch of salt and to stir it (not beat) gently, then to give it to my daughter. It coats the stomach lining and was what probably saved my child. My son's life was saved with goat's milk yogurt so mixing the two together seems like pretty sound advice as we, and even our creatures, are all unique and sometimes respond to what doesn't work for others. Thanks for reminding me. Ive got a small pup down with parvo and am getting the egg white now.

Can anyone share more about symptoms of DM, especially what might happen when we're out walking/exercising? What to look for and how it may be different than a disc issue or arthritis? I have an older collie that's having problems and wonder if it may be DM? We've been to the vet and are treating hip inflammation holistically have not done blood work up or xrays yet.
My dog Shylo was diagnosed with a tumor on his hind leg that the vet suggested we have removed before it got any bigger to the tune of $700.00. I applied warm compresses first then the Castor Oil. Held it on him for a couple minutes. Twice a day for a couple weeks and it is gone.
I would definitely try CBD oil. Not sure about the THC product, as I understand it is not good for pets in most cases. If you put it on his leg he would likely ingest it. I can recommend a facebook group for CBD oil and pets.

Have you tried Shapley's MTG oil? It treats and heals a variety of skin conditions, whether caused by fungus, bacteria, or parasites. It can be found in the equine section of feed stores or Tractor Supply. I would suggest looking at other equine treatments, too, as horses are prone to many problems that can be difficult to treat. (Obviously, horses don't lick themselves as much as dogs do, so make sure to put a bandage over the treated area if there are any ingredients a dog shouldn't ingest.)
If you can't get Shapley's right away, sulfur (or anything with sulfur) might help. There are various hair treatments (often available in the "ethnic" hair care sections of almost any store, including WalMart) that contain sulfur.
Cured parvo with nux vomica, little white pills in the homeopathic section of the health food store. Squirt unsalted beef broth into the dog's mouth to keep up hydration. I did this 4-6 times daily with my lab when she was one year old, and she lived 15 more years. Cost total: $5.
I'd suggest using colloidal silver but the best person to ask is Steve Barwick...he is great at answering questions.His fb page is Steve Barwick's silver secrets community.Or check out www.thesilveredge.com
I found that diatomaceous earth and tea tree oil were not effective for a flea infestation. Luckily, I tried lemon juice spray and was amazed by how effective it was.
I took a few small whole lemons, skin, seeds and all, and blended them with some water (not too much) and strained the mixture. I spray some on my hands and rub it into my kitty from head to tail. I also spray it outside and indoors. Smells great. She licks it off and is perfectly healthy and much happier now that the fleas are gone.
Plz read my post under tea tree oil for more info.
Flea season exploded two months ago and I found that tea tree oil did NOT help in the least, so I would like to amend this rating to either 1 or 0 (that would take more experimentation). Possibly back when I posted this initial review, colder weather was setting in and I mistook the seasonal decline in flea populations as a sign of tea tree oil's effectiveness for flea control.
I was treating my cat (10 months old) daily with a drop's worth (placed on my finger and then applied) of tea tree on the back of her head and another at the base of her tail, along with food grade diatomaceous earth rubbed in all over. It really didn't seem to show much improvement. She had bald spots where the fleas were eating her and for awhile, the only remedy was bathing her 2x a week, where I would remove dozens of fleas at a time.
Luckily, I did find what worked to my amazement! Homemade lemon spray. Throw a few lemons (skins seeds and all) into a blender with some water and strain into a bottle. Apply the spray to your hands and rub into your animal's fur all over, from her furry cheeks to tail. She licks it off and is perfectly healthy. Occasionally, I'll find one lethargic flea that is easy to pick off, but it works exceptionally well. Also, spray the lemon everywhere you want, outside and in the corners of the room. As always with any new protocol, start off with small quantities on your pet to make sure there are no adverse reactions.
I am working on this Lemon Spray recipe (possibly adding other beneficial flea repelling ingredients) and will re-post when I am satisfied with the results.
EC: Rating changed in your first post to a 1 star, thank you for the update!
