03/30/2011: Diamond from Salisbury, Ma. Usa: "Well I can truly say I had a tiger by the tail. My kitten was a stray and a mess, I didn't know what she had, I just figured she was itchy until I found this god send of a site that showed me what mange really is. I first tried Apple Cider Vinegar with some results, but then I found this using borax and peroxide message an decided to try it, I was not accurate on the amount of time but I tried approx. an hour & a half, I also tried mayo. Prior to the borax & peroxide then I tried to give her a bath, it seems as though I got most of the water then she did, after her bath I put vit. E on her, she was fighting and kicking for dear life with all fours straight up, thankfully she did not scratch me, also I used surgical gloves. She is now sitting close by me washing her self off, so I decided to check her fur for any signs of mites, and of course there are still red spots rather then red with black dots almost as before, I really don't know if this process needs more work as she is losing trust in me and it's a huge fight for her. I use a steamer humidifier for her as she is congested, I even have to wipe her snotty nose like a little baby because it was stuffed up. All I can do now is pray it did help immediately or try it again later, but I do need to give her a bit of a rest in between as her system is weak. She is looking at me with those big eyes of her as if to say AND I trusted you. (chuckles) More later on in the week when she is doing a litle better. Thank you every one for your input.... And much thanks to Ted that made all this possible."Replies
[YEA] 05/16/2011: Diana from Boston, Massachusetts, United States replies: "This reply is to Diamond from Salisbury, Ma...
It sounds as if your cat is having problems with infestation. Fleas? Ticks? Mites or lice?
Have you tried food grade diatomaceous earth as a treatment? Look into it. You put in on their fur and in their food. It kills the mites, lice, fleas and ticks on the body. Its all natural. Make sure you get the food grade Diatomaceous earth. You can add a little dusting of it to their wet food as well. If you reasearch it you will see that it is a natural form of getting rid of these problems on pets, in the house, on your carpets and on your garden. Buy only the food grade. Constant flea infestation and the irratation it brings can cause your cat to have trouble breathing, stuffy nose, runny nose.. As well as mange. (loosing hair on their body. ) I just bought some myself after all my reasearch on it as an alterative to collars and other things they sell that are dangerous to pets to control any infestations. I am convinced it will help with many of their problems. I hope it works for you!"
02/07/2012: Col from Denver, Co replies: "Thanks Diane, I have heard of the diatomaceous earth and did not realize that they made a food grade also- where to look for it? - saw the regular in a green house once."
06/29/2013: Larrycatsmom from Ballina, Ireland replies: "DO NOT use diatomaceous earth meant for water filters! It has been heat treated and can kill animals if ingested. Food grade - animal or human is great, I've even used 'pest grade' for a short while - as long as it is NOT heat treated and IS safe to add to grain/foodstuffs - ask the manufacturer. Having said that, I love the stuff! I've used it on cats, dogs, horses, birds, and people; internally and externally. Rub it into the carpet and leave it along walls to kill fleas, ants, roaches... Most any insects. It doesn't work immediately, give it a few days - it'll kill almost any worms or insects The only danger to animals is that it is very drying so be careful not to make too much dust with it as it can irritate eyes and lungs.
I also use it in the garden but carefully as it will kill beneficial insects like bees, so just don't put it near the flowers where bees may go. It won't harm worms in the soil and will actually help enrich the soil when it washes off in the rain. That's the biggest problem using it in the garden!"
07/08/2011: Crickett from 29palms, California: "Just a quick lesson in the difference in a poison and over indulgence. The roach dies when it eats, EATS Boric acid mixed with sugar. It gets a fatal dose of changed digestive PH. Boric acid is not poisonous to roaches, it eats it from the inside due to overinjestion, it is like a human drinking a gallon of hot sauce. A little is great on food, but go to far, make it too hot and you are going to get a stomach ache, drink a gallon and you will end up like the roach. So a note to people using Boric acid on pets, Check the Ph of the solution you are going to use to see if it is compatible with your pets PH, if you do not know what I am talking about or do not have the means to do so, that is a clue that you are not qualified to use this method safely, so don't! Same goes for Vinegar, remember it is an acid too, and there are differing acidic levels in Apple cider vinegar, it is usually listed on the bottles.
My suggestion is use the lowest acidic content apv you can find."
06/15/2012: Silvia from Toronto, Ontario, Canada: "I have a 3 years old male cat that deesn't seem to recover from FCV. He was in the hospital for 1 week and seemed back then that he was doing good, that was 3.5 months ago. We got homeopathics remedies to treat him and the other cat that got it as well but was only sick for 1 week with mild symptoms. The most affected are his hind paws and lately is trying to walk on the 2 front paws only. The simptoms are changing all the time, a few days he is grinding his teeth and the mouth is swollen, some other days is one paw or the other, now acctually both hind paws. This makes me think he is reinfected all the time. Homeopathics don't seem to work, I gave him MMS activated, no more than 1 drop a day, now I introduce the DMSO, we had the nosode as well back 2 months ago, lysine, Lugols 1 drop. What is to be done? Sometimes he won't eat or let us touch him, it has been more than taxing on us."Replies
06/18/2012: Nh Gardener from Sanbornton, Nh, Usa replies: "For Silvia from Toronto re. Cat with FCV--Please try food grade diatomaceous earth (DE) in his food, 1/2 tsp. Once a day, increasing gradually to rounded tsp. 2 X/day. If he won't take it, apply some to his fur and paws so he'll lick it off. DE absorbs and eliminates toxins from the body. Also, give him 1/2 tsp gently melted coconut oil in his food, increasing to 1 tsp. Again, if he won't eat it, apply to his paws or legs so he'll lick it off. Good luck."
11/15/2012: Suzanne from North Plainfield, New Jersey, Usa replies: "Hi, Just saw your post. I too have a kitty with FCV. When I first adopted him his tongue was one big open, ulcerated sore. He could not eat. Had to force feed him 4-5 times a day with syringe. Besides making him an all natural, grain free raw diet, I gave 500mg Lysine daily for 2 weeks as well as Daily Reiki sessions, 1/2 to 1 hour 3x's a day. (I'm a Reiki Master). That was 1 1/2 years ago. He's fine now. I regularly put 1-2 drops of organic, raw with the mother ACV in his water bowl. Now he gets 250mg of lysine daily. If he starts to show signs of a weakened immune system I may give 1/2cc Astragulus (Liquid Chinese herbal) twice a day for a few days. The Natural Cat by Anitra Frazier is a book I often refer to for help. A friend refered it to me and it's been a Great resource."
12/16/2013: Ursula from Tobyhanna, P.a.: "Cat with eye infection/ Cat peeing all over my house
Cat's eye lids are red and eye is swollen - what can I use? I also have a 12 yr old cat that I have taken to the vet numerous times and he has nothing medically wrong with him but he pees all over my house. I have the catgenie litter box that cleans itself very well but I need help here. Can you give me some advice?"Replies
12/16/2013: Theresa from Mpls., Mn replies: "Hey Ursula!
You can try the ACV remedy for conjunctivitus from EC:
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar - 2 Teaspoons
- Filtered Water - 1 Cup
Mix 2 tsp of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar in a cup of water. Dip a cotton pad or soft cloth in the solution to wash the eyelid inside and out. You can place a few drops of the water mixture in the eye as well. You should repeat this treatment every few hours until the conjunctivitis is completely healed. Usually that will take from 2-3 days.
You can also try the advice from another poster [scroll down for original post]:
12/08/2013: Bluejade4 from Houston, tx: "I used a drug called Pink Eye Remedy for humans on my cat. You can get this at any drug store. My cat is 1 year old and she had eye redness with swelling very teary and little yellow puss like discharge at the corner of one eye. And just redness in the other eye. She was not playing much and would hide and sleep most of the day. I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar and the Neosporin they helped a little but was not effective enough. I bought the pink eye remedy cleaned her eyes with a wet warm face cloth. Held my cat down had my daughter drop 2 drops per eye. I did this twice daily for three days. My cat is all better now she is playing and is her old self. Her eyes are clear bright and normal."
For sure if you try these remedies and see no improvement in 3 days then you should consider taking your cat to the vet.
For your 12 year old consider treating for feline cystitis with ADV and homeopathy:
Also read up on Feline Lower Urinatry Tract Disease here:
It may help to get several litter boxes for your cats - so 3 boxes for 2 cats and try to vary the location if possible. If your cat has an area that he soils regularly try putting a box there.
Cat's with FLUTD aren't trying to be naughty when they pee all over the house - they are trying to find any way to escape their discomfort and some with chronic conditions come to associate the pain the the litter box, hence peeing everywhere *but* in the litterbox."
03/05/2012: Jolean from Hialeah, 33010: "I Just would like to know what type of chlorophyll you can give your cat. The pet store by my house only has chlorophyll for dental care. Could I go to my health food store to buy some chlorophyll for my cat? If yes, how much should I give them? Thanks for your help."
[YEA] 02/04/2010: Jinmarpet from Midvale, Utah: "My cat stank up my house until I started giving him a mixture of one drop liquid chlorophyll, eight ounces milk, and twelve ounces filtered water."
EC: Hi Jinmarpet, is this remedy for cats with cystitis? Thanks!
10/02/2013: Goldencat from Akron, Oh replies: "I'm shocked. My cats would stink up the house if I allowed them milk all day, diluted or not. Sure to cause stinky loose stools the next day, thanks to their Siamese sensitive digestion. The alleycat isn't so touchy.
I notice my cats' pee is strongly ammonia smelling if they eat dry food. This is due to: dehydration from eating kibble, and more output from drinking extra water to make up for that, plus concentrated urine. P-U.
I'm a raw diet advocate after having a cat with FUS, a baldder stone, urinary blockage twice... All between ages 5 and 8 years old. Changing from high grade kibble based diet drastically changed all the cats' health for the good. This lil guy never had anoter ER trip or sediment in the pee. His chronic dermatitis also cleared!
However, if you don't want to find a nutritionist approved recipie to make, or can't afford the premade raw diets, then feed a wet diet only. Preferably with real meart as first ingredient and NO "animal digest" in it (don't ask - if you must ask, search online for articles on pet food ingredients - truly disturbing). Am betting the cystitis leaves for good, and the pee is less concentrated, thus less smelly.
Imagine: how crunchy-dry are mice? Birds? Kibble stresses a pet's digestive system, and urinary issues are just one result."
03/05/2013: Dan from Bucharest, Romania: "Hi, My 12yo 13 Lbs cat has been diagnosed with chronic candidiasis to his sinuses. He's on a cure with Fluconazole, but I also started giving him coconut oil last week, gradually increasing the dose to 1 teaspoon. Since Sunday, he gets the diarheea, and Sunday was the first day I gave him the full teaspoon, and without food (by rubbing its face with the oil). Should I cut back on the dose, and give it with some food again?
07/05/2013: Bohnney from California, USA replies: "I cringed and my stomached knotted up when I read your post. You know not a thing about how to feed a cat, its nutritional needs, nor even how to treat a cat humanly. Rubbing the cats face in oil? 'Feeding' the cat oil instead of food?
Are you serious... ? You need to find your cat a more suitable home with better care and make sure it is far away from you! Although... I see three months have passed since you posted. I fear the cat has long since gone to kitty heaven. So sad..
On that note, probiotics are in order to help balance out the gut. A SMALL amount of oil -- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon -- may be acceptable -- unless the additional calories are taking away from much more necessary nutritional needs.
Too much oil for anyone and anything will cause diarrhea! Does that mean we stop feeding ourselves? Of course not! It means stop it with the oil and get back to eating a healthy *balanced* diet!
Ask yourself what cats eat if they were to run free out in nature. THAT is the guideline needed for what to feed a cat or any animal. A good food is necessary. A meat based source of protein formula with NO GMO anything in the ingredients.
Study up on how to feed a cat... BEFORE taking on ownership of one... If common sense fails one to not feed a cat a diet of oil because of a yeast imbalance.
One more thing, by depriving your cat of its daily needed calories you are setting up the cat to get 'Fatty Liver Syndrome' (Hepetic Lipidosis). It can be a real killer...literally."

07/20/2012: Loveurpet from Los Angeles, California replies: "Greta if you can't get your cat to eat the coconut oil you can try putting it on her body. I read many places that cats skin is very absorbable. Plus she'll end up licking it off.

[YEA] 04/22/2008: Sharon from Pace, Florida: "I wrote in the past that I used coconut oil to treat my cats Rhino Virus and ringworm. For myself I take 1 Tbs orally. I have used in on my hair before I wash it. My hair is so soft afterwards.It's great for dandruff. As for my cats I treated the ringworm topically and the rhino virus was treated orally. My cats seem to really like it. They get about a tsp orally. They like it liquid so I run it under hot water. My dogs get about 1 Tbs and they love it too. It has helped Yeast on the skin and allergies. I work as a groomer so I try it for several skin problems."
07/27/2013: Linda from Lauzerte, France: "One of my cats has a swelling on the side of her jaw. She has been scratching it so that there is now no fur there. I have been treating it with colloidal silver, but cannot do this more than once a day as she hides herself away the rest of the time. She does seem to like being treated and it does not seem to be painful. She also wants to drink a little CS. I am wondering if I can add a little DMSO to really get the CS into the problem area. Would this be safe for her?"Replies
07/30/2013: Om from Hope Bc Canada replies: "Linda from France. Can you shave the area and put on healing clay with a drop of oregano oil and /or castor oil pack secured and wearing cone while doing this? MMS would work, too. Do not use plastic on top but breathing bandage for toxins to escape. If there is even a small puncture visible under the fur, it could be an abcess. If so post and I will give instructions. Om"
10/02/2013: Linda from St Amans De Pellagal, France replies: "I did take her to the vet who gave her antibiotics and she was fine. She was drinking CS of her own volition too."
10/02/2013: Goldencat from Akron, Oh replies: "I'd say go to a vet immediately. The cat may have a bad tooth that needs removal, and/or a closed abcess from said dental problem. They don't show discomfort much, so a hygenist should examine the cat's teeth to rule out a serious problem. Alternatively, it may be a harmless fluid filled cyct. That would indicate other natural treatments, such as homeopathic and maybe accupuncture for an underlying systemic imbalance. BUT some cats just won't sit still for accupuncture - don't be upset if yours is one of those. My cats are calm enough to allow it - the older one really felt better and soon cooperated every visit - he remembered it helped him. (after urinary blockage, and with sinus congestion)
Colloidal silver isn't topical in this case - you have no wound. Dose the cat with about 1/2 tsp every 4 hours with a good nanosilver product. (all silvers aren't equal) Assuming an infection, and not a physical mass is the cause.
I use Sovereign Silver, as does my holistic vet and local naturopath. You may want to compare their lab studies against the competition, and the explanation of what makes different silver colloids different.
Link to Sovereign vs Mesosilver, with germ images showing relative effectiveness on MRSA. Plenty of other info: http://www.natural-immunogenics.com/silver_comparative_analysis_detail.php?CompetitionAnalysisID=44"
[YEA] 03/21/2009: Kate from Hervey Bay, QLD: "colloidal silver has been wonderful, i take about a tablespoon neat, i hold it under my tongue as long as possible, gargle then swallow it. i have'nt been near a doctor in almost 6 months and it was only two years ago i almost died from respirtory problems. i even give it to my cat, i took her to the vet thinking she had cat flu, the vet told me she was ok but she continued sneezing, coughing and vomiting. now nearly 3 months of giving her colloidal silver she is much improved. love...it"Replies
[YEA] 06/30/2009: Nic from Sydney, NSW Australia replies: "Colloidal Silver restored my cat's health.
My girl cat was very thin and was vomiting her food. She had become crabby and tense. She was also scratching her ears a lot and losing fur on her belly and legs. A month ago I began giving her colloidal silver by syringe in the mouth, starting with 1/4 teaspoon twice a day, working up to 1/2 teaspoon twice a day. It has worked a treat - she now eats all her food at one sitting, keeps it down, and is gaining weight fast, scratching is much better and fur is growing back. She is now much more relaxed so she must feel a lot better.
Giving the solution by mouth all the time is a bit tedious after a while so I have started pouring the dose onto her tinned food. However, I think giving it into the mouth is probably important for really sick animals as it gets absorbed into the bloodstream faster."
10/02/2013: Goldencat from Akron, Oh replies: "Spoke to staff at Sovereign Silver on a naturopath's advice... sadly more is known of dosing dogs than cats, but colloidal silver is benign.
Had a 6mos siamese kitten showing signs of early FIP, a 100% fatal virus. Nothing to lose, and zero treatment options. Started him on about a tsp 4x/day, and as often as every couple hours when he spiked a fever of 104f overnight. Fever down by morning, antibiotic seemed to work better to fight the infection detected by labwork. (with no external cause or warning) Drastic GI symptoms and fever, high white counts, weakness. He had had two such crises before I tried the silver - would seem ok a few months and then relapse.
Kitten rapidly improved. IDK the lifecycle of the calci virus (I think it's same family as FIP) but assumed a week long incubation as for other contagions. Kept up the silver, reduced dose to 3x/day. Kitten did not fight this, seemed to know it was helping. Eventually perked up when I said "silver time" for his doses. One year later, no more scary relapses. Cat specialist "is pulling her hair out" and doesn't know what to think, but is "relieved".
Note that colloidal silver reaches a concentration in body tissues and stays there for days... IDK how long, the site may say. Point is, it saturated tissues so that the virus cannot function, and it perishes. (Yayyyy) Same mode of function in other complex organisms - humans, horses, dogs, fish... And benign. Used to be put in newborns' eyes to keep from post-birth infections. Did I say it's benign?
Also - low quality silver has a color, and larger particle size, which *may* in time cause bluish skin in people, but, hey, that's extreme dosing. It's not toxic even then."
04/25/2014: Bluebaker from Nyc, US: "My cat has been having tremors, startles and various other symptoms such as insatiable appetite without gaining weight. We lived in a place that was vastly saturated with many toxins, Round Up, the herbicide among them. Two of my other cats who were outdoor cats, died - one of pancreatitis, the other of acute kidney failure.
I've taken this cat to countless vets and no one has been able to help. She's had every test under the sun done, from liver to kidney analysis, urine, blood, CT, x-rays, thyroid and more - and no one has been able to help. I do think this is all related to her exposure to this herbicide.
Is there any way to detox her and repair the damage? Her appetite is ravenous which I believe based on what I have researched on this particular toxin that there is a disruptor that effects specific enzymes, and these enzymes is what she is craving. But it's not productive because no matter how much she is eating it's not being absorbed. Your input is important and we are grateful for any insight on how to help her heal from this.
04/25/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn replies: "Hey Bluebaker!
My first thought was Activated Charcoal for your girl. You can buy it at most drug stores or online. I would try 1 teaspoon into 1 can of wet food and see how she tolerates it.
Also, read up on EC's detoxification page for other ideas; Bill from San Fernando has many insights into detoxing: http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/detoxification.html"
[YEA] 06/28/2009: Kelly from Seattle, WA: "Digestive Enzymes, Salmon Oil for Cat's fur loss and skin problems
Our indoor/outdoor cat had been scratching and chewing his fur off the back of his legs and underbelly, and had bumps and sores on his skin all over his back and sides as well. His fur had also lost its lustre and looked ragged instead of smooth. We'd fed him high quality, high protein no grain organic foods for years, so we didn't think the food was the problem. Vets, even a naturopathic vet, told us he must be allergic to fleas and we were encouraged to constantly spot treat him with prescription treatment. This never really caused the problem to go away and it would sometimes get a little better, only to flare terribly until he lost all his fur on the backs of his legs and belly, and in patches all over.
My husband went to the natural pet food store to pick up his food and got into a conversation about our cat's issues with the person at the counter, who gave him some handouts about fleas, skin and fur problems. They contend that itching and fur loss was often the result of insufficient digestive enzymes causing an inflammatory reaction in the skin and other systems. They recommended, besides a raw food diet which provides the correct live enzymes for your pet's digestion, adding digestive enzymes to wet food as well as salmon oil.
For a cat, that's 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. of enzymes (specially formulated for pets) and a few squirts of salmon oil added to any serving of food. Our cat was slightly reluctant at first, but quickly adjusted and we fed him this mixture to half a can of high protein no grain orgarnic wet food a day. Within days the itching stopped, within weeks his coat regained it's lustre and smooth appearance, is soft to the touch, and grew back more lush and full than ever. They also cautioned that the spot treatments were probably crippling his immune system and making him more susceptible to fleas. We have stopped those, and he hasn't shown any signs of itching or fleabites."
[YEA] 02/26/2008: Kathy from Morrice, Mi: "My cat broke her back 10 weeks ago and hasn't walked since. Her spinal cord was not severed but only had limited use of one back leg. I rubbed DMSO mixed with aloe vera 3 times daily and within 3 days, the leg with no nerve responses started twitching and she started moving it. On the 4th day, she stood up twice. Still not walking but getting more use of both legs and making progress. I don't believe it was coincidence. I started rubbing on peroxide over back today to oxygenate her system and help with regeneration. DMSO is miraculous and FDA should not stop it's use."Replies
[WARNING!] 11/01/2008: Aja from North Plainfield, NJ replies: "Be very careful with DMSO (Dimenthyl Sulfoxide). As a chemist, I've used DMSO and it is a great compound because it is an EXTREMELY effective solvent.
The reason that the FDA is against DMSO for home use is because it basically dissolves almost anything and takes it along for the ride. Since it is readily absorbed into the skin, anything dissolved in it is also absorbed. This can be dangerous if you inadvertantly come in contact with a hazardous chemical while using DMSO. Many things that are safe when placed on the skin aren't necessarily so when they are absorbed into the body.
DMSO should be stored in glass containers (not plastic) and whatever area on the body it touches should be extremely clean. Be very conscious of not contaminating your bottle by dipping anything into it and make sure any container you use is also clean. As long as you're careful, you shouldn't have any problems."
11/03/2008: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Basically Aja made one major error here when he writes, "DMSO should be stored in glass containers (not plastic) and whatever area on the body it touches should be extremely clean."
DMSO is sold by chemical suppliers generally in plastic containers (mine is from Fisher Scientific -picture of my DMSO is shown here) and it doesn't dissolve anything. Alcohol and acetone can dissolve certain things, namely plastic. But nothing dissolves organic compounds, such as skin, tissue, except through the process of digestion. And that is the job of Ebola, MRSA, your stomach acid to name a few.? So it is technically doubtful that a REAL CHEMIST would say that DMSO should be stored in a glass container. DMSO doesn't go through the plastic containers sold by chemical suppliers.
DMSO is actually a byproduct of paper manufacturing processes, and the paper mill tried to get rid of it by pouring on to the coal tar roads. It was a disaster, as all the animals, such as deer, squirrels started licking up this miraculous substance. And it was later that a chemist name Dr. Stanley Jacobs was looking for a suitable compound to preserve heart from damage during transportation to protect them and found DMSO by chance. It's antioxidant ability had that capability from preventing damage, but it had wide uses in a chemical fields since it offers cells to receive oxygen where blood vessels can't reach. The woman who posted the cat was right on.
The DMSO can go through the cells receiving oxygen to cells that are dying helping it revived and this is why DMSO is ideal in emergency situations such as a stroke, or brain damage situation.
To make a long story short, I used DMSO mixed with water to reduce irritation, but MSM can do it too, although it won't have that recognition in emergency situation mentioned, since MSM doesn't go through the cells as easily as a DMSO.
U.S. culture is an unusual one. You ask people there for directions and there is a good chance they will give you the wrong directions. This was shown in Alan Fudd's Candid Camera too. In many foreign countries, if people don't know directions, they will say they don't know. But if they did give directions, chances are good that the directions are a correct one. In other words, U.S. by culture are somewhat of a bulls***ers. lol. So there is a good chance some posts will be fake ones."
11/04/2008: Anabelle from Denver, CO replies: "Hello everyone. Thanks for this great site, I have used many of the remedies posted here with success. My question is regarding the use of DMSO for cats. Has anybody used DMSO internally, if so what dosage would you recommend? My cat has been limping and has a hard time jumping and going up and down the stairs. I would prefer to use DMSO externally, but I don't know exactly where to rub it. He is very overweight (~25-30 lbs.), does not like being held, so if I pick him up I can not "look"/feel for what hurts, I just notice the limping and the discomfort. I was thinking about using a few drops in distilled water, down his throat. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!"
01/06/2009: MaryAnn from Dallas, TX replies: "This is in response to Ted from Bangkok:
First, please take into consideration that *most* chemical companies are not in business to provide ingestables, but rather chemical compounds for commercial use. Aja's comment about keeping DMSO in glass is quite appropriate, as many chemical compounds will leach chemicals out of plastic, although not necessarily dissolve it. I would hesitate to use a chemical bought such as you show in your picture for internal use, including something to be absorbed into the skin. Pharmaceutical grade is preferred.
Second, I do not consider this to be an appropriate place for you to vent against an entire nation. This is supposed to be a healing community. Do you truly believe your comments about Americans being bull****ers is in the best interest of healing the planet? Please add only positive to this list. (Oh, just so you know, I have travelled a bit and have found that there are people all over the world who give incorrect directions. You must have asked for directions at an American gas station, where most of the employees have English as a second language... misdirections given not on purpose, but misunderstandings occur.)

That was a huge drop in the bucket to read such negativity especially about the USA people, some of us are here by no choice of our own but I have been here for quite a few centuries, I have a lot of battles with people here silently but we are all human beings doing the only human thing we are taught or know at best. I'm quite sure all countries have their faults as well. But we cannot blame the whole country's for it's losses or ignorance..... Would you like it best if all us Americans left your website?
And all along I was thinking what a nice spicey website, it's great to meet other's all around the world. Good luck"

All genius have their short comings - I believe it was very inappropriate of express your negative views of our genius and hero "Ted" in such a negative light - surely he has helped plenty more folks than you EVER will in your lifetime -(due to your attitude) you seem very plastic to me."
02/07/2012: Col from Denver, Co replies: "Hey Ted - thanks so much for being you - we love you for all your amazing work and we need more innovative folks like you in this world - there will always be those who will want to take you the wrong way -(they don't see the forest for the trees) the "whiners" - - carry on and god bless you, - you are a very good man/genius and people like you make my life worth living. Thanks a zillion trillion!"

WHEN I wrote about my experience with AVC I should have mentioned I followed carefully how to mix the two ing. and I only applied with cotton. I am thinking of adding the AVC to his food. So many people had luck. I want so despretly to relieve him of his itching. I wrote how panda needs his ARMOUR that really prevents him from attacking his delicate skin and paws. But if some how I can find a HOME cure from someone on your site it would be a blessing. I cannot for the life of me how so many owners can watch their babies biting, scratching licking til their skin is raw and bleeding. That's what would happen to Panda if I didn't protect his body. Right now my baby is sleeping next to me. You got to do whatever works. THIS works for us now. But I am looking for hope I am trying to build up his immune system.
Going with omega 3, turmeric and coconut oil. I read this on your wonder EarthClinic! I have him on it for a week now and pray this will solve his allergy. Also I never mentioned Panda is on a 5 star dry food. Made in USA. Also I did try grainfree, raw meat. And yes I gave each 50 days to see if this rash was food related. Even though my vet said it is envirerment allergies and wantedto give him steriods but NOWAY was I going that way. SOOO thats my story. I think I wrote he is 6 and that this started a year ago. I was blown away when I started getting on the sites. My heart goes out to all! I hope I will be registerd permantly now. IF I am not please Email me so I can login all the time. THANKS TED GOD BLESS!"
07/05/2013: Anonymous from Usa replies: "I am from the US and worked at two highway gas stations. I 'know' my streets, roads, and highways so felt quite confident with the 4 years of directions I gave out. In addition I also made phone calls for road conditions to make sure people were not stuck elsewhere with the same conditions -- such as snow and ice on the roads. BUT... I had occasion to see certain co-workers give out false directions -- deliberately -- and right in front of them, I corrected that situation right quick and then, afterwards, always ended up in an argument with said co-worker(s) about doing that cr*p because doing that to people is not right! So, just remember that some people are jerks and give wrong directions on purpose for their amusement. Carrying or buying a real 'hard copy' map helps when there isn't any access to a reliable internet map service. Also, I have seen sooo many people who ended up on the wrong side of the mountain because their GPS service took them on a many wasted hours of way out of the way joy rides...
As for those who live in the land of everything is bliss and we all walk around chanting mantras, all I have to say is WAKE UP! Life is happening out there and sometimes it takes a bit of a kick in the b*tt to get a *necessary* point across to some people."
