Hello Donna,

It is made by Systemic Formulas - try googling to see if there is a vendor near you.

Hey Brandi,

If you cat has a *bad* ear infection you might consider starting with garlic infused olive oil [search EC pages for directions] as vinegar in any form will sting like the dickens.

my 11 yr old Chi had a cough for approx. 3 weeks, I thought it was allergies due to Spring and being windy. X rays taken and his treckea left side collapsed. Vet said to try DM cough med. 5 days later, I'm watching him sleeping and his little tummy is going up and down mile a minute. My vet had told me to keep an eye on his breathing becuz in his X rays he could see some fluid.. Count his breathing for one min. Anything over 50 bring him right in. He was at 25 breaths in 10 seconds. Rushed him in they kept him..did an ecg..his heart was 300 mpg.

Long story short..we knew he had a heart murmur, but just 9 months ago he was fine. Had some teeth pulled, they always check his heart to see if he can be put under to pull them. Now.just in these past 3 weeks. His heart is at a 5/6. Fluid still in stomach...on 2 heart meds 2x day as well as lasik, for the fluid. Can't get rid of his cough. Very dry hacking...also had an echocardiogram done on him...he will be on meds the rest of his life...no stress..no playing ball...nothing. If I'm lucky I might have him in my life for maybe 2 to 3 years. It really depends on home your furr baby can handle everything. I am just so thankful that I was at home that day when his little heart was in such stress. I gone at least 50 hrs.a week working. My Neighbor watches him at her house everyday...she is his 97 yr. old Grandma. He keeps her alive!!!! Love them everyday....you just never know what will happen next. Prayers to you all❤️❤️🐾🐾🐾🐾

White vinegar is sometimes used instead of apple cider vinegar, especially for topical applications. Just dilute it first. (1/2 vinegar, 1/2 water) If skin in the ear is broken, dilute it a lot. (1 Tablespoon, vinegar 1/2 cup water.)

I was reading about using apple cider vinegar for ear infections in cats. What would happen if white vinegar was used instead or is there something specific about apple cider vinegar that makes it the only vinegar to use?? I have a cat with a bad ear infection & I ran out of the drops I was using so until I can find a ride into town, I only have white vinegar here. Immediate responses are greatly anticipated & appreciated as this is a time sensitive situation. Thank you.

Please help me. I just had to put my 10 year old black Lab/Pitt mix (had him all 10 years) down because of bone marrow cancer. No symptoms, except for limp in front leg which was misdiagnosed (by vet) as arthritis.

I also foster rescues and I am fostering a teacup chihuahua that has been diagnosed with heartworms. I was going to give this one away, but now I think I will keep her. I do need help though as to what to do for the heartworms. I am treating her with the

She only weighs 3 lbs. and has the slight cough. Lack of weight could be attributed to the fact that we found her running on the street and do not know how long she has been on the street. Vet says that she is not a puppy because of missing teeth and it seems she has had puppies. The instructions on the packet call for 10 lb. (1 drop/3 X a day) dogs and up. Should I just give her 1 drop in her food in the morning? Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks and may God bless.

Giving 6 pills a day was way extreme. The treatment for dogs is a 14 day cycle (one time only) And not to exceed 3 capsules in one day. A 60 lb dog should have been good on 2 capsules. Preferably given in the eve in a small amount of food (like a tablespoon of wet chicken base dog food ) no red meat, or pork. This includes sandwich meats. These meats are known to absorb the product.

Lavender Essential Oil in Water for Rabbit Eye Infection

[YEA]  I always keep diluted lavender oil and some cotton rounds to cure my bunnies eye problems. 2 drops in 4 ounces of distilled water. Shake well before application. Just press the saturated cotton round on the bunny's eye for a minute or two. You can also wipe their whole body afterwards. Unless they need an antibiotic cream, this works great. BTW - lavender has natural antibiotic properties.

Hope this helps.

[YEA]  I have used Borax in my RO water at a rate if 1/8 teaspoon per gallon and also add a pinch of grey salt. In my entire immediate family there are 19 canines and 5 cats. All of them have been drinking this water for 21 months and we have not had any issues. In fact, our older dogs seem to move less painfully. Hope this helps :)

I always give DE mixed in wet food so there is no chance of the animal breathing it. Of course, I am careful not to breath it when mixing it too.

My dog suffered from acid reflux. My vet put my dog on a low fat diet, probiotics and psyllium. I feed my pet low fat ID prescription dog food, give 1/4 teaspoon of psyllium and high quality probiotics purchased from vet.The low fat food is the key.
