  Re: VRM2 for Heartworm

Posted by Megs888 (Tennessee) on 11/28/2015

Faye, I am having the same issue with my senior pitbull mix. This summer, she had developed the characteristic cough and had become very, very lethargic. Took her to the vet and she tested positive for heartworms. I started her on VRM2 (3 per day) on July 20. Within 3 days she was running, playing, jumping everywhere again. That stuff is incredible! We completed 4 rounds of it (10 days on, 5 days off). I also want to thank Brenda in CA for her info/help on this forum as well! She is exceptional.

Our sweet Gretchen has now (since early October) developed abdominal swelling, and I'm guessing it's from the damage the worms had already done to her heart...I wish I had supplemented with Hawthorne, CoQ10, or some Traditional Chinese Medicine Heart/Lung Qi supplements. A vet told me they could drain the fluid, but it would come back even worse than before. She is still ravenously eating and drinking. Still playing and exploring - just a little slower because of the increased weight/fluid. I'm sorry to hear your Lasix wasn't successful. Have you tried any other herbs successfully? Is there anything out there that actually REPAIRS and strengthens damaged heart muscle?

Apple Cider Vinegar for Cystitis - Amazing Remedy, Amazing Results

Sat, 28 Nov 15 22:15:36 -0500

[YEA]  Hello,

My male cat Samson has cystitis. He has been going to the vet off and on for a year now with occasional occurrences of cystitis. About a month ago, he started to have a more frequent occurrences so we took him in for a check up. The vet did the whole check up and helped him pass his stones ( cause I know my wife and I could not). They gave him a prescription of Orbax and Dasuquin which is just and anti-inflammatory and a joint health supplument for 120 dollars. My wife and I religiously gave him his dosages for 2 weeks then he had a major flare up. He was trying to pee running back and forth box to box (5 separate boxes). We would let him outside to be comfortable and try to pee out there and not much help.

One morning he and I had had enough. Started doing research online about home remedies for cats with cystitis (since these beautiful animals have been around since the Egyptian days). I came across this website and started to read these testimonials from all of these fellow cat lovers. So I had my wife call the vet to get him in to make sure it wasn't more than cystitis. It wasn't. He stayed all day and got shots and blood work.

Once he came home I started this regimen of Apple Cider Vinegar and I swear this stuff is amazing. I haven't given him his other medications only ACV for 6 days and he has made major improvements. He is peeing a lot more, not spending long in box, not going back and forth, not scratching then squatting, nothing like he was before. His eyes have cleared up and he is more energetic. He has made a 180° turnaround. He actually drinks more wate now. He doesn't seem to mind the taste. ACV is inexpensive, healthy, organic, non gmo, and has been around for thousands of years. I drink it for health and so does Samson, Coal, Stonie, and Dott. His siblings. I truly cannot express my gratitude for this website and this product. Saved my cats life from misery and pain.

His dosage is:

Am. ACV 1/8 teaspoon to 4 parts filter water..5ml

2 -3 hours later another .5ml

I repeat this all day. Feeding as normal.

This routine continues for big flare ups when I notice issues with urination. Then we reduce to just three times daily.

Reading a post about the essences on your site regarding autoimmune anemic conditions with dogs. My dog has had this condition for a couple of years and Timid essence and Reiki has helped greatly, but would like to know the name of ABFE that is suggested. Kind regards, Janet

VRM2 Did Not Cure Heartworm

Sat, 28 Nov 15 22:08:57 -0500
Posted by Mymadame ( Lafayette, Louisiana ) on 11/28/2015

[NAY]  I have administered the VRM2 treatment three or four times now in the last year; so many days on followed by so many days off. (10/5 program, and 14 days straight program) My Catahoula Pits weigh 60 to 65 pounds. I used six pills per day.

At the annual check up this summer, the male dog infection was about the same; the female is worse.

Do you have reports from people that say this doesn't work for their dogs?

  Treatment for Ear Mites - Update

Sat, 28 Nov 15 09:08:08 -0500
Posted by John Cole (Saipan) on 11/27/2015

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I previously told you about weeks of misery from cat ear mites being gone in 24 hours. That was true.

Tommy, a small tiger-looking cat who conned me into taking him in, here in Saipan (my original four cats came with me from Japan), had been suffering for weeks from what was obviously ear mites according to my knowledge. The first squirt of "baby oil", consisting of mineral oil and "olive oil essence" with a very minimal odor, stopped the severely lowered ear position, head shaking, and scratching very quickly.

Three or four days later, those signs starting popping up again, slightly, so I gave one more squirt in each ear. Again, very helpful. Then five or six days later, a lower level of those same signs, so I just gave one squirt in each ear.

I think this is the same treatment a vet might charge $50 for. Depending on the severity of the infestation and your cat's overall health, diet, and freedom to exercise and get sunshine, you might need to treat with mineral oil more than once, up to perhaps five or six times, to get complete resolution.

I took Tommy's brother, Toby, to the vet several weeks ago for the same condition. Although I avoided examining the bill for details ( "anger management" ), I suspect I paid $40 to $60 for a squirt of mineral oil in each ear.

It's not a magic cure, but the best thing I have found for ear mites so far.

I had a cat that had a massive open wound under its chin which had gotten infected. I was taught by an holistic animal vet to pack the wound with raw honey. It worked like a dream. It was a sticky mess and she would lick her fur ... which aids in the healing also. I was also told that if I did not have Honey, that plain Sugar (yes I did say plain Sugar! ) can be used to pack the open wounds and it will work the same way. I have used the remedy on my kids and dogs also and am a believer! Hope that could help you... Also taking Turmeric internally....

Apple Cider Vinegar for Feline Respiratory Infection

Posted by Erin (Ferrysburg, Mi) on 11/27/2015

[YEA]  Thank you so much for the apple cider vinegar tip. Read on best method for administering to cats last night. The night we adopted our beautiful cat he came down with the sneezes. By the next night he has a fever of 106.5. The vet diagnosed him with Upper Respiratory Infection. He seemed to be getting better for a day or 2 but on Thursday he got even worse. He had green/yellow gunk coming out of his eyes and nose. He stopped eating and his fever was back up to 106. After finding this site I Ran out and got some raw organic apple cider vinegar last night. First I did a steam bath where I put him in his cage, covered half with a towel over a mixture of hot steaming ACV and water. Let it steam him out in the cage for 10-15 minutes. Then I rubbed some on his back and front paws. Repeated this once more before bedtime. This morning I woke up and he greeted me good morning. His temp was down to 103.5. He ate some food (which he hasn't done in a couple days). Tonight he seems even better. Yay!!!! I'll continue to give him these treatment for a few days and hopefully he will get all better.

[YEA]  My dog has been itching & scratching for a couple of weeks. Tuesday, I came in from work and brought her out to potty, noticed the missing hair (bald spot) on her left upper thigh. She was scratchping & gnawing profusely. It was so frustrating to see her constantly scratching. We woke this morning and she had scratched so much during the nigh until she had irritat under her right arm. I googled to find home remedies that may help & I came across this site. Love love love it!!! I did the 50/50 apple cider vinegar/water. I drenched her tail and sprayed the rest of her body generously. In less than 10-mins she scratching & gnawing at her tail & legs. She is laying her usual spot on the love seat. I'm so relieved as I know my little "Diamond" is too. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Marilyn,

Yes - the same borax you see in the laundry aisle. Make sure it is plain borax and not scented or mixed with anything else.

Hello Val,

Your information is NOT accurate.

Borax is also known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate. Your Acido Borico is BORIC ACID - this is NOT the same as borax.

If you do find borax please do not mix it with vinegar and hydrogen peroxide as you will be creating peracetic acid which is much, much stronger than the original mange remedy.

Buying Ted's Mange Remedy Ingredients in Greece - Questions

Posted by Val (Crete, Greece) on 11/26/2015

I care for rescued street cats and picked up a young kitten with 'mange' (vet diagnosed) The cream which he prescribed hasnt improved this condition so I abandoned it and started a 50/50 ACV and water mix soaking. This appears to be imroving this condition but for future use I wanted to mix the solution recommended - Borax - Hydrogene Peroxide - and ACV.

However - here I have been to a chemist and have been assured that these two items are the same - ACIDO BORICO = Borax and Water soft Peroxide Oxygene = Hydrogene peroxide. I would like your opinion of the accuracy of this information BEFORE using these products on young cats PLEASE. Also the recipe for this mix.

Thanks so much

Must disagree with your assumption that Humans are Herbavores. We are not. If we were we would have a multichambered stomach to digest only plant matter like cows do. We are Omnivores - our species have been Hunters & Gatherers for most of our existence. Dogs are also Omnivores with a bias towards meat.

However, you are right on about Kibble. Dog food is a post industrial convienience food invented to make money. What did dogs eat before they ate dog food?

Oh, but that Purina Chuck Wagon sure is cute! Haha

My niece's little dog had a cyst under her neck it looked like a ball hanging down, someone told her to tie it off with string that causes the blood supply not to get to burst and pus came out. She put antibiotic ointment on it and she said it healed really well. Hasn't came back...

Do you mean Borax as in Borax soap located in the laundry detergents at my local grocery store? Don't want to give my dog the incorrect thing for her yeast infections.

Most grateful in Florida, MJS

Hello Sassy,

Your puppy may have problems besides yeast - if this were my dog I would think mange mites of some type. Please consider dipping your puppy in Ted's Mange Remedy - start with a full dip every other day for 3 treatments and report back please. Also consider borax in the water per Ted's Borax for pets protocol. This treatment is far more affordable than tube after tube of monistat, and very effective.

Please can you tell me if turmeric and castor oil is to apply on the tumor area or to give it with the food. I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing. My dog has a mast cell tumor on the stomach by the right mamaries is really big and it looks like is spreading, going up like a 1/2 inch wide. I have been giving her turmeric w flax seed oil. Then I have been trying fot couple days olive oiL and today I tried coconut oil w turmeric. Another thing that I tried 2 weeks ago only one time was water with baking soda and it look like tumor kind of broke down and she got the right leg swollen from the right side of stomach to the pow. Took her to vet and prescribed her antibiotics and anti inflammatory pills. The vet could not do anything because of the swollen and seems complicated. My dog has an open wound also as big as a penny and skin is kind of breaking unto wounds. Fluid comes out of the wound and all I can do for her is just cleans her but she leaks herself and I can't control her. can you tell me pls if the swollen might be the fluid all over in her leg?
