For this you will find much contribution under "ESSIAC" on EC special sections. Make sure you get the herbs with all the roots (four herb). Read instructions carefully. The herbs are very potent.

Al the best, Namaste, Om

Hi Marilyn --- I have had the same experience with a little dog. He had mites and they burrowed deeply under his cuticles. So with Ted's mange bath or just standing in Borax water for a while, should deal with mites. But it can by now be a habit hard to break. It is part of frustration I think.

But I found upon close inspection that he was suffering from a fungal infection as well, which is very itchy and if not treated, a pain. So, again, Ted's fungus treatment with a good anti fungal topical treatment. For this a soft collar would prevent the dog to lick the infected toes.

Please look under "Ted's Mange and fungus treatment" on EC's special sections and good success.

Namaste, Om

My dog just had a tumor removed from her hind quarters and it is cancerous. I immediately went to research the herb TUMERIC. There are some really good results from giving your pet this herb. I think you have to look to see if it is OK for your cat but I am hearing that it does shrink tumors.

Good Luck, prayers for you.

I've read all the benefits of giving my dogs ACV. How much ACV would I add to the 2. 5 gallon water dispenser?

My poodle keeps licking her paws. Sometimes she lick it until it is raw. How can I get her to stop? I have tried bitter apple, but that doesn't seem to work.

What Can Shrink Tumor of Cat With Adenocarcinoma?

QUESTION: When our Penelope, white American Shorthair cat, age fourteen, was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma we were given few options. The tumor is on her forehead at the top of her nose and in her right nasal passage. Even though, at that time, the tumor wasn't visible, the oncologist said she would not recommend radiation, but could offer chemo. I asked her how many cats she had saved with this approach and after deflecting my question twice, finally, answered when I asked the third time. Her answer was "none". I was a little surprised, but not a lot and told her I would not be subjecting Penelope to such utter nonsense. I say that because our regular vet is still feeling guilty some years after chemoing her own cat to death. She has brought the matter up more than once saying her cat was throwing up and hiding, simply miserable, from her treatment, and it will trouble her for the rest of her life that she did that to her cat.

Instead, I opted for a nutritional approach offered by a company calling themselves "Veterinary Science" or something like that. After a month of their lipids and green powder, etc. the tumor had grown considerably so I switched to mushroom powder and my own concoction of fish oil, enzymes, probiotics, etc., and started giving Penelope hp twice a day. orally, working up to three quarters of a drop each time. The tumor has grown somewhat since then so I began using dmso with hp in it and some baking soda. At this point, the tumor's progression seems less and her spirits are quite good, not as good as in the beginning, but good. She still comes over to lick my face and she eats very well but has lost weight. My question is, what would cause this tumor to shrink? I don't have much spare time as I am a caregiver for my husband and have several other cats and some dogs to care for as well as the house, garden and everything else. But, like so many of you, I prefer harmless, home remedies to pharmaceutical drugs...putting it kindly.

Need Treatment Advice for Tail Sarcoma in Dog

I have an 11 year old german shepherd and he has two large golf ball sized tumors on his tail, one of them is ulcerated. When they first showed up they looked like little pea sized cysts but grew to their current size within 2 months. My vet did a fine needle biopsy and diagnosed a malignant sarcoma, but the lab couldn't tell what kind or stage without a full biopsy. He wants to amputate the tail and I'm not sure my dog will survive the surgery. Is there an alternative?

Dog With Itchy Skin and Cat With Chronic Vomiting

Sat, 28 Feb 15 21:57:23 -0500
Posted by Mia (Johannesburg, South Africa) on 02/28/2015

Hi there, I have a very itchy dog - it seems to be a grass allergy. I want to try apple cider vinegar, but how can I know if it isn't a yeast infection or if the ACV has been distilled with yeast? I really really don't want to make his scratching worse!

I also have a cat who throws up at worst every day. It looks like hairballs. I've tried a high fibre diet, and now I'm using a natural laxative made mostly of oils. That worked for a while but the vomiting is increasing again, like she's becoming immune to the food and laxatives. Any suggestions?

Seeking ACV Dosage for Renal Disease and Upper Respiratory Infection

Thank you for this site. I just came across it doing research on ACV and I think this can help my cat. I have a 21 yr old boy with kidney disease. For the past few weeks, he has also been suffering from and upper respiratory infection for the first time in his life, and he is on antibiotics. I would like to give him ACV for both conditions, but given his age and frailty, I'm afraid to give him the improper dose. I think he will not object to ACV, since he has a savory palate (he also dislikes sweets). Can someone knowledgeable suggest a specific measurable amount to give him. Thank you so much.

Hey Cherie!

You can buy activated charcoal at most pharmacies or drug stores - just ask if you do not see it. You may also find it at whole food co-ops or natural stores OR at any fish/pet store - though the type from the fish store needs to be ground into a fine powder before you can use it.

Your advice about goldenrod tea sounds helpful. My 2 year old boy has had respiratory infection his whole life and it's worsening by the day. I have tried many medications with no success. How much water do you steep the tbsp of tea in? Could I just drop it straight onto bread for him to eat? - Thank you :)

Claire, you're abusing any carnivore upon whom you force a vegan diet. I don't even think you're well intentioned; I think you're just ignorant. Dogs need a raw diet comprised of muscle flesh, bones, organs, offal, sinew, fur, oils and from a variety of species to be healthy. Wise up.

 Re: Can I Use Heinz ACV for Dogs?

Hey Martyn!

Heintz ACV is pasturized, so does not have the benefit of the probiotics. If you are using it to clean your floors or wash your dog it is fine, but for medicinal or nutritional purposes you need the raw ACV.

In Thailand you could try Tops Supermarkets in Bangkok or Max Valu stores. You specically want to see RAW, unpasturised, unfiltered, organic, "With the Mother" on the bottle.

Hey Stephanie!

Read up on EC's parvo page and look at pedialyte and activated charcoal. There is much information if you but take the time to scroll up and down and read all the suggested formulas and approaches to treatment and dosing.
