 Remedies Needed for French Bulldog

Hey Frenchiemom!

I share my home with 6 frenchies -and I believe I know what is going on with your girl.

As you know, frenchies have weird tails; they are super short, and they can spiral like a corkscrew. The spiraling or curling of the tail can happen any place on the tail, and very often it happens at the very start of the tail, causing the bones of the tail to curve inward, right into the dog's rump. This curling at the base of the tail creates what is called a 'tail pocket'; the pocket creates an environment for yeast and bacteria to grow; this causes the behavior you are seeing, and is super uncomfortable for your girl.

What you need to do to clean the tail pocket is to get the dog back in the tub and feel all around the tail with your fingers; probe underneath the tail, and visually check for areas where the skin is folded tightly together. Push any rolled skin back and flush the area out. Additionally pull on the hair to remove trapped hair; the goal is not to pull all the hair out, but any shed hair that is trapped will come out: very often you will see brownish gunk or staining on the hair - this tells you that you are cleaning right where it is needed. It may take a bit and a couple of baths to get the tail pocket fully cleaned.

Now, to address the discomfort, you could use OTC triple antibiotic ointment on the abraded skin, and a woman's vaginal yeast infection cream applied deep into the tail pocket. Or you could make up some of Ted's Anti-fungal/anti-staph remedy as follows:

You will need:

Milk of Magnesia [magnesium hydroxide]

Epsom salts [magnesium sulfate]

Borax [sodium tetraborate]

1% hydrogen peroxide solution [you make this by using one 16 oz brown bottle of the 3% hydrogen peroxide from the drug store, and adding 32 oz of pure water to it, making 48 oz of a 1% solution -clear as mud?]

Mix 1 tbsp of MOM with 1 tbsp epsom salt and 1 tbsp borax into 1-1/2 cups of 1% hydrogen peroxide. Apply and do not rinse. This solution should knock out any staph infection or yeast infection going on in the skin. I actually make up this solution in a gallon jug when my dog's get allergy hives and then bathe and rinse clean my dog really well. I then squeeze out any water in the coat with my hands, allow the tub to drain, and then plug the tub and pour the solution over the dog and then scoop up the solution with a plastic cup and pour over again and again for 10 minutes. You can use this solution to thoroughly clean around the vulva and I also use it on yeasty ears as well. Then I take the soaking wet dog and place it in a crate for half and hour to drip dry; the solution is still working as long as its wet. After half an hour I let the dog out and towel dry.

 Re: Coconut Oil for Cat's Stomatitis

Jane, your news about how effective coconut oil was for your cat sounds so wonderful - I'm so worried about having to pay $500 each year ($300 just for anaesthetic) to have my cat's teeth scraped - can you tell me what product of coconut oil you used? Or maybe what's its properties are, as listed on the pack? Perhaps I can match them. Thanks for your advice.

Remedies Needed for French Bulldog

Hello, I have a three year old mini french bulldog and for the past few weeks she has been constantly dragging her butt around, rubbing it on furniture, carpet, fences, anything she can. She used to do it occasionally but now it is almost constant. My husband has released her anal glands and it does not seem to help. Her bottom is getting raw and red and its almost like the fur on her little tail nub is falling out. Any advice? Natural home remedy suggestions? Please! Thank you!

Hey Kim!

Please read up about Cushings disease on EC's page:

If you are using the ACV topically, you can dilute 10:1 - ten parts water to 1 part ACV and saturate your dog and just let him air dry.

I want to know how much apple cider vinegar I should use on my dog. She is 25 lbs and has cushions. The medication does not work and we have tried many. Do I spray on and leave? Do I rinse?

Water Kefir for Pets

Tue, 19 Aug 14 14:44:13 -0500

Posted by Om (Hope, Bc Canada) on 08/19/2014

My Cats and dogs get water kefir over their food once a day. I was out of baby probiotics and the health food store did not have it when I remembered the water kefir crystals in my pantry. This works and is really cheap to use. If there is constipation, just a little more of the liquid. It is available readily online.

The other time daily, they get ACV.

Namaste, Om

Cherisse, South Africa --- MMS for parvo. It has cured a dog by just giving a few drops for three days and he was fine at day three. I buy my vegan supplies from Real Raw Food and they are giving this info about their dog at the bottom of their products line. I bought MMS from them. They are trustworthy people.

Namaste, Om

 Remedies Needed for Cat With Crystals in Urine

Tue, 19 Aug 14 10:56:32 -0500

Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 08/19/2014

Hey Frances!

It sounds like your cat has a UTI; this is a medical issue, not a marking issue. If your money is dear, stop buying the spray that deters marking and invest instead in an enzymatic cleaning solution: you can buy enzymes bulk at many whole food co-ops and they are much cheaper than the products sold in pet store and work the same.

Please read up on UTI's in cats on EC's page:

Many people have had good results with Apple Cider Vinegar - which is featured on the page linked.

Hey Bempierre!

Thank you for your feedback. I do not have first hand experience with this product, so before posting this advice I did extensive research and read up on many others who used this product with good result.

The dosage I posted was for an 82 pound dog. If your 7 pound dog took 1/2 capsule, then an 82 pound dog would get 6 capsules a day. Breaking the dose in half - 3 capsules am and 3 capsules pm is easier on the dog/not as rapid a die off of heart worms than the full dose at one feeding; this is not my opinion, it is what others using the product have done. The company recommends the treatment schedule - I suspect to control the toxic effect of the massive die off of the worms- again - JMHO; that you had results in tailoring the schedule is helpful information for all - thank you for sharing what worked well for you and your dog :-)

hi,vwhen you used MMS with parvo, what protocol did you use?? for how long?? with a viral life threatening infection you have to dose for 8 hours for 3 weeks..I used CDS with distemper and it worked wonders. I use it on myself as well.

Teresa, that is wrong info. I originally posted about VRM2 here on this site and used it back in 2007 to cure a dog I rescued that had stage 4 heartworm. The dosage for dogs is not the same as you read on the bottle. That was designed for human consumption.

You can do more than one round if you want but, if given the right amount for the size of the dog (1/2 to 3 capsules) ONCE a day for 14 days straight will cure heartworm.

For ex: my 7 lb dog was given 1/2 a capsule for 14 days. No red meat or pork because it will absorb the product and not work as well. Give it pref. in the late afternoon or eve.

I mixed it in a small amount (1-2 tbsp of chopped chicken) so you only have to do one round if given the right amount at the time. I tried to break it down in a earlier post of how much per size of dog, but in some cases if there are still symptoms, you will have to adjust the amount given.

eg: if you are giving one capsule for 14 days and still have symptoms, (or a positive blood test), you may have to do another run of 1 1/2 to 2 capsules per day

If you plan to do a blood test after, wait for 12 wks. then test so you do not get a false positive. You can google more on how that works and what a false positive is.

Please note that it only took one run to cure my dog. It is getting the amount right.

Make sure you get a blood test first and know it is positive for heartworm.

Hi, yes the Tinkle Tonic worked wonders for my cat Thomas, I can highly recommend it! It seemed very soothing for the inflammation, plus we gave him a cranberry extract powder - and as our vet is a conventional and homeopathic vet we gave him homeopathic Thlaspsi Bursa - "Urinary.--Frequent desire; urine heavy, phosphatic. Chronic cystitis. Dysuria and spasmodic retention. H?maturia. Accumulation of gravel. Renal colic. Brick-dust sediment. Urethritis; urine runs away in little jets. Often replaces the use of the catheter. "

One thing I did too was offer 2 bowls of drinking water - one had ACV in it and the other just plain filtered water so he could choose :)

My cat has continually peed on my roomate's bed for the last few weeks. just a little bit ago I found crystals in the urine on his bed, now I've moved my cat upstairs and she hasn't peed on any of my stuff, just the bed and a popazon chair, but nowhere else. She keeps doing it, not sure what is wrong but I have no money to take her to the vet for a couple of weeks. I bought special UTI food last week, the spray that discourages marking, everything. still won't stop. Has anyone else had this issue, what do I do? -frances

I tried the acidopholis for several months, but did not see any noticeable improvement. I am going to try the bath treatments posted here along with some of the other suggestions and hope something will help him.

 Feline Hyperesthesia Remedies Requested

Hey Marlene!

There is evidence that this condition may be connected to a brain/seizure disorder. You might consider Ted's Remedies for seizures:

"Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand):

I had a feedback of a child that had monthly epileptic seizures. The remedy for that one for a child anyway was 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, and some magnesium citrate supplements, which was about 100-150 mg. A foundation exists because a disease exists, if there were no disease, a foundation would not exist and people would be out of a job. Hence, the system perpetuates the disease. An epileptic seizures at least on my observations were at least a couple things (but more) as the cause that can be considered in a home remedy: A heavy metal toxicity and hence magnesium reduces this problem.

An alkalization increases oxygen and the brain can heal itself.

A lecithin supplements for a child, for example might be 1/2 tablespoon a day. The lecithin promotes myelin sheath.

Both the myelin sheaths if insufficient the brain short circuits as there is no insulation to protect electrical neural travelling. The lecithin promotes myelin sheaths. Heavy metals are electrically conductive and causes the brain to short circuit. I have seen some children with epileptic seizures where the CAT scans show as white dots (metals absorbs the radiation so they appear white) on the brain. Those were the heavy metals that deposits.

Oh yes, and one more thing, vitamin C sodium ascorbate vitamin C is important as the brain has large stores of them necessary to protect against oxidants. A 250 mg dose will usually help too."

Based on this advice for a human child, a cat might take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda into 1 liter of water and have that as the only drinking water. After 5 days I would reduce to 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda into 1 liter of water.

In addition, I would consider dosing 1/2 teaspoon of lecithin for 5 days, and drop down to 1/4 teaspoon as a maintenance dose after that.

Lastly, for the vitamin C, a reasonable dose for your cat might be 1/2 of a 250 mg pill twice daily.

Other considerations would be the diet; feed top shelf groceries - no grains or artificial additives, or consider feeding a RAW diet.

White Vinegar for Fleas

Mon, 18 Aug 14 08:25:20 -0500

Posted by Denise B (Georgia, US) on 08/18/2014

[YEA]  White vinegar for fleas.

I just had my pug and toy poodles dipped for fleas last week. The pug is already scratching again, rubbing his back on furniture, chewing his tail, and keeping me up all night with his whining. A friend told me about vinegar killing fleas, but I wasn't sure, so remembered to check this site.

I combed the pug out and found a couple of fleas, so I grabbed a spray bottle and filled it with white vinegar. I soaked him down, spraying him from his neck to his tail.

It hasn't even been five minutes, and he is now laying calmly at my feet! Tomorrow, I'll spray the poodles, the bulldog that lives outdoors (that sleeps inside on the sunroom), and the house. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Have a little dog and give him Hawthorn tincture. This can be combined with CoQ10. It can be five drops twice a day. The Hawthorn, about five drops in water by syringe. It worked well with another dog and takes about several weeks to strengthen the heart. This is a very old reliable remedy. Look it up online.

Please stay away from modern drugs. Just as a suggestion.

Namaste, Om
