Hi! Sid, I wanted to mention that I still continue to treat Amber even though the scratching and chewing have stopped. It will take a while for her immune system to get strong again and I see a need for a maintenance program to make sure she doesn't experience any setbacks while she is healing. I told Teresa, Amber had a litter, was abused and abandoned, had an hysterectomy, given flea and tick treatment, shots, heart worm treatment, and was mal and under nourished. Long term love and Patience. Good Luck, Robert Lovemyamber

Hi! Amanda , Hi! Nickey, Diatomaceous earth can be sprinkled thoroughly around the edges of your rooms for flea control. It kills them because it has very sharp edges and penetrates the fleas exoskeleton when they move. Takes a while though. Use pharmaceutical grade rather than swimming pool grade. Good luck, Robert Lovemyamber

Hi! Theresa, A story put out by the raw meat diet company Reel Raw. A female dog was producing puppies infected with demodex. They stopped every thing but a balanced raw meat diet, not to be confused with a raw food diet, ie veggies etc. A year later her litters were demodex free. I am thinking I sound like a salesman but I just want others to see the results I have seen. Interesting story anyway and makes sense. Robert Lovemyamber

 Re: Dog With Carcinoma in Nasal Cavity

Good Day,

My dog Zoe was just diagnosed with carcinoma in her nasal cavity yesterday. Although we think she has some pain, she's still eating, and is active. Her eye is bulging and she does express pain when touched in that area.

Please let me know what treatments worked the best and for how long it prolonged the quality of life for your dog.

Thank you

jcZoe

Sunnyg; I was thinking on the line of maybe your dog could have an allergy to one or all raw food/s ? I have to keep checking my pets where I have two that throw up if they eat can cat food, but appear ok when I cook fresh chicken for them. I have to find a way to test their ph because they are drinking a very large amount of water.

Thank you so much on your message of giving your cat Vit.C " I was actually searching for my dogs ailments, but then I noticed where you wrote your cat drinking a lot of water as I have two cats doing this. I need to look for the Vit. C. Thank you for sharing very important and helpful information.

[YEA]  I used to bath my huge pit bull in a plastic or tin or even metal portable big tub, you might be able to buy at either Lowes or Home Depot another time we used a kids plastic swimming pool, then we either did him in the cellar or put a huge absorbent blanket in the kitchen and try to wash him/her.

Good Luck & have fun. :-)

My husband doesn't believe in bathing dogs so our Lab/mix has only had 2 or 3 in the 7 years since we rescued him. So, here we are in 20 degree weather, so I can't bath outdoors; how do you even get a 60 lb lab in the tub and get him to stay there so you can treat his skin; it started on his face around his eyes and itchy ears and then spread to his belly and between his foot pads; he's constantly scratching/chewing......suggestions?

11 Year Old Cat with Dental Issues from Feline Leukemia

Wed, 19 Nov 14 11:32:12 -0500
Posted by Stacy (Petersburg, Michigan) on 11/18/2014

Hi, about eight months ago my 11 yr old cat Chelsea was diagnosed with feline leukemia she caught from a rescue cat. Her main health issue is her teeth. She had them all pulled seven months ago. She seems fine she plays n purrs and seems very happy and normal except every two weeks her mouth acts up and she stops eating and we have to give her a steroid shot. Is there anything all natural that I could be giving her to help. Thank you so very much for your time and knowledge.

Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse for Dogs

Wed, 19 Nov 14 11:26:16 -0500

Posted by Merlin (New York, US) on 11/19/2014

[WARNING!]  Do NOT use apple cider vinegar rinse if your dog has very irritated skin or ANY sores. We used this on our bichon and the dog screamed in pain. I never heard such a terrible noise from an animal, we immediately rinsed with cool water for 10 minutes before he stopped crying.

Hi! Sid, Don't forget, the raw meats and organs need to be diversified. I tried shopping and preparing a diversified diet and it was a nightmare. It took forever. I found this Company on the internet called Reel Raw that will ship frozen, USDA approved, human grade meat to your door. It is all pre-packaged according to your dogs weight and has a balanced selection of meats , meaty bones and organs. It is a little expensive but when you factor in the convenience its a good deal, and to me, my Amber is worth more than anything , cars, fancy clothes , expensive dinners, etc. She comes first. Good luck, Robert Lovemyamber

Hey Theresa,

It just couldn't have been said any better Theresa. Many of the acronyms Kristen quoted are bought and paid for by the big commercial food companies, and sadly, many Vets don't even know it and even more don't care.

Yours, Robert Lovemyamber

 Re: Need Help for Puppy's Mass

Hey Marlee!

Can you provide a better description for your puppy's affliction? Is he losing hair around his eyes? Does he have pimples? Is his face swollen?

If the lady down the road is correct in her diagnosis of strangles, the most common treatment is steroids - cortizone, prednisone, etc. in combination with an antibiotic.

It could be that it runs its course and leaves your puppy with minimal scarring - but most puppies with this condition *need* to see the vet, and left untreated death is common.

There appears to be a genetic component involved with this disease -it would be wise to avoid breeding this pair of dogs together again and would be wise to not use any of the surviving puppies from this litter for broodstock.

http://www.irishwolfhounds.org/infections.htm

For what it is worth, this advice was posted by a holistic vet in an online forum on puppy strangles:

Dr. E, DVM, Brooklyn, NY on said:

"There is an herbal medicine called Antiphlogistic Tablets or Chuan Xin Lian. Kan herbs makes the antiphlogistic in a liquid form as well. However, if you have a China Town near you , grab the Chuan Xian Lian. It is an M & M like pill and easily swallowed.

This is anti-bacterial and anti-viral. Has been used to treat Mumps. If you are getting this from a Chinese medicine apothecary, pick up Yin Qioa as well. This can clear hearing and great for viruses and sore throat.

Also, make sure not to give low quality dog food (and definitely not dry food). Stay with the healthier brands ie. Merrick , Evo etc or do home cooking."

This condition is a *painful* condition for your puppy - and treatment with steroids is the ideal. If you cannot afford to see a vet, please consider contacting your local animal rescue to see if funds or assistance is available to you.
