 Re: Remedies for Mouth and Teeth Issues in Golden Retriever

Hi Theresa,

My first post was posted by the moderator of the website and she probably thought I was from USA, I did not post it by myself. Now that I posted it by myself I fixed it...sorry for the confusion.

During my current research for helping my dog I found the website you mentioned , thank you for referring me as well, and I scheduled an appo with holistic vet .

In the meantime I am trying to get as much as info as I can to start give the dog all those great natural remedies you all refer to and have wonderful results , hoping that her condition will be even better than now.

I checked on line about the colloidal silver, DMSO, slippery elm , but I am confused as for which company to purchase them of, which concentration of the product, and to find a product I can trust it to be safe and good quality.

Would you please be able to assist me with these products?

Thank you

Hello Jane --- for medications ask Theresa which I see you have done. Let's see what comes of that first.

Where do you live?

I would even call organizations out of town and ask. They know much. Explain your case.

Try to contact a rescue organization in your area and see if they are amenable in supporting you. I know a clinic in East Vancouver where you might find sympathy for your case. (Apex) Try to call Angels Rescue in Merritt for additional help; 'cause I don't know where you live. where do you live?

Keep calm. See to your dog. Theresa is so knowledgeable. First, you must be protected.

Let's keep in touch. Namaste, Om

Hey Jane!

Your location has posted as USA and now Canada; where are you? I only ask because you should be able to locate a holistic vet to give you a second opinion - and a holistic vet will be open to alternative therapies such as the colloidal silver et al.

Search for a holistic vet here - it does have Canadian vets:

Just for FYI..I'm treating my 9 yr/old Airedale's cyst with turmeric topical and with food (I add coconut oil to food too) but my "stupid" question is what do you clean it with? Gentle soap and water?

Thank you!

Theresa,

Thank you so much for the reply. I myself never heard about it before, but the reality is that she threatened and called...unfortunately there are those out there.

I read here in previous posts that there is Colloidal Silver, slippery elm and DMSO.

Where can I get those and how much can I give the dog and how...as well , what is DMSO?

Thank you so much for your help, I appreciate it.

I wish I just did not go there at the first place, I was in the wrong time, at the wrong place, meeting the wrong person, and now my dog life is depending on that.

Thank you.

Hello Hope,

Thank you so much for your replies. I appreciate it. The vet did call, and the spc got in touch with me and accused with cruelty. I am looking for a second opinion, but I am concerned where to find such an open mind vet that will truly want the dog to be healthy, and not just the money behind it...I am traumatized because of that vet...

This vet also suggested that if I won't do the surgery I should put her to sleep, and she gave me 3 days to decide...

Since you mentioned you had them in your door few times, would you be able to tell me how it goes with them? What should I do?

If I get second opinion and it is better that the previous one, will they accept it? How did you fight them? what can I do?

I am so sad and it never happened to me , never in my life a vet accused me or threatened me . I wish all dog owner would treat their dogs as I do. And, yes, mine are also rescued from the streets, but I picked her up from the street almost 14 years ago and she is part of our family.

Also,

What is MMS spray ?

Where can I get all the things that you mentioned?

The h203, in the water, where can I buy it and which company should I go with? I assume there are few of them out there, how would I know which one to buy? how many drops should I put in the water?

Thank you so much!!!

Please help me in any way you can, I feel so helpless. Thank you.

 Re: Question About Essiac Tea for Tumors

Take your dog off of dog food and treats. Dog foods and dog treats are killing our fur babies.. We have a beagle and when he was young he started having seizures. We took him off of dog food and dog treats and started boiling him chicken, deer meats, ground round, brown rice, and a veggie twice a day. I would prepare him enough for four or five days and that's what we would feed him. Give him some of the good fruits, carrots and celery for treats. Our beagle never had another seizure. Good luck...

 Re: Apple Cider Vinegar Helped Conjunctivitis

Hello, Michelle --- for conjunctivitis the best remedy is colloidal silver. I personally would not use apple cider vinegar although some people use ACV.

In fact CS is THE remedy for eyes and kills viral infections. Chamomile tea is also excellent.

Namaste, Om

Hi Jane, Theresa and all ---- it was a few years ago when a lady posted on EC about being forced via a vet and a local animal organization to purchase the meds which she found did not help for her mangy dog what seemed to be a court order.

So it does happen and it is clear in my mind still.

Years ago I had a bajenji mix from the Carribean that was on death row. Water on the lungs and emaciated. A person on the street accosted me for cruelty, got in touch with the SPCA and I had an inspector at my door. He knew me and asserted that the dog was properly looked after. The vet that I had seen before that said the animal was in too low health to have success with removal of fluid from the chest cavity.

So he had a better option than being abandoned for convenience and when he died, he had received ample love from us.

Yes, it does happen. And, as I, doing rescue, only adopted needy, unwanted and sick animals, have faced that situation several times.

Namaste, Om

Hi, I have the same problem with my dog and the same thing happened to me with the eye drops prescribed to me by the vet! So I'm going to try the ACV but did you put it directly inside the eye or around? Thanks!

 Re: Trying to Cure Cherry Eye in 9 Week Old Puppy

Thu, 27 Nov 14 16:56:47 -0500
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 11/27/2014

Hey Alex!

Keep on the cherry eye - keep massaging it back in as often as you need to. If the tissue will pop out during a time you cannot massage it back in, ie while you are away at work for a few hours, I would apply a topical antibiotic safe for the eyes on the tissue. You want to at all costs keep the tissue moist and free from infection. If the cherry eye stays out all the time, defying your attempts at massaging it to stay in, a trip to the vet may be in order to discuss your options. Getting veterinary prescribed eye appropriate antibiotics in conjunction with continuing the massaging is an option for another week or two. The main concern is to keep the exposed tissue healthy, happy and free from infection.

One other note: if you bought your puppy from a breeder, the breeder should be contacted. While your vet is a generalist on various conditions seen in Boston's, your breeder is a specialist and may have a few more tricks to offer. Also reputable breeders wish to be informed of any possible genetic conditions found in their puppies, so inform your breeder about this as they may wish to eliminate the sire and dam of your puppy from their breeding program.

 Re: What Type of Acidophilus is Best for Dogs?

Thu, 27 Nov 14 14:37:16 -0500

Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 11/27/2014

Hey Whitney!

I give my dogs all sorts of acidophillus- from the drugstore clearance bin, to the health food store refrigerated section, to natural probiotics that I make myself. Sauerkraut - home made and unpasturized - is an excellent source of probiotics and its cheap to make. Kefir is another excellent source, can be home made also. IMHO the key with giving probiotics is to mix them around so that you give your dog many strains of probiotics and not just one.

 Re: Concerned About Supplements and Medications Given to Cat

Hey Yasmin!

I will check my conventional outlook at the door, and give your question a stab.

The fungal infection you are treating your cat for, requiring the itraconazole, requires about 8 weeks of treatment. It sounds as if your cat has a skin infection, rather than a lung infection. In your shoes, given the nature of the disease, I would check with the vet to be sure the infection is not also in the lungs.

And, if no infection in the lungs, and you stop treatment with the itraconazole, it would make sense to wean her off the liver supplements. And if your gut feeling is that liver support is needed on *some* level, since you feed a home made diet you can simply incorporate beef liver [or whatever liver you can buy] into the home made diet you prepare; feeding liver will help the liver.

Hey Jane!

I agree with Om that your post is very troubling; my 'take away' is a bit different. I have never heard of a vet threatening to report someone for cruelty/neglect - so *for sure* take her in for a second opinion ASAP.

As to the original diagnosis of gingivitis, periodontal disease and abscess - your first vet, and certainly the second opinion vet - should be able to show you these disease conditions in your dog's mouth, or at least point to symptoms present as to why the diagnosis of abcess was made [the other two conditions are obvious to the uneducated eye]. All three disease conditions with the bacteria and toxins associated with them, add stress to your dog's heart and kidneys. Failure to treat the mouth very easily and quickly can lead to cardiac complications and renal failure.

My only advice is to get the second opinion - possibly from a wholistic vet - to legally satisfy the first vet that you are not neglecting your dog, and to find a diagnosis you have faith in so you can begin the appropriate treatment of your choice ASAP.

Hey May Angeles!

If this were my puppy I would not hesitate to give him the AC & electrolyte solution -and right away. If your puppy is not acting right, and you suspect parvo or distemper - go with your gut and begin treating right away.
