I have a 7lb chihuahua with tracheal collapse, not sure how this helps with that but I am willing to try anything. But knowing how much to administer would help too, if you would be so kind.

How often and for how long did you need to use coconut oil? My vet also said the same treatment was necessary..... But I looked up alternative methods and came across your post. I was lucky to have some raw coconut oil at home and tried it immediately. My cat was not fussy licking his paws with some coconut oil on them. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Have you tried bovine colostrum? it's the miracle cure in our house. My cat has almost doubled his life expectancy of 2 yrs. I haven't used it for allergies but I know it claims to work for them.

Reading a lot about ACV, my question is how long do you continue giving the ACV to the cat with a UTI? Is it an every day thing or until the cat is urinating normal..

Recently gave this to my 16 yr. old female cat who is now having Kidney issues and after the first dose, she had a BM. Very impressed because it had been 3 days since she had a BM. Now if I could find something to reverse her Kidney issues, life would be perfect :)

My beloved cat has nasal cancer too, although his is fibrosarcoma (as detected by a biopsy). I just ordered a 3 mo supply of ESSIAC for pets, from Canada, but now I am reading it doesn't have sheep sorrel ROOT, only the leaves. I don't know how essential the root is. But anyway, you can get the Essiac for Pets capsules on amazon. There are also quite a few suppliers of the herbs, so you can make the tea yourself. I also ordered organic tumeric..I am gonna try putting that in my cat's food, too. I figure, he will probably die soon as nasal cancer is horrible, so I might as well try homeopathic methods that have worked for others.

My dog, a dandie dinmont terrier, suffers from MVS, CHF, and heart murmur. hes on all 4 of the meds that you mentioned and I also, like you, researched what else was out there to help them. the regimen I use is very similar to yours...i use a lot of standard process supplements and COQ10 is really amazing. his cardiologist gave oscar about 6 months back in may when he had his first failure and had to spend 3 days in an oxygen tank. after 3-4 months of his medication plus the supplement program I developed for him, hes the most energetic ive seen him in years! I was bringing him in for check ups every month. the last one, in october, his doctor was amazed at his disposition and told me unless I obviously need to, he doesn't need another check up for 5-6 months! These supplements DO work and im so glad its catching on. even if it does end up shortening his life, at least I know he's comfortable and happy. if he doesnt have quality of life, theres no point.

Ivomec Cured Stray Cat's Mange

Ivomec cured a stray's mange. Cat had severe mange over entire body, eyes were scabbed over to the point I was sure it would die if something wasn't done it basically was laying down barely moving. I thought what do I have to lose, it will die if something isn't done.(I had tried for weeks to trap it...was not going to happen.)

Spoke to a holistic vets secretary who didn't know the amount of ivomec but suggested as a last ditch effort. She said it was bitter and to mix it with small, quarter size amount of molasses. Looked online. I used approx. two drops 10lb cat (powerful stuff) mixed with can of fish cat food and it ate it up. It hid under barn and I didn't see the cat again for a couple weeks (it use to eat around the neighborhood) When it showed up it was beautiful! Couldn't believe it. Read to dose again in one month, I did, cats doing great. This would be great for ear mites, if your unable to get or handle cat. Ivomec is found in feed stores, I use to use it for heartworms for my dogs. A little expensive so buy an expiration date way in the future. Might even ask online, maybe craigs list, if someone using it for dogs can spare a small amount put in a syringe for later. If you manage a large feral cat population this could be very handy and save a few cats.

My 18 year old cat started this a year ago. I didn't want to go to the vet and get a rx for special cat food, I just wanted to figure out why the rx food was different and diy. Finally figured out, it's iodide in the cat food. I must have googled my brains out. I didn't see iodide is bad! Anywhere! Like it's wiped from the internet. It was a chance comment I researched. IT'S literally in all stupid canned / dry cat food. YES my mom and me read almost every cat food can in the Petstore. So I stopped feeding her cat food. Within 3 days she went back to eating every 12 hours, stopped the incessant meowing and hunger/thirst and her coat was better and she gained weight. I couldn't f Word BELIEVE it! Frigging cat food was the problem. I actually do get the frozen cat food from the fridge in the pet store now because, No Iodide. It's packed with nutrition and is more pricey but you can control portion size. She gets that once a day and anything but CAT FOOD once a day. Usually raw chicken or whatever meat is in the fridge. I'll even give her turkey lunch meat but I prefer raw meat chopped up with a dash of coconut oil. The one that is netural so it doesn't taste like coconut. PH balanced water and a couple drops of diluted ACV 3 or 4 times a week. I've also treated her with food grade hydrogen peroxide drops in her water. She was a damn kitten again after 2 weeks. She had like 3 paws in the pet cemetery and that was 6 years ago.

Join the club. I've been going through the same thing. My cat is only 8 years old she's gorgeous looks healthy but has had this megacolon issue ongoing for 3 years now. I went to a vet when I was living in San Antonio that before they even diagnosed her proceeded to take her teeth out and a plethora of other unfortunates operations before diagnosing her with megacolon. She is now on docusate cisapride and lactulose. Anything and everything I feel could bring her back to where she was before. I'm scared to death.. it's awful because she's not supposed to be sick she looks so healthy. And I'm also dealing with the whole vet trouble from San Antonio to moving back Houston the same thing. The last three years I've spent over $6,000 dealing with this. She's using the bathroom everyday now but she goes up and down every day and every couple of days she looks bloated or something's going on. I don't know what to do.

Julie, I have a paid subscription to his newsletter called HealthAlert. This is where I've learned about some of Bruce West's protocols.

Ali, my dog's heart condition is classified as mild so his supplementation is different from what is being discussed above.

My longhaired black cat experienced paralysis days after receiving a rabies vaccine. First the one back leg then both - then the front paws which became stiff and it progressed to his ability to swallow within days. I lost him on December 30 last year. He was such a beautiful boy - I will never allow a vet to vaccinate my animals again!

Palliative Care for Dog Mast Cell Tumor

My dog was diagnosed with mast cell tumors at 13 years of age. Here is what we did for him palliatively, since he was so old that surgery was out of the question.

When it presented, one of his fatty tumors ballooned to twice its normal size. The vet gave him a biopsy that confirmed mast cells. Within a week, it had perforated and left a huge, hamburgerish hole in his side that we were told to keep covered, and that it would probably not heal.

Bandages are expensive, so I ordered organic, reusable bamboo breast pads online (10 pack) to use in place of primary bandages. We asked around and received about 10 ace bandages that we used to secure the primary bandages, then bought a rigid back brace to wrap over the top of the primary and ace bandages to make it harder for Skipper to access the wound.

At first we were changing the breast pads several times a day, and each time we would slather one of the following:

  • Cold pressed, hexane free castor oil
  • EVCO
  • Vitamin E oil

To these we would sometimes add turmeric, Lugols iodine. Definitely added Yunnan Baiyou to wound at first when it was bleeding so bad, and also included a pill or two internally the first week. After he healed, we put Dr. Schultze's drawing poultice (look at Curezone for recipe) overnight, and left all bandages off during the day.

After about 6 weeks, the wound closed up completely. We frequently put ice packs over the bandage system to keep him comfortable when the sore would flare up.

Onto the supplements we had him on:

  • CannaCompanion cannabis (see their website for specifications)
  • Vet prescribed anti-inflammatory
  • Turmeric and pepper pills found at Costco
  • Green Mush pills (you have to assemble capsules yourself, unless your dog will eat Green Mush mixed into food)
  • 2 Benadryll
  • 1 Tagamet
  • Activated charcoal & Psyllium
  • Pribiotic
  • Indica just before bedtime towards the end

I attached his regimen. He was put to sleep about a week and a half ago, but I know he would have died sooner and been more uncomfortable had we not followed this protocol. Hope this helps someone out there!

Apple Cider Vinegar, Cranberry for Cystitis in Cat

My tabby started to vomit then laid around on the heated mat all day/night, wasn't eating or peeing at all. Took him to ER where his bladder was drained, there was blood present. I didn't know what to do, so that morning I mixed 1/8 capsule Cranberry Concentrate in a tiny amount of canned food when he could eat. Later that day he seemed to feel abit better. That night added 3 drops apple cider vinegar (don't use white vinegar!!! ) to it. He peed next day and proceeded to get better each day. These two natural remedies saved my kitty😊
