I would like to try the gel on her ear. She has two hematomas again. Would it take very long for it to work? she is 13 and I don't want to put her through surgery.

You can make colloidal copper 2 ways, one the same as colloidal silver, or put pure copper wire in glass pot of distiled water and a pinch of citric acid, simmer 6 hours and use a parts per million tester that I bought at home depo. buy pure aspirin at health food store or animal feed store, it has no cemicols in it like the aspirin you buy at the grocery stores. I than took a gallon of distilled water added about an ounce to get about 10 parts per million. than I put it in the dogs dish and he drank it when he was thirsty, abot 2 weeks of doing this and now he plays like a puppy. Best is go to and where I got it from, u tube, Power of colloidal copper, by Tony Pantalleresco, he has the best cures of anyone I have found.

My Golden Retriever had the Lymes vaccine and within two days she was lethargic, crying and could not get up by herself. After taking her to the vet they gave her aspirin saying they thought it was an ACL injury. A month later she was still not well, in fact worse. We had xrays for her hips and decided it was not hip displaysa. After going to another vet they decided it was due to the Lymes vaccine. It is attacking her. Her muscles in her legs would shake and she could not get up by herself. We have put her on prednisone and she is better however when we lower the dose to 1/2 pill every other day she goes back down hill, so then we have to go back up to the previous dose of 1/2 pill every day. We don't know if she will ever get off of the Prednisone. This has been going on since April 2016 and it is now the end of September. If anyone has any suggestions I would like to hear them.

Turmeric for Skin Issues in Dogs

Hi. we have been giving our two sausage dogs turmeric for a while now. We simply rub it into the meaty part of their early morning bone. They love it. The 15 year old had developed little weepy like warts which she used to scratch. After a few weeks we noticed the warts had completely dried. No more weeping or scratching. Both dogs dance for their bone in the morning. It brings us great joy.

my daughters dog is 6 months old has had 4 sets of shots including parvo. as I type this she is fighting for her life at the vet with parvo. She has been sick for 2 days but we never thought of parvo because she had all of her shots. So I guess dogs can get it even if they are vaccinated by a vet.

The best way to treat pets is without the poison chemical in Advantix and other formulas.

More and more people are realising that dog food and flea meds cause fatal diseases.

Dear Luna,

Apple cider vinegar should always be diluted for use on pets. For the face, I would try 1 tablespoon in 1/2 cup water.

Obviously this response is 5 years late but if anyone else is reading. My cocker spaniel has been suffering (unknown to me) with a systemic yeast infection for 2 years and horrible ear infections for even longer. He has the yeasty smell, scabby skin, black tar-like skin under his mouth, on his neck, belly and legs. Thousands of dollars in Vet bills later (all claiming allergies as other people have experienced) I started doing my own research. Everything pointed to a severe yeast infection. Immediately I moved him to a raw diet with probiotic and enzymes, added ACV to his water and started bathing regularly with anti fungal shampoo. I also read about this Blue Power Ear Formula that you make at home. I ordered the ingredients and mixed it up and after only a week of using it daily to flush his ears, they look better than they ever have! I highly recommend this to anyone who has a dog suffering with ear infections.

We are 3 weeks into the diet changes and his eyes seem clearer, his scabs are still all over his body but seem to be drying out and he seems to have more energy but he still smells horribly yeasty and itches a lot. I keep hearing about a detox time. How long till he really starts looking and smelling better?

Borax and Hydrogen Peroxide Helping Dog's Skin Condition

Hi All,

Just to add my 2 cents. My dog is a six year old Shih tzu cross, had him three years. Always had a patch on his lower back ("blackheads" in the pores and on the hair). Not obvious unless clipped short.

I would paint the area with chlorhexidine and forget about it until the next clipping. A few months back I noticed dried blood. The area has started to ulcerate and spread up his back. The area is itchy and he does not like you touching it.

Now I had to look more carefully, many possible reasons (and there can be primary and secondary causes):

1 Allergies

2 Fungal

3 Bacterial

4 Mites

5 Fleas and tics

As the affected area was on his back where soap is applied when bathed, I changed to a low allergenic shampoo and reduced the frequency of baths from 2 weekly to 6 weekly (he is not a smelly dog! ).

-> No change after three months, getting worse so we discounted an allergic reaction (although we did not try an antihistamine).

We then hit him with a round of antibiotics and chlorhexidine wash.

That cleaned up the skin infection but no improvement beyond that.

So when on holidays for a week and upon return and his next bath the condition had worsened. He starting to loss hair and the skin quite ulcerated and bleeding.

Okay, off to the vet (the vet is useless, her diagnosis was flea bite dermatosis but at least we got another round of antibiotics).

So we clipped the area so we an see it better and started the another round of antibiotics and chlorhexidine wash.

After two days the skin was looking better so we painted the area with borax and peroxide solution with a cotton swab.

After the treatment I examined the cotton swab and the remaining discoloured solution under a mag-light (my eyesight is not very good anymore) in a white plastic container. Although the mag-light is only x2 I could see a couple of the mites wiggling in the solution (tiny black carrots a fraction of a millimeter in length).

That night the skin looked better and some "blackheads" where now "whiteheads".

The next day he skin was a bit scaly. After the second treatment I could only see only dead mites in the contaminated solution. An hour or so later, some of his "blackhead" pores had opened up.

So it is working very well so far. Not all the blackheads are gone but they are disappearing.

We intent to do a full dip of all our dogs in the next few days.

I chose to use borax and peroxide over other remedies because they are both safe to use on "your own" skin.

Regards AlanC

I make pancakes with flax for my dog with cushing. I use flax, pumpkin and water. She loves them and it has greatly reduced her symptoms. I make up a large batch and freeze them so I dont have to make them often. I give her one in the morning and evening. Also give her melatonin.

Colloidal Copper and Aspirin for Dog's Cancer

Colloidal copper and pure aspirin, cured my dog's cancer. 3 different vets said he would die anywhere from 3 days to 3 months and wanted to do chemo on him and of course charge me a lot of money to kill him with it. So instead I used colloidal copper and pure aspirin, in days he picked up and in a few weeks was playing like a puppy, he is 11 or 12 years old and never wanted to play before.
