  Re: Activated Charcoal for Puppy with Parvo
Wed, 30 Jul 14 08:59:21 -0500

07/30/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Rebecca!

You can find AC at your local drug store; aquariums stores have some in a pinch, but its granulated and you would need to use a coffee grinder or food processor to pulverize it into fine powder.

Activated Charcoal works especially well when used with electrolytes to combat the dehydration that occurs with the diarrhea. You can make this recipe at home:

Homemade Pedialyte
4 cups of water (boiled or bottled drinking water) 1/2 teaspoon Morton lite salt (because it has potassium in it as well as sodium chloride) Can use regular table salt if you have to. 2 Tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon flavored jello or sodium free broth to add some flavor

Start with 1 cup of electrolyte solution in a small jar with a lid; add 2 heaping tablespoons of AC and then put the lid on and shake to blend. This goes into a syringe well and then can be placed into your dog's mouth; tip the head back and gently depress the plunger to allow him to drink it slowly.

Dose him 10cc every 2-4 hours for the first 48 hours.

If your dog has an appetite, you can mix the AC into canned dog food and make that a bit wetter and sloppier by adding the electrolyte solution to the wet food.

It is key to understand that the virus generally does not kill the dog - its the resulting dehydration that does the damage - so make sure you get those electrolytes down.

If he is taking food and appears to be bouncing back after the first regime of 48 hours, give your dog the wet AC and electrolyte loaded food am and pm for 5 days and up to 7 days. If he is hungry between meals, give him extra AC and electrolyte feedings.

Good luck and please keep us posted!

07/30/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Heather!

Bright red blood in stools *can* be normal. I need more info to a better opinion.

You have two 8 week old kittens - are they new to your house, or did you raise them from birth?

Have you changed their diet recently?

Are the stools normal on consistency or loose and runny or mucousy?

Have they ever been wormed?

Re: Apple Cider Vinegar for Cat with UTI
Tue, 29 Jul 14 12:26:19 -0500

[YEA]  07/29/2014: Sarah from Rhode Island: "I read earth clinic all the the time and I truly believe in holistic remedies for most illnesses. Last night, my 1yr old neutered male cat was straining, crying in the litter box with no production of urine. He made mutiple attempts, even found him squatting in the living room and yelping, obsessively licking his genitals. As an owner of many cats over the years, I knew exactly what we were dealing with. I just do not have the money to pay those vet bills and I KNOW there is a natural remedy that I could at least attempt before taking him to the vet. I ran to the store and bought a bottle of Apple cider vinegar, couldn't find organic with mother at the local grocery store so I settled for filtered. Immediately mixed it up with water 1 part acv, 3 parts water, put some in his water, and in his food. Pushed some through a syringe into his mouth and soaked his neck and random parts of his body so he would lick it up. Did this a few times between 6pm and 9pm and by 10pm he had peed in his box without straining. We woke up this morning and he had gone in his box even more. He is back to his playful self, eating, (reluctantly) drinking his Apple Cider Vinegar water (haha). Definately helped...I am going to continue with an organic brand for a while and see how it turns out. Definately worked as of right now. In the past, my cats would've been in emergency status at this point in a uti. I am very happy.

Make sure you dilute the Apple Cider Vinegar as much as you can, from all that I read, Holistic Vets only reccommend 1/4tsp twice a day, so they dont NEED that much but it cant hurt to push fluids. If your kitty isn't urinating at all after 12hrs he needs medical attention. That is too long to be blocked up."

  Re: Apple Cider Vinegar and Castile Soap for Fleas
Tue, 29 Jul 14 12:06:14 -0500

07/29/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Liquid castile soap is made up of lye and olive oil; I wonder if the lye component is what kills the fleas. I always thought the soap broke down the flea's oil barrier which in turn allowed the flea to drown. In any event, I have had great results bathing dogs in Murphy's Oil Soap- the kind for wood floors, as well as any of the Dr. Bronner's products."

07/29/2014: Suzie from Dallas, Tx: "The absolute best home remedies for killing fleas on dogs and even pregnant dogs and pups is a bath in pure liquid Castile Soap, unscented. This soap alone kills fleas and it's completely safe for your dogs coat and skin! You can also mix it up in a sprayer to spray your yard. I also use Apple Cider Vinegar to spray on my dogs and in the home to kill the Fleas. Use 1/4 cup ACV with 3/4 cup water. You can also squeeze some lemon in the bottle in addition to the ACV. Spray the dogs, furniture, bedding, rugs, etc. these remedies work and do not harm your pet."

Ideally you would dose your pet via a syringe or dropper by tipping his head back and inserting the syringe in the pocket of his cheek at the back of his mouth and then depressing the plunger slowly to allow him to swallow."

07/29/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Diamond!

How sad that you had such an unproductive visit at the vet.

Please know you DO have options! You can ask for the vet to see your animal and not settle for the vet tech. Granted, some tech are very experienced and do a great job, but if you feel you are not getting the service you are paying for, then state so to the tech and ask to have the vet see your animal. Next, why did the tech wish to take an xray? You should ask why a particular procedure is indicated so you can make an informed judgement as to how to proceed. And while worming your cat may have been something needed, my experience with cat's upchucking foamy substances has nothing to do with worms, but possibly something to do with an obstruction of the GI tract, which an xray could have revealed if it were indeed present. [A savvy vet or vet tech would also be able to palpate and feel if this were an issue as well].

Again, so sorry you did not get satisfaction with the vet you chose to use; remember, you can always shop around to find a vet you can work with as a healing team for your pets. I hope your cat does well on the ACV treatment you have chosen."

07/29/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Scott!

You can safely use Q-tips inside your cat's ears. The key is to never insert the Q-tip past where you can see. If you cannot see the end of the Q-tip, then you risk rupturing your pet's ear drum. So if you only use in areas that you can see, you can safely use Q-tips in your cat's ear."

07/29/2014: Theresa from Mpls., Mn: "Hey Diane!

What works for some may not work for all - but it might be just perfect for you!

I say this because I know many raw feeders who feed chicken necks, frames, backs, wings and thighs with no issues whatsoever.

I believe what is key is that your pet who is used to kibble be carefully introduced to raw bones so they learn how to eat them. Puppies started on bones this way have no issues with chicken bones.

Probably the easiest bone to introduce is a chicken neck; this is also perfect for cats and does a great job on cleaning their teeth. A raw chicken neck fed to a cat who needs a dental usually results in a cancelled vet appointment :)"

Re: Epsom Salt for Cat Acne
Mon, 28 Jul 14 07:21:28 -0500

07/28/2014: Mich from Vancouver, CA: "My cat had severe cat acne a few years ago. blackheads on his chin which the grouped together and formed large infected pimples. I tried everything the vet prescribed. Long very emotional time. I isolated the cause to a food allergy (beef) or a plastic (my husband moved his guitar amp in the house and our cat liked to rub his chin against it)

There is a simple and safe solution:

If the acne is only at the blackhead stage all you need is epson salt. 2-3 times a day take a bowl with hot water and a clean cloth. pour a generous 2-3 tablespoons salt on a fresh hot discloth and put this on your cat's chin. let the steam get in the pores and gently massage the espon salts into the chin in circular motion. Obviously make sure the cloth is not so hot as to scald the chin - just a nice hot cloth.

If you are unlucky enough to have reached the stage where your cat has blackheads AND infected pimples follow the procedure above and go to the drugstore and get the lowest volume iodine. once to twice a day pour some of the iodine on your cats chin after you do the epson routine. make sure not to get any in your cat's mouth.

That's it. the acne will be gone.

I know use this procedure for any small small cuts. It is an old remedy for cleaning infections that has been used on humans for a long time."
