 Re: Can Anything Help Boxer Who Leaks Urine Since She Got Fixed 3 Years Ago

Hi Valerie - my Lab had the same problem for the last few years. Our vet put her on stibestrol and it cleared up within a week. After that she needed one pill a week to maintain. Chance's problem was exactly what Theresa said, spay incontinence. It's not a natural remedy but certainly fixed the problem. Good luck!

Hey Leeniemud!

You can give your Pokie the spa treatment; massage olive oil into his coat and let him sit for 15 minutes, and then bath; do this inbetween mange treatment baths. Just do 1 shampoo after the oil treatment and towel really well - he will be oily, so towel well but do NOT get all the oil off; he will keep until the next bath/mange treatment.

I would also give him oils in his food - 1 teaspoon olive oil in his food am and pm; you can upgrade to higher quality oils like evening primrose oil or salmon oil, etc. -but in a pinch olive oil works well.

Hey Gina!

I would use Ted's mange remedy on ALL your dogs. It is safe for the puppies and will kill the walking dandruff mites. Make sure you clean and vacuum your home well, paying attention to where your pets bed down. You might also consider spreading borax down as an additional way to prevent reinfestation of the mites.

[WARNING!]  People should not own pets if they can't afford any or all emergencies that may come up.

Dogs are a gift to mankind and need to be treated as such.

Not taking a dog with bloat or symptoms of bloat: should be cause for the owner to give up the dog to someone who has the ability to take care of it properly. How much agony did this dog suffer?

This mixture didn't work for my samoyed at ALL! He started flipping out right away and rubbing his ear on the floor. It made it a heck of a lot worse!

 Bicarb Soda/Turmeric/Coconut Oil on Mammary Tumors

Sun, 03 May 15 08:14:00 -0500
Posted by Elpig (Scotland) on 05/02/2015

My 15yr old cat has a recurrence of mammary cancer 15 months after surgery to remove 2 clusters of tumors which were quite small.

There are 2 very small tumors, pea sized at the most. Been applying a paste of bicarbonate of soda, turmeric and coconut oil for just over a week. Started her on Essiac tea in her food today too. From applying the paste the whole area round the tumors is red and sore looking. Don't know whether to continue with the paste or not, any advice appreciated! :)

Hey Blake!

Please consult your vendor for VRM2 for dosage - and please report back as to what the maker of this product advises.

Typically dogs undergoing heartworm treatment are advised to take NO exercise and instead to observe strict crate rest, going outside to potty - and then right back to the crate.

Great, but very small sips at a tip if giving a lot of fluids orally. So they can swallow without choking.

Homeopathics can work very well too. E.g cantharis 10m and Tabucuum 10m. The 10m is the strength of the remedy. As strength of remedies can vary. Pat in a couple of drops of eac remedy on back of shoulder blades making sure it reaches the skin. Repeat ever half hour. Usually only 3 to 4 Repeat dosing is all that is needed.

Then as a prevention add a dose to meals three times a week.

Coconut Oil Helped Dog's Upset Stomach

Thu, 30 Apr 15 21:41:32 -0500
Posted by Buddy's Mom (Pueblo Of Acoma, Nm) on 04/30/2015

[YEA]  I gave Buddy, my rescue rottweiler/chow mix VCO for an upset stomach and it worked like a charm. He would not eat his food, which is totally not like him, but would eat lots of grass and then throw it up. I wasn't sure if he would like the VCO so I started with just a small amount on top of a small amount of food and he ate it right up. He went back outside so I watched him for an hour or two to see if he would throw up. He did not throw up, but came back inside, so I gave him a little more VCO and food and again he ate it all. The next day I gave him 1 tablespoon of VCO on his regular portion of food and he ate it all and seemed to have more energy and spunk. I have not seen him throw up or eat any more grass either. Thanks Earth Clinic!

One day later, after ear problem and he's back to his perky self and his ear is standing up straight again. When he was scratching and shaking his head, he was also sort of laying it down. But, all back to normal now.

And I want to add how nice it is to not feel so helpless about things. I was utterly helpless with my Lhaso Apso's miserable hot spots and this ear thing reminded me of when I had a horrific earache in the middle of the night, long before the internet came along.

I would bet that just knowing you all are here relieves a great deal of stress for a whole lot of people. I know it does for me. Thank you.

Like the other post. We had this problem for years!!!! All you need is Zymox Plus Otic-hc Enzymatic Solution. Kills it forever, in one week, and you can add it as often as you like. Forget all the expensive dog food changes and huge vet bills.

My cat had worms and I never knew until he threw one up. Medication wouldn't make him better and he was still sick-I didn't know what was wrong because he had a wormer at the vet more than a month earlier-sure enough he had worms, they were so bad the stongid didnt touch them. He was eating ok and he didnt have a bloated stomach etc.
