Are you using organic ACV or regular? If you are using anything but organic, that may be your issue.

We finished 3 rounds of VRM2 on Sept. 5, now

I am continuing giving her garlic, once daily, plus HSSII (heart support) and also I give her Chinese formula Kidney support (will post the name later- It is recommended by Cheryl Schwartz in the book Four Paws, Five Directions: A Guide to chines Medicine for Cats and Dogs. And this week I also started to add some turmeric once a day (just a dash) plus (after reading on earthclinic page) serrapeptase.

As it is now, I am not sure whether she got more energy or she started to feel at home (we got her less than 3 months ago, someone dumped her in our village): she is running around now, even jumping and try to play with other dogs. At first (till recently) she was mainly lying down.

I'll do test beginning of December and will report. I also appreciate if anyone sees the report re. results of other protocols and draw my attention.

I really hope that treatment works!

We used DE earth (food grade) on our cats and dog and we still have a problem with fleas, however, I made a mixture of DE earth, baking soda and sea salt (fine) sprinkled all over our bedroom floor because our animals like sleeping in the room no more door stays closed after doing this. Vacuumed after 8 hours haven't seen any fleas in room now we must still take care of the rest we use vet+best for all three kills in seconds on contact rub in fur and comb out the dead and wipe with wet cloth was told safe for them to lick if not all off.

ACV worked for us! My cat Jasmine also had a bladder stone. The first time it happened the vet said she needed surgery. $700 later and she was fine after the surgery. I also changed her kibble to 9 Lives urinary and give her wet food (no tuna! ) every day. Then a year ago she started having the same symptoms again. Crystals and blood in her urine, peeing only a few drops at a time and never in the litter box. This time I didn't have the money for surgery and I didn't want to put her through it if I could find another remedy. So I checked here at Earth Clinic and tried the ACV treatment. It worked like a charm! She's been fine ever since - no crystals! I put a couple of drops in some filtered water and mix it in her wet food every morning. The amount of ACV to give might differ for other cats. I use organic raw ACV with the mother.

The CS and ACV dabbing on the spots cured your cats of RW?

Just curious how long it took as I am doing the same doing a diluted APV and water wipe twice daily and also putting CS in their drinking water and food, about a teaspoon in their wet food twice a day and a teaspoon in their water daily, I use Mesosilver (Pure True Colloidal Silver) We just started 2 days in. Luckily it isn't spreading on them, Fingers crossed.

I hear it takes at least 5 days of CS ingestion to start clearing. We are taking it too so we don't get RW.

Anyone else have luck with Colloidal silver/Apple Cider Vinegar?

Turmeric Helped Heal Cough in Cat

My 8 year old neutered cat Alex, cough badly especially after eating. He had UTI. I thought that was the cause. He sounded like he had the croup. He brought up his meal or any hair with bile. He lost weight, fluids. But still wanted to play and have his belly rubbed. I took him to the vet many times. The glands on his neck was swollen on his right side. When the doctor touched it, he went into a violent coughing fit. Bile and all. They gave him steroids, shots for the coughing, medications for the UTI, etc.. The UTI was gone, but Alex still coughed up bile. One day, he coughed and would pee on himself. I always preferred natural/organic healing with my animals and myself.

The vets bills were killing me and no results, I stopped the steroids and did with turmeric. Instantly he stopped coughing and kept his food down. I had him in a huge cage with a little box so I could watch him. When he did cough he stayed in the little box instead of the floor. He started to gain weight and now is on his way of making a full recovery.

You wrote "dmso mixed with organic cold filtered apple cider vinegar with the mother. Also honey and coconut oil."

Can you be more explicit on the exact measurments. I am thinking of using DMSO to drive in honey into a tumor or cyst on my cat's chest. I have heard that a bee keeper swears that honey is the only cure for cancer.

I don't use vets. When this growth was small it used to drain to nothing and then fill up again so I think it is not a tumor. Nothing I have tried in the past two years including Essiac, has worked.

When you rub the mixture on the fur do you think the fur absorbs the dmso into the body? Also, is cleanliness the reason you rub the fur with rubbing alcohol first?

This dmso is liquid in a plastic bottle. Am I going to rub plastic into my cat?

I am afraid to put the dmso directly on the growth for fear of getting a skin reaction.

The problem I have is that this growth seems to escape (just behind her left arm pit on her chest) any bandaging I have used.

Do you not use fresh aloe? Why the taurine?

Hi, I have Rosie 8 year old staffy who has anal gland problems her whole life. I visit the vet regularly to get them emptied I've just read that pumpkin could help. She eats raw beef mince with boiled rice and grated carrots as her meal. She is 28 kg how much and how often should I give the puréed pumpkin to her? She sleeps in the house so when she leaks the smell is horrible

Hi, what brand of CS did you use?

I have a kitten getting over it and now my other cat has it, I have been putting CS in their water bowl and giving them about a teaspoon a day in their wet food twice daily...Should I up it? I also wipe them down with ACV twice daily and spray my apt with CS every night plus vacuum daily.

Hello Henna,

It is very common for a female who was spayed very young to develop incontinence when they hit senior-hood. There are inexpensive medications that can help with bladder tone to stop the leaks. I am concerned about the weight loss - it could mean something else is happening. Senior-hood has it's share of maladies: diabetes and early onset renal failure come to mind. Please take Ghogetta to the vet and have these conditions ruled out as you check out medications to address the incontinence. In the mean time daily washing with simple soap such as Ivory and a wash cloth 4-5 times day/as needed will help with the skin - and if it gets dry you can rub in coconut oil to help keep the skin healthy. And please report back!!

Hello Paul,

There is no 'one brand is best' - but the better brands have real ingredients, are not loaded with sugars and colors and list out the type and amount of probiotics they contain. If your dog is sensitive to dairy, you might skip yogurt and try raw sauer kraut, or hit the human health store and visit the refrigerated section to see the probiotics and types of acidophillus available. As for ACV as long as it is organic, raw and unfilitered/with the mother, you should be good.

One thing I am curious about is what you were feeding your puppy when the skin eruptions began; it is possible the diet you were feeding created the skin problems and it is possible if you correct the diet you may not need the prescription diet you are now feeding. Corn based diets wreak havoc on some dogs and cause skin issues and sensitivities to foods and UTIs. Once the dog has a problem created by the corn/grain based diet you can treat the symptoms but it does little to effect a cure. You might consider Ted's Borax Protocol for dogs and alkalizing your dog's drinking water to combat the yeast from the inside out. Please report back!

Hello Desertmoonchild,

I know the vet is expensive, but it may be cheaper in the long run to pay for a vet and get a prescription for the antifungal meds that you can fill cheaply online than to delay treatment while you look for cheaper options than your vet.

That said, check out all of these links from the post above:

Valley Fever - Coccidioidomycosis - is a fungal infection of the lungs.

To start, it would be a good idea to alkalize your dog's system to create a hostile environment for the fungus. This is easily done by adding baking soda to your dog's water. Read up and choose a formula here:

Sublimed Sulpher may be an option for you - info here:

Consider Oregano Oil for its antifungal properties:

Colloidal Silver may also be indicated for your dog:

Consider treating nutritionally for Candida, as yeast and fungus are one in the same:

Lastly, consider inhalation of food grade hydrogen peroxide:

These remedies are commonly available and may be found at your drugstore, whole foods co-op or health/vitamin store. I find when I need to dose many pills that it helps to put the pills in a ball of canned wet food. You can even dose the liquids in this way by putting them in a size 00 gel cap available at most pharmacies.

**In addition to the above often homeopathic remedies tend to be on the less expensive/more affordable end of the scale. Please read up on using homeopathy to treat Valley Fever:

Please report back!

Our six month old puppy has skin allergies, he has hives and welts under his skin and itching he's being treated with steroids and prescription diet n medical shampoo. I wanted to see if treating for yeast infections would be best to use both apple vinegar cider and yogurt together or just use one of the products or if one is better than the other. What would be best type brand yogurt to use. Thanks, Paul

I know this post is old but I had to comment on how you "shot" the solution into your dog's mouth. The proper way to give an animal any liquid from a syringe is to fill the syringe and put it inside the cheek (between the teeth and cheek) and slowly squirt the solution in. Otherwise the animal may aspirate the solution into the lungs. I lost an animal that way.
