For AGING KITTY--- try slippery elm and make with a bit of good honey a paste and feed by hand. Please stay from harsh allopathic chemicals. Nothing invasive but supportive and healing. A tsp. chamomile tea on food or by itself. Slippery elm is very important; please read up on it.

Namaste, Om

Hello Nicky -- (Medina, Ohio) online you can obtain from ESSIAC WEST the four herb with all roots. Instructions will be included. On page 8, fourth para is what you need to do. I would start with 1/4 tsp in three oz hot water by syringe or baby spoon. Twice a day, working up to one tsp. This tea is very potent . Also see EC on ESSIAC section. I find Essiac works on the liver immediately plus where needed. My own experience.

Namaste, Om

Very sorry to hear about your kitty. I would be cautious about endoscopy/colonoscopy as these are quite challenging for an older pet who is not feeling well. Try to find gastro specialist in your area.......there should be one in Toronto. Also, I would experiment with different proteins(canned or dry) at this point.....this could simply be IBS and kitty may need to switch to novel protein/grain free/limited ingredient foods. Try buying small amount of various foods/ brands to see what she fancies and monitor her closely. Make sure she is drinking water as well. Good luck.

Urgent Help Requested for Dog with Bleeding Lesions on Liver

Hello, three weeks ago my dog had his spleen tumor removed with 75% chance of cancer and 25% non cancerous. We were thrilled when thy said it was benign. A week and a half later his stomach starts distending in and out, his legs getting weak. I took him back in to get an Ultrasound and it showed lesions on the liver that they say are bleeding. The vet said in all her years she has never seen this. A benign splenic mass and now this, my question is what can I give him to kill the Hermangiocarcoma. I gave him Yunnan Baiyao and I'm saying my prayers. If you could help my family would be so grateful.

Thank you in advance, Nicki

I need to make a correction in what I gave my kitty with cancer. I didn't give her Maitake 3 fraction, it was Maitake d-fraction. Sorry for the typo. I re-read this several times, but I missed it.

 Poodle Mom and Pups with Suspected Parvo

Hey Lesley!

I DITTO your message.

I will say that I was very skeptical at first hearing about some of the remedies suggested knowing as you do how deadly parvo is and how rapidly it can spread. Yet users did effect cures using home remedies.

When your pocket is empty and going to the vet simply is not an option [in the US vets are not required to save a life], some activated charcoal and pedialyte with a huge dose of TLC beats doing nothing at all - and just might save the pet.

Agree with Theresa on vinegar, but baking soda has really good anti itch properties so you could wash your dog with a mild solution of bakingsoda, rinse very thoroughly with plain water, followed by a final rinse of 50/50 vinegar and water.

[YEA]  I've been using molasses/baking soda for my 16 year old cat with oral squamous cell carcinoma which was discovered in Oct. 2013. Her veterinary treatment consisted of conventional methods using Clindamycin and Prednasone. After her last round of this in April 2014, the ulceration was still there. Out of desperation, I tried the molasses baking soda cancer cure. I've been treating her myself with this since the end of April 2014 and her level of stabilization has much improved. With conventional treatment, it was an "on" and "off" thing with rounds of medicine and in between rounds, the inflamed red ulceration in her mouth would come back big time. Although I've not cured my kitty, the massive ulceration hasn't returned since I've been using this treatment which has made a big improvement in maintaining her quality of life. In addition to the molasses/baking soda mixture, I also give her a standardized triple blend of Shiitake, Maitake, and Reishi mushrooms plus standardized Maitake 3-fraction. I've also found that KMR milk replacement to be a good choice to use when the inflammation in her mouth would worsen. I add in some other supplements as well and they can vary. At age 16, I know we're on borrowed time at best, but I'm glad to have been able to keep her for as long as I have. Roughly ninety percent of these cats are dead within one year of diagnosis. Fortunately, I still have my kitty, Mandi, and next month it will be one year since we started this journey together.

Hi Wendyben

I'm so sorry to hear about the death of one of your dogs and your Poodles + pups illness. I guess I'm going against the ethos of the site but I'm going to say it anyway. Parvo is a very serious, fast acting killer of dogs (especially pups) and I feel you need to treat this as an emergency and seek Vet treatment immediately. If you cannot afford it are there no local dog charities you could approach? In the UK (although not many people are aware of this) a Vet cannot refuse treatment in an acute emergency situation such as this just because the owner cannot pay up front, although they have a legal right to recover costs after treatment ie payment plan. How about calling your version

I'm sorry if suggesting convential medicine upsets this community, but Parvo is a very quick killer of puppies, and it's not the time to play around to see if holistic remedies might work. As adult humans we make a conscious choice to ignore conventional medicine and look for holistic alternatives. If faced with a fast acting killer disease we may well choose differently?? Your Pups can't make that choice and need you to act for them. If at all possible please see a Vet immediately.

 Re: Remedies for Mites in Dogs

Posted by Lesley (Uk) on 09/24/2014

I'm all for natural remedies wherever possible as an effective cure. But for the ladies who have posted and sound like they are suffering a living hell through a Mite infestation ( had one myself years back & the intense itching at night drove me crazy) why not just buy some Lyclear? Available over the counter in the UK & costs around 10.00 a tube and it DOES work. Ok, you might argue its a toxin you don't want to put on your body (pyrethin?? I think). But from your post it sounds like the long term physical & physiological trauma you are experiencing is a far more serious risk to your health and well being.

Hey The Duke!

I am sorry to hear about your senior kitty's illness. My only advice to you, and I know it falls very short, is this: listen to your kitty - ask *him* what *he* wants to do.

And - I poked around for you and found what looks to me to be a couple of excellent holistic veterinary resources:

East York Animal Clinic

www.holisticpetvet.com

Dr. Victoria Dale-Harris, Mobile Holistic Vet Srv www.holisticvetmed.ca

Sending healing prayers your way - please let us know how it goes!

Hello,

My 15-year old cat has been losing weight. Recently, he vomited more than usual and had had two bouts of bad diarrhea.

The conventional animal clinic did blood test and ultrasound on him but the results were inconclusive. They thought there are two possibilities - cancer or bowel disorder. The clinic now wants to do a colonoscopy.

Please advise?

Also, I am looking for a holistic vet in the Greater Toronto Area. Any recommendation would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

 Poodle Mom and Pups with Suspected Parvo

Hey Wendyben!

Sorry to hear about your chihuaha and now your poodle.

In your shoes I would give your poodle the mixture every 2-4 hours - it is something to play by ear, depending on how much your poodle takes each time, and how she responds. I would for sure treat all the puppies even if they show no signs of illness. Keep up this regimen until the parvo runs its course - 2 weeks maybe.

Sending prayers for a successful outcome for you...

 Side Effects from Steroid Shot Given to Dog

Tue, 23 Sep 14 17:32:29 -0500

Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 09/23/2014

Hey Judy!

This is typical for a steroid shot. Your dog will pant like crazy and have hot flashes -and will drink and drink and drink and then have to pee every 10 minutes. As the level of steroid in her system goes down, so will the symptoms you are seeing. Expect to see these intense symptoms for the first 2 weeks. The good thing is that the allergy itching will be better almost instantly.

 Remedies Needed for Anal Gland Issue in Cat

Tue, 23 Sep 14 17:30:00 -0500

Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 09/23/2014

Hey Vanya!

These are the first 9 ingredients in the diet you are currently feeding:

Brewers rice, chicken by-product meal, corn gluten meal, wheat gluten, chicken fat, corn, egg product, natural flavors, dried plain beet pulp, powdered cellulose,

You are feeding your cat grain based diet- this is totally NOT a good food despite what the package or your vet says.

To avoid making this a chronic thing, you should for sure consider switching brands to a diet that does not contain grains. Orijen, Fromm, Solid Gold make such diets but there are a bunch more out there. You will need to go to a specialty pet feed store to find the *good* commercial diets.

Sometimes all it takes is a grocery upgrade for the eczema and anal gland issues to resolve.

Remedies Needed for Anal Gland Issue in Cat

Posted by Vanya (Arlington, Va) on 09/23/2014

Hello all. Can someone help me with a cat with such issue...She is still only 5 months old and I saw a little enzema close to her neck which the veterinarian saw and realized she had some blockage in her anal glands. She is going to the toilet but I guess does not take all of it out so some poop stays inside which causes some fluid to build up and I guess it showed itself by an enzema on the neck. They gave her antibiotic and she will be fine but I do not want this to be a chronic thing...The Royal Canin food we use does have fiber and is supposed to be the best one for the age of 6-12 months but is there anything I need to cook for her...she does not eat too much and I have not given her anything but the well suited for her food.

Any advice will be really appreciated.

Best
