It is the dark kind, but it is very specifically the Apple Cider Vinegar that is organic, raw/unpasturized, 'with the mother'/live cultures type. The clear or white vinegar is mainly used for cleaning or pickling.

I have a poodle mix; he is 11 yrs old. Last year after a grooming at a chain grooming store he began having seizures, then after a couple of months he started losing his hair on his back, that grooming took place in the summer of 2012.
His hair has not grown back. I believe the groomer was new, I believe she used a toxic flea bath to cause both the seizures and hair loss. I spoke to the mgr. he denied that this happened. My Teddy also used to scratch and lick but when I switched to a glutten free dog food which was suggested to me by a clerk in a pet store, he stopped licking himself. That was before the flea bath insident.

How's your dog doing? I'm scared my cat has tumor, but I've heard of essiac years ago. My 85 yr old friend suppressed 5 tumors with it. Bad flu virus got him and wife, doctors discourage people. I'm looking for support for my cat. Let me know what happened. I'm proud to hear of you brave pioneers, as I am also.

[DEATH REPORTED] My dog was prescribed Ketoconazole and cefpodoxime for an ear Infection. 2 weeks later he passed away. I brought it up to the vet and he said that liver failure is a rare side effect. I asked when he prescribed the medication what side effects there were. He only said vomiting and diarrhea. If he would of told me liver failure it's possible that I would have asked for an alternative medication. I am so sorry I ever gave my dog that medication without researching it myself. Don't trust your vet or the drug companies. Do your homework. I learned the hard way.

[YEA] My mini dachshund puppy was diagnosed with Parvovirus a few years ago. She was vomiting, lethargic and had bloody diarreah. I went online and researched and there is a vet who works for a rescue shelter in North Carolina that has been curing cats and dogs with Parvovirus by giving them Tamiflu liquid (baby dosage), with a 100% cure rate.
I contacted him and he emailed me the dosage and instructions for my pup. My local vet reluctantly wrote the script and I had it filled at the drug store. After being on Tamiflu for 24 hours, the vomiting/diarreah stopped and she began eating on her own. She was completely recovered in 3 days. I also gave her PediaLight by syringe to keep her hydrated.
Tamiflu is an antiviral and Parvo is a deadly virus, very much like influenza. Although, Tamiflu is not a natural remedy, it definitely will cure Parvo if it is caught early enough.
I hope this helps someone.

While you were giving your dog the black walnut and garlic treatment you were also giving the dog a monthly dose of the conventional heartworm prevention like heartguard? I rescued my dog and took her to the vet and just find out she is heartworm positive. Thanks for the info. In advance!

Ted's mange remedy is perfectly safe for mom and nursing puppies. Time the bath for after the pups have nursed and are sleeping. You will need to keep the mom damp for at least half an hour after you take her from the tub, so heat up a room where she can drip dry in a crate and then let her out after half an hour and either blow dry or towel dry - just make sure she is dry when she goes back to the pups; if she is very damp the pups will become damp and then catch a chill, so be very careful that she is as dry as possible and that the room is warm.

RAW feeder friends of mine feed it all - neck bones, skulls, you name it. You might consider getting a meat grinder and grinding up the chicken leg bones. Most dogs that are weaned onto raw learn how to eat all the bones properly - but for those that are new to it the grinder works like a charm.

[YEA] My just over a year old fixed indoor cat started displaying signs of cystitis or toxicity due to my lovely Christmas tree or my bad diet choices for him....blood in his urine... long before I could figure it out. Most recently ( 2 days ago) started howling in pain. Urinating in weird places; not his litter box as he is well trained. Became incontinent, loss of appetite, lethargy, hissing. I thought he was stressed or maybe just picked up "amother" animals scent or was just trying to mark his territory.
This is what got my attention. I thought my baby was dying!! My heart dropped. After doing some research on the interwebs and contacting friends, I came to discover that 90% of all brands of dry cat food are bad for our feline companions. I started my boy on a mix of apple cider vinegar mixed with water last night. As he is a fussy drinker and will not drink standing water, I dripped the mixture on his paws and torso... Places where he could groom himself at first. I had already gotten myself a 5ml syringe and used the same mixture two hours later to syringe feed (drink) orally. Gave him natural wet food with the same mixture every 2 hours. Syringe feeding him the mixture of liquid in between. BAM!! He is showing amazing and significant signs of improvement!!! I am so relieved!! Be sure to check ingriedents... you will figure it out with some more research... I'm switching to an all natural brand of food for my boy from now on And putting a cage around our Christmas tree! Lol. Hope we Have helped.

We used 1/2 Tablespoon of ACV to 1 1/2 Tablespoons of water. You are using the wrong amounts of each. Please don't feed your cats ANY dry foods. Only wet. The most important thing is water and making sure your cat is REALLY getting enough.

[YEA] What an amazing site! Thank you all so much!
My cat Martin is turning 17 in January, 2015 and has struggled with gastritis, arthritis and asthma for years. Thanks to this forum, I've added aloe to his diet - he is a different cat! I also use Cold Laser treatments twice p/month to address the arthritis, also very, very effective with pain control (so much so that he is now off Metacam! ).
NOTE: Please be CAREFUL with the Aloe. ONLY Inner Leaf is actually recommended for pets - NOT whole leaf. I personally use Organic Aloe Vera Gel from inner leaf only, 1/2 tsp per wet meal x twice p/day.

I have been feeding my dog raw food for quite a few years. I'm still having a hard time getting over the bone issue. I've given bones but never chicken legs. Could you give me some advice on the bones and what bones you feed?

Sue --- at a pharmacy you can ask for syringes for that purpose. They have very slim syringes and sizes up. You make the tea according to directions on printed instructions booklet. Take the page 8, para. 4..from ESSIAC WEST.
Give one dose with hot water added because the tea needs to be refrigerated, once or twice a day on empty stomach. Do not give more, rather less; this is all explained.
Hope this answers your question.

I have an 8 yr. old male cat no issues, what can I give him daily - something natural that will prevent kidney, bladder stone issues, etc. At many healthstores there are products for people called stones no more, and or prevention of this issue, there must be something I can do. I'm challenged financially so a thousand dollar surgery for such issue would be impossible, and I hear that pet ins. you have to start it on your pet when it is very young, so how can we assist our pets well being with a dose of prevention?
