Hey Connie,

You might see if the homeopathic remedies Thuja and Silicea will help your pet. These remedies have been helpful in negating side effects from vaccines.

Urgently Seeking Dosage of Essiac Tea for Cat With Lymphoma

Posted by Sam (Sa) on 11/17/2016


My 8/9yr old cat Maloo had sneezing for a while and was diagnosed with URI and put on antibiotics. It cleared it for a few weeks then it came back. We had been through the URI the year before and I pulled him through. This time it was different. So to the vets. He went under for surgery and the devastating news came this Tues that he has lymphoma. Not sure what kind however he is also FIV.

I am looking into using Essiac tea and hope to save him. I want him in our lives for many more years to come. I took him off the antibiotics as he was not eating. He is now eating and grooming again. However still sneezing a bit. Can anyone tell me ASAP a dose to give him and also any tips for a super fussy cat to get it into? How long do you give it for and how would you know if it is working? Will he bleed from nose?

Thank you for any advice and tips. Love to you all and your fur babies.

I have a 9 yr old spayed BC girl who has an aural hematoma. I just ordered the arnica oil. Is this better than the gel form? She is also itching and scratching, and does not have fleas.

What is EVCO? My yellow lab (2 yrs.) has a terrible ear yeast infection. We have tried vet treatments, only to have them re-occur. I am now trying Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Thanks for sharing and hope we all find help for our precious pets.

My Samoyed, Zeke, wears Solvit support harness. It helps us lift him up and down stairs and does not seem to hurt him. We had to go with a size smaller than recommended for his weight.

I have been looking for a cure for his DM which he has had symptoms of for at least 6 months now. He has had ACV and a variety of other supplements for years . Since the DM, he has laser therapy weekly but I am not so sure it is helping any. He was 14 last June so I guess I should be thank-full he has been with us this long.

I was wondering if there was any updates on this tea? I am in Australia. I just found out my 9yr old cat Maloo has lymphoma. At first it was diagnosed as URI and then he started to sneeze blood. After antibiotics he cleared for 2 weeks then it came back. He had a biopsy and the devastating news came yesterday. I did not hear exactly what type however I am guessing nasal lymphoma. He has FIV and was offered chemo but do NOT want to do that to him.

I am not ready to let him go. I have lost two cats one aged 6 to diabetes and one (my soul kitty) aged 8 to intestinal adenocarcinoma. I am angry and upset. I really would love for this tea to work. However have no information on it or dosage. I have been looking all day on net. My head is spinning.

  Re: Zymox for Ear Issues in Dogs

Zymox is a lifesaver. My three-year-old mini schnauzer developed allergies which caused her all sorts of miseries thanks to the yeast infection. Constantly scratching and clawing at her ears and paws. I did the usual thing - went to the vet, antibiotics, steroids, "special" food, etcetera, which of course made things worse. Then I switched her to the BARF diet which, while not totally curing her, certainly made her a lot more comfortable. But her ears and paws still got red and inflamed from time to time. FINALLY read about Zymox and, although I wasn't holding out much hope, decided to try it. I bought the Otic for her ears. One week later, the heat, redness and itching were totally gone - it's been over a month now and her ears are still a lovely cold pink. She still has occasional redness in her paws, so today I bought the topical Zymox spray and am very hopeful that we can be done with this nasty itching once and for all.

FYI If your dog is on Keppra then I'm assuming it has a seizure disorder. If that's the case I have been told dogs with seizures should not get the Bordetella Vaccine, that it can cause seizures.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Yogurt Helping Bladder Infection in Dog

Hi, my Sasha is a 8yr. old 80 pound American Pitbull who has been dry peeing for a few days. I thought about ACV as I use it daily for many things for my family. However, I knew she would not drink her water if she smelled Apple Cider Vinegar in her bowl. I'm so happy I found this site. I mixed 2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar with 2 teaspoons of plain greek yogurt. After tasting this well mixed creamy remedy I added 2 teaspoons of applesauce to sweeten the bitter taste before giving it to Sasha and she loved her new treat. I will repeat in the morning. Sasha is sleeping like a baby. I will update after a few days of am and pm treatments.

Thanks for saving me a small fortune!

The pyrethrins is the main ingredient in many of your household flea killers. And most warning labels tell you NOT to expose pets to this chemical no matter where it originated. Who knows what may happen along the line later.
