Diseases, allergens, and some medications seem to trigger autoimmune conditions in some of our pets, creating uncomfortable conditions in our dogs, cats, and other lovable critters that can be very difficult to treat naturally.
Such pet autoimmune diseases include arthritis, lupus, red blood cell disorders, and a variety of skin conditions.
One of the first things to try for many chronic pet illnesses is to experiment with a change in diet, whether that means a different brand of commercial dog food, a BARF diet, an holistic diet, or some other change that may eliminate allergens or otherwise might boost the healthy immune system.
Natural Cures: Most immune boosting natural remedies can be used alike in pets as in humans. Garlic and brewer's yeast, however, while are popular as food additives for many pet owners are simultaneously anathema to other dog and cat lovers, who point to studies that show liver toxicity from these remedies over the long term. Caution is recommended.
[YEA] Australian Bush Flower Essences were used to cure auto immune problems in two dogs, one a bleeding disorder, of low platelets diagnosed by veterinarian as auto immune caused. Treated with ABFE (Use Blood disorders page 310 of Australian Bush Flower Healing by Ian white with the addition of waratah, Reiki and one homeopathic remedy Lachisis stopped bleeding overnight. Added Boab to the ABFE after the main crisis was over. The other was suffering from thyroidosis, auto immune type, loss of weight, not playful and heat cycle out of whack and enlarged thyroid. Used only ABFE this time for the auto immune problem and used 7 drops in the dogs water daily, and in two weeks she was more playful, slowly gained weight and heat cycle was normal after two months back in sync with the other bitch. I have found ABFE to be better than homeopathy, works faster and better IMO too.
