[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] Hi Theresa, or anyone on EC that can give feed back.
Late last year a woman came to my door with a large black rescue dog that is part retriever, newfie. His back was one raw piece blood and serum from years of neglect by people who were addicted to alcohol as well he was kicked by a man and abused constantly. By the way, this is a wonderful, intelligent dog that puts us to shame because he has not a mean bone in him . For four years he wore an e-collar, but no serious treatment for his condition.
The dog was screaming with pain and rubbing his back on the floor in utter agony. I immediately went to my kitchen cabinet and poured high quality turmeric on his huge wound till totally covered. The room was full of blood and turmeric which cleaned up well, so no problem. After about three minutes, while we were talking, I noticed the dog lying quietly in a corner, relaxing. Within three days this large wound area was healed! The hair began growing back with small areas that need work to help fill in. Wonderful turmeric!
The reason I am seeking input is that months later after several baths which he endures with patience most of the scabs have fallen off except those at the root of his tail and along the tail. New bumps appear with a type of goose skin and severe itching. He is on Essiac to clean him out which can take months. I am waiting to get out of this small town to purchase a good e-collar, much as I hate it but plan on keeping it on only after a TED bath for mites and so on.
Meanwhile I use Dr. Bronner's lavender kastile soap for another bath, following up with much diluted ACV which both my dogs hate for the smell even though they like it in the food. What I am concerned about is those hard itchy bumps and the lower back and tail not clearing up. Is it detox or what? I am sure he has mites as he scratches his face quite often. They get home made food with lots of raw veggies, turmeric, MSM a little Celtic salt, kelp and VCO. Some raw chicken items, too. Top quality grain free kibbles in a smaller amount than the rest.
Can anyone make useful suggestions without bringing in vets. Thanks, Om
