I started taking increased doses of Vitamin C a number of years ago at my doctor's recommendation for a tendency to bruise easily. One of the other unexpected benefits is that my sinuses cleared up. I used to wake up sneezing and would continue throughout the morning, sometimes through the entire day, year round. After experimenting with different dosages, I am now on a maintenance level of 2000 mg of Vitamin C daily and this keeps my allergies under control usually 50-51 weeks out of the year. Occasionally, I may have a flare-up and need something else. When that happens, I stir 1 teaspoon of ground Turmeric into an 8 oz. glass of water and drink it. Within 15 minutes, I am breathing freely once again and no more sneezing!
My cat was lethargic, drinking extra water, and his coat lacked shine. I had great luck using powdered ascorbic acid (vitamin C) mixed with water for this condition. I put a half teaspoon into a small cup, added water, then used a plastic syringe (available at drugstores) to give to my cat orally.
The next morning after giving vitamin C, he was plumper, healthier, and happy. I will continue to give him 250 mg a day for now to take care of any problems he mght be experiencing with his kidneys. Apparently the max dose is 250 a day for cats.
I was getting worried about my kitty and am so happy to see him improving so rapidly! High dose vitamin C therapy prevents all kinds of human diseases as well!
I started giving my 7 1/2 year old Weimaraner Ester-C and it is working amazingly well. The before Ester-C symptoms were holding up her rear leg and refusing to put pressure on it, and sleeping all the time (perhaps depressed). She is normally a very, very active dog. Three days after treatment she is running around, energetic and putting more weight on it. Two weeks after the treatment she is as energetic as she was when she was a puppy, putting weight on her leg and 80% symptom free. This is truly amazing progress!! I started 1000mg of the Ester-C and up to 2000mg after the fourth day. THANK GOODNESS for natural cures and the internet!!
I've not read many posts. I wonder if folk realise that dogs & cats don't make as much vitamin C as most other animals do?
I gave a home to a stray cat who possibly had a poor start in life. When he became very poorly, I gave him 1/4 tsp powdered sodium ascorbate dissolved in 2ml warm water, used an old syringe [no needle]to inject it into his mouth. I did this at least 2 hourly during waking hours. The effect was wonderful!
He has a tendency to get discharging eyes. I use 1tsp sodium ascorbate in 1/2 metric cup warm water & swab both eyes 3-4 times/day with great clear up. [I drink the left-over solution.]
A friend who breeds rottweilers has a prize dog that's asthmatic. The asthma cleared up with ascorbic acid several times/day. The dog came off all its meds.
When my male cocker spaniel was about 6 months old, symptoms of hip dysplasia showed up dramatically. In a very short time he was almost crippled. After praying (God is good!), I began giving him 2,000 mg. of buffered C daily. Within a few days, he was walking & running like a normal pup. When I discontinued the C, the symptoms reoccurred, so I kept him on it continually. He is 12 years old now, is quite healthy, and still walks/runs without a problem. He has an unusually healthy diet, including apple cider vinegar & other supplements, and he and his twin sister are incredibly young for their age!

I am desperately trying to find a good quality Vit C powder to give my animals. Value Plus in Aus used to supply it, but doesn't anymore. Can anyone help me please. Thanks, Carol
