5 out of 5 stars

I've cured parvo in puppies about 8 times so far with grapefruit seed extract.

I dilute 5 drops in 1 ounce of water and give them a couple dropper fulls of the mixture every hour around the clock until they start to feel better, I then reduce to two hours and so on. I continue the treatment for a couple days.

Once there was two pups from a litter who were sick, my puppy and one another person was purchasing...I tried pursuing him to have me try cure him but he decided to bring it to the vet. 600$ later and a dead puppy, mine was thriving and back on its feet. It worked every time for me!

  Apple Cider Vinegar for Bladder Infection in Dog

Hi I have just joined this group my 7 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback has had the same issues for last 10 weeks & booked in for an ultrasound on 28 October. Long weekend here in New Zealand 🇳🇿 so I was desperate yesterday as he had blood in urine & white cells but the vet has not prescribed any medication for long weekend & his urine is very bad smell. I did purchase some Blackmores Cramberry 15000 & emptied a small portion on his food last night today his urine is not quite as smelly but I wonder if I could use apple cider vinegar also? Are you meaning 2 Teaspoons or Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with yoghurt?

Kind Regards Margaret

Tied Thread and Clear Nail Polish for Skin Tag on Dog

My 13 year old dog had a large skin tag the size of a quarter growing on her elbow. Though ugly, I didn't want to put her under the stress of anesthesia just to cut off a benign skin growth. I researched and found two methods on youtube which I used simultaneously.

First, I tied a cotton thread, wound twice as tightly as possible and then knotted off around the very base of the skin tag. Then I coated the skin tag with clear nail polish. If you go to youtube, you'll find a kindly man who has treated many dogs with these two methods (separate videos). Urls are below.

At the 3 day mark, I tied another piece of thread to ensure as the skin tag had shriveled considerably in size and you need it tight to cut off the blood supply to the skin tag. I also coated it again with clear nail polish.

It took a week before the large skin tag had completely shriveled up and turned black. I then sterilized some good scissors under a flame and then snipped the dried tag off at the base being careful not to snip her skin. She had no pain when I snipped it off and there was no blood. Also, it doesn't appear that tying a string around the skin tag caused any pain or discomfort at all. She didn't lick the skin tag once the whole week.

It can also work on other growths besides skin tags like cysts and tumors.

The videos I watched first before attempting this:

 Re: Goat Infected With CL (Caseous Lymphadenitis). What Remedies Can Help?

Dear Nancy,

I am sorry about the diagnosis of CL disease in your goat. I am assuming you have read up on it and are using appropriate protocols to prevent the spread of the disease to other goats, if you have others, and also to the humans that care for your goat, as humans can contract this disease.

While antibiotic therapy has not proven very helpful for CL disease, I don't find information about the use of herbs to treat CL disease, but I would probably be trying turmeric as it is so effective as a natural antibiotic, when traditional antibiotics fail. And it is useful for other bacteria that causes abscesses.

I have used turmeric to successfully treat goats with staph infections.

I give 1 teaspoon to a full size goat, mixed in the feed, twice daily.

Colloidal silver is also excellent for infections when antibiotics don't work well. I make my own for myself and my animals and add lots to water for sick animals. I was giving a sick dog a half a cup of colloidal silver a day at least (and it saved her from Erlichia, a tick borne disease.)

Please let us know how it goes.

Neem oil (and most all natural oils) is toxic to cats - they do not have the liver enzyme or metabolic enzymes as we do. As well cats have systems like camels - so any dry food harms them greatly (they derived from the desert and their intestines are designed to draw water out of the food to store it. (very simply put).

I once did research on what is in many common pet foods and it will make you well disgusted... even rubber hardeners and other nasty garbage. I use Wysong products (great and low temperature as high temperature destroys enzymes and other nutritional qualities). I add this to a raw diet along with certain home grown herbs and plants chopped and slightly wilted (warm water poured over the food) I add natural sea Vegetables as well (make sure a dog or cat search on any plants that are toxic to them. Or other products).

A great book is "The Natural Remedy Book for Dogs and Cats by Diane Stein and one can search for such other great books. I have had mine for decades and resort to it frequently. Dr. Mercola (Human MD) has great books and products for cats (dogs).

My background was in research (legal and medical) and many other areas. I went holistic as a young child after reading my mothers medical books - although her Merck manual from 1953 is full of natural remedies that work. Rx for people and pet's took over.

Using Flor-Essence for Cat With Mouth Cancer in Lower Jaw

Fri, 12 Oct 18 09:52:21 -0700
Posted by Chantal (Hasselt, Belgium) on 10/12/2018

Flor-Essence for Cat With Mouth Cancer in Lower Jaw:

Hello, I read many testimonials about the effects of the tea for animals with cancer. As I live in Belgium I could only find the 8 formula, The Flor Essence. I read that many people give the 4 formula. Why is this?

Some people mentioned that the red clover in the eight formula could kill a cat. I did some research and I found this : https://www.vetinfo.com/medicinal-cat-herbs.html : The red clover may be used as an alternative treatment for cancer; this may slow down the tumor from extending.

At the moment I give between 3-4 tsp (20 ml) per day divided in 3 portions. For cats with agressive cancer they recommended even 2x2tbsp per day.

I read that for the Flor-Essence formula you have to mix 5ml (1tsp) with 5ml water of broth. Is this correct?

There ware some testimonials where catowners mentioned that the tumor was growing accompanied with some bloodloss.They asked for help but I only found one answer : have Faith in the tea and give it the time to do it's work. There was also told that it happens that the tumor can grow and then flatten. This is mentioned in the instruction paper which is delivred with the bottle. As I am from Belgium I purchased it in the Netherlands. Without Paper. Only recommendations for administrating.
Is it possible to receive such instructionpaper?

I began to administrate the Flor-Essence about 10 days ago.My cat is almost 17 years old. He has a big appetite and makes some little walks in the garden

What do you recommend?
I know that there is a very big chance that the cancer can't be cured. But I give the tea a chance.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Chantal

Tisha,

Calcium is very problematic in human adults. It is the first thing I learned about when we began to heal our family and pets.

Here is my 2 cents worth.

Guinea Pigs eat nearly identical diets to horses. The difference is horses have a more complicated digestive system. There are some things I have observed that may help.

Guinea pigs get calcifications in their scrotums, mammary glands, necks. In humans it is cysts and calcified joint problems, circulation problems as unabsorbed calcium has no where to go. It can gather up to be stones in kidney and bladder. Dogs absorb calcium pretty well. But everyone is subject to calcifications.

Going through how we handled this one huge problem amongst 20 guinea pigs, 6 people and 4 dogs.

First was water, if the horse is getting fluoridated water you might look into defluoridated water, or adding a pinch of borax occasionally. It keeps the body defluoridated. Just a little bit.

Sodium thiosulfate, I can take one crystal myself harmlessly, it is high in sulfur. Our method for all of us, 1 gallon of dechlorinated water, or 1 crystal of sodium thiosulfate. 1/4 tsp of borax. That was the added as a splash in all the pets water and used as a fraction in each human, 4 days out of seven.

Topically DMSO is a carrier, rich in sulfur. If you use MSM for your horse. That is DMSO with hydrogen peroxide added.

Topically I have used DMSO liberally on all of us. You can make sure your hands are clean. But gloves might take toxins in the skin. I usually use hydrogen peroxide to wipe the area to be treated. Then add the DMSO.

DMSO carries remedies directly to the problem. If I were going to treat my pets. I would take a thick folded cotton, apply castor oil, DMSO, magnesium oil ( to displace calcium effectively) wipe down the area with peroxide and stick that pack on there for 20 minutes. Maybe a Velcro strap.

There was a woman taking care of wild horses somewhere on e.c. she would throw DMSO on injuries as they would not allow her near.

I use DMSO as part of my inhaled remedies. It cleared a clot in my husbands leg and 1000 other things.

Spray bottles are handy for cleaning with peroxide. At least where it won't discolor fabrics and such.

The guinea pigs bumble foot, tumors, general health were improved. I just had to keep them away from dirt after applications. They potty a lot.

The cause of the calcium problems I think. Especially in the strict vegetarian diet. With nearly all hay. The quality of the water given them. The fruit. The less than stellar ingredients in some commercial pet foods. Glyphosate exposure.

The last two were fed no fruit, clean water, Oxbow hay and feed. Although I am suspicious of the glyphosates in their products. They did not have any issues. No tumors, cysts, bumble foot, cloudy eyes or pneumonia.

Here is Teds DMSO chapter.

To Cindy from Illinois,

Yes, I was wondering also! I thought my male shorthair had mites, he was digging at his ears and shaking his head a lot, he was miserable!

Decided a trip to the vet was necessary and found out he didn't have mites, he had a nasty yeast infection in his ears! Much better now, with ear wash prescrip, and an antifungal ear med! Poor guy!

Hi Shean,

It seems to me that you have to increase the dosage of the three components that you are giving to your dog. Considering that she has also a cold, then there are two health issues that your dog is dealing with: pyometra and colds. It would take a higher dose that what you are giving to help your dog get well. If she has no appetite, you have to give her the components orally with the use of a syringe.

It may help to have your dog spayed after she gets well with this current bout of pyometra. If you do not want to have her spayed, then you have to anticipate that every time she has her heat pyometra will probably follow. You have to give her an increased dose of the mixture as described in this website immediately after heat and probably for a month just to make sure that the pyometra will not recur.

I don't know the dosage of Borax for pets. I understand that for women, it's 1/8 teaspoon per 1 litre of water; for men it's 1/4 teaspoon per liter of water. I would think a whole teaspoon would be far too much for a dog. You should do more research to find out the dosage. Hopefully Theresa can weigh in :-)

Giving Borax to Pets

Posted by Traci (Johannesburg) on 10/03/2018

Hello! Thank you for this informative website. I am amazed to learn the benefits of borax for arthritis and general health, and would like to start giving it to my aging dog for his aches & pains, and the other dogs too (and the humans! )

It will be difficult to add it to their water as they have several water sources. Can I make the solution (1 tsp borax + 1 liter water) and simply put a teaspoon of the solution into their food daily?

Thank you very much!

Mammary Carcinoma in Boston Terrier

Tue, 02 Oct 18 11:53:29 -0700
Posted by Desperate Fur Mom (Hazlehurst, Ga) on 10/02/2018

My 10 year old female Boston terrier was diagnosed with mammary carcinoma today. I was told it is very aggressive. I'm trying to research a natural treatment. I've found so many conflicting treatments. Is it safe to give her sodium bicarbonate? She's eaten rachel ray natural dog food by nutrish for several years, with the occasional treat from the table will it hurt her to change her diet overnight without gradually switching her over to an organic diet of fresh meat and vegetables? Please help. I'm desperate!
