  Ginger and Turmeric for Lepto

Thanks for listening to my story. I am missing my fur baby so much it hurts so bad.I am using frankincense, palo Santo and turmerical essential oil on the rest of my babies and myself to protect us. I am waiting on turmeric and ginger powder to arrive so we can add it on our table food.

We are using blended mushroom powder on their table food to build up their immune system. I will not vaccinate them because it will not prevent leptospirosis and if a vet say it will they are after your money. lf you have small dogs, the vaccines can injure them very badly and l have come across stories about the lepto vaccine injuring pets.

I will keep using what l listed for protection and as an alternative antibiotic.

l lost my fur baby to Leptospirosis.There are many strains of Leptospira bacteria that can cause disease. lt can be spread from animals to people. Infection in people can cause flu-like symptoms and can cause liver or kidney disease.

Antibiotics can reverse the illness if caught in time.

I put turmeric essential oil and frankincense oil on my fur babies every day now two or 3 times a day even though they don't go out and as a precaution.

Active manuka honey 12+ or higher is an alternative antibiotic and so is grapefruit seed extract, ginger, turmeric etc...

Acer (7 yr lab) sweetest kindest loving companion, started needing help in car, so I took him to are vet, did xrays stated saw nothing on hips or legs, asked if I could view them, she said nope, I shared with her I help Casper (10 yr cocker) in car, get this, she said, he sees ya helpin Casper, so he wants same treatment. No he is independent, I knew she was wrong. 3 weeks no better, he was in pain cryin. I took him back I wanted another xray, no just give him some muscle relaxers.

You guys he was cryin through nite, called back she couldnt see him for 2 weeks. I called another vet that day took him in, they showed me his x-ray, advised me he was in so much pain, his back end and leg was full cancer, the guilty I had for letting him suffer so much pain for so long, trusting are vet. Never ever do that again, I heal them. If I only would have taken him somewhere else.

We have our dogs on limited ingredient diet, no grains. It's not at a grocery store, you have to go to the pet store to get it. Starts with a C. The dry food we use is pricier than some, but my little Maltese/Shihtzu mix's fur is shiny and she has energy like a puppy. I also add a meat topping with no sodium because she is so picky. She's 10 1/2. She still has allergy flare ups, but seasonal, not food related.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Kitten's Conjunctivitis

I just had to report my results using Apple Cider Vinegar for my new kitten's conjunctivitis. I did the half water-half vinegar solution (50/50) and tho it made no sense to me I did soak a cotton ball and applied it to Onyxs' shoulder blades (this being after my third application @ 2x/day) and I also mixed up a solution of 1cp water/1tsp of the vinegar and wiped his eyes out three times a day with it.

I am floored by the results so far!! It's only now the second day and it was posted by others that results would be noticed on the second day and I can 100% say with no doubts that the treatment is actually working!!

When I got him his eyes had a lot of pus in both eyes. The eyelids were both crusty and partially sealed by the discharge so I think it's fair to say his infection was moderate heading towards severe. This morning his eyes were both open all the way, a very tiny amount of pus, mostly his eyes were watery. He was so happy to actually see his toy that he played and played for a good hour before passing back out again.

I now have a very hyper kitty. He does have worms also but once I finish taking care of that issue I can't imagine how much energy he will have when his poor tummy feels better especially if he's displayed this much energy just fixing his eyes. It was literally the best $4 I ever spent on any kind of product. And to think putting vinegar on the shoulder blades in the back AWAY from their eyes actually works!! AND it sure beats going to the vet paying for just being there and then the cost of some kind of medicine and my baby is very young, too young to have been taken from his mother however the mothers owner is far from a responsible pet owner and was literally throwing the entire litter outside in the woods next to her house. If I could have taken them all I would have and I've thought about them ever since. I know I'm going to try everything I can to help the one I did save. I don't know about the worms, if the vinegar would kill those but that's my next mission. If not it's off to the vet with him.

Thanks for the advice, this site is fantastic!! I spend many hours here going thru all the remedies and ailments. Keep up the great work!!

My Solution for Urinary Incontinence in Dogs

My 8 pound female yorkie (puppy mill rescue) started suffering from urinary incontinence. Since the Covid spread I haven't been able to take her to a vet. But I searched online, specifically Dr Karen Becker' s website. She recommended Standard Process Symplex-F, a natural estrogen booster. I mix one small tablet with her food, once a day.

Within a week it started to work! I had purchased diapers for her to use and haven't had to use one of them. You can get it thru your vet, but since I couldn't see a vet I found online a company called Holistic Health International and they shipped and it isn't expensive. They also have a blend for male dogs too. Hope this helps.

Immune Boosting Remedies Needed for Rescue Cat with Mites

Immune Boosting Remedies for Cat with Scabies/Mites

I'm thinking this rescue cat of mine has scabies/mange, even tho the vet didn't seem to think so. She scratches spots raw and has little scabbies. I started doing the ACV last night and today will start the borax treatment. But how do I boost her immune system? How do I reduce her anxiety? I got Feliway that is supposed to calm them, but it's pricy for me. And now I'll have to treat the other cat, too. I use Frontline on the original cat and gave a dose of Bravecto to the rescue cat (we have huge flea and tick issue in our area), do you know if these will kill the mange/scabie mites?

  Rescue Cat with Scratching and Dandruff Issues - Update

Well, Miss Kitty, now known as Heidi, is doing very well. The only issue she has still other than her weight is that she's pulling out her hair. No more scratching, but she'll pluck hair. I put coconut oil on the spots, which soothes them, but I think this is just an anxiety thing. I ordered her the Feliway(?) pheromone that is supposed to calm cats down, it'll be here Wed. Today I left the door open and she went outside for a bit, stayed on the porch but seemed to enjoy all the smells. I'm gone all day and don't know how to keep her active while I"m away. She has the other cat for company, but I don't know that they do much. I plan to put only a little kibble in the bowl tomorrow. If they finish it all then they wait until I get home for more. I've been putting 1/2 cup am and pm, but I'll reduce it just a little.

Brewer's Yeast for Fleas

Be careful with Brewers Yeast for Fleas. I started giving it to my two dogs a few years ago and after a couple of weeks, both dogs were scratching like mad. I thought they had fleas but couldn't see any. I Googled Brewers Yeast and found that many dogs have a bad reaction to it.

I'm sorry that I forgot to mention that Gold Bond Medicated powder or either the one in the blue box at the Dollar General Stores. It is found with the foot powders.
