I have an 18 year old cat that developed asthma like symptoms 2 years ago. He was on oxygen and steroids for a while. Then on homeopathic remedies. He was getting worse and was dying. I did some research and found a lifesaving remedy for him. Omega Alpha, Lung Tone. I give it to him by mouth daily and he's back to his old self again. Truly amazing. It saved his life!

My 8 month old GSD received the Lyme vaccination and within hours began limping and became lethargic. He became worse and returned to the vet the next day. He had a 106 temp and could not bear weight on his front leg. Was given an anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. It's been 2 days and he is slowly responding. Needless to say, he won't be getting the 2nd dose

My 1 year old cat just got his very first anti rabies shot 3 days ago. Since then she has been meowing loud and lying down all day more than usual. Im not sure if its the side effects or she's sick.

ABOVE ALL...find yourself a good holistic vet. You don't want to manage kitty's symptoms with toxic drugs in the cut, poison, burn method. You want to get to the root of the problem and help the kitty regain good health.

Dear Kasey

Yes you can give your dog human grade vitamin C. Sodium ascorbate is easiest on the gut.

I would try to dose as often as 5 times the first day and then 3 times a day after that.

For little Mimi I would try:

  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon manuka honey
  • 1/16 - 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1,000 mg vitamin C

I think the probiotics are a good idea, too!

Keep us posted!

  Re: Neem Oil Toxic to Cats?

Hey Meg,

The main concern about neem products are the other things that may be added to them, like tea tree oil. Pure neem should not be an issue. If you are concerned give activated charcoal - mix a spoon into a can of tuna and see if your cat will take it. On a side note, you might consider the lamp flea trap if you are getting bitten by these pests.

Hey Catherine,

Feel the black part of the tail - does it feel warm or cold? Warm = blood circulating, cold = that part of the tail is dead and may need to be amputated to prevent gangrene. A recheck at the vet may be in order. Other things that may help; offer super nutritious foods - there is a product in a tube called Nutrical that may help. A mixture of honey, ACV and molasses may be helpful. Rescue remedy given to all of you; lavender essential oil as a fragrance/aromatherapy may help calm everyone. Holding your rattikins on your chest with your hand over to keep her warm, and simply meditating peaceful, loving and healing thoughts may help - or try focusing your energy and visualizing healing can also help.

  Re: Seabuckthorn Oil for Tumors

I don't know about rubbing it on the tumor. The postings did not say that. You may want to re-read the posts. You should give it by mouth. My dog licked it from the bowl but you can add it to yogurt or something else. My dog was about 20 pounds and I gave her a whole dropper full daily for three to four weeks when I noticed that the tumor had pretty much disappeared. Make sure to get the 'berry' oil not the 'seed' oil. While the seed oil might work, I had results from the berry oil. Good luck.

Wonderful news! Thanks for sharing.

If it happens again, you can probably dilute the 5ml in water before dosing to make it easier for your dog to take. Maybe 5ml of Apple Cider Vinegar and 30 ml of water...

Big story, .... My female rat had a tumor removed five days ago. yesterday I noticed some yellow crust wound on her shaved skin but not on the surgery mark that had healed very well. Than this morning, we noticed that part of her tail started to look dead and black,,,, even look crooked. broken? bad circulation from surgery? reaction from vet's medication?

It's our favorite rat but we feel she is going trough a lot. she lost a lot of weight, so tiny and I was wondering how I could help her. I have images of the tail if it can help.

I'm beside myself because my Speed Racer has a UTI, 103.5 temp and won't eat. I did just see him drink water with his paw. Went to the vet last night, $400 later. He has an oral antibiotic and a product called Rebound (also orally); however he keeps vomiting. Worried that his meds won't help I ran to GNC and bought the ACV wth the Mother. Gave him the emergency dose of 5ml. He spit a little up because it does taste nasty (I tried it). I also added a little honey to it. Anyway, he seems okay now, but only time will tell. I will keep you all posted and a big THANK YOU for this site and recommendations!

Same thing with my beautiful Shih Tzu, Krishna. Now he is totally deaf. Does not respond to us shaking his bag of treats or getting his food ready! I'm so sad. Vet said maybe he was already going deaf. No he wasn't! He was much more lively and responsive prior to this treatment of Oti-e pack.

My daughters dog came down with Cushing's at age 5. She was a vibrant Australian Retriever mix. My daughter got her as a rescue. She also had distemper when little & my daughter with the help of our very practical, eccentric, vet, nursed her to health. One day my daughter came home from work & found her dog hovering in a corner. EVERYTHING CHANGED in this dog. Scared, jumpy, etc. My daughter called & said "I think Nico is blind." We took her to our vet-he called her name, she looked up, & the vet with tears in his eyes, said she was 100% blind. We took her to a fancy vet clinic out of town & the vet wanted $1,500 for a brain scan just to verify Nico was blind. Forget that! Went to our vet, & because of distemper, she could not smell. Our vet said most dogs learn to get around by smell if they are blind. It was heartbreaking to see her run into walls, furniture, etc. Our wonderful, eccentric but practical vet, told us to love her, let her eat what she liked, & she would let us know when it was time for her to go to doggie heaven. It was hard, but harder watching her hiding in corners and running into objects. We didn't want to shove pills down her throat, as most of the time Cushing's doesn't get better. We just loved her as much as we could, and then said good-bye Nico.

I have a boxer at 70lbs and is about 12 or 13 as she is a rescue. Sereval months ago she started to have hip problems. I have tried the top of the line products with little results. Found you on Earth Clinic and need to know how many times a day do you feed this to your dog. I am giving her a special tumeric cap with coconut oil now and it seems to be helping some. I also found a recipe for bone broth which I may add to her food. She tries so hard to please and it is heart breaking, Please advise.
