What was the raw food called? Raw can initiate GI issues if you start too soon. Introduce gradually and he'll be ok, like over a week, 1/2 tsp at a time. My ex is a great holistic vet who does nationwide phone consults, based in Fla, and he and I have 30 years of experience with raw food. The best thing for animals!!

Pseudomonas in Cat's Sinuses - Natural Remedies Needed

Posted by Miss Kitty's Mom (Williamsburg Virginia) on 01/13/2022

Pseudomonas in my cat's sinus - looking for a natural cure - anitibiotics are not working

I have a sweet small cat that had an ear polyp removed surgically. After that was done, she developed a bloody nose and congestion with mucous/blood. All the vets at the hospital said she must have a tumor or something because nothing was helping - including all sorts of antibiotics.

So after almost 8 months of trying many natural treatments, including colloidal silver, ACV, homeopathic remedies, I had endoscopic surgery to remove what the specialist thought, as I thought was another polyp.

After she went through the endoscope - they flushed her sinuses and found no polyp, no tumor but an area was inflamed. After getting back the lab results from a biopsy, we found she has pseudomonas. The specialist has her on a particular antibiotic called marbofloxacin. She has been on this treatment for nearly 3 weeks now and is no better!

I've studied this nasty pseudomonas during this time, and it is resistant to antibiotics, so it stirs up the bacteria and can make it worse! So, now I am trying to discover if anyone in the naturopathic world has an answer for this resistant bacteria.

I found one doctor in New Zealand who says that Grapefruit Seed extract and a full spectrum product he uses to kill Candidas will bring the pseudomonas under control. She has a bloody nose all the time, sometimes he seems to be getting better and then it flairs its ugly head.

She is on a home prepared diet that is from another holistic Doctor named Dr Pitcairn, who has many home prepared meals recipes for both dogs and cats with afflictions and non afflictions. She has been on the allergy diet for a long time and she looks beautiful - all the vets say the same. She has no other issue but the pseudomonas infection (which probably came from infected instruments at the vet hospital).

Are there any other cures anyone has found for their dogs or cats with this horrible stubborn affliction? I am determined to find a cure for this. Also the Dr from New Zealand, Dr Eric Bakker claims his remedy works. Also getting the gut in order with probiotics -

I share these things, but have yet to use them to see if there is improvements or cures. Anyone else found these remedies working?

Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil for cancer/tumors. A lady in England cured her dog cancer.

If it were my dog, I would also add turmeric powder to the dog's food. About 1/4 teaspoon every meal.

Why it works.

Sea buckthorn oil is a useful and highly prized oil typically used in skin care. It can be applied directly to the skin or included within skin care preparations. This oil contains essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols and phytosterols. It is a concentrated oil, and we suggest to use sparingly.

Vitamins, Nutrients & Phytonutrients
Used in Chinese medicine over 1000 years ago, Sea Buckthorn oil is rich in vitamins and minerals. The fruit contains an exceptional concentration of natural anti-aging Vitamin C, which is 12 times higher than that of an orange! Sea Buckthorn fruit is becoming as popular as pomegranate and acai berry because of its very impressive nutritional profile. It contains over 190 nutrients and phytonutrients, and high amounts of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein, making it a powerful Superfood.

Essential Fatty Acids
The unique high fatty acid content of Sea Buckthorn oil and the wealth of nutrients it contains make it one of the most health-promoting herbal oils today. When applied on the skin, Sea Buckthorn oil does not leave an oily residue as virtually all ingredients are properly absorbed and quickly assimilated into the skin.

Four Powerful Antioxidants

  • Contains more vitamin E (d-alpha-Tocopherol) than any other plant-based oil known at this time

  • Beta-carotene: .5,000 IU/100g

  • Essential fatty acids: Omega-3 (30%), Omega-6 (40%), and Omega-9 (19%)

  • Contains 11 out of 14 trace minerals and flavonoids

Vitamins and Minerals

  • Vitamin A – helps maintain healthy teeth and bones (found in the berries)

  • Vitamin B12 – helps with energy production and red blood cell formation (berries)

  • Vitamin C – promotes wound healing, healthy teeth and gums (berries)

  • Vitamin E– helps form red blood cells (berries)

  • Vitamin K – crucial for blood clotting to stop bleeding (berries)

  • Lycopene – an antioxidant that protects DNA and proteins

  • Potassium – needed for fluid balance and muscle function

  • Calcium – promotes healthy bones, teeth, and keeps blood pressure constant

  • Magnesium – needed for making proteins and immune system health

  • Iron – needed to carry oxygen around the body

  • Phosphorus – maintains body pH


  • Hippophaeosides (1-3) – (found in the leaves)

  • Hippophins (found in the seeds)

  • Catechin (leaves)

  • Epicatechin (leaves)

  • Gallocatechin (leaves)

  • Epigallocatechin (leaves)


In mice, sea buckthorn berry extract blocked the growth of tumors in the stomachs and skin of mice. It promoted the activity of anticancer proteins that limit abnormal cell growth and promote cell death [51].

Sea buckthorn juice slowed tumor growth in mice organs and extended their lifespans from an average of 195 days to 270 days [52].

Sea buckthorn juice reduced the number of genetic abnormalities caused by the chemotherapeutic drug cisplatin in both mice sperm and bone marrow cells [53].

The oral CS will kill pathogens in the blood and can work against the cancer, so it may not be a good idea to cut it out. CS has a very good safety profile even at high dosage levels significantly higher than you are giving your dog, which is actually a very small amount if you are starting with 20 ppm CS.

Hi Dustie,

Please let us know how your dog is doing today. I hope better.

My dog did completely lose his appetite on the benadryl/tagamet protocol for a few days but recovered it once I stopped. DMSO seems to give him a very good appetite.

If it's properly made colloidal silver (i.e., pale yellow for 20 ppm colloidal silver and not clear colored ionic silver), not sure you need to cut down on it in the drinking bowl. I give my dog 1 -2 tablespoons of 20 ppm CS mixed in each meal (2x day) and it's been very helpful. I have been doing that for years now and no issues. Probably has prolonged his life. He's a rescue so I don't know his exact age, but around 16 according to the vet. Golden retriever mix, 55 pounds.

Hello, my cat has similar discharges but his nose also his breathing is louder because of the blockage. Suspect a polyp. How is cats claw tincture tinctures have alcohol? Do you do something to take out the alcohol? 4th round of vet prescribed antibiotics, the problem goes away and comes back worse after antibiotics wear off.

He eats well, no balance issues yet but has lost some weight..

There are a few maple syrups made with xylitol, be sure yours is not one of those, as xylitol can kill dogs and at a minimum make them very sick.

In any case, it does not sound like a protocol you should follow.

You can use colloidal silver in the drinking water and apply topically with DMSO as Deirdre has described. Dogs can tolerate DMSO orally in very small amounts, but there are no studies or guidelines for that use.

Since my boxer is 85lbs I gave her a 1/2 tsp of the mixture, and for 2 days I have been using the DMSO & CS 50/50, prior to receiving the DMSO I had started her on the Chaga mushroom and turmeric, with Gold Wellbeing for immune support for dogs with cancer, and 3oz of CS in her water dish as she has a 5qt dish., plus cbd oil.. maybe it's too much, or maybe it's too late, if she makes it through the night I will stick with just the CS & DMSO topical treatment and cut down on the CS oz in her water dish.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Dustie, no this never happened on any of the protocols I tried. I never tried baking soda and maple syrup on my dogs though. They both got diarrhea once or twice, but never threw up or had dry heaves, even on the harsh tagamet/benadryl protocol.

How much did you give of each?

I would absolutely not give him anymore until he recovers and then a lot less or try another protocol. Might be too harsh. Someone else might have input about what's going on with your dog.

For DMSO, I've had great results using either apple cider vinegar or 20 ppm colloidal silver.

So sorry.

I just gave my dog first dosage last night and a few hours later she started getting sick, and today a to throw up, especially after drinking allot of water, I can't get her to eat anything today as well... Did your dog have any reaction to their first dose?

Hi Deirdre,

I finally received the DMSO and pure baking soda, last night I gave my dog the baking soda & maple syrup mixture, after a couple hours she started throwing up, and is not wanting to eat this morning and is still throwing more like dry heaves, did you experience this with your dog at first?

I'm glad I'm not the only one with the experience of infection from ear mites returning once Clavomox was finished, and worse, both my kittens kept coming down with colds but I was able to treat that promptly with Elderberry syrup mixed in their food before the cold developed further. I've just tried apple cider vinegar with water today and it seems to help, we'll see how it goes! I think I'm done with the expensive vets and turning to natural remedies!

Hi Dustie, I really don't know but since time is of the essence, you need to immediately start testing various protocols to see which one works. Art might have a better idea.

You could check out the Tagamet/Benadryl protocol on Facebook and see if it helped any dogs with T Cell Lymphoma. It was too rough on my dog so I stopped. Please let us know how it goes.
