Apple Cider Vinegar for Flea Allergies in Dog

Thanks for the advice using ACV for flea allergies.

My little Toby is so uncomfortable/itchy all along from the back of his neck to tail. I have mixed 1/2 cup of ACV and 1/2 cup warm water and poured it over the areas after giving him a bath. I've only just done it and was wondering how often this can be done. Should I repeat this again tomorrow and the next few days or only weekly?

Thanks again :)

Hello Marie,

You might consider switching to grain free diets for both your kitties and see if that makes a difference. While the first ingredient in the diets you feed is chicken - and ingredients are listed by weight, the rest of the ingredients are grains and fillers. Since chicken meat is roughly 80% water, when dried it becomes a fraction of the protien in the diet, so you are essentially feeding your cats grain as a diet, and grain based diets have been linked to many health issues in our pets.

Need Help For Chronic Nasal Congestion and Runny Eyes in Cats

Chronic nasal congestion and runny eye occasionally.

I have 2 cats that have chronic respiratory issues. They are rescue cats and about 8 years old each. I have had them for 2 years. I feed them primarily Science Diet (light and longevity) mixed with Hill's Ideal balance for one of them. In the evening I mix ProPlan Urinary tract salmon wet food with the dry food. They currently get 1 scoop of Viralys a day and I put about 6 drops of Newton's liquid for Cough Asthma for cats in their wet blend food each day. I am at wit's end trying to end this cycle of congestion in them.

Hi Springflames!

Try to put the turmeric powder in between slices of your dog's favorite meat. Hopefully she will gobble up the meat fast enough without noticing the powder. If she chews on her food then that may pose a problem because she will be able to taste the turmeric. Alternatively, you may mix the turmeric powder with your dog's favorite liquid drink and administer it to her using a syringe.

Regarding your other question, I am not competent to assess whether the medications you are giving are already too much. I am not a veterinarian. It is worth to note, however that your vet prescribed the medications based on what he has been taught in veterinary school.

All I can relate to you is my own personal experience regarding the use of vitamin c for my dogs and also what I have researched regarding the matter. I was able to cure the pyometra of 2 of my dogs using only vitamin c. I never used any antibiotic back then. Not even turmeric. Just my dog's favorite cooked meat. Also, I noticed that healing was faster when the vitamin c was mixed with milk as well.

Again, good luck to you and your dog. Sana gumaling ang aso mo.

Hello Everyone

Thanks a lot earth clinic for these remedies and each one of you for your reviews.

QUESTION

I have a 2 year old male cat who recently wasn't able to pee and we had get him unblocked and he was on catheter for 4 days...After that he was on medication so his bladder can get back its elasticity...few days later his urine was cultured and there was an infection...so he was on antibiotics...Once the course was over I found earth clinic and started giving him ACV but I was giving very small doses(3ml of Standard Dose 4 times a day). It still worked and he was peeing much better than he had in a month.

Right now he is on Pain Medication and muscle relaxant and I have started a ACV in higher amount since today morning(12 ml of Standard Dose every hour)...

Can someone please tell me if it okay to give ACV with medicine????

Dosage of Baking Soda in Water for Yeast Infections in Dogs

For treatment of yeast infections in dogs, how many times per day do you add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to 1 liter of water? Is it once per day or every time you refill their water bowl? If it's once per day, can you do 1/2 teaspoon for 2 bowls?

Hi Lani,

Thank you so much for reply to my post, it means a lot for me and my dog. My dog was just discharged yesterday 01/10/17 from the vet hospital. She is now eating well and already active, however she drinks and pees alot and I can still observe the white pus discharge.

Today is my day 1 of vitamin C treatment, I gave her a total of 3,393mg of sodium ascorbate plus a teaspoon of turmeric. I tried giving her turmeric paste but she strongly disliked it, I tried to add honey but still she's having a hard time swallowing it. Can you give me a tip on how to administer it without that much of a struggle.

BTW her vet prescribed me the ff:

2ml of oral antibiotic syrup (2x a day)

1inch of Nutripet high-energy concentrate gel

2 tablespoon of dextrose powder (dilute in her water)

On top of this I'm giving her the 3,393mg of sodium ascorbate plus a teaspoon of turmeric. I'm afraid of overdosing my dog with a lot of medication, so I want to hear your opinion about it. Is it too much or not?

Hi Ilse,

Glad that you had some good results with Misha. Did you continue with a daily maintenance dose? How given and how often?

Thanks,

Hi Springfields!

I too am from the Philippines and if you read the post here concerning vitamin c, you will read that I was able to cure the open pyometra of my dog way back in the year 2015. That's true, there is no available manuka honey here but turmeric and vitamin c is locally available.

Treatment of your dog using vitamin c depends on the level of saturation that can be achieved in the bloodstream. Meaning, you can give as much vitamin c to your dog until you observe diarrhea. Diarrhea is an indication that her bloodstream is already saturated with vitamin c hence you must taper the dose to the point where your dog will no longer experience diarrhea.

I then used 4,500 mg. of vitamin c for my dog that is medium-sized. Since you have a small dog, I suggest trying 1,000 mg. initially. Give 500 mg. in the morning and 500 mg. in the evening. If she does not experience diarrhea, increase the dose to 1,500 mg. the following day. Give 500 mg. doses in the morning, lunchtime, and at night. If there is no diarrhea, increase the dose again to 2,000 mg. the following day, and so on. Once the dog experiences diarrhea, decrease the dose to the previous one and then maintain it until the dog is healed. You know that she is cured already when there is no more vaginal discharge.

I used Vitamin C in the form of sodium ascorbate for my dog. It is available in our local drugstores. It is white and crystalline in appearance. If you like to use turmeric also in conjunction with vitamin c, by all means do so because it is also an anti-inflammatory and an immune system booster.

Good luck and I wish your dog well.

My Maltese has ME. She is almost 3 yrs old. We have been managing this for almost 1 yr now. I have found the best recipe for her is a raw diet, however I mix it up in a blender. It's almost like a raw dog smoothie...I also give this to her in a slow feeder bowl. As long as there are no chunks & it's liquidy enough...she doesn't throw up. I also brush her teeth, as she can't have anything else. I have a homemade toothpaste I have just started using & it's great! When we first found out she had this, she went from 7 lbs to almost 5!!! She was a walking skeleton. I cried almost everyday! I was using Acana kibble at the time, just added water and blended it. She did fine on that, but wasn't gaining weight. She is now back to herself!!! You wouldn't know she had any issues until it comes to feeding time!!! It's manageable & she's not uncomfortable anymore!!

Hi guys I need your help..

I have a 2 yrs old pekingenese who was just diagnosed with an open pyometra. Her vet strongly suggested an immediate operation however I don't have that much money. Right now my dog is already active and her appetite is back but the vet told me that if I don't put her to surgery as soon as possible she might suffer more in the near future.

I read this post while searching for alternative treatment for my dog, I would like to try giving her Vitamin C, turmeric and honey but I don't know how much should I give her. My dog is only 3.2kilos (7.05lbs)

Also for the vitamin C, what specific type should I look for? Can an organic honey be a substitute for manuka honey? I live here in the Philippines so Manuka honey is really hard to find.

I hope you can help me...

Thank you and God bless :)

Thanks, Theresa. You may have summed it up quite nicely thank you.

Let us hope the experts know what they are doing. They would seem to be doing their best with whatever they have available. Could no doubt do with an extra sponsor or two though!

Good Afternoon Theresa,

Again, thank you for the quick response. I actually look forward hearing from You and others concerned about my experiences I'm having with Xena.

I thought of the colloidal silver due also to the yeast infection that she gets in her ears as well, and wanting to detox her body and researching, this would be helpful. She still has the stuffy nose, I can't buy a humidifier at the this time. Her eyes aren't looking to good in the last two days. That hip has caused her a lot of pain and suffering. I want to help her heal! I don't want to think the worst.

Thank you for your suggestions and support for Xena, WE BOTH Appreciate it for all you and this forum have been able to help us with.

If you have any other information that can help especially for the pain on the hip and for her to walk, I'm listening.

Namaste Love & Light
