Hi, Could you give me the name of the holistic vet in Oakland that you took your dog to? My dog was diagnosed with a heart murmur and I have been trying to find the best treatment for him.

  Re: Ear Mites in Cats

Hi. I read your posts and wanted to warn you and others to not ever use swimming pool grade DE for pets or people, especially if they can lick it and ingest it. I've heard of this killing some people's cats! (It has very toxic chemicals ). I appreciate your warning about the extra fine flour grade getting into the air and harming the lungs. I've read that one person's cat died from inhaling it. I see that you care and love your furry babies an awful lot, and it's refreshing to see someone trying so hard to make them comfortable. I hope you've found a remedy that at least works for a while. One trick to help keeps mites to a minimum on pet bedding, is to enclose cat beds in a zippered pillowcase, or two. That way you can easily just wash the pillowcases and changed them out fast without doing a ton of laundry (or put a folded up blanket or quilt inside the pillowcases). You can even use a big role of clear scotch tape to take the mites off and also some mineral oil to see if there are any on there with a magnifying glass. I hate ear mites!! Best of luck!

I have a 9 year old English bulldog who has been on apoquel and constant antibiotics for allergies. She went to a new vet who suggested Temaril p. My dog started Wednesday evening with 3 pills followed by 3 pills Thursday morning and evening and Friday morning before I became concerned with her panting. I gave her 1 pill Friday night and called the vet in the morning. I gave her 1 pill Saturday morning and the vet called back in the afternoon with instructions too decrease to 2 pills and so on. I decided to only give 1 pill Saturday night and she was up all night panting. It's Sunday now and I gave her 1/2 pill as to continue reducing the dose. She is not feeling well and I am concerned. What can I do?

Mix some flower of sulfur in the petroleum jelly until it has a light yellow tinge. Then apply to your dog. This works very well. You can also add a teaspoon of sulfur to a small dog's food/a tablespoon to a big dog. Mites hate sulfur as it kills them.

Please let me clarify that amazon black salve is used for cancer, warts, moles and skin tags. There may be other uses but you would have to contact the company.

Hi Aunt Bee,

I would speak with the company that makes amazon black salve for cats, dogs and horses. Their black salve can be taken internally in very minute portions.

As the rodent ulcer is more of an allergic reaction, I would first look at the food your kitty eats. Raw or even home cooked are best for clearing so many health issues. That's because it's real food! I always use glass bowls & they are cleaned in dishwasher.

Have you tried adding l-lysine to the food? (from health food store - give 1/4 of capsule in food once a day). What about milk thistle to gently detox the liver? (give up to 10 drops in food once a day). Colloidal silver is a good choice so keep giving that internally (1/2 teaspoon in food once a day) and externally. You could also apply coconut oil to the area as it has healing properties.

Love and light

I would like to state human insulin does work on cats. I had a cat on it for years and he was very well regulated on it as well with a proper diet of Hills Science diet W/D that is formulated for managing glucose. Its very definitely not saw dust. He even reverted back to not being a diabetic a couple times but couldnt hold it there.

My 16 year old diabetic, stomatitis cat was diagnosed by her veterinarian with demodectic mange. Will Ted's solution work on this type mange? I don't want to traumatize her with a bath unless I know it's going to work. We did the lime sulfur dips the last time she had this and it was VERY traumatic for her so will only do that again as a last resort. Any other tried and true treatments for this type of mange? Thanks for your help!

Turmeric, Baking Soda and Aloe Vera for Cat's Skin Cancer

I have a remedy that has worked for my cat. She's a elderly kitty she is my sweet soulmate. Shes been very patient but it was tiring her out all this treatment . So its taken a matter of few months of patience I will say to finally cure heal her skin cancer. Also her mites on her nose to make it even more stressful have come over the last week on her nose and in her ears. I was at my wits end praying for help. She is a fighter of the age of 19 years she is still holding on now well now. She has the sqaumous carcinoma on her ear tips. I noticed lots of posts on it on the nose but none on the ears. So like to be the first to help other beloved cat owners in the world.

I applied first turmeric for one month. It was a messy process but helped it calm down on her ears after 1 month. It was the golden paste: mix turmeric, olive oil and a bit of spring water heated up and cooled in fridge, then applied with a make up brush brushed on. Then after that it started to inflame up bit again when I stopped it.

So second month I applied bicarbonate of soda, just a tiny bit mixed with the purest aloe vera gel. It was very soothing for her and she didn't lick the ear at all this time anyhow. So it was safe to put on skin I researched it but not to lick it off. So to be careful that kitty cannot lick at it.

Well after a few weeks her whole skin has improved the red sore has gone. At the end of ear scab. just scabbed over for a week red inflamed. I kept going and then finally now by my amazement new fresh skin is growing now. Finally pink but that's new skin so I am v pleased relieved so far.

Red skin cancer gone new skin growing.

So to help others if your cat gets it don't give up, keep going if used twice a day small amount pasted on you will beat kitty's skin cancer naturally no operations.

Also I treated her mites in her ears and swarmed on her nose all over her face with colloidal silver sprayed on nose away from her eyes gently. Then I applied cats sunscreen over the site twice a day. The cats sunscreen drowns mites and is safe if using a cats special sunscreen can bye online. I really hope I help cat owners. I will update on her progress. So far so good.

Namaste. Nicky UK

I had my 2 13 year old maltese vaccinated for rabies by our county yesterday. One dog seems to be fine and the other was limping yesterday so I soaked his leg in warm epsom salt water. He didn't eat anything yesterday or today and has been sleeping both days. He developed diarrhea today. I gave him some peptobismol which usually makes him feel better but it didn't. I gave him a half pill of Imodium just a few minutes ago. Now he has vomited. I am pissed beyond words. I looked up reactions to this damn shot and now am so worried, so tomorrow we make a trip to the vet. I pray that he will be fine until then. They were vaccinated with the 3 year one. That's it for shots for them I say. In May my vet prescribed ear drops for an ear infection each one had. Both went deaf, the sick one now has partial hearing and the other has none. After I noticed I read the paper inside the prescription and low Andy behold, it stated at it may cause temporary or permanent hearing loss. Are you kidding me

Hi, there is a powder called Diatomaceous Earth. Diatomaceous earth is 100% natural, 100% non-toxic. (*treat D.E. like baby powder, you dont want to get it in you/pets eyes/nose). It will mechanically kill ANY BUG with an exoskeleton! * It can also De-worm your pet & do a restorative cleanse on your pet as well as YOU! If your pet had joint issues it helps restore joint, bone, skin, & De-Worms too!

Make sure it's food grade diatomaceous earth. The other kind is used in sugar refineries, pond scum removal, and oil spills. I've been using it since 1998, my Gran' who was an herbalist first told me about it. I hope this helps.
