I was told about supplementing Vitamin C for dogs by a family that has bred American Bulldogs for over 30 years. None of their dogs that they have bred ever got hip dysplasia, something that is not uncommon in American Bulldogs. They told me to make sure that I use a naturally sourced Vitamin C with the co-factors, such as those derived from rose hips, amla etc. because they have found over the years that the results are much better than giving the ascorbic acid version of Vitamin C.

Wondering if anyone knows how the olive oil and milk works?

I tried the ACV diluted a couple of days ago and my dog went nuts.

He is a cavalier king charles and his ears are always sore so I wanted to make sure I will be using the most gentle remedy going forward.

I have a mini schnauzer who has pancreatitis and wanted to know if it would harm her or cause a flare up if I gave her 1/2 to 1 tsp of BSM for arthritis?

Would it harm her to give her 1/2 to 1 tsp of BSM for arthritis or would the sugar turn to fat and be too much?

Pets and Vitamin C

Everyone knows that most animals produce their own vitamin C, except that isn't necessarily true.

In the wild that probably works, but our pets eat dry food that has been processed at high temps and is devoid of probiotics and enzymes. Their ability to make vitamin C is impaired.

All dogs need a distemper shot - don't do it. Distemper is canine scurvy, and a dose of C cures it.

My friends had a little dog they were going to put down because he had arthritis so bad he could barely crawl. I watched him drag himself to his water dish and I felt so bad for him. On a shelf above the dish was a jar of chewable vitamin C tablets. I crumbled one into the water.

Next day, the day they were going to put him down, they called me, "What did you do to our dog? He is running around like a puppy! "

Now I regularly give my pets a little C powder and ACV in their water.

Be careful using canola oil internally. It's real name is Rape Seed Oil... It's a creation with its intended use being as an insecticide.

I added water to my female dog's dry food and microwaved it for like 7 or 8 seconds (warm but not too hot) so it would make a tasty broth that she would drink. We did this because we had to pull many teeth out due to her being a puppy mill rescue. Her urine is no longer so strong and so doesn't kill the grass!

RE: BORON WORKS FOR DOGS

I have a bordeaux who is now 10,3 yrs ago her hip went. Out the blue she was in excruciating pain it was heart breaking I thought my dog can't cope with this pain. The painkiller off the vets wasn't touching it. She couldn't get up 1 stair and sleeps on my bed so I had to stay downstairs with her she couldn't find a position that eased her pain, she never slept for 3 days she just stood panting it was so bad. Then I remembered Boron which I take myself daily and gave her 10 mg Boron caps daily to begin with and it was a miraculous result within 2wks she was in less pain and it got better every day. You still couldn't touch her back without a yelp but wow I was amazed.

That was 3yrs ago and she is 10 now, still sleeps on my bed every night jumps up. She has no problem touching her hips no pain and she will run round chasing squirrel's anytime. I was so amazed at how effective it is I saw it.

Tumor on Dog's Ear Open and Bleeding

Posted by Jolene (Seattle, WA) on 09/12/2022

Hello EarthClinic Family, I've been reading posts all day on how to effectively & naturally help remove a growth on my dog's ear. It's about an inch, has been there for over a year but recently he's started to scratch it and it's open & bleeding. It has fairly round edges but uneven in places as it has grown. I don't know whether to use Camphor, DMSO, Manuka, Essiac, etc. There's so much information I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Thank you kindly.

Hi Darinka,

Diet plays a significant role in dog ear troubles. My dogs had itchy and inflamed ears, especially in the summer, until I put them on a freeze-dried raw food diet. Issues went away within a week. But they still needed a good ear flush from time to time. I used Epiotic advanced cleaner for that with very good results.

Yes! Garlic oil for dog earache.

How to make:

Also, Gentian Violet diluted down to 0.5% with water works excellent for fungal infections in the ears for both human and animals. By I think it may be banned in Australia…. But double check me on that.

Can I use fresh garlic juice mixed with olive oil or coconut oil for my dogs ears? He hasn't got mites but painful ear constantly and the vets are useless with their ear drops. Thank you

Ma'am the diarrhea is actually a Herx reaction. Bc there's a sudden die off of the parasite in a pet and people alike.

Started treatment for our cat yesterday and put about 1/2 tsp of DE on his wet food twice. This morning I could not see ONE tapeworm raising its ugly head!! Will keep it up 3x/day for at least another week and then report back.

Our Bordernese seemed to have an issue with his ear. Kept on shaking his head violently. I cut HP with water at a ration of 50:50, wetted a cottonpad with it and carefully massaged his inner ear. All good after first treatment. Thank you, earthclinic!!
