Medieval is right! They should be ashamed! But, then, I doubt that they are given any courses in holistic healing while they are in vet school. I'm so glad for you and your kitty that the ACV worked. I'm also wondering how they could possibly justify charging you $500.00 for doing, what, an x-ray and consultation? Thieves! And, they are using our little, innocent pets to make themselves rich. Go Earth Clinic!

What form of vitamin C did you use? How long did it take for your dog to completely get over the pyometra? And has it came back at all? How long did puss drain after treatment.

I was taught that Boric Acid shouldn't be used in inflamed ear because the acidic property could have the tendency to burn the inflamed ear tissue. Is there any information relating to this?

Candice, next time, add Lysine to your mix and that should take care of the pink eye and respiratory infection in just a few days. I crush a 500mg pill and mix it in the infected cats' wet food (can also use yogurt or smashed sardines if the cat is finicky) or put it in some broth or something and syringe it in the mouth (last resort). Give the powder twice a day, along with the ACV (with mother) on his fur (so he has to lick it off and will ingest it) and you should see improvements within a day or two.

It is one of the things I keep it in my 'arsenal' of pet things along with the ACV (apple cider vinegar with mother) and colloidal silver.

Re: Airbmac in Spokane, WA on 02/10/2011: I know this is an old post but if anyone comes across that post they need to know to NOT GIVE THIER PET STRAIGHT APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. Seriously, try that yourself. It's good for you but when you drink it straight IT HURTS because IT BURNS. It can also eat away the lining of the esophagus, which causes immediate acute problems of its own. This is why you are supposed to - and why every direction says to - DILUTE IT. I cannot emphasize enough how much pain you will put your pet in if you are cruel enough to force undiluted ACV down their throat.

Which brings us to another issue. "She was not happy with me" is the understatement of the century and your pet's unhappiness and pain could have been completely avoided. If you give your pet something new you need to research it; find out what it does and how, how to give it, what side effects it can cause, what the right dose is for your pet's weight, age, and even gender. If you do your due diligence, you sometimes find out that something would be bad for your pet in particular, or the side effects are worse than the original problem. In the case of ACV, you'd find out that it hurts when given or taken straight. So obviously no due diligence was done, and this pet owner just decided to give their pet something they heard about on the internet that they didn't research first. Always, ALWAYS do your own research - on everything.

My little pup almost a year has this and my question is, are the lub eye drops simply over the counter human use or do I need to get prescription from vet?

My Schnauzer had an eye infection of some kind. Pus/gunk in his eye. Combined black tea bag/chamomile tea bag and one capsule of Golden Seal into a cup of hot water. Strained it and added a touch of salt. Day two and gunk was gone. Thank you so much. Side note: He loved the smell, I mean he wanted some of that brew. I let him have a little sip of it and he is crazy for it?

What did not work, colloidal silver. 3x a day. Did absolutely nothing.

I'd use a 6x or 6c for pets or children. Don't be afraid of using the 12x or 12c if that's all you can find. Be sure to read up on how to use the remedies. You don't dose if they are responding. Seems counterintuitive compared to modern medicine.

Hi Art, thanks for your response, could you tell me where you purchased your products and in what amounts you mixed them and how you prepared your mixture.Which Essiac did you buy? I checked the product I am using (Floressence) It does not have chapparall or echinacea in it.It does have some other herbs not in the original formula.Have been using it for a couple of days now and my cat has started eating again, but seems to be drinking little water.Also, how long did you do the treatment 3X a day.

Aspirin bone broth coconut oil and kombucha so far. She won't take solids. She's staggering, eyes darting, drooling one side, one eye won't shut. Any advice before having a vet look tomorrow.

There is a wonderful product that dissolves struvite crystals-which have been a problem with 2 of our male kitties. It is called "Carpon", produced by Orthomolecular Specialities in San Jose, CA. It literally saved one kitty from having to have his male genitalia altered by the vet. Yikes. When the kitty shows signs of distress, you give him 1 tablet twice daily for three days and then go to 1 or 2 daily.

Before we found this product our life was a nightmare whenever kitty's urethra was plugged. A quote from Dr. Belfield's website: "Orthomolecular Specialties was introduced in 1976 as a result of clinical applications to specific nutritional protocols for the treatment, prevention, and control of specific disease processes beyond deficiency diseases. These clinical applications were undertaken by Dr. Wendell Belfield, Veterinarian, in his small animal practice over a thirty-seven year period. Belfield's clinical knowledge as a practicing veterinarian along with his experience and training in compounding pharmacy were the catalyst for enhanced nutritional products that successfully addressed ineffective conventional treatment protocols for many animal diseases." Dr. Belfield is getting old. I am stocking up on his Carpon and some other products because I do not know what will become of his excellent products when he passes away.

My 12 yr old male who had lymphoma got 2 eyedroppers 3 times a day. But I also added Echinacea, Chapparall and Red Clover teas to the Essiac mix. It cured him.

Olive Oil for Matted Fur

After reading about putting olive oil on cat's matted hair, I was willing to give it a try. I really wanted to avoid any grooming salons if I could help it. I've tried combing the matted knots out, but I just couldn't they were too tight. This was my last shot before I was forced to take her to the groomer. I applied olive oil on a few spots. My cat was wondering what the heck I was doing. She'd rather be brushed than me putting a substance on her..It wasn't easy. I tried for 3 days, reapplying little by little. Well today, I could see they were kind of hanging there. Still attached tho. I thought.. this olive oil trick didn't work! I took out her comb and Wala! The mats came out super easy! I was so happy and I know my cat was too. I showed my daughter what came off and she was surprised. She was very sceptical. So, give it a try, even if it takes a few days. You will be amazed!

Zelda, there is no spray mentioned here that cures a heartworm infection. The only spray mentioned is to repel the mosquitoes that bite the dog and infect him with the heartworms and that is no guarantee that a mosquito won't bite. If your dog has been diagnosed with heartworms then to tell you what I and some others here have been using on our dogs is all I can do because I am not a veterinarian. I looked up the Bandit's Buddies heartworm program and ordered all the supplements from theherbsplace dot com. They tell there how to use the program. If you sign up for the Nature's Sunshine membership there you will get reduced shipping and other stuff for doing so. If I knew how to have you go through me to do it I would get something from it but I don't know how to do that yet. Now to tell you what some others mentioned here that has also helped their dogs is they use VRM2-sm which is made by Systemic Formulas. Theresa has posted their phone number earlier in these posts as you don't use the protocol with it that is on the bottle for humans but by calling them you can find out what the protocol is for your dogs age and weight. Apparently using one or the other methods also eliminates the need for using heartworm prevention meds from the vet but you will have to read/research how to change from treating the infection to a maintenance/prevention dose once the dog tests as cured as I don't have that info yet. It also helps to feed dogs some raw garlic every day. There is a myth out there that garlic is dangerous for dogs which is not true although onions ARE very dangerous for dogs. The dangerous ingredient in onions is greatly reduced in garlic and has never hurt any of my dogs in over 40 years. Again I am not a veterinarian and so I can't tell you what to do but if you read everything on this site about heartworms you will know a lot.
