Apple Cider Vinegar for Pyoderma in Dogs

My terrier developed skin bumps that looked like pimples, that then became oozy and crusty. Vet gave him antibiotics that worked, but it came back every time. I'm not a fan of antibiotics, so I began researching topical treatments.

By far, a combination of 50/50 organic ACV and filtered water worked the best. I make a small, fresh batch of the liquid and apply it to the spots with a cotton ball. It is important to use a fresh piece of cotton ball on each spot and then toss it. Do not dip back into the ACV mixture. I gently "scrub" the spot to remove the crustiness and allow the ACV to penetrate the area and air dry.

I believe that the ACV acts as an antibacterial to cleanse the area and counteracts any yeast on the skin and dries the spot. I get immediate results. My dog had a quarter sized spot on his chest, after 3 days of treatment I can barely see the spot. In the past, he also had large areas around his groin. I swabbed to spots with ACV mixture and the skin looked pink in a few days.

You can also create a salve of organic coconut oil mixed with a few drops of tea tree oil. I apply this before bedtime. Frequent bathing with a good quality dog shampoo helps. I also trim my guy so that his fur cannot hide the spots and his skin can breathe.

He eats a commercial frozen raw food. Overly processed food with additives can cause all kinds of allergic reactions.

Cost is an issue for most of us. I found it less expense by having the products on hand at all times before getting a pup. Always check their hydration & make sure their gums don't get pale. These products can be used for other problems so it isn't like I am going to waste my money. You can tell by the smell if the pup has Parvo. There is nothing like it. I respect Veterinarians but cannot afford them except in emergencies. And as I do with my family, prefer herbal remedies that work for us. They aren't miracle cures of course & you have to use common sense for each situation. I do trust this manufacturer's products, though.

Our VET suggested garlic in low doses, as other vets we have seen through the years. High doses are toxic, just like high doses of other meds. But our vet suggested garlic for the dogs and he is not a holistic vet.

My beagle Tasha has a high grade heart murmur. She has been on enanapril and laziks. Last week she could not stand up. The vet put her on vetmedin. her heart rate was 145 at the time. I took her back to the vet and she said her heart rate was 170. the vetmedin seems to stop her coughing, but I have to force feed her. she will get up to drink water and pee outside.

I would like some advice on something to bring her heart rate down and something to entice her to eat. please help. I lost my jack russel who was 17 and my 20 yr old cat one week apart last year and 2 weeks after that Tasha was diagnoised with cancer. she had a tumor removed from 1 of her tits, and handled chemo, without any problems. shes all I have left. Shes 13 thank you for any info

Hi Melanie! I highly recommend the black salve but would contact the company for specific instructions as you say the mass is in the genital area. Are you sure this is the same type of wart or a mass of something else? I wouldn't be overly concerned about the little warts as long as they don't bother him and remain the same size. Sending healing light....

Love and light

My cat just started uti signs tonight (Saturday) and all local vets are closed until Tuesday after Christmas. She's making constant trips to litter box with just dribbles and there's sign of blood in her urine.

I gave her 50/50 syringe of ACV and water at 7pm. She did foam at the mouth but forgave me when I gave her some wet food. How often should I give her the solution until I can get her to the vet? She's 2 years old and only about 7 pounds. Thanks.

Before reading up on this I had previously used a chi method about 24 hours prior to messaging it. Heating my hands up rubbing them together violently, then holding a hand to the eye concentrating the "chi". Well that didn't work lol! I read up on cherry eye, and before coming to this post I warmed the hands again and rubbed the eye in a large circular motion, and GONE!! I now find these posts and see massage as a cure. I know now, and will pass this on!!

Vitamin C, Turmeric, Manuka Honey for Pyometra

My dog (pitbull/lab) 11 years old was diagnosed with pyometra about 3 months ago. We noticed it when she kept bleeding and it kept getting worse. A week before everything she stopped eating and it seemed sick, but we thought it was the food. When the pyometra finally got to her body, we took her to a vet with an emergency visit and the doctor gave us a 50/50 choice. Surgery or antibiotics, of course we couldn't do the surgery and also, being 11 years old we didn't know how her body would react. Luckily by miracle, the antibiotics helped her and within 3 days she was eating. It was a lot of work and cleaning of the yard, but we managed and she got better..

Recently she once again drinking more water and was releasing mucous, but this time it was pink and not as excessive. surprisingly she still ate and had energy. I came on this website and followed the guidelines of Manuka, Turmic and Vit. C 3x a day and it has helped her a lot. She not only had a lot more energy than before, but she had less mucous and it's more clear. She still eats and believes she's getting extra in her food, so it was never a hassle to give it to her.

Luckily we caught it before it got worse, but I will continue to give her the Manuka, but. C and turmic, but 2x a day since it is harder for us to give it to her mid day.

To who ever I owe a thank you to, I am grateful for this website. It had saved us from letting our dog get sick and feeling such pain. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Hello. My 5 1/2 year old cocker spaniel was fine. Went to vet Banfield for physical, they gave her Lyme vaccine, we live in CT. That night she started changing, sluggish, not eating. This went on for 3 days. Called vet. No worries wait 5-6 days after shot, next day Riley worst, would not get up out of bed, called vet and insisted I bring her in, they denied it's the Lyme vaccine, they wanted to do more blood work etc which was just fine 3 days before, I denied the blood work, They gave her antibiotics and non steroid anti inflammatory. Still denying any issues of vaccine. Riley seemed a little better with 3 days of anti inflammatory. This morning, Riley is shaking, can't move well at all. This is 9 days after shot. She went outside but almost couldn't make it up the deck steps. She use to run and jump and be happy, now she is shaking in pain! What do we do??
