Hello how much borax do you put in the water for your dogs? I have 2 large dog's 1 Rottweiler that's been very ill he has torn ACL right now and I believe has cancer has surgery in 2 weeks for acl and our lab/springer is pretty healthy but am concerned about our water where we live very high levels of manganese and obviously fluoride and we were also told Plastics 😳! So what amount would I put in the water? And would anything help my Rottweiler (Chopper) with his torn ACL? I know it helps with arthritis but does it help with maybe the ACL? Thank you in advance I know this is an old thread hopefully you will see this!

I realize that the post I'm replying to is from 2016! But on doing a search about what blocks the absorption of phosphorus, the answer is Calcium, not magnesium! This information may help with more recent issues. It's just a FYI…I didn't find how much should be given, just that magnesium won't help block or eliminate excess phosphorus.

I would say yes. I realize this post is somewhat older. I give my almost 17 year old, 22 pound dog, 50 mg ubiquinol daily, plus hawthorn for her heart murmur. Along with other supplements, she has stayed stable for over 3 years. She has never been on pharmaceuticals. She was diagnosed by a vet cardiologist. She did have a bout with heartworm about six years ago.

Goldenseal, Monolaurin, Vitamin C, Lysine for Feline Herpes

Feline Herpes cure - Vit-C, Lysine, Monolaurin and Goldenseal.

My Persian 2 year old got spayed and the stress called out her herpes. She got cankers (lesions) all over her the front of her tongue and it was too painful to eat. Saliva dripping all down her front. So I got some pain meds from the vet and put her on it to first get rid of the pain. Also got some of the ointment you rub inside her ear to make her hungry. Got some fatty rich food called Recovery from Royal Canin. And I loaded that with - and here it is folks - plant based Vit-C, Lysine, Monolaurin and Goldenseal. What a fracking combo! All can be taken by animals (researched it first) and all smash viruses in different ways. Goldenseal is the bomb for a natural antibiotic, I don't think there's anything better. You sprinkle half a cap in their food, of each one, and feed at least a couple times a day. It's like sending the army in against that herpes.

BOOM, done in 3 days.

Feline Chronic Sinusitis From Mold in Canned Food

3 months ago
Posted by DJ (Oregon) on 02/26/2023

My cat ate canned cat food (made in the USA) last spring that made her very sick. She lost her appetite for days, urinated copious (large) amounts of urine, was so weak she couldn't jump on the bed. I had to put a chair next to the bed, and a small box next to the chair (basically made a ladder).

All in all she was sick for about ten days. I thought she was going into chronic renal failure, and wasn't able to get her to a vet because lots of the vets in this rural area retired due to COVID. Finally, after 10 days, was able to see a vet. She wasn't in renal failure. Some of her labs were abnormal, but not terribly elevated.

I had the State Department of Agriculture do some testing on a can of that food. They didn't order the right tests, the testing could have been more comprehensive. But their testing did show 3 kinds of mold in the food (which had meat and butternut squash in it). Each mold type was within the limits for it's type of mold. But the three together seem to have pushed my kitty over the edge.

She seems to have chronic sinusitis from the mold. Does anyone have ideas on what might help help her? She's also had pink eye in the past few months, and I've used 1/2 apple cider vinegar and 1/2 water on the scruff of her neck with good results. She's an only cat, and lives indoors. Your feedback appreciated!

My indoor only cat has somehow gotten ear mites in his left ear with the classic coffee ground look and very crusty by the edge. It also smells.

I have a bottle of Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract ear drops. Can I put a few drops directly into his ear canal or can I only wipe the inside of his ear flap with the GSE and a cotton ball? Please advise.

How do you administer a curcumin supplement to a cat without staining everything?? Curcuma stains are notorious, you often can't get them out and they don't only stain clothes, but can stain tiles, (faux) leather couch etc.

1,000th Comment. By the way, Ted's borax and peroxide bath for mange helped me heal my dog in 2011. In the process, the neem oil/carrier oil rub was invented that helped others along the way. Peace to Ted.

  Apple Cider Vinegar for Cat's Cough

Our dearest kitty just left the earth today, but before we found out that he had very serious conditions --enlarged heart, tumour, which we had not imagined, as he was well and frisky, he had a sinus and lung probelms breathing (the heart couldn't handle the load) Nonetheless, the day we gave him the OACV, as suggested here --and bless you all -- he immediately started breathing better. Which the vet's injection had not changed in the least. And each day was better, until he suddenly went downhill two days ago, for these more serious reasons. Thank you for having made his last days better, with a remedy I had never heard of for kitties, in all the years they have blessed me with their lives and purrs...

  Apple Cider Vinegar for Cystals in Cat

Posted by Gem Em (Montréal) on 02/18/2023

Hello everyone!! Im new to the group and so happy I found you all.
My sweet, almost 2 year old male cat was taken to the emergency the other day because he was talking to us, telling us he had pain, licking himself and forcing to pee without success. They told us it was crystals in his urine.
After a very expensive couple of days on an IV and a catheter, we took him home.
He currently seems ok except for not drinking much, not having pooped for 2 days and still peeing in little but multiple quantities. The vet gave us 4 different meds to give him 3x/day and we're wondering if they may be constipating him.

We heard about apple cider vinegar working wonders at dissolving the crystals and promoting urinary health but we're unsure about mixing it with his meds and what quantities to administer.

If anyone has any advice for us we'd be really grateful, thank you!

Ubiquinol or CoQ10 for a Dog's Heartworm Treatment?

Posted by Andrew (Wellington, FL) on 02/18/2023

I see that many dog owners report that CoQ10 is great for heartworm. I know that for humans, Ubiquinol is the preferred form over CoQ10, so is Ubiquinol better for dogs, too?

Remedies for Glaucoma in Cat Helping

My 16-year-old kitty named Violet has glaucoma in both eyes. Her vision fluctuates, but I can tell she's going blind. I'm treating her holistically. I'm feeding her Nulo Freestyle dry cat food and clean well water. Her manuer is dry, so I'm going to add some wet food. I put MSM eye drops in her eyes usually once a day, but I plan to up that. The MSM eye drops are by a company called Dexterity Health. The drops contain MSM, distilled water, and vitamin C. I'm giving her 3 products by a company called Standard Process: VF Hemp Oil for cats and dogs. It's supposed to relax the optic nerve and address pain. It seems to work for her; Feline Hepatic Support for liver metabolism. It has a long list of holistic ingredients to include amla extract (vitamin C), anti-oxidants, enzymes, amino acids, minerals....; A-C Carbamide which contains vitamin A & C, and carbamide. Carbamide is also known as urea and moves fluid through the system. People use it to reduce glaucoma eye pressure. I mix the A-C Carbamide powder with Dr. Vitamin Solutions Eye & Vision Support and put it in some tuna. She eats that up. At this stage of the game (she's 16), my goal is to keep her out of pain and prevent her eyes from being removed. I think that it is successful so far. She gets a little pissy about taking the meds, but too bad. I plan to get some of that glycerine to keep on hand in case she has a bad flare up. I also rife her, but that's a whole other can of worms. It would be so helpful if they could talk.

Cat Sinus Infection Remedies

I have a 10 year old cat with a sinus infection that has been antibiotic resistant. Over 2 years and vet visits, no help but the antibiotics are toxic to her.

For 7 days skipping some days, I have used a nasal spray I bought through Amazon, its 2% potassium iodine & fulvic acid. It's working well! She's the best I've ever seen her except after giving a round of antibiotics, and I can't keep giving those since it takes the life out of her because antibiotics given so frequently are toxic, literally.

So everyone, try the 2% potassium iodine/ fulvic acid nasal spray, made in the USA.brand name is Triquetra, Nasomin, blu& white box.

I have for 7 days

Need Help for Bengal Cat With Chronic Vomiting Issue

My Bengal vomits regularly shortly after eating. She does bolt her food, not sure why as her brother rarely pushes her off her bowl and I feed them separately. The vomiting has been going on for several months. I've tried cooked chicken and white fish, she will be okay for a week and then starts vomiting again.

Vitamin C, Turmeric, Manuka Honey for Pyometra in Dog

My baby girl has Pyrometra…. I was dreading taking her to the vet because I didn't know what they were going to do. So in the middle of the night, I woke up and came across this website. It suggested using the Manuka honey, the turmeric, and the vitamin C. She was discharging heavily, and I was scared. I started her on the mixture Friday, today is Sunday and her discharge is almost gone. She's eating now and is up and playing. I can't thank this website enough! We are going to clear up this infection and then go have her fixed so she doesn't have to go through this again. Thank you again!
