My elderly dog (60 pounds) got kennel cough for the first time from the vet exactly 5 days after going there to get vaccination boosters, including one for kennel cough! I added a few drops of 3% peroxide to his food, mixed with water, and he stopped coughing within about 48 hours. However, I didn't keep up the peroxide and the cough came back.. After a week of this, I took him back to the vet who told me, "Yes, it's possible he caught it here" and that it can take up to 2 weeks for it to run its course, maybe longer for older dogs. He ended up giving me antibiotics since my dog also had a runny nose and I was about to go out of town and leave a coughing dog with my dog sitter. The antibiotics kicked his healing into high gear and he stopped coughing the next day. So I like the peroxide remedy for kennel cough but recommend to definitely keep it up for a few days after symptoms disappear.

I think if one of my dogs gets kennel cough in the future, I'll try the peroxide, honey and fresh lemon juice remedy that I just read about in posts here on EC.

I actually got this remedy from you 6 years ago for my cat. He was having recurrent eye infections every 2 weeks that only responded to the vet's antibiotic drops for a short while.You had a whole blog about how to treat this with ACV: Dilute the vinegar with the " mother" 1:1 with water, saturate a cotton ball and rub between the cat's shoulder blades. I did this once and his infection was 75% gone. After using twice a day for a few days, I went to once a day, then every two days, etc. I found that a maintenance dose is giving that treatment every 3-4 days. No recurrent infections in 6 years since then. If I forget his eye might get watery and I know to treat more frequently for a few days. One vet had even suggested having his eye out. Thank you Earth Clinic!

  Apple Cider Vinegar, Witch Hazel

Mary, Thanks for that suggestion of the apple cider vinegar, witch hazel and vicks vapor rub. I have a Maltese mix and I noticed one black spot on her skin around her shoulder area. I'm not sure if it's what's described in this article but I cleaned it as you suggested and noticed an immediate change in the spot. I will keep cleaning it daily until it's gone.....if it doesn't go away completely or more appear, we'll be heading to the vet to make sure she's ok. I'm wondering if I should make the change in her dog food, she and her brother currently eat Grain Free Merrick. Tammy

Parasites

Hi, I'm just wondering if borax can be used to tackle blood parasites caused by ticks? My dog is presently on IV fighting for her life after contracting the E. Canis parasite from a tick. It wasn't picked up in the initial blood test they did, now it's in the critical advanced stages. She is lame and her body has developed large lumps where the parasites are literally eating her alive. The doxycylin is yet to make any improvement, any chance I could try borax?..Or any other ideas? Many thanks.

Cottage Cheese Foot Treatment for Yeast Infections

I had a dog who would lick his feet until they were red, raw and swollen, I think from yeast.

This always worked. Fold a grocery store baggie in half. In the middle of it place a gauze square. Put a heaping tablespoon of cottage cheese on that straight from the fridge. Place the dog's foot on the cottage cheese, gather the baggie up around his leg and hold it all in place for about 30-45 minutes with Vetwrap (the bandage that only sticks to itself) getting it snug, but allowing for good blood circulation.

Then rinse the foot with plain water and towel dry. The friend who told me about the cottage cheese said it worked because the germs would rather live in the cottage cheese than in you. I've used it to cure infections on myself too.

Caution:

Don't put cottage cheese anywhere it can't be rinsed off well (never in dog's ears) because the germs multiply in it rapidly and it will make the infection worse if it's not rinsed away.

Our Great Dane had developed a bad cough which sounded as if he had something stuck in his throat. The vet said he had kennel cough and prescribed Tramadol, whose side effects include seizures. We gave him Monolaurin pellets pressed into hard butter, twice a day. Two days later he is totally healed.

CoQ10, Lipoform

Hi. My dog was diagnosed with heart issues. She was having trouble breathing so I took her to the regular vet near our house right when they opened. He didn't even touch her or check her out and said that she just had allergies. I left there and as I was getting ready for my day she started the chocking sound again. I called the holistic vet and got in immediately. She DID check her out. Her back paw pulse was racing and she asked if I had taken her for a run, I said no. Come to find out her heart had enlarged so bad it was pushing down on her trachea.

She worked her magic and gave her CQ10 and a product called Lipoform. I added in Hawthorne berry. She lost weight and is a whole different dog now. I've even adopted the same protocol for myself with great success.

I used Ted's recipe and I used a rag to give my poor stray a sponge bath. I put him in a large kennel and was able to wipe him down pretty well with Ted's recipe. My kitty had the mange on his head and most of his back along the spine area. He had lost quite a bit of hair and his skin was red, inflamed and scabby. After 3 days, there was no more redness and hair was beginning to grow.

After 1 week, he is 95 percent healed!!

This is miracle stuff! He's a completely different cat in just one week! He's actually soft to touch!

Thank you so much! I wish I could post pictures of the results after just one week!

EC: Hi Tien, please email your pics to [email protected] and we will add them to your post. Yay!

ACV for Ringworm

I have been treating one cat with the topical apple cider vinegar to the cats coat as it has developed ringworm and has infected the other cat too. One will allow me to apply the other cat runs from me. So I mix a small dose with chicken broth and mix it with the wet food. It has been helping. Also, I made a separate solution to spray on the carpet area to ride of any parasites or fleas. Since it is not harmful and natural safe for pets.

My greyhound had Addison's disease for many years and we found a wonderful homeopathic vet that treated him and allowed him to live out his natural life. The vet never even met him, we did all consults over the phone. He felt the treatments were so effective he actually wrote and published a paper about the treatments.

Bladder Stones

I have to write so anyone with a blocked cat because it is an emergency and when I called every vet from palm springs to indio to beaumont, when I told the vets I needed help but didn't have much money and my cat was dying, not one vet was available to help. Go figure?! Well it costa anywhere from 4 to 7k to hav we the vet do their thing. So instead of watching my cat die a horrible painful 24-48 hr death. I researched and researched and found out that organic apple cider vinagar with the mother 1/4 teaspoon to 3 teaspoons water mixed and forced into ur cats mouth with an eyedropper every hour as best u can and the vinager starts killing the bacteria that's killing your cat.

Then I found you can massage the cat's bladder gently and I would hold cat under arms ( called a ragdoll technique) and stand cat up. Seriously the cat was on its way out. I did this all night but guess what by morning the cat had peed allllll over the place. He is now on the road to recovery without spending thousands on a vet and having the cat die a cruel death. I read about a ton of cat owners battling this only to have their beloved cat put down thinking there was no other option. I'm telling you there is!
