My black lab had ear infection issues for the longest time and we treated him with everything under the sun the vet could think of, she ran every test. I changed his food, made his food, and finally the one couple things that have helped are warm water mixed with apple cider vinegar to clean the ear if its full of debris. Then after the debris is cleaned I put a few drops of tea tree mixed with coconut oil.

I do this twice a day until I see improvement. Its important to clean the ear thoroughly by massaging under the ear drum while the vinegar water mixture is in the canal. Let the dog shake his/her ear after you put the fluid in it will loosen and debris and then take either a cotton ball or gauze pad to clean completely.

Hi Lauren,

My 12 year old dog was diagnosed with congestive hear failure by my vet today. I googled the meds you gave your dog for heart failure, which happened to be a success. Could you please tell me where I can find CoQ10, LipoForm and Hawthornberry that you administered to your dog? Where should I order and how much should I give my dog?

After you put it on you in shower, do you rinse or how you do that?

Did you use the dropper to put drops of the mixture inside your dog's ear?

I tried the Manuka honey and tumeric and vitamin C mix for my dogs Pyometra and followed the correct dosing per my dog's weight and it did not work at all. Some of the infection discharged but her abdomen kept getting bigger and bigger and she finally lost the battle. All happened in a matter of couple weeks. From time I took her to the vet and got antibiotics for her but could not afford the $2000 surgery so I found this site with the natural remedy and I am saddened to say it did not work at all for my dog. She just kept progressively got worse with her condition. I would think before I trusted this remedy with my pets life with this concoction. If it worked for you then hallelujah but it did not for me and I lost my pet.

Have you considered using organic black tea? And/ or goldenseal? You would make the tea with less water for more concentration and soak a cotton ball and squeeze in the eye... goldenseal make a homemade saline solution with a couple drops of goldenseal and do the same. Also look into Lactoferrin.

Colostrum for Stimulating Immune System in Older and Allergic Dogs

I have a rescue pit bull who is around 10 years old. I've had him for around 5 years or so and throughout all of that time he has been plagued with itchy skin, ear infections and other allergies, sores between paws, sometimes vomits. His veterinarian advised me that its because his immune system is breaking down and that he will most likely have more frequent episodes. After some research and also after ordering an on line allergy kit to get an idea of what his worst sensitivities are I decided to try colostrum since probiotics didn't seem to work. Changing his diet helped a lot but within a day or so after supplementing him with colostrum, the scratching stopped. I just started so I will report back after a month or so but I'm very encouraged.

hi, apologies for contacting you regards this matter.. but I don't have the money for veterinary costs. My 13 year old female dog (15kg) has a suspected tumor on her from wrist/ankle which is quite inflamed, as I have been treating her naturally with turmeric, castor oil poultices yet since I have been treating her approx 2 weeks it seems to have got very inflamed.(stopped now as concerned) .I have reduced her raw food intake and feed her only a small handful of raw meat 2 x day and raw egg I am also giving her turmeric 1/2 teaspoon with her food twice a day and vit c pure ascorbate 1/3rd teaspoon twice daily with her food. (am I overdoing it?) I have been doing lots of research on alternative treatments and have a good feeling about colloidal silver and dmso with a little lugols but I am not sure of the application strengths and intervals (lots of conflicting advice) when to apply and the best way and would appreciate your help in this matter if at all possible. I have H2o2 @6%, colloidal silver @ 40ppm, dmso @ 99.9% pharma grade, castor oil organic, distilled water any help would be appreciated.. I spoke to amanda vollmer who advised me to start giving her 2tablespoons of her urine twice a day which I have been doing for nearly two weeks.. but now amanda has gone silent on me and I am pretty stuck.

kind regards

I know this article is from some years ago, but just in case someone like myself click here looking for some advice on a cat issue & thanks bathing their animal in peroxide would be a good idea, STOP! Aside from using hydrogen peroxide from helping a dog induce vomit, it is never safe for your animals. And cats are especially sensitive to it it can cause bleeding of the stomach or at the least irritation and is known to be FATAL! Do not use witch-hazel or alcohol either. I'm not going to make any suggestions, but I would probably go with something from the vet or at least go to an affordable site like They have a variety of baths for cats and dogs, you can find something safe for a bath instead of home remedies for the situation. I'm all for home remedies but just make you do your homework thoroughly first. Our animals rely totally upon us and it's our job to make sure they're safe in everyway.

EC: Hi Barbie, the poster is referring to Ted's Mange Cure, a combination of borax and peroxide highly diluted in water. It has been tested on thousands of dogs and cats worldwide since 2004 when it was first posted on this site. It is indeed a safe remedy.

I was looking for help, but after reading these suggestions I am shocked. Have you ever put vinegar on a cut of your own. Diluted or it, it will bring tears to your eyes. I couldn't imagine the pain in the ears when you place this in it. I hope earthclinic puts red flags all over this.

ONLY use Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth! The other kind is made for pool filters and is very dangerous to use around pets. Food grade is completely safe and even helpful to add to their food. It helps to eliminate internal parasites. One teaspoon in the food per day for a grown cat.

Keep studying - there is a lot of information on the web.

What strength of how are you giving your bird? I have 12% and 35% food grade. My Yorkie Ginger Pop had several tumors on her body but the vet can't operate due to her heart condition. I am on the 35% food grade for my lung cancer.
