Pine Sol is extremely toxic and should not be used. I would not use it with dogs and children in the house. White vinegar, mixed with a little Dawn dish detergent and baking soda is safe and effective cleaner - cheap and non toxic.

Silicea 6c for Anal Gland Issues

My elderly dog started having anal gland issues - leakage and was licking his rear end constantly.  I recently moved to the area and haven't found a vet yet so I researched remedies on Earth Clinic and the net and found a great article about Silicea 6c for Anal Gland leakage. I bought it online and promptly tapped 2 pellets into the side of his mouth to dissolve as soon as I got them. (Didn't touch the pellets). I repeated this twice a day.

His issue was better in 24 hours and solved in 3 days. What a fabulous remedy.

Love turmeric and how it worked on your dog. How much would say for a 25 lb Boston terrier?

I would try 150mg of slippery elm bark 2-3x's day & probiotics 1x day/ every other day. I recommend Bene-Bac powder form. It has worked for my dog With his rectum anal problem, his was seriously sticking out after healing his intestinal problems the amount sticking out has reduced dramatically. I would recommend that you double check the appropriate dosage for your dog.

Please tell me you don't use Lysol. Do you understand what each ingredient does to your lungs as well as your fur baby health? clean with unscented lavender sugar soap, unscented castile soap etc...

Feline Pododermatitis - any natural treatments to boost the immune system and get my cats over this bothersome disease? I did find that raw honey helped with bleeding sores.

You need to listen to a vet and do real medicine if your golden has SAS and PS. That is incredibly serious and life-ending. Talk to your cardiologist. They will give you both heart medication and supplement advice.

I agree above that Petroleum Jelly is dangerous, so I'm glad you pointed out you use Un-petroleum jelly instead. Coconut oil helped me greatly.

How do I know how much of these herbs to give? My daughter 4 month old golden retriever was diagnosed with Grade 5 heart murmur --- he saw a cardiologist today with results: pulmonic stenosis and subaortic stenosis! I really want to try the herbal routee - can you give me some direction?

There is such a person as an animal chiropractor. Her name is Debbie O'Reilly D.C./Vibrant Energy Healing Center. She adjusts humans, horses, dogs and other animals. I have gone to her in the past for my sweet Pom, Teddy. Hope this helps

Any coconut oil that has "Refined" on the label won't taste like coconut. I get it at Whole Foods. Or you can buy MCT oil, which is the same thing, but no flavor (medium chain tryglycerides). I put some in a little brown glass dropper bottle so I can sneak a few drops into some Fancy Feast.

Cat Suddenly Lost Her Meow. What Should I Do?

Posted by Gert Jr (Madison) on 07/20/2020

This is a Pet question. My husband passed away after a week in hospital. Now I've noticed that our cat has lost her voice. Do you think she cried while home alone and then when I went back to work, traveled for the funeral, etc and has laryngytis? She opens her mouth and no sound comes out. I don't want to wait if it's a serious issue, but don't want to go to the vet if it's just hoarse and will come back.

Agree completely with last person. One of my male cats died a few weeks ago from a bad urinary blockage. Acute went to critical in one weekend, of course when regular Vet offices are closed and special pet emergency clinics charge a fortune which is disgraceful. Heck, they don't even return phone messages or emails. These animals are not like cars not starting -- flesh & blood the doctors take an oath to care treat. I only once had to try the AVC remedy and it worked on two cats. That was years ago. Now I have a male not peeing and a female barely peeing. They're not pooping much cause they're eating little. I tried three days of ACV & antibiotics. No results. I'm going to try something different again with ACV. It is so stressful for caretakers. I've shared my home with cats for 50 years. Only one death from kidney trouble. Cat was 23 yrs old! Nowadays cats keep getting sick with urinary and GI problems. It's gotta be the food.

Diatomaceous Earth for Dog's Flatulence

Many years ago our mid sized terrier mutt (approx. 30 lbs) had terrible gas. I put food grade diatomateous earth in his food (can't remember how much but got the info on a diatomateous web site) It worked almost immediately and I didn't need to continue it for long. It is totally safe to ingest but look up the amounts on sites for the benefits of diatomateous earth for pets. It also has many benefits for humans.
