I'm in the same boat! Ear mites from hell! We're going on 6 months of this nightmare. Hundreds of dollars. Several vet visits. What did you find that worked?I've used Tresaderm, Zymox, coconut oil, colloidal silver, garlic infused olive oil, hartz ear mite drops, Revolution, Vetercure ear drops, I might even be forgetting something I've tried. It's a nightmare! I feel so bad for our poor kitty! She hates having her ears cleaned and I have to do it nightly!

My 15 year old Yorkie has just been diagnosed with CHF. I'm a firm believer in all natural products and herbs for myself but would love to have more info about a régime for my yorkie. It breaks my heart to see him struggle to breath upon exertion.

I think coconut oil is not processed the same as other oils, and you can uptake it through skin if you have nausea, or add some ginger. Dogs love it

If your dog has any issues with IBS or pancreatitis, DO NOT give them any oils of any kind.

I gave my 9 year old Golden Australian Shepherd ground flax seed in her dinner. This was after 2-3 nighttime accidents. The accidents have not returned since.

I have been using coconut oil with a small amount of oregano oil added in to brush my Pomeranian's teeth for years. And have not had to have her teeth cleaned since I started! She used to have gingivitis but within days of using this it was gone. I brush her teeth every morning first thing she never has bad breath and her teeth are white and beautiful. And she loves the taste. If I get busy and forget for a few days, the gingivitis starts coming back and she starts getting build up on her teeth. It's very obvious the difference it makes. I melt the coconut oil, add enough oregano so I can barely taste it, then pour it in a jar and let it cool. *Tip for dogs with tiny mouths My Pom is only 4 1/2 pounds so finding a small enough brush was a problem. Colgate makes tiny disposable toothbrush that come in a 4 pack with a dot in the middle. You have to pop that dot out and rinse it off because dogs can't have fluoride, but once you do that, the brush is the perfect size and lasts for months! Hope this helps some of you!!

We put ACV into the dogs water for his enlarged prostate. He hasn't had any more symptoms so we think it is working. As he is a senior dog ACV will be helping with joints too.

This article saved my dobie!

I had just got my baby and the person who I got him from claimed he was 9 weeks and I took him to the vet to find out he was only 6 weeks and need to be dewormed. While after being dewormed, he wouldn't eat or drink anything, he had lost 1lb in a day and you could see his hip bones! I immediately took him back to the vet and he said he had all the signs of parvo and that it would cost me $280 just to do the tests! Normally that wouldn't have been an issue but I had just moved into my new house with my 3 young daughters and being a full time college student with the new semester starting $280 was a lot at the moment.

The vet gave me some medicines to take home and give him, I started him on the medicines and it seemed to have made him worse! He started throwing up everywhere and just wanted to sleep. So frantically I googled for ways to treat him naturally and came across this post at 3 am, I immediately wrote everything down and went to my local health foods store at 9 am.

I bought the activated charcoal, coconut water, sovereign silver and ACV. By the 2nd does he was up eating and walking around! Today is now day 3 and he's put some weight back on , he's jumping around playing , he's getting back to his normal self.

This natural remedy works and I'm so thankful for these posts because without it I probably would have lost my little boy.

If she were mine, I would offer her some refined virgin coconut oil because it has a strong effect on the bowls which may be stopped up. A little castor oil may also work. Then offer her a tuna based low carb wet food like Soulistic's orange or purple packets. Catnip or silvervine might inspire her, too. She may like raw egg yolks temporarily, too. Get her off whatever she was eating which may be tainted with pesticide or heavy metals. Don't give her ANY people food after this. Cat foods are specially blended to provide an exact balance of nutrients. Giving people food upsets the balance and can make her ill. Best of luck!

My cat of 11 years old has stopped eating her food, wet or human. I have been pureering her food and giving in syringes. Can I give acv to her in a syringe with chicken broth? She is getting 1/2 tsp of colloidal silver am and pm. Cat milk 2 times a day. I am just trying to keep her alive and get her better.

I had the same problem with my male 12 year old. Started giving him 1/4 t of MiraLax (I use store brand-Equate ClearLax) and so far he has been fine. I put it in a little bit of juice from canned cat food and add a little water and he laps it up and loves it.

DMSO for Sebaceous Cysts in Dogs

Sebaceous Cysts in Dogs:

About a year ago I noticed a large 1 1/2 boil on the back of my German Shepard. I tried lots of natural remedies with no success. Some time later I took her to the vet and he looked at it and then took a small lance and popped it open and out came this pimply white poop. He said it was basically a clogged oil gland, like a large pimple. He left a small hole and gave me some antibiotic ointment to inject into the hole to clear it up. I did that for a while, but it didn't work. It kept filling up, but the hole was still there. Again, I tried all my natural anti infection remedies and I have lots...nothing working worked. It kept filling up again. Then I had a flash. What's happening is the gland is clogged and coagulated. It needs something to dissolve the gook that's blocking it. DMSO I's a solvent and presto...

I squeezed out as much as I could and then I soaked a Q tip with DMSO and applied it for a few days and it completely dried it out.

Many months later, I noticed another one closer to the tail. I tried popping it, but it wouldn't budge for me. I thought maybe it's something else. Coco went for her regular vet visit and I asked him to look at it. Again he lanced and drained it. When we got home, I squeezed out what was left and again applied DMSO with a Q-Tip and then poured a little over it and again it completely dried it up.

Just to clarify, this is not the more flat fatty tumors, which are more jelly like to touch. These are like round boils, but I'm sold on the DMSO for this.

Hi there, homeopathics are very effective on animals, there are a few for pain.

The first that come to mind is arnica, and phos ferrous — this one is more for reducing inflammation, and known as an active ingredient is thought to be an excellent Mineral for redness, throbbing, and inflammation, and can also relieve headaches and fever. When my dog was in a lot of pain due to a lactating patella — I crushed the homeopathics and dissolved them in some water in a shot glass and with a syringe gave it directly to my pup. Some people just place the homeopathics right in the water, but my dog was in so much pain she wasn't drinking or eating unless I placed the food to her under her nose since she was lame. Also, have you ever considered putting your dog on a raw food diet? This is soft food and it's done changed my dog entirely. My second dog was diagnosed with liver failure and the vet told me my only option was to put him down, I took him home and changed his diet to raw food, that was 3 years ago and he is still alive.

Towel Off, Apply Apple Cider Vinegar

My senior pitbull hunts toads when he is let into my back yard in the summer and he has killed several. I used to live in great fear of him encountering toads and I constantly checked on him in the yard. Three times I have discovered him unresponsive, drooling, panting and glossy eyed while standing in the yard near a large dead toad (eeuw!) and he was apparently in great distress or going into shock. My first reaction was to grab the water hose and try to flush his tongue sideways but I quickly realized he was swallowing the poison, so I ran and grabbed a large bath towel and wet one end with water. I first used the dry end of the towel to wipe the dogs tongue from as far back of the throat possible, forward to absorb the poison. Next I soaked up saliva from both jowels with unused portions of the dry end of the towel.

I repeated this procedure but this time, with the dripping wet end of the towel.

Lastly, I turn the wet end of the towel over to the clean side and drenched it with Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar. I then slathered the tongue from the back forward and also jowels, turning the towel to unused portions for each mouth area. I repeated the procedure with an unused portion of the vinegar drenched towel but allowed some ACV to trickle down the dog's throat. By the time I finished this procedure, my dog was fully responsive each time and with no need for follow up. He is 14 years old now and he still has a high prey drive but I no longer worry as much since discovering this remedy.

Hope this helps!
