In case no one answers, I know of one successful method: put out some white, and only white, flat dishes on your floor at night in areas you would like. For the average living room, 3 to 5 would be good. You want them small'ish and not too deep. To the dish add water & dish soap. If you can, have some floor lamps near the water dishes. The warmth will help attract the fleas, where they jump in and are trapped by the soap. I used it in a small room so only had 2 dishes out and 1 lamp, left out overnight and there were fleas in those dishes in the morning. Also, Diamotaceous Earth is great at killing fleas! The thing is, it kills them right away on conract (by microscopically cutting them up), but they are still embedded in your pet. A good flea comb afterwards and my scamps are both good to go. Best of luck in being flea-free!!

  Essiac Tea for Pets - Help Requested

6 months ago
Posted by Sherri (Seattle) on 01/11/2024

Dear Hannah,

You can find all the answers to your questions at https://genuineessiac.com - they are the "experts" in Essiac Tea.

Their website provides clear instructions on how to give the tea to pets (e.g., syringe, in broth, etc...) and, how to brew the tea to maximize the therapeutic components.

Their tea includes all 8 herbs and does not omit sheep sorrel root (a very critical part of the tea) which other brands do not include.

As Mama to Many replied, brewed tea gives the best results.

Wishing your dog a speedy recovery.

I take about 1 tsp of D.E., lift up the dog's ear flap, put the D.E. in, put the flap back down and rub it all around. Keep fleas & ticks out! I call it "ear massage time" when I give them some, which is 2x/day. I will also rub some D.E. all over their bodies, but not every day; it can be very drying to the skin. This is not true of dogs' ears though.

Dear Hannah,

It would definitely be preferable to decoct the herbs than have her take pills. The decoction will draw out the medicinal properties that her body is not likely to draw out on her own during the process of her digestion.

You could also try using castor oil topically on the tumor.

  Essiac Tea for Pets - Help Requested

Posted by Hannah m (Houston) on 01/09/2024

Hi,

One of my dogs has a mammary tumor, she is 13 years old and dont want to put her through the removal surgery. I have read reviews on Essiac tea. I have switched her diet to protein and vegetables instead of the commercial food. My question to anyone is can I use the capsules or is it better to get the loose tea? If I use the capsules do I decoct it and boil it in water or can I just give her 2 capsules a day to her in chicken broth?

I would appreciate any help available.

I know this is an old post but I wanted to leave a reply to help others. It is really important to use organic apple cider vinegar with "mother". Ordinary apple cider vinegar is a waste of money. I would also advise using a well known brand which begins with B. You will need to google the celebrity owner and find out why its advisable to avoid.

If you mean oregano essential oil, then absolutely not.

There are some solutions for dog's ears on Amazon that say you can indeed put it down the ears and so I would try those however if your dog is having repeat infections than consider working on her gut because that's where it starts. After 7 years of trying everything but Oil of Oregano I tried a product called Glacier Peeks. They have lots of other great products. You put it in their food and it kills off the bad stuff in the gut that cause the infections in the ear in the first place.

Boric Acid for dogs

I have used boric acid on my Bichon's eyes and feet. It is wonderful for those runny eyes and is soothing. I have just recently used it on his itchy paws and so far so good. He seems to be finally at peace.

EC: Please let us know how you make a diluted solution of boric acid and water.

Sanicle will also shrink tumors. You take it orally and also topically over the tumor site. It will penetrate down and work its magic.

My cat gets ferral, so when she comes in to eat I grabbed her by the back nape of her neck and held her just long enough to put a wet tea bag across each eye just once for 2 days morning and nite when she came in to eat, the eye infection went away after two days, then I left her alone.I would boil the water then let it cool down to warm then put 2 tea bags into the warm water and then swiped each eye just once.with one tea bag on each eye.

I have been giving my dogs Ivermectin myself for years. 1/10cc per ten pounds. I buy it at feed stores. Use the hog and cattle. Never had worms much less the heart worms. A bottle is probably cheaper for a year than monthly heart worm meds.

If it were my pet, I would use a good squirt 2x/day on my pet. I would also use (at a differing time), Castor Oil Packs 3x/week (plenty of quality info on this very site) over the area, along with a few drops of Frankincense Oil. And surround your pet in your mind's eye with a green healing glow, which also helps. Thoughts are things and they're always going somewhere; so how about your pet's reality?

Remedy Help Requested for Dog After a Mini Stroke

7 months ago
Posted by Richard (United Kingdom ) on 12/27/2023

Have a 13.8 Border terrier bitch that had a mini stroke at beginning of Dec '23 and wondering how safe SERRAPEPTASE would be in strengthening her brain going forward? Vet prescribed 3 weeks of VIVITONIN (50ml) twice daily.

Reading your nine point recovery plan page I now give her 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric and cayenne pepper with her food. Going to add organic spinach to food and she is having mackerel twice a week instead of tinned meat with kibble.

Should I also add HAWTHORN & GINKO BILOBA drops daily or will these damage delicate aged blood vessels?
