Hello! I want to thank you for your post on remedies for pyometra! Our pug/Yorkie mix was diagnosed with pyometra and given only a couple of days to live without emergency surgery. Even then my vet was doubtful she would survive. I scoured the internet and found your website and gave her the exact doses recommended. I also included organic bone broth and cooked chicken with the medicine. She gobbled it right up. The other doses I would give to her I put in a syringe mixed with a little bit of bone broth to help liquefy it a bit. In 3 days she was up on her feet, eating, drinking and being her normal playful self!!! I could not believe it!! I did continue to give her the recommended doses for almost 10 days but reduced them down from 4 times a day to 3 then to once in the morning and once in the evening. Thanks again for this post. I will be sharing about my experience and about your website on my blog for sure!! Sincerely, Jessica G.

Dexter the Irish Russel got a whopping case of some sort of crud that was initially thought to be of no consequence. Then the heat and humidity of summer struck and Dex bloomed into a itchy, hairless mess. Tried Ted's mange formula when other treatments failed, and within a week he showed significant improvement. He is starting to 'pink up' where he lost his fur, and little wisps of hair are breaking out all over. I am very happy, but not nearly as happy as Dexter.

I have a 12 y/o Yorkie, about 4 1/2 pounds. Our vet suspects he has a brain tumor. He has seizures but seems to calm down with CBD oil. Would BSM help? He has not eaten in 36 hours.

I used this Apple cider vinegar on my cats and dog for fleas, but I was wondering how often I should apply it? Thank you!

Don't use the sulfur-lime with the borax. They both are applied similarly. The sulfur needs to be left on the coat to penetrate the same way the borax solution does. There may also be a problem with chemical reactions among the chemicals. You will find the borax solution to be much more pleasant to use than the sulfurated lime, which has a very pungent sulfur odor that is not easily removed by washing.

Did the Bandit Heartworm Protocol work for your dogs? Also, the Hanna's Herb Shop - Dog Heartworm Caina Philaria, what amount did you give to your dog based off the size?

Thank you!

Here is my boxer Jax., who had a bad case of mange!! I treated him with the Borax bath and switched him to a raw diet. The yellow ointment in the middle picture is NuStock..purchased from Amazon, that also helped with itching and hair growth.

Will Ted's Mange Cure Work For Lice Too?

When we adopted our dog Walter 4 years ago he came to us with Demodex mange. We used Ted's cure and it was a godsend, he got immediate relief from his itching and the mange eventually cleared up. Now a few years down the road he has come into contact with dog lice. I really don't want to use any of the chemical things suggested by the vet and I'm curious if anyone knows if this treatment would also work on dog lice?

Hi There,

I have an 18 yr old Tabby. He isn't eating much and has arthritis in his back legs. We just had him to the Vet and his blood tests were largely inconclusive. The Vet advised that he was slightly anemic which according to the Vet is not uncommon in senior cats. I am a big fan of DMSO. Is it possible to give DMSO to cats? And if the answer is "yes" could you recommend a dosage.

Many Thank, Heather

This isn't exactly in regards to cancer, but! A few years ago my feline "Baby", started losing her fur and was itching terribly. The vet ran tests and had us try various diets using very expensive foods etc., then he tried drugs like prednisone, ointments applied topically etc.. All to no avail. The poor girl never slept and cried all the time. I had recently discovered, iodine I filled a one ounce spray bottle halfway with Betadine iodine and the rest of the way with distilled water, and sprayed her all over. I didn't rub it in because her skin was raw and the poor thing cried because I'm sure it burned.

After a few minutes she calmed down and went to sleep. I got scared & thought she'd died but she was sound asleep. The next day her skin was drying up & covered with scabs. I was afraid she'd start licking herself as the Betadine contains caustic soda. so I dumped it out and made a new batch using "Lugol's" 2%" Iodine/potassium iodide in the same ratio and sprayed her lightly all over again. After a few days her fur began growing back and her problems disappeared.

I've read that when cells replicate they can become cancerous cells if there isn't any iodine within the cell. I've read that we're likely all deficient in iodine due to the toxic halogens like chlorine, bromine and fluoride which is referred to by scientists as "The Most Violent Protoplasmic poison Known To Science"! Iodine is also a halogen. The only good halogen. It's stored in the thyroid and hypothalamus glands. In the absence of dietary iodine they'll fill up with the toxic ones.

Many books on the subject are available at low cost from Amazon. Just download the free Kindle app and you can purchase & download books at low cost, many books are free. I've used a product in the past called "Soothanol" which is DMSO and it worked very well on my torn rotator cuff and my worn out knees.

I wish you luck in your quest.

Golden Developed Severe Hip Problems Immediately After Vaccination Shots

Our beautiful 5 month old Golden Retriever was a healthy pick of the liter and a very active puppy until the day she was given a 9 way shot and rabies shot that the vet told us was necessary if we needed her to be fixed later. The first day of the shot she was lethargic and could not use her front leg where the shot was administered (shoulder). Our puppy is 7 months old now and her condition has worsened and moved to the back hips. She has trouble sitting and getting up, has a hunched back and is in pain. (No other dog in the liter has any problems as we are in contact with the other six owners). We took her to the same vet today and they said it was the worse case of hip displacia they have seen for such a young dog. They denied that it could be the shots, but there is no doubt in our minds it was caused in part at least by the 10 "poisons" that were given all at the same time. We are considering putting her down as we do not want to see her in any more pain. 2 months ago she was beautiful, intelligent and very active but since that day of shots her hips are now twisted and her back is hunched. It breaks our hearts. Not sure what to do but pray.

I think that leaving dogs overnight at vets is very stressful. When my dog is sick, he just wants to be with me, quietly. To leave them alone in a strange place while they are sick, I think, would add even more stress to them and to have to sleep overnight is a very disorienting thing for a dog who should be stress free so that he can heal.

I agree that many cat kibbles cause issues! There are a few brands I am OK with but I always read the label before making a purchase - so many filler are hidden in the mix!

  Can Daily Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Prevent Cystitis?

Sun, 09 Dec 18 17:10:37 -0800
Posted by Carol (Centerton, Ar) on 12/09/2018

My cat just got over her first uti/crystals. To prevent another occurrance, I started adding 1/2 tsp. of the vinegar mixed with about 2 T. of spring water to her wet food every morning. She only eats wet food, 1/2 can morning and 1/2 can evening.

My question is: Will this daily preventative dosage do enough/any good? I mix in the extra water because she rarely drinks any from her water bowl. Does it matter if that 1/2 tsp. of the vinegar is more diluted?

I am gone from home for work 3 days per week, and my daughter “doesn't want to deal with” mixing in the vinegar. So will getting it 4 days in a row each week (when I am home) be enough for my cat?

Should I make any dosage tweaks in general? I would appreciate advice asap. Thank you all!

Hey Anne,

YES it will bleach the coat- anything with peroxide will bleach the coat. You might consider a vinegar rinse alone, or making a rinse out of borax alone, but do NOT mix the borax and the vinegar as it makes a very strong solution of peracetic acid that may be too harsh for your dog's skin.

Hey Tisha,

Borax is a type of salt. You can bathe your cat in it if you so wish. I use it all the time for bathing my dogs and they splash and my cats have walked through it without harm. I do use Ted's Borax protocol for dogs now and then and so my cats drink the same spiked water as the dogs and myself. If for some reason your cat were to ingest a goodly amount it might get loose stools; licking off the feet here or there should not do that.

I feed my cat mix of raw meat, baby food, cooked fish, I give her some spirulina and flaxseed oil tablets as well. I started rubbing my cats gums with coconut oil and I am also trying to spray her mouth with colloidal silver to her dismay as I just came back from vets routine check up and found out she has a tartar build up on her teeth and gingivitis. Vet suggested a good clean up, hopefully I will be left with some monies for christmas, lol
