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.

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.

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.
