Apple Cider Vinegar for Cats

Lynne (Everett, Massachusetts) on 05/30/2023

I've worked in feline rescue for many many years I'm certified as an animal behaviorist and I'm certified and trained for feline emergency health and wellness I'm not a vet but seeing it all and seeing how it had been treated I myself personally try to go the holistic route first I don't like putting drugs into my body so why would I put them into my pets always try holistic first. Some cases cannot be treated holistic and you need to use medication do not be afraid to ask questions and ask you about to explain things a little bit more if you do not understand you are paying for their service do not be afraid to call and ask questions also FYI when I was doing my schooling we were trained on how to make you spend more money at your vet's office a little FYI into the animal world so please do not be afraid to ask questions

Re: Manuka Honey, Turmeric, Vitamin C for Open Pyometra

Anthony A (Illinois) on 05/29/2023

I have the exact same scenario as yours (type of dog, age, doctor solutions, costs - everything as the story you told). We watched the video and are trying the remedies suggested. She seems to be doing better than before. It's been 6 days since we've found out.

Because we had to wait for the remedies to be shipped from Amazon and or purchased from other stores, I tried the best available option I had. I used Emergen-C. I mixed it up and gave about 225 mg of the 1000 mg in a packet each day. I think she has done better with Vitamin C. The first day we took her to the vet her tongue was gray. The last few days her tongue has turned more pink.

Today is the first day she's tried the concoction mentioned on the posted video. She can barely stand on her own and can basically only pee (not poop yet) and lift her head up. She only eats boiled chicken and we've given her CORE water because it has electrolytes. I hope it works - God willing!

I use Colloid Silver in a dropper for my cat with herpes in his eyes & it works a treat. It does not sting etc. It really is brilliant for keeping it at bay, as you know there isnt a cure, it lays dormant in body till something flares it up which can be stress, heatwave, strong sunshine & damp

Re: Severe Itching and Allergies in Bull Terrier After First Vaccination

Deirdre (Earth Clinic) on 05/26/2023

Hi Jeanette,

I had a dog (he passed last summer) who had very similar issues. I believe the issues started up after a groomer knicked him in several places and he got a terrible skin infection after that which took months to heal. Then the ear infections, flaking skin, itchy skin, hot spots, fur loss, aural hematomas, and etc., started up after that. However, thankfully he 95% improved on a freeze-dried raw food diet. He was a golden retriever/chow+++mix.

I fed him the brand Small Batch freeze-dried in rotation (chicken for a couple of days, then beef, then turkey). You can look Small Batch dog food up on Amazon to see what they have. Stella & Chewy's is another brand but he didn't like the taste of that one when he got older.

Because he also had a VERY sensitive stomach, I had to include a bit of grain-free turkey kibble in each meal to stop his IBS and subsequent diarrhea.

The other thing that really helped him was 1-2 tablespoons of 20 ppm colloidal silver daily. That stopped the constant flaking skin issue and inflamed ears. I do think the shots and pills the vet gave him made the situation much worse. And the vaccinations, no doubt. It took three days on the freeze-dried rfd to see a change.

So sorry for what your sweet girl is going through.

Severe Itching and Allergies in Bull Terrier After First Vaccination

Jeanette T. (St. Stephen NB Canada) on 05/26/2023

Help for our sweet girl

We have an English Bull Terrier that is now 20 months old, since 12 weeks old 3 weeks after first vaccination she broke out with hot spots, spots on her face, lips and inside her mouth, swollen, hair loss, incredibly itchy, especially the face. She was so itchy she actually took the the whiskers off her face. So when taking her to the vets without any testing they said she needed to be put on these injections or steroid medications for the rest of her life, to which I refused to believe. So I started researching myself and found a product called neem tablets and neem oil for dogs for her outside and began giving these to her among omega oil, vitamin C, kelp, pre/probiotics, diatomaceous earth and a supplement called NuVet. We have had different forms of allergy testing done. One was hair and saliva from Glacier Peaks and the other NMT from our homeopathic vet/regular Veterinarian. He thinks her immune system is not working properly(which worries me that something was in the vaccination) but we also tried Thuja.

She is on a raw food diet as when we got her she was eating kibble and not sure if that was the problem and researching Bull Terriers seems to do al lot better on raw diets. So with doing all this she nearly healed but it took a long time. Then because she was still slightly itchy and still getting ear infections (which are chronic) our vet wanted to try a low carb kibble...and against my better judgment or gut feeling we tried it and well she has broken out again, but just her head, face and ears this time, we are back to trying to get her healed again as we had to stop all things when she got real sick from that change.

I know I may have to accept defeat and do meds but I really am hoping someone can help as doing research it says that if you do not address what the underlying issue is she will not get better. Our Cheeka is the sweetest Bully ever and doesn't deserve this. I am so hoping to do this naturally and hope maybe someone can help. I have been told about urine therapy but I have no idea how I would capture her pee and it will be packed with goodness and possibly cure her so that is something we are thinking about. Anyways thank you ? if I could I would attach pictures but I am not sure how to on here.

It?s Not Pet Food, It?s a Waste Disposal System

June 3,2018 in Pet Food Ingredients
Susan Thixton
...The FDA openly admits these types of animal feed/pet feed ingredients are illegal ? remain illegal. But the agency makes it clear they are CHOOSING not to enforce law. The agency is CHOOSING to allow pets to consume diseased animal material, CHOOSING to allow pets to consume decomposing, dead, non-slaughtered animal material.
The agency is CHOOSING to allow the pet feed industry to profit from the sale of illegal ingredients. And significantly ? illegal ingredients are allowed by FDA with no disclosure on the pet food label. No warning to any consumer.
...FDA?s own testing found dog foods to contain pentobarbital ? a drug used to euthanize animals (can?t get more toxic than that).

Horrifying ? Laboratory Animals rendered into Pet Food

The rendering of laboratory test animals into pet food ingredients is simply unacceptable. Untested drugs, euthanasia drugs, and various species of test animals, all to possibly become part of a family pet?s food, is inexcusable.

The carcasses of these test animals and the drugs and chemicals within them should never become rendered into pet food.

Please look at the label of your pet?s food and treats for the ingredients ?animal fat?, ?by-product meal?, ?meat and bone meal?, ?meat meal? (not ?chicken meal? or ?turkey meal? or any other specific named meat meal), and ?Animal Digest?; feeding your pet a food or treat with these ingredients could mean you are feeding the remains of a laboratory test animal and the drugs within that animal.

Unfortunately, many Rx pet foods designed to treat a pet illness contain some of these ingredients.

Re: Dog With Throat Tumor - Need Suggestions, Please

Kris Lubeley (Colorado) on 05/23/2023

Hi Cheryl, look in to Colloidal Silver, you can rub on, and also give to her internally, which would be the best way to have it be effective on a tumor in the throat. There is a facebook group "Colloidal Silver for Pets", lots of excellent information on how to treat pets, and dosage information. You could ask questions on there also. One of my dogs had a large growth on the inside of his mouth, on the top gum line. I sprayed Colloidal Silver 10ppm on that growth a couple times a day, for several weeks. It completely disappeared, in fact he was scheduled to have surgery to remove it, and I happily was able to cancel the surgery. You couldn't even see where it had been, it was completely gone, just healthy gum showing! Wishing you the best for your baby!

My cocker/Maltese mix had an oral tumor, malignant. They wanted to do deforming oral/nasal surgery. I declined. Put him on large doses of Vitamin C - to bowel tolerance, and pancreatic enzymes. His tumor went away completely and he lived another 5 years.

Remedies for Itchy Cat

Rob (Saint Louis, Missouri) on 05/22/2023

Itchy Cat With Mange, Tried Everything!!! Works For Dogs Too. What I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me...

Almost two years ago one of my cats named River started itching and licking his fur off. River itched most the fur off his back, sides and tail area leaving a bunch of pimple, rashy looking bumps. I tried a number of home remedies like Apple Cider Vinegar, Epsom Salt Soaks, Ted's Borax & Peroxide Mange Treatment, Rubbing Him Down With DMSO and Hydrogen Peroxide. After months of these with no relief, Finally out of desperation, against my better judgement I took him to the vet and got steroids, topical mite medicine, a mild tranquilizer to check for a nervous problem and antibiotics for a bacterial infection which all did no good. They wanted me to buy a $180.00 small sack of idk protine extracted cat food because he may food allergies. By this time I realized I was on a thousands of dollars roller coaster on an endless path to no where with these people..... Where they go home with the money and I go home with the pain.

So, I came home and tried even more home remedies like Kitty Vitamins, Magnesium, Digestive Enzimes, Probiotics, Prebiotics, Iodine, Stinging Nettle, High Dose Vitamin C, L-Histidine and changed food brands three times.

I believe I tried enough to say I tried EVERYTHING!!

Around this time I was learning about JADAM Organic Pesticides. YT DIY Ultra-Powerful Natural Germicide JADAM Sulfur(JS) 10L for Gardeners. Homemade pesticide. I gave him a warm soak on diluted Jadam Sulfur, about 3/4 cup per gallon. This helped but didn't solve the problem.

You can buy Lime Sulfur Dip in the market.

Next I washed River down several times with Chlorine Dioxide. You can find out more about Chlorine Dioxide at

More internet research led me to Happy Horse Medicated 2% Chlorhexidine Horse Shampoo which is safe for cats. This also helped but several applications did not solve the problem.

Next I found, Veterinary Formula Clinical Care Antiseptic & Antifungal Shampoo. Again several applications of this helped but did not solve the problem.

Since they both helped a little, I thought to apply the 2% Chlorhexidine Horse Shampoo one day and the Veterinary Formula Clinical Care Antiseptic & Antifungal Shampoo the next day and finally found relief. Today is the first day I haven't heard the dreaded hind leg itch in several years.

I've known for years that my cats had ear problems because of the black goo and one cat kinda clear discharge from his ear and eyes. I thought they had ear mites and treated them with Olive Oil, 50% DMSO, and Chlorine Dioxide with some sucess but it never resolved the problem. I watched a video called Dog Yeast Ear Infections: Great OTC Home Remedy on the YT channel Veterinary Secrets and learned most ear infections in dogs and cats are actually not mites but yeast. I treated all the cats with Clotrimazole, once a day, which is safe cats and they all feel better.

So, I believe River may have had multiple fungal infections, including a yeast infection on his skin and ears which took several medications to resolve.

I found this helpful article in the Merck Veterinary Manual, called Dermatophytosis in Dogs and Cats (Ringworm). I originally ignored information about ringworm because he didn't have large open sores, just pimple like small sores.

I hope this can save many who read it a lot of time and money.

Thanks for reading. Happy health to you and all our furry friends.

Thank you Dan. How much did your pup weigh and how many drops of the milk thistle did you give them. I am trying this combination now along with a low carb dog food by Dr Harveys called Paradym and my Jack Russell mix is starting to do better.

Safe tick removal on pets

Wild oil of oregano is what we use on our dogs to remove ticks. It is a great anti viral as well. I put two drops of the oil directly on the tick and next morning you will find it dead in the bedding. Then I put colloidal silver on bite wound.

Re: Female Dog With Open Wound That Won’t Heal - Need Help

Dora (Fox, Arkansas ) on 05/22/2023

Slippery elm tree powder by itself if the wound is moist as it will stick to it quite quickly and follow up by mixing Slippery elm powder mixed with organic coconut. Mix 1 tbsp of slippery elm powder with pure organic cold expressed coconut oil until it creates a smooth easily malleable cream/paste. Will not harm if ingested. Is a heal all combination.

Essiac Tea for Dog's Tumor Did Not Help

Andrew (New York) on 05/15/2023
2 out of 5 stars

Based on the reviews here we had high hopes for this for our cat?s oral carcinoma. Unfortunately, it appears to have had no positive effect whatsoever. We started the tea by syringe 10 days before we received the biopsy results, based on his drooling and not wanting to eat, but he still declined rapidly and five days later (15 days in total) he was so physically debilitated and seemed to be in so much pain that we made the (obvious but no less heartbreaking) decision to euthanize him. Sadly, a cat homeopath we spoke to during that time said she?d tried essiac tea more than 10 times with tumorous cats and had never seen evidence of its effectiveness. It probably doesn?t hurt to try it if you have no other options, though not expecting a miracle might make it easier to countenance eventual loss if that sadly comes to pass.

Blackstrap Molasses for Canine Arthritis

Heather (Canandaigua, NY) on 05/15/2023
5 out of 5 stars

We have a 15 year old Lhasa Poo named Sofie. On good days she will still zoom around like a puppy but those good days were becoming fewer and farther between. Arthritis was setting in and you could clearly see it in her back legs, esp. She has a 4 year old lab/boxer sister and they sleep together on a giant bed in our living room. Over the past several weeks her sister would bound up in the mornings, raring to go outside, while Sofie would either continue to sleep or try to get up painfully slow, and collapse back down on the bed. She was also having issues walking up and down the stairs so we started carrying her on the really bad days.

I wanted to improve her quality of life, if I could, and I always check EC first. I am a nurse but a deep believer in holistic health and have tried other remedies from EC that have always worked. Thankfully I already had a tub of black strap on hand so I started mixing a tsp into her wet food, twice daily, along with kibble and water. She gobbles it up. I completely forgot to mention this to my husband. 2 days later he said to me, "Honey, you should have seen Sofie this morning. She was up and running around before Luna even woke up! She ran down the stairs and up again, came in the house and started doing zoomies! " I just grinned and shared with him what I had been giving her. It's been almost a week and she's still energetic, moving well and doesn't seem to be in pain. I'm so thankful! Now I'm off to try some remedies for her cataracts. If we can get that reversed then we'll have given her the fountain of youth.

Thank you so much, EC!
