Re: Can You Catch Mange From A Dog?

ryan (New York) on 03/27/2024

Incorrect... Sarcoptic mites include many subtypes and all are zoonotic. You can in fact, not only catch it from your dog, but also give it to your dog, or any other pets you may have...

Castor Oil for Dental Issues in Cat

Faith (USA) on 03/27/2024
5 out of 5 stars

My cat who has had teeth pulled a few years ago, recently started scratching the top of his head, his ear, under his chin and both side of his neck. Thinking it might be his teeth, I have an upcoming appoint with a vet to check out his teeth. Thinking it might be ears, I've been giving him Zymox (old vet script that still works) in his ears and his ears look better. I've been watching him closely, he's eating, urinating and pooping. Meanwhile, I've been recently learning about Castor Oil. (Ok for dogs and cats via Dr. Jones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzO41qmAsTM ) I slathered it on him, which he didn't like, but he loved the rubdown. Well, here we are a few days later and I've only seen him scratch once and the scratched areas are looking better. I was afraid to put the oil on him daily, as he was licking it off, but I decided to put some on again today. Also, fyi, although he was still eating before, he was sleeping most of the time and the second day after the first application, he was up, eating like a king and wanted to be on our laps on the couch. I got the organic cold pressed oil through W-M and I'm really liking this stuff. I will update as things progress.

Essiac Tea for Cats

Jan (Lancashire) on 03/26/2024

I know essiac tea should be given on an empty stomach but my elderly cats stress out when I try & give remedies that way. So is it still possible & ok - to add a little to their food? Thank you.

Re: Trader Joe's Cat Food Causing Issues

Mia (USA) on 03/25/2024

I only feed my cat a tiny bit of dry food as a treat. Mostly, she gets canned wet food, with an ounce of water added at each feeding because she doesn't drink water from a bowl. Cats evolved out of Egypt (the desert), they are accustomed to getting their water in their food (since prey is 70% or more water). If cats don't take in enough water, they will develop renal (kidney) failure. Dry food is only 10% moisture. A steady diet of dry food will harm cats' kidneys, and can lead to chronic renal failure.

Cat Ascites: Diagnosis and Remedy Help Needed

Cindy (Illinois, USA) on 03/24/2024

If I don't know what or why, I just use activated charcoal. No need to worry about what the problem is.

One thing you can do is make a no-seeum mesh bag and put a piece of "cut-to-size" charcoal furnace filter or carbon weld cloth in it for them to lay on. If it begins to stink, discard and make a fresh one.

As long as the charcoal has trapping power, it won't stink. When it's trapped all it can hold, you'll be able to smell it. It will still draw, but it won't be able to trap what it draws. And you don't want that nasty stuff floating around so, when it stinks, lay it out in the sun to oxidize for a day before you put it in the garbage.

Thank you for your post, I think it only took two days for my border collie female to have a complete lift as well, it's almost like this underlying problem has always been there and now that it's finally being addressed almost overnight she's much shinier and obviously much more interactive and engaged...looking good, fingers crossed!

Cat Ascites: Diagnosis and Remedy Help Needed

Rob (Kentucky) on 03/23/2024

Try this for your kitty ascites:

Materials needed:

– ½ teaspoon activated charcoal powder. Charcoal has the capability of adsorbing thousands of substances to its surface, giving it the reputable title of “universal antidote.” One of activated charcoal’s benefits is that it has the ability to block the absorption of harmful and hazardous compounds into the body while simultaneously absorbing and ridding the body of dangerous elements that were already present.

(if you can’t find it in powder form, the fish aquarium activated charcoal sold in the fish/pet supply dept at walmart will work, just grind it in a mortor and pestal til fine powder)

– 8 oz clean water

– Baby medicine syringe

Method:

Add ½ teaspoon activated charcoal to water and stir.

Load the medicine syringe with the resulting “slurry water” and force it down the kitty's throat. Do this until the kitty can’t do anymore. The kitty should take at least 5 – 10ml. Repeat every 2-3 hours.

If the charcoal has no effect, switch to colloidal silver 10ppm.

Good luck...

Cat Ascites: Diagnosis and Remedy Help Needed

Rose (Australia) on 03/23/2024

Does anyone have any cures for cat ascites or something to help ease the discomfort? My kitty has it bad and the vet is stumped what could be causing it ( it's not FIP or FIV and they can't find any cancer or heart issues, they did multiple scans, x rays and ultrasounds which just seems to have made her worse) and he can't drain any fluids for a few days until he's back in the clinic. She has trouble walking and doesn't want to eat. Any ideas what it could be or what to do for her discomfort? Any emergency treatments to help a cat that unwell?

Turmeric for Fluid-Filled Cyst on Dog

Myra (California) on 03/20/2024

Oh my, my 14-year-old Shepdrd mix has had a softball-size cyst on his right shoulder for years. Something happened last Friday night. He hurt and could barely walk, so I came to see what I could do. I started putting turmeric in his food twice daily (1 tsp) each, then backed off to 1/2 tsp. It's been four days, and today, it exploded. Wow, but I think we are onto healing. He can already walk better.

A breeder and dog show handler recommended starting with one tablespoon of Apple Cider vinegar and working up to 2 tablespoons of Apple cider vinegar in our dogs water bowl. My holistic doctor also recommended using it for myself.

Brand of Aloe Vera Juice Safe for Cats?

Eve (Toronto, Canada) on 03/09/2024

The vet said that my cat has the potential to have CRF. I want to buy aloe juice for him but the organic one from Lily of Desert has organic lemon juice concentrate and I know that citrus is toxin to cats. The one from George's isn't organic and it just shows from aloe vera leave on the bottle without mention which part of the leave. The juice from Lakewood has organic lemon juice concentrate too.

I don't know what to do now, any suggestion please? Thanks!

Re: Baking Soda and Maple Syrup Treatment

Adrienne (ID) on 03/07/2024

Which would be better, Apple Cider Vinegar and molasses or Apple Cider Vinegar and maple sugar? Seems sugar, even maple sugar, would not be good for a dog with cancer.

Activated Charcoal in Food for Dog With Allergies

Kay (Redstone, Colorado) on 03/06/2024

Activated charcoal given with food

I am presently giving my Aussie activated charcoal with her food to absorb histamines so I don't have to give her drugs from the vet. This is working and helping to eliminate her itching. I prefer to give the charcoal in her food rather than her water bowl because she gets it in her rather than some separated charcoal in the bottom of her water bowl. However, does giving a dog the charcoal regularly (every day both meals) absorb the nutrients in the food or is this sustainable? Thank you.

I am lost when you say un-petroleum jelly. What is this made of? The health food stores here have not heard of this product.

Manuka Honey + DE for Pet Infections

Katzie (Cancun, Mexico) on 03/02/2024
5 out of 5 stars

My poor puppy looked like she was growing gills on one side of her face. It was a skin infection and was large. It looked as if it was about to eat her face. The area was very sore as she got very defensive of it. To bring it to the surface of the skin I put some Diamotaceous Earth on it, which was very successful. Once I could see where exactly it was, I was able to use my trusted Manuka Honey on it. Within 12 hrs (overnight) the infection was gone and she was healing! She looked so much happier and had no problem with mama putting more honey on the area. Manuka, ya came thru again!! Manuka & D.E. cured her infection and for a total cost of a couple of bucks! I love Earth Clinic! Other people would've had to pay alot for a vet, then the medication, and then wait for days to see the medication doing anything. I think my way was both less expensive and more effective, as well as very quick ta boot!!
