I always keep high potency Apis Mellifica homeopathic remedy on hand. My daughter is allergic to bee stings.
Natural remedies for animals seem to fly in the face of those who claim they only work as placebos.
Shake some unprocessed sea salt into the pooch's water. Domestic animals are notoriously salt deficient. If you know of someone who has a pet with arthritis, you can see the benefits of the watercure immediately. Just shake some sea salt in their water dish. I don't know if it's the salt or if it is the fact that they seem to drink more water if it has a pinch of salt in it, but it works. The "placebo effect" claims so often used against natural remedies won't hold up against a dog that is cured of arthritis or a child cured of asthma.
For my Lhasa Apso, I have used sea salt, after I had used it on myself with such amazing results. My "puppy" was 16 years old and could barely move around. I simply put a little salt in her water and she immediately started drinking more water. Her water consumption had slowed way down when she started getting old.
Unfortunately, she was already well into kidney failure but she was quite perky and able to jump up on the couch and run up and down the stairs as she hadn't in quite a while. It was very strange. She was perky and happy up to the very end though she was extremely emaciated by then. I was very comforted to have made her last days so happy and active. I miss her very much.
If you check our pet testimonials On our watercure2.org site and read the home page story of how this was discovered, you will see that curing pet arthritis is not even a challenge. Just add unprocessed sea salt to its food and water and within 24 hours a pet will stand up and walk with a limp even though previously it had been unable to stand. Best of all it is free. Bob Butts
