Colloidal Silver for Pets

Jan 19, 2017

Colloidal silver is a wonderful natural remedy for a variety of conditions in dogs and cats. People have used it for themselves for a variety of ills and are finding it to be a safe, inexpensive and effective treatment for their four-legged friends as well! Colloidal Silver can be used on your pet for hot spots, rashes, skin infections, to name a few.

Colloidal Silver is a solution of tiny silver particles suspended in water. It can be bought online or at health food stores. It can also be made for pennies per quart at home! Home generators for colloidal silver can be purchased for under $100 and will make enough medicine for a household of people and pets for many, many years.

Colloidal silver has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal properties. It is a wonderful broad spectrum treatment useful for a host of conditions.

Internal Use of Colloidal Silver for Pets

Colloidal Silver can be used internally for pets and is easy to administer. It is tasteless. It can be added to a pet's water bowl, mixed with his food, or given with a syringe. For best results, when treating an acute condition, colloidal silver should be given 2-3 times a day. Large animals can take 2-3 tablespoons several times a day. Small animals can take 2-3 teaspoons several times a day. If a pet is not responding as you would expect, you can increase the dose. There is a wide range of ppm (parts per million) of colloidal silver solutions. If you buy a product, you can follow package directions and dilute to about 20 ppm. If you are making it yourself, aim for a final solution that is between 15-30 ppm.

External Use of Colloidal Silver for Pets

Colloidal Silver is also a great topical treatment for a variety of conditions in pets. It can be used in a spray or dropper bottle.

Colloidal silver spray is useful for: 

  • Rashes
  • Hot Spots
  • Burns
  • Infections
  • Eczema
  • Ringworm

Ideally, affected skin would be sprayed 3-4 times a day.

Colloidal Silver in an eye dropper bottle is useful for:

  • Conjunctivitis (drop a few drops in each eye twice a day for two days)
  • Ear infections (one dropper full into each ear, twice a day for a week)

Advantages to colloidal silver as an external treatment:

  • It is safe for a pet to ingest if he licks it
  • It won't be painful to a pet when it is applied
  • It won't stain furniture in your house

I noticed my miniature border collie's gums were bleeding. I swabbed his mouth with a cotton ball and was shocked as to how much blood was on the swab. I began researching natural remedies. I didn't have in house some of the things required so I thought of what I did have available. I started swabbing his gums and teeth with colloidal silver and then followed it with coconut oil. Two days later no blood and his teeth appeared more white and gums looked healthier.

I love this stuff. My friend makes it so her ppm varies. Depending on whether she remembers she is making it. It is usually 30 ppm.

My dog was sick unto death, really. He would not eat or drink and had a fever. I had no idea what was wrong with him and was not able to get anything in him to treat him. I took him to the vet who diagnosed Erlichia (tick born disease) via labwork. He spend the night at the vet to get IV fluids. He took Doxycycline for 3 weeks and was back to himself after a week or so. A couple of weeks after he finished his anti-biotic his symptoms began to return. Low energy and appetite, feverish. I knew the Erlichia had returned, or more likely, had not been completely eradicated, as is common in tick borne diseases.

I tried Colloidal Silver. I gave him about 1/4 cup of a high ppm silver (I think it was about 80ppm.) in his water at least two times a day. He was completely back to normal in a few days. I kept him on that for a couple of weeks. (Longer would probably be good but I get lax when healing has occurred.)

For the record, this is a large dog, about 115 pounds. But I really didn't think I could over do it, and I didn't want to "underdo" it.

I have my own Colloidal Silver generator and use the silver for pets and people. It is absolutely worth the investment.

I have been using colloidal silver now for years on my pets, my children, my grandchildren, my spouse, my friends and myself. It is the best natural antibiotic out there and can be used topically and internally.

I have older pets (17 and 18). My cat is very susceptible to UTI's and the silver is the only thing that seems to clear it up. The nice thing is that it doesn't wipe out the beneficial bacteria! There have been reports of silver "building up" in the system, however this has never been shown to be toxic. I even got my Naturopathic vet prescribing it to her "fur" clients. It has been used for hundreds if not thousands of years, however with the pharmaceutical companies shunning anything natural because of big $$$$$$ it was put on the back shelf.

For people with children, don't forget-----babies get drops of it put in their eyes at birth! I would also suggest 1/4 teaspoon 3 times a day. I fill a small syringe and administer directly into the mouth. 10ppm or 20ppm seems to work well.
