Colloidal silver powder dosage for cats and dogs.

Hi, I have colloidal silver powder and was wondering how can I give this to my pets, as it's not in liquid form? This is the only brand available.

Thank you so much for your help and support. This boy is my world. ♥️ We will continue on our protocol and am hoping for the best. We will retest in 4-7 weeks and when I get the results will report back. Thank you again for your support, it means so much. 🙏

Dear Dog Lover,

That is very happy news!

Astragalus is a great idea. I use that in people for tickborne diseases.

I would probably do a full week of the full dose, then the smaller maintenance dose for several weeks. You are very attentive, and I am sure you will notice changes in your dog's behavior that would indicate a need to increase the dose.

Thanks for sharing your experience and protocol. It will help others in the future!

Erlichia (Tick Disease)

Thank you so much! I have been giving him 1/2 cup of 10 ppm colloidal silver a day via syringe and he takes it like a champ. I have been dividing it into 3-4 doses per day. He is 9 years old. He is also getting Astragulas Complex. This is our 3rd day of the Colloidal Silver. He is eating well, active and wants to go on his walks. He still limps slightly when he gets up from sleeping but other than that the limp seems much less. How long would you think he should stay on the 1/2 cup daily dose of 10 ppm before dropping to the 2-4 tablespoons once a day?

Dear DogLover,

My dog was a similar size to yours. I was using 1/4 cup of 80 pmm silver in his water twice daily for Erlichia.

So that would end up being a cup of 20 ppm twice a day? Sounds like a lot...

I was making my own colloidal silver too. But I am guessing on the concentration. (Not a totally blind guess, but it might have been less.)

Plus, my dog didn't drink all of his water.

If your dog will take it in a syringe, you can get it into him more often.

Could you try a Tablespoon of your 20 ppm every hour during waking hours? And if that doesn't seem to be doing the trick, increase the amount?

My feeling was that I really couldn't overdose my dog on colloidal silver, but I could underdose...

Please let us know how it goes.

Erlichia and Colloidal Silver

My 110 lb dog has Erlichia. I want to treat with colloidal silver via syringe. He is very easy to give things to via syringe into the mouth. Has anyone treated this size a dog successfully and with what dosage of 10 ppm? I have my own generator and could make 20 ppm if needed. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

My mistake. I thought Sugee was the originator of the remedy, but now I see that it was MtM who originated the remedy. Here is what she said about it:

>>> ' 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. ~Mama to Many~ ' <<<

So that is the remedy.

Can you describe which colloidal silver you used and what strength, how you administered it and what dose you used and how often you used it? It would also be helpful if you told how long it took to work. Thank you!

Thank you for this wonderful review. I tried everything to kill a nasty URI my cat had including Vet prescribed antibiotics and home prescribed ACV. AVC worked for my other cats who had the URI but not my little girl. It was getting serious and I was getting really worried. Then I remembered my friend gave me a bottle of homemade CS and I rushed to look it up and I found this review. I blended some tuna and CS and she ate it up. I then gave her a rub down with it. She was clearly much much better in 24 hours. She is with me now, napping on a heated blanket. I research further; I contact my friend who gave me the bottle and that led me to buy my own CS generator. I am positive that this is a God driven cure and health enhancing remedy. I truly believe that with just ACV and CS in your pantry, you and your pets can extend your lives by many years.

Feline Calicivirus Infection
Posted by Janine (United Kingdom) on 11/03/2021

Hi there, I rescued my female cat who has what we thought was gingivitis. She's just had tests and it turns out she has calicivirus. The vet wants to try Interferon or tooth extraction. I'm obviously very concerned about this.

I've read some of your very helpful posts regarding colloidal silver but I have a few questions. Would a teaspoon/5ml 3 x a day of sovereign silver be my best option? Is sovereign silver the brand name? I think I've found it on Amazon. Is it 100% safe? Ideally I'd like to find someone who can advise me in the UK because I'm so worried about harming her.

I would really appreciate any guidance on this. Thank you in advance, Janine

Lung Issues
Posted by Pro (Wisconsin) on 08/11/2021

I will try not to get too technical and keep my response as simple as possible. When using a nebulizer, you want to use ionic silver. Ionic silver particles are safe for lung intake. The smaller particles disperse into the lungs more effectively and then throughout the body via the bloodstream. Colloidal silver is needed for ingestion because the larger particle size won't break down or combine with the salts in the stomach resulting in a useless, ineffective dose. I have used both forms topically.

My regimen has reversed the onset of colon cancer for me. And has reversed a cancerous tumor in a friend's lung. His Doctors are still amazed that he has no other issues for these last 7 years now. He does "maintenance doses" to ward off any recurrences. Keep in mind that cancer can't survive in an alkaline environment, but thrives in an acidic one; so I have also changed my diet to reflect that to better assist me. After any silver ingestion, one must supplement with pre/probiotics to rebuild the gut flora properly. I have many more examples too long to write about here. I have been an avid user of silver for over 25 years now, with nothing but positive results for me, and others in my life willing to try same regimens.

My 5lb daschihuahua developed swelling to her lacrimal gland (teardrops) one day. I got my sprayer full of colloidal silver (10ppm) and sprayed it 3x. We went about our business and 10 mins later it was gone. I also used this sprayer for my cat's eyes if I noticed a tear trail. He takes 3 sprays directly in his face because he knew it would be good for him. They both drank it freely, too. Animals know it's good for them!

The smaller ionic silver is harsher (more toxic) on normal cells than colloidal silver and with a lung infection, I would prefer to be less harsh on the healthy cells so if it were my dog, I would prefer to use the yellow colloidal silver. A nebulizer delivers significantly less silver in a given period of time than an ultrasonic humidifier and if a dog's lungs are anything like human lungs, they have a very large surface area. Human lungs have a surface area roughly equivalent to a tennis court, so delivering enough silver is very important because in order for silver to neutralize pathogens, the silver particle must come in contact with the pathogen or extremely close to it.


Feline Calicivirus
Posted by Griselda H. (Spain) on 07/13/2019

Hi My adored 6 year old female cat has just been diagnosed with calici virus but it is a strain that attacks the gums causing chronic very painful gingivitis til all the teeth have fallen out over years or the vet takes them all out (except the canines). But colloidal silver must destroy this virus surely!! I have bought some at 20 ppm as I see is correct for cats and I give her a tsp 3x a day . But I've read that different brands have sizes of particles and also to actually completely get rid of this virus how much should she safely have? I am also giving her plant sterols , homeopathic golden seal at 200ch and calici virus 36. But would echinacea be better instead of the goldenseal Ive read they shouldn't be taken together. How much echinacea and in which form? I will also give her vit c, q10 and pycknogenol. Thank you helping to save this desperate though far from fatal situation.

I can't get an answer, so what I do is make it 50/50 mix 50% ionic and 50% true colloidal, that is where after a batch is made, you put one drop in the Finish patch and let the spinner go for 30 minutes ,then you'll have your 50-50 mix. I guess you could say it's the best of both worlds, but in the instruction manual it tells you how to do the 50/50 mix,

good luck.

Lung Issues
Posted by Joseph (Dublin, Ohio) on 01/13/2019

I just bought a silver lung generator, they say it's the best, it makes both ionic silver and true colloidal silver and makes it at 20 parts per million, I have been researching the heck out of colloidal silver could someone help me out here. Some say that the ionic silver has smaller particles and is better for a noob Eliezer or Mist machine because of small parts can get into the lungs better, others say use the true colloidal silver, the pale yellow looking kind is supposed to be better but bigger particles so I am totally lost here.

My dog has a lung infection and I do not know what to put in the nebulizer, the ionic silver with smaller particles or supposedly the better one true colloidal silver with bigger particles can someone please answer my question if they know it's been driving me crazy, also I would like to add I think this is an awesome website very helpful, thank you.

Colloidal silver is such a great pet remedy. It is tasteless and easy to dose. And it has so many applications.

I don't recall if I reported a success with a young kitten of ours. She wasn't feeling well. We gave her several doses of colloidal silver and she was fine within 36 hours.

My husband noticed that our Great Pyrenees seemed lethargic. I immediately began to add large amounts of colloidal silver to his water. He was himself in 36 hours.

Pets cant tell us their tummy hurts or they have a headache. It can be hard to know what is going on. Colloidal silver fights all sorts of infections, viruses, etc.

Colloidal silver : I used it for ear infection (3 drops from dropper) and kennel cough (5ml). Used it twice a day for 10 days. Worked like a charm & I didn't have to worry about my dog taking pharmaceutical meds with all the side effects nor the exorbitant cost the vet tried to charge me.

Colloidal silver/apple cider vinegar for Herpes Virus (Chronic Upper Respiratory infection, IBD)

My cat has (had) many issues. Deemed "unadoptable" (special needs) she was in a no kill shelter for approx. 5 years. She is 8 years old. After many vet visits and hours of research online to find cures or treatment for her, I thought why not check out colloidal silver as I have used it for years on myself. I am always extremely careful with administering anything to my baby girl as she is extremely sensitive.

Her chronic Upper respiratory infection (Herpes virus) caused weekly mucous discharge from her nasal passage and a discharge from her left eye. The mucous discharge was so large and thick (size of a USB stick) she was clearly uncomfortable. She was exhibiting weekly symptoms of her URI. We knew this was the deal if we purchased her- she was after all a sick cat.

So after much research and many impressive reviews I administered one dropper of S------n Colloidal Silver around the edge of her wet food so she would lick it up. She did. After 10 days her symptoms plus crazy discharge disappeared. COMPLETELY! I was annoyed with myself I didn't try it earlier. She is spritely and chatty again. She looks like a different cat! She looks normal! My husband can't believe its the same animal. I use common sense when giving her any medication and start off slow. Even her chronic yeast infection in her ears have seemed to clear through the silver in her food. It's a remarkable difference. I also spray it on her hot spots!

I give her two nuggets of food drenched in a 50/50 mix of Apple cider vinegar mixed with water whenever she looks a bit lethargic or off color. Within a day or two she is happy again. I find these two products not negotiable in her kitty medicine cabinet. No more pharmaceuticals unless absolutely necessary. I will shout about it from the rooftops-its that good! Good luck! :) AMAZING STUFF!

My daughter noticed that one of our four month old kittens was eating grass (though it is fed plenty) and was acting quite lethargic. I wasn't sure what was wrong. The kitten's brother and our other 5 cats are all fine. The easiest thing to do was use a couple of broad spectrum natural remedies. I gave the kitten 2 droppersful of colloidal silver, internally. (Very easy to dose as it tastes nearly like water.) Then I rubbed several drops of a 50% solution of apple cider vinegar into the back of her neck. (Her fur is so silky I had to rub it in! ) I repeated this again 12 hours later.

Now the kitten appears fine.

Perhaps nothing was wrong. Perhaps it was a tummy ache. Perhaps some infection was brewing. But there is no harm in being proactive with simple to dose and safe remedies like ACV and colloidal silver.

Colloidal Silver

Please stop giving your pets Anti-biotics. Colloidal Silver (10 ppm strength) DOES the SAME & it's 10000000% SAFE!!!! It treats & fights more than 650 pathogens. It is an incredibly powerful antimicrobial. You can find it at most Super Markets (especially the health food ones), even Walgreen's (if you're in a hurry, start with that BUT for longer use I'd rather you get the best brand 'Sovereign Silver') I get mine from Sprout's (The Sovereign Silver). Silver is both effective and safe to use against bacteria, fungi and viruses because it suffocates the undesirable microbes (under 6 mins) without harming the living tissue of the animal. It doesn't interfere or cause adverse reactions with other medicine. It's TOTALLY SAFE!!!

Colloidal silver for dogs is most often used in treating skin, hot spots and ear infections as well as bacteria and viral infections. Colloidal silver for cats is most often used for treating UTI (urinary tract infections), feline herpes and rodent ulcers.

Colloidal silver for pets is also used in the treatment of many other illnesses including thyroid issues, yeast infections, tummy aches and can even help with eliminating parasites.

Colloidal silver works by surrounding the pathogen or bacteria and suffocating it, killing its ability to replicate.

Colloidal silver is safe in higher doses. It is not dose specific, which means it can be given in larger doses for more difficult health issues without any harmful side effects.

I see many sites online recommend 3-5 drops with meals. That is not really enough to address chronic health concerns. My opinion is that many people who are advertising ways to use colloidal silver do not have all the facts or have not actually used it on pets or themselves.


· Infections of all types

Colloidal silver is an all-around cure – good for treating bacterial, yeast and fungal infections, and viruses of all types (even parvo). It is the best all-around medicine for pets to have on hand for any disease. CS can be given as a natural preventative whenever exposure to illness or diseased animals is entirely unavoidable.

· Skin

Apply colloidal silver topically for skin problems. Good for almost any kind of skin infection, including ringworm, cuts, bites, wounds and even burns. CS helps to repair tissue damage and soothes the skin.

· Ears

Dogs with chronic ear infections - good news! Colloidal silver helps clear yeast and remove goop and odor from smelly ears. Use an oral syringeful directly into the ears to help kill yeast and bacteria.

· Eyes

CS treats many types of eye problems including pink eye, allergies, infections, inflammation and tear-staining. Since it does not burn or sting, it can be put directly into the eyes without bothering the pet too much.

· Immune Booster

Colloidal silver is a wonderful holistic pet care immune system booster. It can it be used to treat a number of immune issues and just to keep low-lying pathogens out of the system. It can treat respiratory issues as well, such as asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia, using a nebulizer.

Works wonders for the following:

· Helps Heal All Types of Infections; Bacterial, Fungal, Parasitic or Viral

· Removes Plaque From Teeth With Regular Use

· Helps Heal Burns, Treating Wounds, Cuts and Scrapes

· Improve Eye Issues – Doesn't Sting or Burn

· Reduces Inflammation in Certain Cases

· Boosts Healing, Stimulates Immune System

· Protects against Pathogens

· Improves Overall Well-Being

Many people and pets have seen improvements with:

· Breakouts

· Sore Throat, Colds and Flu

· Oozing Sores

· Cystitis

· Diarrhea

· Eye and Ear Infections

· Some Types of Tumours

· Reducing Ulcers

· Cancer

· Wounds

· Help Prevent UTI --->> (It also cures it)

· Hotspots

· Feline Herpes (certain types of human herpes as well)

· Ringworm

· Candida

· Toe Nail Fungus

· Yeast Infections

The smaller the particle size of the CS is, the greater its surface area and the higher its efficiency. That's why even a concentration of 20 ppm is still much more effective than other brands which contain up to 500 ppm!


For Maintenance: Once daily

Immune-Building: 2-3 times daily.

Treating a Specific Health Condition: up to 5 times daily.

Short Term Acute Support: up to 7 times daily.

Below are some guidelines for amounts to give for treating any kind of health condition; however, colloidal silver is not dose specific. (Some other information on the internet seems to make you think it is.) When your pet is dealing with an acute condition they can have much higher doses of the silver for short term help in curing something specific, with no ill effects.

· Small Dogs, Cats:

o 2 lbs to 10 lbs - 1 tsp - or half of 10ml syringe two to three times a day for 2 weeks or more

o 11 lbs to 25 lbs - 1 1/3 tsp

· Medium Size Dogs:

o 26 lbs to 40 lbs - 2 tsp or 10 ml (one syringe) two to three times a day for 2 weeks or more

o 41 lbs to 55 lbs - 2 1/2 tsp

· Large Size Dogs:

o 56 lbs to 80 lbs - 3 tsp, two to three times a day for 2 weeks or more

o 81 lbs to 100 lbs - 3 1/2 tsp, two to three times a day for 2 weeks or more

o 101 lbs to 150 lbs - 4 tsp, two to three times a day for for 2 weeks or more

o 151 lbs to 200+ lbs - 4 tsp, (2 syringes full) two to three times a day for for 2 weeks or more

This has been known to save the lives of many pets and people who are susceptible to viruses. Even those as dangerous as parvo and all chronic low-grade inflections can be greatly disempowered by this powerful preventive, nutritive, inexpensive health supplement.

It has been proven impossible for single-celled organisms to actually mutate into silver resistant forms, as happens with allopathic antibiotics and antivirals. This is great news as it means that no tolerance to colloidal silver ever develops.

Another great point about colloidal silver is that it cannot interact or interfere with other medicine being taken, and it has no side effects.

Inside the body, silver does not create any type of toxic build up, nor does it react with anything other than a pathogen's oxygen metabolization.

Colloidal Silver is a truly safe, natural remedy for many of your pet's health concerns.

Bleeding Gums

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.

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.
