Absolutely LOVE this site. So much appreciate all of the postings from which I've saved many thousands of dollars in veterinary fees. In addition to farm animals, I have 8 dogs and 7 cats so I'm always turning to this site for help with natural remedies.
Some time ago, one of my Guinea Hens was seriously injured and developed Gangrene in the wound on her leg. I like to try to save my animals rather than put them down, so I found the recipe on Earth Clinic for the Activated Charcoal Poultice and used it. She recovered from the Gangrene and although she had a limp, she lived a good life. I've since used it for other wounds on my animals to successfully prevent Gangrene. Activated Charcoal is a staple I would never be without. Hope this helps someone else to save the life of their pet or farm animal.
