Fast!! Manuka honey works just like antibiotics but only in strong strength:

First I must thank the writer and all the feedbacks on this post, without all the positive feedbacks here I might not have tried this natural remedy.

My female dachshund is 14 years old and she was spayed at young age. She had Open Pyo 3 years ago with clear bacteria discharge, my vet did a surgery to remove excessive remnents inside her belly. But last year, the discharge came back, it was never serious, discharge was clear, no foul smell, and dog seemed happy and normal. Culture was done and due to the old age, we tried to cure her with antibiotics. She had antibiotics for 6 months, condition got better but the infection/discharge only reduced but never completely eliminated. Vet said it was not healthy to take anymore antibiotics and she recommended surgery to open up and clear up the infection again.

That was the time I did research online and I came across this post. I went to buy UMF15+ Manuka Honey, Tumeric, and Vitamin C tablets. I fed my dog based on the dosage recommended on this post. A week had passed and no improvement. So I decided to go ahead with the surgery. Luckily the surgery went well, ANY remaining female organs (that were carrying the pus) were removed. No more discharge for 2 months.

But last week discharge came back!! It was quite a lot with slight brown tint color. I thought how could that happen when there was only very minimal organ left?? It's Chinese New Year holiday in my country and my vet is on leave. My dog would have to wait 5 days before my vet could see me. So I decided to try Manuka Honey again, at least for these few days hoping the infection wouldn't get worse before the holiday ends.

So I went to buy UMF 20+ Manuka Honey this time (yeah expensive). My dog weighs around 10 lbs, I feed her around 1/3 teaspoon each time, 3 times a day, also 1/2 tablet of 1000mg Vitamin C two times a day. Then miracle happened!! After 3 days, all discharge were cleared!!! Wow the effect was so fast it was just like antibiotic - except it was all natural! It was even better than antibiotics as she had them for 6 months and they didn't clear up the infection. Now I cancelled my vet appointment and I'll keep feeding her the same dosage until the entire 500g bottle of manuka honey is finished. Then maybe I'll just feed her 1/3 teaspoon once each day thereafter.

So why didn't it work the first time?? Well, to get fast and significant medical result, I think you really need UMF20+ strength, made in New Zealand (I heard Australian made is less effective) ones. Lower strength might still do the work but it may take longer time so you may end up with similar cost and your dog will suffer longer. Don't buy the brand "Manuka Doctor" as I read on amazon their strength/rating is NOT UMF/MGO official ratings which is very misleading. Buy a brand that is licensed in New Zealand, you can search the brand here to find out if it's a legitimate honey farm.

And if the infection is serious such as a close Pyo then you better go see a doctor immediately.

Hello Buramiko,

I find your post confusing. Pyometra is an infection of the uterus. If your dog was spayed 14 years ago, it means she has had no uterus for 14 years. No uterus = no uterine infection; no open pyo no closed pyo - it is impossible. I am most curious as to what condition your dog had/has, and am glad the manuka honey has helped her.

Hi Theresa, apparently according to both of my vets (last year and 3 years ago) pyo on desexed female dogs is possible because desex surgeries do remove ovaries and uterus but not the little portion of cervical where the urethra opening is. That little portion is the place where infection happens and carrying the pus. That's why the infection on my dog isn't serious.

Hey Buramiko,

Ahh - thank you for the clarification. I think this is a syntax issue/miscommunication. Your dog did not and cannot have pyometra, which is specifically a uterine infection, because your dog does not have a uterus. Your dog apparently has been dealing with a vaginal infection, of which your dog still possesses. While I think Manuka honey is a wonderful remedy, you might find more immediate and effective relief for your dog's vaginal infection by douching with a solution of betadine. You would use a syringe [remove the hypodermic needle to use] and mix up betadine with warm water - dilute until it is the color of tea, and use that to flush the vagina. Flushing the vagina with a weak vinegar solution will also be helpful in this case as well.

Pyometra? I have a 3 year old Maltese that whelped a week ago. 3-5 weeks into her pregnancy she started showing a dark discharge. She delivered normally without complications and is entering 3rd week of nursing and still has a discharge. No fever, no distention, no change in personality or appetite.The discharge is not profuse but is concerning. I am considering treating her with the turmeric, vitamin C and Mauka but am concerned about the effect it will have on her nursing young. Feedback anyone?

My 5 pound, 17 year old poodle has open pyometra that is draining. She is eating and drinking very little. Her vet says surgery is not an option due to her age. How much and how often should I give her Manuka honey, turmeric and vit. C. She is also constipated, pure pumkin is not helping her. Thank you for any suggestions.

Yes, ordinary honey is fine if your dog can tolerate it. I tried this on my sister's dog but she does not like it, she pukes the liquid out even if I dilute it with water or mix it with milk. If you can find royal jelly in your area, it works as well and you will see fast results. Royal jelly and vitamin c cured my sister's dog in a matter of seven days.

Hi Ms. Lani,

What brand of vitamin c did you use? I'm currently giving my dog a vitamin c from pet store (pet express) it's in liquid form and an immune booster as per box. Do I still need to change her vitamin c? or I can still continue the one that I bought from the store? Last year, my dog was diagnosed with pyometra and was advised by her vet to take an antibiotic for 2 months. And currently, she's ok now but her vet advice us to continue monitor her since there's a possibility that my dog will experience it again unless she'll go to surgery. So I started giving her manuka and vitamin c for these past few weeks and hopefully it would help her. thank you for all the stories I've read in this site which is so encouraging.

Thank you so much! My English bulldog was sick and I didn't realize it (we were in the middle of moving, and had just arrived to our new home states away). I though maybe she was just depressed because she is an older girl at almost 10. She had just finished her cycle 2 weeks prior. I noticed she was drinking a lot and then started to have a weird colored bloody discharge. I had no idea what was wrong! I knew I could not afford $1200 for a surgery and did not want to put her through that right now, but wanted her to be well at the same time. I payed in her crate with her all night searching for answers and I knew when I saw the symptoms that's what she had.

Thankfully I ran across your site and first thing when the health food store opened I bought her the highest quality of this combination I could find! I gave her 5 doses today along with some arnica pills, and she is sleeping soundly after eating a whole bowl of dog food. I can tell she already feels better and very little discharge. I kept her clean all night (it bothered her to be bleeding and tried to clean herself) she is too thick to lick herself so I cleaned her with a warm cloth and kept clean towels under her. I found administering the meds in a piece of turkey was perfect! She swollowed it right down! I'm so amazed how this works! Thank you for saving my Lucy girl!

She is to old for surgery so I am hoping to use manuka honey, tumerik and vitamin c but I am not sure how much to give her. Bear's weight is 80 lbs, she just started her heat cycle today. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Method of Delivery,

For my dog I had great success mixing turmeric, powdered vitamin C, and some Ceylon cinnamon with extra virgin olive oil. Then mixing Manuka honey with that on a saucer. After dabbing my fingers for her to lick, the saucer was cleaned willingly.

Hey Kember,

Pyometra is a really serious and life threatening condition, and a closed pyo is a painful condition. One thing to do is to take your dog's temperature - normal temp is about 101 degrees F, so if you see 102 or higher your dog is running a fever. Temps of 105 or higher are life threatening and can result in brain damage, orgain failure and death. If you think your dog is suffering from a closed pyo consider contacting one of these organizations for possible financial assistance or surrender:

My dog has been ill. I spent thousands at the vets for no answer. Was sent home with an antibiotic & it helped her almost instantly. Now a month later she has been sick again. Losing weight, not eating, discharge, diarrhea. I'm thinking it's pyometra. I bought the items listed except I can't find powdered vitamin c so I bought chewable vitamin c tablets & a pill crushed. Will this be fine? She's 14 lbs, 8 year old. How much of each should I use? I can't get manuka honey until pay day Friday so I bought raw unfiltered organic honey for now.

My dog is 16yrs old poodle mix, who has pyometra. My vet advised she needs a very expensive surgery or she would need to be put to sleep. I started with the treatment today and she is doing a little bit better, however, I am concern because she has had no discharge. Is this normal? What happens with the pus?

Vitamin C, Turmeric, Manuka Honey
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 07/27/2017

Hey Letty,

In a closed pyo, the pus gets resorbed into the body, and the toxins get filtered out by the kidneys. It is possible for the cervix to open and the pus to drain so keep a close eye on the situation. A closed pyo is a painful condition - imagine your uterus filling up light a tight balloon. If this were my dog I would monitor her temperature very closely - temps over 105 degrees can result in brain damage and seizures. Please report back!

I took my rescue Chihuahua into the vets office as they provide pedicure service. They brought Lily out after her pedicure and said she felt warm and commented that her belly was big. She told me that she should come in to be spayed, I didn't even realize she wasn't as she is a rescue. She is an older dog, around eight years old. They scared the hell out of me, quoted me a price for the procedure and warned me that it would turn into an emergency that would be even more expensive and I would be faced with having to put her down. She has been fine, she has more energy than my other dogs combined, she has a fantastic appetite, no discharge or discomfort and is as happy as can be, so this from the vet today was shocking! I came home and did some research and found this site. I'm going to give 500 vitamin c daily as a precaution.

Manuka Honey, Turmeric and Vitamin C for Open Pyometra

Last night around 9 our Bulldog started to bleed but not the typical way she would she she would go into heat. In fact her last heat was only 8 weeks ago. We took her into the 24 hrs emergency as it was starting to get out of control quite rapidly and I could tell by feeling her ears that she had a fever. Throughout all this she acted like the same old Molly!

Anyways, after our meeting with the turns out it is Pyometra. Now, with our dog, we cannot have her go surgery (or she would have been spayed LONGG ago)

She has too many health concerns already and specialists fear that she would die on the table from lack of oxygen due to her small trachea, large tongue and jaw issues.

We came home with 14 days of antibiotics and then came across your site-THANK YOU! I went and bough everything needed to concoct this paste and have administered it 3 times already today. She is having much less fluid today and the foul odor has left..thank goodness.

Fingers crossed this is not where her story ends! She is a true fighter and we will fight for her! Thank you for this forum...It has been extremely helpful!

Pyometra: I want to thank you for this site, I used vitamin c, turmeric, manuka honey and kefir. The infection has slowed down and my dog has begun to come back to life, she had a coughing, sneezing, gaggin and runny nose, she has gotten much better over 9 days, I also checked her breathing and at rest now it is 28 breaths per minute. Thanks for the wonderful helpful advice

I started Storm on this regiment along with ensure because she started to become anemic. It's been 24 hours and she is still panting heavily. The discharge has stopped, but she is growing weak. How long did the concoction take effect? I can't give up on her. Please advise. Thanks.

Please take Storm to your vet ASAP. I have had two girls with pyos - one with an open pyo would have done well with this remedy but I did not know about it and had her spayed, with much regret. The other had a closed pyo, her temp continued to rise to 105, she was panting heavily and in PAIN. Take Storm's temp - if it is 105 or over you are risking brain and organ damage. If this were my dog and she was getting weak and in pain and the remedy was not bringing results in a timely manner I would see the vet and bite the bullet and use the big pharma antibiotics to save her life while waiting on the manuka remedy to work.

Just to let you know, my dog never panted at all, I caught the infection quick and I used the most powerful vitamin c out there. I used the camu powder and used 1 tsp twice a day, my dog used to cough, gag, sneeze and runny nose and I was told by one vet she had heart disease, since giving her this treatment she has pretty much back to normal, her eating habits our back and lately doing a lot of barking and playing with her sister, she is going to maintanence doses as she is too old to be spayed as she is 13.

Hello Krystal! So glad your dog is doing better. AND so glad I came across your RECENT post. My 45 pound dog has been ill for 2 weeks...she's been tested for a UTI, IMMUNE DISEASE, STOMACH ULCER etc... and none of my vets (1 holistic and 1 traditional) have been able to figure this out. My dog has all of the symptoms of OPEN PYOMETRA, has no appetite, no energy, drinks a ton of water, has the pus discharge, pale gums and has lost 10 pounds. I just started the manuka honey + tumeric + vitamin C concoction. She's had it 2 times now, and I've only noticed that her gums are gaining color again.

I'd love to get some feedback from you.

1) what "MFG" of manuka honey did you get?
2) did you dog eat within the first 1 or 2 treatments?
3) When did her full appetite and personality return to normal?

I adopted my Ginger from a shelter and they thought she was already spayed, as has all the symptoms of Pyometra, she also has many cysts growing under the skin. I called the vet he confirmed her systoms and they scheduled her for emergency surgery in two day when they reopen after the holiday, I'm so relieved to find this information and started her on this remedy just now. If this helps I can cancel her estimated $2000 - $3000 emergency which I can't afford and schedule her non emergency spaying at a later time.

I wonder if this remedy will shrink or dissolve her cysts. Does anyone have any imput on this?

Hi Sandi! Thank you for your info and great post. I'm pretty certain my dog is suffering from open pyometra...even though my vets have tested her for everything else under the sun with no answers. So...I've just started the manuka honey + tumeric + vitamin C concoction and I'm wondering what level "MFG" of manuka honey you used. I purchased the "MFG 400" and wonder if I should give my dog a little less because of its potency. Also, when did you start to see improvement. My dog has all the symptoms (not eating, drinking tons of water, no energy, losing weight, pus discharge, pale gums etc.) . She has had 2 concoctions so far...and I've only noticed the color of the discharge improve...and the pinkness return back to her gums. (still not interested in food though). Hope your pooch is doing great now, and look forward to your feedback. THANKS!

Hey Cheryl, If there is drainage then it is an open pyo - it may not be a misdiagnosis, it might be that the remedy worked to open the cervix to allow for drainage. I have experienced two pyos - one open where the only symptom was a picky appetite and then the funky drainage, and a closed where my girl was not feeling well with a rising temp and abdominal pain. In both cases the vet advised to spay, and in the first case I was so confused I took their advise; in hind sight I believe this was unnecessary and that other approaches could have saved the uterus. In the second case it was a no brainer - dog in serious pain with rising temp, and I did the spay - no regrets. In my area the emergency spay was $1,200.00 - so your 3-5K quote sounds ridiculously excessive. Because pyos are linked to heat cycles/waxing and waning hormone levels, if Pepper makes a full recovery she will still be prone to a pyo down the road; you may wish to have her spayed once she is clearly out of the woods as a non-emergency spay should be considerably less expensive. Please keep us posted on Pepper's recovery!

Hi Theresa,

I'm also in Minnesota and contacted Blue Pearl who gave the 3 - 5K estimate for surgery. As I understood from our vet, the University and Blue Pearl are the only two vet clinics who perform the emergency Pyometra surgery. Is that right?

Hey Cheryl,

I had both of my girls who had pyo's done at Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital. Blue Pearl looks like an emergency / specialty [$$$$] and the U of M is just plain $$$$. You do pay extra for the extra care and antibiotics needed for a pyo, but if your girl is on the mend and not in crisis then you should be able to schedule an appointment during regular hours and avoid the excessive emergency fee.

Hi I just realised nobody replied to your post there, I hope that you were able to go down another route other than having your dog put down?

My girl is a Presa Canario and weighs in at 140LBS (65kg)and has just turned 4 when she got Pyometra 4 weeks after her cycle last year it was extremely scary as she is normally such a strong and healthy dog. I feed her a raw diet of beef, chicken, lamb, heart, kidneys and bones and she is really well exercised. I first noticed the odd bit of discharge from her that was a milky/bloody consistency I thought at first it was just her expelling the rest of her heat, but then I noticed over a couple of days that she was expelling more and more and that she was suddenly drinking a LOT of water like every 30mins, she was restless and off her food. I took her to the vet he took her Temp and it was high he suspected Pyometra as her abdomen was firm although in a large muscular dog it is hard to tell that. He prescribed strong oral antibiotics but she point bank refused to take them I had to dissolve and syringe them in to her but still she wasn't taking them all, I went back to vet after 2 days as the discharge was immense literally draining out of her, he gave her injections of antibiotics and vitamins for 5 days and then more oral antibiotics for a week. I took her temp everyday and it was normal after the first 2 days of injections, all we could do after that was wait for the infection to drain out of her I believe she had 10lbs of it in her and in total it took 2 weeks for it to all come away. She did not eat ANYTHING for 9 days which in a big dog she could cope with as long as she was drinking but in a small dog it would be a real worry.

My vet told me after that I needed to get her spayed as it could come back each year but I haven't as she is such a big dog it would be a HUGE operation, so now she is back in heat and I am looking for all the help I can get to prevent it from happening again, I put Cider vinegar in her food and I am going to start giving her a couple of spoonfuls of Manuka, I always have it in anyway as it is great for cuts and bites etc, I have never given her Vit C so advice on dosage and how to administer would be great!

Any help is appreciated especially from Large Breed dog owners, If it happens again I want to be super prepared, as soon as her heat finishes I will check her temp as that is a sure fire way to see if there is an infection developing.

Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 01/06/2017

Hey Caroline, My only advise along with monitoring the temp is to feed foods with infection fighting properties. Oil of Oregano, kelp, turmeric come to mind, along with the high doses of vitamin C, and also colloidal silver. IMHO the time to really watch for problems is 3-4 weeks after the cycle ends. Good luck and please keep us posted!

Hi Caroline!

You may give your dog up to 3,000 mg. of vitamin C per day. But considering that she is not yet sick, I think that 2,000 mg. of Vitamin C per day will be fine. You can give 1,000 mg. in the morning and 1,000 mg. in the evening. Put the vitamin c between slices of meat and feed it to her. Since pyometra occurs about 2-8 weeks after the dog's heat then you can prevent it from happening just by giving your dog 2,000 mg. vitamin C per day one week after her heat. Just to build up her immune system against any bacteria that may have gained entry in her uterus. You may continue giving her the vitamin c continuously for at least two weeks. That will ensure that any bacteria present will be adequately killed by her immune system. I do that now with my older female dogs since two of them got pyometra months ago. Back then I merely used the vitamin C treatment to cure them. So far, pyometra has not reoccured in any of my dogs and hey, one of them is now 14 years old, still active, and I'm hoping that she'll live to a ripe old age... Hope your dog stays well!

Hi guys I need your help..

I have a 2 yrs old pekingenese who was just diagnosed with an open pyometra. Her vet strongly suggested an immediate operation however I don't have that much money. Right now my dog is already active and her appetite is back but the vet told me that if I don't put her to surgery as soon as possible she might suffer more in the near future.

I read this post while searching for alternative treatment for my dog, I would like to try giving her Vitamin C, turmeric and honey but I don't know how much should I give her. My dog is only 3.2kilos (7.05lbs)

Also for the vitamin C, what specific type should I look for? Can an organic honey be a substitute for manuka honey? I live here in the Philippines so Manuka honey is really hard to find.

I hope you can help me...

Thank you and God bless :)

Hi Lani,

Thank you so much for reply to my post, it means a lot for me and my dog. My dog was just discharged yesterday 01/10/17 from the vet hospital. She is now eating well and already active, however she drinks and pees alot and I can still observe the white pus discharge.

Today is my day 1 of vitamin C treatment, I gave her a total of 3,393mg of sodium ascorbate plus a teaspoon of turmeric. I tried giving her turmeric paste but she strongly disliked it, I tried to add honey but still she's having a hard time swallowing it. Can you give me a tip on how to administer it without that much of a struggle.

BTW her vet prescribed me the ff:

2ml of oral antibiotic syrup (2x a day)

1inch of Nutripet high-energy concentrate gel

2 tablespoon of dextrose powder (dilute in her water)

On top of this I'm giving her the 3,393mg of sodium ascorbate plus a teaspoon of turmeric. I'm afraid of overdosing my dog with a lot of medication, so I want to hear your opinion about it. Is it too much or not?

Hi Springflames!

Try to put the turmeric powder in between slices of your dog's favorite meat. Hopefully she will gobble up the meat fast enough without noticing the powder. If she chews on her food then that may pose a problem because she will be able to taste the turmeric. Alternatively, you may mix the turmeric powder with your dog's favorite liquid drink and administer it to her using a syringe.

Regarding your other question, I am not competent to assess whether the medications you are giving are already too much. I am not a veterinarian. It is worth to note, however that your vet prescribed the medications based on what he has been taught in veterinary school.

All I can relate to you is my own personal experience regarding the use of vitamin c for my dogs and also what I have researched regarding the matter. I was able to cure the pyometra of 2 of my dogs using only vitamin c. I never used any antibiotic back then. Not even turmeric. Just my dog's favorite cooked meat. Also, I noticed that healing was faster when the vitamin c was mixed with milk as well.

Again, good luck to you and your dog. Sana gumaling ang aso mo.
