Treating Chronic Ear Infections In Dogs | Great Pyranees

Recurrent inflammation of the dog’s middle ear commonly results in an infection caused by bacteria. Great Pyraness, and long-eared breeds such as the are especially prone to this painful, chronic condition. Cats are also prone to inflammation of the middle ear. Symptoms Of Chronic Ear Infections Symptoms include pain when opening the mouth, reluctance to chew. Bad odor, with redness, brown discharge and heat. Shaking the head. Crying when ear is touched or rubbed. Pawing at ear, tilting the head, leaning to the side of the affected ear, and an appearance of be off balance. Both ears may be affected by inflammation, which can result in wide swinging movements of the head, wobbly uncoordinated body movement, and deafness. Additional symptoms may include vomiting and nausea, unequally sized pupils, redness of the ears, discharge from the ears, a grey bulging eardrum (known as tympanic membrane), and in severe cases, signs associated with nervous system damage such as facial nerve damage (e.g. inability to blink, or paralysis Causes Bacteria is the primary cause of infection. Other causes may be yeasts, fungus or mites. Food allergies can also cause this chronic problem. Many dogs are becoming allergic to grains including soy, wheat, and corn. GMO’s are becoming an increasing problem. If you rule out all of the above, other causes could include physical trauma, tumors or polyps, or the presence of foreign objects in the ear. Treatment Of Chronic Ear Infection I’ve tried many types of treatment, and by far the absolute best result has been with Zymox Plus Otic-HC Enzymatic Ear Care Solution. Zymox is naturally antibacterial and antifungal. The difference... read more

Make Your Own Colloidal Nano Silver | The Best Silver Generator

  When you figure the cost of good quality colloidal silver, and factor in the health benefits of taking colloidal silver, it makes the sense to make your own. I have used colloidal silver on myself, and animals for about 12 years. There are many myths concerning taking colloidal silver; the biggest one is you will turn blue. This is simply not true with high-quality colloidal silver. The people who have turned blue from the silver oxidizing in their system, did not use the correct water to make their silver. It is imperative that you use distilled water. How To Make Your Own Colloidal Silver There are many kinds of generators in all price ranges. I’ve researched many different types, and concluded that for the price, Atlasnova makes a good quality, easy to use generator. The Atlasnova Colloidal Silver Generator AC was designed and manufactured in USA, fully assembled and tested. The generator includes 2 pieces of 4-inch 12 gauge Pure 9999 Silver Wire, and uses a universal power supply! Everything is ready to go! The generator will enable you to make up to 16 ounces of purest colloidal silver in 4 to 5 hours. Instructions on how to make colloidal silver using Atlasnova Colloidal Silver Generator are included. There are generators that will produce colloidal silver faster, with higher voltage, but slower is better. A batch that takes 4-5 hours will produce smaller nano particles, and lighter colored nano silver. Generators that produce it faster will result in larger particles, which is not good. Generators that use 3 – 9 volts batteries, or a 27 volt adapter, are not ideal... read more

Remedy For Rattlesnake Bite On Dog

  I‘ve been meaning to share this information for some time, but now that one of my barn cats got snake bit again, I decided to post the remedy I have used several times with success. The animal I’m dealing with was barely grazed in the paw, and is not in serious condition. However, I’ve dealt with five gruesome bites, and I do not believe they would have survived with conventional treatment alone. The treatment I detail below is for dogs, however I’ve also listed what I did for snake bit cats. What To Do When Your Dog Gets Snake Bit A few years ago, my border collie got bit in the front leg while we were horseback, about to pen cattle. It was just me and my husband, and we were short handed. About a 1/2 mile from the house my dog started limping badly. I got off and saw a massive bite. This was a BIG snakebite in a bad area, high on the foreleg. Dogs rarely survive a bad bite to the leg. My dog barely made it back to the house. I had to carry her to last stretch, and she weights about 45 lbs. Rattlesnake Bite Remedy The life-saving remedy I used is a combination of conventional, and natural medicine. This combination compliments each other amazingly well. Immediately, I gave my dog 3 Benadryl pills, 9cc dexamethasone, and 5cc penicillin. The next step is the key to preventing tissue necrosis. If you’ve ever been around an animal that’s been bit by a rattler, then you know they smell like road kill due to the... read more

Peptic Ulcers In Horses & Humans | Causes, Symptoms, Cure

H. pylori Bacteria And Peptic Ulcers If you or your horse are having symptoms of peptic ulcer, it’s probable H. pylori bacteria is the cause. It has been discovered that 90% of peptic ulcers are caused by the dangerous and resilient bacteria. H. pylori can survive in the stomach for long periods without being killed off by stomach acid and is often contracted during childhood. In adulthood, as the stomach lining is weakened due to illness, stress, lack of sleep and excessive alcohol consumption, the H pylori bacteria is able to attack the cells more aggressively. Then, stomach ulcers begin to form in the wall lining. What Causes Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori) Bacteria? The house fly is the most common carrier for the ulcer bacteria which explains why so many horses, especially those confined to stables, suffer from ulcers. I’ve known a few ranchers and horse show people who suffer from ulcers. Click here to learn more about the H pylori bacteria/fly connection. H. pylori Symptoms & Cures H. pylori bacteria can be killed permanently. The standard doctor issued protocol is course after course of antibiotics. Antibiotics are completely ineffective, and only offer temporary symptom relief. Ten years ago when I had symptoms of peptic ulcers, I got immediate relief with Mastic Gum, a resin harvested in Greece from Mastic trees. Typically, 3 grams a day is effective for permanent elimination of this debilitating, chronic condition. I took mastic gum everyday for over a month and never had a recurrence of symptoms. H. pylori leads to a whole host of other problems other than gastric ulcers. Click here to read... read more

Six Weeks With Ollie

Six Weeks With Ollie begins with Grace, the great horned owl who has nested in an old hay barn on the ranch for the last six to seven years. In February, 2012, Grace nested atop a bale of alfalfa, and Ollie hatched on March 7th. Grace was used to us coming and going in the barn, so she did not seem to mind my short daily visits with Ollie. Ollie grew like a weed, and at six weeks of age, fledged the nest. Ollie stayed close to the barn the first ten days after fledging. After that, we spotted Ollie and Grace a few times throughout the summer. We wouldn’t see Grace again until the next nesting season. Ollie was on his own. Life is... read more

How To Naturally Remove Retained Placenta In Mare

Retained fetal placenta is a common, extremely serious postpartum problem in mares. The condition describes the failure to pass all, or part, of the placenta after foaling. When managed correctly it is unlikely to have any serious consequences. However, there are complications that may result in future breeding problems, lameness or even death if not correctly resolved. Ideally, the mare should pass, or expel the placenta about 15 minutes to one hour after foaling.  If more than 4-6 hours have passed, then the mare should be treated as an emergency. The Dangers Of Retained Placenta Most cases of retained placenta are non problematic. Occasionally, other problems can develop such as: metritis, septicaemia, laminitis, breeding problems or even death. Left untreated the uterus can accumulate bacteria and toxins. Not only does the retained placenta allow a pathway for bacteria to enter, but the tissue breakdown (or autolysis) provides a great medium for bacterial growth. The resulting inflammation within the uterus leads to an increase in blood flow which allows toxins to be easily absorbed. This type of absorption may potentially lead to septicaemia. It is a very serious condition. You can act before it comes an emergency by doing the steps listed below. How To Treat A Retained Placenta Naturally The goal is to efficiently treat a retained placenta without force, and to prevent further complications as described above. So, whatever you do, DO NOT PULL THE PLACENTA! First, tie, not cut, any placenta hanging below the hocks. The extra weight is needed, so whatever you do, don’t cut. The most effective removal is done with slow, steady, gentle traction.... read more

Easy, Inexpensive Daily Detox | Diatomaceous Earth, Bentonite Clay

Daily Parasitic, Chemical & Heavy Metal Detox This is a quick post on how you can do an effective, daily detox without any bad side effects, and without much expense. Super easy, and super effective. All you do is add a heaping teaspoon of food grade diatomaceous earth to a tall glass of water. Then, add a splash of Great Plains Bentonite Clay, and a squeeze of fresh lemon*. This little jewel of a concoction does amazing things. How Does It Work Diatomaceous earth is the powdered, fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. It is mildly abrasive, and without going into a huge, long post, it has a TON of health benefits. DE has a mineral content of approximately 85% amorphous silica and approximately 20 trace minerals.  DE kills parasites, flushes toxins and heavy metals, and even relieves arthritis! Diatomaceous Earth has a negative charge, and bacteria has a positive charge. It is reported that Diatomaceous Earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in its honeycomb shaped skeletal form. Cleanse and detox from the inside out! Best part is it has no taste! It’s a powder that does not dissolve, so it’s a little gritty. Great Plains Bentonite Clay comes in an easy to use liquid form. Bentonite clay carries a strong negative ionic charge. It’s a magnetic clay that can absorb up to 6 times it’s weight. It absorbs and carries toxins out of the system. Many animals in the wild ingest clay when they are sick. Peruvian wild Macaws eat poisonous fruits at certain times of the year, when no other fruits are... read more

Equine Sarcoid Removal | Black Salve

This is going to be a short and sweet post on equine sarcoid removal. DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT surgically remove sarcoids. If you have them surgically removed, be prepared to repeat the process over and over, again. I cannot over emphasize this enough. Every single cell must be removed, and cutting actually spreads sarcoids. The sarcoid root and cells must be drawn from the area. There is a fast, effective, non-surgical way to remove them. What Are Equine Sarcoid Tumors They are viral in nature, and the most mis-managed problem for horses and their owners. Sarcoid tumors can render an otherwise sound horse unusable. It is the most frequently diagnosed tumor in horses.  Sarcoids occur at any age but are more common in young adult horses.  These tumors may be single or multiple and, although they occur most frequently on the head, limbs and abdomen, they can occur anywhere on the body including sites of trauma and healed wounds. Sarcoids come in all shapes and sizes, but are categorized in six different types. Fortunately, I’ve not had to deal with many sarcoids, but my gelding got one a few years ago on his side right about where the stirrup leather hangs, and the bloodroot salve got rid of it permanently. My horse has not had any recurrence with sarcoids. How To Permanently Remove Sarcoid Tumors There is an ingredient specific black salve made with bloodroot that effectively removes all traces of sarcoids. There are many black salves available, however, to be effective, they must contain 4-5 key ingredients including Bloodroot (Sanguinaria Canadensis), Zinc Chloride, Chaparral, and... read more

Proof Ear Candling Works | Ear Coning

Proof Ear Candling Works Despite all the naysayers on the internet, my husband and I are proof ear candling, or coning, works. The reason I know this is a couple years ago, I was getting most of my horseback riding done in the evening when it was cooler. What does this have to do with ear candling? Well, in addition to being cooler, there were many more insects flying around in the evening, and when you’re traveling horseback at a fairly good speed, you are likely to be struck by, inhale, or swallow an insect. I had never considered one getting in my ear. Severe Ear Ache Relieved By Ear Candling After one of the evenings horseback riding, I developed a bad earache. It got much worse within two days. At that point, the earache was deep, and several glands in my neck were swollen. I had candled my, and my husband’s ears a couple times a year, so I decided to candle my ear. Now, here’s the proof candling works. You’re not going to believe what was in the burnt candle! A firefly, aka lightening bug! Yes, I cut the burnt remains of the candle and saw a perfectly preserved lightening bug! So there ya go. I don’t care what the experts say. People have been doing it for hundreds of years, and there’s a reason for it. It works. How does it work? I’m not sure, but reverse osmosis is my guess. Placebo Effect, Or Real Benefit From Ear Candling Dogs don’t respond to placebo, so in addition to the proof described above, I don’t believe the... read more

Rife Frequency Generator | Staph Infection In Joint of Filly

How To Treat Joint Infection With Rife Frequency Generator | Experimental Use Only Now you can see why the filly got hurt in the first place. Hehe. She got hurt during a rain storm in her fetlock (rear ankle). The filly was very lame, and after giving her penicillin, and doing an ichthammol draw, the swelling and lameness was getting only slightly better. The wound was very small, but her fetlock joint was warm and swollen. After a few days of minimal improvement, we took the filly to the vet for an Xray, and possible joint infection. The vet flushed the joint, and took a culture; it was determined there were no chips, or major damage other than a very serious potential infection. The culture came back positive for Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, which can become resistant to antibiotic therapy. The veterinarian prescribed Excede® antibiotic for the joint infection, and released the filly. She was due to take another round of Excede® four days later. However, after being released from the clinic, the filly got worse each day for four days. On the forth day, when she was really sick and lame, I pulled out the Rife machine. Hello, why didn’t I think of that earlier? Just months prior, I had treated my border collie for either Lyme disease, or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, one of the two, but that’s for another post. The filly improved immediately after using the Rife machine! Rife Treatment Time And Frequencies The filly was confined to a small area between two gates where I was able to apply the rife machine pads to her... read more
