I recall you a few years ago I wasn’t 100% sold on Colloidal Silver. I will have to admit after tons of research I would say, it’s ok. I’m the type that will do a lot of reading before adding anything to my diet or my dogs. CS is not FDA approved but a lot of FDA’s so call approval meds are all CRAP anyway. That being said, I still wouldn’t use CS on daily basis.

I use it topically for the boys. I’ll spray a microfiber cloth with it and wipe their faces after they eat. I’ve sprayed it in a cut as well but I’ve never given orally.

You guys fed up of UTI’s???

Try grapefruit seed extract! Yes for humans too!!

Also NOT just for UTI!! :)

https://wagwalking.com/wellness/benefits-of-grapefruit-seed-extract-for-your-dog

Read all especially at the end on what to buy.. only 2 ingredients on a label !!
https://draxe.com/essential-oils/grapefruit-seed-extract/

NOTE: Never purchase a grapefruit seed extract product that contains health-hazardous, synthetic chemicals like methylparaben, benzethonium chloride or triclosan. A typical formula recommend contains just two ingredients: grapefruit seed extract and vegetable glycerin.

I give cinnamon for my dogs in regimens. I found this site in english.... https://www.animalwised.com/benefits-of-cinnamon-for-dogs-2644.html

Interesting article. Usually cinnamon will affect....low blood sugar, liver disease, vomiting, diarrhea, and fluctuations in heart rate. I do understand as we move on with holistic way, we keep learning n finding out new studies that will completely have said the opposite 5-10yrs ago. I personally wouldn’t give cinnamon to a do but you are. I for sure will be researching more on this. :)

You give it on regular basis n how long they’ve been on it?

I usually make a mixture of different herbs that work well together and give it for 2-3 weeks. Then maybe a couple of days nothing and then some other mixture.

I posted this below for someone’s dog having UTI issues n 3 rounds of antibiotics.... Anyhoo... most knows antibiotics kills even the good cells. Why a probiotic is very important to be given while being on antibiotics to restore the guts flora. Now it’s not just any probiotic. We need to understand.......

“probiotics refrigerated vs shelf.” I prefer the refrigerated ones as there are specific strains in the bottle that needs to be in the fridge to stay alive. Now shelf life, what a lot of people don’t know n should be on the label n make sure you have good eyesight cause it will be in very fine print, it needs to be between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit wherever it’s sitting. If it’s not on the label, it’s on their website somewhere. Probably under acknowledgement section. The perfect probiotic lays under....how it was transported to the store. We have no clue how long it’s been sitting at the docks or at truck depots which can be for hours, often in the heat of the sun or how long it’s also been sitting in the back box of truck without refrigerated control. Basically it’s all about how it’s stored and shipped under strict temperature control. Shelf has a much higher risk that the strains has already died in the bottle. Why I would “never” buy any probiotics on a shelf. Any shelf products are usually all heated to seal the container, jars or bottles. This goes also for any human food. Anything that is canned is basically dead. You’re eating nothing that has a nutritional value. Just like pet food in a can. Heat kills! Another reason why we should simply buy fermented food as a probiotic. All these boutique shelf supplements or chewy type and even all these fancy kibbles is all about marketing. Don’t break your head, very simple, fermented sauerkraut, fermented veggies, fermented ACV, smelly green frozen tripe, organs or fresh wild caught frozen whole fish. It’s loaded of natural probiotics.

I figured I’ll add these links in here for the ones that wants to learn about raw diets, the ratio, how much to feed, probiotics-prebiotics, taurine, etc etc...

I know simply giving kibbles to your pet is much easier. It’s as we say, get it over with type. But definitely like all animals were meant to eat in the wild is raw.

In a nutshell....

This is what I feed my dogs n no you can’t order it as it’s only in Alberta. But check the ratio %

Read each link. I bet you’ll become a pro n do it yourself. :) it looks a lot but it’s very simple n a lot less expensive if than a higher quality kibble.

I’m a big fan on oil of oregano. I do give it to my dogs “every other day” only. I mix it in one of their meals 2drops only. I too take it myself.

Enjoy your reading as there’s so much great info in these links. And at the end of the day, you’ll have a healthier dog n see less of your vet. :)
