Removing Abscesses and Other Foreign Particles in Your Dog’s Body WITHOUT Surgery!

Many years ago (I’m afraid to actually think back that far.) I was talking to the lady at the health food store, when she noticed I was fiddling with an annoying splinter, in my hand, while listening to her. She said I should try some silica tissue salts to help dislodge the splinter. Because I couldn’t get to the splinter with tweezers and the tissue salts were only $8 at the time, I thought I would give it a go.

Dosage was recommended at 2 tablets 4 times per day. It seems a lot compared to other dosage rates but considering the amount of silica in each tablet is very miniscule it isn’t much at all.

Anyway, 2 days after taking the silica salts I woke up to notice the splinter was surrounded by a white puss like substance. Much like a pimple! I squeezed it and the pus and splinter came out together. The hole left by the splinter quickly healed and I was grateful for the health shop ladies advice.

The next time silica salts came in handy was for my uncles dog Hector. He had an abscess on his cheek that wouldn’t go away. The vet had already prescribed antibiotics, as usual, but weeks after the antibiotics were finished the abscess would return. An expensive trip to the vet, to get it removed surgically, was on the cards.

Since the silica tissue salts was a cheap alternative my uncle humoured me and agreed to try it. I gave my uncle my unfinished bottle of silica tissue salts and explained the dosage schedule. For abscesses they recommend dosing one or two tablets 4 or more times per day.

After 4 days of silica tissue salt treatment the abscess erupted expelling the foreign bodies that caused the abscess. My uncle commented that it was the first time he saw a natural product actually work. It is quite cool because you can see it working and the results do happen fast.

I have used it many times now on dogs and myself with varying results. With splinters I have had a 100% success rate.  However effectiveness with boils and abscesses seems to vary depending on the depth under the skin of the foreign body.  Also I will only try it for about 4 to 5 days before I give up but have been told that deep abscesses take longer to come to the surface, which makes sense.

At about $12 a bottle of 100 tablets it’s worth a try before heading off to the doctor or vet. I always keep a bottle handy in my medicine cabinet.

Tissue salt come in varying forms of minerals that help with different symptoms from cramping to insomnia to expelling foreign bodies like I discussed today.  I have to mention that I have only experience with the silica salts but if you are interested in learning more about all the different tissue salts and what they can do for you. Google “Schuessler Cell Salts”.

Remember to do your research and even consult your doctor. I personally think it’s better to try a natural remedy before heading down the medication path and definitely do anything to avoid surgery.

Are You Being Misled? Alarming Trend on Dog Food Websites

Yesterday, I was researching where people go to buy dog food online.

It was not long into my research that I began to notice an alarming trend:

Some of the large online pet food stores are withholding the most essential nutritional information on dog food labels. In particular, The Guaranteed Analysis.

The Guaranteed Analysis and Ingredients panels are where you, the consumer, can see what you are really buying. Dog food makers are legally bound to display accurate information in both panels, but this regulation isn’t always observed.

When you browse to buy dog food, you’ll discover cases where online pet food retailers show an Ingredients List but don’t show the Guaranteed Analysis panel! I even came across one store that showed neither! What are they trying to hide from you?

You really must see both pieces of information. Here’s why…

Your Dog’s Health Is In The Details

If a retailer discloses only the ingredients, it’s extremely misleading for consumers buying dog food online.

For example,

  • You could have Product A and Product B, both with identical ingredients.
  • The quantities of these ingredients in Products A and B could be very different.
  • As a result, the Guaranteed Analysis of Product A and B would also be different.

Have a close look at two real-life examples below.

You’ll notice the ingredient panels are identical:

Product A
Ingredients
– Chicken Meal, Pork Meal, Ground Brown Rice, Oatmeal, Rice, Dehulled Barley, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Tomato Pomace, Flaxseed, Brewers Dried Yeast.

GUARANTEED ANALYSIS

Crude Protein (min.) 25.00%
Crude Fat (min.) 12.00%
Crude Fiber (max.) 4.00%
Moisture (max.) 10.00%
Calcium (min.) 1.70%
Phosphorus (min.) 1.10%
Vitamin E (min.) 120 IU/kg
Omega-6 Fatty Acids* (min.) 2.75%
Omega-3 Fatty Acids* (min.) 0.75%

Product B
Ingredients
– Chicken Meal, Pork Meal, Oatmeal, Dehulled Barley, Ground Brown Rice, Peas, Rice, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Brewers Dried Yeast, Flaxseed, Tomato Pomace.

GUARANTEED ANALYSIS

Crude Protein (min.) 27.00%
Crude Fat (min.) 14.00%
Crude Fiber (max.) 4.00%
Moisture (max.) 10.00%
Calcium (min.) 1.50%
Phosphorus (min.) 1.00%
Vitamin E (min.) 120 IU/kg
Omega-6 Fatty Acids* (min.) 2.50%
Omega-3 Fatty Acids* (min.) 0.50%

 

At this point, you might assume there is no difference between the two. WRONG!

That’s what some dog food makers want you to think.

But here’s how you can avoid that misleading trap …

When compared, the Guaranteed Analysis of Product A – vs – Product B, reveals:

  • Product A’s protein level is 25% and product B’s protein level at 27%.
  • So 100 grams of product A will have 25g of protein and Product B will have 2 grams more, which actually translates to 2/25 which is 8% more protein.
  • When comparing fat levels, 100 grams of each product will show 2 grams more fat for Product B and that translates to 16.7% more fats, which for dogs is actually healthier.

The lesson here? Pay close attention to the details on the Guaranteed Analysis panel.

The 3 nutrition-critical metrics to look for when buying dog food online are high level percentages for:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Omega 3 & 6

If at this point you may feel overwhelmed. Don’t. It only takes a few tiny-tweaks to your dog-food-buying smarts to make a lifetime of difference to your dog.

To help, here’s a quick video clip that explains ALL you need to know to make great decisions when buying dog food online. This clip gets you up to speed on the specific information on what to look for and what to avoid
