Re: Contagious Disease ALERT


Hello fellow readers – Welcome to Tuesday.

I am just finishing up for tonight’s Pet Healing Webinar- but as I prepare for it I want to leave you with a new remedy.

Contagious Disease ALERT

In our little town of Nelson, we’ve had a DISEASE outbreak.

Not something super serious like Anthrax or Rabies.

But HUNDREDS of Coughing Dogs…


And what is the cause of this you may wonder?

Kennel Cough.

It’s a combination of a Virus (Influenza) and a Bacteria called Bordetella.

The signs are a sudden onset of a ‘goose honking’ cough, that often then leads to retching because of so much coughing.

MOST dogs are still alert – eating and drinking.

I have seen a few older dogs that have developed pneumonia as a result – BUT that is because they are older and don’t have a fully functioning immune system.

And the TREATMENT is…..

Well that depends on who you see.

Many Veterinarians, including myself in my earlier days, will INSTANTLY prescribe antibiotics.

BUT if your dog is young, and still alert, including eating and drinking, AND has clear lung sounds, then these are NOT needed.

NO antibiotics. WHY?

Think of it like you having a Cold.

If it is a virus, antibiotics WON’T do anything.

The disease has to run it’s course.

BUT what can I do?

1.We do not know if it is viral or bacterial, BUT it will run it’s course. If your dog is bright and alert, and eating and drinking, then she can be treated at home.

2.Give your pet an immune boost: add in chopped FRESH Garlic to their diet – 1 clove per 40lbs

3. You can mix Eucalyptus Essential Oil in a vaporizer, and leave it in the room a few feet from where your pet is sleeping.

4. Here is a New Herbal Combination for Coughing Dogs with Kennel Cough:

1 part Coltsfoot
1 part Elecampane
1 part Mullein
1 part Yarrow
1 part Marshmallow

Mix the tinctures together, and dose at 1ml per 40lbs 3 times daily for 3-5 days.

This formula will EASE spasmodic coughing, soothe irritated mucous membranes, and give the immune system a boost in fighting the infection.


P.S. Thanks to all of you who took the time to answer my survey questions.

To those of you who didn’t read Friday’s newsletter announcement, here it is again:

I am really close to releasing my long awaited ‘Ultimate Canine Health Formula’ – but before I release it I would like to have you answer a few questions.

Can you help me out?

    As anyone who knows how to handle chimps, they know that when chimps are young they are very docile and you can treat them like family, but when they mature their hormones(for lack of a better word) make them very dangerous because they are so strong. A mature chimp is very dangerous and should be treated as such, That poor chimp probably sensed that her friend was a threat to his security and that is why he went crazy because he was a mature chimp. Anyone that does not learn all about the animal they care for should never have animals as they are not very responsible.
