    Honey and other natural products have benefits vets and big Pharma don’t want you to know.
    The only natural product that is good for people but not for cats and dogs are cranberries, which change dissolving stones to ones requiring surgery
    Keep up the great work. BC doesn’t deserve a vet like you.

    I love using honey and your recommendations for using natural products. I try to reinforce that with my vet, who at first wasn’t too open to using herbal products but, has since come around.
    “Change is done one at a time”
    Thanks for all your great advice and knowledge.

    Hi Gale, I have been giving my 9 yr old cockapoo cranberry juice for her bladder infections and she has bladder stones so did I make it so I can’t get it to dissolve? I have been giving her lemon juice in her food as well as slippery elm and homeopathics. I cannot afford the thousand plus dollars for surgery and rather not put her through that surgery as well.
    Thank you Dr Jones for the great information.

    Thank you so much for such valuable information mentioning specific holistic meds for different ailments.
    My one request is that you SPELL the names of the meds and speak a little slower so we can catch all the great advice you give for our pets. Also, please speak slowly when giving dosages so we can clearly hear what is safe to give our pets. You are a real godsend to the pet population, and on their behalf, I salute you!

    Enjoy all the info you have to give. look forward to your podcasts. Manuka honey a great healer. My daughters chihuahua broke her leg. After the vet tried everything could not get it to heal. Finally vet recommended manuka honey and after a few weeks wound healed.Highly recommend I saw it healing with the honey. Thank you for all your advice

    As many of us leave Canada and retire to another country (e.g. Mexico), I don’t know what I would do without these podcasts/daily emails. I have three cats and two chow chows –and the money I save not having to pay for a vet visit covers the other pet related things that are much more expensive here. I love my guys and don’t want to ever be in the situation where I wonder if I have sufi ie t money to keep them healthy and me happy! thanks for everything, Lois, Mario, Karlie, Jane, Zena and Min-tope!!!!

    I really like the idea of pod casts that way the information is with you,when and if needed at that time.The information that is mentioned is not even mentioned in the vets office.

    WOW. A lot of information and simple to understand. Although it would be nice to see the names of the medicine since it’s fast paced. Thank you for sharing your knowledge <3.

    Can I give my pet(s) – dogs and cats, honey orally. Or is it only external.

    I had no idea that honey was also beneficial for treating abscesses, what a wonderful treat to have around.
    Please continue the great work, Thanks

    Invaluable advice, comprehensive and specific and a generous sharing of your knowledge. Of course Apis is the female Nux vom and an essential remedy in renal failure. But all Homoeopathic remedies must be used with care and Homoeopathic supervision.

    Thank you so much for the information in your podcasts. I did not know that honey would treat an abscess. My male cat has many puncture bite wounds in his long life he is 18 years old. I could have saved many vet visits if I had known about your web site earlier. Thanks for great vitamins too. I give them to both my dogs. One American Eskimo is 19 + years old and still able to run and play with the younger dog thanks to your vitamins!
