FEBRUARY 12, 2009 - VINEGAR FOR CLEAN EARS

I saw in Thatch's question thread that there was discussion about ear health. Here is an inexpensive remedy to try.

From apple-cider-vinegar-benefits.com
Vinegar Ear Wash:

Unfortunately a large percentage of dog and cat visits to the veterinarian are for ear problems, but the good news is, you can help reduce these visits by cleaning your pet's ears on a regular weekly basis.
An inexpensive way to do this is to dip a soft cotton ball into a solution of equal parts apple cider vinegar and water, and use it to swab the inside of his or her ear.

For an infected ear, use 5 ml of the 50hi50 vinegar water solution per 20 lbs (9 kg) of body weight, applying the solution with a syringe obtained from your local pharmacy. Gently rub in the solution then wipe the inside of the ear with a soft cotton ball. This should be done daily for 5 days.

The vinegar helps to control the growth of unfriendly bacteria and other microorganisms that are a common cause of ear infections, and as a result, this will help keep your pets from scratching their ears.

I must say that vinegar has not worked for us .....I know many that use it with good results , but it has not gave us good results .

We can't even use the all natural cleaners that have vinegar as just one of the ingredients

We stick with the Vet Solutions ear cleaner ....only thing that we have found that does not irritate the lab ears that need cleaned very often

FEBRUARY 15, 2009 - CALMING TRIVIA

From the book New Choices In Natural Healing For Dogs & Cats.

"Research has shown that sound causes physical changes in the body. Music with a rhythm of about 60 beats a minute, for example, slows electrical activity in the brain, causing pets to feel more relaxed and peaceful, says Dr. Mary Lee Nitschke, Ph.D. It also slows breathing and heartbeat and helps the body's metablolism work more efficiently.
