Kiz – Val, while you were away Kerrie wanted to know how much antihistamine to give Stan. We were as much use as a chocolate teapot ::)
Please can we have a list of common treatments and supplements with the appropriate strength and dose per 10kg of dog.
Just the normal stuff that we normally plague the life out of you for, then if you are busy or not on line we can look it up in the stickies :yes:

ant bites – ?

Conjunctivitis – wash with an infusion of Rosemary.
Good antiseptic – use for bacterial infections

or Brolene – both have same active ingredient.
Val’s famous recipe 😉
Blue Powder Ear Treatment
16 Oz. Isopropyl Alcohol
4 Tablespoons Boric Acid Powder
16 Drops Gentian Violet Solution 1%
Mix together in alcohol bottle and shake well.
You will also need to shake solution every time you use it to disperse the Boric Acid Powder.
To use, purchase the “Clairol” type plastic bottle or a small baby ear syringe bottle to dispense solution to affected ears.
TREATMENT: Evaluate condition of ears before treating and if very inflamed and sore do not attempt to pull hair or clean out ear at all.
Wait until inflammation has subsided which will be about 2 days.
Shake the bottle each time before using.
Put cotton balls or similiar absorbent material under ther ear.
Flood the ear with solution, (gently squirt bottle), massage gently to the count of 60,
wipe with a tissue.
Flood again on first treatment, wipe with a tissue,and leave alone without massage.
The dog will shake out the excess which can be wiped with a tissue, cotton ball, etc
as the Gentian Violet does stain fabrics.
The SCHEDULE of treatment is as follows:
Treat 2x per day for the first week to two weeks depending upon severity
Treat 1x per day for the next 1-2 weeks
Treat 1x per month (or even less frequently, depending on the dog)
All of these ingredients should be available at a pharmacy.
Others have found that despite the alcohol, the dog will not object to even the first treatment. The Boric Acid Powder soothes the ear. The Gentian Violet Solution is an anti-infection agent. The solution appears to work well on any and all ear problems from mites
to wax to canker.
After the 2nd or 3rd day you can clean out the ear with a Q- tip or cotton balls.
The success rate for this treatment is 95-99%.
Dogs on the verge of ear canal surgery have been returned to normal with only the regular follow-up treatment to keep the ear healthy. If an infection seems to be remaining in the treated ear after the above course of treatment, you may also have some Pseudomonas bacteria in the site.
This can be eradicated by using a gentle flush of raw apple cider vinegar and water(warm)
Use 2 Tablespoons of vinegar to one cup of water, 2 x per week.
They have found the Blue Powder Solution to be effective for treating fungus-type infections on the feet and elsewhere on the dog, for cuts on dogs or people, and for hot spots.
Remember it is for external use only ..so be careful not to get into the eyes.
This is my favourite I do warm it a little in hot water first
Olbas oil on bedding
Upset Tum (s****)
Starve for 12 hours
Feed boiled fish/chicken with overcooked rice or potato mash
Can use Kaolin Paediatric ( without Morphine )
Dose – 1 capsule per 10kg of weight – 3 times a day
If using Slippery Elm powder – ‘Quote’ use it like cornflower powder in jug mix to a paste with cold water top up with hot boiled water stuff it in a dog bowl with dog food ;D 😉
Prebiotics – live yoghurt – yakult, banana, raw oats
Prebiotics are non-digestible foods that make their way through the digestive system and help good bacteria grow and flourish. Prebiotics keep beneficial bacteria healthy
Probiotics are friendly bacteria found in foods and dietary supplements that can help bring back the balance of good bacteria.
Waterworks problems with girlies
For topical application on minor scrapes and sore spots
