Avatar f tn makes all natural dog & horse supplements. They have a product called "Stress Free Calmplex" which works great. You can use it just on storm occasions, or going to the vet, or any stressful circumstance, or you can use it as a part of their daily routine for dogs with ongoing nervous personality problems, or obsessive/compulsive issues, or the like.
Avatar f tn White vinegar is excellent for cleaning the ears of dogs who have problems with bacteria and yeast because the vinegar changes the pH of the ear canal and makes it a place that is basically inhospitable to these things. The normal pH of an ear canal coupled with pendulous ears makes an ideal place for bacteria and yeast to grow. I am not familiar with the ear cleaner that you mentioned above.
Avatar m tn As a traditionally trained veterinarian with several years additional training and experience in holistic natural therapies, I have found that certain natural pet vitamin supplements provide safe and effective arthritis pain relief for arthritic dogs that are also affected with thyroid and kidney issues. Various combinations of Glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitan Sulfate, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids are safe and extremely effective to relieve pet arthritis pain.
Avatar n tn Now, yes, garlic is a traditional treatment for cats and dogs for ticks and fleas. But there are some suggestive studies that use of garlic in cats can lead to possible blood clotting issues, so I'd advise against using it unless absolutely neccessary. I would suggest switching to a wheat/ soy/ grain free diet. Use a digestive enzyme. This could help with your cat's breath and allergies.

Avatar n tn I have a 6 month old mixed breed dog that I take to the dog park daily. The park has cedar and bark pieces throughout, but some dirt underneath which the dogs love to roll around in. The no seeums seem to hang around the dirt and I'd like to find some kind of natural insect repellent. I recently found a product called The Bug Patch for myself which is deet free and 100% Thiamine B1 and seems to work. Is this also safe for dogs?
Avatar f tn Hopefully they will be along to tell you all about it. There are numerous other natural things you can try for pain. Astaxanthin is one natural anti inflammatory that helps pain and is great for overall health. The more time that you put between you and the opiates, the better your pain will get. Please really do some research before you try the kratom. Take care of yourself!

1791002 tn?1315326509 He has been on opioids for 4 yrs. on and off. He got injured a while back and lost his leg so they started prescribing him pills. He hasn't slept longer then 2-3 hours at a time because his brain does not shut off. He has extreme anxiety and hot an cold flashes. He doesn't want to take Xanax because it makes his anger uncontrollable and they are hard to get off of. He's been drinking strait vodka just to go to sleep 5 shoots worth.
Avatar f tn It depends on the person, just as with allopathic medicine. But since any method you try will recommend you get into therapy with a psychologist who specializes in anxiety treatment and to learn relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises and meditation you can look into these as well. Using natural medicine isn't what you're going to see on the internet usually, which will recommend one product and say, use this and you'll be fine.
Avatar m tn Top Ten Reasons Why Your Pet May Be Itchy by Jean Hofve, DVM, Veterinary Advisor to Only Natural Pet Itching—and the scratching, biting, and licking that goes with it—is one of the most common health problems in dogs and cats. Frequent head-shaking, scratching, rubbing, chewing, or licking some area of skin (including ears) means there’s a problem with itching, technically called “pruritis.
422425 tn?1307992990 But everyone is different and you may obtain better relief for longer periods of time. I think it is worth a try. What do you have to lose? The acupuncturist did sell me bottles of natural herbs that she said would improve my pain and condition. I purchased them for $40.00 and took them to my PCP who firmly told me to not take them. I have other medical factors that would not have tolerate them. I quit going to the acupuncturist several weeks later.

4619045 tn?1361132610 ) CAYENNE PEPPER The Clayton College of Natural Health mentions the topical use of capsaicin cream or cayenne pepper, also called capsicum, for pain relief for trigeminal neuralgia. Capsaicin cream is available for purchase in pharmacies. Alternatively, a pinch of cayenne pepper can be mixed with olive oil or other unscented facial cream and applied to the painful area. Both capsaicin and cayenne pepper may produce hypersensitivity of the skin and the affected nerve.
Avatar f tn Only a doctor's exam, if anything, will tell you if the head rush and dizziness are something physical or not. Stress isn't the same thing as anxiety. Everyone goes through more and less stressful periods of time. Anxiety is a problem when it's chronic, and you seem to be describing a chronic insecurity and fear.
Avatar f tn Talk things out, write your worries out and make plans on what to do, ask your dr. for natural anxiety relief. I hear yoga also helps. A good support system is key!
Avatar n tn I use a product called Natural Defense on our 3 dogs. It's a flea & tick spot on that is essential oils. It kills fleas & ticks & repels mosquitoes. The ingredients are cinnamon oil, clove oil, peppermint oil, lemon grass oil. It is a once a month spot on and it really works. A 3 month supply is $12.00. I get mine from a pet supply vendor at the farmers market but I have also seen it at Petco. As for the dogs scratching and does not have fleas.
