I’ve been meaning to share more about the holistic remedies and products I use on my dogs but so much keeps popping up! That’s a good thing of course but I am excited to start sharing more health tips and building out that side of the blog. I’d like to introduce you to colloidal silver.
If you aren’t familiar with this antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal liquid, that’s ok! I didn’t know much about it until about three years ago. Now, I use it on myself and my dogs. Colloidal silver is a liquid that has immune supporting properties and many humans will take it as a supplement daily.
I use colloidal silver on cuts, scrapes, ears, hot spots and lick granulomas. Colloidal silver is a great all-around product to treat bacterial, yeast, fungal and viruses of all types. It can even be used to treat ringworm.
Colloidal silver was first used by the ancient Romans and Greeks to keep themselves healthy and holistic doctors continue to prescribe it to patients today. Colloidal silver are small particles of silver suspended in a liquid solution that pack a punch when it comes to killing bacteria.
Below is a breakdown of how I use it on my dogs. I don’t give this to them as an oral supplement, and I highly recommend speaking to your vet before changing anything in your dog’s health routine. Click here to purchase the colloidal silver I use. *
-I combine 1 cup of distilled water and 1 tablespoon of colloidal silver, mix well and wet the mixture on a cloth or cotton ball and clean the ears. You can also add some green tea to your mix for a soothing property.
-1/4 cup of distilled water and 1 tablespoon and apply to the wound with a cotton ball. Or you can mix 1 tablespoon of colloidal silver and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to create a salve and apply it to the wound.
Hot Spot / Lick Granuloma’s
Same as above but I add in calendula oil because it helps irritated skin greatly. If I add calendula oil into the mix I will up my distilled water content just by a little. I will be doing a whole other blog post on the benefits of calendula oil so stay tuned!
