     I joined the group becaue I really do not know much about holistic medicines and cures or treatments for animals and am very intersted in learning!

   That is why I have not posted much.

Thanks for joining howaboutyou.. welcome... Holistic medicine is a way of treating and looking at the whole person/animal. It views every aspect of the animal, their environment, stress level, living conditions, stress of family. Emotions and stress play a big part in illness and disease and Holistic is a way of approaching in a pure and whole way. Many natural remedies come from the Earth and Native peoples around the world have been practicing it for centuries. We here are just starting to get back to these ways. less invasive procedures, preventative medicine is all holistic.

Hello Samantha

Some people are looking as an cute animal.

I don't know if I am welcome here. It's Raven S.' guilt

In the past everyone was dependent of natural curing. And we gypsies are also dependent of hospitals but we have still natural curing as well.

Have a wonderful time!

Everyone is welcome here... this is a positive approach to natural healing.. It is designed for people who have pets and companion animals.... I am not sure what you were referring to as ravens guilt? this is about loving creatures and treating them in a non-invasive way thats all.

I pledge to do more too!

Sorry I've been such a bad co-host everyone! It's amazing how life can sort of keep throwing things at you. I am finally finding the time to be able to write again and, like Raven, I have some great articles planned. I just recieved some new books on alternative healing for pets and they have filled me with ideas! My vigor is restored and I promise I will make an effort to do my part!

Hello, I'm new here

I'm new here and am looking forward what I can do to help all of my sick foster animals (and shelter animals I take care of) in addition to medicine I give them.  I'm excited to be here.

I have one foster kitten that had two fractured ribs and has suffered from pneumonia (w/aspirations in her lungs) since she was 4 weeks old, now she's around 11 weeks old.  She's been on numerous antibiotics & breathing treatments for the entire time but is still sick, hopefully I can find something to help her.

Welcome Jill... glad to have you here!!! here is some info for you!!

Here is alist of herbs taken from a website onherbal suppport for cats...

  • Black Elderberry (fruit):  Elderberry is the fruit of the black elder tree (Sambucus nigra). Elderberry is an excellent source of vitamins A, B and C, as well as bioflavonoids and anthocyanins, which support proper cell functioning. Its properties may also strengthen the body's immune system. Elderberry extract was recently announced in a Journal of Science report to be an extremely effective remedy for Influenza.
  • Lemon Balm (leaf):  Lemon balm is a traditional botanical used widely as an antibacterial and antiviral agent.  Also known as having antioxidant activity, Lemon balm is commonly found in formulas designed to support the immune system during herpes simplex outbreaks.
  • Licorice (root):  Licorice has been used in ancient Greece, China, and Egypt for ailments of the upper respiratory tract. Licorice has antiviral and antimicrobial properties and soothes the body's mucous membranes including those found in the throat. It also supports proper functioning of the adrenal gland during times of illness and stress.
  • Lomatium (root):  The root of the Lomatium dissectum plant has been used extensively by the Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest and Northern Nevada where it grows. It is used primarily for upper respiratory infections due to its antiviral and antibacterial properties. Lomatium is also commonly found in formulas designed to support the immune system during herpes simplex outbreaks.
  • Red Root (root):  Red root has been historically used to stimulate lymph and inter-tissue fluid circulation, which supports proper function of the immune system.
  • Usnea Lichen (whole plant):  Usnea contains usnic acid, a natural antibiotic proven effective against gram positive bacterial conditions, such as infections of Streptococcus (strep throat), Staphylococcus (e.g., impetigo), and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
  • Wild Indigo (root):  Wild indigo is traditionally used for its antimicrobial action on focused infections, particularly of the ear, nose and throat. Wild Indigo is believed to help liquefy phlegm and support its drainage. It also stimulates lymph and inter-tissue fluid circulation, which supports proper function of the immune system.
  • Yerba Mansa (root):  Yerba Mansa has been used for centuries for poorly healing infections of the mouth. It has similar properties to the commonly used herb Golden Seal, and although unrelated to Golden Seal chemically or botanically, it can be used similarly to support relief from inflammation of the mucous membranes, swollen gums and sore throat. This is important because Golden Seal, a popular herbal remedy, is in danger of becoming extinct in the wild due to exploitation.  Yerba Mansa is also used for its antibacterial and antifungal properties.
  • Yerba Santa (leaf):  This traditional Native American herb is used to support the loosening and release of phlegm and the opening of the bronchial passages.
  • Isatis (leaf, root):  Isatis has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to support reduction of heat, to cool the blood and throat, and to support the immune system.  It has antiviral and antimicrobial properties.

I hope this helps....

Sick Pets

I'm new to the group. Glad I found it
This past week my mom's dog and cats have been sick. The dog  is very warm to the touch and always panting. My mom has 3 cats-indoor/outdoor- 2 of them are really tired all the time and one of them has a runny nose, the 3rd is healthy. Could you please tell me what should I give them and what dose?

Welcome Eva!

Have your mother's cats had their Feline Leukemia vaccination? It's very easily transmitted between cats, especially if they have outside access. Lethargia is one of the first noticeable symptoms. If they have not been vaccinated, I would have them all tested.

As for the dog... it's hard to say just from what you wrote. Warm to the touch and panting? Anything else out of the ordinary?

This forum is in no way meant to be a substitute for proper veterinary care. If there is any suspicion of pain or serious illness, the animal should be taken to a vet immediately. The contributions to this forum are meant to supplement and diagnosis of a veterinarian, not replace.
