Treating Different Problems Related To Your Pets

Aug 17, 2007
Pets are one of the most unselfish beings in anyone's household. So treating them when any problem arises is one of the most important things to do by any pet owner.

- When your Pet gets Stung

* If your pet is stung remove the stinger with tweezers, this increases his/her chances of survival with the removal of the venomous stinger.

* The stung area can get some relief with the use baking soda and water solution.

* To reduce the swelling apply ice pack covered with a thin towel over the affected area. Do it within every five minutes.

- For Skin Irritation

* If your pet has suffered insect bites, hot spots or other skin problems you can dab some milk of magnesia to soothe and calm the irritated skin.

* Apply aloe vera gel over the affected area. If you have aloe vera plant you can cut the leaf and use it as a soothing gel.

* Apply organic apple cider vinegar over the irritated skin.

* For hot spots you can use witch hazel for a continuous period of time.

* For itchy skin and paws you can bathe your pet in Epsom salt solution. In 2 cups of warm water mix 1 teaspoon Epsom salt.

* You can make a home-made spray to treat any skin problems. Use 3 capsules of sage, 1/4 teaspoon of Epsom salt and 2 cups of water. Boil this solution and let it cool. After straining, store this solution in spray bottle and keep it in the refrigerator.

- Other Problems

* Emu oil is can be used for many problems such as ringworms, flea bites, bee stings, rashes, hot spots and laceration.

* If your pet has been poisoned notify the vet immediately.

* If the pet has swallowed any toxic substance except for caustic substances, getting him to vomit, this would reduce the danger.

* If the pet has ingested alkaline substance such as cleanser or kerosene, vomiting would not be a good solution. Instead give 3 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice diluted in equal amounts of water.

* If a battery has been ingested which is acidic, 1 tsp milk of magnesia, per 5 Lbs. of pet.

* If your pup has diarrhea and adult dog suffers with soft stool problem you can add canned pumpkin in their diet.

* A very common problem in pets is loss of vision caused mainly due to cataract. A very useful flower called cineraria has been known to reduce the size of cataract as well as minimize its existence. With the help of tincture, dilute 1/2 saline (to be purchased) and 1/2 cineraria to make eye drops. A daily dosage of 2 drops for 3 months can help to solve this problem.

* If your pet has lost his or her sense of smell, a nutritious meal can just be the right motivator. Feed your pet a rich and nutritious diet which improves the keen sense of smell. Warm canned food without salt, but with a dash of garlic powder is a good way to improve that smell.
