Natural painkillers for dogs, cats and horses

Natural painkillers for dogs, cats and horses

When our horses, dogs or cats are chronically ill, we sometimes cannot avoid a treatment with painkillers or anti-inflammatories. The chemistry kitchens of pharmaceutical companies offer us the ‘Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs “(NSAIDs) or” NSAIDs “(NSAP) such as aspirin, ibuprofen, diclofenac, etc. These drugs relieve the symptoms of a disease (pain, inflammation), but they do not fight the causes. As a result, they become a permanent companion for some animals. With partly life-threatening consequences. Because NSAIDs or NSAP have partly considerable side effects. Horse, dog and cat owners who have been haunted by the suffering of their pets are therefore often looking desperately for a way out and then try out phytotherapy (herbal medicine). But are plants actually a drug to fight pain and inflammation?

natural painkillers for dogsRecently, I got an email from a dog owner. His favorite four-legged friend was suffering from various inflammatory and degenerative musculoskeletal disorders which were treated with painkillers for a long time, after which the animal had suffered a perforation. The man knew his dog´s illness very well and was super informed. He reported that his family had already tried everything and asked me now, if I had any idea of what to do.

This is no individual case. Far too often, I learn of horse, dog or cat owners, how much damage the NSAPs can wreak. Most of the stomach is affected: stomach bleeding, stomach ulcers, gastritis or even perforation. How can this happen? Let´s take Aspirin as an example : The active ingredient of aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid = ASA. The acetyl group has the property to prevent blood clotting, which can then cause bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract. Even Ibuprofen and diclofenac go to the stomach. Paracetamol may be toxic to the liver. The choice between different anti-inflammatory drugs is therefore in terms of side effects, the choice between the plague and cholera.

So, back to nature regarding natural painkillers for dogs, cats and horses?

Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Although the excellent analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of many plants have been proven by studies (mostly however only in humans), anyone who thinks that herbal painkillers had no side effects, unfortunately is mistaken. Even Paracelcus warned in terms of Phytotherapy “the dose makes the poison”. If plants were generally absolutely harmless, he would not have felt called upon to point out a responsible dosage. Therefore, many – but not all – natural substances are as irritant to the stomach as their synthetic counterpart – both for humans and for the horse, the dog and the cat. Incense, Yucca, Chilli, devil’s claw, ginger … all very potent plants … but just as strong in their side effects. For they also attack the stomach. That is why the above-mentioned plants are useful only as a short trigger but not in the long-term treatment.

However, there are also natural herbal painkillers for dogs, cats and horses without significant side effects!

Willow bark especially for dogs

The aforementioned dog owner was advised by his veterinarian to not use willow bark, on the ground, that this is the same as aspirin and would therefore also have the same side effects. Indeed, but this is not the case. For, although both have in common salicylic acid (salicin) as an active ingredient, they differ considerably in another point: willow bark does not have the additional occurring aspirin acetyl group and therefore not the devastating side effects. (And, yes, as already mentioned above, it is the acetyl group, which triggers microhaemorrhages, NOT the salicylic acid!) Recent studies even assume that the pain-relieving effect of willow bark is not only due to the salicin, but also to the other components of the willow bark such as tannins, proanthocyanidins and flavonoids. The only contraindication to the use of willow bark is a “Salicyl acid hypersensitivity” (0.2% of the human population suffer from it) and, unfortunately, the use in cats. Because cats can only degrade salicylic acid partly due to a glucuronidation weakness – it can therefore lead to poisoning.

However, humans are being recommended the use of willow bark in chronic diseases because, even though it builds its effect slower than aspirin, it can provide sustainable pain relief without side effects. Equally helpful I find willow bark for dogs. Horses, however metabolize the salicylic acid in one hour, which is not enough time to establish effective blood levels. Nevertheless, you can use willow bark in horses. The reason is that I have observed horses feasting on a willow tree in the cold season. Therefore the plant must bring them some kind of benefit.Even if it is only a short kick for the body. Nevertheless, every horse owner should be aware of the half-life of salicylic acid in the horse, because that separates the willow bark from a durable and constant pain treatment!

Natural painkillers for dogs, cats and horses … Here´s another advantage that plants have to drugs:

Plants intervene directly in the inflammatory process, rather than just to inhibit it

Nettle e.g.

natural painkillers for dogsThe NSAID or NSAP only fight the symptoms. They inhibit pain transmission and inflammation. According to studies, plants can do more than that. And so we’ll get to another herbal painkiller and anti-inflammatory that is often underestimated or not detected: the nettle. Several studies showed that the nettle does not only have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects, but also engages directly in the inflammatory process. How does it do it? It inhibits cytokines. These are the body’s own messengers that, in a complex sequence of events such as the attack of cartilage, lead to inflammation. Thus, there is direct intervention in the pathological event. Therefore, the nettle is not only a herbal painkiller and anti-inflammatories in the acute stage for horses, dogs and cats, but also a wonderful prophylaxis agents for example, Osteoarthritis predisposed animals in the early stages, etc.

The Rosehip

Another great herbal painkiller is rosehip (as dried whole fruit and powdered). This is due to its high content of naturally occurring vitamin C, which in ancient times has proven itself as particularly successful in the fight against inflammation, swelling and pain.

Pain-relieving plants for external use

Although they internally may need up to 3 weeks to reach their full analgesic potential, plants act immediately when applied externally. There is a wealth of opportunities – whereby not every plant is also equally skin-friendly. Anyone who wants to treat his horse or his dog longer with external applications, should take on the skin compatibility consideration. Because once the skin is damaged, another treatment won´t be possible for a long time.

Here´s a small collection without claim of completeness: Arnica (kind to the skin, except for Arnica allergy), comfrey (quite strong), nettle, fenugreek, calendula / calendula, cayenne pepper (strong irritant), St. John’s Wort (as oil), mint (as Oil)

And what about cats?

natural painkillers for dogs and catsYes, the poor cats are somewhat at a disadvantage as opposed to horses and dogs in terms of herbal painkillers. Because of their glucuronidation weakness they tolerate neither salicylic acid (such as mentioned above) nor essential oils. The selection is quite narrow. Luckily they seem, at least according to my present knowledge, to tolerate both nettle and rose hips! This way you can also provide cats with herbal anti-inflammatories. However, outwardly should only be contemplated, which may also be used internally in cats. Because as we know the little tigers lick really EVERYTHING from their coat that doesn´t belong there. Therefore nettle (as outer and inner treatment), or healing earth are recommendable in their case. Any other liniments based on alcohol, essential oils etc should not be used for the sake of the cat.


Animal reflexology

Animal reflexology

For all the internal organs of our body there are areas of skin that are connected to the organs by their own neural pathways, so-called reflex zones. With the help of animal reflexology we can achieve a positive effect on diseased organs and other affected parts of the body, massaging specific areas.
This does not always have to be painful and can take place with little pressure, gentle brushing and pressing with the fingertips. With the help of acupuncture massage using a stick like the Thermie Roll the effect of animal reflexology may be intensified.

Since the naturopathy in the animal field works just like for humans – the contrary, because the animals do not work with their “mind” against it – the effects are seen often quickly and clearly. Even restless animals go to sleep, yawn, stretch and deepen their breathing in a very short time.

Diseases, pain and blocked energy in physical and mental areas can be identified and the healing is stimulated.

Animal reflexologyIn horses, dogs and cats the most effective reflexology areas are on the head, paws and ears. Only these parts of the body have nerve endings which are sufficiently pronounced. The brain and spinal cord (= energy source) are the main switching areas for energy changes. Here all of the organ zones are displayed and can be treated with the reflexology. Each disease is an energy flow disturbance. With animal reflexology the energy flow is stimulated and thus activates the self-healing power.

Manual techniques are used when stronger structural blockages occur, such as in articulated traction to loosen the bonded joint capsules or the gentle loosening of vertebral blockages or blockages of the hip joint, iliosacral joint.

Passive mobilization

In rehabilitation, the massage takes place after surgery, joint pain, lameness, injuries, muscle tension and scarring e.g after knee surgery.

The passive exercise therapy is the movement of the diseased joints without the animal’s active participation and serves as a preparation for further therapeutic measires. During a passive motion therapy hardened, scar tissues around joints are gently being stretched and mobilized through save range of motion, after they were heated with therapeutic ultrasound.

Active mobilization

The active mobilization calls for a strong collaborations of the animal. In an exercise parcour the animals learn specific movements and coordination. The joints are actively flexed and extended; the proprioception and balance are trained.

The biggest challenge to the entire body is the underwater treadmill. During this process a variety of desired therapeutic goals are achieved at the same time .

Canine Reflexology

In neurological diseases special massage techniques are used, which stimulate reflexology points. The stimulation of the meridians is a form of neuro-massage which can be applied using small objects such as balls or brass pin.

Externally, reflex points of nerve nuclei in the spinal cord are stimulated manually; e.g. animals with complete paralysis of the hind limbs after disc surgery.

Relaxation massage

Dog Cancer Diet

Dog Cancer Diet

Cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs. Almost 50 percent of all dogs that are older than ten years, develop cancer. However, many of these cases can be successfully treated with the help of modern veterinary medicine and other complimentary methods: In addition to the surgical removal of tumors now comes more and more chemotherapy are used, which can prolong the survival time significantly in certain types of tumors.

To avoid chemotherapy and surgery you can first of all change your dog´s diet.

The tumor drains nutrients

A major problem in the treatment of cancer patients is the diet: The tumor consumes nutrients and forces the body to tackle their own reserves. It comes to the breakdown of muscle protein, the burning of fat and a strong emaciation. Due to the resulting nutrient deficiency the immune system function also suffers. Therefore, cancer patients need a special diet, which, on one hand supplies the body with sufficient energy, but at the same time keeps the tumor as short as possible. Specially tailored to this need, for example, is a new diet, which is available at the vet (Hill’s Prescription Diet Canine) and was developed for the diet of cancer patients.

Dog Cancer Diet: Less carbohydrates for the sick dog

Dog cancer dietThe food contains a reduced proportion of carbohydrates, to not supply additional energy to the tumor, while the fat and protein content is increased, so that the body reserves can be replenished. By adding omega-3 fatty acid and the amino acid arginine immune function is increased and the depletion can be counteracted. The lining is only available as canned food and only for dogs and can be given during the entire lifetime of a dog with cancer. However, it has no preventive function, so is not suitable for healthy dogs that should be fed natural and organic dog food.

In the alternative treatment of tumors, pet food should be composed as follows: 50 percent poultry or fish and 50 percent of vegetables and fruits. In addition: high-dose fish oil as a source of fat (olive oil or alternatively flaxseed oil)

Dog Cancer Diet: Feed additives in tumor treatment

Dietary supplements can affect the course of the disease positively. The veterinarian or animal healers provides information on the individual dose.

Vitamin C: suppresses free radicals, inhibits cancer cells
Vitamin A: is cytotoxic (can damage cancer cells)
Vitamin D3: suppresses free radicals
Vitamin E: immune-boosting effect
Selenium: is cytotoxic
Omega-3 fatty acids: inhibits tumor growth and recurrence (reappearance)
Amino acids: detoxifies and strengthens the cells
Garlic: antioxidant, strengthens the immune system
Green tea: inhibits tumor growth
Ginseng: reduces metastasis
Claws thorn: inhibits tumor cells

Dog Cancer Diet: Prevention is important

An alternative treatment of tumors requires that the natural defenses of the animal are strengthened to prevent dangerous tumors. Here a vitamin-rich diet plays an important role. In addition, toxins should be lead out of the body twice a year. This can be done by means of detoxification treatments or therapies such as acupuncture, herbal therapy, color light therapy or homeopathy.

In our Pet Health Course you can learn all about complimentary treatments yourself.

Ear infection treatment for dogs and cats

Ear infection treatment for dogs and cats

Ear infections must always be treated! By neglecting changes in the ear occur that impede healing. The ear infection can also spread to the middle ear or inner ear.

If the ear infection is chronic otitis media can occur. Very serious chronic ear infections can even cause incoordination and severe brain disorders.

Certain breeds are known to be more likely to get ear infections.

Important factors in the development of ear infections:

ear infection treatment for dogs• In dogs with drooping ears or ears that are almost fully covered by a lot of hair, the ears can not be well ventilated. That is why these animals have an increased chance of getting an ear infection. If you can remove the hair on a regular basis, you reduce this risk.
• If your pet likes to swim, the ears are moist. A warm, moist ear is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. In warm weather, the bacteria multiply faster.
• An ear infection can also be caused by an injury to the outer ear. In the removal of hair or by cleaning the sensitive skin of the ear it may be damaged. Sometimes there is also an innocent pimples in the ear, which opens during cleaning. The skin damage can be infected by bacteria or fungi, and then lead to an infection.
• Inflammation can also arise as a result of an allergy. This way the body is trying to get rid of “impurities”. In this situation your pet usually has a skin disorder, with or without pruritus.

There are two types ear infections:

1. The dry infection in dogs and cats.
This mostly relates to the external auditory canal, called the pinna (outside of the eardrum).

Unusual behavior of your pet in a dry ear infection may be:
– Head shaking
– Scrubbing the ear
– Scratching the ear

If the infection is not so serious, your animal will often find it pleasant when you rub their ear. In serious cases, the touch of the ear may be painful and the animal will show this most clearly.

In a dry ear infection the inside of the auricle is almost always red (to dark red) and the skin is swollen. In the ear is often found a wax-like substance or shed. If the ear infection gets worse it will also begin to smell badly.


With ear drops on the basis of colloidal silver, you can treat a dry ear infection very well.

Ear infection treatment for dogs and catsColloidal silver is used in the form of drops and ointments as an alternative to chemical antibiotics. Especially in the control of bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi it has been found to be very effective.
Beginning of 1900 it was demonstrated by Western science that silver has a strong antibiotic effect. Colloidal silver has been used by many doctors to treat bacterial infections. But at that time to make colloidal silver it was too expensive to patent it. At the same time, the pharmaceutical industry developed its own antibiotics, which is why the clinical use of silver fell into oblivion.
Nowadays it is known that many pathogenic bacteria have become immune to the effects of antibiotics. It was also found that most antibiotics also destroy the beneficial gut bacteria. In practice it has been found that colloidal silver is able to kill many harmful bacteria without attacking the useful intestinal bacteria; the intestinal flora remains intact.
Colloidal Silver is also available as an ointment; this is used in skin diseases.
For the treatment of a fungus with silver ointment the skin must be rubbed locally. The silver ointment should remain on the skin for at least 5 minutes. This is repeated 4-6 times a day; after a few days only success is visible.

2. The wet ear infection in dogs and cats.
In wet ear infection ear in depth is usually moist and sometimes pus is running out of it. In some cases, the ear is red and swollen. It “oozes” at the bottom of the ear. Large amounts of bacteria and / or fungi have formed in there.

Symptomatic Homeopathy
Symptomatic Homeopathy can be additionally used for the treatment at the vet.

The following agents have proven their worth in an acute dosage – 1 tablet or 5 granules at the beginning up to once an hour – until an improvement occurs:

1. Nitric acid at D6 when secretion with fishy odor is appearent
2. Aconitum D4 at the beginning of an ear infection, also Belladonna D4, if the ears are red and swollen
3. Ferrum phosphoricum for mild signs of inflammation
4. Hepar D30 infection with pus
5. Sulfur D12 when the animal smells extremely bad
6. Pulsatilla C200 with otitis media (middle ear infection) – An acute dose for two days if there is no improvement or addition fever is detected, the veterinarian may need to continue to treat with antibiotics.

Suitable complex agents are Traumeel, Apis cum Levistico D3, Vetokehl Not D5.

Color Light Therapy

The Color Light Therapy is particularly recommendable because touches are usually not tolerated or endured by your pet with a painful ear infection. With Color Light Therapy, the healing process can be accelerated and pain can be reduced, so that your four-legged friends can be healthy again as quickly as possible.
