They were (sorry, this is gross...) repeatedly vomiting, they had continual diarrhea, they were bleeding, they lost all their energy & could hardly move, they wouldn't eat or drink, their eyes were sunken in, & even their fur began to look mangy. It was SO sad. With Lucie, it lasted most of the day, & she only got worse as time went on.
I quickly got online & started researching. All I could find were random remedies for various conditions, so I started experimenting.
I gave Lucie several drops of colloidal silver, rubbed "thieves" essential oil on the pads of her feet & on her belly (diluted first), I put 1 drop of frankincense essential oil into her mouth, & I gave her some raw coconut oil mixed with raw honey & a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Wait... wait... wait... All we could do was wait.
I kid you not, within about 30 minutes, she was perking up. From there, it was all up hill. She started improving & never quit. Every couple of hours, I gave her a few drops (3-4) of colloidal silver & continued to put the "thieves" oil on her feet. By the next day, she was fine! A little tired, but mostly back to her old self. All of her symptoms were gone & they never came back.
As soon as Jack started showing the first signs, I did the same thing with him, & within less than an hour, he was improving also.
I don't know if it was any one of these remedies that fixed them, or if it was a combination of several of them. But they worked! Later that day someone we know told us their dog had the same symptoms & they had to take theirs to the vet. It cost around $200, if I remember right? SO grateful we had some simple things on hand to help them heal & avoid the cost & stress of a veterinary hospital. And even more grateful that we still have our little Jack & Lucie :)
