Urinary Tract Infection

 

            Take a leaf from a chamomile plant, grind it with a mortar and pestle.  Pour hot water on it, then pour that mixture into a non-metal teapot and cover it.  Steep it 3 to 6 minutes for a tea.  If you want it strong, you can steep it for 5 to 6 hours.

 

            If no plant, buy organic certified in bulk or use a teabag.

 

 

-- Mange or Yucky Skin Problems

 

            To boiling hot water, add about 20 chopped garlic cloves and marigold petals (looked like maybe from 2 flowers).  Let steep for 22 hours.  Then make a poultice and rub it over and over on the sore or skin irritation.

 

            Also, on a sore, rub 2 or 3 drops of lavender oil mixed in water.

 

 

-- Constipation

 

            Give them pureed pumpkin from a can.  She freezes it in ice cube trays.  Let the dog or cat lick a cube, or put it in their food.

 

 

-- Upset stomach

 

            1 drop of lavender oil on a sugar cube.  Or 1 drop in lactose-free milk.

 

 

-- Debilitated Old Animal

 

            Combine the following:

                        2 tbsp. bee propilus and royal jelly

                        2 tbsp. honey

                        2 tbsp bee pollen

                        1 cup lactose-free milk

                        1 vegetable enzyme capsule or 1/3 tsp.

                        1/2 banana

            It looks like she just pureed it and then gave to dog to eat.
