eat spray lick

took Cici to the vet this week. she has lost 12-14 pounds… she had fleas (do not see anymore, thankfully), she may have worms, and she has a terrible skin infection. Without her cone on her head, I have to be REALLY vigilant, or she will make a bloody mess of her rear end in under two minutes.

Questions I have not yet asked the vet (we go back for a follow-up in two weeks)… did the fleas drink 12-14 pounds of her blood or did the worms eat up all of her food (because I was feeding her twice as much as normal and she kept dropping weight)… is she EVER going to stop scratching, itching and chewing on herself????

Lessons learned again:  even when you want to do the best thing, all natural remedies and treatments need to be advised by and / or treated by a knowledgeable pet expert / holistic vet.  I learned that Cici cannot tolerate essential oils (she gets rashes) and some recommended home remedies do NOT work to relieve itching or fleas. I found out that grains and coconut oil, for instance, sweetens the blood and attracts fleas. I stopped giving it to her immediately.  gave her a nice grass fed beef broth made with parsley, a clove of garlic and water, for two days…

the vet techs gave her a medicated bath and I gave her one too at their instructions and she is still itchy…  she was given confortis for the fleas, a de-wormer pill, and is on antibiotics twice a day (hidden in hot dogs)… she is eating a grain free diet for the next couple of weeks (rabbit, turkey burgers, and meat meat meat), not prescribed by the vet… but hoping to hulk her up.

also hope to strengthen her immune system so that she can get her weight back.  have found a way to give Cici ASEA every day, add some raw meat or butter to it and she licks it right up… since I have been giving this to her, she does not seem as scrawny, bones do not seem to be protruding as much. I spray it on her itchy spots and when she chews on herself to alleviate the itch and the spray works really well…

ASEA helps cells work more efficiently and empowers the body to repair itself. It also increases cellular efficiency and intercellular communications… amazing molecules

I also hope to be able to get these products for Cici that were recommended by Pet communication expert Kate Solisti…
