Home Remedies For Pets

Author : Pet Nanny


The following are some natural remedies to help your pet in certain situations.

For natural flea control - groom your pet daily. Use a fine toothed flea
comb. Bathe your pet a natural pet shampoo that has flea repellent herbs. During
summer wash your pet's bedding in hot soapy water weekly and dry in hot dryer.
Vacuum rugs and mattresses in the house every 2 or 3 days. Dust natural powders
containing herbs such as rosemary, wormwood, rue, eucalyptus and sometimes
tobacco powder to repel fleas. Add garlic and brewer's yeast to your pet's daily
diet. Try rubbing the yeast into your pet's fur.

Bad Breath - Foul odor is the sign of plague. Brush your pet's teeth, feed
them raw carrots, and avoid canned food or scraps of food lying on the table. If
the problem still persists, get the vet to clean your pet's teeth.

Choking - If you pet is choking, open the mouth to see any object stuck and
remove it. If you pet is not breathing and you are unable to find out what's the
obstructing the air passage, try the Heimlich maneuver. You hold your pet
against you, clasp your hands around the upper abdomen or make your pet lie down
on their side and put one of your hands on top and another just below the rib
cage and then push or lift upward to dislodge the object. If you're
unsuccessful, see the vet immediately.

Diarrhea - If you detect any hint of diarrhea in your pet, ensure that pet is
drinking lots of fluids. You can stop feeding for 24 hours from the onset of the
disease. When the pet is ready to eat again, try giving easily digestible food
every 4 hours for 2-3 days moving to regular food when your pet is diarrhea
free. If the problem still persists, seek medical treatment as it could be more
serious issue.

Flatulence - Exercising helps to move the gas out of the system, so taking
your pet for walk several times in case they suffer from flatulence. Give your
pet, yogurt that contains bacteria the helps to decrease gas problem.

Itchy Skin - For you pet's itchy skin, give them a cool 10 minute bath. For
dog's itchy feet, fill the tub with enough cool water to cover their feet,
dissolve a couple cups of Epsom salts in the water and soak your dog's feet for
10 minutes. Do not let your dog drink this water.
