Colloidal silver works to destroy bacterial, fungal and viral infections in cats and dogs just as well as it does in human beings. Furthermore, because colloidal silver is odorless, almost tasteless and non-toxic, experts say you can use it for both dogs and cats internally and externally.

If you are looking for a healthy, alternative way to take care of your pets and avoid expensive veterinary bills, colloidal silver can go a long way in helping you achieve that goal. Whether you are looking for a disease preventative, a way to clean your pet and his bedding or deal with illness and injuries, it can help you.

It is a very inexpensive, easy to make and use alternative to pharmaceutical antibiotics, and it is much more effective at stopping preventing and treating diseases in animals.ore effective at stopping preventing and treating diseases in animals.

Colloidal Silver Knocks Out Deadly Canine Parvo Virus

For example, one of the deadliest and most feared viruses among dog and kennel owners is canine parvo.  But, colloidal silver is a well-known alternative treatment for dogs suffering from parvo, and according to pet owners it has saved a lot of lives.  On the other hand, conventional veterinary treatments fail because they only have antibiotics, which do nothing to stop viral infections.  Yet, they prescribe them in cases of canine parvo and about 80% of the time, the dog dies.

It is Safe for Cats

Colloidal silver is also good for treating cats because it does not have a strong odor and will not be harmful to them if you put it on their fur.  In cases where a cat suffers from a bacterial, viral or fungal skin condition, colloidal silver can be used. 

While many essential oils are effective in combating such conditions and are often safe to use on dogs, they should never be used on cats.  But, experts say you can use colloidal silver without fear.

Topical and Oral Treatments

Colloidal silver is an excellent alternative to both pharmaceutical antibiotics and prescription or over-the-counter anti-fungal treatments for cats and dogs.  It can be given to your pet in his food or water or applied to his skin or fur a few times a day.

A few drops of colloidal silver on a cotton ball makes an excellent eyewash for pets with eye infections.  Persian cats are especially prone to such infections and must have their eyes washed daily.  Using colloidal silver provides extra antibiotic protection.

One or two drops of colloidal silver in the ears of a cat or dog with an ear infection is a safe, fast and effective way to safely treat them.  There's no need for a trip to the veterinarian or expensive pharmaceuticals.  A few drops of colloidal silver can do the job in a day or two.

More Ways to Keep Pets Healthy with Colloidal Silver

Many people like to brush their dogs' teeth. Colloidal silver can be applied directly into a pet's mouth to help reduce bacteria, heal oral tissues and keep the gums and teeth clean. For dogs, it can also be added to homemade tooth powders and rinses.

Whether your pets live indoors or outdoors, they will be healthier and cleaner and so will you when you use colloidal silver.

Keep your pet's bedding clean and free of bacteria and parasites when you regularly spray it with undiluted colloidal silver and allow it to air dry.

One or two tablespoons of colloidal silver in your pet's food or water dish will keep his immune system strong and help prevent disease.

Preserve opened cans and containers of pet food in the refrigerator and make it last a few days longer by adding a few drops of colloidal silver to it.

If your pet is injured, spray or dab colloidal silver on the wound. If possible, bandage it until it heals.

Your dogs and cats are part of your family. Care for them like family members with colloidal silver and protect them from unnecessary visits to the veterinarian. Your cats and dogs will be healthier and live longer.

How to Learn More About Colloidal Silver Uses

It is important to use colloidal silver responsibly. There is a lot of controversy about safe doses because there are no official established guidelines as there are for most other nutritional supplements. Fortunately, an excellent, free 16-page report helps to answer this question, "What's the 'Safest' Daily Dosage for Colloidal Silver." It is available exclusively from The Silver Edge.

The author of this report, natural health journalist Steve Barwick, has done extensive research on colloidal silver. He, also, wrote the 547-page, "Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual," a veritable compendium of information on this subject, which also gives you appropriate dosages and uses for colloidal silver.

    My toy poodle has had a problem with her teeth and may possibly have a disease called CUPS, Chronic Ulcerative Paradental Syndrome. Her appointment to be anesthesized and further examined by a specialist is 2 1/2 wks away and she has been in a lot of pain. From what I understand this condition causes dogs to develop oral lesions because they are allergic to their own plaque. Even with a dog pain killer from the vet wasn't helping. So I put some colloidal silver in an eye dropper last nite and within a couple of hours she was eating, although she's still shaking her head and won't let me brush in the affected area. I am going to continue to use this for the next couple of weeks and see if I can at least heal the lesions or control the bacteria in her mouth in a safe way. This stuff really works.
