This is a buzzie.info document created by Nong Obieta. If you use the treatment procedure detailed below, note that you do so at your own risk, and that neither buzzie.info nor Nong Obieta will be responsible for any untoward consequences.
Signs and symptoms of canine parvovirus include the following:1. Foul-smelling bloody diarrhea (often severe) that can lead to life-threatening dehydration Fever. 2. Lethargy (lack of energy) 3. Loss of appetite. 4. Malaise (discomfort associated with illness) 5. Rapid weight loss. 6. Vomiting. If you suspect a dog of having parvo virus, the following is the emergency treatment you should administer: Have all of the following ready: 1) raw eggs, 2) sugar or honey, 3) turmeric powder (durog na luyang dilaw), which you can buy in small packages from supermarkets 4) Loperamide 2mg capsules @ P1.75 each at TGP The Generics Pharmacy. This is the generic inexpensive version of Imodium which sells for P15.00 each 5) boiled chicken 6) one 3cc (3mL) syringe dropper to use on puppies and small breed dogs and one 5cc (5mL) syringe dropper to use on adult and large breed dogs 7) Cefalexin 250mg/5mL Antibiotic Suspension (if you will use this immediately, have the drug store mix it very well for you since it has to be used within 7 to 14 days after mixing with water. You can buy this for P37 to P50 per bottle of 60mL depending on the drugstore. Some drugstores require a prescription (reseta) while others do not. Show photos of your dog to the pharmacy if they require a prescription. 8) Dextrose Powder (from the poultry supply store) or Oral Rehydration Salts in sachets, available as TGP ORS from The Generics Pharmacy at P9.00 each sachet. Procedure: 1) mix one piece egg yolk (yung dilaw ng itlog) without the egg white (hindi kasama ang puti ng itlog) with one teaspoon sugar or, even better, pure honey, and one teaspoon Turmeric Powder (yung durog na luyang dilaw) and mix all the ingredients very well. 2) Take the powder from the Loperamide capsule and mix with 3mL of the egg yolk-turmeric powder mixture, and feed it to the dog using the appropriate syringe dropper. 3) Give the remaining egg yolk - turmeric powder mixture to the dog after 30 minutes, and repeat every 6 hours until the dog’s condition gets better. 4) Mix two tablespoons (if using dextrose powder) with 250mL of clean water, or one sachet of oral rehydration salts with 200mL of clean water, and give it to the dog to drink as often as possible. 5) Take the Cefalexin 250mg/5mL antibiotic, and after making sure that it is properly and thoroughly mixed - check the bottom of the bottle and make sure there is no more powder stuck to the inside bottom, and if there is, shake the bottle some more until ALL the powder has mixed with the water. Using the appropriate syringe, give the dog based on the following dosage schedule, EVERY 12 HOURS for a minimum of 7 days, EVEN if the dog gets better or heals completely. DO NOT use any other antibiotic, such as doxycyline, or amoxicillin, or any type of tetracycline or penicillin, since only cephalosporins, such as cefalexin, are the antibiotics of choice to help treat parvo virus infections. 1 kilo = 0.65mL (point 0.65 mL, so less than 1.0mL) 2 kilos = 1.3mL 3 kilos = 2.0mL 4 kilos = 2.6mL 5 kilos = 3.3mL 6 kilos = 4.0mL 7 kilos = 4.6mL 8 kilos = 5.3mL 9 kilos = 6.0mL 10 kilos = 6.6mL for heavier weights, just use common sense, meaning that if a dog weighs 15 kilos, for example, then just multiply the dosage for the 5-kilo dog by 3, so you would multiply 3.3mL times 3, and you would get 9.9mL, or you can also just add the dosage for the dog weighing 5 kilos to the dosage of the dog weighing 10 kilos, and you would also get 9.9mL. 6) Put the dog on a very strict diet - give only COOKED Chicken, COOKED egg, and COOKED rice for at least five (5) days. DO NOT feed the dog anything else other than this strict diet, plus the egg yolk - turmeric powder mixture.

How To Treat Cats & Dogs with Mange (Galis) Document Author - Nong Obieta, December 3, 2017· Last Edit on 2019.01.21 Legal Disclaimer: By reading this document/article you automatically agree that liability is denied for any possible damage or harm to any animals that could follow the transmission or use of the information, data or recommendations in this document by any site visitor or third party. How To Treat Cats & Dogs with Mange (Gali WARNING - NOTICE !!! !: Herding dogs, with the MDR-1 mutation (e.g. Collies, German Shepherds, Australian Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, Sheep Dogs, and other dogs that belong to the Herding Dogs category, or dogs that look like them) are sensitive to Ivermectin: Maximum single oral dose without symptoms: 0.06 mg (60mcg) per kilo, and if you give a dose greater than 0.10mg (100mcg) per kilo, then the dog can suffer massive neurological symptoms; and if you give a dose greater than 0.15mg (150mcg) per kilo, then comatose conditions with possible fatal outcome can happen. STEP #1 The first thing to do in cases like this where a stray dog or a cat has mange (galis), is to give the animal Ivermectin, which comes in tablets, capsules, sachet powder, or injectable liquid. What I ALWAYS do when I have the opportunity, is to feed the animal pandesal (some kind of breakfast bread) or some rice with some viand (ulam) such as sardines, or corned tuna, etc., along with the necessary amount of Ivermectin required to cure the mange. In my case, I always have pandesal, ivermectin tablets and capsules, and some cheese spread in my car. Note: Ivermectin can be purchased at any poultry supply store, and the price ranges from P10.00 to P15.00 per tablet or capsule or sachet powder, depending on where you buy it. CORRECT DOSAGE: Dogs - 300mcg PER KILO PER TREATMENT (a total of 2 treatments required) of body weight for sarcoptic mange, and 400mcg-600mcg for demodectic mange, Cats - 200mcg PER KILO PER TREATMENT (a total of 2 treatments required). WARNING: 1) Puppies and kittens under 6 weeks old should not be given ivermectin. 2) mcg and mg are completely different from each other. 3) mg and mL are also completely different from each other. 4) dosage and dose do NOT mean the same thing - dosage is the amount (volume) of medicine that you will be administering, while dose is the number of times you will be administering the treatment: EXAMPLE: Give a dosage of 10.0mL for a minimum of 7 doses in one week. or one dose per day. Note that each tablet of Wormectin (a brand of Ivermectin) contains 150mcg, while each capsule of Ivicide (another brand of Ivermectin) contains 250mcg. So just estimate the weight of the animal and give the required dosage, BUT, if the animal appears sickly or weak, or if you are not sure, then just give a small percentage, like 20.0% of the required dosage, to at least STOP the spread of the mange, and repeat the treatment every few days until you have completed the first full treatment. For stray dogs or cats, if possible, dip the tablets OR capsules in anything sweet, like jam, peanut butter, chiz whiz, etc., then add the tablet or capsule to the food, and feed it to the animal, while making sure that you DO NOT OVERDOSE as it can kill the animal. In cases where you believe you will see the dog regularly (like kung naka tambay lang sa isang lugar), give the dose over a period of several days, and then repeat the process 7 to 10 days after the first treatment is completed. But the process must be repeated ONLY ONCE. So for example, the dog (or cat) needs 3 tablets of Wormectin, you can give only one tablet today, another tablet tomorrow, and the 3rd and last tablet on the 3rd day. Then, wait for one week and repeat the treatment as stated above. But if the animal is already living with you, or if you have the capability to bring the animal home with you, then there are more things you can and SHOULD do to heal the mange much sooner (read below). STEP #2 : Give the animal an antibiotic Purchase a bottle of CEPHALEXIN (CEFALEXIN) suspension from your local drugstore CATS = 0.60mL PER KILO of body weight DOGS = 13.75mg PER KILO of body weight Give the dog or cat Cefalexin every 12 hours, for at least 7 days. Make sure to buy the 250mg/5mL, and if you end up buying the 125mg/5mL then you have to double the dosage. Co-Amoxiclav, another suspension antibiotic that can also be used, comes in 4 varieties, as listed below (NOTE: Co-Amoxiclav is always labeled with 2 dosages, one for Amoxicillin, and another for Clavanulate, and you would have to add the 2 dosages together to get the total dosage in the bottle of that specific variety): 150.25mg 228.0mg (this one is labeled as 200.0mg + 28.5mg) 312.5mg 457.0mg You can purchase any of the above, and you would then use the following formula to compute the dosage amount to give to your cat or dog, (using an example of 2.20 kilos in weight FOR A DOG): a) = weight of animal (example 2.20 kilos) b) = MINIMUM dosage per kilo (which in this case is always 13.75mg per kilo) c) = A times B = 30.25 dosage (2.20 times 13.75) d) = C divided by the dosage on the label of the bottle, for example, 150.25 or 228.0, or 312.5, or 457.0mg. In this example it would be 30.25 divided by 228.0 = 0.13 e) = D times ??? (PM me for additional information) Giving Co-Amoxiclav, or any other broad spectrum antibiotic, such as Doxycyline or Cefalexin, that helps in healing skin infections will help speed up the treatment of the mange infection. Like Co-Amoxiclav, you can give Cefalexin (Cephalexin) 250mg/5mL suspension antibiotic, every 12 hours or twice a day, based on the following weight:dosage schedule: 1 kilo = 0.60mL (so a little bit over half mL only) 2 kilos = 1.20mL 3 kilos = 1.80mL 4 kilos = 2.40mL 5 kilos = 3.00mL and if the animal weights more than 5 kilos, just add or multiply the above dosage based on the respective weights. For example, if the animal weighs 7 kilos, then add the dosage for 2 kilos to the dosage for 5 kilos, or add the dosage for 3 kilos to the dosage for 4 kilos. Or if the animal weighs 15 kilos, then just multiply the dosage for 5 kilos times 3, etc.. STEP #3 Bathe the animal first using sulfur soap, and then rinse the animal very well. Then, bathe the animal using Lori’s Madre de Cacao soap (or any other brand of madre de cacao soap) or Vetnoderm soap , BUT this time, do NOT rinse the animal - WAG babanlawan ang aso or pusa. Instead, get a damp sponge or face towel and wipe the excess soap away, and then just leave the rest of the soap to let it dry on its own It is safe and is not dangerous even if the animal licks the soap. One bar of madre de cacao can bathe 10 dogs or 20 cats, and each thorough bath will also protect the animal from ticks and fleas for around 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the infestation in your residence. Note: Madre de Cacao soap can be bought at any poultry supply store or at vet clinics for P65 to P100, while Vetnoderm soap sells for P95 each.
How to Prepare a home-made Doxycycline Solution (a much cheaper alternative to Commercial Preparations)
How to Prepare a home-made Doxycycline Solution (a much cheaper alternative to commercial preparations) Authored by Nong Obieta, November 26, 2017 How to Prepare a home-made Doxycycline Solution, a homemade much cheaper alternative to Doxyvet or Papi Doxy, which are usually recommended by many vet clinics. Doxycycline is available in capsules or tablets The capsules are much cheaper, easier to use (the tablets can clog the throat of cats n kittens), and can be measured for exact dosage. The capsules come in 250mg per capsule, usually sold at P2.50 each. Cats require a dosage of 5mg per kilo of body weight per dose every 12 hours, or a total of 10mg per kilo per dose per day, Dogs require a dosage of 10mg per kilo of body weight per dose every 12 hours, or a total of 20mg per kilo per dose per day. 1) Take the powder from one capsule by slowly and very carefully twisting the 2 parts of the capsule, and make sure that ALL the powder from the capsule drops into a small glass, after which you will now have 100mg of Doxycycline powder in the glass (that’s 100mg per capsule). Add 5.0mL of mineral or purified water to the powder in the glass, and you now have a 5.0mL Doxycyline solution in the glass. PLEASE NOTE the difference between mg and mL. and the dose should be given for NO LESS than 7 days, or a total of 14 doses, and, depending on the illness you are treating, could be up to 28 days(equivalent to a total of 56 doses) , as is the case with dogs suffering from serious ehrlichiosis (caused by ehrlichia). The dose should always be given every 12 hours, so choose the correct time to give the dose, like from 6am-9am for the morning dose, and from 6pm-9pm for the evening dose. NOTE: mg is not the same as mL NOTE: Vets in the USA usually recommend that doxycycline be given every 12 hours, although vets in Europe usually recommend that doxycycline be given only once a day. The choice is yours, depending on how much free time you have. Doxycycline is best given after meals or on a full stomach for better absorption, but it is not a requirement. Doxycycline is extremely bitter, so it is best to add water (not to the 5mL solution) but only to the amount you will be giving to your animals. So if you compute the requirement of a specific animal as 1.5mL per dose, for example, then add water only to the 1.5mL and not to the 5mL solution you had prepared with one capsule. So, follow these examples below to be able to compute correctly: Example #1: Dog weighs 17.5 kilos, then a) 17.5 x 10mg = 175mg is what you will need to give the dog per dose, so you need to mix at least 2 pieces of 100mg capsules, for a total of 200mg, since 1 capsule will only produce 100mg. b) then, since you have to mix 5mL of clean water for every 100mg, or for every capsule, in this case you have to add 10mL of water to the powder taken from two capsules. c) then, since you have to compute how much mL (not mg) you have to give your dog, you have to compute 175mg divided by 200mg, which will result in 0.875, which you will then have to multiply by 10, since you now have a 10mL solution, and you will get the result of 8.75mL, which is the amount you have to give your dog every 12 hours for at least 7 days, and perhaps longer depending on what you are treating the dog for. Example #2: Cat weighs 1.80 kilos, then a) 1.80 x 5mg = 9.0mg, so you need to mix only one 100mg capsule b) then, since you have to mix 5mL of clean water for every 100mg, then add only 5mL of water c) then, since you have to compute how much mL (not mg) you have to give your cat, you have to compute 9.0mg divided by 100mg, which will result in 0.09%, which you will then have to multiply by 5, since you now have a 5mL solution, and you will get the result of 0.45mL, which is the amount you have to give your cat every 12 hours for at least 7 days, and perhaps longer depending on what you are treating the cat for. A Doxycline solution can be kept at room temperature for 14 days, and should NOT be refrigerated. Any remaining solution should be discarded after 14 days. That’s it, it is truly as simple as that. Note that you assume ALL risks and consequences by following this suggested solution, and Nong Obieta and PAWA cannot be held liable for any reason.
*** POISONED DOG OR CAT? Has your dog or cat been poisoned? Nilason or nalason ba ang iyong aso o pusa? there are so many reports of dogs and cats being poisoned. I have posted MANY MANY TIMES that all animal owners, animal rescuers, and all animal lovers should stock up on EVAPORATED MILK because it is the least expensive kind of milk available) to counter any poisoning. As soon as you suspect that an animal has been poisoned, whether your animal or someone else's animal, or even just a stray animal, give it as much milk as you can, and that will stop the poison from spreading and will most likely save the life of the animal. Evaporated Milk is extremely affordable, so DO NOT WAIT UNTIL AN ANIMAL IS POISONED before taking action.
Cat Burns - First Aid Emergency Treatment How to Treat a Cat That is Burned BY SHELDON RUBIN ©2006 PUBLICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, LTD. STEP 2 Cats are naturally curious and always getting into things they shouldn't, so an important part of cat care is knowing how to treat a cat that is burned. There are different kinds of burns that can happen around any household, so knowing how to care for each type of burn is important. Cats have a high threshold of pain, so you must look for signs that a burn has occurred. A cat may experience first, second, or third degree burns or a chemical burn. Products such as drain cleaners or paint thinner can cause serious skin damage or, if swallowed, poisoning. To prevent accidents of this nature, these products should be kept out of the cat's reach. A burned cat is likely to be frightened, especially if he or she thinks it's being cornered by you. Use extreme caution when approaching a cat that you suspect has a burn. To provide proper cat care, use the following tips. First or Second Degree Burns The warning signs for a first-degree burns include fur intact or singed, painful lesions, or red skin with possible blisters. Warning signs for second-degree burns include singed fur and painful lesions that turn tan with swelling and blistering. Step 1: Approach the cat carefully. If your cat is nervous or anxious, restrain the cat if necessary. Step 2: Apply cold water or ice packs to the burned area; leave in contact with the skin for 15 minutes. Do not apply ointment or butter. Step 3: If burns cover a large part of the body or are located where the cat can lick them, cover with a sterile dressing. Do not use cotton. Step 4: Wrap torn rags or other soft material around the dressing and tie or tape just tightly enough to keep it in place. Step 5: Transport the cat to the veterinarian as soon as possible. Third Degree Burns The signs for third degree burns include destruction of an entire skin area, black or pure white lesions, or fur that pulls out easily. Also, watch for signs of shock, which include pale or white cat gums as well as rapid heartbeat and breathing. Step 1: Approach the cat carefully. If your cat is nervous or anxious, restrain the cat if necessary. Do not apply ointment or butter. Step 2: Apply a sterile dressing over the burned area. Do not use cotton. Step 3: Wrap torn rags or other soft material around the dressing and tie or tape just tightly enough to keep it in place. Step 4: Transport the cat to the veterinarian immediately. Chemical Burns The signs for chemical burns include chemical odor such as turpentine, gasoline, or insecticide; reddened skin; and pain. Any external chemical exposure can become an internal poisoning due to the cat licking and cleaning the area. ©2006 PUBLICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, LTD. STEP 2 Step 1: Approach the cat carefully. If your cat is nervous or anxious, restrain the cat if necessary. Step 2: Wash the area thoroughly with mild soap or shampoo and water. Lather well and rinse thoroughly. Repeat as many times as necessary to remove the chemical. Do not use solvents of any kind. Step 3: Apply a soothing antibiotic ointment to the affected area. Step 4: Call the veterinarian to receive further instructions. ©Publications International, Ltd.
This is a PAWA Document - Created and Updated by Manny Manapat If your cat or dog is suffering from a cold and is having difficulty breathing, then this is what you should do. NOTE that the medicines listed can be mixed before you give them to your cat or dog. Go to your local drugstore and buy 1) ANY of the following: Ambroxol Hydrochloride 30mg/5mL - if this is what you are able to buy, then give your cat or dog 1.0mL PER KILO of body weight, every 12 hours for the first 7 days, then 0.50mL PER KILO of body weight every 12 hours for the next 7 days. NOTE: This item is also being marketed as Pulmoquin, sold by pet stores and vet clinics for anywhere from P150 to P300 per bottle, but you can buy this for only P30 per bottle from drugstores. OR Ambroxol Hydrochloride 15mg/5mL -if this is what you are able to buy, then give your cat or dog 2.0mL PER KILO of body weight, every 12 hours for the first 7 days, then 1.0mL PER KILO of body weight for the next 7 days, OR Bromhexine Hydrochloride 4mg/5mL - if this is what you are able to buy, then give your cat or dog 6.0mL, PER KILO of body weight, every 12 hours for the first 7 days, then 3.0mL PER KILO of body weight for the next 7 days, This medicine is usually given to very young kittens. Each one of these is approximately P30 per bottle of 60mL You MUST continue to give the dosage for the required number of days even if the animal no longer shows the symptoms, or the animal may become immune to the antibiotic. Try to buy the variety with the Strawberry flavor so that it is easily accepted by the dog or cat. Lemon and Orange or no flavors are often rejected by the animals, making treatment more difficult. ADDED: 2) one bottle of Salbutamol Guaifenesin - this helps the cat or dog to EXPEL the mucus that is softened by the Ambroxol Hydrochloride. This is extremely important if your animal, especially a cat, has become too weak to expel the mucus on its own strength, so this will surely help. This should be given with or after the Ambroxol Hydrochloride at the rate of 1.0mL per kilo of body weight. WARNING: Although a very small percentage of the feline population, some cats, although very rarely, are allergic to Salbutamol Guaifenesin, and this could increase their heartbeat, so if you notice this happening, STOP giving this medicine immediately. 3) one bottle of Cefalexin (Cephalexin) 250mg/5mL, approximately P37-P55 per 60mL bottle. You should ask the drugstore staff to mix this for you very thoroughly, until there is no more powder left sticking to the bottom of the bottle. When you get home, and before giving this to your cat, make sure to shake the bottle very well again until you are very sure that there is no more powder stuck to the bottom and sides of the bottle . Then, assuming your dog or cat has no skin infection, administer 0.44mL PER KILO of body weight every 12 hours for a minimum of 7 days, and a maximum of 14 days, even if the animal no longer shows any symptoms of sickness, or your animal could eventually be resistant to Cefalexin. BUT, if your dog or cat also has some kind of skin infection, then you must increase the dosage to 0.60mL per kilo of body weight. If the drugstore only has the 125mg/5mL variety of Cefalexin, you would have to double the dosage stated here. Refrigerate Cefalexin (and all antibiotic suspensions) when not in use, or, if you do not have a refrigerator, then make sure it is not exposed to heat or the sun. Also, make sure to discard (throw away) any left-over Cefalexin after 14 days. 4) several capsules of Doxycycline 100mg capsules. Please read our other document on how to make a Doxycycline solution, and follow the instructions there, and then mix the CORRECT AMOUNT of doxycyline solution with the solution suggested in this document linked here https://web.facebook.com/notes/pawa... 5) two pieces of 1.0mL (same as 1.0cc) syringe dropper, but remove the syringe before using it, and two pieces of 3.0mL (same as 3.0cc) and 5.0mL (same as 5.0cc). The 1.0 is to be used for cats, while the 3.0 and 5.0 syringes are for use with dogs. If you have multiple dogs and cats, then it would be very wise and beneficial for you to purchase a Nebulizer to help your dogs or cats breathe much easier during and after nebulization.
Deworm Multipolest P22.00 (approximately just US$0.42) ! - Important UPDATED Dosage Info EDITED 2019.07.22 Added Info on Deworming Nursing Cats and Dogs This is a buzzie.info document created by Nong Obieta. Planning to deworm your dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens? Then what you should buy and use is MEBENDAZOLE HEMILAX 100mg/5mL which you can purchase from TGP The Generics Pharmacy for only P22.00 per 60mL bottle, compared to the well known Pyrantel Embonate Nematocide sold at vet clinics and poultry supply stores for P300 or more per 60mL bottle. Also, Mebendazole Hemilax kills more types of worms than Pyrantel Nematocide does , based on official research. Mebendazole - much lower in price, but much more effective. UPDATED DOSAGE INFORMATION: Cats & Kittens, Dogs & Puppies: 10.0mg per kilo of body weight- equivalent to approximately 0.50mL or 1/2 mL per kilo of body weight- 2 times a day (every 12 hours), for 5 consecutive days. NOTE The stated dosage of 0.50mL or 1/2mL applies only if you will be using the suggested de-wormer, and not any other brand or type of dewormer.. Kittens need to be de-wormed starting at 2 weeks of age, then every two weeks until 12 weeks of age, then monthly until six months of age. When they reach 6 months of age, ALL cats and kittens need to be de-wormed every three months for effective protection. Puppies should be treated for intestinal worms at two, four, six, eight, ten and 12 weeks of age, then monthly until they are three months old, When they reach 3 month of age, ALL dogs and puppies should be dewormed every 3 months. ADDED INFO: De-worming NURSING CATS & DOGS. Yes, all cats and dogs should be de-wormed before mating, after mating, and while nursing their babies. And yes Mebendazole is very effective and very safe. Also, contrary to what some vets claim, Mebendazole is effective against Tapeworms. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mebendazole Mebendazole has no residual effect. This means that a single administration (meaning completing the 5-day doses) will kill the parasites present in the host at the time of treatment, but it will not protect against re-infestations. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have any question(s), please DO NOT message me to ask your question(s), since you have to read our Disclaimer, plus it is actually better to comment here with your question(s) so that other readers can participate and also give their advice and suggestions. Besides, I do NOT reply anymore to any messages asking for medical advice as I have no more available time.
Emergency Treatment for Dog Burns If possible, flush the injury immediately with running cool water over the burned area. In order to decrease the inflammatory reaction to the burn injury, hold an ice pack (crushed ice and water mix) wrapped in a soft towel gently against the affected area. Seek veterinary attention immediately.
