We mentioned previously that Baubles had eye infection.
To be exact, he had Blepharitis, which is basically inflammation of the eyelid.
Mummy never sent him to the vet. We know most humans would have criticsed Mum for not doing so. Mum has her reason for not sending him to the vet.
Mummy suspected his Blepharitis was caused by food allergy. The main culprit could be Spirulina.
It may sound weird but if you do google up, humans & animals can have allergy towards spirulina. Mum has stopped giving this to Baubles.
We’ll be showing you a photo of his eye taken several weeks back. Please do not be alarmed. You may find the photo disturbing.
Yes, this is how swollen his lids were. And not only were the lids swollen, fur around the area & eye lashes were gone.
Mum tried herbs from the Petalive range & applied onto his eyes initially but it didn’t work that effectively. For awhile, Mum saw some improvements but after awhile, the condition deteriorated.
Finally, Mum decided to try Silver Sol.
For about 1.5 week. Mum saw improvements.
Baubles’ eye lid has not healed fully but it’s looking much better now.
Here’s the now. Fur has started to grow back & eyelashes are growing back slowly.
Sorry for the not so clear photos. Mum took it using her phone cam at night.
The swell has subsided slightly. As with all alternative treatment, please be patient. Do not expect to see results immediately. If you want quick fix, go to the vet.
Mum is also supporting his eye with this supplement called Vision Enhancement. He will be put on this supplement for a short period. Do exercise caution & discretion when feeding supplements. Mum loves this range of herbal supplement. You can check them out at their website . They have a wide range. They are all meant for humans by the way.
Please do not attempt any of this on your dog, unless you know what you are doing & is confident enough to do it.
Our purpose of posting this is to share with you the effectiveness of Silver Sol. Google up on it & you will realise it has many uses, even for humans.
Baubles was never born healthy. He’s from the farm. So it’s not surprising that he has a host of issues. Up till now, he still has existing medical conditions which the vet has diagnosed through x-ray 2 years ago. The only treatment is surgery. Mum is trying to keep them under control.
You may find it surprising & ask, Baubles is on a raw organic diet. So shouldn’t he be in fantastic, tip top condition?
Mum’s reply to this will be:
“Diet plays an important & in fact, a huge role, no doubt about it. But genetics as well. Diet can only help to improve his health but it cannot convert him into a perfectly healthy dog. Time & again, I have stressed that barf / raw diet is not a miracle diet. Yes, it may work wonders for some dogs. And some dogs thrive perfectly on this diet, living a good 20odd years. Some even having zero health or skin issues with not a single vet visit. But every dog is different. Please remember this. If you noticed, most of the time I blogged about Baubles’ health issues, but not Coffee. Comparing the 2, Baubles is the weaker one. Yes, he’s the less healthy one. They are different, very different.
I am not afraid to be honest about Baubles’ health issues, despite him being on an organic raw diet. Because I hope this serves as a reminder that no matter how good a diet is, it can never be a perfect one, as it cannot create miracles. But, neither am I trying to dampen anyone’s hopes. I would still advise people, if your dog is weak or has health issues like skin or immunity problems, go the organic & raw way. Try it. Results may not be guaranteed but if you don’t try, you won’t know. Over the course of 3 years where both my dogs were on raw, of which they were only given organic probably a year ago, I have, undoubtedly, seen vast improvements in both their health.
Back then, Baubles was in such a bad shape. He had no energy ie lethargic & he’s always falling sick. He is so much better now. And I’m glad that I have chosen this diet for him & Coffee.”
