natural methods take time to work.
they may take a couple of days or up to even years to see the effects.
medicines or whatever stuff prescribed by vets may not necessarily be good. sometimes they do more harm.
even natural products that are made specially for dogs, may not be safe, UNLESS, the label states:
– for both humans & animals
– tested on humans
– human grade or fit for human consumption
if one uses a product on your animal & you see instant or almost immediate results, this should sound off the alarm & question of “is this product safe?”
We know many dog owners want “quick fix” or are scaringly anxious & panicky to want to see their beloved dogs heal. But sometimes, it’s better to let their bodies heal on their own naturally, with the right type of food, amount of exercise & environment.
Our mummy used to be one of them.
Baubles has skin outbreaks once in awhile still. But Mummy is already immuned to it as she noticed his body will heal on its own – but it takes time.
During the time when he had eye infection, it took about 8 – 10 months for his eyes to heal fully. He had another round of infection (similar to the previous one) about 2 months ago but it was much less severe. Again, it took almost 2 months to heal.
Vet couldn’t pin point the cause. Neither could Mum.
But the fact is, the natural methods that Mum tried (albeit long), worked wonders.
Coffee’s had a bald patch on her snout in April, due to her bad habit of incessant scratching & rubbing.
Seeing bald patches on their own dogs would have sent some owners into frenzy again.
No doubt Mummy was worried that the fur may not regrow. Anyway, she tried some natural & safe methods & 1 month later, she saw results. Here are the before & after photos:
The fur has grown back fully, after 1 month 🙂
And she’s happy knowing that the method she used is safe & has no side effects on Coffee.
So between safe, natural but slow healing methods vs that of fast, instant but potentially harmful healing methods, Mummy will always choose the earlier.
