Six specific at home remedies for Poisoning and Fever, which you can use right away to Treat Your Pet At Home

Your pet should get a thorough nose to tail exam once a week. Get comfortable in examining your pet. Your pet should be fine with letting you put your fingers in his mouth or brushing his hair to feel for lumps.

The first thing that you have to be familiar with are ‘normals':

Vital Statistics: Pulse and Heart Rate

Normal resting rates:
Cats: 150-200 bpm
Small dogs: 90-120 bpm
Medium dogs: 70-110 bpm
Large dogs: 60-90 bpm

Pulse should be strong, regular and easy to locate.

Checking the pulse

The easiest place to locate a pulse is the femoral artery in the groin area. Place your fingers on the inside of the hind leg and slide your hand upward until the back of your fingers touches the abdomen. Gently move your fingers back and forth on the inside of the hind leg until you feel the pulsing blood. Count the number of pulses in 15 seconds and multiply that number by 4. This will give you the beats per minute
(bpm). If the pulse is elevated, then you may be dealing with a nervous pet, an underlying metabolic disease, such as hyperthyroidism, or a primary heart problem.
If the pulse is slower and weak, then I look for other signs of shock (i.e. internal
bleeding) or a poison, such as marijuana toxicity.

This is what I would advise in the case of poison:


If your pet is showing signs of ingesting a poison, it is important that she is examined by your veterinarian and treated appropriately. Some toxins can progress and lead to severe seizures. If you suspect Antifreeze poisoning, it must be treated within 4-6 hours, before irreversible kidney damage is done.


In most cases of poisoning, getting your pet to vomit is the most important thing that you can do. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING if something caustic has been consumed (such as drain cleaner or bleach). To induce vomiting, give hydrogen peroxide at 1 teaspoon per 10 lbs of body weight. If your pet does not vomit in 10 minutes, repeat again. NEVER do more than two treatments of peroxide.
You can also try salt: dilute 1 teaspoon of salt in a tablespoon of water per every
10lbs of body weight.


Activated charcoal is readily available at most pharmacies. It delays absorption of any toxin by binding to the toxic compound in the stomach. The easiest way is to give the capsule form. For those garbage-eating dogs (such as my own dog) it is a good idea to have hydrogen peroxide and activated charcoal always on hand.


A normal dog's temperature is 101 F (38.0 C), a normal cat's temperature is 102 F
(38.5 C). Taking your pet's temperature involves placing a thermometer in their
rectum. If your pet has a temperature of 103.5 F (39.5 C) or more, they have a fever.
Thermometer should be almost clean when removed. Abnormalities are indicated by
blood, diarrhea, or black, tarry stool. These are some of the remedies I would use if your pet had a fever:
KEEP THEM HYDRATED. Offer plenty of fresh water in different spots around the house. If your pet refuses to drink, use an eyedropper or turkey baster to squirt water into the side of its mouth. For an added boost, add Pedialyte, an electrolyte solution available from the pharmacy; minerals become depleted when your pet is dehydrated. Some pets prefer chicken or beef broth, or tuna juice; give them whatever works.
CALL YOUR VETERINARIAN. If a fever persists for more than 24 hours, and your
pet is not drinking, then CALL your VET.


A common remedy for fighting fever is Hepar sulph (Hepar sulphuris calcareum); give one 30C tablet every 6 hours for 3 days. Arnica is useful in fighting the aches and pains that go along with fever; give one 30C tablet per 40lbs of body weight every 4-6 hours.

Hi Alex,

Welcome to this issue!

Have you ever wondered if your dog has the same senses as you? The answer just might surprise you! In this issue we are going to address that very question and look at some of the most important senses your dog possesses! Read on for more details!

Just like humans, dogs have different senses. However, they just don’t always use them in the same way and order of preference that we do.

A human’s most valuable sense is his sight. Whereas, a dog finds his sense of smell to be his number one sense. This is actually the reason why dogs and humans work so well together, particularly in crime investigation.

With a man or woman’s ability to use sharp eyesight skills, and a dog’s ability to use precise smelling skills, the two make a very compatible team.

Sense of Smell

A dog truly has a phenomenal sense of smell. It is the most developed of the dog’s senses. A dog’s life is to a large extent guided and conditioned by the scents that he picks up.

A dog’s sense of smell is significantly stronger than a human’s. In fact, the lining inside a dog’s nose has about 200 million receptors, while a human only has about 5 million receptors.

Sense of Hearing

A dog’s sense of hearing is also highly developed and highly sensitive. So developed, in fact, that it can pick up on ultrasonic vibrations—which is something humans cannot do!

A dog’s sense of hearing is so sensitive that a sound a man can barely hear at 13 feet, a dog can hear at 80 feet. This is why a dog makes such a good watch dog—he can hear someone approaching from a greater distance.

A dog can really pick up on how we speak to him too. For example, in training exercises, a dog will respond to our words—not necessary because of the words we use but how we say them.

Sense of Sight

A dog is also known for its keen sense of sight. A puppy that is only a couple weeks old has underdeveloped eye sight as it still has a short focal distance. As he develops and grows, his focal distance increases significantly.

However, it is not necessarily a dog’s sense of eye sight that is so excellent, but rather his ability to detect gestures and movements from a far away location—his sense of motion. For example, a dog might not see an animal hiding in a bush, but as soon as the animal moves, the dog can detect the movement.

Since dogs are so low to the ground, they have a harder time determining three dimensions, but it improves with experience and age.

Sense of Touch

Some dogs are highly sensitive to touch and others are not. Handle your dog according to his degree of sensitivity.

A dog’s head includes vibrissae, which are sensitive hairs around both of his eyes, along his muzzle, and underneath his jaw. Additionally, the remainder of his body consists of sensitive nerves. A dog is most sensitive along the spine and towards the tail. This is one of the reasons why a dog enjoys rolling around in the green grass!

Sense of Taste

A dog likes to chew on things that humans would never consider such as magazines, old shoes, electrical cords, and tree branches! Therefore, we tend to believe that a dog’s sense of taste is not as developed as humans.

A dog’s sense of smell is closely connected with his sense of taste. He can detect the difference between something that is sweet or sour, bitter or salty. There are some foods that dogs like to eat, and other foods that they don’t, however is usually happy with anything he can sink his teeth into!

In our next issue of our newsletter, we will look at some other critical elements related to dog training. Good quality dog training resources can make the process of training your dog much easier. Be sure to review the resource box below for more information about dog training topics and resources.

Hi Alex,

Treating Your Allergic Pet at Home

One of the most common reasons that I see dogs and cats in my office is for allergies.

The chronic itching Sucks! It's uncomfortable for your pet and drives some people CRAZY!

Many people have tried so many things... treating for fleas, bathing, supplements, special food... but nothing seems to help.

I first bring em back to the Basics. It's not about the one Magic Bullet, but about systematically ruling out the causes.

First: rule out external parasites by treating for them - for fleas, lice and Mange.

Then do a REAL food trial... a special hypoallergenic food and Nothing Else for 12 weeks. You can make your own and I give you details in my book.

Then look at adding in supplements that will decrease the urge to itch.

  • Essential Fatty Acids.
  • Anti-oxidant Vitamins.
  • Weekly Oatmeal Shampoos.

If you haven't ruled out mange, then get your veterinarian to give the safe topical medication to rule it out now.

Do a proper food trial... Nothing else for 12 weeks!!

Add in a daily fatty acid supplement now!

There are many other options. I give You a HUGE description of every available option that has ever worked for me and my clients in my Home Study course and book.

Here is another testimonial of a satisfied purchaser...

Jonathan Carmichael's dog Argus developed red sores and constant itching. His former veterinarian prescribed steroids. Unhappy with the side effects, he chose to take his pet off medication, but the allergies returned.

Then after purchasing "Veterinary Secrets Revealed" Mr. Carmichael had this to report:

"I was enthralled to see the large number of safe, natural and effective at home remedies for treating my dog's allergies.
Dr. Jones guided me step by step in what to use, and with a combination of supplements including a common Vitamin, Argus stopped scratching WITHOUT the use of the veterinary medication (prednisone). I can't Thank You enough!"

Jonathan Carmichael, Bedford NS

Do You know What to do in an EMERGENCY?

It's gotta be every pet owner's nightmare.

They are going for an enjoyable stroll while their dog froliks with his buddies at the dog walk.

Max races to beat Shorty for the ball... Max inhales the ball.

He gasps for air.... while he's struggling to breath, you run over to him, then he drops.

What would YOU do??

I can imagine what you're all thinking... Just reach inside his mouth and remove the ball. SIMPLE...?

Not So Easy.
First, it's difficult to get your hand deep to the back of the throat, especially in a small dog.

Second, I have seen many balls wedged so far back in the throat, that NOBODY can use their hand to remove them.

The clock is TICKING... YOU'VE got to act FAST.

So Now What?

You could pick him up in Your arms, carry him to your car, and rush to the closest Vet... But You need to go fast, for if you don't get there in 2 minutes, then its TOO LATE.

What would You do with a Choking Person... The Heimlich.

With a Dog: The Heimlich.

  • You Hold him upside down, with his head pointing down and his spine against you.
  • You give repeated sharp thrusts to the abdomen.
  • You lay him down and sweep the throat again for the ball.
  • You repeat this until the ball comes out.

I think that every pet owner should know basic CPR.

If you're like most pet owners and would like to know more about Pet First Aid, then go here and get my new Pet First Aid Manual, "Veterinary Secrets Revealed":

Read this testimonial...

"Dear Dr. Jones,

I have read your book and I am better prepared to handle an emergency with my Dog "Annie". I know how to do CPR on a dog and how to do the Heimlich Maneuver, etc. She is 7 and has arthritis in her left rear leg, probably in the knee. I am going to treat her now with your alternative treatment.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate having this reference book. I recommend it to every pet owner. It's a must have. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you with your "problem" with the association. Thank you.

Dear Alex,
Well not quite red wine for your dog, but that will make more sense it a minute as you read this.
Hope you are well and managing to smile. We can never smile too much can we?

I wanted to answer a question I recently got from Anthony Taylor from Annandale-on-Hudson in York. It's a good question so thank you Anthony.

Anthony writes;

"Dear Sharda,
I have heard and read a lot recently about the benefits of Resveratrol for humans and now for out pets. What about Resveratrol for my dog Edgar?
Thank you.

regards, Anthony John Taylor."

Well , I'll be brief as I can.

RESVERATROL is the buzz word nowadays; everyone is talking about it - from OPRAH to 60 MINUTES. RESVERATROL is a "natural" antioxidant that is commonly found in many plants. RED WINE, peanuts, grapes and blueberries are some of its rich and popular sources.

Though red wine has been known to have health benefits for many years, it was in 1992 that it was recommended that probably THE SECRET of these BENEFITS lies in increased Resveratrol content in RED WINE.

The interest in its researches gained momentum when it is identified that this wonder nutrient in red wine MIGHT BE THE ANSWER to the French paradox that brings into light the question of fewer heart diseases of French people as compared to Americans, while the former consumes a diet higher in fats than the latter.

Researches revealed that this AMAZING ANTIOXIDANT helps in breaking down the stored fat, deposited in the white adipose tissue of your body as the fat is metabolized by the liver.

Whilst not yet totally proven in adults, is it theorized that Resveratrol has many very beneficial effects on both HUMANS AND OUR PETS

I had a look around and there are several Resveratrol options for dogs and THIS WAS THE BEST I could find to date.


PETIPAAWS supplement with Resveratrol is a premium, clinically-tested supplement that claims to promote overall health at all stages of your dog or cat's life.

PETIPAAWS is ideal for dogs & cats that are older, or who are consuming only commercial dog food or home cooked diets.


* Combats aging
* Helps reduce allergies
* Helps manage arthritis
- PETIPAAWS promotes a healthy immune system
- Regenerates your pets internal health & wellness
- Relieves sleep disorders
- Enhances alertness and cognition
- Increases energy and playfulness
- Improves overall skin and coats.

PETIPAAWS provides essential vitamins & minerals to maintain nutrient balance and delivers antioxidant support through Resveratrol.

Resveratrol is an extract from red wine that has been clinically proven to combat the aging-process, promote heart health, and maintain a healthy weight with it's antioxidant power.

The ingredients in PETIPAAWS are essential nutrients for life.

They are involved in many complex processes such as growth, energy production, digestion, reproduction, blood clotting, cell protection, and fighting infections.

Supplementing your dog's diet with vitamins and minerals is essential if you have a pet that is past the puppy stage, or is eating processed food, and also for pets that lead an active lifestyle.

PETIPAAWS has Glucosamine and Calcium- both of which are essential for preventing arthritis in an aging pet, and for rebuilding joint tissue, in the case of pets already experiencing joint distress and arthritis.

Research has found that vitamins and minerals can be beneficial at levels more than the minimum daily requirements, so even if you feed your dog a balanced diet, they can still benefit from supplementation, helping to ensure optimum health for your pet.

Other Benefits of using the PETIPAAWS dog formula include:

- Glossy, healthy coat
- Healthy skin
- Prevent and treat joint distress
- Promote bone growth
- Ensure proper clotting of blood
- Boosts Energy Levels
- Ensure good eyesight
- Promote good healing
- Ensure good immunity

PETIPAAWS Resveratrol is formulated for dogs at any stage of life.

Puppies, adult, and senior dogs have slightly different needs when it comes to maintaining dietary balance, however, this multivitamin with Resveratrol and Calcium will do wonders for a senior pet's overall health.

For those wanting to try it, I suggest you get a free trial if you can and see how you go.

The next time you catch your cat staring at you with its big, luminous eyes, try this: Blink at kitty very slowly. There's a good chance your cat will blink right back.

Many feline fanciers suspect that cats communicate with their eyes. And animal shelter workers will swear that if you blink slowly at even a feral cat, the animal often calms down. Cats also use their eyes to intimidate prey and even each other, as a way of establishing dominance.

And for their size, this animal has a lot of eye to work with. If our eyes were as big as those of any cat, in terms of their largeness per head size, our eyes would be eight inches long, each. Even more, a cat's eyes also bulge slightly, giving them excellent peripheral vision.

You may have noticed that, while you stumble around in the dark looking for the light switch, your cat is calmly navigating its way around the furniture. You may have also noticed that sometimes in a dim room, your cat's eyes will glow eerily. As nocturnal predators, cats have developed excellent night vision. Cats have vertical irises, which can narrow to the tiniest sliver in bright light or open to cover 90 percent of their eye area, enabling the pupil to capture even the smallest amount of light. In addition, a cat has a shiny membrane in the back of the eyes called the "tapetum lucidum," which helps to reflect light back through the retina, enabling the animal to see better in low light situations. That said, there is a limit: cats still can't see in total darkness.

As anyone knows who has watched a bug try to get across the floor and not get pounced on by the cat, this animal is acutely attuned to movement. In our own eyes, rods react to intensities of light, while cones react to color. A cat's eyes have more rods and fewer cones than ours do. This means that while we have better color vision, a cat can detect motion better. But all that sensitivity to motion comes at a price: Cats don't actually see close objects very well. After all, what's the advantage of seeing the mouse once it's in your paws?

Cats also have a third eyelid to protect their eyes as they stalk prey through grass and underbrush. Called the "nictitating membrane," this eyelid rests at the inside corner of the eye. If a feline's eyes are inflamed or irritated, you may see this membrane start to protrude. If a cat is seriously ill or debilitated, the membrane will partially cover the eye (and that's a definite signal to take your pet to your veterinarian).

While it's not completely certain what colors your cat is able to see, there's no doubt that the color of a cat's eyes are simply beautiful -- copper, gold, green, orange, yellow, blue, and lavender. Many cat owners say they chose their cat because of its eye color. Given the power of the cat's eyes, perhaps they were happily mesmerized.

Re: Do we really know what we're feeding our pets?

Hello again to you Alex, and your dog

In the Spring of 2007, pet owners across North America were devastated when upwards of 50,000 pet dogs and cats fell seriously ill after eating tainted pet food.

Many of the animals died. Menu Foods of Toronto, Canada the manufacturer, initiated the biggest recall of pet food in North American history.

In the wake of the scandal, the trust pet food makers so carefully nurtured with pet lovers has been severely shaken, and the $16 billion dollar pet food industry has come under public scrutiny as never before.

Pet owners and governments are asking: Is pet food both nutritious, and safe?
In many cases NO.Most dog and cat food contain poorly digestible Carbohydrates
as the FIRST ingredient. Why? Because they are CHEAPER to add vs better quality, more digestible animal protein.
In selecting a commercial kibble, ENSURE that animal protein is the FIRST ingredient.

You can get a List of my Advised Pet Food List by going here: "Heal Your Pet At Home!"

Does it live up to the claims of its makers? NOPE!
Leather boots, wood shavings and motor oil, which in theory could pass one of the minimum standards for pet food, even though it's inedible.

Pet Food maker are wonderful at making their product sound nutritious, and they add ALL sorts of healthy sounding ingredients, YET in may cases these are in such minute amounts they provide ZERO nutritional benefit.

I firmly believe that in most cases you would be better off to make your pet's own food - You then know the ingredients.
Then add in a Quality supplement. You can see my supplement here: "Heal Your Pet At Home!"

Is the industry adequately regulated? Not At all.
There is a VOLUNTARY governing body, but NO official government regulator- In Canada or the U.S.

Hence the entire Pet Food Recall fiasco.
For example look at how 'the law' treats pets: Pets are considered 'property', yet the pet food industry strongly promotes the view that pets are family members and markets its products on that basis.

Much is needed to change- yet there is little political will to do so.

P.S. So what should you do? Don't just stick with one so called 'trusted' brand. Many of these were affected with the Pet Food Recall.

Rotate the kibble. Make some of your own Pet Food at home.

Consider feeding Raw - even once a week.

TO get my ENTIRE Pet Food Report, including WHAT commercial foods I advise, the Recipes to feed, and HOW to start with Raw, go here: "Heal Your Pet At Home!"

P.P.S. In feeding ANYTHING to your dog, I advise a quality, complete supplement.

It can prevent disease, and add in the 'missing' nutrients lost in commercial food processing. You can grab your trial here: "Heal Your Pet At Home!"
