To remove fleas from any animal, carpet, or whatever:

Pure white vinegar. Buy in the gallon containers and don't be stingy with it. Discount grocery stores sell it cheap, so use as much as you need.

The vinegar remnves smells, fleas, and kills other parasites on your dog or cat all while leaving them with a very healthy coat.


If your dog is losing hair, and its skin looks scaly underneath, apply coco butter everyday for a week, and it clears up right away...


Dandruff shampoo makes an excellent flea bath.


How to keep your cats from using your inside floor plants as a litter box.

I had a problem with my cat using my inside plants as a litter box. Didn't matter that the litter box was clean, the cat just wanted to go in my plants, getting dirt all over the floor and making a huge mess. Not to mention that my plants suffered from it.

Put tin foil on top of the dirt around the plant/tree. make sure you cover all of the dirt that you can see or get to. Leave just enough room so you can still water the plant. This worked 100% for me. My cat stopped using my plants as a litter box and finally my inside banana trees started growing.


If your dog is killing off the grass with its wee, feed it cooked mashed pumpkin, it takes some of the acid out of the wee which is causing the dead patches.


I cured my bunny's skin infection by applying pure coconut oil. Massage gently everyday twice. Could get messy, fur and all but is effective.


If you happen to find a baby bird or birds without their mother what do you do? Well if they are covered in feathers then you should probably do nothing. Observe them from a distance and wait to see if their mother comes for them. But if they are bald or have pin feathers(look like pins sticking out of the birds skin) then you may have to care for them. You should always try to contact a wildlife agency to come and get the bird or birds, but if you have NO OTHER OPTION then hopefully my information will help you to care for the birds ONLY UNTIL THEY CAN FLY AND BE RETURNED TO THEIR NATURAL HABBITAT!
OK, first get the birds into a warm dry , and clean place. A cardboard box with some sort of liner will work fine. If you feel like they will be more comforable you can even make a nest out of a bowl with a old washcloth in it or toilet paper works great too. The bird or birds will eat ALOT also so feeding them if ver imporant also. NEVER feed a baby bird bread or insects....that includes earthworms. Either give them canned dog food of you can take dry dog food and soak it in warm water. Then makevery small bites, about the size of a pea, and put them into thier mouthes when they open them. They will cry to be fed. And should respond very willing to eat. NEVER GIVE THEM WATER!! Giving them water will kill them. They are getting all of their water in with their food. Make sure that their home is kept very clean. Bacteria in their feces will make them sick, and it stinks too. When your birds are covered in feathers and their eyes are opened start taking them outside, and try to get them to fly. You will have to work with them, but it will all be rewarding to see them fly away, knowing that you saved their lives! I hope this helps someone! I am currently raising three chimney swifts, I got them out of my fireplace after their nest fell through the chimney. The were completely bald with their eyes closed, and I have now raised them for three weeks and they are all diong well. We go outside for a little while each day where they try to fly (but dont get too far yet) and play in the grass. They are fun, but it SO MUCH WORK!!! I will miss them, but will be glad when they return to the woods!


If you are clipping your dogs nails, and you have gone to far and hit a vein, to stop the bleeding either take the cooking seasoing ALUM and out the powder on the tip of nail, the bleeding will stop. If no Alum take a bar of soap, espeically the one in your shower and place nail in soap as if to clog the flow and the bleeding will stop almost idmediatly

If you have a dog that won't quit barking, jumping, tearing things, jumping the fence, etc. (hyper), I have been given mine 1 Benedryl (or equivalent generic/store brand) capsule, and after 20 minutes, if that doesn't work another one. Can hide it in a piece of bread or cheese. This calms them down. Of course, the ideal solution is to walk or exercise them to get them tired, but that's not always possible.


I had a tiny toy Poodle for 18 years. Easter weekend he got sick & couldn't get to the Vet til Monday. He was having kidney failure & the Vet wanted to put him to sleep. I took him home & put him on Noni juice, for over all health, aloe vera, for his stomach & mouth, & parsley water to keep his kidney's open, mixed in his food. He perked up & stayed healthy until his time came in Dec 5th the same year. I was able to hold him, rock him in the rocker, & sing to him as he passed of old age across the rainbow bridge...
There is always an alternative available for all of us. I don't want to suffer even though death is waiting for all of us. We don't have to suffer to get out of here.
Pau D'Arco combined with yerba matte herb will get rid of pain & the disease of cancer, which I can attest to.
Another good web site is Lots of good info on apple cider vinegar, peroxide, baking soda, & more....another is

Good luck to all, & don't allow the evil death of disease rot away any life form... Make it an ease/easy out...
Many Blessing of good health to all!
