Pet Food Recall Protocol

 

IF your dog or cat has been affected by the recent Pet Food Recall, please read the following. We are attempting to provide information to help these affected dogs and cats, in an effort to help them get healthy and well again.

POISONING

To remove poisons from people or pets bentonite clay OR activated charcoal:

 

Animal Weight
Bentonite Clay
Activated Charcoal
0 to 10 lbs.
1/2 tsp
1/2 capsule
11 to 20 lbs.
1 tsp
1 capsule
21 to 30 lbs.
1-1/2 tsps
1-1/2 capsules
31 to 40 lbs.
2 tsps
2 capsules
41 to 50 lbs.
2-1/2 tsps
2-1/2 capsules
51 to 80 lbs.
1 tbsp
3 capsules
81 to 100 lbs.
1-1/2 tbsps
3-1/2 capsules
101 to 120 lbs.
2 tbsps
4 capsules
121 to 150 lbs.
2-1/2 tbsps
4-1/2 capsules
151 to 200 lbs.
3 tbsps
5 capsules
 
 

Dose either the Bentonite Clay or the Charcoal Capsules (empty capsule and mix with water to make a wet slurry and syringe down the throat) every 2 hours for a total of 8 hours. Then give once/day, until your pet exhibits normal behavior again. When dosing Bentonite or Charcoal dose away from food or natural remedies, as these natural anti-poisoning products will sweep poisons and toxins out of the body, but they will also remove the good things. Bentonite clay or charcoal can be given via enema as well.

Dr. Pitcairn's book, "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats", page 436, advises for poisoning:

 1. Give granular activated charcoal. Mix 5 heaping teaspoons of granules in 1 cup of water. Depending on the animal's size, give about 1/4 to 1 cup by spoonfuls in the cheek pouch. If this causes excess struggle or worsens symptoms, discontinue. Your veterinarian will be able to apply treatment under sedation or anesthesia.
 2. Give Nux Vomica 30C, a few pellets on the tongue every 15 minutes for a total of 3 doses. Do not continue treatment if the symptoms worsen.
 3. Keep the animal warm and as quiet as possible. Stress has a very negative influence.
 4. Call the National Animal Poison Control Center if you know where the poison came from. Call 800-548-2423 ($30 credit card charge per case) for specific advise on treatment or antidotes.

RENAL (KIDNEY) FAILURE

NOTE: ALL alcohol based tinctures should have the alcohol evaporated out, as alcohol can affect the liver. It's easy to evaporate out the alcohol, just take the required number of alcohol tincture drops and add the same number of drops of hot water or hot Pedialyte (or other electrolyte fluid). Wait 60 seconds, then administer.

Use the Bentonite clay or charcoal in additional to:

Use Amber Tech's Internal Gold Detox Kit. The Internal Gold Detox Kit contains: Kidney Rejuvenator and Life Cell Support, administer them as follows:

Administer the Kidney Rejuvenator once/day for 5 days, then twice/day 30 days. Take a 5 day break, then give 2 to 3x/day for 30 days. Continue this 30 day cycle for at least 60 days after the dog's BUN levels have come down to normal levels. Administer the Life Cell Support 4 to 5 times/day for 30 days, then off for 5 days, and on again for 30 days as needed.

If your dog or cat is NOT eating and is in kidney failure, also use the Urinary Tract Relief. This will help cleanse the urinary tract, in conjunction with the Kidney Rejuvenator and prevent bacterial or fungal infection.

TOXIC LIVER

Poisoning can destroy the liver. Fortunately, the liver is one of the few organs that CAN be regenerated 100%.

You can do the following to help cleanse and detox the liver, in addition to the Internal Gold Detox Kit to help cleanse, detox, and regenerate the liver. Do this especially if your pet is having white colored bowel movements or if you see a yellow/jaundiced look in the eyes which should be white.

Milk Thistle - This works great in enemas, along with the fresh lemon juice above. If your pet is keeping down oral fluids, give orally, otherwise give this via enema

Turmeric -  Excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-carcinogenic, cardio and gastrointestinal effects and great for the liver. You can find this herb at a health food store. Note, Turmeric will stain things it touches yellow/orange.

Lemon Juice (Fresh) - Fresh squeezed lemon juice alkalizes the body, helps cleanse the liver, and is high in vitamin C.

INFLAMMATION

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) - is an excellent natural anti-inflammatory that will help reduce inflammation and pain quickly. You can purchase 1# of "Pure" 100% MSM powder or crystals at a feed store for about $13.00. You can also find it at a health food store, Walmart, pharmacies, etc.

When dosing pets with severe inflammation/pain, you double the initial dose for the first two weeks (though, hopefully, you will not need to give for 2 weeks). Doubled dose rates are given below. If necessary to treat your pet longer than 2 weeks, then back off on the dose below to one half that amount after 2 weeks. Expect your pet to appear more relaxed and comfortable within an hour or two of dosing.

Turmeric - http://www.encyclopedia.com:80/doc/1G1-80532262.html Excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-carcinogenic, cardio and gastrointestinal effects and great for the liver. You can find this herb at a health food store, Walmart and some pharmacies.

Vitamin C - Preferably a buffered form, such as Ester C, calcium ascorbate, sodium ascorbate, etc. Vitamin C has excellent anti-oxidant properties, mild anti-inflammatory properties, detox, and immune system support.

Dose the MSM and Turmeric, if you can obtain both, 1/3rd the daily dose, 3x/day to equal the daily recommended dose. You can give an initial dose of one-half the MSM daily dose, then split the other half of the daily dose into 1/4 for the remaining two doses for the first day. These products are similar to the qualities of aspirin without aspirin side effects (one which can be death in small children) which is why it is necessary to dose 3x/day.

These products can be given orally, if they are keeping oral fluids down, or given via enema which can actually have better effects than oral doses. Vitamin C (use preferably a buffered form such as sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate or Ester C) as it is easier on the stomach. Vitamin C is eliminated from the body within 2 to 4 hours of ingestion, so it is best to dose small amounts, numerous times/day to reach the daily recommended amount.

Pure aloe juice - http://www.aloe-vera.org/top_10_reasons_to_use_aloe_vera.htm can either be alternated with regular pedialyte (or other electrolyte fluid doses) or you can use half aloe and half pedialyte for each enema dose, mixed with the above ingredients. Aloe has lots of excellent properties, anti-inflammatory, soothing, healing, and laxative are the reasons we are using it for these severely inflamed pets.

Use the liver detox remedies (milk thistle & lemon juice) as well in each enema given. Mix well. Expect the turmeric to stain the pet's fur and or your fingers a nice yellow/orange color.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT put ANY toxic substances in or on your pet. This means, do NOT:

1. Vaccinate your pet(s)

2. Give flea, tick, or heartworm preventatives

3. Chemically worm your pet with pyrantel, panacur, ivomec, nemex, safeguard, etc.

4. Feed commercial kibbles or canned foods, if at all possible. This recall is NOT over yet and there are possibly other foods that are affected. Thousands of pets have died, some from just a few meals of these bad kibbles and sadly, some people have lost every single dog, cat, or both family pet members in their household because of these toxic foods! :o( Seriously consider either feeding a raw or cooked human grade meat diet or a holistic "human grade" kibble. Just because a bag of kibble says "holistic" doesn't necessarily mean that is what it is. Lots of species appropriate canine and feline animal nutrition info is here: Animal Nutrition

These toxic substances are poisons and will further toxify your pet's body. PLEASE, do NOT allow these things to be given to your pet as it will only serve to further lower their immune system AND toxify the kidneys and liver further.

Other helpful remedies would include:

1. Feed food grade diatomaceous earth - this helps detox heavy metals, sweep some bacteria out of the system, naturally eliminate internal parasites, cleanse the bowels, and provide 15 minerals.

2. Feed green food, such as organic kelp, or spirulina, or chlorella or similar. These natural green products contain over 60 vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to help detox, provide essential mineral support, etc.

3. Feed raw liver at least 3 days/week. If you are having to force feed your pet, you can puree the liver in a blender. A 30# dog can easily tolerate 2 tbsps. of liver daily. Organic liver is best, if you can find it at your local health food store. This will help provide nutritional support for your pet's kidneys, liver, prevent anemia (great natural source of iron), and provide lots of excellent vitamin A to nourish the immune system.

Some of these affected pets are exhibiting signs of anemia. Feeding raw liver, preferably organic liver a few days/week can help prevent anemia, as well as nourish the liver (which will have some toxicity, due to the renal failure and the kidneys not functioning properly), plus provide tons of vitamin A which is good for the kidneys and excellent for the immune system.

4. Give plenty of clean fresh water. Do NOT give tap water use only filtered or bottled to avoid chlorinated or chemicalized water which will further stress the kidneys.

5. Avoid: processed, overcooked, spoiled, or commercial foods; excessive heat; unnecessary exposure to chemical products, car fumes, cigarette smoke, and polluted environments. Brush skin and coat regularly. A weekly bath with a mild, non drying shampoo is useful as the skin is the largest eliminatory organ and it will help detox the body. Regular mild outdoor exercise and exposure to fresh air and sun, provided the animal is capable.

8. Regular mild outdoor exercise and exposure to fresh air and sun, provided the animal is capable.

9. Acupuncture can be very helpful for animals with kidney disease. Regular acupuncture can help slow the progression of the disease, stimulate the kidneys and boost the overall vitality of a dog or cat. http://dog-health-website.blogspot.com/2005_05_23_dog-health-website_archive.html

10. Include vitamin B12 injections with acupuncture.

11. Contrary to popular myth, diets rich in protein ("high protein levels") do not cause kidney damage. Research done decades ago indicated that rodent kidneys were adversely affected by diets high in protein...and misguided researchers extrapolated that data to apply to the canine. There is no evidence that feeding dogs and cats diets rich in or "high" in protein actually causes kidney damage or disease. Some day this myth will be finally be put to rest. In fact, there is ample research and well documented studies that prove that dogs and cats thrive on diets with levels of protein consistent with a meat-eater's (carnivore) natural prey selection. Read more about protein in dog and cat diets http://www.thepetcenter.com/imtop/protein.html

12. All animals need energy and this can be supplied by:

  • Fats - provide the most energy per gram
     
  • Proteins - especially important for cats
     
  • Carbohydrates
     
  • Vitamins, minerals and water do not supply any energy.

    The following nutrients are essential :

  • Water - the most important nutrient
     
  • Essential amino acids - in proteins
     
  • Essential fatty acids - in fats/oils
     
  • Minerals
     
  • Vitamins
     
  • Although carbohydrates, and fiber are beneficial to cats and dogs, they are not essential.

    Canine Diet for the Kidneys

    Excerpted from Dr Pitcairn's book, "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide for Natural Health for Dogs & Cats":

    1 1/3 cups (2/3 pound) ground chicken, turkey or lean heart
    4 cups cooked white rice, enriched
    4 eggs
    2 tablespoons cold-pressed safflower, soy or corn oil
    1,500 milligrams calcium
