What if I told you that I had manufactured a food that contained everything you needed to keep you healthy and all you had to do to prepare this wonder food would be to open a tin or packet and pour it out?

Writing in the British medical journal, 'The Lancet' in 1914, Dr. Henry Crooks found that ''silver in the colloidal state is highly germicidal, quite harmless to humans and absolutely non-toxic. Rather than in a chemical compound, the silver in the colloidal state may be applied in a much more concentrated form, with correspondingly better results.''

'Green Peez herbal remedy
transformed my lawn.'
I’ve got a small garden and a medium sized dog. A few months ago, my garden was covered in brown marks caused by my dog peeing on the grass. This phenomena, known as lawn burn, is so frustrating – especially for those of us who are obsessed with their garden. If you are lucky enough
'Reddish brown marks under the eyes of white coated breeds of dogs are unsightly. My bichon frise Toby, has suffered from these marks for many years.
When the stains first appeared, I took Toby to the vet. My vet gave Toby a clean bill of health after a thorough examination and suggested that the tear stains were possibly genetic (in which case little could be done).'

Are you worried about the effects of chemicals on your pets?
Why not make your own safe, non toxic flea repellents?
CITRUS REPELLENT: Cut a lemon into quarters and place in a pint jug. Cover the lemon with boiling water and let it steep overnight.

Is your dog scared of fireworks, thunderstorms and loud noises in general? Shivers and shakes, likes to hide somewhere if possible, desperately tries to escape and if you’re unfortunate to be out on a walk when a firework goes off, your dog may well flee into the night in fear?
Does your dog suffer from separation anxiety when left home alone and perhaps either howl or bark in distress and so disturb the neighbours, or else they’re chewing your home and possessions and

Take a baking tray and pour in a about a centimeter of water with a couple of drops of washing up liquid. Place a lighted tea light in the middle of the water and leave on the floor for a few hours.

Ear Problems and their Causes
'Ear problems are often the effect of something else wrong in the body'
Ear problems are unfortunately very common among dogs. While others may suggest using a chemical solution or immune-suppressive drugs, I prefer to try to treat ear problems in a more natural way. Ear problems are very often the effect of something else wrong in the body, such as a food allergy. Remember when you are treating the ear, you are usually just treating the
Bells on cats – we’ve all heard of that idea. Put a little bell on your cat’s collar and sneaking up on birds or other wildlife will be impossible and your cat’s kill rate will drop to zero. But a bell on a dog’s collar? What use can that possibly serve except to annoy you and the dog?
