It is a big step for people to look for natural antibiotics for dogs. Mostly it comes after these same people have benefited themselves from natural antibiotics for infection. But sometimes it occurs because people dislike the side effects from taking drugs, or from the fact that drugs, as chemicals, are toxic to the body. Not forgetting the fact that drugs are suppressive in nature.
However, before you go searching for appropriate and natural remedies for dogs with an infection, please take time to appreciate what really happens in health and disease. The way the current western world thinks about this is not accurate or true.
Veterinarians (and doctors) tend to treat the effect of poor health (disease), rather than the cause. They do not understand the real causes of disease, and if they did, they have little to offer.
Infections are a classic case in point. Infections are a result of a disturbance. They are not the cause of the disturbance. Infections can occur after an injury, but they can occur when the body is fighting off an invasive pathogen, such as a virus. So the infection comes AFTER the disturbance. It is not the disturbance itself.
This means that if you deal with the cause, ie the disturbance, in an appropriate way to support the body, in this illustration the injury or the virus, then the healing will be faster, less complicated and easier. Not only will no infection occur, or if already established, will be healed, but so too will any pain be resolved quickly, and the virus speedily dealt with.
So instead of only thinking of infections and the need for antibiotics, think of the cause that resulted in an infection.
Infections occur as a result of the body trying to establish healing when its immune system is not strong enough. Every healthy body is already teeming with bacteria which helps to maintain life. The problems arise when the number of bacteria explode. Bacteria are opportunistic. They are not the bad guys. The same logic applies to flies infesting a pile of rotting meat. The flies are opportunistic. They are not responsible for the rotting meat.
When the body has a strong immunity, infections won’t occur even after a strong disturbance. A virus will be forcibly expelled through the action of a violent fever. A bad injury will naturally heal with rest.
So health is more about how strong the immune system is, than about infections and the need for antibiotics.
Getting back to the topic of natural antibiotics for dogs leads us (naturally) to natural medicine for dogs. Of the various sorts, I suggest that homeopathy offers the deepest action, the best results, in the fastest time. And the great bonus is that dogs love homeopathy, when you get the right remedy, that is. No coercion is needed.
In the example used above, the appropriate homeopathic remedy to speedily heal the injury, to prevent or heal its existing infection, as well as to allay any pain would be different from that needed for the virus.
This is why it is important to understand the way of health and disease, rather than to search for just a natural antibiotic for dogs. Trying to use the logic of medicine in natural health care doesn’t work. The reason for this is that medicine labels disease, whereas homeopathy doesn’t. Homeopathy wants to know your dog’s personal causes and symptoms, not the medical label.
Your search for natural antibiotics for dogs is commendable, but let it take you on a journey of discovery that will reap you and your dog many more rewards. If you are new to homeopathy, then the best way to start this journey is to consult with a professional homeopath.
Once you know more about it and have experienced its amazing healing abilities, then you can try your hand at home prescribing. This is very empowering, saves you oceans of money, lots of time, not forgetting the (often deep) anxiety that always comes with ill health, especially of loved ones.
Well done for taking the first step!
