    Question Canine Advise from a Holistic Veterinary

    How long does it take for your body to become primal? How long does it take to be healthy, or to be cured? There's never an answer to these questions and it's different for everyone, but there must be a minimum for a healthy, young person.

    So: my daughter-in-law loves her two Welsh Terriers (Marley and Rudy) very much. Marley got a skin rash all over his body and was taken to the vet who prescribed pills. This went on for several months and several pills while Marley's skin got redder and more swollen and more itchy, until it was bright red and Marley was tearing at it with his teeth, making it raw and bleeding. A groomer recommened Holistic Vet, to whom Marley was taken.

    Amazing. The Holistic Vet. put Marley on PB, but with raw meat and fish and our same vegies. This dog food comes freeze-dried and pre-packaged by some other company. They also have raw liver treats. After only 3 days Marley's skin can be seen to be a little better.


    The answer to our questions for Marley is 6 months to be completely cured and well. Marley is very small. How long do you suppose it would take an adult human?

    Could be even longer depending on the damage done and how long the problem has been there. Have a dog story too but will post when not on phone.
    Yay for your dog. Did vaccines come into it with the holistic vet?

    No vaccines, although this vet said most all vaccines are useless. Remember I said minimum time. Marley may be healther than we are.

    The holistic vet just said they were ineffective. A rabies shot, for example, had been shown to be effective only for 1 day. I don't know any more than that.

    I would really like to see some data to support that. Any idea what resource your vet used?

    Rabies is still present in many reservoir species in this country and I would suspect more rabies outbreaks in dogs if vaccines were that ineffective. Countries where rabies vaccines are not used have frequent rabies outbreaks in dog population. Plus, from an immunologic standpoint - nothing would really be effective for only 1 day - not much in your immune system works that way.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    It depends because diet is only part of the solution. There's also play and sleep to consider.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    My dog had 7 years of steroids for bad skin, commercial dry food, and dog roll, yearly vaccines, monthly flea treatments etc.
    Then 4 years ago I found a small tumor on his ear, and looked into natural ways to treat him. I found Holistic Animal Medicines, who treat herbally and homoeopathically.

    I used black salve, along with some other remedies to treat him, as well as changed him to a raw diet, and stopped all chemicals for him.
    Last year I went back to dry food, grain free, but still, then another tumor popped up on his anus this time, treated it the same way, but recently 2 more came up, so again treated them the same way. But I think because he was unhealthy for so long the damage was already done for him, so now Ill just treat them if they come up again. He is still his normal happy self so will take each day as it comes. He is 11 now.
    It just shows what damage these foods and other things can do.
