Colloidal silver is a liquid antibiotic, anti-viral and anti-fungal that has been touted as treating and preventing an assortment of conditions in both humans and animals. Colloidal silver, as opposed to just plain silver, means that submicroscopic silver particles are suspended in a liquid base. Because the silver particles are so tiny, they are thought to penetrate cells and kill pathogens.
Let's look at fantastic benefits of, and uses for colloidal silver -
For dogs, use it for infections, minor cuts and wounds, eye and ear infections and ringworm. When administering orally, 5 to 10 drops twice a day is recommended. As a wound cleaner, apply several times a day on a cotton swab. Ear infection require a few drops daily for up to ten days, while for eye infections one drop three times a day should do the trick.
Cats can also be treated with colloidal silver for feline acne, tear stains, yeast infections, skin conditions and MRSA.
Infection Since colloidal silver is an all-around pathogen fighter, it’s a great one to keep in your medicine cabinet for any disease – whether it’s bacterial, fungal (yeast!) or viral in nature (it can even be used to help treat parvovirus). Plus, it can be used as a preventative when exposure to sick people or animals is unavoidable, and as a regular household cleaner to disinfect surfaces and areas.
Skin Colloidal silver can also be used topically for skin infections like ringworm, wounds and burns. It is soothing and repairs tissue damage.
Ears For those unfortunate dogs suffering from ear infections, colloidal silver might offer some relief. The liquid can be dropped directly into the ears to help fight off bacteria and yeast.
Eyes Colloidal silver can also help treat eye problems like infections, allergies, inflammation and tear staining, because it doesn’t sting, it can be dropped directly into the eyes.
Lungs Colloidal silver has to be one of the most versatile natural immune system boosters – not only can it be used in an incredibly sensitive area such as the eyes, but it can be turned into mist with a nebulizer and used to treat respiratory problems like asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia.
How to Use Now that you know some of the major conditions colloidal silver can help, it’s time to learn how exactly this multitasking liquid can be used:
Oral: A general guideline for oral dosing is five to 10 drops, two to three times per day. Many conditions are helped by both oral and direct application (for instance, use as ear drops AND orally). Because it basically tastes like water, oral dosing shouldn’t be a problem.
Topical: As a wound cleaner, use to clean out affected area with a cotton swab. For skin conditions, spray onto area or use as a compress several times a day.
Ears: Apply a few drops daily into affected ear or ears for up to 10 days.
Eyes: Apply a drop three times a day into the affected eye or eyes.
Inhalant: Use nebulizer with colloidal silver at least three times daily for at least 15 minutes each time.
Note: Colloidal silver works just like an antibiotic, except without real negative effects. But there is one – it will reduce the natural beneficial flora in the gut as regular antibiotics do. So it’s important to follow up with probiotics and prebiotics to help build up the good bacteria back to normal levels in your dog.
Colloidal Silver is known to kill over 650 known pathogens - viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozon. Colloidal Silver has been in use for thousands of years.
Colloidal Silver tastes almost like pure water with just a slight minerally taste, so it is easily administered orally to rabbits, goats, dogs, cats, horses, birds, ferrets, people and other beings.
Colloidal Silver Liquid and Gel is made from 99.99% pure silver (triple-filtered water) with a natural mineral-based gelling agent added to thicken the silver liquid into gel.
