Natural treatments for dogs with bells palsy.
Buddy’s owner called me in great distress as her beloved 7 year old collie was very ill with what the vets had diagnosed as Bells Palsy.
The vets had told her there was nothing they could do so she was a bit desperate. When Buddy arrived you could see the right side of his face was drooping and paralysed, his right ear was also dropped down and he was constantly drooling from his mouth on the right side. He had lost a lot of weight, had very itchy skin and yeast infections in his ears.
He had been given antibiotics and cortisone tablets from the Vets and was currently on another course of Cortisone Tablets that she had found to be ineffective.
When I questioned his owner she told me that Buddy had nearly died a year ago from tick poisoning and a few months ago she had found another paralysis tick on Buddy which fortunately had not sent him to the vet hospital.
Dog immune system boost treatment
We needed to treat Buddy’s immune system to get on top of the yeast infection so he was started on Transfer Factor.
We also started him on a Probiotic to reseed his gut from the antibiotics he had been given from the Vets.
As Bells Palsy is often caused by tick bite and Lyme’s Disease we needed to detox his system from the tick and we used Homeopathics to treat the Lyme’s Disease and the Bell’s Palsy.
We also changed Buddy’s diet to a healthy species appropriate raw food, which he loves.
I am very happy to report that Buddy has made a full recovery with no more dribbles and droopy face and his yeast infection and itchy skin are things of the past. His owner is very happy and tells me that her Buddy has regained his status as a very handsome dog.
