Older Dog Health Questions About Bad Breath, Abrasions, Baldness
Bad breath is often caused by a
digestive system, locking in putrefying toxic wastes. This comes from
having too much dead, refined food and not enough raw, live food or
fiber (roughage) in the diet. A sluggish system will give back the
stench of indigestion, all the way back up to the mouth again.
A dog can be constipated even if he has a daily bowel movement. In
fact, only a few dogs are not constipated throughout their lifetime,
although this is rarely evident to their owners. Infusions of rosemary
leaves and flowers, lemon juice and water, apple juice, raw honey, and
a short fast (several days) will all serve to sweeten up the
intestines. Regular fasting, one day a week, on distilled water and raw
honey, will help to rest the digestive organs on a regular basis,
giving them a chance to catch up on their contents. Use lots of raw
fruits and vegetables in the diet, give yogurt to reinstate the
friendly bacterial flora, and feed only raw or slightly braised meat.
Abrasions are often caused by scratching and biting skin surfaces that
itch. Herbal treatments include an infusion of blackberry leaves,
rosemary leaves, or elder flowers and leaves to which a little witch
hazel has been added. Apply topically to abrasions. It is recommended
that no greasy preparations be used because they will retain moisture
on the skin surfaces and retard healing.
Baldness is a chronic slow loss of hair, due to ill health, is
sometimes found in older dogs. Feed a diet of raw foods: meats,
vegetables, and fruits. Give brewers' yeast, kelp, and desiccated
liver. Add raw corn, olive, peanut, or safflower oil to the food for
unsaturated fatty acids. Chopped dandelion leaves (high in copper) may
be added to the food. Balding areas can be bathed daily with an
infusion of rosemary leaves, marigold flowers, or daffodil leaves.
Castor and eucalyptus oil can also be massaged into the balding areas.
