Colloidal silver?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My baby is suffering from overgrooming and the dermatologist has put her on a diet to see if it is food related. My breeder mentioned colloidal-silver might help. Has anyone used this? Can I ask what's the best sort and how much you would give her?

coloidal silver is known to cure almost everything in humans.......The FDA wont verify it....but thats not surprising....the only sideaffect is that it can cayse ...i think its called agyria(sp)...its a permenant blueish tinge to the skin....which as you can imagine would suck!!!!

as for coloidal silver in cats...I have never heard that...and would suggest getting a vets opinion...or maybe better because of what it is...getting a holistic vets opinion might be worthwhile......

My friend has 1 persian with really dry skin to the point of dermatitis, and eye problems. She uses colloidal silver to ease her babies skin problems, and it really seems to help!

I have heard it recommended by vets. I think it is good as a complement to standard medical treatment or in cases where conventional medicine does not offer a solution. But talk to your vet about dosing, because colloidal silver is silver and too much can cause heavy metal poisoning.

I think that as long as it is used topically, you should be fine. The silver is in a colloidal suspension, and the amount of actual silver is something like 5ppm (parts per million), so it is well below toxicity. It is an excellent antibacterial/ antifungal, and it works for me. But you might get a few vet opinions, as many vets (and most doctors) have never even heard of most natural remedies. Don't limit yourself to one opinion - learn all you can!
